Housecalls by Scrappin' Madge - December Blog Hop Reveal

Welcome back to day two of the December Blog Hop Reveal… I'm so happy you are here to join us.
This kit is full of all kinds of fun paper, ribbons, stickers, flair, a stamp and washi tape too!  You can go back and see the fun Mini Album I created for yesterday's reveal and still have plenty left over to create today's projects. 
With Christmas fast approaching and gifts to wrap, I thought it appropriate that I share a tag for you today.  I used one of the stickers as my inspiration and layered it with a couple of different scrap pieces of paper and put that on a manilla tag.  Then I layered stickers, a little bling and a bell!  I just love the ribbon that comes with our kits as well.  I used pop-dots to lift the reindeer and the holly from the paper.
Next I couldn't go without a big THANK YOU to our fearless leader and friend, Madge!  I just love her and I have thoroughly enjoyed being on this amazing team and am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a member.  So I thought it would be fun to make a page…
I know this is a winter kit but I had something else in mind this time, so for this layout I used my die-cut machine and created different shapes to layer on the page.  I found a photo from a recent retreat that we were able to meet up at.  (It is there that I was asked to join the team).  I used stickler, a little bling and baker's twine, ribbon, and flowers from my stash. 
-All the little details-
Thank you for joining me and the other Craft Doctors (Design Team Elves - lol) for a wonderful blog hop!  I do hope and wish everyone a very Merry Magical Christmas!  
Keep following me as I have other projects brewing that I'd love to share.
Make sure you leave a comment from today's blog hop for a prize!
Keep on Scrappin'

Happy 34th Birthday to Samantha and Pamela!

Today I reflect back to 34 years ago when I was laying in a hospital after delivery my beautiful twin daughters and thinking "What the heck just happened!" You see we were told we were having an 8 lb. baby boy and were surprised when we haPamela Litka first and she was a girl and thenSamantha Mendoza and not only a girl but a twin! We didn't know we were having twins so Hunka, Hunka Robert Pumphrey passed out in the delivery room. Things were chaotic at best from the surprise delivery, but what a blessed day it was! We had lots of support from many friends and family and they survived their young parents! I am one lucky mother to have such amazing kids. I thank God everyday for trusting me to have you both as well as your sisters… (and of course all those wonderful grandkids you have given me… lol).

Happy Birthday girls and many, many more! Can't wait to celebrate! have a great day!!! Hugs, Mom

Housecalls by Scrappin Madge - December Blog Hop Reveal

Hi everyone!  Janey here to share with you a mini album that I created using this month's kit.  First, here is a look at the kit.
So I decided to create a mini-album with all the funness!
I first cut all the shapes (the bell, present, star, stocking and tree) out of chipboard and then cut shapes with the paper and assembled the album.  I then took the "This and That" page and cut out all the little tags (pages).  This would be perfect for Instagram photos or contact sheet photos.
Once I embellished everything and added a little bling, I added the ribbon and little bell to make it festive.  I grabbed a ring to put everything together!  I'm really excited to see how it turned out! 
I really do hope you leave a comment as there is a prize being awarded to someone who does!  Thanks for hopping by and I look forward to tomorrow so you can see what I'm working on next! 
Keep on Scrappin'

Update - I forgot to add the line up…. PLEASE make sure to check out all the sites for the hop and come back tomorrow!

MemoryWorks December Daily - Day 5

I have never done a December Daily, so this has taken me lots of preparation and research… I know I probably put too much into finding ideas rather than actually getting it done…. Haa, Haa!  Anyhow, the MemoryWorks Team has been busy creating December Daily Albums.  I love all the creativity!  For my album, I was thrilled to do my rendition of Heidi Swapps Files Album.  It is a pre-done album that you can just put pictures in if you want, but we all know that I like to bling it up, add ink and layer, layer, layer!  Here is the products that I am using on my album.
So without further a due… here is the cover and a few pages to show you what I've been up to.  
Front Cover
Inside cover… we all need a calendar to keep us on track and that can be added to.
Day 1 - Trimming the Tree
Day 2 - Decorating the house

Day 3 - First Christmas Party of the Season…Ornament Exchange.  This ornament is chipboard which I cut from my Cricut.
It is hard to tell but the journaling has inking and the tag has inking and glitter!
A few pictures of the snow we had, a sticker and piece of chipboard.
Well, thank you for joining me and return next week and we'll show you more of what we are doing and some more of my December Dailys.  Check the MemoryWorks blog for more inspiration to complete your December Daily!
