Hello, my crafty friends and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper. With the holidays fast approaching I want you to know that I have your back. I’ll be posting lots of holiday gift ideas, home decor projects, cards, and scrapbooking projects. I’m a firm believer that the best gifts come from the heart, not the store. My hope for you is that you have your holiday preparations done in plenty of time to enjoy this special time of year.
The gift of memories is one of the most precious gifts that you can give to those special people in your lives. Even if the recipient isn’t a scrapbooker, this adorable layout would be a treasured gift when displayed in a shabby chic frame or even a shadowbox.
What girl wouldn’t love a cute shadowbox frame showcasing a precious photo that was beautifully transformed into a unique jewelry holder? I recently made one for a friend using a shadowbox that had a chicken wire front in place of glass. She loved it and her Brighton earrings are hanging on it as we speak. If you’d like to see the shadow box I used, it was purchased at Michaels – click here and I’ll take you over. I’m sorry that I don’t have a photo of the one that I made, but I’m sure you get the idea.
I’m sure that you have lots of friends and family that are expecting one of your famous handmade Christmas cards this year. Well, not to worry, with a little help from our creative friend Kittie, you too can crank out several of these elegant cards in no time.

Trimming the Christmas tree has always been something I look forward to every year. Regardless of our decorating styles, we pull out our ornament collections, many with sweet memories attached, and savor unwrapping each one and finding just the perfect place to hang it on the tree. This new collection titled Vintage Ornaments II by Papertrey Ink is sure to bring back those priceless memories.
The Vintage Ornaments II set contains 27 images in all. The largest ornament (both the outline image and the assembled multi-step images) measures 1-5/8” x 2-5/8”. The smallest ornament measures 1-1/4” x 1-3/4”. The long, skinny ornament measures 3/4” x 2-1/2” and the round ornament measures 1-1/2” x 1-7/8”. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? This stamp and die set is going to be perfect for your cards and tags! Have fun with this must-have collection.
Pork tenderloin marinated to perfection and smothered with an incredible Mexican corn salsa. This may not be dinner in under 30 minutes, but it’s sure to be a huge hit with your family and friends.
Chelsea took the components from Mexican street corn and incorporated them into this Mexican corn salsa. Click here and I will personally escort you over to her amazing blog Gal On A Mission so you can print out the recipe. You might want to print out several copies because everyone will be asking you for the recipe.
Thanks for stopping by; may the spirit of the holidays be with you throughout the entire year!
