Susan Tran:  "As I use last year's  stamp set on 2 year old DSP, with yesteryear ribbon, I can't  help but think of Agnes' profound words, ' I order everything to be used next year'."

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Christmas is officially less than a month away!  Thanksgiving was as late as it could be and it gives all of us less time to prepare for the 25th!  My goodnes ~ my list is long!  It also means it is time to talk about snow ~ the Let It Snow Suite on page 18 through 21 in the Holiday Catalog.  Some of you have already had some snow and, though we don't get it often, I always hope that it will arrive on the next gray day!  This suite features plenty of cute images of snowmen and it includes a perfect snowman punch!  You even get the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies that are perfect for little gifts (and, so easy to make ~ see the video below if you haven't tried one of these little boxes yet).

Christmas Card Class continued...

This card uses the CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SUITE which Stampin' Up! brought out to celebrate the season.  It is a bundle (153944) or a suite (153947) with many beautiful products including Specialty DSP, Roses Dies, Gold Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and two stamp sets (and, a gold bracelet ~ who knew?).  It is a year round set ~ I can see it as a birthday card, thinking of you or a sympathy card.  We embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder and used BLENDS to add color ~ Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Soft Suede (pine cones) and Poppy Parade (berries).  The envelope is gold embossed.  Download the flyer below to get all the information about this fabulous suite!

Light & Peace

The beautiful stamp set, LIGHT & PEACE, is on page 29 in the Holiday Catalog.  This is one of the cards from Saturday's class featuring the stamp set.  We embossed the angel with gold embossing powder and layered her on gold foil.  The DSP is not current.  I knew I wanted paper that had some gold in it and couldn't find anything current so I went to my 'gold drawer' and found this paper from several years ago.  It is good to hold on to paper you love!  The shapes are cut with the STITCHED NESTED LABELS on page 196 in the annual catalog.

Gift Card Holder/Christmastime is Here Suite

We'll be making this GIFT CARD HOLDER in my Christmas Card Class tomorrow morning at ten.  The card uses the Christmastime is Here Suite of products which are just beautiful!  The Designer Series Paper is particularly beautiful as it is highlighted in gold.  And, I cut the rose design on the front of this card out of the DSP!  I didn't stamp it or color it ~ just cut it out with the die that matches and glued it in place!  Anyway, if you are interested in coming to the class on Saturday morning you have to let me know by NOON TODAY!  After that I won't have time to prepare the projects so let me know ~ cell:  757-641-9354.

Wrap it up!

It's almost time and we all want to be ready to wrap it up!  Stampin' Up! is helping us this year with the TOILE TIDINGS GIFT WRAP on page 7 in the Holiday Catalog.  The gift wrap is pretty (Real Red and Very Vanilla) and large enough to wrap a very big gift (24" x 36").  There are two different designs ~ the stripe in the picture below and the Toile design on the gift I wrapped for my friend Laurie.  You get two sheets of each design.  Tie up your packages with the Real Red Ruched Ribbon on the same page ~ so pretty!
