Getting Ready for Christmas!?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back again today with some more shares of past Holiday retreat stamping. Below I have just a few of our “Gift Tags” that we made last year. We also decorated a cute tin to hold all of their tags!

These were made with the Stocking Stamp set and dies which have been added to our Annual catalog!! I love that, it gives me a chance to show you even more things to do with the items you’ve already purchased.

Our next grouping of stamped goodies comes from our 2015 Holiday Retreat!! Oh what fun these were … might have even been the hit of the retreat … GIFT CARD ENVELOPES!!

I found a great pattern so these were super simple to create, and we just jazzed up the outsides so they would also be a hit from anyone who received them. Just adorable!

You never know what we’ll be making at our retreats, always something new and fun… you’ll have to join us sometime.  I have a new attendee this year, everyone else has been there before … some, several times (One hasn’t missed one yet!) We also have someone from as far away as Oklahoma!!

We have a blast at our stamping retreats, and I can’t wait to get this Holiday Retreat started! This time next week, we’ll be stamping away!

Thanks for joining me here today on my blog. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

This is one bundle from the Holiday Catalog that I don’t have yet so I wanted to be sure to share these projects with you because they are so cute. With just a little stamping, a quick run the the BigShot … add some designer paper and your done.

Check out the bundle here …

I don’t know which is my favorite, but if I had to pick, I think I would pick the box.  I love the color combination and of course … it has stars on it!!

Thanks for the visit, it is truly appreciated.

Have a joyous day!

Stampin’ Supply List …

Tag … You’re It!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! A bit rainy for us on Saturday, but Sunday turned out to be a pretty nice day. I just love Autumn … all that beautiful color before the cold winds begin to blow and the snow arrives.

Just a quick post today  …  I have a cute project for you created by Sarah Sagert / 2014–2015 Artisan Design Team member. I couldn’t resist … we all need tags for the holidays and Sarah’s are the cutest.

She teamed up the Season of Cheer cardstock and Designer paper with the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set. She also used the Scallop Circle Punches and the Deco Labels collection Framelits.

I will be back with a cute tag project of my own after I return from retreat … can’t show you now, it would spoil their surprise!!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals!

Have a marvelous day ~
