I've been trying to create some cards and gift ideas! Boy oh boy do I have a lot planned for Christmas! I can't really say what they'll be but my mind is a churning!!! I really need to get a jump start given our trip to Disney is planned in the month of December! When we get back I'd like to have all my daycare and Keegan's school party stuff DONE by Thanksgiving!! Think I can do it? Wish me luck!!!!

I made the cutest Sesame Street card for a dear friends daugther Addy and Ella. I then got her a build a bear gift ard along with some PJ's for her new furry friend. Instead of just putting it in a gift bag or a random box- I made the box out of 12x12 Stampin Up Paper. It was really easy- even for someone like me who STINKS at measurements! Seriously- I can't measure. For some reason I'm missing that part of the brain about how to measure. I don't even think any kind of book "Measurements for Dummies" would work for me. Nope- it just doesn't click. So- my solution is to eyeball everthing. They some people can play music but can't read it... those like me can craft but can't measure. Ahhh...... For Ella I got her a train set and a girlie train (Rosie!) and a little tea set! I made the box for Ella out of 1 sheet of 12x12 paper. I don't have pics of that... (whoops!).

Here's a card I CASE'd from Kerry from Kerry's Paper Crafts. Maybe I can figure out how to link to other websites! I love this card!

Then I made some cute little boxes for my sister-in-law who is about to have my brand new neice! As a thank you to the hospital staff I made these little boxes for her to give to all the nurses as a thank you. SHe appeared to like them. Inside were little Hershey Nuggets wrapped in Designer Series Paper. Although retired- very pretty. I used an image of a baby I had kicking around.

Check these out... how cute are these to bring to a party? They are brownie pops! You can merge paper craftng with baking! These are just a brownie mix in a Wilton Brownie pop mold. Then I made some tags using the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punch and the scallop circle punch from Stampin Up (my total favorite punches of any!) I stamped the imagine, punched a hole and tied it on with some ribbon and PRESTO!!! So easy and so cute!! I'm going to make these for Keegan's birthday party and school party.

I'll upload the pics of the darling matchboxes I made for Ann later and the other Sesame Street card.

Here are little barrettes I made for my adorable niece Delanie! I think she'll really like them! I made the little box to put them in too! So easy!!
