Sundays With Lorraine

Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper. I hope that you’ve all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are ready to kick it into gear for some serious holiday crafting.  It’s time to gather your creative peeps and have a crafting day.

Oh What Fun 4X6 SN@P Album by Traci Penrod

Let’s start out with an adorable holiday-themed mini album. Whether you need a unique gift or just want to create a fun album to record those special holiday memories, you’re going to love this sweet album designed by Traci.  Simple Sets takes all the guesswork out of designing the perfect keepsake.

I hope you’ve been inspired to transfer some of those precious pics from your phone and into a mini album. Click here and I’ll take you over to the Simple Stories Blog so you can see just how quickly you can complete an entire album using Simple Stories pocket albums. I know it’s hard to believe but not everyone is a talented scrapbooker like yourself, so why not share your talent with those you love – giving the gift of memories is priceless.

Warm Wishes by Tracy Freeman

Who says Christmas needs to be red and green? I love how Tracy steps outside the box and uses different shades of blues and purple to create this adorable holiday card. Can’t you picture a little pocket on the inside holding a gift card for their favorite coffee house? You might want to make several of these little beauties to keep on hand in case you need an extra gift.  With a gift card inside, that gift is a wrap!

Gift cards sometimes get a bad rap for being uncreative or unthoughtful, but when you create a beautiful handmade card and you personize the gift card to include their favorite place to shop, I think it’s a perfect gift. “I don’t want this $100 gift card to my favorite place to shop,” said NO ONE EVER!.

Christmas Stocking by Mandy

I love these shabby chic Christmas stockings and you’ll be happy to know that there is no sewing involved. Crew member, mixed media artist, and crafty gal, Mandy Leever-Koel has put together a kit which includes everything you’ll need to complete these adorable holiday stockings.

You might want to make several of these little beauties as the girls are going to love them and you could even use them in place of a gift bag, it’s like a gift within a gift!

Stuffed Shells Bolognese

Since you were busy spending a large portion of your day in your happy place (the craft room), I thought you could use a little help with the dreaded question, “Whats For Dinner?”  You are probably all turkey-ed out, so how about a little Italian for a change of pace?  Click here and I will be happy to take you over to the Food Network Blog so you can print out the recipe. This meal can be on the table in about 35 minutes, you can’t even order a pizza in that amount of time.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by. I hope you will have a wonderful week ahead of you, and I’ll see you next Sunday with some fun and festive holiday inspiration.

Hugs to all!
