Christmas Scrapbook Page 1999

Here's a page that I just made starring my oldest daughter Hayley.  She was 15 month old and back then we didn't have digital cameras so we would have to take a whole roll of film just to make sure that we got at least 1 good picture for her Christmas card.  Boy have times changed.  She was so cute though and I can't believe that she's 12 now.  I Love hopping around with my scrapbooking and not really going in order.  I think that it's more fun that way.

Some Holiday items

When visiting with my friend Margaret last week, I noticed that she was making some teacher's gifts.  It was an idea that I had seen a couple of years ago but totally forgot about until I saw them sitting on her table.  They are adorable post it note holders.  It's really nice to have by your phone.  I put an RSVP pen with coordinating holiday designer paper inside.  These are just black metal  frames that I found at my local AC Moore store for about $1.49 on sale

Here's a couple of really easy gift tags that I also made to attach to the neck of a wine bottle.  They're made with cherry cobbler cardstock and I used the slit punch to make the clasp.  I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo but I embossed the words Merry and Brite in silver on the front.  I used fancy gold yarn that I picked up in the knitting dept. of Walmart to make the tie.

At last but not least,  I used one of my fall stamp sets on this Christmas card.  It's the very popular French Foliage.  I saw this on Dawn Olchefske's blog.  I thought that it was such a cute idea.  I used Old Olive for the card base and wreath and Bravo burgandy was used to stamp the splashes and the ribbon. 
Hope you got some quick and easy ideas for some last minute details.

Stamp Club

Hi All,

I talked to some of you already about starting a stamp club in January.  It's when a group of 6 people agree to purchase $25 worth of Stampin Up products by the 15th of each month and everyone will take a turn being the hostess for that month and get all of the hostess benefits (choice of a level 1 hostess set and $15 of free products).  The commitment is for 6 months so that everyone has a turn being the hostess.  We have 3 girls wanting to be part of it already and are looking for 3 more.  I would just need an email from you by the 15th of each month letting me know what your order is and you can either mail me a check, pay by credit card.  Please let me know if you're interested.
