The 3 step stamping in this bundle made me a bit nervous when i started but OMG it is so stinkin’ easy!

I was amazed that I was able to create this card in less than 15 minutes from start to finish and it’s a card that really does say ‘C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E’ like no other, especially when that I used the FREE Celebrate You Thinlit Dies.  They are one of the free items received with a qualifying order during the Sale-a-bration sale with Stampin’ Up!

I tried a couple of different ways to start and decided that the busiest image was the easiest to start with and then i was able to figure out where to do the other two fill in images.  And let me say that by having the framelit to cut out all of those images I popped up on one framelit was a huge time saver.

Hope you enjoy making your Party Hat!

Many of you know that I have hosted  an over the top biannual retreat weekend for a few years now and this past one was no exception.  While the holiday catalog has come and gone the projects made with some of those products has not and its quite possible that you have some of them and are ready to use them so today I’ll share with you a great winter project.

This was just one of the make ‘n takes the guests created at the retreat and was certainly a hit.

If you would like to find out more about upcoming retreats check it out here.

As for creating this sampler I started out with a 12″x12″ sheet of crumb cake cardstock then layer an 11″x11″ sheet of Designer Paper.  All of the squares are made up of a 3″x3″ piece of Old Olive cardstock, then 2 3/4″x2 3/4″ piece of Basic Black and topped of with a piece of whisper white 2 1/2″x 2 1/2″ .   Then is was time to just decorate each square.

Hope you enjoy making your own sampler!

I know it’s a lot of work but I love getting ready for Christmas.   I don’t know what it is about the work but I never tire of it.  Maybe it’s because it is just so peaceful to have around.  Many of Stampin’ Up’s items do seem like they are meant just for cards but I really enjoy the challenge of using them on my scrapbook pages.

 

This two page scrapbook layout was one of the make-n-takes from my Fall Retreat this past September.  The ladies just love the make-n-takes.  If you haven’t been to one you really must check them out.  They are over the top retreats and we always sell out.  You can find more info about them here.

There is nothing more than the Night in Bethlehem Bundle to represent the Christmas season.   I am always reminding my grandchildren that  family, not presents, is the most important reason to celebrate.

Of course the palm trees sealed the deal for me to buy this bundle.  LOL  I do love living in Florida in the winter even though this scene really does make me think of snow.

Do you usually make your Christmas cards with a religious style set or something more holiday traditional?

Not only is the Smitten Mitten Bundle an easy way to stamp bit it’s a stinkin’ cute name too!

Today I was in a bit of hurry to get some scrapbook pages done and that was my go to set.  I’m really liking how simple it is.

Again I made use of some of the Stampin’ Up! Edgelits to create a focal point on my pages.  To make the pegs to hang the mittens on I used the circles from the Cookie Cutter Punch.

The Musical Seasons Bundle was the first set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog that caught my attention.  I don’t know if it’s because I love music, used to play a couple, or could envision making several projects with it but I’m soooo glad I bought it.

This set will make a great staple to my collection to use for all of my music lover friends.

I created this card while on a visit to Florida this fall and only had a limited variety of supplies with me and wasn’t sure about using the Champagne Foil when I normally would have selected Gold for a tuba but now I’m glad that’s all I had as it really makes this card stand out without being gaudy.

How many other music lovers are there out here?

These little guys make the best holiday package yet.  I’ve made lots of holiday packaging in the past but this one is by far the easiest and packs a wild punch.

 

With a quick run thru the Big Shot using the new Snowflake Embossing Folder the top of the box has a great embossed pattern on it.  I added a bit of ribbon, a simple “tree” tag that I colored withe the Stampin’ Blends (Which are the BOMB) and finished it off with one of those sweet Green Sprigs and voila a great Christmas package.

The inside of the Pizza box is wax coated and food safe so you can add a bit of fudge, cookies or other sweet treats.

Have you every tried to use some of the Stampin’ Up! edgelits on a scrapbook page?   Well I do it all the time!

Scrapbook is something that never comes easy for me but I am always happy with the results.

Using the Hearts Come Home Bundle from the 2017 Stampin’Up! Holiday Catalog I was able to create this super cute city scene on my page.  I will say it did take some time to get used to the black and green color combo of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper but it has really started to grow on me.

I just love the simplicity of this stamp set, it is so elegant, not to mention super easy to use.   The 2 step stamping makes it so that color highlighting happens as if by magic.

Black and white are an all time favorite but when I added those bits of color with some holly it just seems even more fun!

You still have time left to order this set and make some awesome cards and it’s not just for Christmas either this is a set you can use all winter long and switch up the greeting to birthday.

At my 4th Annual Winter Wonderland Weekend Retreat last month everyone made some fabulous make ‘n takes and this summer sampler was of course the hit at this retreat.

Summer Sampler

Each guest received the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper in their Goody Bag and they only needed to use one sheet for this make ‘n take so they were able to have lots of extra to play with.

The letter “R” was mounted on a super cute shaker window filled with the Sprinkles Embellishments which were also included in their Goody Bag.  Super fun accent for the sampler.

Don’t you just love the Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up!  I know I do.   When using some of the detailed framelits you can create some amazing things from it.

Glimmer Card

This was one of the cards made in this month’s montly class/club I host.   It has a bit of a twist on the way it is made with part of the inside showing out.

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock and cut off a 2 3/4″ piece (save for later)  to get a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ then scored it at 5 1/2″.  The 2 3/4″ piece that was cut off I turned sideways and attached to the card front using dimensionals along the left half.   The pink pirouette  cardstock behind the glimmer flower was hand cut after I glued the glimmer flower down.

Let’s get started scrapping.   Spring is in the air, well maybe not in Michigan as it’s snowing, but it’s on it’s way so let’s get started with some spring pages.

March 2016 scrapbook page_StampersClub

I used some of my left over Wildflower Fields designer paper that I had gotten for free last month during the annual sale a bration event and this is a great way to use some of the scraps.

All of the small squares along the bottom are 1 -7/8″ x 1- 7/8″ and the black photo mats are 2-1/8″ x 2-1/8″, 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ and 4-1/8″ x 6-1/8″

Some of the Whisper White squares at the bottom are stamped with another free set I received last month and colored with my markers like I did on my Easter card a few days ago.  You can see that technique here.

Cardstock colors are:  Delightful Dijon, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral, Always Artichoke

Marker colors are: Delightful Dijon, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder
