Scrappers Night Before Christmas

Scrapper's Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,"Hi Santa, " I said
"You know....good little girlsShould be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa,And now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited To see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look In this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly,And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim As he put it in gear.
"You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!"

Merry Christmas everyone and hurry hide all your 'crap' so Santa can bring you more ;0)

Pictures with Santa and Puppies

Well we went to DH work party on Thursday night and it was pretty fun to get together with everyone. I was kind of bummed because it has gotten to the point where I really dont know a lot of people there anymore, I used to know them all because I worked there also ;0) But it was nice to see old friends.

DD was sure to point out that Santa was a fake! She knew who he was and could see his uniform patches through the suit. I was sure to let her know that Santa is really busy this time of year and he cant make it to all the Christmas parties so he has to have helpers and Toby just happened to be his helper this year. Oh she is way to smart!

Oh and DH had to get his chance to sit on Santa's lap! shhh....he would probably kill me if he knew I posted this on my blog ;0)

Puppies: They are now 19 days old and as cute as ever. Meet Howler the runt who has done everything first! She is so dang cute!

This is why we call her Howler
Isnt this the cutest dogpile ever!

Don't tell Susannah this........I'm givin away $15 dollars to the store. All you've gotta do is go order at least $25 dollars worth of stuff within the next 3 days (so that'd be by Tuesday night, midnight MST) I'll randomly draw a winner from those who have purchased $25 dollars worth. Just email me at jenn@addictedscrappers.com and tell me your order number and then I'll enter you into the drawing! So thats like getting $25 dollars worth of awesome goodies for $10 bucks people! So what are ya waiting for go shopping!!!

Button Trees

I had so much fun making these I thought I would share


Foam Cones I got mine at the dollar store but they also have them at M's and WM.

Buttons and LOTS of them

Straight pins I used 2 packs on each cone so about 300 per cone

Ribbon for the bow on top

1. Figure out what buttons you want to use, I wanted mine a specfic color so I spray painted clear buttons some in blue and some with just glitter

2. Start randomly placing buttons with straight pins

3. Stagger and cover the entire cone

4. Top it off with a bow of your choice
Enjoy and if you make one make sure and link us to your creation ;0)

Weekend Projects

Here are a couple projects with instructions for you to try over the weekend ;0)
First we have an adorable holiday mailbox by Elisabeth using the Monsters Under my Bed addict kit.....yes you read it right she used totally non holiday paper for a holiday project and I think it is FANTASTIC!

This cute little mailbox is from the dollar store section of Target and was so simple and fun to alter! First, take a piece of patterned paper, 12 x 4 inches and punch a ½ inch circle 3 ½ inches up and ¼ inch in on the left side of the paper (along the long side). Snip the paper at the circle so that you can easily slip the paper over the attached handle on the mailbox. Adhere the paper with your favorite adhesive. I like to use zip dry for projects like this. Next, cut 2 strips of contrasting patterned paper, ¼ x 12 inches and adhere along the edges of the lids of the mailbox. Using the lid of the mailbox as a template, cut out 2 pieces of patterned paper and cover the lids with them. Print out “North Pole” on a piece of cardstock and trim to 1 x ¾ inches, and adhere to the top of the handle.
Embellish as desired. I used lots of stickles to add shimmer and a snowy effect.

Next we have a handy cute little gift bag for all those last minute holiday gifts. Krista created this bag using the Good Cheer Addict Kit

I know that a lot of scrappers are looking for ways to use all of the simply gorgeous Christmas themed paper to make beautiful gifts and packages for those gifts, and that includes me! I pulled out one of my gift bags I bought awhile back and decided that my December kit needed to be used to decorate it! To make a cute gift bag of your own start by purchasing a gift bag- you can find them anywhere from your local dollar store, Wal-Mart, craft store, or other department store. Next, you'll need to measure the front panel of the bag to see how tall and wide to cut your paper. The hardest part of this project is deciding which one of the adorable papers from your december kit that you want to use on the bag ;) Cut it and then adhere to the bag, you may want to use a liquid adhesive here for a stronger bond. Now all that you need to do is decorate! I used some of the chipboard shapes and faux snow from my kit add-on and a ribbon from my stash to tie a bow on the handle. I also created the tag with cardstock from my kit.

We'd love to see your scrappy creations- so if you make them be sure to post a comment with a link to your creation!

Leslie Ashe our October GAC!

Hi! I'm Leslie Ashe & I'm SO excited, not to mention HONORED to be a guest here at Addicted Scrappers. I live in Fort Worth, Texas with my cute husband Alan & our two sweet teenagers, Savannah & Shaypher. I'm so lucky to have the biggest support team & fans with this crew of mine. I've been a scrapper now for about 12 years. I got started way back when while going to a CM party. My style has changed alot through the years. I wouldn't even know how to classify my style - other than say it's a little bit of fun mixed with a whole lot of whatever I want :) I don't normally follow any rules of scrapbooking. Just whatever feels right :) I'm a big fan of bold patterns, bright colors and embellishments.
I'm very fortunate to have work published in Scrapbook Trends, Paper Trends & Cards magazines.

I currently design for Glitz Designs, Create My Keepsake, Label Tulip & The Design X Challenge Blog teams.

Leslie's creations with our October Home is Where the Heart is Kit!

12 weeks of projects #2

Supplies needed:2 pieces of 12x12 patterned paper
1 piece of cardstock (mine is 5x7)
1 clock assembly
1 canvas frame (your choice of size, I used a 13” one)
1 giant clothes pin
Paint for your canvas

Step 1- Paint your canvas and allow it to dry for 24 hours. I also spray painted my clock hands. I did it to match my papers. After your paint is dry poke a hole through for your clock. (you’ll have to do this again later, however it will be easier if you make the hole in the canvas now) You’ll also need to paint your clothes pin and allow it to dry.
Step 2- cut your 2 pieces of PP to fit onto your canvas. Leave a ½” space all the way around. I inked the edges of mine to add dimension. Then glue down.
Step 3- attach your cardstock, again I inked the edges.
Step 4- poke holes through your paper to attach your clock.
Step 5- put your embellishments on how you choose. I wanted to cover my clothes pin as best as I could so I put the large Heidi Swapp flowers over them. I cut my huge flower from a piece of paper. I inked my thickers so that they matched my papers better. That’s it! You now have a great photo display!
This project is worth 100 points!
