Aren’t these cards just stunning! I love the look of stained glass in combination with the “Illuminated Christmas” from the Holiday Catalog. The O, Holy Night card is my favorite.

The vellum is subtle and uncolored on this card but it still makes a statement.  The beautiful star that draws your eye to the card and then the use of the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies as it highlights the Three Wisemen… I love it!!

The “Hope” Card is beautiful too with it’s colored vellum. This card also used the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies and the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. What’s neat about this card is, you have a beautiful layout now, and you can transform it just by switching color pallets … the blues would be gorgeous too.

Remember … The dies, folders, and designer papers from the Annual Catalog will be on sale. Save 10% on the majority of the products needed to create these cards.

Let me know if you need any help placing your order, or if you just have a question about it.

Thank you for the visit today,

Hope your day is a good one.




Sending Christmas Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

The camera is back and so am I 🙂 Last week I wanted to share a cute gift that I made for my Holiday Retreat attendees, and today I have them for you! I began with the Christmas Traditions Punch Box … a wonderful gift in itself.

If you look at the picture above you will see where I got the inspiration for my attendee gifts. I created 4 Gift Tags and boxed them up in the new Bakers Box found on page 49 of the Occasions catalog.

Each gift box had 3 of the tags tucked inside and the 4th was tied to the front so that everyone got to see what was inside without having to open their boxes.  Only one was not showcased and that was because it had no tie, it’s closure was Velcro …

This cute little tag was created to look like a present!  It actually opens by pulling the top up which is secured with a Velcro tab. I used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper. There are 6 different stamps included in punch box, I couldn’t pick a favorite …

My second of the 4 tags is a folded tag so you can easily write a message to the recipient of the gift …

Because I used the stamp “Heaven and Nature Sing” … I decided to use the “Stars” from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper as well.  I try to limit my supplies when recreating my projects. I added a touch of green with the Sprig Punch. (Sorry this photo got a little fuzzy)

My next tag is a fun and simple tag to create …

I fell in love with the “Making Christmas Bright” bundle and we actually highlighted this bundle in our Friday Night stamp session as well. The colors from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box actually coordinate with the Making Christmas Bright bundle.  Using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies made it easy to highlight the greeting.

The last of the 4 tags used the “Sending Christmas Wishes” greeting …

This little beauty was created in Pool Party and Silver.  I did a waterwash of color on the tag in Pool Party, let it dry, and then heat embossed the greeting in Silver.

The silver cardstock is the Galvanized Metallic Paper and with the use of the Big Shot Embossing Mats the background was created with the Blizzard Thinlits Die.

I enjoyed making these gift tags for my attendees and you could easily replicate them, or make the ones shown below …

These cute tags use the stamps and punch included in the kit, a circle punch and the “Tufted” embossing folder. How cute and simple are these!!

Thank you so much for stopping in to visit me today, I hope you enjoyed these samples. I have listed the ingredients below. You can find more information about each item by clicking on the photo.

JUST ANNOUNCED: You can save 10% on the Punch Box Kits (there is one in the Annual Catalog too!) November 25–26 during our Online Extravaganza.

I’ll have full details tomorrow on our Online Extravaganza. See you then.

Have a fabulous day today ~



Simply Sunday: Sneak Peek Butterflies!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

My apologies for the “patchy” posts … Today I’m giving you a sneak peek into the Occasions catalog that we saw at our Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Orlando!!

I’m hoping to be back to my normal posting as I am on my way to Marshfield (3-1/2 hr drive) to get my camera back!! Won’t let that out of my site again … lol, I’ve got to much to share with you yet.

Let’s start with the “Beautiful Abounds” stamp set and coordinating dies …

For those of you who cannot resist butterflies, you will fall in love with the delicate dies and the beautiful coordinating stamp set … so elegant.

Here is a sweet and simple card that they showed us during her demonstration …

Those cute little wooden butterfly elements will be found in the upcoming Sale-a-bration Catalog … oh yes, you can get these for FREE!

I am so impressed with all the wonderful items in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs … I can’t wait to send them to you!!  Make sure you are on my mailing list. If you’ve purchased from me in the past, you are on my list.

If you are in need of a demonstrator, I’d be honored to help you and send you both the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Let’s take a look at a cute project next …

I am just in love with the new Gingham Designer Paper … don’t you think it’s so cute!! That is in the Occasions Catalog.  And the coordinating ribbon … in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I encourage you to be one of the first to host a Stampin’ Party during Sale-a-bration … I’m working on filling my calendar now, so message me below or email me at:

Now … I also want to share the OnStage highlight video that starts with Shelli (Co-founder) 15 years ago talking about her vision of Stampin’ Up! When you have a goal … dreams come true!

I had a wonderful time at ONSTAGE this November. It’s so exciting to see the upcoming catalogs, to celebrate our stampin’ sisters (and brothers) for their achievements, and best of all … see all my stampin’ friends from all over the country!

We’re having our Spring OnStage this coming April … Will you join me?

Thank you so much for spending part of your Sunday with me, it is greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderful day ~


Christmas Traditions …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ve got some cute tags I’d like to share with you!  I created these tags as a gift for my Holiday Stampin’ Retreat attendee’s.

I used the “Christmas Traditions Punch Box” … this awesome box of goodies would also make the perfect gift itself!

Start with this festive tin filled with crafting goodies, add your favorite paper and adhesives, and begin creating for the season!  Not only can you make cute tags and cards but you (or your gift recipient) will have this beautiful tin as a keepsake. OR you can fill it with cookies!! lol

Box includes:
* Christmas Traditions 6-piece photopolymer stamp set
* 2-7/8″ x 2-11/16″ (7.3 x 6.8 cm) clear stamp block
* Call Me Clover and Real Red Classic Stampin’ Spots
* Christmas Traditions Punch
* 8″ x 8″ x 3″ (20.3 x 20.3 x 7.6 cm) tin

Coordinating colors: Call Me Clover, Real Red, silver

These are the cute stamps that are included in the Christmas Traditions Punch box. Now let me show you the cute tags that I made for my Holiday Stampin’ Retreat attendee’s.

OK … It appears I have left my camera in my sisters car (lives in Marshfield) or I left somewhere between Florida and home!  (SAD FACE) So I’ll share these tags with you instead … they are cute.

These tags are quick -n- easy to make, and could easily be turned into a quick Christmas card.  I promise to share my tags as soon as I find my camera or get another to take photos with.

Thank you so much for joining me today ~

Great News … Great New Product Announcement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed you yesterday, I still feel a bit like I’m in a time warp! lol  Trying to catch up after being gone, and getting everything from Retreat and Convention put away, but I wouldn’t have missed either for the world.

I will be sharing more of each of those later fun events later as I have awesome card samples too!!

Today I’d like to share a few announcements and goodies that are coming your way.  First, our Online Extravaganza is coming next week! Deals start November 23 (Black Friday) through November 28. I will get you more details as they are released to us.

I also have some great news … if you ever had trouble getting your red rubber stamps to stick to the clear blocks, your troubles will soon be over!! Stampin’ Up! have created Cling Stamps …

  • At the OnStage events in November 2018, Stampin’ Up!’s cofounder Shelli Gardner introduced and demonstrated the new red rubber stamping solution: cling stamps.
  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog. Watch for more information about carryover stamp sets in April 2019 with the regularly scheduled communication about catalog transitions, the carryover list, and the retiring products list.
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

I have even more exciting news to share … and I will do so along with some awesome card samples. They have inspired me, and I’m sure they will do the same for you.

So … I’ll be back tomorrow with a cute “gift” that I created for my Retreat Attendee’s.  See you then.

Thank you for stopping by ~
