Hope you enjoyed my card today.  Be sure and check out what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team has picked for their Friday Favorite Accessories from the Holiday Catalog!

Oh What Fun!!!

Guess what I just learned how to do?!!  Picture Collages where I can feature all my favorite “go-together” colors!!

I often have customers ask my how to pick out colors that go together to make a card.  By clicking on the category, COLORS!, on my side bar, you’ll see many beautiful color schemes to choose from.  Ok.  Today you’ll only see one.  But I’m inspired!!!  So I plan to keep adding lots & lots of these!

Please leave me a comment if you like this feature, & I’ll be sure to keep adding more all the time.  Thanks.  I love all your comments & suggestions!  Hope you’re having a great weekend & getting some play time in.

Favorite Holiday Bundle!

You’re in for a treat today!  The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Members are focusing on their favorite bundles from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

The first thing I knew I was ordering was the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Bundle!  This set comes with Santa, a bear, an Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & a Reindeer…and all can be punched out with one punch!  Love it!!

Details:

  • Stamps:  Cookie Cutter Christmas, Oh What Fun
  • Inks:  Crumb Cake & Early Espresso
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake Base (5 1/2 X 11, score at 4 1/4), Real Red (5 3/8 X 2 3/4), Candy Cane Lane DSP (5 3/8 X 2 1/2)
  • Details:  Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Mini Jingle Bells, Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine, Layering Ovals Framelits Dies

After seeing how cute this came out, I decided to decorate a box to go along with it.  To be filled with goodies!  I found these White Gift Boxes (3 X 3 X 3) in the Holiday Catalog that are sturdy & food safe & they have an acetate sleeve that slides on!  That is so cool because you can make these ahead of time & fill them later on when you’re done baking.

Today I’m sharing a gift from a new friend, Connie from CA.  Connie found me on Pinterest and flew all the way to Maui just to buy a few leftover Craft Fair items out of my trunk!  And… to celebrate her & her husband’s 40th anniversary!  She was so sweet to bring me this chocolate gift!  I think she said she’s one of Mary Fish’s downline & she got the idea from her.

And the angel said to them,

“Fear not, for behold, I bring

you good news of great joy

that will be for all the people.

For unto you is born this day

in the city of David a Savior, 

who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2: 10-11

Wishing you a Joyful Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior & King!
