My trip to Japan totally messed up my schedule! I'm so behind! I mailed out a few packages and some of my Christmas cards today but still have half of the others that I need to mail out :( Sigh! Oh well, this year's card had to be done digitally. Maybe this summer I can get a head start on next year's Christmas cards (^o^)

Please be safe out there if you're traveling! From my family to yours!!! Mele Kalikimaka!

Stocking Stuffers and Gift Bags

Thought I'd post some stuff I made for my sister and her friends. These are pocket calendars that I got from Target.

and these are gift bags made with last year's SU! DSP. Super easy to make and such a lifesaver! I had no gift bags and did not have time to go out in all the craziness.

Hi Everyone!

Just letting you know there will be no new post for the next two weeks as I will be leaving on vacation back to my childhood home in Japan. I know I don't say much on this blog regarding my personal life (it's not that interesting). But for those that don't know, I grew up in Japan (I was a military brat and now a military spouse) and miss it everyday! I'm thrilled to be going back and will visit my old home and school again (I say again since I was just there last spring but the trip was cut short) and of course the shopping, Toyko and Disney. LOL!

Hopefully my creative juices will be flowin' when I get back and I can get back into the groove of creating!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Christmas 08 Stamp Camp Kit

Well it's finally! Finally finished the SC kits. It took me awhile because the first one I did was catered for Halloween, Bday cards and Christmas items. But of course with my luck the Simply Scrappin' I Wish set was on backorder. Therefore the SC kits were not completed and by the time I received them Halloween was done and over (*o*). So I decided to make this kit strictly Christmas. This kit contains two cards, three favors and four gift tags. Without further ado, here's a preview:

Fallin' for you

Initially this card was suppose to be a We've Moved/Our New House type of card however the stamps that I had didn't work well with it. I just couldn't make it work. So I decided to add the Hedgehog stamp from Penny Black. I just love this stamp and this is probably the second time I've used it since owning it. I'm not lovin' the card but it'll do for now... TFL! (excuse the poor lighting in the second photo...I'm too lazy to fix it...)
