This week’s challenge at H2H is on the theme of time. You can see the challenge here. I thought I would share this clock that I made for Dolly for her room. She wanted a clock fit for a princess and this one certainly is. It cost me about $4.00 to make.CIMG2941

Creative Claire

Claire is my oldest niece and she is very special to me. She moved with her family to Medicine Hat and I miss her so much.

Being the oldest of four, she rarely has time to herself, and was super excited that she was going to be able to come and stay with us all by herself…no sisters or brothers.

She loves to craft and is so very creative. We wanted to make something special for her new room. This is the first time, since she was less than two, that she would have her own bedroom. when they lived in Saskatoon, she shared a room with both of her sisters! I am very proud of what she came up with and I think it will look super in her bedroom!

For A Special Family

My brother and his family have always lived very near to us. When we moved to Conquest three years ago, we were 45 minutes away and that is the farthest we have ever been. Needless to say, the kids are all very close.

Well, this past summer, my brother, his wife and their four kids moved away…far away…like a whole different province away. We miss them so much.

I saw the challenge for this week at Heart2Heart and it was to create something for someone you are thankful for. We are thankful for all the years we had living close to them and now we are thankful for the times we are able to get together with them.

This is what I came up with:

Metal Mania

This week’s challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to incorporate something metal into your project. You can see the challenge here.

I must confess that I didn’t actually do this challenge. my eight year-old son, Will J did it. i was so proud of the job he did, that I thought I would share it with my friends on my blog.

Here is what he made:

It is a metal CD tin that he made a treat holder out of!

Sweet Little Twins

My cousin just had the most beautiful little twin girls. I wanted to make them something special that they could treasure forever. The problem is, with working full-time, being a mom to three kids and a wife to the fourth, doing Scentsy parties and CTMH classes and Christmas trade shows, I do not have time to sit and make albums like I usually do for new babies in the family.

I decided I would make them DVD mini albums. this idea is totally inspired by an album I received in a swap last year. i don’t know who made it, but she is very talented.

Here is my take:

I didn’t have time to do a page layout this week, but I did make several cards. Cards are easier for me because I can do them on my down time at work. I can’t very well pack all of the supplies I need to do pages, but I can take along stuff for card making. I decided to make cards with the Pair-A-Phrase stamp set and boy, did I make a lot of cards.

In fact, I have an extra set of 10 cards to give away. If you would like a chance to win them, all you need to do is become a follower of this blog and like my facebook page.

Here are the cards:

Witchy Finger Shortbread

I work in a bakery, so we decided to make almond shortbread to hand out to the trick-or-treaters. It is not just any almond shortbread, though…we made WITCH FINGERS!!! They were a hit. I think we might have to make them every year!
IMG_0037[1]You may recognize the little owl topper as a stamp from the Pair-A-Phrase stamp set. I would have used something a little spookier, but we decided on packaging that day and this was the only set I had with me!

H2H Autumn Terracotta, Juniper and Bamboo

This week at Heart 2 Heart, they have decided on a color challenge. the colors are Autumn Terracotta, Juniper and Bamboo. I love color challenges…they are my favorite. If you would like to play along, you can see the challenge here.
This is what I came up with:
I have always loved this stamp set and I thought I would pair it with a real “present”. The gift is actually a Hershey’s Nugget attached to the inside of the card. I punched the front of the card so the gift would pop through. I have a friend who has not been well for awhile and I thought I would send her this card to cheer her up.
Do you know there is only one thing better than receiving a handmade card from a friend? Yes. Receiving a handmade card from a friend that also contains chocolate!

Mojo Monday 213

Mojo Monday has challenged us to use non-trditional size cards for this week. One of the sketches they had was for a circle card. I have done very few circle cards, so I thought I would try that challeneg. I have never done a clear card before, so I challenged myself to do that as well. I am happy with the results.

…and here is what I created.

Great Canadian Swappers

I am part of a swap group called the Great Canadian Swappers. Every two months, we create cards for each other using guidelines created by one person in the group. This is the first card I created for the December group. It is a simple Thank-you card using Tara’s guidelines.

Tara's guidelines:
- 4x4
- Orange, brown & pink theme
- 2 cardstocks in 2 of the above colors
- 1 b&t in the remaining color (ie. if you use brown & orange cardstock, then please use pink b&t)
- flowers, either stamped, paper or homemade
- some sort of 2 step stamping
