Snuggles & Smooches & Snail....

Snuggles and Smooches

This is one of the cards that we created at my Open House on Sunday afternoon.  We used the photopolymer stamp set, Snuggles & Smooches, and a (coming very soon) Happy Heart Embossing Folder.  One of the most fun things about this is the tiny little heart on the Valentine.  The heart is punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper after coloring the paper with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Marker ~ did you know you can do that????  So, we can have Glimmer Paper of ANY color!  Yea!

Click below on the images if you would like to place an online order or just give me a call.  Oh!  And, the Snail......I am having a STICK WITH ME SALE starting December 31 and ending January 2 ~ buy four Snail Adhesives and get one free!

Interesting invitation

Banner card..

I received this invitation recently from Stampin' Up!  It is an invite to a luncheon at Leadership in Orlando at the end of January.  I wanted to show you because it is such an interesting way to use lots of different embossing folders to make banners.  Also, if you haven't tried the 5/8" Satin Ribbon it is so soft and easy to use.  It comes in Gold, Silver, Very Vanilla and Whisper White.  This would be a good design for a New Year's card, what do you think?

Star Kit..............

Those of you who ordered the Many Merry Stars kit from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Supplement must be busy crafting with them or the stars are put together and decorating your home at this very moment!  Send me a picture of what you created with your stars and I'll share your ideas.  Here are some of the ideas from Stampin' Up! ~

How's your mail box?

I hope your mail box is full of Christmas cards AND that it also included the new Occasions Catalog this week.  If not, it will be coming soon!  It is always fun to take a break from preparing for the holidays, have a cup of tea and look at all the new craft products and ideas!  I thought I would give you a sneak peak today at the Crazy about You Bundle in the catalog.  The Bundle includes ~

Crazy about You stamp set, 33 stamps in wood, clear or photopolymer

Hello You Thinlits Dies, 4 dies:  happy, you, hello, thanks

Crazy about you stamp set

We can order from the catalog starting January 6 and, of course, I will have new products at my OPEN HOUSE on December 28 (that's NEXT Sunday)!  Join me any time from one to five!  Thanks for stopping by!

Banner Blessings 2

Stampin' Up! introduced the Banner Blessings stamp set at the end of November.  It is a photopolymer stamp set.  Have you used the photopolymer stamps yet?  Listening to the stampers in my stamp studio lately I can tell you that they are definitely receiving a thumbs up (and that the quality is much higher than other clear stamps on the market).  This would be a good set to try and do let me know what you think.  Print off the project sheet and have fun ~

December Paper Pumpkin

Yesterday afternoon I sat down in the studio with my friends Sandra and Marianna to work on December's Paper Pumpkin box of goodies which had arrived the day before.  It was such fun to craft with friends and the ALL SHOOK UP cards turned out so cute.  There are 9 cards in the box so we each made these three cute shaker cards ~
