This is one one of my favorite stamp sets, Christmas Magic, that I used for these two pages.  I also used a new product from the 2017 Occasions catalog.  Can you guess what it is?  Were you thinking, Watercolor Pencils?  I love, love, love, love them.  Did I say I love them!

Here is a picture of them close up.

You are going to love the Watercolor Pencils too!  You can use them as is, with Blender Pens or Aqua Painters.  They are so much fun!  I can't wait to play with my new products this week.  I am off on vacation until January 2nd so I plan on spending some time in my stampin studio.  I am so excited!

Here are some other pictures of the planner that I did for December.

Can I share a little secret with you?  Did you noticed that there is only part of the week in the picture above?  Well, I was trying something new, and guess what?  It didn't work!   LOL  I am not going to show you how bad it turned out.  I look at it and say to myself, "What were you trying to do?"  It just isn't pretty.  

Emily loves to decorate her planner too, so we are going to work on ours together while she is home.  I know she will have great ideas as she is a wonderful artist.  Emily also has beautiful handwriting, so I may have to have her write on some of my pages.  

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  Were you on Santa's nice list?  I sure was!  My family definitely spoiled me!  I have to say I spoiled them too.

Happy Stampin!

Joyful Nativity

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Joyful Nativity stamp set #141565, Silver Foil Sheets #132178, Silver Embossing Powder #109131, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, 3 D projects and scrapbooking ideas go to stampinscrapper.com

 

Merry Christmas Eve!!!!!  I thought this was the perfect card for this wonderful, joyful, loving, beautiful weekend!  What a better way to say Merry Christmas than a nativity scene.  

This is another card that I got inspiration for from the annual catalog. Actually it is the same inspiration card as I used for my post on Wednesday, December 21st.  Click ORNAMENT CHRISTMAS CARD to see my other post/card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Night of Navy Card Stock #100867

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 /14"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • 3 1/4"  x 4 1/2"

Silver Foil Sheets #132178

  • 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

On this card all of it is embossed, which is beautiful, but you will need to do it in steps.  I stamped and embossed the JOY and the sentiment first.   Then I stamped and embossed the star and the nativity scene.  This makes it easier to line up the nativity inside the "O" of JOY.  I used the Embossing Buddy first before any embossing to make sure I didn't have any static on my Whisper White Paper.  If you do have static, little pieces of embossing powder will cling where you don't want them to.

I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas weekend!  We are going to enjoy spending time together, going to Christmas Eve service, make more cookies, play games, watch movies, eat and sleep.  It can't get any better than this! 

Happy Stampin!

The products I used on them have retired, but you could use any paper and stamp sets that you have on hand.  

I am officially on vacation until January 2nd!!  We are going to have a girls day today with getting our nails and toes nice and pretty for Christmas and then lunch.  I love spending time with my daughters, Emily and Erica!

Ornament Christmas Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Joyful Nativity 141565Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141831, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897, Silver Embossing Powder #109131, 1/8" Silver Ribbon #132137, Delicate Ornament Thinlits #139667, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more ideas for cards, scrapbooking, 3 D projects and gifts go to stampinscrapper.com

This is such a stunning card and so beautiful, I just wish I could get that through on the picture.  We made this card at one of my Christmas Card classes.  It was one of the favorites.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Card Stock #140272

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Night of Navy Card Stock #100867

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3" x 3"

When you do embossing you will want to use your Embossing Buddy to get all the static off your paper.  If you don't, you will get little bits of embossing powder where you don't want them.  After embossing I cut out the design with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits.  I used a sponge and Night of Navy ink for around the edges.  

On the Night of Navy card stock I embossed it with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder.  I took the Wink of Stella - Clear and put it on the raised part.  I popped up the ornament with dimensionals and added silver ribbon and a bow.  

Life has been a little crazy for me this last couple of days.  On Monday morning I got really sharp pains in my back that lasted about an hour and then passed.  It happened again later that night, but this time for 3 hours.  The pain was so bad, it was worst than having a ten pound baby with no pain killers.  I went to the doctor yesterday and I have a kidney infection and a kidney stone.  I am so thankful for medicine.  

On top of that I have a bad cold and cough.  Really, it is the week before Christmas.  It never fails, I always get sick right before Christmas.  

I will try to post more this week, I had some great things I wanted to share with you, but if you don't see a post that is why.  

Thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Stampin!

My final Merry Christmas Monday project.  I had a lot of fun designing projects to share with you for this beautiful holiday season.  This week I made a Gift Card Holder using the Father Christmas Stamp Set.  This holder looks like it was difficult to make, but in reality it is easy.  It is such a beautiful gift card holder, I love it!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Card Stock # 120953

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2"
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 9" score at 4 1/2"
  • scrap for 1 1/2" circle

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4"
  • scrap for 1 4/" circle 

Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper # 141981

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Here is a picture of what it looks like partially opened.  For this picture I pulled down the bottom part of the holder.  Here is a picture of it opened all the way.

Here are the steps to make this holder:

  1. Stamp all you images on your Whisper White Card Stock using Crumb Cake (for a softer look) or Soft Suede (for a more bold look).  
  2. Use Crumb Cake ink and sponge around all the edges (make sure you do all edges that fold)
  3. Adhere your stamped pieces to the appropriate Crumb Cake card stock
  4.  Using the 2" circle punch, punch out half of circle on the biggest piece of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper
  5. Adhere the Designer Series Paper
  6. Fold your holder so that Santa is on the top of the bottom fold.  Put a dimensional so that it is just below the flap with Santa on it.  You want to be able to still open up this flap.  
  7. Then adhere the circles so that the bottom are even with the bottom of the card holder

The Santa will fit right under the circles.  Isn't it the best gift card holder?!  Whoever you give it to, they will love it!

This weekend I have been busy baking.  I make goodies bags for all of the daycare families and for Mr. Wonderful's work.  I made 13 different goodies.  My house still smells so good!  

Have a wonderful week!

Happy Stampin!

  stampin up, Stampin' Up! Candy Cane Christmas #142037,  Decorative Label #120907,  made by stampin scrapper, if you would like more ideas for cards, scrapbooking and gifts go to stampinscrapper.comFullSizeRender

You probably have noticed that I have been a little busy the last week or so; there was a reason.  Robin and I finished an order last night for 195 of the 5 Nugget Holders.  We were so excited!

You don't realize how much work goes into something like this until you have to make multiples of it.  We punched the Decorative Label Punch 585 times, scored paper a total of 2,340 times, used our trimmers I can't even figure that one out LOL, and cut with scissors over 3,000 times (I got a blister from those cuts).  Once we had them all cut, scored, stamped, punched and Designer Series Paper put on it was time to assemble them.  That part went a lot faster than I thought it would.  

I even had the daycare kids helping us with this project.  They had so much fun putting the nuggets into the boxes for us.  I love watching them work on project and how their little minds work. 

Here is my original post on how to make the 5 and 3 Nugget Holders. Merry Christmas Monday Week #3 Nugget Holder

It is a short post today as I have a lot to catch on now that this big project is finished. 

Have a fabulous day!

Happy Stampin!

Do you ever have those times when you need a fast gift card holder to make it extra special.  I have the right one for you!  This is a 5 minute project that you can decorate for any occasion.  This is one of those projects that I know I will use again and again.

This design reminds me of a matchbook with a little twist.

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath #135047, Embellished Ornaments #139759, Reason for the Season #139730, This Christmas Designer Series Paper #141628, Wonderful Wreath Framelits #135851, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more gifts, cards, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

To make this card you will need the following materieals:

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 2", 7 1/4" and 7 3/8"

Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 6 1/2" score at 1 3/4" and 6"

This Christmas Designer Series Paper #141628

  • cut at 1" x 6"

The first thing you will need to do is get out your Envelope Punch Board.  On the Cherry Cobbler paper on the longest end you are going to line it up with the 1" mark and punch.  Flip over the paper and line up with the 1" mark and punch.  Now your sides will be even. Next, fold up the bottom (where you scored at 2") and burnish it with your bone folder.  You are going to take your piece of This Christmas Designer Series Paper and adhere it around the bottom of the holder. You don't want to put any tape on the inside of this flap or your card will not fit.  Fold over the top part and crease your score marks with your bone folder.

On the Very Vanilla Card Stock you will want fold the bigger section up and stamp your sentiment on it.  I also stamped on the middle section with leaves.   Fold the top 1/2" section backwards and put Tear and Tape on this section.  Put the Very Vanilla piece into the bottom  flap on the Cherry Cobbler paper and push it in all the way.   Remove the white part of the Tear and Tape, making sure your paper is laying flat and fold over the top of the Cherry Cobbler.  Press down making sure your Very Vanilla paper is adhered to the Cherry Cobbler paper.  

Now you are ready to decorate it however you would like it.  I added a wreath, bow and twine and then it is finished!

Snow Place stamp set #139738, Christmas Magic #142119, Oh, What Fun #140386, Hot Chocolate Holder, Snow Friends Framelits #141490, Layering Oval Framelits #141705, Layering Squares Framelits #1414708, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more gifts, cards, scrapbooking, and 3D Project ideas go to stampinscrapper.com

Merry Christmas Monday!!!  It is suppose to be very cold here in Ohio this week and I know I will need something to drink to keep me warm.  Nothing warms me up like a good cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows.  I also like being wrapped up in a nice comfy blanket with the fireplace on.  Ahh I can picture it now.  

This is an easy project and a great one to hand out to your coworkers, friends, hair stylist, teachers, actually anyone you run into.  You know what I was just thinking.  This would also be a great little gift for in January when the holiday season is over and everyone is kinda blah. What a great pick me up!  I am going to have to remember that!

To make this project you will need the following supplies:

Marina Mist Card Stock #119682

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/4" x 3 1/3"

Real Red Card Stock #102482

  • cut at 2" x 3"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • scraps for penguin, scarf, earmuffs and snowman

I have pictures below that will show you all the steps.  

Fullsizeoutput_a7f

Place the square framelit from the Layering Square Framelits as shown in the picture below

Fullsizeoutput_a80

Now is when I stamped the handle and the outside of the packet.  I used the snowflakes from the Snow Place stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink.  Adhere your handles first making sure it is centered. Place tape on the outside edges of side without the cutout on it. Make sure you don't go all the way to the top or you will see your adhesive.  

Fullsizeoutput_a82

You can now fold over the right side onto the left and your project is now complete.  Add your favorite hot chocolate and you are ready to go!   To give it a little sparkle I added Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the snowman.
