Lots of things to share!!!
The Bad Girls December Kit is now revealed!!
Grannie's Attic: so vintage and shabby chic-lots of goodies and amazing papers!
This kit was a challenge for me to create with, I'm not used to using paper lines like this but I have to admit-the challenge was fun and I love the layouts I created! And the add-ons are to die for!!!

The challenge for December was to create a layout about what brings you peace...
I had Jack photograph my hands shaped as a heart and then added all of the things that bring me peace...
These are photos of my Dad as a little guy, wearing a sailor suit my Grandmother loved! He looks so adorable! I loved working with these older vintage photos!!!

Another LO using photos of my Dad--he was sooo cute! Grandma was great about taking lots of photos of him when he was growing up--thanks Grandma!!! I cut out some of the images from the paper, used an old receipt from the kit and love the crepe paper by Jenni Bowlin-she is genius!

This is a photo of my Grandfather-he was always working with his hands. Back then, everyone knew how to make their own repairs, wiring, plumbing, building...amazing times!

This ornament was so easy to create-I love the vintage look of it!! And as it turns out-my Mom snagged it for her own tree! LOL!! All you need to do is accordian fold a 3in x 12 in piece of paper-two of them! Using heavy duty tape to attach and add a circle chipboard piece for the back to make it more sturdy. Use a cupcake paper cup for the center and cut out the little vintage girl for the center. Add glue around the outside and in the creases-then sprinkle with glitter! Add some velvet ribbon to the top to hang it with--you're done!
And as promised-a cute little book to use as a gift this year! I used a Melissa Francis flower mini book for this project! Cover the front with patterned paper and tie some ribbon around it. Then attach a tag with a small saftey pin. Ink the edges too if you like!

Make everyother page a pocket page-take out all of the pages from the book-cut 5 of them about 1/3 off the top. Replace them in the book, everyother page and adhere around just the edges so you have a pocket. Stamp fun swirls or snowflakes onto the pages.

I used my Cricut machine to cut out a bunch of different tags, I stamped on them and embellished with ribbon, brads, etc! Fun to make-the kids can help with this too!
Then give it as a hostess gift of a friend so they can use them as To/From for their gifts. And the book can be used for something else later after the tags are gone!

Thas all for today! I'll be back tomorrow!!!!
