  Welcome Kim!!

Pin It
I am over-joyed to announce 
the newest members of the Connie Can Crop family

Kim Venezia and Katy her Cavalier

Kim has been a follower of my blog for some time and I couldn't wait to ask her to join the team. Let's meet Kim and learn a little about her and Katy.

Kim has been involved in paper crafting for many years, having been introduced to it when a friend visited Kim in the hospital and brought her scrapbook along. Kim was so impressed with that scrapbook, it inspired her to begin scrap booking while recuperating. But what started out as something to fill empty hours turned into a real passion and she has been playing with paper in one form or another ever since. She lives with Katy, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who supervises Kim’s comings and goings and is the namesake of Kim’s blog.

Be sure to follow Kim on her blog Katydidcards.com

Please join me in giving Kim
A warm welcome! I know she is going to bring amazing projects to the blog!! I am so excited!
Her first project will be posted tomorrow with our new challenge and then be sure to come back and see what she has created for her DT day on Thursday!!

Angela am most thankful for my husband allowing me to be a stay at home mom so I can be involved with my boys school/sports/life to the fullest. I volunteer way too much at their school but wouldn't have it any other way.

  12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Pin It

First off HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
Welcome to the 12 days of Christmas blog hop hosted by Lisa from Honey Bearz Designs! This hop will run from 11/24-12/5 and will be full of fun Christmas ideas and inspiration to get you ready for the holiday season! Such an awesome way to get you inspired to make some holiday cards or finish up some layouts, maybe even some Christmas decor! Sit back and join us for all 12 days and be inspired! Today is day 3 and I am thankful to be the guest designer!

For my projects I thought I would share some really cute make n take projects I made at a crop over the weekend. These will all make super great stocking stuffers or gifts for your mail person, UPS person, hair dresser, or anyone else you'd like to give a little something to.

 This is a gorgeous tag using paper by Prima, some twine to tie it, a burlap bow, Prima ink, and it's stamped with a Believe stamp. Then you can tuck away a chocolate treat or a gift card, heck even a few bucks!!
 This clear pillow box is adorned with Prima paper and a gorgeous red Prima leaf. We added some jingle bells and tied it off with some white netting. You can fill it with candy, a gift card, or cash! 
 And finally this 6" clear tube is filled with Hershey Kisses. It's decorated with Prima paper, some twine and netting tied around, a tiny wooden angel dangling from it that I inked with Prima ink to match and a bunch of berries. So easy yet so pretty!
I hope I gave you a few ideas to help inspire you for some quick and easy holiday gifts!!

Head on over to Madge next! 

Line Up for Day 3 in case you get lost =)

  Thankful Thoughts

Pin It Let me begin by saying I'm very thankful to have been asked by Connie Can Crop to be a guest designer today....not to mention tickled pink!

That got me to thinking about thankfulness and, as usual, my mind kicked into fifth gear and to all the people I want or need to thank at Christmas (which will be here in the blink of an eye); so I decided to focus on making thank you/money enclosure cards for the people I've come to depend upon all year long.

First up, the mailman.  Our mailman, Rod, is probably one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet and always goes out of his way for everyone in the neighborhood.  The money holder base is my own design, so I'm happy to share a .pdf template or a Silhouette V3 cut file.

Special Delivery 1 

Next, our groomer; although this would work equally well for a pet sitter, trainer or other person involved with your dog.  I just love that soft, fluffy, sweet smelling pup I get back from DeAnna at The Dog House each month.  Katy, on the other hand, is not so thrilled at having a spa day.

Yappy Howlidays 1 

Third, the wait staff who take such good care of us at an eatery we frequent.  This is a cute way to thank anyone in the food industry.  There's the gingerbread girl in pink and the gingerbread boy in blue.  Inside is the Christmas Dough...little play on words there!

Christmas Dough 1 

And finally, the garbage man.  I call this a card, but it's also an insurance policy to make sure our trash can stays in the relative vicinity of the driveway, upright and covered.  I wanted to put a silly sentiment inside, "One man's trash...is another man's Christmas present", but I wasn't sure if that was appropriate, so I went with a simple Merry Christmas.




Garbage Collection 1

I still have more to do…my hair dresser and the newspaper man for sure.  Then I’ll probably think of a few more to make in a last minute panic.
