Here is one of the awesome projects we will be making for class on Tuesday (unless you are doing the Christmas Cards, in which case, check out the sample here)!! My dear stampin Buddy, Mary P made this one for convention swaps! Isn't it awesome!! Check out the inside:
Yay!! How cool is that?! Drop me a line if you would like to join us for class--10am or 7pm!!
I'm sitting here finishing up my projects for my scrap club and I was working on a page with the title, "thankful 2014" and I couldn't help but think I don't take enough time to just be grateful for the day!
So often we are so busy getting from A to B (or in my case getting kid 1 to A, picking up kid 2 from B, figuring out how to feed them, and get them all back home in time to do C!). So I decided to diecut 30 top notes, stamp them with the I'm Thankful For... Stamp and write on one each day.
I figured this was better than the gratitude challenge on FB, because then I wasn't necessarily on FB everyday--you know how that can suck up half an hour without even blinking!!! Plus the whole world doesn't need to see everything I write. I have never really been much of a journal writer, but this is quick and easy--and let's face it, there are only 6 lines on the stamp--and 2 are partial! I'm nothing, if not practical!!
Maybe I'll do something like this for the month of December--maybe I'll have my kids do it! It could be a great family task while eating dinner--I think kids should think about this more often!
Have you ever done anything like this? I think it will be especially cool to go back and look at it in the future!
Leave me a comment on what you like to do!
Happy November all,
I thought today was the perfect day for a beautiful Fall Thanks card. I was inspired to make this by a beautiful sample that was on display at convention back a few months ago. Hope you love it!
My kids just had a Viola recital and they played beautifully and it is so lovely out, but it is COLD! We are talking a good, hard frost! Perfect time to stamp!! I am ready to stamp once I post this pretty card for you all to enjoy! I must say I love fall, but it is just wonderful when it stays just a little warmer!! Luckily, my husband took on trick-or-treating last night! He asked what the plan was and I told him the plan was for him to go out with our son! :) That will teach him to ask!
What is your favorite part of fall?
So I am absolutely in love with the All Year Wreath Stamp set and framelits!! I think the reason is because they are so versitile and wreath's are sooooo popular these days! Most of my neighbors have theose adorable wreaths that have your initial worked into the seasonal design. They are super cute! Plus my best friend who just moved (and had one of those rediculously adorbable wreaths that she made with burlap ribbon--and chevron!!) made "we've moved" cards to send to everyone using this set and they were adorable! I should know, I tied the bows! :)

As we speak, I am getting ready for my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack tomorrow and we are stamping some really great projects including this one here!! I am loving this new Confetti Stars Punch from the Holiday Catalog and this card is really stunning (better in person, as always)! It is super simple to make and uses the washi tape and Endless Wishes, an amazing set from the Holiday Catalog as well! Hope you can join us for some fantastic cards tomorrow (Tuesday, September 21st 10am or pm). Drop me a line to sign up!
I am so in love with our new Little Letters Framelits. They are CRAZY easy to use--especially with the magnetic plate and they are super cute! This card was rediculously simple--washi tape, letters in black and some sequins! ADORABLE, quick and easy--substitute different words:
What else can you think of? Drop me a comment!!
No news from me...which is good news if we are talking babies!! I am done--we have a hard and fast rule in this house: NEVER let them outnumber you!! :)
However, this baby card that I recieved in a swap at convention this year is ADORABLE, isn't it?! I love the colors and how stinking cute the stamps/framelits are! The best part is this is a quick and easy card to make! Switch around colors to create this card specifically for a baby boy or girl. I think this one is pretty neutral!
I am so excited about my Blendabilites class this Thursday!! If you have not signed up for it, please drop me a line if you'd like to join in on the fun! These awesome markers are super awesome and I'd love to show you all the cool stuff you can do with them! This is a super cute swap I revcieved at Convention from my friend, Rachel. I turned it into an awesome card!!
Here, I've used rhinestones and colored them with blendabilities!!! SUPER COOL!!
