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
Thank you!

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.

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.
