Christmas Whimsy Kit!

A little more information about the CHRISTMAS WHIMSY kit that Stampin' Up! introduced this week.  Stampin' Up! kits are priced at either $12 or $19.  What's the difference?  Well, this Christmas kit is an example ~ see below for everything that is included ~ all your craft supplies plus an acrylic block, a stamp set and an ink spot.  The $12 kit will be a craft kit without those items.  This picture shows you everything that is included in the kit to make eight cards ~ four each of 2 designs.  You can find more information about this kit and others by going to the Stampin' Up! website ~ click on 'SHOP' beside the cat on the top right.  If you decide to order use the September Host Code ~ ZJXHDAZX ~ to enter my prize drawing this month.

Stampin' Up!'s Evergreen Elegance

This may be my current favorite BUNDLE in the annual catalog.  The more I see the possibilities and the more I use it the more I like it.  We used it in my 'Katy Christmas Class' this week and I just keep using it.  Then, this video gave me even more ideas ~ particularly with the Evergreen Border Punch that is part of the bundle.


You can find it on page 91 in the annual catty.  This is the stamp set ~

Evergreen-elegance-stamp-set_image (2)And, this is the punch that it is bundled with saving us 10%!  I had to borrow the punch for my class because mine hadn't arrived yet so ~ THANK YOU RUSTY!!!!
Evergreen-border-punch_image (2)The punch is easy to use because of the images extending on either side of the actual punch part.  We will definitely be using this bundle at my upcoming CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS!  Have you signed up yet?  The class is on the 21st and the RSVP date is the 15th.  Let me know if I can save you a stamping spot!


Katy's Christmas Card Class II

IMG_6601I am sorry that the camera won't pick up the sparkle in this card ~ the white snowflake is white glimmer paper which makes it very pretty.  The stamp set is SNOWFLAKE WISHES and the punch for the label is the LOVELY LABELS PICK A PUNCH on page 149 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  Love this picture from Wednesday's class.  Love the concentration!

IMG_6611One more card to show you.  This one is made with the stamp set, EVERGREEN ELEGANCE, from the annual catalog, page 91.  The trees are lovely as they are and we added SHIMMERY CRYSTAL EFFECTS to the tallest tree for some sparkle and embossed the greeting (from HEARTFELT WISHES) in gold.

IMG_6600If you like these cards you might want to sign up for my upcoming Christmas Card Class ~ this month on either Saturday, August 21 at 1 PM, or Tuesday, August 24 at 6 PM.  We'll be making 8 cards ~ 2 each of 4 designs ~ like the class on Wednesday but different cards.  Let me know if you can join us ~ RSVP by Sunday, August 15!  And, Katy, thank you ~ loved having all of you!

Katy's Christmas Card Class I

Yesterday was a day to remember.  Yes, it was certainly an all day rainy day and we needed the rain.  It was also the day that my friend, Katy Bryant, had scheduled to hold a CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS with friends in the Cat/Art Studio.  She has done this for the past several years and it is always fun ~ maybe it was even more fun yesterday because of the dreariness or it could have been just the lovely ladies ~ Anna, Kim, Martha, Michaela, Rori, Sharon, Karen, Maria and, of course, Katy!

IMG_6609It was the first time in a long time that I have had a large class of stampers & non-stampers making eight Christmas cards in a couple of hours.  Such fun!

IMG_6608There were four designs and everyone made two of each design to make a very busy morning!  


Tuesday Project Sheet

Sweet StockingsTo celebrate the Holiday Mini Catalog, and the beginning of SALE-A-BRATION, I created this card last weekend.  Of course, when I showed it to Alan he immediately told me that I would have to snip off one of the kitties paws!!!  Next time.  You can find SWEET STOCKINGS SUITE on page 30 in the catalog ~ have some fun.  I did!
