New Year; New Product

I have been playing with some of the new product from the Celebrate the Everyday mini that we, as demonstrators, can get during the month previous to the start date. I am anxious to share them with you.

It feels good to put the Christmas cards to rest. I have had those at the Stamp Along since July! 
Now it is time to feel the love in the air and think Valentine's. 
This one will be at the Stamp Along with a tiny variation. 
The printed vellum is in the new mini and is beautiful! It comes in either silver or gold. Fancy foil Designer Vellum page 23 in the mini. 
If you don't have a copy of the Mini, I will have one for you at the Stamp Along.
I have chosen to use the silver with the brushed silver card stock that is still in the catalog. I had to go and check because it has been so long since I used it. 
Do you ever forget about the product that you have? 
The heart on the front (and the one on the inside) are cut with the heart framelits on the Big Shot. 
The one on the front was put in a new embossing folder and through the Big Shot. 
Even though the Strawberry Slush ruffle stretch trim from this year's in-colors has been around since June, this is the first time I have outlined a shape with it. It was easier than I thought. Glue dots really made it easy! 
The little snowman, made with the Envelope Punch board, isn't coming to the Stamp Along, 
It is going to be at Mary's party on the 16th. If you would like to come and make one for yourself, just let Mary or me know and we'll have one cut and ready to go for you. 
With all of the snow and cold that we are having right now I am ready to think about tulips and spring! 
I was so anxious to try the new Fringe scissors on page 31 in the Mini. I made the grass on the tulip card with it. 
Works great! 
This card would be good for almost any occasion. It is a single stamp with an Easter saying attached but using the markers to color the stamp itself eliminates that easily! I used the Blessed Easter Stamp on page 20 in the Mini. I also used the Framed tulips folder on that one.
That one will be at the Stamp Along also. 
I am going to have a personal Sale a Bration at the January Stamp Along. 
If you place an order of $50 (before S&H) I will let you pick a product from many choices that I will have there. There will be retire stamp sets and other products. 
Hope that you can make it. 


  1. I'm with you...ready to say bye bye Christmas cards. I am anxious to see the ruffle border around the heart, it looks so cool!

  2. Hope you will have birthday cards there!

  3. I'm over Christmas anything and even more over winter!
