Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday DT Post

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and good times spent with those you love. We had a wonderful Christmas, our family is such a blessing:) 

Well it's Friday again and that sure makes me smile....It's Fun Friday over at Little Scrap Pieces and we have some great inspiration for you from the DT, aren't they fabulous! The theme this week is "Winter" so please pop over and join in the fun.

Here is a little ornament I created for some of the Aunties & Uncles in the family. In the picture you only see 3 however I made 15 of these. My family teased me and said where are the ornaments for my oldest son? I said...they don't take pictures in college :) haha! 
I used the Lil Inker Instant camera die the school pics (2x3) fit perfectly!

I added a snowflake from the Gyspy wandering cartridge.
The sentiment is from My creative Time 
Some perfect pearls & a rhinestone...easy peasy!

I thought I would add one more winter project. We had a Holiday party a couple weeks back and as the good hostess I tending to my guest and really didn't have the chance to take pictures :( I did create a Hot Cocoa bar for the kids that was an absolute hit! I managed to get some photos of the cute little cups I made.
I used a cup warmer from starbucks as a template and just ran kraft cardstock through the paper crimper. Added a gorgeous snowflake and the kids loved them....I even saw a few adults with them :)

Here is our bar all decked out for the party. I wish I had more pics :(

Holiday Money Holders

Hi Everyone!

How is everything going? Are you ready? Wow, I have NEVER been so behind in my life. I just wish I had one more week:)
Here are the money holders I made for some of the kids in the family! I really like them, super easy and fun!  Please stop by tomorrow for the LSP DT post! Lots of great inspiration!
I used two 5" squares and used a circle punch to cut out the center.

The scallop circles is from Accent Essentials and the holder at the top was cut from 
Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge
The paper is an old American Crafts stack that I've had for a while.
I used a gold rubber metallic stretchy cord for the ring.
