True Love Was Born in a Stable

Seems like everyone is in the Christmas Spirit and I am still in the mood for Thanksgiving.  I googled images for Christmas mantels and came across this phrase..."True Love was born in a stable".  I love it!  I set off for a shopping trip early this morning with the intentions of not spending very much money and was pleasentaly surprised at what all I found on sale at Michaels.  I had a hard time finding an item for my 50% off coupon.

I purchased the burlap, silver ribbon, chalkboard pick,and deer from Michaels.  I was surprised the deer was less than $10 on sale!

On to the scrapbooking part of this project...

I used school/chalkboard paper from Hobby Lobby (already had it on hand) and Silhouette white premium vinyl to cut the phrase with my Silhouette Cameo.  I was going to cut out "Merry Christmas" and put that on the chalkboard pick, but thought it would be cool for the kids to use it to count down to Christmas using chalk every day to change the number of days.

I wanted this to be pretty and glam, yet also have a bit of natural too.  It is getting cold here this weekend...hopefully it continues to put me in the Christmas spirit.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Fall Initial

"S'' is our last initial.  

I am loving digital paper.  My daughter woke me up early this morning, 6am!  What else to do other than craft.

I love these fall colors in this set.  Can't wait to find a place to hang it.

This paper was purchased on etsy from Little Panda Designs.

The shapes were purchased from the Silhouette Online Store. 

Off to watch football!  Have a great weekend!

Get in the spirit!

Playing with digital paper from etsy tonight using Silhouette Studio software.  This digital paper is for Chicago Bears, but  I am using it for the Auburn Tigers, my alma mater, War Eagle!

I love the chevron paper, how cute is it?

The picture is from The Birmingham News, found on Bing.  I am afraid, I lost all my football pictures, totally my fault :-(

This would be so cute framed, or even printed out and mod podged on to a piece of wood.  However, I am low on ink and afraid I can not print this successfully tonight.  Shopping trip tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting my blog!!!  Happy weekend, and War Eagle to you Auburn fans!!!

Hello!  I created this snowman from scratch tonight using the Silhouette Studio software.  I did not create the pattern paper, but I did add the big polka dots to the background paper.  I love creating my own images!  Once I was done creating the snowman, scarf and hat, I grouped the images and did an offset (which you see in gray).

I plan to use the snowman on the oval background for Christmas tags.  I will probably change the colors a bit to make it match my Christmas packages, but I thought these colors were cute since it is fall right now.
