Christmas is in the air!

Hello!  Today I had the good fortune of spending the morning with some wonderful ladies at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  They made 15 cards-5 each of 3 designs and took home cards with envelopes and the spool of ribbon featured in today's designs. It was so nice to meet with new and cherished friends to spend time stamping!  The morning started off not so good when I burned my hand while baking brownies.  Then, when I was setting up the table, I dropped it on my toe while trying to baby my burnt fingers. :(  Anyway, like a little kid, I soon forgot about my owee as soon as the stamping started!

Thought I'd share the cards with you:

Here they are one-by-one...The first one is a gatefold card featuring one of Stampin' p's  most popular stamps and Decor Element, Dasher.  It is one of the under $10 stamps on the last page of the Catalog and Idea Book.  Notice the shimmeriness?  (Is that a real word?)  Anyway, I spritzed some of our new Champagne Shimmer paint on after I stamped the Dasher image and it makes the card stock so shimmery.  It must be a real word. :)

Here is the card open.  The salutation is from the stamp set
"Four the Holidays" in the Holiday Mini:

Next is a card inspired by a photo in the Holiday mini.  The Idea Book & Catalog and Mini Catalogs that come out throughout the year are filled with fabulous ideas, samples and supply lists for the projects are available.  If you ever see anything you like and want to know what products were used to make it, I will make sure to get that information to you--just send me an e-mail or give me a call!  I can also help you order anything you may not have and/or teach you how to use something you do have. ;)

Grateful Greetings is the stamp set used for this card. 
"Christmas Greetings" in Chocolate Chip ink is stamped inside .
I really like the variety of holiday greetings in this set.  There are greetings for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and a thankful thoughts stamp which can be used anytime:

The Delightful Decorations Stamp Set and Ornament Punch
coordinate beautifully to make this simple but elegant card
a great card to send to friends and family! 
In this age of  e-mails, twittering, and texting,
everyone will appreciate a hand-stamped creation . :)

Thanks again ladies for cheering me up!
We also had some yummy noodles--Thanks, Joni!
And those "dangerous brownies"! eek!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Stampin'!

Ok, I better go...Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Kitty-fied Sunny Day Album


I just had to share this with you...We attended a Hello Kitty themed baby's 1st birthday party this past Sunday.  Baby's mommy is very, hmmm, how should I politely say it...obsessive-compulsive-over- achieving?  A girl after my own heart!  The invitations were works of art!  Understanding how much effort goes into making projects like what she made really makes me appreciate all the work/time that went into it.  The invitations, favor boxes, centerpieces, decorations, children activities-cupcake and Hello Kitty Cookie decorating, sweet shoppe, goodie bags were all coordinating with a Pink and Brown Hello Kitty Cupcake theme!  It was awesome! I just wanted to share pictures of the card and Hello Kitty-fied Sunny Day album I made for the Birthday Girl. Here's the card:

And here's the album - Front cover and first page:

2nd and 3rd pages:

4th and 5th pages:

6th and 7th pages:

8th and 9th pages:

10th and 11th pages:

12th and 13th pages:

14th and 15th pages:

16th and 17th pages

18th and 19th pages:

And finally, the 20th page:

I used the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' kit and added Hello Kitty die cuts.  I think Hello Kitty looks great with the colors of this kit:  Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion and Old Olive.  DD1 and DD2 are asking, "Where's ours?"...Uh, yes, it's coming! :)  We made this album in a previous class...I am happy to do it again, just let me know!

Thanks for lookin'!  Happy Stampin'!

New Blog Header made with My Digital Studio

Hello There!  I know, second post in one day...I was just so excited to share with you...

How do you like my new blog header?  I made it this morning with Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio!  Oh my goodness...the possibilities are endless!  There is so much to do besides "Scrapbooking" and there are so many great ways to scrapbook Stampin' Up style!  So far, I've made baby cards, thank you cards, post cards, stationery, my blog header...  I'm still working on my calendar and photo book projects.  One of my photobook projects is a book for DD2 to put in a time capsule.  She is in kindergarten and when she is a Senior, they will open it up.  How cool is that?  I made a traditional 6 x 6 album for DD1 just two years ago and with the latest and greatest advances, DD2 will have a digitally scrapbooked version.  I know digital scrapbooking has been around, it just wasn't Stampin' Up style...Now I have all my favorite stamps, colors, designer paper and embellishments in digital version to play with! :)

We are having our 4th Annual Holiday Stamp Camp this Sunday and I will be doing a My Digital Studio demonstration...I can't wait!  I know after they see it, the ladies are going to love it just as much as I do!  Of course, I'll never give up my stamps--this is just another way to play!

I am so excited about My Digital Studio and would be happy to share it with you!  Please contact me if you and your friends would like to see a demonstration and/or set up a fun stamping event!

With Christmas around the corner, I am happy to help with any of your Christmas needs.  Whether it be letting friends/family know about your wish list, helping you with the gift of stamping for someone, design/prep for Christmas cards, favors, giftables...  I will custom wrap any gift ordered through me at no charge.

Happy Stampin'!
