Hope You Had a Wonderful Christmas!!!

I hope You all had a wonderful Christmas!  Christmas seemed to come so early...I guess it seemed that way because we have had such fabulous weather.  When it is 50 degrees, doesn't seem like the end of December.

Here is a photo of the last batch of Christmas cards that I created this year.  I got my inspiration from a card on Splitcoast Stampers (link to SplitcoastStampers is on my sidebar)  I used two of my favorite new stamp sets from the Stampin Up! Holiday Mini Catalog, Christmas Lodge & The Sounding Joy.  The sentiment "Joy" was embossed with the new Pewter Embossing Powder from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch for accent and added a skinny strip of Silver Glimmer Paper for a bit of sparkle.  Finishing touch is Satin Ribbon.

And...just a reminder to everyone...The last day to order from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog is January 3rd!  Also, have you checked out the Clearance Rack lately???  TONS of new items added including many of the Stampin' Up! punches.  The sale punches are the old style, but are current shapes that coordinate with many of the Stampin' Up! stamp sets.  You can shop from the comfort of your home at
SALE ends January 5th!!!

Thanks for visiting.....

Christmas is "in the bag"!

Hello Bloggers!
Wow, time has been flying by!!! I have been having classes since October preparing for Christmas, and it will soon be here. So, it is way past time for me to share what I have been doing. Some of you know, as you have been able to attend my Christmas classes, but for those of you that's pics of projects.
The first two pictures are from a private class I held using the Holiday Stocking die cut to create treat boxes. These adorable little stocking boxes were a big hit! I used designer paper from my "stash", used the snowflake punch, designer label punch, & some waffle paper & real red grosgrain ribbon. We also used the Snow burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The little box is approx. 1 1/2" x 2". Just big enough for some candies, lip balm, or that special little treat! I absolute LOVE the Holiday Stocking die cut & Snow Burst Textured Impressions embossing folder!!! ( Holiday Mini catalog expires Jan. 3rd!!!
Here is another Holiday Stocking treat box with last year's Stampin' Up! designer paper!
I "CASED" this card from the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator web site! It was made with the Stitched Stockings stamp set found in the Holiday Mini catalog! And, wow, skates :) LOVE, LOVE IT!!! I have also seen cards with the Stitched Stockings stamp set making a stick horse, a reindeer, sweater, and baby booties!!! It is an incredibly versitile stamp set, and has a coordinating stocking builder punch.
Here is the group photo from my October card class. Many cards, again, CASED from fellow demonstrators.
Here is the group of November Christmas cards (cased many of them)!
More come soon! Hope you are getting your cards in the mail, and enjoying the Christmas preparations as much as I am!
