A few Christmas projects............

Kate, Emma and I have had such fun this Christmas season with our Advent calendar.  I had fun shopping for tiny treats to fill each box and the girls---well lets just say it was the first thing they did each morning when they arrived.  They each took turns opening the little door to see what treasure was inside.  Yesterday morning after opening the door and gobbling up the little chocolate inside, Emma squeeled with delight "Only THREE more days until Christmas"!!!!!!  I on the other hand thought to myself  "Only three more days until Christmas, YIKES"  I am almost ready, just a handfull  of last minute details to take care of.  Before the next few days slip by, I wanted to take a few minutes to share some Christmas projects that I have been working on with you.  My first project are these little fun peek a boo notes.  Great for gift tags.

I was so inspired by Betsy Veldman and her December 9 card project on her blog,  I decided to alter it a bit and make a few of my own for Christmas.  Instead of a card alone, I added a few blank pages inside the front and back covers to create a mini brag book.  Each little book is small enough to fit into an envelope and can be mailed just like a greeting card.  I took it a bit further and added a few blank lined papers for sending that special friend your secret family holiday recipes.

And a few fun Christmas cards using the Holiday Button Bits stamp set from PaperTrey Ink. 
Well I hope you enjoyed these fun little Christmas projects.  I am off to finish up all those last minute details before I totally run out of time.  Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas.

Everything that comes out of your studio is off the cute meter! Your peek-a-boo notes are so clever and now your new brag books are great. I love all of the vintage images you've used. I might have to work a deal with you....maybe a trade for a certain Santa banner????
I wish you the Happiest of Christmases and a New Year filled with God's rischest Blessings! Hugs for the Alexes, too.
