Whymsical Christmas and New Years Hop Dec 28-29

Happy Holidays!!!!

Today we are here to hop for the Whymsical Blog hop which lasts two days, Christmas (day 1) themed and New Years (day 2)...

This hop is hosted by Jessica and if you have come to be by chance please head to Jessica's blog to start but if you followed the line you should have come here from Jackie

For my post I decided to go digital, I know I have been promising for a couple weeks now so I figured this would be perfect....

Day Two:

Day one

I wanted to make the layouts fun and themed and I hope that you all like it. I used the MyMemories Suite V3 Digital software which you can find on the top right side of my blog with a code for a discount and if you purchase the software you will get another code for more credit off. I also have a freebie I will be posting later this week so keep an eye out. This digital stuff is new to me but I love it!!! They make it so easy for you and if your like me I store my photos on the computer or sd card so that I don't have tons of photos to store so this is perfect for me.

If you make a comment on this hop and every post from now until Jan. 15th I will give one commenter/follower a free copy of MyMemories V3!!!

Next stop...

This is a short hop so please leave comments on all blogs and you can be entered for candy from our sponsors(detailed on Jessica's blog)

Stuff I have been doing...

Hey fellow crafters!!!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA however I will be hosting a giveaway for the newest version of MyMemories. You can use the link on the left if you would like to purchase the program and get $10 off your purchase and an extra bonus after! I am working on a number of layouts on the program and once I have them completed I will be posting so you all can see how great this software is.

Okay, so I have been working and creating and living the life of a mother and I haven't posted in a while so here are a few of the things I have made...

I have about 11 more frames that I worked on and a couple more Layouts but I have not taken the photos of them yet.

Last week I also decided to have a small party for my oldest daughter because her birthday is actually 12-23 but its not the best time for a birthday because people normally have budgets and she only gets one combined gift for birthday and Christmas. I had a friend of mine make the cake and it came out amazing and of course it was of my daughters favorite Justin Bieber. In the photo below she was being super silly! I also made her a Bieber colored name banner that I haven't put up yet but when I do I will take photos. 

Have a SUPER and CRAFTY day!!!!!

12 Days of Christmas

If your looking for the Christmas Cards Blog Hop click here

Welcome to Day 9!

So for today I am giving you just a peek into what I made today. It took me all day off and on to get this entire album done and I was trying not to over do it but I didn't want it too plain so I had to fight myself MANY times, LOL.

I got this entire idea from Laura at Following the paper trail (another favorite of mine) and I jumped out of bed and got started. I of course had to take a number of long breaks but in the end I love how it turned out. Now, since this has taken me so long and I have work tomorrow and Sunday I will be at a craft fair I won't have time to make another item so for tomorrow I will post more pics because in all there are 10 double sided pages and each page has a full insert because the pages are made of envelopes like Laura showed on her blog

I really don't even want to get started on the supplies because basically I took my stamps and placed them on the chair next to me and went to town...lots of sentiments in this album!

Hope you like it so far!!!

12 Days of Christmas -day 7

Welcome to day 7!!!

I was finally feeling better and stood up late making this album. I recorded a video but lost it somehow and I was too tired to try again so I will post a video later today.

I used the same Warm Wishes paper pad and a paper bag idea from Kathy at Paper Phenomenom for something new to me. This is actually my 2nd album and my first from scratch. I'm hoping to sell this one at a craft fair this weekend so I wanted to keep it simple enough.

I hope the pictures give it justice!!

I am posting again from my phone and cannot include links so please see day 6 for all the blog links and the next stop is Veronica

Have a crafty day!!!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 6

Welcome to day 6 of our 12 days of Christmas and we are now half done.

I am happy to say that I do have my voice back and for the most part I am feeling much better but now my baby girl is having tummy issues...

For this post I used a card that I made a couple weeks ago but never posted. I actually had a lot of fun with this card and I hope you can see the fun texture on the little mouse, he is so soft.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments they have been putting a smile on my face!!

12 Day of Christmas - Day 3

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas hop!! I am very happy to be a part of this 12 day hop and it is really keeping me on my toes.

 which means you came to me from but if not please start with and come back there is still one more stop after me...

Today I wanted to make a banner and I used a paper stack I got from Michael's and for this banner I cut everything myself from the papers either with my trimmer or my scissors. This banner brought me back to when I started scrapping and I had no tools and had to use my paper for everything I wanted. I think it came out cute.

I actually took these photos from my phone at 3:15 am while everyone else was sleeping so the lighting is not great and neither is the photo quality, for this I am sorry!!!!
I hope you like my banner and please let me know what you think honestly.
