Countdown 2 Christmas – Day 18

Day18CountdownWelcome to day 18 of Pink Paislee’s Countdown 2 Christmas Event!  (yep..we have skipped DAY 17 but don’t worry..it will be back!) If you are just joining us you might want to go back and read all about our 25 day event HERE and HERE.  We want you to be ‘in the know’ about all of the free printables and weekly giveaways!

I have loved making homemade sugar cookies and icing from scratch for several years now.  And the last few years, my daughter has wanted to help.  I do all the ‘not so fun’ parts, as she says, and then let her know when it’s time for the fun parts.

She picks the cookie cutter, the icing color, and then helps me roll, cut, and decorate.

Our elf got in on some of the fun as well.  I used one of the stamps from the Merry and Bright collection, fussy cut it out, and adhered it and the photo to a piece of transparency I slipped into the pocket.  I love to add different types of products like this to my album.  It gives a little peek through to the next page.

@paroe @pinkpaislee #pinkpaislee #scrapbooking #pocketscrapbooking #ppcc2c #ppmerryandbrightI used washi tape to attach two of the Merry and Bright tags together, typed my journaling, added another photo to the card, punched holes and added it to the page, giving my album a little more layered look.

@paroe @pinkpaislee #pinkpaislee #scrapbooking #pocketscrapbooking #ppcc2c #ppmerryandbrightI am teaching and using the Pink Paislee Merry and Bright album and collection with the Cocoa Daisy Kits, and have absolutely love the canvas and acrylic dividers in this album.  I wanted to apply different techniques to each canvas page.  For this one, I used the different stitching designs on the sewing machine and ribbon trim for a fun holiday look.

    This has been so much fun. Each day a little surprise. I had already bought a countdown album collection, but after finding these cute printables, I ordered the cute Merry & Bright album, papers,stickers, numbers, bows, tags, cards, & ephemera. But to my dismay I also can’t find Day 17 either. Girls, you do know that He sees you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake. He knows when you are good or bad, sooo be good & please let us print out Day 17. Thank You for all your work, & cute ideas. Happy Holidays to all & to all a Good Nite :) Angel
