A thrifty, gifty Christmas??

What’s everyone doing this Christmas for handmade goods??? Let’s share our ideas!

Our youngest, Emma, is heading to a local nursing home to give out shoeboxes filled with toiletries and such to the residents.

Emma and I are making (altering) snowflake ornaments I got on clearance from Joann’s to hand out as well.

I stamped the ornaments with the swirl from Setting the Stage, and one of the flower parts from It’s Elemental.  I then went over the image with my Quickie Glue pen and added a couple of different glitter colors to jazz it up.

I wanted to keep it simple enough that Emma could easily do it with me, and it worked!  We made enough for each of the kids in her class, so they all have something to take to the nursing home and hang on the tree for the residents.  I hope it will brighten their holiday!

How'd They Do That?

Apparently, Isabelle is a HIT!  There are lots of Paper Doll sets and Paper Doll Bundles shipping out today, so I wanted to make sure all of you knew what to do with the kit when you got it!

Joanne did a FABULOUS tutorial on how to make a Paper Doll set using the contents of the Bundle kit, so I wanted to make sure you all knew about it and checked it out!  It’s right HERE!

We have a slew of packing to do and will be in Tampa this weekend at the Scrapbook Expo show for those of you who are local, I hope you’ll stop by!

Let's Hop Around the Block Tonight!

Welcome to our second MFT Release Blog Hop!!!  We were so excited and happy with the response to the hop last month, that we are making them an MFTradition!

I am first in the Hop Around the Block, then next you’ll want to visit Maren who will lead you on down the line….  It’s been such a pleasure having some new faces to work with this release, aren’t they fabulous???  Seriously!

Today I am previewing Isabelle Paper Dolls, (and another total MFTeaser which won’t be released until Feb….more on that later) and wanted to show a little Paper Doll collection I will be teaching as a class next March.  The pic above is one of the outside tin covered in patterned paper, blinged out with some crystals to spell Emma’s name.  Can you guess who it’s for??

This pic is a close up of the inside of the tin, complete with little sparkly outfits!  I am SO TOTALLY and COMPLETELY in love with her!!!!!!!!  I mean really….is there a more perfect gift for a little girl than a Paper Doll set?????  That you can make yourself???

We will be offering a Paper Doll Kit during the release that contains all you need to make at least two sets of Paper Dolls, I will post deets on that later….

Here is a close up of Isabelle in her Ballerina costume, isn’t she precious??  Sigh, I have a very serious crush on her right now, can you tell????

I hope you’ll join us for the release tonight at 9pm EST, and the sets will go live at 10pm EST!  In the meantime, you can soak your eyes on some MFTeasers HERE!
