Life...it's what we make it. Dwell on the negative or rejoice, your choice reflects your outlook on life and brings others with that same outlook, into your intimate circle. Me, I choose to surround myself in love and joy, just like this pretty little dancer from the Beautiful You Stamp Set (available Jan. 4), kicking up her heels in celebration of life.
This card features my favorite blue-green colors - Mint Macaron and Island Indigo - from the Blossoms and Bliss Designer Series Paper series. And her clothes and hat are colored with Stampin' Up!'s new Watercolor Pencils, softened with a Blender Pen. Some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon ties it all together.
The new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs begin Jan 4, but the Year End Closeouts are still available through Jan 3. Don't miss your last chance to get your favorites from the Holiday catalog while they're on sale, and before they're gone for good - or become overpriced by resellers!

Saturday, my friend and fellow Stamping Bee team mate brought me a batch of super sinful and delicious Christmas cookies. Or was it candy? Either way, it was a super special treat, made even better by the adorable Candy Cane Christmas bag she made! The secret she said, was putting oll the stamps one on block, and then stamping! I love that idea! Not only does it save time, but it ensures perfect symmetry. No unplanned overlap or gaps here!

What could be sweeter than a beautifully decorated gingerbread house at Christmas? This yummy little notecard has very little stamping - only the little banner is stamped! The house is handcut from a piece of Candy Cane Lane designer series paper. Doesn't it look scrumptious? And I love using the precut & scored note cards. They're a great size and it saves so much time having a card base all precut and scored for you. And...there's a full tutorial for you below!
This card features my favorite holiday paper and it's retiring! It will only be available until January 3, or until supplies run out. To see the entire retiring list, click here.

Putting it all Together
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!
