Photo dump! Most of what I've made this month has involved paper or fabric. I've made birthday cards, bookmarks, scrapbooks, wallets, storybooks, and doll clothes.

This isn't everything but it's most of it. Phew! Glad Xmas is tomorrow! Happy holidays!

Since we're photo bombing with doll clothes, here are some from my stash crafting. They're all pink this time because I've been too lazy to change my thread spool and bobbin. Think my next color will be yellow.  Grin

Then some paper crafting.

14  Re: Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: December 10, 2015 12:27:56 PM
Received the last of my ornaments, so it's "photo blast time".
This cat ornament from Camelama may seem to have a problem (Notice the left ear is mostly missing). That's because Raily, dh#1's kitten, had a run-in with a truck engine that resulted in losing a little bit of her tail and most of her left ear. The kitten is fine and extremely full of energy, but I wanted an ornament that would reflect how she looks.
The bottle brush tree ornament from AIMR is in my favorite Christmas color combination, blue, white, and silver. It's made from her mother's old hair rollers, so it's precious to me. I know how very close AIMR and her mother were, so I'm especially happy to share something that once belonged to her.

I love penguin ornaments and wooden ones, so the combination is perfect for me! I appreciate the extra fabric ornaments that Thimbles71 sent as well. Can't wait to meet you in June!

Love the sassy-looking girl in the vintage ornament Lindyv321 sent.

The wire star from Sarasmile is the first all wire ornament I've added to my Craftster collection. Love everything about it, but especially how dimensional it is and the built-in loop for hanging. Clever!
Then to get another wire ornament this round was an added bonus. Thanks to Ratfinkz I now have a beaded wire tree for my tree. How fun!

Thank you all so much! Happy holidays!

Photo dump! A Nightmare Before Christmas mini-wall hanging I made for a swap and a floral arrangement I made for a church party.

Next up, some crafts I made at a Stampin' Up convention in October.

And finally, a Santa necklace I started earlier this fall but just finished.

16  Re: 2015 Holiday Tags and Cards Swap GALLERY - send outs 11/04 in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: November 04, 2015 07:01:25 PM
I received these gorgeous cards and tags from flygirl88. It's hard to tell but everything is embossed with metallic embossing powders. Simple but so elegant! Definitely my favorite style. And since I got some snowflake tags of my own,  I don't have to be jealous of the ones Smashu received.  Grin

These wonderful cards and tags were from smashu. All the designs are her own creation. She's such a talented artist. I especially enjoyed the penguin ones. So cute to use gift wrapped fish as the background for the penguin couple! I thought the gift tags were made on thin wood until I looked at the edge of one. They're so firm; it came as a real surprise to see they were corregated cardboard.


Thanks! It's going to be hard to let any of these go.

17  Re: Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Halloween Rnd 3! in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: October 19, 2015 11:17:38 PM
Received my package today from Witchhippie and it's wonderful!
The crafted item is a small plaque/ornament of a cat. I said that I liked black cats, so 'Voila!', now I have a black cat. I wish we had an aroma app because this smells good enough to eat. It smells like cinnamon and pumpkin pie. Yum! How did you add the scent, Witchhippie?

A miniature set of cast iron pots, skillets, and cooking accessories. I belong to a Dutch oven cooking group and love miniatures, so these are absolutely perfect for me!!!!!

Three large clothes pins, a container of orange glass beads and one of black beads, 4 different colors of spider print ribbons, and a cute roll of black cat washi tape.

A variety of appliques and two elements (candy corn and jack-o-lantern) to use for crafting. I'll probably add magnets to the back to make holiday refrig magnets.

A ton of stickers plus some Halloween paper clips that I'll use in my papercrafting

A Snoopy and Woodstock keychain, an adorable little stone cottage, a tiny potion bottle, a skull punch, and a skeletal Hello Kitty full of candy

Beads, buttons, and glittery jack-o-lanterns

Some glass beads with floral designs melted onto the surface, silver medallions with pop-dots that I may use for cardmaking, and a stone heart that's beautiful! I think I'll use bronze jewelry fittings and chain to turn it into a necklace. I know I'll love wearing it!

Thanks so much for having been my partner, Witchhippie!

This is my offering, a peppermint lollipop ornament. It measures about 3" in diameter. I'm holding it to give you a better idea of its size.

19  Re: Givers and Needers Swap Round 13 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: September 03, 2015 03:30:30 PM
Received my thank you gift yesterday from Grannie Lois. She sent so much that the priority box bulged! Grin
She sent three sizes of knitting needles for knitting in the round or making afghans plus a cable holder. DD#1 is the knitter in our household so she claimed those.

Then Grannie Lois sent crochet tools and labels which I'm holding onto since I do a lot of crocheting.

Some scrubbies that are cotton yarn on one side and netting on the opposite side. They're going to get a ton of use because my Dutch ovens can't be put in the dishwasher, so they have to be handwashed.

Then my personal favorites - gorgeous handcrafted cards with envelopes. The autumn one is spattered with copper metallic ink that makes it sparkle. Four of the cards are dry embossed and there are a variety of other embellishments plus several of the cards have sentiments stamped on their interiors. Great job on all of them! I think Grannie Lois's next swap needs to be a card swap!
