Hi!! I am so excited to be part of this super fun team!!
My name is Kelli, but I tend to go by kel. I'm a happily married mom to 3 boys, ages 10, 7, and 2 1/2 months. Yikes! That^^^ pic is with #3 the morning after he was born! My life is full of crazy and my boys keep me on my toes!! I live in beautiful Kaneohe, Hawaii on the island of Oahu... I was born and raised on the island and never wanted to leave! I am a non-traditional college student on break from pursuing a double major in History and Asian studies with aspirations to be a college professor.
I started scrapbooking in 2003 when pregnant with my oldest son, turned into a collector, and then started seriously creating again in 2013 because my stash grew out of control! Who am I kidding... it's still outta control!! haha! I like to think of myself as a clean and simple stamper... I gravitate towards clean lines and minimal embellishments when I craft. I LOVE patterned paper and cardstock!! I have recently fallen in LURRRRRVE with making cards, but my real passion is for scrapbook layouts... although from my blog you might not be able to see that! I also have tons of fun with little gifts, tags and mini-albums although the minis take so much time!
Whimsie Doodles was one of my first digi stamp purchases when I found out about digi stamps... but then it sat on my computer for AGES because I didn't know what to do with it! haha! So glad to be part of this super fun team and looking forward to whatever comes next!! Come visit me at my blog, Scraps & photoGRAFFS to see my fun creations and meet my beautiful family!!
Now on to my card for today... I'm using all FOUR wonderful images from the Santa & Friends set (in the middle of the "What's New" page) because I couldn't decide which one to use! lol.
I also went with this super fun, super old (get used to seeing super old paper from me lol!!) KI Memories paper with these non-traditional Christmas colors! Love it!
Thanks for swinging by... can you believe Christmas is only ONE WEEK away?!?!?! So much left to do!!!
lovies, =o) kel

Hi, it's Mary J again and I'm here with another Christmas card I've made using Whimsie Doodle's Santa & Friends set (again!)...
This is one of the cutest Santas EVER! I used some Digital Design Essential papers, my Quickutz snowflake embossing folder and My Favorite Things alpha dies.
Okay, I gotta dash now - so much to do before Christmas gets here! Have a lovely weekend all!
Hi, it's Mary J
here! Have you all got your Christmas cards finished and posted now? I haven't! I thought I had mine all done but I have a massive short fall so I'm manically getting them done!! So, here is one of the cards that I made for my Grandma...
I love this Mrs Claus - her pinny is so sweet and the way she looks over the top of her glasses is classic! She is from the Santa & Friends
set. I thought the doily die cut would look sweet behind her and I topped it off with punched holly and berries.
Not long now until our next monthly challenge and we'll also be announcing the new design team! Come back on 15 December to meet them all - see you then!
