Making it Monday PP#421

Hi Everyone,
I'm finally back to share some wonderful holiday projects. It's that hustle and bustle time of year and getting my Christmas cards done and sent out is top priority. Today I wanted to share my project for the Paper Players Theme Challenge #421. The theme is that "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas".
For my project, I used two of my favorite colors, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade. I used Stampin' Blends to color my flowers. The stamp set is called Blended Seasons. I love the picture in this theme challenge. It reminded me of another snow village I saw.

I thought this display was such a cute idea using a cake stand to transform it into a winter scene. You can catch the flower in the upper right hand corner. That was the inspiration for my project today. 

I hope you have enjoyed your visit. It's nice to chat, so leave a comment or share. You can also see the other cards entered for this challenge at the Paper Play…

Finding Inspiration Thursday
Hi Everyone,
Stampin' Up!'s Online Extravaganza has become a tradition this time of year. While you are starting up your Holiday shopping, be sure to treat yourself to a couple of things you'll love from Stampin' Up!'s online store This year's sale is a little different. Rather than have a short list of products on sale for the week, the sale is divided into three categories - and each 10% off sale runs for 2 days. Each category includes loads of products from Stampin' Up!'s 2018 Annual Catalog - there are SO MANY ways to save big during this Online Extravaganza. Woo hoo! 10% off of an order over $69.50 is, effectively, free shipping. You like free shipping, right? What a great incentive to place an order at (or about) $70 during each two-day sale. Today's post shows the sale categories and how the sale will be broken down. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'm going to take you through each of the 2-day sales and offer …

Something to Stamp Saturday Case This Sketch Challenge #296
Hi Everyone, I love when Saturday comes around and it's the perfect time to join in on another wonderful sketch challenge. My daughter went to college this fall and is now part of the Tri-Delta Chapter. I wanted a fun way to say congratulations and the Happiness Surrounds limited edition stamp set is perfect for this. The CTS sktech challenges are always great to enter. I love the clean and simple focus of this new challenge.
For my project, I used the Notecards & Envelopes which I have been going crazy over. They are the perfect size for a quick hello, birthday, and congratulations. I always suggest these to my customers.


The colors for my project are Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry. These two colors are the perfect pop! I love the pretty die cut flowers too. I used the Snowflake Trinket Thinlit Dies. This is part of the Snowflake Showcase Limited edition products available now until supplies last. These produ…

Finding Inspiration Friday Snow is Glistening
Hi Everyone, Welcome to my Finding Inspiration Friday. I have been so excited about the new Snow is Glistening Stamp set and Snowfall Thinlits as part of the limited edition promotion by Stampin' Up! These products are available November 1st through the end of the month while supplies last. I used Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade for my project. The Tufted Embossing Folder really makes the card stand out. 

This wonderful set comes with many snowflakes and sayings. The trend this year, from what I hear, is that pink is the color of Christmas this year. As you can see, the snowflakes are in a circular or wreath pattern. I did this using the Stamparatus.

I used the largest square in the Layering Squares Framelits to cut our the off set square template. Then the cardstock piece to stamp is the same size as the layering square. I stamped each of the large snowflake at the point of each corner of the square. Then I set the small snowflake between…

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to a new and wonderful Blogging Friends Blog Hop. We are refreshed and beginning a wonderful journey. We are Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over and love to create projects each month with a theme. This month, It's all about the holidays. I love the thought of the chilly days with hot cocoa and a fire while I get to watch maybe a bit of snow falling. 

For my projects today, I wanted to highlight some wonderful new products available beginning today through the month of November while supplies last. They are limited edition Stampin' Up! products. It is called the Snowflake Showcase. This showcase features several new stamping products for your holiday needs and more.



Both of my projects today use the Whisper White Note cards and envelopes. I really like the note cards size for these 2 cards. I wanted to do one full of winter fun and the other in the cool colors of our Pacific Northwest mild winters. Both projects use the upcoming stamp sets and dies.
