Holiday Mix Decor Elements

Holiday Mix Decor Elements


I love this time of year.  Not the cold mind you, but the holiday season is just the best!  Having that said decorating my home for the holidays is so much fun.  Here is what I made using Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Mix Decor Elements, Snowflake punch and stamp, Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Delightful Decorations Set with the ornament punch.  A bit of Sleigh Bell ribbon and a dash of embellishments from the Pretties Kit and viola instant home decor.
For information on my specials, classes and or questions on this project just hollar here.

Hey I know I’ve been out of the loop for some time…mainly due to some severe family health issues.  I’m certainly hoping that is all behind us now.  SO I have a ton of catching up to do.  Just in time actually for the LAST CHANCE LISTS.  They are out already and you can click on them right from my side bar.
Also check out some new projects …. on the right side-bar.  I especially fell in love with the beach scrapbook page.  I can’t wait to catch up on some scrapbooking!

As promised here is what it looked like with the gift bag.  I also used a retired letter chipboard from SU!  Inked it up with craft ink and added some cute Flower fusion with a rhinestone brad.

These are absolutely the easiest embellishments to add!

Another Baby???

Couldn’t resist this card I love it!  Got the 5 petal punch to SHEEP idea Dawn Griffith’s blog…amazing ideas there. IF you haven’t figured out already take the 5-Petal Punch and cut off the lower part of the flower just two petals (leaving 3 petals behind). The 3 petals are the head/ears of the sheep and the 2 petals are the feet.  I used the circle scallop for the sheep’s body and the handy dandy crop-a-dile to make the embossed circles on the bottom of the card. A bit of paper piercing, Bella Rose Designer Paper, white gel pen eyes and some pink grosgrain ribbon (which I pulled apart & got that idea from Gretchen Barron’s blog) and we have a nice baby card!  It could be a baby thank you or even a baby shower invite.  I will be showcasing this card in one of my upcoming classes. Interested?  Email or comment below. However if you are long distance and would like to make this yourself…

 I am packaging materials for you to make 10 of these cards. It will include all the card stock and the ribbon.  All you have to do is punch, stamp, stick and your done!  Need more supplies that’s easy too, just send me an email. 

Thanks for browsing…make it a Great Stamping Day!

Email me HERE and let me know if you’d like to purchase a card set. Have any questions or need a particular item…just hollar.

Oh Me Oh My…they are going?!?


This is always a rough time for me!  I hate to see them go but excited just the same to see the new.  I’m talking about Stampin’ UP!’s retired list of course!! 🙂 

That is right…Stampin’ Up! is retiring a few stamps sets and they will only be available until the end of the year.  After that they’ll be GONE forever.  (dramatic aren’t I?)  If you’d like to peek at the names of the sets please do so here.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me here

Also you’ll notice the cards in the picture were made at my last Holiday Stamp-A-Stack.  I just love our Designer Series paper my favorite was the Dashing  (the card on the left).  Oh and you can never go wrong with a scallop circle punch.  If you’d like directions or a recipe of these cards please email me here. 

I’m hoping to have another class but I’m thinking it’ll be in January…I have bitten off more than I can chew…well at least I can admit that.  New Year’s resolutions?  HMMM….that’s another post.
