Christmas Gift Ideas

Hello everyone! This is Java Jen from JAVA JEN CREATIONS. I hope you're having a fantastic week! Mine is full of packing and cleaning out! Can you guess what I'm doing........? That's right! A cross country move from Texas to Ohio! We are relocating back around our family including our 3 precious grand boys! This is exciting, but as some of you may know, moving really stinks!! I'll be so glad when we're finally settled again!  With that said, and because of the fact that ALL of my craft supplies and machines are completely packed, I decided to post some pics of some past gifts I have made for friends and family. I had so much fun making these and they really are quite easy! It is definitely a privilege to be able to share here!   I am also posting this over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY so be sure to visit her site - always so much inspiration there!

                                        This is a FIRST CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT made 
                                         with one sheet of Paper Layerz paper! I will have some 
                                         links at the end of this post to some products and/or 
                                         techniques used.



Here is an ALTERED FRAME ready for a fishing pic!


Here is a FIRST CHRISTMAS MINI ALBUM made using the
back-to-back book binding technique that Heidi Swapp 
uses in a tutorial on My Craft Channel. I used my Creative Memories Cricut cartridge,
Cheerful Seasons.


Now, my favorite projects were my COOKIE SHEET MENU BOARDS!
I used several Cricut cartridges: Country Life, From My Kitchen and Art Philosophy.



I used the Cricut Lite cartridge Chore Chart to make my nephew a 
CHORE CHART! :-)


Another cookie sheet project was for my Mother-in-law - a MINI ALBUM on a
cookie sheet! I used the Cricut Imagine cartridge, Kate's Kitchen.


I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me! :-) Now for the promised links:

[p]For example, the Derek Lam Printed Python Francis Clutch is fresh in color scheme . would be the perfect choice with regard to showing upon instructors day time, [url=http://www.cchanelhandbagssale.co.uk]chanel handbags sale[/url] dad's day time as well as Valentine's Day time . As a fashion [url=http://www.chanelbagsoutlett.co.uk]chanel bags outlet[/url] statement, what these designer handbags really bring into the table is the ability to reflect your own personal style through your choice of handbag . Now I would show you another kind of new product . Leather Handbags really can make the outfit, and turn one boringly plain ensemble into a cohesive [url=http://www.cchanelhandbagssale.co.uk]chanel handbags uk[/url] masterpiece . And with celebrities flaunting their Mulberrys Louis Vuittons and Chloes in our faces on a daily basis, it隆炉s hard to get away from thinking about [url=http://www.chanelbagsoutlett.co.uk]chanel bags online

The fact that Marni is not very popular in our country may result [url=http://www.chanelbagsoutlett.co.uk]chanel bags[/url] from limited exclusive shops . The bag can be 100% custom-made.[/p]
