Holiday Cheer
Blogging Friends

Hi Everyone,

It's another wonderful Blogging Friends Blog Hop. This month we are sharing Christmas, Hannukah, and New Years. Grab your sparkling cider and join us. There are many wonderful projects to share. Spread the cheer by sharing.

For my projects this month, I really wanted to share a bit of Christmas. First are some woodsy ornaments or gift tags I made up as gifts for my stamping friends. I used the Mini Treat Bags Thinlit dies to wrap them in. Nature Sings is the perfect stamp set to highlight for these ornaments. The natural wood rings ties in well. I hope you enjoy.

Wink of Stella in gold adds the right amount of 

These were really fun to make. I plan on making many more to give some of my co-workers too. Another project I really loved was using the Large Number Framelit Dies to create a Christmas card to celebrate the "25th".

One of my favorite Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalog is the Merry Music Specialty DSP. It is beautiful. The paper material is thinner that the other DSPs, but is so wonderful! It's so hard to choose which side to showcase. I especially like to use the black sides for stunning effects.

I used the Gold Glimmer Paper from the Annual Catalog and the Large Number Framelits to die-cut the number 25. I just love the sparkle! I used the Layering Circles Framelits for the die-cut circle and the holly from the Carols of Christmas Stamp set.

You can't get enough of that cute cut out deer! I used a combination of products to finish off this project. I used the Card Front Builder Thinlit dies, Pretty Pines Thinlit dies, and the Musical Season's Stamp set from the Annual Catalog.

Wonderful Wednesday Daisy lane Stamp Set

Hi Everyone, I'm so glad you decided to stop in today. It is an exciting time with the anticipation of the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. Many demonstrators went to the On-Stage Event where we all go the new catalog and the Daisy Lane Stamp set. I then received the Birch Background stamp in Prize Patrol. I decided to put both sets together and see what I could create.
For this project, I used the Notecards and Envelopes. I think these make the perfect sized project for something quick and easy.Crumb Cakewas used for the Birch Background Stamp. I stamped off for a lighter background. How cute are the daisies? I stamped them onto the card front with Flirty Flamingo. Then I stamped 2 more on scrap whisper white and punched them out with the large Daisy Punch
In the Daisy Lane Bundle, there is a small daisy punch as well. This set will coordinate with the current Daisy Delight Stamp Set
Before we can get too excited about the new …
# Daisy Lane Winner  Announced
Hi Everyone, Welcome to my blog today. As promised, I am posting to announce a winner of my Daisy Lane Stamp set give-away. There has been a chance to win for a couple of weeks now. You can see my original post for the details. I also recently hosted a swap and would like to share some projects using the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating punch. The card above was created by my friend, Bonnie W. I love her color choices.

One of the things I love about hosting a swap that features products in Stampin' Up! catalogs is that there are so many talented stampers and the projects all are so different from each other. Susan C. combined the Garden Lane DSP for a wonderful look.

This card was created by Sandy H. She has participated in my swaps many times. Its amazing that she fussy cut the daisies on either side of the center one. There is a medium daisy punch that coordinates with the center daisy.

I'm so glad that Jenny G. decided to use the Perennial Esse…
Must Have Colors Monday 2017-2019 In-Colors Retiring

One of the many awesome features of Stampin Up products is our color coordination. Everything matches, it’s like Gar-animals. Remember those clothes when we were kids? The monkey tags went with the monkeys, making it easy to dress your kids in matching clothes. Stampin up is like the Gar-animals of paper crafts lol. Stampin Up has 5 Color Collections: Regals, Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and In Colors.  The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection. It’s broken down into 2 groups of 5. Each year 5 of these 10 colors go away, and we get 5 new colors. It’s a great way to introduce fresh and trendy colors. The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year they will be retired. For example the collection retiring this year is named 2017-2019 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog officially retiring June 3, 2019 (t…
