A Christmas Joy

All Is Calm, Wonderful Wreath Framelits

Christmas is only a couple of weeks away.  I can’t believe how fast it came!  The last day to order anything from Stampin’ Up! and get it in time for Christmas is December 15th.  Stampin’ Up! actually says it is December 17th but if you live on the East Coast, it takes a minimum of a full 7 days to receive your order after it ships.  Even the 15th would be cutting it close so I recommend ordering soon if you want anything before Christmas.

I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest.  I didn’t save it (or Pin It) so I can’t remember who made it or even if this was the exact card but just in case it is, let me know and I will give you credit.  The card uses the All Is Calm Designer Series Paper and the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  I cut the “Joy” out of Silver Glimmer Paper.  I love how it sparkles!

A Very Simple Thank You

All Is Calm, Four You

I made this card using a sketch I found online.  If you want (or need) to make a card but can’t figure out where to start, go online and look for card sketches.  It really helps me when I get stuck.   I thought it was a simple, yet fun sketch because it was a little off center (like me!).  I used Silver Glimmer Paper as an accent.  It is hard to see with a photograph but the All Is Calm Designer Series Paper in Lost Lagoon is very pretty with the sparkly silver paper.  The sentiments are from the stamp set called Four You and A Dozen Thoughts.  Both of these sets are in the Annual Catalog.

Don’t forget the Online Extravaganza is still going on!  To see what is on sales click HERE!

Cheerful Tags

Cheerful Tags

I made this card using a card sketch I found on Pinterest.  I probably should start saving these challenges so I could show you what the original sketch was.  In any case, it used Designer Series Paper on a diagonal which I thought was a cute idea.  I used the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  I love the colors in this paper.  They are so soft yet wintery.

The stamp set I used is also from the Holiday Catalog.  It is a Photopolymer stamp set called Cheerful Tags.  It matches the Note Tag Punch which is also in the Holiday Catalog.  These will come in very handy with the Christmas Season coming up.  You can use this set to tag all your packages.  The snow flakes on the tag are from the Photopolymer stamp set called Holiday Home.

White Christmas For Freshly Made Sketches

White Christmas, Sneak Peek

Here is a bunch of sneak peeks from the Holiday Catalog!  I used the card layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is this week’s sketch:


I used a new Photopolymer Stamp Set called White Christmas that will be in the Holiday Catalog that comes out on August 28th.  The Designer Series Paper is also in the Holiday Catalog and it is called All Is Calm.  The paper is absolutely beautiful and uses the colors Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky.  You are going to love it.  Did you see the silver sequins?  They are also in the Holiday Catalog.  I think this catalog is the best one ever!  It has awesome products in it and offers a little bit of everything for everyone’s taste.
