12.19.18…. Happy Wednesday, my Stampin’ friends! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m using the last week before Christmas to share just a few more cards. That being said, I created another card with the Winter Woods Bundle. I love the versatility of this bundle! I’m also super excited that the Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating In the Woods Framelits set will be carried over AFTER the 2018 Holiday catalog comes to an end on January 2, 2019. (FYI: After January 2nd, both products will be sold separately, and not as a bundle.) So…..if you happen to miss out on these fabulous products, you’ll still have an opportunity to order them after the holidays are over.

12.18.18….. I don’t know about y’all, but I just love the Hearts Come Home stamp set. It is the sweetest little set (with its tiny houses and trees), and it just really evokes cozy, holiday memories for me. By the way, this set is in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, so it will still be available after the holidays. Yay!

12.18.18….. It’s hard to believe that Christmas Day will be here in just one week! Since past few weeks have just flown by, I decided that I’d try to squeeze in a few more holiday cards while I can. So here you go, my Stampin’ friends…

11.25.18 …..I hope all of you survived Thanksgiving weekend, and were also able to enjoy some time with friends and family. Once I finally had some free time this weekend, I couldn’t wait to start creating some holiday cards and projects. One of my favorite bundles from of the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog is Winter Woods (Winter Woods stamp set + In the Woods Framelits). It’s really versatile and can be used for everyday projects as well. If you don’t have this bundles already, it is defintely one you don’t want to miss out on!

11.11.18…..Even though the hectic holiday season is upon us, it’s still a nice time to let a friend know that you’re thinking of them. I did use some shades of Autumn on this card, but of course you can change it up by using a different color combo and/or a different sentiment.

11.03.18…..Ok my stamping friends, I realize it’s already November, and the Christmas season is upon us (…especially if you been to your local mall lately). However, I’m still trying to soak in those last few of weeks of Fall, and remembering that we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate and to appreciate all of the many blessings I have. So…I just had to make another card with the Country Lane Designer Series Paper. And, yes…if you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with it! The color combinations are absolutely gorgeous….from Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry, to Mint Macaron and Early Espresso, and even Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I love them all!

11.03.18…..The title of this blog post should really be “enjoy the seasons” (…instead of “season”). I know many people have a favorite season, but I just really do love both the Fall and Winter seasons equally! That being said, I wrapped both seasons up in this one little card, and used a mix of seasonal products. The Country Lane Designer Series Paper has an Autumn Harvest feel, while the Winter Woods Bundle obviously has a Winter theme.

10.28.18…..While this is the time of year that we always focus on being thankful, I think we would all agree that the best time of year to be thankful is…..always! That being said, I started this card with the “Thanks” sentiment, which had ended up in a corner of my craft table (along with several bits and pieces that I ended up not using on other projects). I challenged myself to “repurpose” some of those bits and pieces, and pulled them together to create this card. I hope this card inspires you to do the same! Continue reading “always thankful…”
10.27.18…..OK, I realize that Halloween is just four days away. However…..I couldn’t resist squeezing in more Halloween project! I’ve had a ton of fun using the Spooky Treats Bundle. The Spooky Treats stamp set has so many versatile elements, and the Spooky Bats punch coordinates just perfectly with the bats stamp!
