I cannot believe Christmas is only 3 days away! My how time flies. I needed some last minute gifts to give to some kids and I thought since our youth is so into reading books (insert sarcasm here), that I would make some book markers. I used an image that is from AiFactory as it's just a simple image that I printed in black and white, punched out with my scallop punch and added a jewel brad. I tied the end of the ribbon with a button and ta da! A book mark! Hope you enjoy and don't forget to head over to AiFactory for some great digi images. Happy Holidays!

Since I'm on the design team for Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends, I thought I better get my rear in gear and post my card for the project! The theme is angels (fitting for Christmas). My Grafico is our sponsor. I used the angel kitty digi stamp that just came out. I also post my sketches on my other blog, visit me there for some inspiration if you're stuck. Enjoy!

I'm a big fan of folded books. I even shared my first folded book project right here. You can see the post here.
But I wanted to showcase Heather this month. I am a big fan of Flickr, so many great artists post their photos of their artwork there. That's where I met Heather and let me tell you, her folder books are gorgeous!
I started doing folded books but nothing compared to her works of art. They are amazing. She also has an Etsy shop where you can purchase them! Here a few of her works from her shop and you really should go visit the rest.
