My Mom and Ma Di was in town last weekend and we celebrated Christmas early with them since they live in Florida. We were supposed to trek down to Florida for this Christmas, but with purchasing our new home and moving. It wasn’t possible, but next year we will be heading there for sure! Anyway, I had created their Christmas presents and wasn’t able to post it, just in case Mom does check the blog. :)Mom’s present is this “LOVE” blocks. I had seen another CTMH consultant do it as in “Snow” and “Frosty”. I thought I had saved that link, but unfortunately I didn’t. I will have to find it and include it here so she can get the proper credit for this idea.
I used the CTMH’s Notebook Level 2 Patterned Papers, Chocolate acrylic paint, Black vinyl, CTMH’s Clear Sparkles, SU’s Ivory organdy ribbon and SU’s Gold cord ribbon. Also, can’t forget the mod podge! 🙂
For Ma Di’s present. I had a photo cubes that I had purchased from Oriental Trading about a year and half ago, but never got around to using it up. I finally did! I wanted to create it where she could put it on her desk at work, as she is always displaying pictures of the grandchildren.
I used Stampin’ Up’s papers -they’re retired, I believe. I don’t even know the name. I didn’t save it. I did distress the edges with CTMH’s Goldrush inkpad. The acrylic paint is called “Deep Ocean Blue” by Folk Arts.
