Deck the Halls

Thanksgiving is just two days away and that means that it’s almost time to decorate for Christmas.  Since I’m not quite ready to do that, I’m going to Deck the Halls with this card instead. I really like the angle design of this card.  To make the angle, I first measured  up 1 1/2” from… Continue reading Deck the Halls

A Card(inal) for Many Occasions

Don’t you just love a play on words?  I spent this past week-end crafting for almost 16 hours a day.....at a Home for the Hoiidays Retreat in Northern Virginia with about 20 other crafters.  I made 27 cards and 3 fancy box treat holders, all with a holiday theme. Four are Halloween Cards, twenty six… Continue reading A Card(inal) for Many Occasions

The little elves are cut directly from the… Continue reading Merry Little Elves

Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored.  I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves.  But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

Swapping

I had the chance to travel to Orlando November 7-11 to attend Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Live celebrating their 30th Birthday.  Part of the fun was being to be able to “swap” with other demonstrators.  Swapping is when you make a card (or 40 cards in my case) and swap them to receive cards that other… Continue reading Swapping
