Guest Artist Janie Dodge!

JANIE 1Janie lives in Newport News and has been stamping with me for years, right Janie?  Yesterday I had two stamp clubs in the studio ~ one in the morning and one in the evening.  It was a busy day and I kept getting texts from Janie.  She sent a picture of the cards she was making in each text. She used the MERRIEST MOMENTS BUNDLE in all her cards (page 43, Holiday Mini Catalog).  Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards
Janie ~ I know YOU had a busy day!!!

256147371_10221859752416772_6365080494019026004_n (2)This gorgeous card relies totally on the designer series paper that you can find on page 37 in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday catalog! The Peaceful Place 12" x 12" specialty DSP (#156394, $15) is the background.  Although it is difficult to see the shine and sparkle of the stars and trees it is definitely there ~ therefore 'specialty' paper!  If you have this paper you'll love making this simple card, if not ~ you can order it online and have it sent directly to you!  Or join Stampin' Up! this month and add it to your STARTER KIT ~ it's the best deal ever!

Great Tidings Bundle

You can find this bundle, stamp set and dies, on page 15 in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  This card was made by Marie Shaughnessy for a Christmas card swap at our STARS team meeting yesterday afternoon.  It is an amazing card and I wanted to share it with you.  Thanks, Marie!


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.
