I am headed off with my husband for a few days, but I wanted to give you another sneak peek at some of the new products available January 5th in the Occasions Mini Catalog. This new catalog has so many fun new products, but I knew I had to have this Vintage Vogue stamp set when I saw it. The new Sweet Pea paper is fantastic too!
I hope you have a wonderful New Year! Can you believe it is almost 2010?
Your gonna love this project? Do you want to know why? It uses some of the new products that will be available in January in the Occasions Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration promotion. I can't wait for you to see all of the wonderful new stuff that Stampin Up has!
Be sure to check back. I will be putting up another video soon with another preview!
If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment! I am so honored that you watch my videos! Have a wonderful day.
I decided to make a separate video showing just the assembly of the Fancy Favor box.
Today we are off to my in-laws for another Thanksgiving feast. I tried to call it dinner the other day and Elliot, my five year old daughter, informed me that, "It is called a FEAST!"
Here is the next of my soldier cards. I used the Yuletide Christmas stamp set to create this card. I hope you enjoy your day!
I took the second of the cards I made for the soldiers and kicked it up. I love the way it turned out! The length of the video is very deceiving. If I had to do it again, I know I could whip this one out in less than ten minutes.
Is it me, or do my hands look swollen? I need to drink more water and less coffee.
I hope you enjoy the video and I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!
I wasn't expecting to be done with this so soon. It was so funny. Friday, my husband came home from work, and I had moved my crafting into the kitchen. My craft room was such a mess, I couldn't even cut my cardstock in there! I woke up early morning to clean my room back up, so that I could give the kitchen back its rightful purpose.
Here are some tips for mass producing.
1. Design first. Figure out what you are going to make.
2. Cut it out! Cut all the pieces that you need. Get them stacked and organized. Assemble your stamp pads and supplies. I like to use plastic bins to keep the pieces for each project. A Ziploc bag would work just fine too!
3. Stamp it up! Do all the stamping.
4. Stick it out! You are almost there. Now you just have to stick it all together!
5. Break it down! You don't have to do it all in one sitting. Do little bits at time to make it more enjoyable. I did these cards in about 3 different phases over the weekend.
Now, it's up to you. I can show you the "step by step" approach to these cards and "kick it up a notch", or I can do some completely new designs. It's up to you! You can vote here, or at my YouTube channel.
I always enjoy your comments!
I just wanted to check in and tell you to check back tomorrow. I am sure to have something new for you then! I hope you have a wonderful day! For now, I am going to relax, plan my videos and watch some television.
See you tomorrow!
I do have a new video for you. I used the Flower Fancy stamp set from Stampin Up. I've had my eye on this set for quite a while and I finally broke down and purchased it. It's bold, beautiful and versatile.
Enjoy the video! I hope you have a wonderful week! I will be back soon!

Enjoy! I will be back early next week with the first part of a two part video series for you! Have a good weekend. Don't forget, I love to hear your comments!
I really meant to have a video up before now, but the weekend slipped right away from me.
I hope you had a great weekend.
I welcome your comments on my blog or on my You Tube channel. I love to hear what my viewers are thinking.
I love the Wings of Friendship stamp set. I didn't think I would like it as much as I do. I always love when I am pleasantly surprised by a new addition to my happy stamp family.
Enjoy the video! I always like to hear from my readers, so be sure to leave your comments for me!
I will cut off the voting for the Christmas card on Thursday night. If you haven't voted yet, be sure you go to the previous post and leave a comment.
Card number two is the Yuletide Christmas card. This set is from the new Holiday mini catalog.
The video showing how to make the shimmer spray is right here on my blog. Also, if you watch the Friends 24-7 video, you will see me use the shimmer paint directly on a stamp. I really love this product. It's a lot of fun to experiment with!
Have a wonderful day and a great weekend. It's going to be a beautiful one here.
Speaking of jigs, I have one for you. It's the Stamp-A-Majig. It's a great tool. I really wanted to give you a really good look on how to use it.
If you ever have any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me! I love to hear from my readers and viewers!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Now is a great time to start your Christmas cards. Get a head start so you can enjoy the process.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on the cards I make or the products I use. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
This video was previously posted, but had some issues with YouTube. I think the issues have been resolved now.
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this technique really is. You need some rubbing alcohol, Stampin Up's shimmer paint, and a spray bottle. I used the Champagne colored shimmer paint.
Enjoy your day!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
I used the Friends 24-7, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets to create this card. I also used the new shimmer paint in Champagne.
Stampin Up! colors used-Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango and Very Vanilla.
The hardware is from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit.
Enjoy your weekend!
Enjoy! I hope you think it's sweet!
I love to hear your comments. Feel free to leave on here or on my YouTube channel!
I tried to create a younger color scheme than what I normally use. So I used Cameo Coral card stock and some green textured card stock by Core'dinations.
Enjoy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I was able to film several videos this weekend, so I should be back with another video early in the week!
I appreciate your comments on my YouTube channel, or here on my blog!
Feel free to challenge yourself and post a link to your card in the comments section of my blog! I hope you'll play along!
I just love this stamp set from Stampin Up! It's called Everything Nice. I used it on my last post for a birthday card. Love the "Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails" for a little boy. It would also make a great stamp for a scrapbook page.
Have a good weekend!
Enjoy your weekend! I hope to be back early next week with another video. I would love to have your comments on my blog or on my You Tube account.

This card was created using the new Serene Snowflakes stamp set, available in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Do you see all of the silver shimmer? It wasn't done using ink or embossing powder, but the new Shimmer Paint from Stampin Up! in Platinum. This card is perfect for Christmas cards or for all those after Christmas thank you notes!
This set also has a great image that I think can be used to create beautiful medallions.

For this card, I used Stampin Up! Kraft cardstock, Old Olive Designer Paper and some Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon. I also used a healthy portion of the Fine Cosmo Glitter in Pink from Stampin Up!
Enjoy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
If you know me at all, you know that I love coffee! You also have probably figured out that I love stamping! So I figured I would combine some of my favorite things and make a card!
I thought the perfect saying for this card would be "Hey Hot Stuff!" What would you put on it?
"Love you a Latte." "Thanks a Latte."
Also, I think this is the most perfect "bow" that I have ever done, so I just had to include a picture of it! (I am really good at tooting my own horn!)
Stampin Up Colors Used--Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa
Stampin Up Ribbon--Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
Stampin Up Inks--Close to Cocoa and Whisper White
I start the Registered Nursing program on Monday, so life is getting ready to get really crazy. I am just praying that God will give me the strength to keep up with everything!
I hope you enjoy today's video! I made these monogram note cards for my sister-in-law, Sommer, after she endured us being at her house for several days! I was waiting for her to get them in the mail before I posted the video!
Also, since it will be after the release of the new Holiday Mini Catalog, I may just have to incorporate some of the newest products from Stampin Up! into my card designs!
I hope to see you there!
