Another Gift

My daughter takes piano lessons from our Pastor's wife, and she is such an amazing teacher. Matti loves her, and loves playing the piano as a result of such good teaching. I found this book at Barnes & Noble, and it is actually a music composition book. Can you believe I got it for like $5 when it was originally $20? I was so elated when I found it, because Matti's piano teacher likes to write her own music as well. I used two sets that I just love from Clear Dollar Stamps; Sweet Symphony and Sheet Music (yes, I know, which ones don't I like from CDS?) I love the elegance of the sets and how beautiful they both are.

Stamps: Sweet Symphony & Sheet Music
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Paper: watercolor, K&C Co. dp, Basic Black, Brocade Blue
Accessories: air art tool, buttons, Labels 8 Nestabilities, Fancy Tags Nestabilities, Chocolate Chip & More Mustard markers, flourish chipboard, sponge, black ribbon, composition book

As I said a few days ago, I have been creating. With that in mind, I'll have more to show throughout the week. I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment ;D

Christmas Gifts

From here on for a while I will be showing all of the wonderful goodies I've been working on for Christmas gifts. These are some super fun little gifts that took no time at all once I got the box dimensions down. I didn't do up a tutorial, but these are easy enough to duplicate.
Stamps: Baby Jesus Nuggets, Holiday Nutcrackers
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Gold Leaf Cardstock, Neenah Solar White
Accessories: Sticker Sheet, Brownie Vintage Spun Twill Ribbon, Oval Nestabilities, Transparency sheet, Scor-pal, Copics, mini chocolate bars

I had a ton of fun making these for our mail carrier, the comic book store owner, and friends that my mother works with. And yes, I got everything but the chocolate bars from Clear Dollar Stamps!
These little candies are obviously not actual Hershey Nuggets, but these work just as good.

Get Sketchy

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I have been creating! I've mostly been making gifts, but creating none the less. Last night I received the most wonderful love letter from my man. Separation is hard no matter how long it is, and I know that my husband is extremely busy. I guess he could tell that I was in need of some affection, so he made my day with a lovely email. I wanted to return the love, so I made this card using the Get Sketchy sketch. I don't know what it is about this little Eskimo set called Winter Eskimo, but it is totally one of my favorite winter sets from Clear Dollar Stamps.
Stamps: Winter Eskimo
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Gray
Paper: Memory Box Butterfield dp, Not Quite Navy, Basic Gray, Neenah Solar White
