Happy World CardMaking Day and Think Pink

Today is World CardMaking Day and I'm hoping (NO, I WILL) to get some time this afternoon and evening to create. I have some swaps that are coming up on being due so I need to get those going and I have some other projects that I want to work on. I received my first Paper Pretties box a week and a half ago and I have yet to play with. I also completed an order for two of the MFT stamp sets that just came out and yesterday I placed an order for a couple of bellas and sentiments (couldn't pass up the no shipping charge deal).

In honor of WCMD I am having some travel snacks- actually 2 travel snacks. I am having a "Think Pink" candy (pink ribbon, pink buttons, pink primas, and anything else I can find that's pink). I'm also offering another snack that includes a couple of the clear stamp sets and some other odds and ends (I found some great things to include in my varous shopping endeavors= they are just not all together so I have to gather them). Hmm... what should I have you do- just comment and let me know if you are planning any projects for Christmas gift- you will get an extra chance for linking me to a sample or tutorial of that project! Can't wait to see what you all will be doing!

Almost forgot the final detail- this will close Tuesday at 9:00 (I have a PTA meeting at school and will draw when I get home). Enjoy your day!

I always make Christmas cards to send out. Last year I made tins full of peppermint bark as well as a bunch of different ornaments for people. http://craftsonawhim.com/node/35

These are some I made. I want to do candles this year (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/stampedcandles.php) I tried one and they are so simple and turn out great.

Thanks for the giveaway! I don't get hundreds of replies on my blog, like Beate or Allison, but I have a lot of fun anyway! Keep up the great work!

I am not quite sure yet, but my holiday gifts will be scrapbooks for family and friends! I can't post them because some of the people are nosey and might see it before they're supposed to see it! Each one is designed separately so no patterns or tutorials...sorry about that! I may make similar ones and put them on my blog though!

Donna said...

I am going to be doing nugget tins. I have 3 samples on my blog at http://rubystamper.blogspot.com

I hope I can squeeze in the time to make lots more too! I've got a few more ideas!
Thanks for offering candy!!

I suppose I had better start thinking of gift ideas. lol I was thinking of doing up some mini albums as gift ideas since they always are a hit. Thanks for the chance to win.

I usually make a few things for my stamping friends - journals, planners, that sort of thing, but I have nothing specific in mind yet. I just finished my Halloween stuff, now I can put my thinking cap on for Christmas!

scrappintrish said...

I actually am not making anything for anyone for Christmas. I actually got one of my friends and I know that she wants things for her house. I will put a home made card with the gifts though!.. :)

CAKVD said...

Oh, both of your travel snacks sound FABULOUS!!! I'm going to start working on my Christmas stuff just as soon as I get my Christmas stamps! Can you believe that I don't have any Christmas stamps yet?? But I am going to make an explosion box with 20 photos of my daughter for both my mom and my MIL. Thanks!

Happy belated WCMD. I hope you had a good one. We celebrated Thanksgiving and were with family so no cards from me. I am planning a few projects for Christmas but as always I wait till the last minute to start.

I'm going to stamp tiles this year, everyone will be getting coasters! I was also thinking of doing house # signs on slabs of slate, I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the chance at the candy!

I'm not sure yet... I do make sets of cards for gifts.. but that's all I have in mind so far.. too much on the go this year!

The covered note pads are usually a big hit and easy to mass produce.

Also, I had great success with my chocolate santa's at the craft show.

Hi Tami!
Great idea for WCMD...pink candy!

My project for Christmas is to make several of the little origami boxes that I found on Kristina's blog:
