#75 – Add a Little Glitz

This card was created by Sandi Carlson and on display at the Fair Share in Thailand. It uses a greeting from an upcoming NEW set in the Holiday catalog, “Add a Little Glitz” (pg. 21).  It also uses the Coffee Cups framelits die set from pg. 31 of the annual catalog.

I LOVE that it is great for the holiday season. It would be perfect to stick a gift card in from your favorite coffee shop.  I love its simplicity!  I am thinking this would be a great card for our upcoming Stamp Camp in Huntley, 9/9/17.

I’m back from my mini vacation.  We got to visit my oldest daughter in Iowa and my parents and cousin in Missouri.

June always loves seeing her Aunt Janessa.
It isn’t a visit to Missouri without a ride on the golf cart.
June loved her first road trip!

This is why green is my favorite color.  It just smells good!

It was great for my parents to see June again.

We also had dinner out with my cousin, Shelli and her husband.  She was my best friend growing up.  Even if we only see each other once a year, it is always like no time has passed at all.

We played Powerball and won $7.  There is always next time.

#74 – Birthday Delivery

This is a super sweet card that was on display at the Fair Share in Thailand.
It uses the Birthday Memories DSP on pg. 69 of the annual catalog.  The little girl is on the vintage DSP and can be cut out with the coordinating  Birthday Friends framelits dies. (pg. 213).  The greeting “Sweets for My Sweet” is from a new stamp set coming out in the NEW Holiday catalog.  It is called “The Little Things” and it will be found on pg. 44.

If you are on my mailing list, you should receive your NEW Holiday catalog by the end of this month.  You will love the new products and ideas shared!  Even after 21+ years of being a SU demonstrator, I never get tired of seeing a new catalog!

#73 – Gift Box

This little box was shared by my friend and fellow Stampahowlic demonstrator,  Lisa Lange.
Click here to visit Lisa at her blog

This treat box was one of the gifts at my recent craft retreat.  It uses the Fresh Florals DSP (pg. 187) which looks amazing on cards, packaging, scrap-booking…It also uses the In-Color Bitty Bows.  These pre-made bows are perfect for anyone, especially anyone who does not like to tie bows!  Plus they come in such fun colors!  The box also uses an upcoming new stamp set, “Merry Little Labels” and the new “Everyday Label” punch, both on pg. 12 of the Holiday catalog.

Paper-crafting covers so much more than just cards.  There is home decor, packaging, gifts, memory making and card making.  It just feels good to be creative and share what you make with others.  🙂
