Watch as Santa works with our Night Before Christmas Suite to complete all of his projects. With a memories and more card pack, note cards and envelopes, and more…

Here is one of the cards that I created with the Night Before Christmas Memories & More …

Did you know…

… that yesterday was the Christmas Poem Day? The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement C. Moore (‘Twas the night before Christmas…) was published in 1823. The poem, which has been called “arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American,” is largely responsible for some of the conceptions of Santa Claus from the mid-nineteenth century to today.

I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and thank you for being part of my stamping circle. Life is so much better when your surrounded by friends.

Merry Christmas ~

 

 

Simply Sunday: Reflections of Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you enjoying the Holiday Catalog and all the goodies inside? It’s a fabulous catalog … isn’t it! However, I want to remind you of the beautiful stamp sets that we have in our Annual Catalog … so, today I’m going to share some great cards that were created with the stamp sets you will find in it …

One of my favorites is the Merry Christmas to all (and the coordinating dies) This is perfect if you need to make quick -n- easy cards, and don’t feel bad about that because we are all busy … just pair it with one of our beautiful designer papers.

One this card I simply used the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes … embossed a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and used the die cuts to create an impressive greeting!

My next card highlights the stamp set … just add designer paper!!

Another one of my favorites that you will find in the Annual catalog will not only satisfy your holiday card making needs, but will extend throughout the year … WINTER WOODS STAMP SET:

This beautiful card was created by one of my friends and downline members; Kathy Czerwinski.  This card is simply stamped multiple times … the lighter trees were “stamped off” first before stamping onto her cardfront.

Let’s take that same stamp set and use it for the perfect birthday card …

I used that same stamping technique that Kathy did by stamping off … add some designer paper and you have the perfect quick -n- easy cards.

I have one more from the Winter Woods stamp set …

I love the simplicity of this card … this is another that would work perfectly for a birthday or thinking of you card. Replace the red glimmer paper behind the stamped tree and use your (or their) favorite color.  I embossed the background with the Woodland Embossing Folder … this adds texture to the card.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at what you could create with these amazing stamp sets. I love the Holiday Catalog but our Annual Catalog is one of the best tools you can get your hands on … so many great samples, fun and informative tips and a whole bunch of cools stuff to satisfy our creative habit!

Thanks for hanging out with me on this Sunday,

I hope you have a beautiful day.

Simply Sunday: Designer Paper Craze …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you know that you can create stunning cards that are quick -n- easy to create?  Anyone who has had a glimpse of our beautiful designer series paper does … check these out. Today I have several cards to share with you that will make you smile … because YOU know, you made this card in a snap between dishes and laundry! lol

Here’s a great tip … if you have designer paper sitting around “waiting to played with” … cut it in half (6 inches) and then cut your 6″ x 12″ inch into 4 inch strips so you will have 6 designer papers ready for cardmaking! Or you could you them as a mat or focal point when scrapbooking.  When your making your card you will trim the 6″ length down to 5-1/4 …. this is the perfect size for your card front and you have a little piece to decorate the inside of your card as well.

Our first card showcases the Bird Ballad designer paper, and the second is Magnolia Lane.  The only difference between the Magnolia cards is the greeting was placed in an empty spot on the pattern … Let the designer paper dictate where your greeting will go.

My last card is the cute little dinosaurs again!!

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your Sunday with me! I appreciate that.  Stop back tomorrow as I will be sharing a card I designed from the beautiful “To A Wild Rose” stamp set.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day ~

Leave a Little Sparkle … Guest Stamper: Kathy C

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I met with my Star’s team (my downline) and one of the cards that was shared pulled at my heartstrings because my little grandbaby girls are in love with unicorns, so I just had to share this with you too.

Kathy made this super cute yet easy card with the new “Leave a Little Sparkle” stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  This stamp set is most definitely on my Wish List … It’s so cute and unicorns are Hot, Hot, Hot right now!!

The beautiful unicorn was stamped in Melon Mamba, Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay … even the colors make this card magical, and the touch of black just adds an extra “pop” to the card.  A perfect birthday card, yet this would also be great for Invitations or for a graduation using the “Make Your Dreams Come True” greeting.

The ideas are just rolling into my head … how about you?  Are you loving this stamp set?

Thank you for coming by today … enjoy your weekend!

It’s a Party …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A quick post today to share another fun project using the Dino Days bundle.  Since we’re having so much fun with this cute set, why not throw a party! You can create this simple banner for your celebration …

The Dino Days bundle is perfect for birthday celebrations and we have a cute coordinating card as well.  And as you saw yesterday, with my It’s a Boy … It’s a Girl cards, you could easily surprise everyone with a dinomite gender reveal party!!

I hope you enjoyed the cute projects and were inspired … if so, let me know. I would love to hear if you have another great idea on how to use this fun bundle.

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to visit… Have a great day!

I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little different.

Check out these Cruise Swaps …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a little more from my trip in the form of card samples!! I wish I knew who created these fabulous samples so I could give them credit, because I love their creations!!

I am regretting that I did not get in on the Incentive Trip Swap but I had so much going on with work before I left …. but swaps were posted in our gathering room so I picked out 3 really cute cards.

The first is from one of my favorite sets in the Annual Catalog, the Sailing Home Bundle.  You can find that on page 145.  Don’t have your catalog yet?  Contact me!! I love her layers and the texture she has added to the card. I just love it!

The second of the three I’m sharing today is from the Dino Days Bundle on page 99. This is such a cute suite … I’ll be sharing more with you as my great-grandson is head over heels in love with dinosaurs! Don’t you love they fold of this card …. adds extra fun to the card!

The last sample I want to share with you is too stinkin’ cute …  It was created with the Over the Moon stamp set found on page 32. I think that this would make the perfect little gift at a birthday party (who doesn’t love ) or how about a 4-H project!! Cute hand-out at the County or State Fairs as well.

I hope you enjoyed these cute samples as much as I did when I saw them!!

Thank you for joining me today, I hope yours is a good one.
