Stylish Christmas (and a great layout)

Hi there!  I am back again with another card and video for you!  This is a card we recently made in our Christmas Club class, and it was an easy hit.  In addition to having an easy high-impact bow (with a dangling thingy – very technical here), it has a layout that could easily be adapted for just about any occasion, from a fun birthday card to an elegant wedding card…  And, best of all, it is super easy to mass produce if you are in a holiday rush!

Here is the video with a fun craft hack for adding a hanging item (sequin trim here, but would be great for hanging an ornament from your bows)!

And here is what I have used in this card, just in case you can’t live without something…


A Great Deal for the weekend…

Look no further this weekend for a really good deal… The Stampin’ Up! clearance rack always has something fun on there…  These items make some really fun stocking stuffers for your scrapbooking and cardmaking friends and family!

Here’s what we have on there right now… remember, with the Clearance Rack, when it is gone, it is just gone!!  Shop now!



Walking in the Winter Woods…


So here we are again – it’s October, and we are busily making our Christmas cards around here…  sounds early, right?  Actually it isn’t…  We start making our Christmas cards in our classes in July… we make 12 per month, and by the time Thanksgiving comes around, we have 60 handmade cards ready to drop in the mail!  Too good to be true? nope.  We’ve been doing it that way for years now!

In any case, this month we made a great card with one of the newer stamp sets card Winter Woods…  This set also comes as a bundle, but for this card we only used the stamps.  Should you absolutely NEED these stamps for your collection, (and who could blame you??), then I would recommend going ahead and getting the coordinating framelits in the bundle… then you’d have them for all future projects, AND you’d save 10%!  Beat that!  Who knows, I love this set so much I just may show you a few more ways to use this great set…  I have a video for you , and will attach it here, but I want you to pay close attention to how exactly to make the shimmer spray – it’s easy peasy, and you will LOVE what it does for even the simplest card!


yep… that’s all you need to really “Wow!” ’em!
