I love this stamp by Joy's life. You just can't find clever birthday card sayings - so I was thrilled to find this in my set. I picked up the cute birds from Eyelet Outlet. I used my stash on this card too.

Such a sweet little piggy wants to give you lots of love. I used Joy's Life stamps here for the cute saying. The pig is from the Cricut County Fair cartridge and the cute eyelets are from Eyelet Outlet. All of these items came out of my stash. This year I'm trying really hard NOT to buy so much, and use what I already have.

When the Place in Time Graphic 45 paper came out I rushed to my nearest local scrapbook store (which is 20 minutes away) to purchase some. I snagged two of each month because I know once they discontinue this line I'll be heartbroken. I came straight home and worked on January's layout. It's a fantastic line!

I made this card at a local scrapbook store called The Paper Vine. It's a really cute store in Mesa, Az. It carries all of the great lines like Graphic 45 (my fav). I visited the open house and stocked up on my Graphic 45 Place in Time 12 x 12 paper...as if I need anymore paper! This was a make and take. I love the cute wooden embellishments that they sell there. If you're ever in Arizona, I recommend that you stop by this cute scrapbooking store. The owner is really nice.

Lori Whitlock is one of my favorite cut file designers on the Silhouette online store. I also used her poinsettia file for the flower. The clear acetate is recycled from a Cricut cartridge. I always keep the plastic that it comes in for this very purpose. Now....what should I put in there?

One of my friends asked me to make her a Redneck Wine Glass for a friend. She was so thrilled with how I decorated it. I always get a kick out of how much my friends love my work. Sometimes what seems so easy to me, really isn't easy after all. This gift would be perfect for Christmas too!

Lori Whitlock always has such fantastic designs. At first I didn't think I was going to buy this file, but then I decided to give a try. What a great file - it was easy to cut out. I think I made 15 total cards with this file. They'll go in my gift stash for Christmas presents. Yes, I start making my Christmas presents this far in advance.

When I got may stash of Stampin Up sale items I just had to use them! The folded ribbon was so pretty I bougth 8 rolls of it! The embellishments are from Tim Holtz line and the stamps are from stampin up. The cartridge is Suburbia - which is one of my favorite carts.
