Silhouette Santa Clause Gift Card Holder with Lori Whitlock

’Tis the Season and Santa will be here before we know it!  I’m having fun creating lots of cute gift card holders for my nieces this year.  Lori makes this fun and easy with her cute cutting files … isn’t this cuter than an envelope??




Although the file is easy to cut and assemble, Lori does have this You Tube video in case you want to see how each of the pieces go together.  

Make this a handmade holiday and have fun creating your own gifts this Christmas!

Family Scrapbook Album with Simple Stories Legacy

Just hopping on the blog tonight to share a new album (DIY kit and premade) that was added to the shop today.  This album is one of my all-time favorites.  The reason... it focuses on my priority....Family!

As many of you know, I lost my mom at an early age and many of the photos in the boxes at my Dad's house are just that...photos.  They aren't memories.  I don't know the people or the stories behind the pictures.   I wish I did....and as I always say ...  someday, someone, will want to know your stories :)  Preserve your photos, tell your stories .... start now!








Purchase yours at Artsy Albums today!  Family Memories Album

Halloween Scrapbooks and Kits On Sale!

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween!  Jack and I sat outside under blankets with a small propane heater so that we could stay warm while we handed out candy. It was a chilly night here in Georgia, but we enjoyed the costumes and the eye rolls from the teenagers when we couldn't guess what they were dressed as.  Ha Ha...

With Oct. 31 behind us, I've put the rest of the Halloween scrapbook kits on sale.  I have a couple of each left and want to make room for all of the Christmas goodies that are coming in.  So print those costume, party, and pumpkin pictures and create one of these fun projects -- someday, someone will be glad you saved the memories :)

Christmas Mini Album Kit with Echo Park's Christmas Cheer

If you know me, or follow my blog, you know I'm a huge Lori Whitlock fan.  Not only does she design fabulous goodies for Echo Park Paper Co., Sizzix, etc.... but her SVG cutting files are just adorable.  For my latest mini album kit, I decided to use the Christmas collection she created for EP, as well as one of her new Santa cutting files.  I just love how he peeks through the window on this one :)

The first run of the mini album kit is available in my Etsy shop now!





This album would make a wonderful gift for a friend, or just to keep all your December Daily, Christmas, tree-decorating, gift-opening, santa-visiting pictures in! It would even be a great teacher, hostess, or Baby's First Christmas gift!  The album is a great size to display on a shelf or coffee table during the holidays, or to carry in your purse to share with friends.  And you can't deny this Santa is CUTE!
