Another gift...& Blog Candy!!!

 


I made this set of monogrammed note cards for a friend who just received her doctorate degree. I made 10 of them with envelopes and put them in a clear stationery box. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the large chocolate chip piece of cardstock, which made them super easy to make!

I hope all of you are having a great start to the NEW year :-)

I would love to hear what NEW toys you got over the holiday. So share them with me and I will offer up some blog candy this Friday! Not sure yet what it will be, but I promise it will be good! Here are a few of my favorite new toys -

2. Happy Heart Day stamp set by Stampin' Up! (www.stampinup.com) (You are welcome to purchase this stamp set through me. It is SUPER cute! Make sure you check out the Valentines Day bundle over on the main website :-)
3. Copic Markers from Eclectic Paperie (www.eclecticpaperie.com)

Have a great day!!!

My favorite one thing is the Copic marker set that my DH got me. I don't know which set it is but it has all the light colors in it. Also, I love the little things I got during the 12 Day of Christmas DH did for me! :o)

This card is fabulous! Thanks for sharing :)

My fave new toy is my set of Prismacolor pencils. I keep oohing and aahing over my coloring options!

I'm still waiting on my new toys, I ordered the new CC designs sets, and a set from Gina K. So I'm sure I'll be stuck to my craft table for a while.

With the money I got, I already bought some color pencils with high pigment. Friday I'm going to a stampshop to spend the rest of the money. I'm looking forward to it!

You are so lucky to get Copics... I really want to give them a try. My newest craft item would be my Spellbinders/Nestabilities scalloped circles. I love them.

I got a cartidge for my Cricut. I am happy that I got it, because my New Year's Resolution is to donate $1000 to the Crohn's and Colits Foundation and since I'm a SAHM, I will not be spending any money on craft supplies this year in order to raise enough money to donate. Your giveaway sounds fabulous!!
Thanks!

I got a Sizzix Big Kick and I love it! The best of all worlds, embossing and cutting....it does it all! :) The cuttlebug is awesome, my friend's mom has one and she let us play with it from Thanksgiving to Christmas!!!! I make impressions of every embossing folder she had! It was great!

My favorite was a gift certificate to Michaels. $100.00 WOWEE! Haven't spent it yet. Will probably go this week because I have a 50% off coupon (and you know how those burn a hole in your pocket). Not sure what big ticket item I'm going to get.

I got a Cuttlekids for my boys! Does that count? Now I can craft with them alongside me - and with their own tool! leeannafatovic@bellsouth.net

One of my favorite toys my DH got me for Christmas is my ScorPal. This little thing is so cool. He also stuffed my stocking with some more embossing folders for my Cricut. You can never have enough! :)

I got a couple of scrapbook presents that I love equally well. My daughter gave me a cartridge for my Cricut, and my friend gave me a gift certificate to my LSS:)

hmmm I loved Everything I got But Ive got to say the Boys got me a few stickles and stuff with their own money so that was the Best !! But i love all my new punches and stamps DH got me!!!

Mandiannie said...

I haven't had the pleasure of using a cuttlbug though i sure like the look of it. I use the Fiskars texture plates, but I'm finding it very time consuming.

Mara G said...

Well I was suppose to get the ATG gun and tape from my parents but my mom put off ordering it until it was to late. So I didn't get it.
So that was suppose to be my new toy.

Lori Mueller said...

I got a new cuttlebug and the Bind-it-All as new toys! Haven't had a chance to use the Bind-it-All, but love the cuttlebug. I've been feverishly buying embossing folders! TFS your monogramed card idea....I need to be making some for gifts.

Allison said...

My fav new toy is my sewing machine!
