November Paper Pumpkin has arrived!


My Stocking are here and now to get them ready to hang by the fire......I have an extra kit available to Cash & Carry for $20.00!!  These kits would be great to assemble with you Children or Grand children!

I think I might make a Stocking Banner or use them as Garland and put up a small TREE!


10 Stockings and trimmings in this kit!!!


The Stamp set and a Dapper Denim ink spot.


10 muslin stockings, 1 is turned out, the other 9 will need to be turned and maybe pressed a bit to be nice and flat.  These are SO CUTE!!  Below are the Tags and Trimmings.


And a FACEBOOK LIVE on the 21st at 7PM Central time?   What!!!  I'll be tuning in to watch this and get alternative ideas.  Stampin' Up is sharing the LOVE REAL TIME!!!


And here is the Video showing step by step directions to create the project as pictured.

Christmas Sweaters

I have been wanting to ink up this stamp set and I did receive 1 swap using this stamp set at Onstage.  Thank You Terri Green for the Inspiration!!


Crumb Cake and Real Red make a stunning card!  I decided to COLOR with my Blends and went a bit crazy.......3 more cards in record time!!


I started simple, stamped the Sweater with Momento ink with not too much detail.  I then colored in Pool Party on a Whisper White Oval.  I cut another Oval from Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper.  I did remember to cut a couple of Snowflakes to use on another card........don't waste that glimmer paper!!
I decided the Silver Foil showed up better so saved these Glimmer flakes for another card coming up next week.


I used the 2 Snowflakes from Cheers to the Year and stamped in Pool Party ink on Pool Party card stock.  The Sentiment was stamped in Momento Black and is from Christmas Pines.  This set is in the Big catalog and has some great Sentiments.


Here is the finished card.......I added rhinestones to the Snowflakes and a Silver Foil Snowflake using the Colorful Seasons Framelits.  And some Clear Wink of Stella on the Snowflake on the Sweater!

Hold on to your Hats!!! Get ready for Stamparatus!!!

Yes, it is finally happening.....Stampin' Up has a Stamp Positioning tool!!  And it is AMAZING!!  You have 2 removable plates and you can use stamps on both sides! That's 4 mounted stamps available to make your project!  Red Rubber and Photopolymer, with open ends so your paper can hang out!!


Watch this video and see how the Stamparatus works.
The first Reservation window opens Nov.16th so be ready!!!

Stamparatus video

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.
The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window. (Note: The Stamparatus is not a Cash-and-Carry item.)
  • You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
RESERVATION WINDOWS and AVAILABLE TO SHIP dates

November 16–30, 2017             Approx. February 1, 2018
December 5–30, 2017               Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018                 Approx. April 15, 2018

If you reserve a Stamparatus in either of the first 2 Reservation windows your Stamparatus will count toward a Sale-a-bration item.  All you have to do is add to your order to go over the $50 requirement.  You will receive an email from Stampin' Up that your Stamparatus is available and then you go in and close your order!  I will be sending an email later today with more info and instructions on the Reservation process.  

I am BEYOND excited and hope you are too!!  These will go fast, so get ready for Nov. 16th so you can have this awesome tool delivered in February!!
