Merry Mojo

Ready to mojo? This week gives you the option of round or square but I was in a square sort of mood. Remember, this is just a sketch to get you going and, as you can see by my card today, it doesn't have to look the same! I really had every intention of using stars and circles but after deciding on the Big on Christmas set went in a different direction.

Stampin' Tips:
  • Line art images like the ones in Big on Christmas are perfect for colouring with Stampin' Up's fabulous markers

  • Add dimension and interest with patterned paper and buttons

  • Making the bottom layer look like a wrapped Christmas gift adds a sweetness to this card.

Very Via!

I'm busy working on craft fair goodies for a show I have this coming Saturday and I am nowhere near organized enough! My stamp room is strewn with Christmas paper, static stricky strip pieces, dimensional backings and's a disaster zone. But oh what fun I'm having, hehe!

Anyways, Josh and I love Starbucks. Random thought is what you're thinking I'm sure but hear me out. We hate instant coffee but Starbucks has these Via sticks that you mix with your hot water and you would NEVER know they are instant, they taste awesome! Now I would love to take credit for this idea but I have to say that it was Josh who said (having seen my tea bag holders), "Hey, you're stampy, you should make a little holder for this!" OMG. This is why I keep him around! So he bought me a box and I put it on my desk...and there it sat for over a week until I decided to get creative. And I did. Look:
Ahhh! It's so adorable it's killing me! After figuring out all the measurements I went a little overboard with the embellishments on this particular one, there are too many to even list! The sparkly embossed snowflakes are just so pretty in real life. The 'Merry Christmas' banner adds dimension to the project and the sponging and tiny pearl give it a really elegant feel. What a perfect little gift to give your coworkers this Christmas, eh? Here are two more that are a little more toned down so you could make lots of them quickly.
These little goodies are so easy to make but I will do a video tutorial for you so that you don't have to figure out all the dimensions on your own. It will post on Monday because I have to spend the remainder of this week getting everything finished up for the craft show. I'll share the things I'm making for the show with you over the next few days.

I Love To Stamp!

Welcome to the weekend! I had a fabulous time yesterday evening stamping away with a great group of ladies. The food was delicious, the cards were beautiful and the company was spectacular! Thank you to everyone who came out, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! If you weren't there, here is a picture of what you missed. Don't worry though, it will happen again....but you have to wait another year! :(

Now for more stamping. I have to tell you, I am sooo into my stamping right now. I mean, I always love it but sometimes it just gets so under my skin that I can't even leave my stampin' studio! That's where I am right now and I have tons of new cards, projects and scrapbook pages to show you.

Here is a card I made several days ago. I dusted off the Vintage Vogue set and quickly remembered why I bought it, it's just so darn purty! Notice the Certainly Celery funky shape that everything is layered onto? No, it's not a new die, it's just a tricked out Top Note! I'm filming a video on how to do this today and it will post on Monday. The video will teach you how to make this shape and also a medallion shape using your Top Note die. If you don't have this die yet then run, don't walk, to my website and get one for yourself because it really is the best die ever! This card has so much dimension to it in real life. I {heart} dimensionals!

Cutting and Creating and Cutting

The 2nd Annual Christmas Card Extravaganza is almost here and I am so excited! This is my favourite class of the year and I go all out for it!
This year my crafters will be making 20 cards in 5 different designs. Here is a sneak peek of 3 of the cards, I will show the other two after the class.

The reason I look forward to this so much is that it's the perfect jump start to getting into the holiday spirit! Food, friends, holiday music, stamping, can it get any better?

I can't believe how close it is getting to Christmas! Skyeler has started reminding me almost everyday that he wants Santa to bring him the "real Woody just like Andy has". Christmas through the eyes of a child is so amazing!

So a question for all of you: When is it okay to put up the Christmas tree? I think it's too early but there are people with theirs up and tons of houses with lights already. What do you think?

50% OFF STARTER KIT! This offer is only available until November 30th...don't miss out! For only $107.50 this is a never before seen offer!
