Please email (happynscrappin@aol.com) to receive your kit!

THEY Have Picked

Before you leave, I just wanted to show you a One-Page LO and a Two-Page LO I was able to create with the left over material I had from following the instructions included in the Noel Kit by MM. 
After all this, I still have enough to create another mini album!!!!!!

The only additional items in this Two-Page LO is the ribbon, the two pins and the snowflake border (I used MS punch and glitter).
I just need to do the journal entry on the left page.  Jasmine signed the right one. She was so happy to have received this pillow pet. (My daughter told me that she really wanted it, so I had to go get it for her!!, I mean, I told Santa!!!).....Now, how can Reyes Magos/Wise Men top this!!! (Please come by on Thursday for HOP starting here celebrating El Dia De Reyes!
The only additional item here is the faceted jewels which I colored with a Copic R89 Sketch marker.
And I still have plenty of glitter cut-out, rub-ons, felt and musical flowers to play with!!!

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for visiting and leaving such sweet comments!!!

Noel Mini Album by MM

Just here to remind you that you have until tomorrow to enter for a chance at this beautiful and versatile mini album kit by Making Memories brought to you by
This is my Mini Album

It comes with so many supplies that if you follow the instructions included, you will have enough to create 2, yes two of this mini albums and have enough leftover for much more.
I followed the layering instructions for the poinsettia with the exception of adding a piece of bakers twine and a faceted jewel.  For the Joy ticket instead of adhering the metallic holly leaf under, I adhered on top and added two faceted jewels. I colored the faceted jewels with a Copic marker to match. I love the rich color attained.
The instructions ask if you have a Slice to cut 4 designs, but since I do not have one (I could have used another cutting machine such as Cricut), I decided to show you how much you can do without a cutting machine.  Just with the abundant supplies you will get in this kit!
The instructions ask that you add the word joy cut with your slice.  I instead used a rub-on included of the word Joy and some stars. For the left page I again added a rub-on of a holly on top of a journaling stamp. (not included)
For this page you are asked to cut a piece of this beautiful paper and decided not to so that I can use for a layout. I will come back and show you the layouts, yes plural, that I created with all the leftover supplies included in this kit!  I used instead a rub-on (all included).
Here, the instructions ask that you cut with slice and place a holly. I decided to use the included glitter die-cuts. I layered the tree on top of a tag with a tree for dimension. I also added some rub-ons and more die-cuts (all included in kit)
Here I added a piece of trim and a glitter die-cut instead of just a lace trim.
For these two pages again I used the rub-ons, buttons and the glitter die-cuts all included in your kit.

Cricut A Formal Occasion, Florals Embellished, All Sports - Newest Cricut Cartridges?

As I was shopping online I came across the pictures of these cartridges and thought mhhhhh, I have not yet purchased these month's releases nor some of the previous months (such as Simply Charmed and Nifty Fifties which I just found online at $14.95 each)... After I clicked add to cart, a message asked me for my email to be notified when available. After taking a closer look, I realized that these might have not yet been released. They are perhaps the January 2011 releases?
I am hoping since the store posted the pictures, it is OK to post here.
