Webster's Goodies

I haven't had a chance to post all the goodies
I've been making with Webster's Pages!  Now
that my computer is back...Wahoo!!  I can
share some Christmas goodies:

Their beautiful Royal Christmas line is AMAZING!!

Made these goody bags to fill with chocolates, and
another little surprise....a gift card tucked into that
pocket on the front!  Here is a pic of how I used
Scor-Tape to hold the pocket in place:

Simple and easy....but super cute!  I also used
their gorgeous glittery ribbon along the top edge
of the bag, and used their little tags as a cute
little gift tag at the top.  A touch of Trendy Twine
finished it off perfectly.

Are you ready for Christmas?  I've still got a few
"crafty" things up my  Be sure to stop
by....and let me know what you're crafting...would
love to stop by your blog and see what you are up
to as well!

A Penny for Your Thoughts....

Do you journal?  It's something I would truly
love to start.  It really only takes a few minutes
a day, and you can pour out anything on your
heart and mind.

One thing I'd enter about the fact
I was asked to be a part of the Chicagoland
Scrapbooker Magazine DT!!  Very excited....
and can't wait to see what the next year brings!

Right now....they are doing a gift series every
Monday....and the first is....journals!  Here
is my project:

I used the Echo Park For the Record 2 "Documented" collection.
Love their stickers....they make crafting easy!  Finished off with
Hug Snug seam binding, a Tim Holtz charm, and Want2Scrap pearls.

If you'd like to see the other DT journals....stop by HERE.

Now all I need to do is start to actually WRITE in

Get Some Happy on today....Get Crafting!!

Keep the Holiday Simple

Trying to keep stress at a minimum this year! 
So these cards are quick, easy, and still super
cute!  Love Echo Park....this is the Season's
Greetings line from last year.....still one of my
faves!  Playing with the new EP Christmas
"This and That" today....we'll see what goodies
I come up with there!

As for the pic:

And a close up:

The holly is a Tim Holtz stamp....I edged
the holly in Black Soot Ink to make it pop
a bit.  I'm not good at walking away from a
more "plain" card....but this is about quick
but cute!  So there ya go!

Have you started your holiday crafting?
