Sneak peek from Spring Catalog

I saw these whales in the new Spring Catalog and I just knew I had to have them immediately.  They have a matching Sizzlet Die that die cuts those adorable little whales out for you!   The DSP used is from the Sale A Bration offerings and is called Sycamore Street and the other side is just as beautiful as this side. This side had an ocean feel for me.  I made this card in under 15 minutes, it was so easy with all of the great tools Stampin' Up! has available for us to use.  With everyone around me being sick I decided that Get Whale Soon was a sentiment I am going to be using a lot this winter.

Project for the new year

I mentioned that my daughter and I are going to start a new project for the new year.  It involves scrapbooking something we both have dabbled in but never really got serious about before now.  We are using Stampin' Up! divided page protectors that come in a pack of 10 for $5.95.  We will be taking photos during the week and then trying to scrap what we did each week.  Using the divided page protectors should keep it interesting as they have different options on each page.  I decided to start early with some Instagram photos Kaylee took of our chickens.  It is still a work in progress so stop back to see the finished page.

Christmas in a box

I made my Sister in Law a little present for Christmas. Inside the box was a movie gift card and some Rolos.  I picked Rolos because of the shape and the fact that I DO NOT like Rolos so they would be safe from a late night chocolate craving.  I followed the directions of a very talented stamper Brenda Quintana.  The front uses one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog, Scensational Season, available for just a few more days.  The trees are stamped in Tempting Turquoise and then over stamped with the sentiment from Sassy Salutations in Real Red.  Cute, cute, cute, or at least I think so.

I will be placing an order on Monday December 31st at 10 pm if you want to combine orders to save on S&H.  Just email or call and we can get it all set to go.  Stop back Friday for a sneak peak on a project Kaylee and I are doing in the coming year.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of my crafty friends, I just had to share this photo with all of you.  We helped my Mom put up her tree again this year and this beautiful chain and pink pinecone have adorned her tree for over 50 years.  I made these two wonderful Christmas presents in Kindergarten and they have graced our family tree every year since then.  So as I look out the window of our log home wishing for snow and seeing only misty yucky rain my heart sings with the warm fuzzy feeling that knowing you will be with family for Christmas brings, well at least it does for my family!!!

So Merry Christmas to all and a very stampy New Year too.

My favorite Christmas card this year

I always make several different Christmas cards each year to send out and this year the last one I made turned out to be my favorite.  It has a Crumb Cake base sponged in Whisper White Craft Ink.  Trees are from Scentsational Season which is only available till January 2nd and then the sentiment is one of my all time favorite sets, Sassy Salutations inked in Real Red stamped over the trees.  A little more Whisper White Craft around the trees to look like snow and a spot of DSP behind the panel and you have my favorite quickie Christmas Card of the season.

A Holiday Gift from Stampin' Up!

This is so cute, makes me want to pack up the car and move to Utah.  Seriously, if you ever have the opportunity to attend a Stampin' Up! Event expect this kind of fun.  Ok, maybe not this kind of fun but fun.  These are a great group of people and I am proud to be a small part of this wonderful company.  Anyone who wants to go to Convention in Salt Lake City with me in June 2013 to celebrate SU! Silver Anniversary should sign up with me to become a demo soon!   We are going to have a blast!
Enjoy the clip and have a Merry Christmas!

OK, can not make this work!   Try copy and pasting the link under the photo.

Club Christmas Gifts

I have seen these adorable Paper Snip Holders all over the internet and I just had to make some for my favorite stampin' friends, my club members.  We meet every month and I always look forward to seeing them all.  Not only do we enjoy stampin', we enjoy each others company.  Tomorrow we are meeting for the last time this year, where did the year go?

I used the Petal Cone Die and Candy Cane Fabric and the Big Shot Fabric Adhesive to layer a piece of felt in between 2 layers of fabric.  Die cutting them all out was a breeze with my favorite tool, the Big Shot.  I hope they all enjoy these little gifts as much as I enjoy their company.
