Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

 

Wow this has been a Christmas to remember! and now we are quickly approaching 2014. I can remember back in the day, our public school teacher asking what age we would be in the year 2000, and thinking that that was so far in the future it boggled our minds. Well here we are on the eve of 2014 and wow has the world changed since back then.

 

And for me the scrapbooking world has also change immensely, with all of our electronic personal cutters, digital scrapbooking and the wide variety of companies, papers, embellishments, stamps and so on…..

I have been scrapbooking since 2006 and I can not remember there being so much to choose from, the companies have really stepped it up and almost made scrapbooking an art form.

 

As most of you know, I am a huge Silhouette Cameo lover, and every year at Christmas I try to do some fun things for the supper table as well as personal gifts. Last year I made this adorable little piece of pie for everyone, it was on their plate with a Lindor chocolate in it and their name tag.

This year I made everyone a little chocolate goody bag, filled with yummy chocolates to eat before the New Year when everyone attempts to lose weight, it never happens! lol

And for my sister I made her an over sized card from Silhouette, using the Cameo. It is a horse carousel and I added a couple of pictures of her and her horse. What a great gift, not only a card but a keepsake as well.

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?? every sheet of paper is stunning, I’m not sure if we should scrap with it or just frame it and call it art!

I made a paper box, a Silhouette Cameo image, and used the Couture line. I added some bling, a fabric floral, some tulle and stick pins just to give it that nostalgic feel. Didn’t every hat back in that era have tulle? pins? possibly feathers….. hmmmmm just gave myself another idea!!!
