Happy {New} Year

Just wanted to say Happy New Year! Sorry for the neglected blog. We are currently enjoying our newest addition - Baby Brother. :) Will get back into the swing of things come 2012! I have big plans for instagram pictures from 2011. Just got to get stuff printed. Does anyone else have this challenge? I can't ever get pictures printed to go into my projects. Wish me luck with this in 2012 :)


Christmas Card 2011

I decided to make my own cards this year. It actually wasn't too bad as I've realized how easy PSE has become for me! Hooray. I never thought I would feel that way.

Anyways, I had big plans to make a front and back side for my cards, but I wanted to simplify. It just had to happen this year with baby due on the 23rd. I also had big plans for a cute letter too, but SIMPLIFY! So I just went with the front. However, since I created the back of the card, I figured I would share it with you, my crafty friends.

I got the Joy paper pack from Photo Card Boutique. I was also feeling inspired by their templates - Collins and Taylor

I also got my cards printed at Persnickety Prints on Pearl paper. They turned out great! Loved them.

Rhonna Designs: Chevron Love

I bought this kit (Chevron Tool Kit) from Rhonna Designs. I decided to try it out making my own Christmas tags. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I did also use some stuff from  the Christmas Art Brush kit, Christmas Junque Borders, Christmas Junque brush kit, House of 3 - Christmas Borders and Banners. The tag templates came from That Girl Designs.

I thought they turned out pretty cute. I printed them on ink jet sticker paper so I could just stick them to packages rather than trying to try them to the packages.
