The 12 Days of Christmas

At Scrap Shotz and The Inspired Scrapper, we are doing 12 Days of Christmas inspiration. I hope you will join me for some amazing inspiration.

One of my posts is creating quick, easy and heartfelt placecards. This year, these placecards on my dining table will serve two purposes: (1) to beautify our experience and place sharing and (2) for me to give a heartfelt wish for each guest.

To make these placecards actually doable for Christmas amidst the hectic events, I am choosing to keep the placecards simple and to embellish with leftover greenery from my front porch display.

Supplies: Bazzill (cardstock); My MInds Eye (pattern paper); Dazzlers (flower); American Crafts (alphas)

December Daily

Ugh...I have been so busy lately and haven't been able to post as much as I would like...please bear with me! I am on the home stretch with my crowns. If you recall, I cracked 2 molars when I was eating almonds and popcorn with the girls. Here I was trying to set an example and boom, the teeth cracked. And anytime I go to the dentist, it just wipes me out. I feel yucky for days and days...hence my neglected blog.

However, I have been scrapping here and there and will be scrapping alot this weekend. I have several projects to share but I can't reveal them yet...sorry! I would like to share a page from my December daily though. This album has turned out to be one of my favourites and my girls too. It has been so fun to write in the journal and capture our activities surround Christmas and Santa.

I'll be revealing all the pages of the album as I get the pictures printed.

(Watch for my Genuinely Jane Studios project just after Christmas, my Inspired Scrapper projects just before Christmas and my Urban Swank projects in January!)

When is Santa Coming?

Tomorrow is December 1st and I just know someone is going to ask, how many more days until Christmas? We have our letters to Santa done...not mailed yet but done! LOL There is only 3 more weeks of school; family has called to book their time to spend with us and we have lists and lists of things we want to finish...eek!

To countdown the days until Christmas, I made some countdown blocks. I have wanted to make these for a couple of years but never seem to make the time. Here they are...

Here is a close-up of the banner...

And the blocks...

There are a variety of supplies used and some of which I do not know the source *blush*...the pattern papers are My Minds Eye, the numbers are from previous Scrap Shotz kits.

A note about the numbers...the first block is numbered from 0 to 5 and the second block has numbers 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
