What's your favorite part of Christmas? Mine has to be Christmas morning. I have so many wonderful memories of our family traditions, and now I'm continuing those for our sweet little girl.

Here's my newest kit, "Christmas Morning" to reflect this magical time of the year. This is a Limited Edition kit (with beautifully flocked background paper!!), so when they're gone, they're gone. And I will let you know right now that half of these are already sold to the ladies who were at my Christmas Party and the class before that. So be warned that these may sell out quickly. The last Limited Edition kit (A Haunting We Will Go) sold out in 9 hours. Yikes!

This kit is $20. If you're local, you're welcome to pick it up starting December 10th, or I'm happy to ship. Shipping will be $5 in California, or $6 to $8 for the rest of the US depending on location. Kits will start shipping out on Thursday, December 10th.

To make this layout as shown, you'll need: the Expression machine, Joys of the Season cartridge, a font cartridge (I used Lyrical Letters, but Plantin Schoolbook or any basic font will look great)black and brown chalk ink, 3D pop-dots, tiny hole punch for brad, White gel pen (Signo Uniball is best), and "Candy Cane" or any red Stickles glitter glue, plus your basic tools and adhesive.

This kit will include: all of the materials needed to complete the project - patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, silver brad and twine. Plus you'll get my detailed, yet easy to follow directions which include my Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut on your machine with all of the settings. And the cuts are all grouped by color so it's very efficient. There are also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.

To order your kit, or if you have any questions, just email me at I also have several other kits available, and can send you the list if you'd like.

Have a very Merry Christmas!!!

Chilly greetings from frosty California! It's about 10am, and I just did the random drawing for the Vinyl Blog Candy Giveaway, hosted by Expressions Vinyl.

To celebrate hitting 500+ followers (wow!!!), I'm hosting a Blog Candy giveaway sponsored by Expressions Vinyl. I've been singing their praises since I discovered them a few months ago, and have used their vinyl on several recent projects including glass etching, T-shirts, decorative tile, wall art, and even some metallic Hello Kitty car decals for my friend Leslie. :) I love this site because they carry the same vinyl that PC sells, but it's way cheaper and they have tons of colors (I can't even keep up - I need the brand new ones!). Plus their shipping is extremely reasonable and super fast. And you can even order color swatch rings, which I have found quite helpful. Plus they have videos and project ideas on their site. Huge HUGE recommendations for this place, and a giant thanks to them for sponsoring this awesome giveaway!

Expressions Vinyl will give away one Christmas Color pack of 12x24 vinyl, and one Winter Color pack. There are even some metallic sheets in each pack - yummy!! Just post a comment here on my blog and tell me what kind of vinyl project you'd like to try. I always love to hear ideas! Also, make sure you're a follower on my blog or if you're posting anonymously then leave me your email address so I can contact you if you win. You have until Tuesday morning at 9am Pacific Time to post as that's when I'll do the random drawing. Don't forget to check back here to see the winners. Let the games begin!!!

Pssssssst!! Want a bonus entry??? Just visit the Expressions Vinyl website HERE, check out all of their vinyl colors (don't miss the metallics toward the bottom), and then come back here and post an EXTRA comment saying which vinyl colors are your favorites.
