Merry Christmas

We woke up with snow this morning, but soon it started raining. We had breakfast together, and played some games with the girls. I also scrapped a little. I made two Christmas boxes and a card. This Christmas card is for my mom and dad. I was inspired by this card that I created a few weeks ago.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (kraft), Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) Patterned paper: October Afternoon Very Merry Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Labels, Signature Christmas, Background Basics: Text Style II) Ink: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Vintage Dye Duo), Versafine Vintage Sepia Tools: Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop edge punch, Cuttlebug Cut 'n Emboss Ice Crystal, sewing machine Button: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Holiday Mix) Twine: Papertrey Ink Other: foamtape, Ranger Stickles Frosted Lace

I also made a little gift box for my parents. I used Papertrey Ink's My Timeless Template Ready, Set, Wrap.

We've been invited by Peter and Li to have dinner at their place today. I made them a gift box filled with Christmas chocolates. I was inspired by Ted's Happily Ever Challenged #1. His challenge is to create a box. I used the In a Pinch template by Lauren Meader. Her templates are available in PDF and various cutting files. I purchased the GSD file, so I can cut the template using my QuicKutz Silhouette.

Last Saturday we received a box with Christmas gifts. Today we could finally open the gifts and the girls and I were thrilled. Our sweet Santa surprised the girls with lovely American Girl craft supplies and I received Martha Stewarts' Lace Heart edge punch. Thank you so much, Santa! Love ya!



Wishing you a wonderful and magical Christmas Day.
