6x6 Christmas scrap page
Josh, age 3, his cousins told him there was no Santa. He wasn't sure what to believe so he sat by the tree the whole week before Christmas with his monkey waiting for Santa to show up. He did!
It's A Sign, Spotlight on Christmas stamp sets
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Ink: Real Red
large oval and Photo Corner punches, Black Brads

8.5x8.5 I'm Driving! scrap page
I hang a favorite page on a mini ladder just inside my stamp room. I did this to remind myself to get the photos of the first car from my son. Sadly they could not be located. So picture a beaming 16 yr. old son posing with his first car in the green picture boxes. A sporty silver number with a couple of dents!

I folded the ribbon back and forth and adhered it with Sticky Strip. The numbers are cut free hand. I put the brads on as an afterthought. I snipped the backs off and adhered them with glue dots. You can't really see it but I used the strips I punched the arrows out of behind the photos boxes.

A birthday card for 50ish!

Great projects! Love the scrapbook pages and the mini addy book is awsome! I got a good laugh at the card too! Great job using this set!

Comeka said...

Well dang it! This set has been on my wish list since it hit the catty but never made it on to an order . . . when I saw it on the retirement list, I told myself that since I had waited this long, I could probably live without it. After seeing your great projects, I'm pretty sure I CAN'T live without it! I don't know if I should thank you or be mad at you! LOL

Paula said...

Wonderful projects Kim. Love the address book.

Beth said...

Kim-these are all wonderful! The Christmas scrap page is fantastic-and what a precious memory! Sigh...none of my kiddos are driving (yet!), but the "16" page is SO clever! Love the colors and layout for the bday card and your address book is AWESOME!! TFS
