Yesterday I had a Christmas open house for my customers, and WOW did we have fun!! Not everyone was able to come and we missed them. I love these ladies and I always have such a great time with them. They forever keep me laughing and challenged. I look forward to another great year with these wonderful friends.
Unfortunately I cannot say I created this, but I wanted to show you how three simple wood letters from the craft store can be turned into something so beautiful using Stampin' Up! products. Barbara Benoit who is in my Stampin' Up! group made this for a gift exchange for our holiday get together a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love it and so did everyone else. I do not know who the lucky winner was of this beautiful gift, but I'm sure whoever it was, was truly happy receiving it. Barbara used the Be of Good Cheer designer paper and the Scentsational Season stamp set to decorate the letters.
This card was made using the Flocked Window Sheet from the Candlelight Christmas Speciality designer paper. This window sheet gives this card such an elegant look, and it is so easy to use. I also used the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the oval frame. The oval frame was created using the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I hope you enjoy today's card.
I can't stop making these beautiful ornaments using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Framelets. For this ornament/gift topper I used Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple ink. In the middle is a Vintage Faceted Button and then a Pearl Jewel.
Are these sweet or what? I got this idea from Becky Roberts website and I just couldn't resist making this card. I decided I liked the Very Vanilla back ground using the the embossing folder, and I used a Merry Christmas greeting from the Greeting of the Season stamp set. I used two different punches to make the shoes. The Ornament punch and the 3/4" round punch. I may use this card to send to my customers. I hope they aren't looking.
Is this ever sweet or what?!! I made this cute little box with a plastic cover and filled with To: and From: tags at my up-line Linda Hellers stamping get together last Sunday. The box measures 5" x 3". The tags were made using the Two Tags Bigz die on page 193 of the Stampin' Up! catalog. This would make a cute little gift to give someone.
These are the beautiful ornaments that Stampin' Up! designed for the cover of their Holiday Catalog. These are easy and so fun to make. You will need the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set, and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits, and the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon. If you would like the directions to make these ornaments please contact me and I will supply you with them.
This is such a simple and easy card to make, but looks so nice. Cut 6 strips of designer series paper. In this card I used the Festival of Prints designer paper. Each strip is cut 1/2" wide and the longest strip is 4". Cut all other strips approx. 1/4" less than each other. Punch out a star and add a rhinestone. Easy peasy!
Hello friends, I've missed you. I needed to take a couple months break from blogging for various reasons, but I'm back and so happy to be here again. Can you believe the holiday's are upon us again? I cannot. It seems like just last week we were celebrating the Fourth of July. Maybe that's because the fourth is where I last left off on my blog. HAHA! Isn't the Stampin' Up! Holiday mini catalog FABULOUS! I think I ordered everything in it. I have two new classes coming up on my calendar using lots of the fun stamps and accessories in the new mini catalog. December 2 is the Ornament Keepsakes class and December 8 is the Greetings of the Season class. If you live in the Orlando area and would like to attend either or both classes please do not hesitate to contact me at Jillybeanfl@hotmail.com. Kits are also available.
Posted below are more of the beautiful convention card swaps I received last week from other Stampin' Up! demonstrators. I enjoyed swapping with these ladies so much, and can't wait to go to convention next year to swap again.
I made this beautiful Christmas collage using a sectional collage box from 7 Gyspies, and then I cut out each Christmas design three times creating a 3D effect. This was so much fun making and I'm sure my family will enjoy it during the Christmas Holiday.
