Sunkissed Christmas

I guess you are getting used to this by now.  Maybe you like all these project sheets that I am posting.  I certainly hope so.  I tried again today but no luck.  So, I think you will like this Christmas card ~ particularly if you are someone who likes to travel South in the Winter or if you have friends who spend the holidays in warm places with palm trees!  Don't forget my last 2022 Christmas Card Class next Monday afternoon at 2 ~

Peace To You

Peace To you is a lovely stamp set on page 41 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I have a project sheet for you and I tried, again, to upload the picture of the card but wasn't able to.  So, I will add the project sheet and, when you click on the link you will see the card and be able to print off the directions.  (No peace to me ~ I am so frustrated with this problem and the fact that it has been going on so long!)

However, I also wanted you to know that my last 2022 Christmas Card Class is scheduled for Monday afternoon, November 14, at 2 PM in the Cat/Art Studio.  I will have three or four designs and you can make six or eight cards/your choice.  This will be one of the cards ~

Decorated with Happiness

Yes, I am feeling a little happier today ~ not sure I am decorated with happiness but things are getting better.  I have heard back from Typepad with an explanation about the problems I am having with loading pictures to my blog.  I still can't but at least I know that they are working on it.  Yea!  So today (this is Friday ~ sorry for the title on yesterday's post ~ I obviously didn't know what day it was.............) I have another PROJECT SHEET for you.  This one uses the DECORATED WITH HAPPINESS BUNDLE on page 27 in the Mini Catalog.  I don't particularly like any of the samples on page 27 but, my friend Lee Conrey (who created this card and this project sheet) has definitely stepped up this bundle.  You will love what she has created!  Download and print out this sheet ~ you won't regret it!

Tuesday Project Sheet

The CHRISTMAS BARN BUNDLE is on page 28 in the current mini catalog.  The images in the stamp set are special to me because my family would always travel from home in Ohio to visit our cousins in Indiana ~ every Thanksgiving and Easter.  I have wonderful childhood memories of those trips and this set brings it all back.  I even remember a sleigh ride (included in the set) in the snow!  Enjoy.

Waste Not, Want Not

In August, one of our projects in stamp clubs was using the TRUE BEAUTY BUNDLE (#158984, page 67AC).  We created the card below with one of the dies in the bundle ~ the crosshatch die.  At one of the clubs there was a little challenge going on because Marion Swaim didn't want to waste the diamond shaped scraps that fell out when the design was cut (most everyone just trashed them thinking there was really no reason to keep them).  Marion said that she would take her scraps home and 'create' something with them.   Last night she returned to stamp club and brought her Christmas creation back with her!!!  I wanted to share it with you and to congratulate Marion on her imagination and creativity!!!  What do you think???




Yeti Again.........

He's back........this YETI is one of the projects for my CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS in the beginning of the month of September.  If you are in one of my stamp clubs you may want to print this out and bring the directions with you to class.  Not in a stamp club?  We would love to have you join us ~ text me for more information ~ 757-641-9354!
