Merry December!


Merry Wishes to you for a peaceful & joyful December!

This month I’ve used Everything Eleanor for the background.  I used the “kissing technique”.  I first stamped the image with Crumb Cake, then stamped some trees with Garden Green DIRECTLY ONTO THE STAMP!

Other stamp sets:  Festival of Trees & Oh, What Fun!

July calendar

Time for my July calendar page!

Createwithcheryl July 2015I used one of the prettiest stamp sets I own:  Everything Eleanor.  The colors are Tangerine Tango & Strawberry Slush.  I’ve been spending time in the garden the last few weeks & have some roses that just keep blooming!  And gardenias!  Lucky me to live in Haiku!!  Anne always gives me a bad time for moving out to the country, but I know she’s secretly jealous…

Createwithcheryl July 2015 2Look closely and you can see the dazzling diamond dots on the flowers.  Simply dab around a bit using your 2 way glue pen & sprinkle on Dazzling Diamonds!

Now it’s time to check out the creative calendar pages that Anne & Crystal have come up with for July!



July Calendar Page

I’ve been anxiously waiting for July to get here…Stampin’ Up! Convention will be in Salt Lake City the middle of this month & I’LL BE THERE!July 2014

Here’s my very simple July page from the 2014 calendar.  The swirls are from Everything Eleanor, stamped using Soft Suede and the butterflies are from Papillon Potpourri, using Bermuda Bay & Strawberry Slush.

July 2014 2This reminds me of the pretty bush with purple flowers just outside my window that attracts butterflies. 

Time to fly on over to Anne & Crystal’s blogs to see what they’ve done this month!

Goodbye Ornament Punch!

It’s that time of year when Stampin’ Up! retires many stamps & products to make room for new things.  One of my favorite punches is retiring:  the Ornament Punch!  If you don’t have it, this is the time to purchase it before supplies run out!

I just got this for a friend for her birthday & added these cards to give her ideas…

Ornament 1



Stamp Sets:  Summer Silhouettes, My Friend


Ornament 2

This gives a pretty effect when you open the card.  I’ve cut out the ornament shape & glued a sheet of Designer Series Paper on the back, so when you open the card, you have a pretty design on the top.  Stamp Sets:  Everything Eleanor & Open Sleigh (retiring).

Ornament 3Ornament 4

To make this card, I used a Stamp Set that’s retiring:  Delightful Decorations.


Last, but not least… a pretty Christmas Card!

Ornament 5

Another retiring favorite:  Tags Till Christmas.  LOVE this set!!!  And, I finally cracked open Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set.  You’ll be seeing a lot of that set!

Hope you’re inspired to do some stampin’!!  Hurry & get these before they run out!  CLICK HERE to see everything that’s retiring.


Thanks for looking!  Cheryl
