Valentines at Stamp Along

Do you send Valentines? 
These will be available for you to make at the Stamp Along on Monday. 
The chalkboard look is neat for a stunning Valentine. 
Also, love that new border die! 


This one also uses that die. Here it is used on the edge of the card front. 

 

This one is mainly from my stash! I found, not only the card stock, but the stamp to do the flaps. 
Let's use them! 
If you choose to make this card, please do two of them but count it as one. 
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I would like my stash to diminish in size! 
Thank you! 


When it is open, it looks like this. 
The dies are from the new Occasions Catalog. The same set as the border used above. 
The Cherry Cobbler card stock came out of the scrap file, so if you want to put lots of hearts and arrows in your card, you may! Please! 
This is a square card so, if you are going to mail it, you will need to put it in a rectangle envelope or pay extra postage. 


Hope to see you Monday.

Thank you so much!

If you leave a comment on my blog between now and the Stamp Along you will be in a drawing for a "goodie." It is nice to know that there is someone out there reading what I write. 
Thank you to those that have left comments on the last two posts!

Cool Treats!

The Cool Treats is a fun set to work with because it has so many images and die cuts. 
There are so many ways to combine them. 
It makes me think of summer...I can't imagine eating an ice cream cone outside in this frightful weather!
This one reminds me of the creamsicles we used to have. 
The coordinating dies are just a bit smaller than the stamps. Notice the one in the center. 

 

Here are some of the other dies in the set. 
Don't you just love that tiny little spoon?

New sets! SAB!

SAB
Sale A Bration! 
The best time of the year for stampers!
Every $50 order gets you a free product from the special SAB catalog. 
Lots of fun product in there again this year. 
It seems like the chicks (from looking at Pinterest) is the favorite set. 
This card uses one of them along with the new folder. 
The Hexagons Dynamic Textured embossing folder is another deeply cut one that gives several layers of embossing.  Very much like the Cable Knit one. 


The Dragonflies caught my eye the first time I saw the new catalog. 
This set of dragonflies is one of the die cuts in the bundle. 
Thinking of You cards just seem to be in high demand. How many of these do you send out in a week? A month? They are the kind of which I send the most. This one would be good for anyone for any occasion. 


The Dragonfly set also has a Bumblebee.
I have used some of the SAB free DSP (designer series paper) on this card. 
You don't have to color all the spaces on the paper to make it effective. But, you can if you choose.
I have used the new color pencils that they have in the catalog. There are 13 of them in the box and they are the SU! colors! Yeah! 
Do you like to color? 


Remember, if you come to the Stamp Along on Monday, January 9th, you will get free shipping on your order. I will have the new Occasions catalog there and the SAB one also. If you are one of my customers, there will be one there for you. 
If you can't come but need a catalog, let me know.

Happy Holidays!

I hope that all of you are enjoying your families and friends this Holiday Season. 
We need to make memories every chance we get! 
My dear friend, Linda Juul, left this world to be with the Lord on the 20th of Dec. 
Many of you knew that she was fighting Cancer for the second time.  
I am so glad that we made lots of memories while could go on the trips that we both enjoyed so much. They are all happy memories. I am grateful for every one of them.
Don't miss an opportunity to make memories! 

I am getting ready to work on the next Stamp Along but do have a class ready to go.
This is a Valentine Sampler that some of you had asked me to design. 
It uses some of the new products found in the Occasions catalog that starts on Jan 4, 2017.
I will do most of the prep work for you and you can come to the class and finish it up will me. 
The class will be at Schroeder's on January 25th at 12:30. The cost will be $10.
The frame is not included.
It fits in a 5 X 7" frame that can be found at Hobby Lobby. 


Here are two different styles of frames that are available. 
The first one was $5.24 at the 50% off that is almost always available. 
The second one with the rounded corners is a little more. 
There are also fancier ones that may be more to your liking so I am not including the frame so you can choose the one that you like the best. You can get it before class or wait to pick it out after you have your sampler made so you can take it with you to pick the frame. 



Let me know if you are interested in the class. I will need to know by the Stamp Along so I can order supplies for it.  Thanks. 

I will be placing one more order before the end of the year. If you NEED anything from the Holiday Catalog please email me before the 30th and I will be able to order it for you. 
If you wish to order online, please use the current hostess code

Snowman


The circles are die cuts but the rest is punch art. 
This is for those of us that miss someone at Christmas and need to send a Happy New Year card. 
 I think it is pretty cute and hope you do, too. 




These little cookie cutter stamps are just too cute to not use one more time! This one is my favorite but I will have the reindeer, santa, teddy bear and gingerbread man there also.
You can also choose the greeting to make it Happy New Year, Happy Birthday,
or Merry Christmas!


I needed a retirement card and thought you might need one also.
You could also use this as a New Year or birthday card.
I will have those greetings available also.


Hope to see you Monday!

Christmas Pines

The Christmas Pines set is so nice to work with because of those beautiful pine needles. 
With the three different sizes of dies for the needles, it is easy to get them cut with one turn of the Big Shot. I like that! 
It isn't easy to see on the picture, but the pine cones on this card are layered. They almost feel like pine cones!  


This one uses the same set but only the stamps. No cutting on it at all. 
The top layer is all one. The tag is stamped right on the card stock and the sponging makes it look like it is layered. It is as pretty as the DSP but you can make as much of it as you like or need. 


This one uses just the tree from the Santa's Sleigh set. 
Stamp and cut the middle one first. Then stamp the two on the sides.
Decorate the cut out one and attach it with dimensionals.


Do you have your tree decorated already? 
Do you need other than Christmas cards? I do have a snowman one ready that I hope to show you next time. Leave a comment if you need some other kind of card. I might have time to fill your suggestion. 
Thanks!

December Stamp Along

Do you still need a few more Christmas cards this year? 
There will be several at the Stamp Along next Monday!

This one uses the cute little mice. 
I like mice. You might have to be careful not to send it to someone who doesn't like them. 


Here is a quick easy one that is using some of my stash. 


This is one of the die cuts that I didn't think I needed! 
I saw it done and had to have it! 
There are three choices for you. It is quite versatile. 
It is a shaker card so it will take a little longer time to do but so worth it! 
It makes a birthday cake (or any other kind of cake) and a Christmas tree. 
You can also make it into a bell for Christmas or wedding or anniversary! 
Come and check it out. 
These three will be available at the Stamp Along. 


Thanks for stopping! 
More of the choices tomorrow.
