Weekly Deals for 12/29/2015 – 1/4/2016

Can you believe it? These weekly deals will be ringing out the old and ringing in the new! It is hard to believe that in just a few days that it will be 2016 already! I am posting this from my tablet and the blogger app. I have no idea how it will format and look; but please bear with me! It seems that my graphics driver and windows 10 are not in agreement and my computer will not work. I need to take it in to have someone fix it! Meanwhile, I will try to post as best as I can with my tablet using the app. One of my favorite things about the new year is Sale-a-bration! I am so excited! I have participated in two swaps to prepare for my upcoming open houses! Now I need to plan my make and takes! We will be taking a little road trip so I may not be able to post much the next few days so I am going to take the opportunity now to wish you all a Happy New Year! May it be filled with stamping fun! Thanks for stopping by.

Santa’s Helper is Still Busy!

Santa’s helper has not only been busy, she is working on 3 1/2 hours of sleep! Poor thing almost had a total melt down last night. She discovered that she could not find her ball jar lid files from last year. These were created in My Digital Studio a couple of years ago. Since being a problem solver is a requirement for all of Santa’s helpers; she thought that she would try using My Digital Studio to look for the file instead of mymemories (a software that is similiar to MDS that users were referred to). To her utter dismay, she found that MDS thought that it was a free trial that was ended and would not take her product key. She then proceeded to try a search of her whole computer. Nadda. Nothing. She then went to her blog to see which digital files that she used thinking, “No problem, I’ll just recreat them!” She found the digital files names and did a search to create the new tags for her jar lids. Nadda. Nothing! Do you see where this is going?! So, she frantically looks for the files in her MDS downloads and back ups. Nadda. Not there. Sigh. Gone. Vanished! Thin air! Poof! She has no clue of where, when, why, or how! Huge disappointment! Those where some of her favorite Christmas digital files! She paid good money for those to help out Santa and they are gone; lost. So, what to do but try to create something new in mymemories with what she still has. This is what she came up with. To brighten her mood, she used something new! Do you see it? That pretty glittered Pool Party ribbon is it! Sparkly, shiny, festive, glowing! Santa’s helper has a little smile in her tears! This awesome ribbon will be available in January! Thanks for stopping by!

What’s Going On In Santa’s Stamping Workshop?

I have been in Santa’s Stamping Workshop helping out a bit this week because there are only 9 days until Christmas and he is still not ready! Due to the time shortage I opted to go old school since I did this a couple of years ago and everything non-stamping was in my computer with these colors and I had some stamped tags left-over in my stash. However, we have some current stamps and colors that would look just as gorgeous if you are so inclined to try your hand at helping Santa make bath teas (just google bath tea and pick your favorite concoction)!

Even though I am helping out to make these lovely little gifts for Christmas, they would also make great little birthday gifts throughout the year!

I think Mint Macaron would be a lovely color choice for the tea tags! (I would just place the rhinestones on a few of theswirls right on the “for you” tag.) To match up the color in your computer here are the RGB codes and HEX:

R(146)G(189)B(168) HEX #92BDA8

To use these codes with Microsoft Word: Highlight the chosen word or text, click on the font color button, choose “more colors” and then choose the “custom” tab and enter the number codes for Red (R), Green (G), & Blue (B), or the HEX #.

For your convenience I’ve included a product list of suggested items to create the tea tags below.  Give fabulous favors this season now by clicking on one of the products below or the Shop Now tab above to be taken to my 24/7 online store! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Other exciting new announced by Stampin’ Up!!!!

The Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item 139673) has been so popular that we are going to do something that we don’t normally do: we’ve decided to bring it back in the 2016 annual catalog! It will be available with the catalog sneak peak in May 2016. While bringing an item out of retirement is not something we generally do, we just couldn’t ignore the fact that you sold so many of these embossing folders!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care!

This is my favorite card that I have created with the Festive Framelits bundle! But then, I have only created two! lol! I absolutely love.the.cat! I am pretty sure that she is waiting to pounce on Santa the moment he arrives!

Santa is Warming Up!

I have to confess; I went a little out of my comfort zone in getting this bundle! But I loved the set and framelits, so I decided to give it a go. I did struggle a bit coming up with something that I liked; mostly because I don’t like my cards to be too busy. I was looking for a way to use my “partial” santas from my Home for Christmas designer series paper and decided that putting Santa in the fireplace would be a good way to go! This card did involve some fussy cutting but I love how it turned out!

For your convenience I’ve included a product list of most of the items used to create this card below.  This fun bundle will be retiring soon so get yours now by clicking on one of the products below or the Shop Now tab above to be taken to my 24/7 online store! Thanks so much for stopping by!
