Good afternoon everyone, I can't believe that I do not have a snowflake embossing template. I have to go buy one this afternoon so I can work on my cards.
What are you dear friends doing?

I did a soccer page yest. My son was not even walking yet(7 1/2 months) and DH had him kicking a soccer ball as DH held his hands and "walked" him. I took a Creative Memories hexagon punch and cut out a bunch of black and white hexagons. I cut out a 6 inch circle from cardstock, and arranged the blk n wh hexagons inside the circle, filling it completely, then replaced some hexs with cutouts of Juanies face. Then I trimmed it all circular again, so it looks like a soccer ball, althought flat and one-dimensional. TOO CUTE!! I will post in my gallery soon. The only thing is I dont have a title yet, I am going to a crop Sat and will cricut cut something there.

I just got back from getting a few things.
I got the Tim holtz snowflake embossing folder. I still can't believe I did not have a snowflake. I did have to get another bottle of baby blue stickles that I am using for my card. I had to get some baby blue mini brads for them too. I also picked up a pack of the Fiskars 12 embossing plates on clearance for $5. I do love those. I also got an Artbin super satchel that was 12x12x3. It was fuschia pink & it was glittery. It was on clearance for $7. because it was missing the handle. I was so excited. I have some of their fuschia boxes that are the same but no glitter. I was thinking I should get one of these for my glitter papers that will not have a home when I move. I am so glad I looked. It is perfect.
I am going to try out my snowflake embossing folder now. (and the others too)

Hey Chris, That page sounds adorable. I can't wait to see it. I love the soccer ball frame idea. I am glad you got it almost done.

I am going to cut my circles & scallop circles for my snowman. I can't believe how great the snowflake folder embosses. I love it.
Anybody doing anything tonight?

I have a three-day weekend for Columbus Day, and hoped to get a lot of work done on my Christmas projects. Well, I knew I wouldn't yesterday because we were away on a day trip, but today I planned to buy supplies and get lots of work done. Well, I did buy the supplies, that went really well actually, but then I spent large swaths of the afternoon and evening working on a no-sew fleece blanket for myself, which is now actually almost done, I just need to knot the fringe on the two short ends.

Hey Bunny, I am glad you were able to buy supplies. lol I am sorry you haven't gotten anything Christmas yet. I don't blame you for making yourself a fleece blanket. I love those things. MY dd & I sometimes make the tied ones for gifts. (sometimes for each other lol. she made me a cute pink heart one a couple yrs ago.)
Last year I made my hubby a sewn one that was Marine fabric that he loves. He gets cold easily.
They are fun to make too as you know.

Glad you liked the title :>) Your soccer page sounds so cute and such a great idea. I'm ready to adopt a soccer kid somewhere just so I can make a LO like that lol My grandsons are into baseball, but they've been on soccer leagues. I'll have to see if my son has any pics of the boys with a ball...as if I don't already have enough pictures to scrap. I'll never catch up as it is, then here I am looking for an excuse for another page :>) ~Judy

Linda—It sounds like you found some good stuff when you went shopping for your embossing folder. Isn't it funny how we can have a ton of stuff...but never what we NEED? Your Christmas cards are going to be so cute. I keep trying to figure out what I want to do for ours. I've looked at so many youtube videos and looking through the gallery that now I'm completely confuzzled. I can't even decide if I want serious or cute. The ones you're making are very tempting... ~Judy

You are so right Judy. lol We have a million sheets of paper but not the right shade. lol
Go ahead & make my snowmen. They are very easy.
just circle & scallops. She had embossed the middle circle with a snowflake but you do not have to do that at all & it will still be so cute. the carrot is simple. The hat was a punch. & some mini brads. She added a scarf & I may add one too but not sure yet.

I have found the exact thing with my paper stash, Linda! I have tons of cardstock, but never the right color. Why? LOL I buy lots of brights, then choose papers to go with photos that are muted colors!! I guess I always assume that I will need the brights, esp with a small child as my main scrap topic...

I love seeing what everyone is working on! I didn't get any scrapping done over the weekend but had today off for Columbus Day so I ordered a bunch of pictures from Snapfish and have been working on journaling so that I can finish a few layouts in progress. I will be eager to see the soccer layout that was mentioned. I scrap a lot of soccer layouts and am always looking for new ideas!

Finished the fleece blanket! Got 9 out of 12 cards done for the Christmas gift baskets! More weekends need to be three-day weekends!
