Festive Fridays - Happy Hannukah

From Wikipedia : Hanukkah : alt. Chanukah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, and may occur from late November to late December on the Gregorian calendar.
From Wikipedia : A dreidel is a four-sided spinning top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

I decided as a paper craft for this week I’d make my very own dreidel. I looked around online for a pattern and was able to track down a number of them. The one to the left is the one I eventually used.
It didn’t take me long to put it together, so not only is it fun but easy to make!
As I looked around I noticed that traditional Hanukkah colours are blue and white so using either American Crafts Winter cardstock pack or K & Co. Remake cardstock paper pad you can trace the pattern onto the paper or print it directly on the paper. After you have your pattern on the paper it’s a matter of cutting it out and gluing it.

I’ve used a pen for the stick part, you could use a small dowel or make your own out of a scrap of paper. I created a simple Star of David to put on top of my dreidel by cutting out two identical triangles and fitting them together.
So there you have it, a dreidel for Hanukkah!

Festive Fridays - Holiday Cheer!

Oh the weather outside is frightful! But the fire inside's delightful.

For those of you that are local, you know what it looks like outside. For those that aren't, we're on our second big snowfall of the week and it's just piling up. I know on my street, the trees are covered in ice, a few of them have snapped in half and more are bent over because of the weight. It's been time to curl up in front of a fire (if you've got a fireplace) and otherwise under blankets with loved ones.

Once you've got yourself all warmed up, it's time to scrap! There are some great products available, perfect for the holiday season either for yourself or for friends and family. Give the gift of scrapping, it's the gift that keeps on giving and will last for years to come.

Joy to the world!

Festive Fridays - Happy Sinterklaasavond

This month is all about holidays and the festive spirit. There are so many holidays that happen this time of year, it's not just Christmas!

Today is Sinterklaasavond, something that coming from a Dutch family has become tradition.

Taken from wikipedia : Sinterklaas (also called Sint-Nicolaas or De Goedheiligman in Dutch and Saint Nicolas in French) is a traditional holiday figure in the Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles and Belgium, celebrated every year on Saint Nicholas' eve (December 5) or, in Belgium, on the morning of December 6. The feast celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas, patron saint of, among other things, children.

So for this evening I've been making icicle boxes to hold small treats and goodies in. They are also extremely useful for small Christmas gifts. I've used paper from the American Traditional Designs Scrapbook Bundle Kit - Christmas Party. For only $9.99 you get over 500 pieces, you could make an entire themed album with this package!

Numerous patterns can be found for icicle boxes online for free. Once assembled using cardstock, they can be decorated any way you'd like. I wanted to keep mine simple as you can see although I will be adding glitter to them, but the goodies inside will be a nice surprise. They can be hung on a tree, attached to a larger gift or just given as is.

So Hartelijk Sinterklaasavond and have a great weekend!

Quick talk on Prima's Christmas Fancy Hybrid (RFH) CD - Parlons du CD Hybride de Prima Marketing

Hello Ladies,
I spent last night playing around with Prima's new Christmas Fancy Hybrid CD, it was a ton of fun! Christmas Fancy is spankin' new line it's ornate and unique, vibrant and versatile, just the perfect mix of traditional holiday imagery and delightful colors and patterns to backdrop all of your special holiday moments, memories and smiles! If you haven't got your copy, hurry these are HOT HOT HOT I tell ya!

What even more amazing is that not all of the digital products in this CD are holidayish... meaning you could even use these patterns for all year round projects! That's a BIG plus in my book! I love FRESH and this one is just screaming to be worked on, also I'd like to point out that you really don't need Adobe Photoshop Elements (to use this CD, I used an old and discontinued version of Microsoft Digital Image Suite software which worked as GREAT!

Coordinates perfectly with I'd say all of Prima's physical products! Here's a sample of a page that you can add your own photos, customize with both digital and physical embellishments and voila a perfect hybrid layout ready for printing.


Bonjour les filles,
j'ai passé la nuit dernière a découvrir les produits contenu dans le nouveau Christmas Fancy Hybrid CD de Prima Marketing. Je me suis amusée énormément! «Christmas Fancy» est une nouvelle collection qui est unique, vibrante et très souple, juste le mélange parfait du Noël traditionnel et les couleurs délicieuses pour vos moments, mémoires et sourires spéciaux! Si vous n'avez pas obtenu votre copie faites-vites ceux-ci sont CHAUD CHAUD CHAUD!!!
Le plus étonnant de ce CD c'est de ne pas retrouver seulement des thèmes de Noël mais une collection diverse pouvant être utilisée pour divers projets a l'année longue. Celui-ci est un GROS plus dans mon livre!
Coordonne parfaitement avec dirais-je tout les produits «actuelle/physique» de Prima Marketing, customisez-les avec vos photos et embellissements et retrouvez-vous avec une page Hybride parfaite et prête à être imprimée!

Fun Fridays - Tea anyone?

This week we're looking at Amy Butler's K&Co. Lotus Tea Box collection. First off, it's so pretty! Pictures can NOT do it justice. There are glittered pages, flocked pages (that scream to be touched!) and foiled pages. The designs are gorgeous and I knew before I even had the paper in my hands what my first page would be.

Over the summer I had taken pictures with my family when we went to St. Joseph's Oratory and there were a few with my sister that I loved, so I used those. I had played around with colour (again) in photoshop to make her t-shirt and cap "pop". She's the best little sister anyone could ask for.

I had the paper pack and the ephemera box of die cuts to work with, so my layout actually used letters from my stash. The die cuts are adorable, colours that are bright yet subdued (not sure how that works out) and did I say adorable? So in I went, getting lost in family photos. I'm sure I"ll be using this for more family layouts as it works so well.

So overall. Pretty, adorable, gorgeous! I love this set and those that would know me wouldn't probably think that that's right, but I LOVE it! Go check out the other items available too.

What do the pages inspire in you and what would you use them for? Enquiring minds want to know!

Problem with comments - Fixed

We heard from you that there were issues with leaving anonymous or unregistered comments. It's been fixed, so as of now, you do not have to be a registered user to leave a comment. Hopefully that will help some of you out there who may have wanted to leave a comment but didn't want to register.

Sorry about that, we didn't realise the blog was set that way.

Phew, glad to know it's been fixed... maybe now we'll hear more from you guys!

Times running out...

Hey guys,

hope you've all had a wonderful weekend! I watched Mamma Mia! twice on Saturday with my DH and on Sunday with my folks. It truly was a beautiful movie, it got rated 7/10 on IMBD which is pretty good. It had all of ABBA's top hits!

I am so in love with Pierce Brosnan, I must also tell you that he has absolutely no singing talent but it's just so refreshing to watch him, he's so darn cute!
Moving on... we'll be accepting all contest entries today and tomorrow so this is your last chance to win those awesome prizes! We've got a GREAT RAK so come on ladies, speak up tell us about your last selfless act... that's all you gotta to... Have a good one, ciao for now! ~ Nini :)

Fun Fridays - Speak up, don't be shy!

Happy Friday everyone! I got so caught up in my week that I actually forgot about my post... eek! What will Nini say???

First off, I want to remind everyone that there are only a few days left in the current poll, don't forget to vote. Right now of course it looks like readers want monthly kits and this is absolutely great! I know that Nini has got some great ideas planned for December, so you'll need to keep checking back to see what she's going to offer you. You won't be disappointed though, I never am.

Secondly, the most recent post was about a RAK and the only way you are going to have a chance to get it is to post a comment. Tell us about your most RAK and you could have that great collection sent your way :-)

And lastly, this blog may only have a couple people who write posts, but we need YOUR input and feedback so we'll know what you want. Without you, the readers, telling us what you'd like to see, we could be going in a completely opposite direction as to what you want and that would be such a shame. As far as I can tell you don't need to register to post a comment, it can be completely anonymous if you want it to be.

So I've decided that my post today is going to be a fun one that needs your input. I'd like all that read this, to post a comment telling us something about yourself, ask us something if you want, tell us your favorite colour... anything. You can tell us a joke, remember to keep it PG as there may be younger readers, tell us something you saw recently that made you happy. Really, anything. Tell us what you'd like to see if that's what tickles your fancy. Don't let Nini and I be the only ones that are posting comments to each other, we write enough emails as it is *lol*

I'll start : My favourite holiday is
Halloween (see pumpkin to the right) , my favourite colours are orange, green (note the scarf) and purple and I love to watch vampire tv shows and movies. Spooky enough for you?

Now, it's your turn! We want to know something... anything, c'mon you know you want to!

RAKs anyone? ~ A more personal note...

Howdy! How has your day been today!? My day has been a complete disaster let me tell you why... My hubby, Frank works the graveyard shift, he basically leaves around 9 PM and comes home 'round 8 AM, honestly he can't get a good "mornings" sleep, with our talking GSD Nikko, yes he's really a talking one, plus Chancho who barks and howls like crazy... and finally our son Davian aka "Devil" who gets so excited when his "daddy" comes home from work, he won't stop calling him over and over again... he has never called his father dad, daddy or heck I dont know Daddy-O he calls his father and I quote "sunny". That's not all he has never called me mom, mommy, or mama... he calls me "ninu" how weird and cute is that?! Back to my story, Frank can't sleep I haven't slept much because Davian took an extra long nap last night which was good for Frank (so he could sleep in a bit before leaving for work) but not so good for me since I had to watch Davian until 3 AM this morning and he woke up at 7:15, I haven't had much sleep... The result I'm DEAD for the day! Well that's life right! :)

Anyways.... enough whining for today and let's move onto something a bit more fun!

RAKs Anyone???

A random act of kindness is a purportedly selfless act performed by a person or persons wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual or in some cases even an animal. There will generally be no reason other than to make people smile, or be happier. Either spontaneous or planned in advance, random acts of kindness are encouraged by various communities.
I have collected lots of scrapbooking and stamping items during the years... My own personal inventory boy do I have bins and boxes of them LOL, few new releases here and there... 'Tis the season to be jolly... and I'm more than jolly I'm in the giving mood!!! If you care for a RAK simply comment on this post by telling us:

What was the last selfless act you did to make something, or someone, happy?

Here's what's included in my scrapping RAK! I will be doing this the old fashioned way, all you're names will go into a hat and I'll make Frank or Davian pick one, the lucky RAK winner will be announced next Thursday 27/11 :) Remember this RAK is for anyone and everyone!!!

Thank you for your time and friendship, happy scrapping! ~ Nini
