Divas on Monday!

I have some news....that you can find out more about at the end of the post.  And I also have three of the Divas for you today sharing their projects.  And they have created a wide range of them for you.

First up is Diva Mimi Leinbach and she has some fun gift giving ideas for you to whip up this holiday season.

She made this adorable little perpetual calendar that can be used year after year.  School is Cool was the collection she choose to use on it, because it had some fun patterns that would work all year round.

She got the calendar at AC Moore, in case you want to create one of these little goodies for someone as a gift.

Then she altered these adorable little tins with the Gingerbread Land collection!  She found the tins in the Dollar Spot at Target (one of my favorite stores, btw!).  She is planning on stuffing them full of all kinds of bath and body goodies, like lip gloss, body lotions, etc.  I bet she throws some candy in there!

Now we have Diva Deana Boston, who has some fun Gingerbread Land projects to share with us.  

Using a styrofoam ball, ribbon, stick pins, circle punch, and a sheet of paper from the Gingerbread Land collection, Deana created this adorable hanging ornament.  She made it for the CHA booth and it's even cuter in person.  

And who doesn't love to play in the snow?  The Gingerbread Land collection has some "basic" paper that you can use for more than Christmas layouts, but just winter ones.

And last, but not least is Diva Jen Matott.  She used the Gingerbread Land collection also to make a layout.  AND she created another ornament that is adorable also!

Who doesn't make fun Christmas cookies?  If you don't, you should try's a little work, but so fun and good to eat.  And it's a good tradition to start...and you might as well document the moment, right?

And here is Jen's ornament...I am not quite sure how she made it, but I bet I can find out if you want me too!  I love the scalloped edges, but I am also a sucker for fancy borders.

AND you are going to want to check out the blog toward the end of the week.  We will be announcing some news that you just might be interested in.  Stay tuned!
