Gingerbread House Ornament

Earlier this week, I attended a wonderful party at my sideline, June Leyendecker's house. We all brought a "shoe box swap" to share. A shoe box swap is a simple project to share. The theme was "a wrapped homemade goodie."


We spent a couple of hours working through each other's projects. It was so much fun! I ended up with 12 wrapped homemade goodies, each different! 

Here is one created by my sideline Shari Fritz. So pretty! 

My project used last month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I saw this idea on Rosmarie Diehel's blog. So, so cute and easy!! 

 We also did an ornament exchange, white elephant style!


That was REALLY fun and got a little crazy in the end with the all the stealing!
My ornament was a little Gingerbread House.
I started with the smalls Envelope Liner Framelit for the front and back shape. The rest is history... I have no idea how I made it, and am not sure I could recreate it! LOL!

I used the Striped Scalloped Thinlit for the roof. Looks like icing, right? 






And here is one final picture of all the ladies in attendance. It was so much fun and I am so glad to have these ladies in my sideline! And, I am so thankful for June for hosting such a fun gathering during such a crazy time of the year!

Let's Get Away Project Life by Stampin' Up

Hello everybody! I am having so much fun playing with all my new Occasions Catalog goodies. I feel so refreshed when a new catalog comes out. It's like my batteries have been recharged! For those of you that don't know, the Occasions Catalog goes live for everyone January 6, but if you are a Stampin Up demo, you have early access!!

So, I love the colors in the new Let's Get Away Project Life Card and Accessory Collection. It feels so fresh and springy! I used the cards to quickly make a card for this wake's Hand Stamped Sentiment's challenge. That's the beauty of these cards- they all coordinate so well and make creating so easy!


So there is no stamping on this card. None! The sentiments is done with letter stickers from the Accessory collection! 
So. Easy.
I added a doily that isn't from the collection, but everything else is Project Life By Stampin' Up. Isn't it a fun color pallet?

Make sure you check out the other designers at HSS this week! This will be last challenge with HSS sadly. I am just so busy these days, that I am having a very hard time making my designer deadlines. But, I will still play along when I do have time because HSS always has a great challenge!


Thanks for stopping by today! If you'd like to get your hands on the Occasions Catalog NOW, remember, you can if you join Stampin' Up! Check out all the details here.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Seasonally Scattered- LOVE



Hello everyone!! Are you ready for this week? We are getting down to crunch time! I've got so many loose ends to the up before my company arrives early next week!! Eeeek!

This morning, I am sharing a scrapbook page I made (what seems like years ago now!) for last summer's Stampin' Up Convention. It features a set in the current Holiday Catalog called Seasonally Scattered.

I used the "love" stamp to scrapbook my daughter's pictures form last year's Daddy/Daughter dance. 

I embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder on Vellum Cardstock and layered it over White cardstock that had a Real Red Chevron stamped on it. 

Lots of paper layers including Back to Black DSP and Gold Striped Vellum.
This set is only available through January 6th, so make sure you grab it before them!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Monday!

Sophisticated Serif

Hello everybody and Happy Friday!
I've got a quick and simple card for you today!

I fell in love with a stamp set in the upcoming Occasions catalog and knew I had to get it! It's a set specifically designed to make monograms! Monograms are so hot right now (haven't they always been??) So, I made a simple monogram card for next month's Simply Beautiful class. WOuldn't these be easy and fast to make a set of for someone as a gift!! Yes! 

Sophisticated Serifs, Something Lacy, Saharah Sand 7/8" Lace Trim

Did you spot the other new things on this card? A background stamp and new lace! Oh, and Sale A Bration buttons!!!! So fun!!  Another great thing about Sophisticated Serifs is that it is Photopolymer which means you can see where you are stamping! Hooray!!

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow! Hope you have a Fantastic Friday!

Love Is Kindness (Sneak Peek!)

Good morning! You can't believe the last week I've had! Rear Ended on Saturday morning which has caused $7K of damage to my car! (Thank God the driver stopped and had insurance!) Then, three of my family members came down with a fever. On top of that we had a 12 year old sleep over Saturday night!! Plus, I killed a Big Shot! Uhg! 

Then, Momma got really sick! My family got over it with in 2 days, but I couldn't shake it! I've been sick for the last five days and haven't been able to really create this last week. I even had to cancel a class on Sunday!! But, after a miserable night of sleep, I jumped in the car and went to Urgent Care first thing yesterday morning and got a Steroid Shot (OUCH!!)

It worked so well, that last night I was able to create five new things with all my new preorder goodies!!! Can I tell you how hard it is to be sick with your Stampin' Up Occasions and Sale A Bration Preorder box arrives!!!! It was so heavy, I couldn't even lift it to bring it in the house.. LOL!!! 

OK, so here is my favorite so far! 
Forgive the lighting, it's dark and rainy this morning...
Love Is Kindness 
This is a new single stamp called Love Is Kindness. It's so cute! And, I used new Pink Pirouette Blendabilities to color it! I love me some pink!! I think my typewriter may just be Pink Pirouette...

So, stay tuned, lots of Sneak Peeks coming in the weeks leading up to the Occasions and Sale A Bration Catalog live date (January 6.)

And, here is another sneak peek! January's Simply Beautiful Card Class will use lots of Occasions and Sale A Bration goodies!! Can't wait! 

Have a great day!
