Abby's craft night

Tonight I decided to take a break from everything and let Abby play at my scrapbook table. She gets very excited to see what she can play with. So tonight we made a couple of cards for my boss' daughters. My boss is the very first person we had ever left Abby with and she has been adopted into their family.

I can't wait for when she's older and we can sit down together and do more crafty things. Don't get me wrong, I love it now but it takes so long to do one project because I still have to do pretty much everything....oh well that time will come :)

Here is the card she made for the girls (she made one for each of them but they are identical), plus she "signed" the inside of the card. I think she did pretty good for a 2 year old :)

The stamp used was Christmas Stocking by Gillian F. Roberts through Stampavie and the papers were all from Close to My Heart. Abby used various colored pencils and gel pens and a couple metal snowflake charms/buttons from Joann's.

Club Anya Blog Hop

We've asked and they have listened....


Here are the catagories of the hop

The HOLIDAY HAPPINESS AWARD will go to their favorite overall project of the evening and win the entire December Anya release!

THE WHO you callin' a HO HO HO award will go to the BEST use of Santa or Mrs. Claus on a card or project (you do not have to have Xmas sweeties to play-you can improvise!)

The ALL WRAPPED UP award will go to the best display of altering a 3D item using Anya and/or Ian

Last but not least, the CANDY CANE CROWN will go to the best use of Holiday sweets on a card or project-whether it's cookies, candy, cupcakes, gingerbread houses, know the drill. Think your fave holiday treat...and INDULGE US!

Now on to my creations for tonight's hop. First, I needed something to hold a gift card for my hubby from our daughter so I thought I'd try using a nugget tin :)

The tin is layered inside with the gingham paper from Merry, Merry. I used Santa Ian and colored him with my copics, his "fur" around his hat and suit is made using liquid applique (love this stuff!). He was cut out and glue dotted to the tin. I used a 1'' grosgrain ribbon from Close to My Heart and the bow was made using my bow-easy. I also added some tiny adhesive back pearls to a couple of the corners. The tag was made using the Very Merry Tags Cartridge on my Cricut, Imaginsince Polar Expressions paper and blinged up.

For my second project I made a card once again using Santa Ian. All the materials used to make this card is from Close to My Heart and is just gorgeous in person. (sorry about the quality of the picture, it's was pretty dark here when I took it).

Hope you like it. Now it's time to go back to the Club Anya blog and see who's next.
