I made this layout today using my holiday card that I sent to friends and family. I used Echo Park's Home for the Holidays.
I need to develop all my photos from Christmas so I can scrap them- I may even have enough to make a December daily album. At least I tried to take a picture every day. As usual, no time for the daily recording in an album but maybe I will get something done!
Happy New Year!!!

I used Doodlebug Christmas products to embellish this paper mache calender I bought at Hobby Lobby. I like it because the boxes are a bit bigger so I was able to put toys inside.

This is really so easy to make and a great gift for the campers, travellers, or youngsters on your list. The best part is finding the cutest fabrics to make these pillows with!
I am using Doodlebug Christmas papers and embellishments to make this project. So far, so cute! I need the numbers yet and a final coat of protective spray. Hmmmmmm......it is only Dec. 4th- I still have time right.....

Below you will find partial instructions to make pillows. I forgot to take the last couple of photos but I will post tomorrow to finish this up!
I am making 16x16 pillows with removable cases. I am kind of terrible for just amking things up so I apologize for not having measurements- I just eyeball my sewing work!!!!
I cut one piece of fabric to fit the pillow and have a seam allowance of about 2 inches.
I then cut two pieces of fabric that overlap each other and fit the one large piece in size.
Here they are with a sewn seam.
Next I laid the two half pieces on top of the full piece with the pattern facing inwards. I pinned them together at the edges and sewed around the whole pillow, about a half inch seam.
Once you have sewn around the whole pillow, flip the fabric right side out. Now Sew about 2 inches inwards all around the pillow again. What you will have is a pillow case with a nice edge. I will show pictures tomorrow of this part!
I am also going crazy trying to make this advent calendar for my son. It is Dec. 1st so I have missed the mark on this project but he really does not know the difference so I think I have time yet! I am using Doodlebug's Santa Express. Stay tuned for the finished glitz!

I made another card using the Daily Details page from Bella's line Christmas Cheer. The great thing about these cutouts is that you can make so many cards in a snap. They are also great for pocket scrapping. Below is a recap of the cards I have made so far. I embellished with Bella stickers, twine, stickles, and gems. It is almost the final month before Christmas.....time to think about mailing cards to people far away!!!

Let me tell you- that does not happen often so I took great advantage of that time!!!
I used Bella Blvd's Thanksgiving line to make this layout. I fussy cut the scarecrow from a journal square from an older line.
