Back From the Past…

Christmas Trevor is patiently awaiting the moment he can tear into these presents!  He’s so cute with his antler headband and candy cane shirt!  I colored him with Copic Sketch Markers…check my post from yesterday for the link to Dick Blick’s sale and a great price on Copics!  Then in the sidebar on the right… Copic refills HALF PRICE!!!  I already ordered what I needed… yea!  Hair E 13, 15, 18, 19 … Skin E000, 00, 01 … Shirt B000, 00, 02, 05 …Pants and shoes E40’s …

I started out with the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge blog open on my computer….It was the inspiration behind this card…might not look exactly like it… but that’s where I started!  Sketch SSS136.  Thanks Korin for the great inspiration!

I’m linking to Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog – the them is “tis the season”.

I had to try out my new EK Success ornament border punch… love it!  I linked to it on Amazon because that was the only place I found it in stock online.   Super cute Imaginisce chipboard sticker and die cut tree… links below.  Echo Park 6×6 Season’s Greetings pad,  in stock at ATS.

on the inside I used some more of the Season’s Greetings pad and a brand NEW Printworks sentiment from their Christmas release.. love it!  I linked to it below also.  Since we’re all thinking about PRESENTS!  (and buying our own, hehe)  I linked up some of the tools and things I use all the time!  I LOVE the Color Bee Scissors!!!!  I have a zillion pairs but for fussy cutting…these are the best!!!!  My friend Alice clued me in to them and I became a believer immediately!   They are the only ones I use for cutting out images!  They last too…well,  don’t get glue on them… use one of those other pairs you thought would be good to cut out that stuff w/glue on it! lol   I use the Tim Holtz Tonic scissors for cutting rubber stamps….they’re grrrrreat!

I heard gals rave about Craft mats for a couple years before I finally purchased my first one a few years ago…now I have two! hehe   Can’t create without it!   Same with the ATG gun… oh my… definitely the most $$$ saving thing I own!!!   I am not kidding…. the best thing!  I know… it’s big… BUT… mine sits on the floor,  right where I can put my arm/hand down and grab it…gotta have it!  Then the Stamp a ma jig… yep… I use it every time I make a card or anything that needs lined up… another BEST thing!  The Tonic 12×12 Trimmer….cuts straight… yep, it does and the Martha Stewart scoreboard….true love!  Course you know I have videos under my tutorial tab for making envelopes with it… AWESOME!  All this “stuff” makes me happy!  If you need more ideas for what to buy yourself… stamps and dies…can’t go wrong! hohoho!

That sentiment pretty much says it all!  Check out the new Printworks website… HERE … The Limited Edition Snowman is available now.

May your Season be full of stamping… your halls decked with paper scraps and die cut waste…creations all over the place!!!  Thanks for stopping by!
