Naughty or Nice

I am trying to work through all my Christmas cards that I have not yet shared on my blog! This particular one was a make and take at my Grand Annual Open House(s) back in August! This was easy and fun. I love the fresh, modern look of the Santa!

One of the cool things about this Santa die that I have not yet tried, is that his beard will also make fun looking waves (water)! I simply just do not have enough stamp time on my hands!

This bundle is on the year-end close out and if you want to save 25 cents (Hey, every penny counts in my books!) you will want to order the dies and stamp set separate as the stamp set by itself is discounted!

If you like creating cards with a modern, sophisticated look then having this in your craft and stamping room will totally make you happy!

Stampin’ Up! even created a video to share some cute ideas using this bundle. If you haven’t seen it, take a look!

For your convenience, I’ve listed the items I used creating this card below and clicking any of the images will take you to my 24/7 online store where you can check them out along with all of the great year-end closeouts! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Year End Close Outs Are Here!

Wowza! I thought I would be sharing a retired list, but this is even better! If you missed out on some of the good deals during Online Extravaganza, you can still get some good ones!

My favorite deal is the Layering Circle Framelits Dies. Oh my! What a fabulous price for such a crafting staple! This is definitely and item that will only be available while supplies last at this price! (Can you say 50% Off?) What an awesome deal for a tool that will give you perfect circles of all different sizes! Add these to your cart and you will soon be creating beautiful circle layers for your cards, scrapbook pages, bulletin boards (school, church, workplace), school projects, or whatever you need to create!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I do so hope that you find some good deals to add to your crafting fun!

Merry Everything, Happy Always

This fabulous card was created by fellow demonstrator, Becky Tuttle. I love the rustic, traditional, simplicity of this card! The fonts and modern freshness of this sentiment along with the Mini Jingle Bells make it fun.

I am also in love with the Suite Seasons stamp set and really love that it is currently at 25% off. This stamp set has plenty of good company in the 25% off department! Be sure to check them all out as this is the last day that you can get these stamp sets at such fantastic prices!

It’s Time To Deck The Halls!

Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving; already! Last Thanksgiving seems so far away, and yet, it also seems like it was just yesterday!

Once our bellies are full and the kitchen is cleaned up and we can anticipate days of yummy leftovers; I start taking down my Fall decor and break out the Christmas stash, music. and movies because it’s tie to deck the halls!

When I first laid eyes on this set in the Holiday Catalog, it went immediately on my list. Which, for someone who does not enjoy coloring much, is strange: right? However, the mice are adorable and I have found that most of the time – little touches of color work just fine.

This is my very first take of this card. I worked on my touches of color a little more later when I made a few for a swap and I liked my 2nd take better. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo and I don’t have any extras laying around. I just bought another package of this wonderful designer series paper so I can create some more (and other fantastic projects that I have created with this fabulous paper!)

Here is another adorable card, with this Merry Mice stamp set, created by fellow demonstrator, Kendra Richardson. Isn’t it adorable? She used watercolor and did a fantastic job!

On a side note; I took a class on photography using your mobile phone. I think I may be getting better!

This fabulous Merry Mice set is 25% off right now. It’s a steal, really! My card uses another steal off the clearance rack. I wish I had gotten both of these items at these fabulous prices!

There are other fabulous stamp sets at 25% off as well.

Below are some quick links to my favorite items that I used on my card. I recommend adding them to your cart at these bargain prices! They would make great gifts for any card maker or paper crafter in you life. Plus, it never hurts to treat yourself! Thank you so much for stopping by.
