I really wanted to share this with you yesterday, but my phone died and trapped my photos inside it! After a long evening at the Sprint store, it was determined that they had to reset everything back to factory settings. Now, my phone doesn't look or act like 'my phone'. I just have to keep telling myself it is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
This card features two stamp sets,Wonderful Year (retiring) and Oh, What Fun, as well as a strip of plaid paper from the Warmth and Cheer Designer Paper Stack (which is on sale for only $5). You'll find the full tutorial below.
Tomorrow is my team Christmas party. I'm so excited. I'm making a big pan of baked ziti and my team are bringing all the rest - salads, desserts, drinks. We'll have some fun and games (and prizes!!!), some make-n-takes, a shoebox swap, and a gift exchange. Oh...and prizes! I've got just a little more prep to do, then off to the store to go grocery shopping. I've got a great group of ladies on my team who love stamping and crafting just as much as I do! Plus, I know they're all excited because they can place their pre-orders for the Occasions catalog that comes out in January 3! That's just one of the many perks about becoming a Stamping Bee!

Sometimes, simples best. With just a few pieces and layers, this heartfelt greeting says it all. I've had the trees and the base cut and sitting on my design table for weeks, but was just never able to pull it together. Then, this weekend, I grabbed the Stitched ShapesFramelits and it all came together.
Would you like to make this card? I'll be featuring it at my December 11, Cocoa, Coffee, & Cards class. Or, you can find the directions and supply list below.
Last night, I thought I'd try something new! This features the new Lift Me Up Bundle, which is available in the new Occasions catalog, starting on January 4. It is such a fun bundle to play with! And I love how intricate the balloon die cut is! Add a little sentiment from the Reason for the Season Stamp Set and you're ready to be carried away to a wonderful holiday.
Do you need a new catalog? I'd love to send you one. Just email me to request your copy. (If you have a different demonstrator, please ask them to send you one. ) Want to place an order for the Lift Me Up! bundle before January 4? Join my team and order today!
The Festival of Lights has intrigued me ever since I was a little girl. I love the idea of gathering family and friends together to light the candles to ward off the cold and darkness of the longest nights of the year. And the food! Latkes are one of my favorite foods of all time!
So, when the November Paper Pumpkin kit arrived, I was thrilled to see how well it could work with Hanukkah. It reminded me of when I lived in New Jersey, with the snow falling softly all around. Our Jewish neighbors would gather their friends and family and for eight nights, the driveway was packed with cars of loved ones from near and far. And always, every window of the house was lit up for everyone to find their way in the darkness.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit that comes in the mail each month. It's perfect for beginning crafters as everything you need comes in the kit - ink, exclusive stamp sets, paper, embellishments. The only thing you have to supply will be a bit of glue. Experienced crafters step it up a bit by creating alternative projects, like I have. Paper Pumpkin makes the perfect holiday gift, too. Available in 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions, it's the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The tree is up - not decorated, but up. And a few of my favorite decorations are out. And I sent the Lad back to school a batch of fudge to share with his roommates. I wonder how long it will last???
I've been doing a lot of work the last month getting ready for craft fairs and vendor events. I really missed being in my studio to design and just be creative. As I was cleaning up and making some space for my Occasions and Sale-a-bration preorder (yay!!!) to arrive, I stumbled across the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Kit all tucked away and hiding from view. How could I not have used these yet?
Have you seen these yet? While they're original intent was for photo pocket scrapbooking, they are seriously cute and make the quickest cards and projects. All you need is a little paper, adhesives, and ribbon and you're all ready for the holidays!
There are 71 cards in the card collection and they come in two sizes, 3" x 4", 4" x 6". Use them as is, or trim to fit. The accessory kit has an additional 20 2"x2" cards plus lots of fun goodies like stickers, silver epoxy stars, foil letters, washi tape, and an exclusive stamp set! Best of all...THEY'RE ON SALE!!! That's right, until 11/28, the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Kit are both on sale for 30% off. And, if you use hostess code TNPFMWWQ, all orders of $25 or more receive something "extra" sparkly from me. Orders over $50 will also receive 5 free handmade cards.
The Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza ends tomorrow, 11/28. There's even a flash sale tomorrow! Check back here after midnight tonight to see.
