Valentines Day Card

Valentines Day will be here before we know it!  With the 2014 Occasions Catalog going live in less than a week and Valentines Day just around the corner, this super cute card seemed fitting!  I used some of the new Designer Series Paper for the hearts, and new Bakers Twine.  The "love" banner is actually stamped with and punched with new products that will be available during Sale-a-bration!  So many new things to love in this upcoming catalog!

Spring is almost here...well, sorta
Another favorite of mine from the Occasions Catalog is this GORGEOUS wreath called the Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit.  All supplies (except hot glue) included to create this adorable spring time wreath.  You will be able to order it once the Occasions Catalog goes live on January 3rd.  If you need a catalog please let me know and I will get one right out to you!  If you would like to do this project in a group it is the project we will create at my Crafty Chicks Kit Class on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 from 1 to 3PM.  $20.00 Prepayment made by January 27th, 2014 will get you all the supplies and a fun experience with others!  I can accept payment by cash, check or PayPal (preferred method).  Please let me know if you are interested in joining me, just click the image above to send me an email!

Gold is in!

I often find myself most in-love with clean and simple cards.  Of course over the top cards are beautiful too, but simple cards are gorgeous in their own right!
This card uses only one stamp set and washi tape (both will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog)  I chose to emboss the ampersand with gold embossing powder and let the beauty of this card stand on it's own.  No fancy embellishments or techniques, just some washi tape and heat embossing create a stunning yet simple card perfect for lots of occasions!
As always, if you need a catalog, please don't hesitate to shoot me and email and let me know.
I would love the opportunity to earn your business!

Occasions Catalog

As a demonstrator I have the privilege to pre-order a month ahead of time from upcoming catalogs.
Our next catalog, The Occasions Catalog, doesn't go live until January 3, 2014 but I pre-order some of the amazing goodies this catalog holds and received my order yesterday. 
This catalog is by far the most stunning catalog I have ever personally seen Stampin' Up! put out.  Of course I love everything they do, but this whole catalog is just so fresh and on trend right now.  I absolutely LOVE everything in this catalog, and think you will too! 
For those of you coming to my Stampin' Bingo this Saturday, December 14th you will get a sneek peek at all the gorgeous goodies!  If you can't make it to Bingo, my Occasions Catalog Kick Off is on Saturday, January 4th from 2:30 to 5:30.  I will have lots of samples for you to see, products to touch, future class schedules, plenty of catalogs and a FREE make n' take for you to create! 
New to me customer?  Need a catalog?  Just send me an email and I will be more than happy to get one in the mail to you free of charge! 
I will be posting samples from this stunning catalog periodically until it goes live in January.  I can't say enough about this Catalog, it is absolutely GORGEOUS!  There are a lot of kits and future classes to come from this one!

4 ounce Christmas Cups

Quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen!!!!

Okay....other than  my kids

These adorable little cups are made using 4oz coffee cups!  That's right, 4oz coffee cups!
They are so stinkin' cute!  They come just plain white, but of course that will not do for a paper crafter!  I cut apart one of my cups to design a template to use to trace on Season of Style designer series paper to cover my cup.  The Belly Band is make the same way, just create a template and then trace it onto the paper of your choice and cut it out.
To adhere the DSP to the cup I used a glue stick, although you could also use Tombo Multipurpose Glue or even Sticky Strip.  I like the glue stick because it covers completely, inexpensively and gives me a few moments once I put my paper on to get it 'just right'.  Once you DSP is glued on the cup you can attach your belly band.  You can do this the same way with a glue stick, tombo or Sticky Strip.  I found that my ends popped up a little bit after they had been glued, so I attached two glue dots to the ends to help keep it in place.  For my stamped image I used our Christmas Tagables Photopolymer Stamp Set #134623.  If you haven't given Photopolymer a try yet, this is a great set to try!  So many images and they coordinate so well with our punches.  The photo of these cute little cups below includes just 3 of the 19 stamps included for just $13.95.`

I accented each of my little cups with our Silver Ribbon from the holiday catalog #132137 and filled them with some Hershey kisses. 
The ideas for these cute cups are endless!
Christmas gift giving for coworkers, neighbors, friends, school teachers, mail carriers, your local coffee shop friend, the list goes on and on!  Baby Showers, Wedding Showers, Book Club, Women's Clubs, Church meetings, so many possibilities!
I hope you will give these cute little cups a try, so much fun!
I ordered mine from:
