2012 Calendar

Hi everyone.  I hope all of you had a very blessed Christmas.  Now it's on to the new year!  I don't like to "waste" time in-between.  So, here is the calendar we made in my calendar class for 2012.  It mainly uses designer paper as the backgrounds, with a few embellishments along the sides.

Along with the new year, comes another new mini catalog (which I can't show you until January 4th).  Very exciting stuff.  I will be able to show you samples, however ... what a tease ... okay, one sneak peak ... the card below shows a sample of the new cutting dies, embossing folder, ribbon, paper, and stamp set.  I packed a lot into one card.

So, if you don't want to miss any of the current mini catalog items, here's one last look.

And, don't forget about the Clearance Rack.  Lots of punches, ribbons, paper ... all kinds of cool stuff and greatly reduced prices.  Hurry, those offers end January 4th.  Simply click on order button or email me and I'll get your items ordered.

Red Glitter Christmas Bird

Hi Stamping Friends.  This card was so easy and fun to make.  The card base is early espresso and whisper white.  The woodgrain is Frostwood Lodge Designer Series paper found in the Holiday Occasions which ends January 3rd.  The pines are from Autumn Days colored with Always Artichoke and Early Espresso markers, and the bird is red glitter paper punched using the bird punch.  The eye is a rhinestone colored black using a Sharpie marker.  Did you know you can color rhinestones and pearls any color with a Sharpie?  You can!  It works best to color them right on the paper of the rhinestones, then remove and place on your project.  Otherwise, you could slip the marker off your pearl or rhinestone and ruin your project.

Have a great day!

Christmas Lodge

Hi Stamping Friends ... I think this is the longest I've ever been away from blogging.  Just had lots going on.  But, I'm back! 

Today's card features the Christmas Lodge stamp set and Frostwood Lodge Designer series paper.  It's a little difficult to see, but the snow on the lodge is nice a glittery with dazzling diamonds.  As always, the card is so much prettier in real life.  The colors are Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  The ribbon is the cherry cobbler quilted ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back much sooner than before.
