Freebies, Give-Aways, Tutorials!!!

I'm back again today with some FUN STUFF! If you are not a member of DigiShop Talk - JOIN NOW because we are giving away a lot of AMAZING gifts this month in the DST Insider and I don't want you to miss out!

It's FREE to join DST, so go HERE to sign up. Once you've signed up (or if you already are a member), download the December issue of the DST Insider (It's FREE too!!!) - you can download it here: December 2008 DST Insider

This issue is all about HYBRID and in it you will find some incredible tutorials, hybrid articles and LOTS of coupons! But the best part of all - you will find all the free gifts we are giving away this month!!!! Look on Pages 47 - 48 for the freebies and then go to the special 12 Days of Christmas forum at DST to enter in the drawings!

Also in this issue, the super-talented Jess Gordon has a FREE Hybrid Photo Box project!!! I LOVE this box and am going to make one for my mom for Christmas - it is just beautiful and Jess really outdid herself on this! Check it out:

This is a GREAT project for all the scrappers out there that are wanting to try hybrid AND for those who are seasoned hybrid scrappers! All of the directions are included - just add photos, print and assemble! Thanks Jess for this adorable project!!! Oh, and make sure to visit Jess at her new store - Sunshine Studio Scraps!
Lastly, I've made these bows before and had a LOT of people ask for a tutorial - well, I did one for this issue. I have LOTS of photos and step-by-step directions - so, if you are one of the people that asked, look on pages 43-45!

Happy Sunday! Only 18 more days until Christmas!!!!

Catching Up!

Obviously I've been VERY behind! Work has been so hectic and busy that I haven't been able to keep up lately :( BUT, I do have a few things to share and with Christmas vacation coming up in two weeks, I hope to get more things accomplished!
For larger photos, you can go to my online gallery and click on the individual thumbnail photos to make them larger.

I've got two mini-albums that I did for My Creative Scrapbook. The first one is the most recent, it's for the December Album Kit.

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" (Album Cover)

It's hard to tell in the photo, but I decided to make a "shaker box" (remember those?) Snow Globe - I put glitter in the shaker box.

(This is a second photo of this page showing the pull out photo behind the house.)

This is a "pocket page" - I always like to add a pocket to my mini-albums to stick extra photos or embellishments in.

The next mini-album is one I did for the November Album Kit at My Creative Scrapbook:

Counting Blessings

And, I've got a few things that I've done for Sweet Shoppe Designs lately:

Altered To-Go Coffee Cup - made this to put a coffee gift card inside for a Christmas Gift :)

A Little Paper Purse - Just for Fun

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Blessings Card

Well, that's all for now! Happy Holidays!!!!!!
