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 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.

I know it’s early yet but it sure does take the stress away and makes for some fun stamping when I get started sooner.   The Holiday catalog comes out in August and it’s always an exciting time.  My customers should start receiving their personal copy in the mail starting next week.  This year’s has to be my favorite so far.

Another thing that is changing this month is the Christmas sets and accessories from last years will the fully retired so now is the time to get them.

Check out how I did.  I was playing around with my Snowflake Soiree stamp set and decided to make a table centerpiece for the holidays and came up with this great candle ring.

[singlepic id=22 w=320 h=240 float=center]


Stamping on the candle was the tricky part.  Not really.   You actually stamp on tissue paper and then put that over the candle. 

The paper cones were made using the Candlelight Christmas DSP which is by far my favorite this year from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog.  Don’t forget to get yours today.

The ornaments came out just the way I thought they would.  They do take some time to create but well worth it.  So many of you asked for some visual aide so here it is.

Over the past couple of months many of you purchased the kit from me to make these and yes there was enough supplies in your kit to create 5 different ones.  The assembly is the same for all just different layouts.  Here is a sample of others that can be created.
