2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas

I teased you last week with non-christmas projects from the 2017 Holiday catalog; this week I'm going to show you Christmas finally!  I have had a blast playing with the Christmas stamps.  You know I love making Christmas Cards - preferably ones with a jillion steps that are completely impractical to duplicate!

Here are a few of my favorite GPA cards (Gorgeous Pain in the A$$)!
This is made using Champagne Foil Paper and it's gorgeous!

More Champagne Foil paper and Both Layers of the Night in Bethlehem Thinlits!

I Took this Gold and Whte Striped Gift Bag Up a Notch with Multiple Layers!

This Shy Elf is so Cute when Watercolored with Non-traditional Colors!

I didn't make JUST impossible to duplicate cards!  I made a few cards for class and cards that are perfect for your Christmas cards.

Check out my holiday schedule at for my holiday classes.  Find some free time in there for YOUR private girls' night out and give me a call and we will get you on my schedule.

Private classes are so much fun!  You bring the girlfriends and the wine and I bring the fun!

Joyful Stamping,

Holiday Fun!

The 2017 Holiday Catalog is out and it's amazing!  I've been busy playing with all of the latest stamps.

It's always such fun to see what you can do with new things.

Spooky-licious Halloween Treats

I used the new Halloween DSP as the topper for these treats.  I think the purple dark chocolate kisses are pretty!

These darling white pizza boxes are sized to hold a cookie!

These pizza boxes will be great to have all year long!  You can put a cookie in them, a tiny treat...or 3X3 cards!

Not every stamp set in the Holiday Catalog is just for the holidays.  This wine set was designed by one of the million dollar sales achievers.  She wanted a set all about wine!

There are a couple of Christmas stamps in this set that are just plain funny!

Guess what this is?

A gift card holder!

These last four projects for today are from our Paper Made Prettier Team meeting on September 9.  I think Kay covered Halloween and Fall pretty well here.  I can't wait to see what she has in store for the next meeting!

These cute treats are from our team meeting!

Just wait until you see what I've done with the Christmas Stamps!  I've used all kinds of paper and have really stepped out of the "Christmas mould."

Contact me to schedule your private workshop with your friends and see the fun things we can make together!

Joyful Stamping,

Birthday Memories Suite

Happy, Happy Birthday to You!

Have you ever fallen in love at first sight?  No, not with a boy, with a Stampin' Up! Suite!  Well, I did with the Birthday Memories Suite in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Turn to page 68 in your catalog right now...I'll wait.

Birthday Memories Sutie

Ok, now. look at those two pages.  Aren't they lovely?  First off, this suite consists of Designer Series Paper, a Stamp Set, Framelits, Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments, four colors of ribbon, and a cardstock pack.  Wow!
Honeycomb Balloons

Stitched-Edge Ribbon comes in Pacific Point, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry

Now, turn to page 189 to take a closer look at the DSP.  Check out how many colors are in the DSP...12! yes, 12 colors (plus Whisper White)!  Seriously, this DSP will go with AN*Y*THING!

Now flip back to page 68.  Look at the framelits.  We all know that framelits "frame" stamped images, right?  Making those stamped and colored images easy to cut out...but wait, these framelits are better, do you know why??  They also MATCH THE IMAGES ON THE DSP!  No, really they do!  I know you're going to want to cut out those foxes, girls, cakes, balloons, and poodles, and Stampin' Up! knew you would too so they made it super easy!  They're awesome that way.

Kay, Cindy, Patience, and I had a big ole' BOGO sale on Saturday.  We each picked a suite, stamp set, or theme and made a display showcasing it.  I chose this suite, and might have slightly gone overboard...just a tiny bit.

Display showing cards and gift packaging
Because yes, noise makers!

I know you want this Suite, so let me know before the end of June because I'll throw in the Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments when you order the bundle of the stamp set, framelits, and DSP - item number 145294 - Birthday Delivery Bundle - $62.00 (that's a 10% savings).

Joyful Stamping,
