Peachy Keen Guest Design Post #4

It's been great fun spending this
busy, busy time with you all.

Thank you for your kind words
and thanks for visiting my blog!

I have two final projects to share with you all.
If you are like me, you still have some things to
make and give AFTER Christmas.  I mean
seriously one month just isn't enough time to
get it all done.  My projects today are things you
can easily make and give going into the new
year.  Who doesn't like Hot Cocoa??

This image comes from PK-148 Snow Gifts and
it's layers on two cuts from my Silhouette.

Snowman close up!!!!  CUTE!!!!

And - chocolate!

I've used this gift and shared with my husband
who delivers Meals on Wheels.  They all loved it!

Nice little gift, right?

Now my last project --

With January right around the corner, how
about a melting snowman!

Fun card and a favorite of mine.

Again, used another PKS snowman face, three circles
and BAM - a melting snowman!  I cut my circles on
my Cameo, but you can do the same with your cricut 
or even punches.   I sized them at:

Don't laugh, but for the arms, I searched my images and 
used the FEET from a bird for my snowman's
arms.  I did use foam tape between each circle
to give more dimension.

Here's the inside of the card.

Thank you, thank you!  It's been
so much fun!  Make sure you get your
craft on soon.  Nothing is more relaxing
that cutting up paper, coloring, and using some glue.

Happy New Year!

The fun continues!

Here's another PK project.

Who doesn't like tags??

Fun, fun and so quick and easy to make
but it shows the gift recipient that you took
just a little extra time!

You can make tags from your Silhouette, Cricut
or even using corner punches.

By adding your PKS colored images, your
tag looks like a professional.

PKS images are from:
PK-322 Christmas Tag Minis
PK-306A Snow Happy Mini

Sentiment from PK-322

Don't have patterned paper?  No problem.
Use the sentiments from PK-322
and randomly stamp on your paper
in two different colors.  Perfect!

Thanks for stopping by!

Peachy Keen Guest Designer Post #2

Ready for another FUN Peachy
Keen project????
This is the first time I've made the sour cream
containers.  I followed a link from
Split Coast Stampers and here it is:

Okay, I could make these ALL DAY!
They are filled with Hershey Kisses but almost
any treat will work.

The images are stamped from
PK - 332 Christmas Tag Minis
and colored with my Copic Markers.

I also use Bic markers and they work fine too!

Another cute project topped off
with PKS!!

Okay - let's get crafting!
Christmas is just around the corner.

Last minute Christmas ideas!

I made a quick video for those
who may be need a last minute Christmas 
gift idea for a co-worker, teacher, mail person, etc.

I used my Cameo but I know some
of you crafty people out there could
design the same thing in the Cricut
craft room or with your Gypsy.

Happy Crafting!

Thanks for stopping by!

Come back Tuesday when I have another
project as a Peachy Keen Guest Designer!

Peachy Keen Guest Design Post #1

I'm so excited to be a Peachy Keen Guest
Designer this month!  I have been in 
love with PKS for a long time and last
December I entered one of my favorite PK 
projects for consideration and I won the
Top Peach award.

Here was my entry -

I manage a large staff for a medical group and it's
always a challenge to give them something for Christmas.
These microwave pop corn packets were a hit!
I wrapped them with white paper, stamped on a PK
Snowman Face and topped them off with a set of gloves
tied on to look like a hat.  The staff loved them.

So that is how I got here, but now let's see what I've
come up with for this December.

How about taking a Hershey bar and turning it into
a great treat for any teacher, co-worker, postman, bank teller, 
paper boy, sanitation driver, etc.

I wrapped all three bars with a paper sized at
5.5 x 5.5.  Use patterned paper and add a simple
tag or create your own snowman like I did on the
bar below.  The hat was made with scraps of paper
and I topped it off with a snowflake sticker and
a sprig of white foliage.  Of course what makes
this project is the PKS snowman face!
I used the Winter Face Assortment.

The next couple were made by using a circle and
a scalloped circle cut with my cameo but if you have
punches, you can do the same thing.  I got to color
these fun seasonal images with my Copic markers.
I love this simple and quick project.

The sentiments and the stamped snowman
come from the same set -
PK-322 Christmas Tag Minis - OH so cute!

The little snowman looking up is
PK-306A Snow Happy Mini

I hope you enjoyed these projects for today!

Thank you for stopping by!  Remember to enjoy this holiday
season by making memories!!!

Happy Crafting!

Black Friday Fun!

Hubby and I were traveling on Black Friday.
We were driving to Minnesota to see our new
granddaughter so I didn't participate in any
Black Friday sales in the store, but I just
had to log on to My Creative Time website
to see what her Black Friday special was and I was
not disappointed.  I have grown to love Emma's
dies as I can utilize so many more scraps and I 
don't always have to get one of my machines going.
I use a Cuttlebug to cut out her dies and they work
beautifully.  Well my order came in
yesterday and I just had to make something
immediately.  If you are like me the days are getting
shorter and Christmas and other events seem just around
the corner.  With my new goodies I made this cute little
"list note" and attached a magnet
on the back to hang on the refrigerator.

Every item pictured here was in 
Emma's Black Friday special.
The little note in the right hand corner is
attached with a mini clothes pin but I
went one step further and ran it 
through the laminator so I can
change the "_______ days until Christmas"
with a dry erase marker!

I'm a list girl, but I like things to look
cute!  I hope you enjoy my little checklist.

Happy crafting!
