#562 – Mean So Much – December 14, 2018

Taking a break from Christmas cards today.  This is a great time of year to think about what people do mean to you.  🙂  The card above uses the retiring “Mean So Much” stamp set (pg. 46 – Holiday Catalog).  I love the rainbow colors that were used!

This technique is a cinch if you use the Stamparatus!!!

This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions…the Advent calendar.  My mom made this one for me and I treasure it every year.  I remember having a similar one growing up and it brings back great memories.  What is your FAVORITE Christmas tradition?

#561 – Beautiful Baubles Part 2 – December 13, 2018

Beautiful Christmas card that I received from Dot Alcorn yesterday.  She used the retiring “Beautiful Baubles” bundle (pg. 10 – Holiday catalog).  It is just so simply elegant!  Thank you Dot!  🙂

I shared the bundle earlier this month, but I wanted to share again to show off Dot’s card.
Another perk of getting the bundle now, is you get the bundle pricing.  If there is a bundle, accessory, stamp set that is on your wish list, get it this month instead of waiting until they are gone and then you have to hunt them down on Ebay or Craig’s List.  No fun!

Reminder that we do have gift certificates available.  Maybe YOU would like a gift certificate for yourself for the holiday.  Let your friends and family know and give them my contact information.  You can use it for classes or catalog product.  Win-Win!  Plus, Sale-a-Bration starts in January and your shopping dollars will stretch a bit more!!!  Got to love FREE!

Or maybe you are still looking for the perfect gift for a crafty friend?  The beauty of a gift certificate, is that one size fits all!

You also can pick up your prize and card when you come to the retreat on Saturday!

Smiles for the day…

I can relate to this one all too well!  Have a great Thursday!

#559 – His Light – December 11, 2018

Another retiring stamp set, “His Light” (pg. 26 – Holiday Catalog).  Only a few more weeks to order from the Holiday catalog.  During Wednesday Night Live, I will be sharing the retiring items in the catalog, so you don’t miss out on any of your favorites.

I really like the script fonts in this set.
