Sneak Peek & NEW Year End Closeouts!

DSCN6155

Here's a cheerful little card using one of the BRAND NEW stamp sets from the NEW Occasions catalog!!!  This one is called TIME TO CELEBRATE.  The new catty starts Jan 6th - can't hardly contain my excitement!!!!  IT ROCKS!  Also a little sneak peek of the new Sale-A-Bration DSP called BEST YEAR EVER.  Lovin' those bright and cheerful colors!  Sale-A-Bration (SAB) starts on Jan 6th too!!!  With every $50 order (before shipping & handling) you get to choose a free item from the brochure!!!!

I used Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride, Whisper White & Basic Black cardstock; Basic Black & Blushing Bride ink; Time to Celebrate & Work of Art stamp sets; Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine and Black Striped Baker's Twine; Coastal Cabana marker to color the cake platter and flags; little polka dot embossing folder; and the Scalloped Tag Punch & Banner Punch.  I also added a little dazzling diamonds to the cake with a 2-way glue pen...just to add a little BLING!

TO YOUR FAMILY FROM OURS!!!  Hope you had a fabulous Christmas!  We sure did!  We spent the holiday with my mom...had so much fun!  My daughter flew to Denver the day after Christmas to spend a few days with her MAN (as she calls him) in Wyoming.  Here are a few photos to share with you...

Our little family...

Hailey got this huge teddy bear as one of her gifts from "her MAN!"  How adorable!  One of my Stampin' Up! demo friends saw this photo on Facebook and offered to bring that bear home for her..my friend is driving through Cheyenne, WY on a road trip this week...how sweet is that???  Her and Mick are actually road tripping back to us this week so I'm sure Mr. Bear will have his own spot in the car!

Card Buffet Beauty for Saturday!

DSCN6096

 Here's one of the beauties you'll be able to choose from at the card buffet on Saturday!!!

DATE: Saturday, Dec 13

TIME: 9am - 1pm

COST:  $18

You get to choose from 16 different cards.  We'll have THANK YOU cards perfect for your Christmas presents, gift card holders and a variety of other cards and you'll GET A CARD BOX this month if you'd like to give them as a gift!!!  Call or email to let me know you're coming.

I found this card online and had to give it a try. I used Slate Gray for my ink and card layers.  I just tore some typing weight paper and sponged on the sky and layers of snow.  Don't you just love the Serene Silhouettes stamp set - it's so versatile.  I stamped the birds/branch in Slate Gray and then just colored over the birds with a Real Red marker.

  After several diffent mediums, I found that acrylic white paint splattered on the front worked the best.

GREAT Gift Idea & Video!

  DSCN6085

I have a super fun project for you...complete with a video from Stampin' Up! to show you how easy the Gift Box Punch Board is to use!!!

All my Old Fashioned Christmas Stamp Camp attendees in November enjoyed making this project (sniff, sniff...so sorry if you missed it)!!!  What a great gift idea - you get 20 snowflake embellishments in the All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments (137383) for only $6.95 - that's 10 pairs of earrings!!!  I bought earring posts and little jump rings at my local craft store - my GREAT friend Rachael put them together for me one night when she stopped by - it's super easy.  I used Crumb Cake for my box and Whisper White for my insert - with Bermuda Bay ink for the snowflakes from the Endless Wishes stamp set (another favorite).

 I used the box size that measures 3.25 x 3.25 x 1.75 - where you cut your cardstock 8" x 8".  Then I made an insert to hold my earrings - shown below.  I used my pokey tool to poke the holes for my earrings and made sure to put the little rubber backings on the earring post so they would fall out.

Here's  a little fun for you too!!!  Below are two of the tiny squares I'll be swapping at my TEAM CHRISTMAS PARTY tomorrow!!!  We all designed two different squares and will swap them to come home with lots of different little squares.  So what are we going to do with these??? Put several of them together in a frame  to make a SAMPLER to add to our winter decor!!!  I'll be sure to post photos when I get all my little squares!  The bottom layer is 1-3/8" x 1-3/8" if you want to make some of your own.

I used White Christmas and the Snowflake Cards Thinlits Die on this one with All is Calm DSP and Silver & White Glimmer paper.
