Keep Christmas, Gift & Card

While working on my scrapbook page, I figured I would make a Christmas card and gift. These items use the same card stocks as in the previous post. What I did to the tag on the front of the jar was I cut around the candle & flame with the Hobby Blade, then I put the card stock into my 1 1/4" Circle Punch making sure the top was outside of the cutting area. It made my circle perfect. I continued to layer using my Larger 1 3/8" Circle Punch & Coluzzle. I stamped using my Keep Christmas Stamp Set and on the top of the jar I stamped Merry Christmas from a retired Stampin' Up!® set, Fancy Flexible Phrases from the 06-07 Winter Mini Catalog. I also used my Stampin' Write Markers & Watercolor Wonder Crayons for coloring in my images. Another great tool I used for distressing my card stock is the Cutter Kit. A Christmas Carol & Charles Dickens have always been favorites of mine, and to see this stamp set in the catalog this year was a must have. I can't wait to make more cards to share with you. E-mail me your questions and if you don't have a local demonstrator, I'd be happy to help you with your next project & Stampin' Up!® order.

Keep Christmas 12 X 12 Scrapbook Page

I love stamping and one of the reasons I joined Stampin' UP!® 6+ years ago, is to get 26+ years of marriage and children into a beautiful scrapbook. Well I'm still working on those pages and I may never get them all done, but as you will see on this blog, I get bits and pieces of our life scrapped one page at a time. These pictures take us back to 1986, but the products used are 2007! Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla card stock along with the Keep Christmas, Many Merry Messages and Très Chic stamp sets. I also used Wintergreen DS paper, various punches and accessories, which include the new Circle Rhinestone Fire Brads. Any other questions, feel free to e-mail me.

Just Like You, Ronald McDonald House Set

This is the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set, Just Like You. For each set sold Stampin' Up!® will donate $2.00 to this charity. I used Old Olive, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy and Pumpkin Pie Card stock and Classic Ink Pads. I also embossed the sayings using our Whisper White craft pad and powder. The only embellishment is the button from our Earth Element & Neutral Buttons. Any questions, please e-mail me.

Here are samples of cute 3X3 cards. This was one of the 2 make-n-takes you could do at my last in home workshop. We used the Merry & Bright stamp set from Stampin' Up!s® Holiday Mini Catalog, Winter Green Designer Series Paper, Soft Sky and Always Artichoke card stock. Again we used the re-inkers with blender pens to color them in. I highlighted those snowflakes with our white gel pen. My grand daughter loves Bambi, so this set was a must.

Sassy Stems Card

I had a Stampin' Up! party this past Friday night and this is one of the 5 projects I demonstrated. I used Not Quite Navy, So Safron & Glossy White card stock. I stamped the Paisley background stamp using So Safron Ink on So Safron card stock. I stamped the flower image from Sassy Stems using Versamark® and embossed with silver. The saying is from Holidays & Wishes. I also used our new Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon on the card. I lightly colored in the image using the re inkers and a blender pen.

Winter Bright, Simply Scrappin'® Kit

As you can see from the following post, I'm showing 10 cards and 8, 6x6 scrapbook pages I made using Stampin' Up!'s® Winter Bright Simply Scrappin'® Kit. In making all of these, I used less than 1/2 of the kit. In making the cards, I also used a 1/2 package of our Whisper White® Greeting Cards. I also added a few stamped sayings from various greetings sets found in the Stampin' Up!® catalog. Any questions, feel free to contact me.

6 X 6 Pages, Simply Scrappin'® Winter Bright

Here are 8 scrapbook pages I made with the Winter Bright, Simply Scrappin'® Kit. These kits are great! I can't wait to add my Christmas pictures to these pages. And remember, I still have over 1/2 of the kit left to make more! I plan on making 12 X 12 pages with the rest of the kit.
