Cute Holiday Gift Bag


Here is an adorable Christmas gift bag idea that I recently did with my stamp clubs. I used the scalloped mini lunch  sacks from the Stampin Up holiday mini catalog on pg 13. You get 10 of these in a pack for only $4.95! They are so much nicer than a regular lunch bag you would get from the store. They are thicker, come lined on the bottom and also come with that scalloped top.   For this one, I decorated it using the Deck the Halls designer paper, plus I used the tasteful trim big shot die and the ribbon border punch. The ribbon is the artichoke seam binding ribbon.


Here is a close of the tag and the button. I used a button from the Deck the Halls button collection also found in the Stampin Up holiday mini and then put a little bow in there using linen thread. These are so much fun to make and a really nice way to give someone a nice gift.


Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving today. Spend time with those you love and be thankful for what you have. I am thankful for all of you… wonderful family, and my awesome friends, customers and downline that keep my business blooming year after year. Love you all….

Another Gorgeous French Foliage Card

This gorgeous French Foliage card was actually a birthday card I received last month from my good friend Terri Mongeon. I loved it so much I decided to use it as one of my stamp club cards this month (thanks Terri!). This is definitely one of my favorite stamp sets.  I sure hope it makes it into the big catalog in July. I am so bummed I can't demo with it after next month.  The colors used are espresso, cherry cobbler, and old olive. The back cherry cobbler piece is embossed with the square lattice die. This striped ribbon is so gorgeous. It just makes the cards look so elegant.


Gifts of Christmas with a Little Gold Smooch


This is one of the cards I did in my stamp clubs this month. I stamped the Dove from Gifts of Christmas in night of navy on vanilla cardstock. Then I added a little gold smooch to the center of the flowers. After I took the picture, I decided to also add it to all of the berries too. It came out really pretty. The gold smooch accent adds a great little touch to your cards. The background is our petals a plenty embossing folder found in the back of the Stampin Up catalog. It is one of my favorites. You could also add some of that gold smooch to the center of the embossed flowers to give it an extra pop!


Christmas Cone Ornaments


Here is one of the projects that we will be making in my Christmas Gift ideas stamp camp this weekend. I saw the original cone idea on my friend Kimberly Van Diepen's site about a month ago and loved it but I wanted to do them for Christmas and then I saw my friend Cindee Wilkinson's blog and I had to copy her ideas. I couldn't find any white tulle so I had to use red.  These are super easy to make and Kimberly has a video on her site (the link is in blue) that shows how to make them. I used the candy cane Christmas designer papers.


Stampin Up Owl has many looks

I have seen so many different ways to use the Stampin Up owl punch and this is one of the cutest I think. My friend Debbie brought this card to a recent shoebox swap at my house and it was so adorable I had to share it. I think she got the nurse owl idea from someone else's blog but I have no idea who. If you are the creator, let me know and I will be happy to give you credit. It is amazing to me how many creative ideas people have come up with using this owl punch. I just love it.




Here is a close up of the owl herself. The cross is made from the 3 pack of mini punches and you just snip the edges to make them straight.

November Stamp Camp – Christmas Gift Ideas!


Hey, all of you local Chesapeake / Virginia Beach area stampers……here is what we are making at my November stamp camp this month. Classes are Sunday the 21st at 1pm or 3:30 and Tuesday the 23rd at 10am or 7pm. Cost of the class is $25 and includes all supplies, refreshments and door prizes. We will be making 5 projects in all….a notepad holder made from our DVD cases, a gift card holder, a candy bar,  a gift bag and a cone ornament ( there are 2 designs shown but each class will make 1 of these). I will show more pics of these items (close up) in the next several days.  If you can't make it to class, you can get a bag of the pre-cut and scored supplies to make them at home but you must have the stamps, punches and adhesive to complete them. Or, I can complete all 5 projects for you for $30 total.


Cute Little Gifts….

These cute little treats are so easy to make. You can whip out a ton of them in no time. I used the Candy Wrapper Die (from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini) in the Big Shot to cut them all out for me. Then I just added a little bit of Deck the Halls Designer paper  (also in the holiday mini) and the label on the front (from Winter Post) . I showed both versions of this treat box. You can have it open on both ends or glue one end shut to give it a totally different look. I did these with my stamp clubs last month and my customers loved them.
