Altered Box Project

I made this cute little altered box project as Secret Santa for my online group of scrappin' friends (PAWS). I didn't post it previously as I wanted her to open it on Christmas not sure of who her Secret Santa was. I used Basic Grey papers, bling and stickles. I got the knob at Target and got my husband to cut it down to the proper length.

I'm glad to finally have internet access again!


Two cards I taught at our scrapbook club's holiday party this past weekend. I remember seeing these cards a while ago. One is an origami fold card and the other . . .? I don't know the proper name but I did turn it into a gift card. If you know the design name, lmk!

Paper by Chatterbox. I love this line. One of their old collectionsHowever, I think Chatterbox closed its doors this past year? Did you know that Ross' has scrapbooking supplies every so often? That's where I got a whole paper pak of this line . . for a steal!

**Update: this card above is called the "Step Card". Thank you, Gail, for letting me know!!!

Here is the other card. Paper by CTMH.

Lastly, I hope 2010 brings you good health, much wealth ;o) and lots of happiness! Enjoy the year, it goes so darn fast!!! Thank you for visiting LPS!
See you next year!

Kinda Back Again!

Sorry, folks - I have been dealing with "technology issues". Love technology when it works! Both my kids laptops crashed this month and my computer is going down. I only have internet intermittently, when one of the computers decides to communicate.

I had exciting news -- I am a Design Team Member at beginning in January! I'm so excited!

Teacher Post-it Note Holder

Even though my holiday season cut so short, I still created quick gifts. Here is one of 3 different styles I created for teacher gifts this year. Stamp is by Stampendous (I think). Found these adorable apple shaped post-it note pads at Fisher and knew exactly what we wanted to do. I thought I took pictures of the other ones too, but apparently not. These pads had watermark designs alread on them.

December's Tea card for two

I've used a different color scheme then I have ever used before. Tea punch and border I have had for a while

Back again!

Well, I'm back. I think Karen is still recuperating from the busy holidays. I procrastinated real bad this year. Only gave myself 3 weeks to do the shopping, wrapping, mailing, etc. In between there were Christmas performances, family get togethers, work, sickness in the family, health issues, and everything else. Next year, I plan to be ready!

Do you find yourself procrastinating one year, doing really well the next year (because you remembered what you did the previous year), then procrastinating the next (because you felt so proud of yourself the previous year)? It is a vicious cycle. Well this coming year is going to be my good year! Watch and see!!

So back to the crafts. Here are some of the gifts I created during the past couple of weeks. My classes start again at A Place in Time, Kailua in January. We have another blog look and look forward to 2010 . . . . .

Thank you for visiting!
