Holiday Dreaming!

Frostwood Lodge Snowman

It’s that most special time of the year that Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators dream about!  The new Holiday Mini Catalog is upon us and one of the great things about being a demonstrator is getting access to the products from this catalog one whole month ahead of the release of the catalog so we can begin preparing great holiday projects to share with all of you!  So today’s card is one of the holiday cards which will be featured in an upcoming Christmas Club class.  I will be releasing information on this new club later this month so if you haven’t subscribed to my blog yet, do so today so you don’t miss out on the details.

Today’s card uses the new Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper and features these cute gingham squares in Garden Green.  It really stands out when paired with Real Red CS.  Peeking out from behind Mr. Snowman and punched out with the Scallop Circle punch is our new Silver Glimmer paper which is absolutely glittery! Don’t think that is a word, but is so appropriate when describing this paper.  It’s the best glitter paper ever since it does not flake or chip off when you cut or punch it.  It’s already available in red in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  This card was originally designed as a make & take for my downline meeting this past weekend, but I like it so much it will be making an appearance in one of my Christmas Club classes.  Let me know what you think of the new holiday products and check back each day this week as I will be featuring new products every day!

Successful Spring Open House!

Held my Open House this weekend and loved seeing my customers, old as well as new! We enjoyed good company, good food (chili on Friday night and chicken salad on Saturday) and some fun projects which I designed with the beautiful Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. The colors featured in this paper packet are Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  

6x6 Spring Scrapbook Page

The first project was a 6×6 Spring scrapbook page. I stamped the medallion on Whisper White cardstock, punched it out with a circle punch, mounted it on the Small Round Metal Edge Tag, added a white half pearl from the Pretties Kit and popped it all up with dimensionals making a beautiful spotlight on this small page.  You can always add this smaller page to a 12×12 page by adding more designer series paper onto your 12×12 cardstock and then your 6×6 will become your focal point or embellishment on the page.

Mother's Day Card with Matching Envelope

The second project was a Mother’s Day card using those beautiful large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Pretties kit. They are originally white, but we dyed this one a Rich Razzleberry by using an Aqua Painter and dipping it into some Rich Razzleberry ink and painting it onto the flower. You should start light and add more color as you go along.  The shade you desire is all up to you.

Scallop Bag Easter Treat

  The third project was a cute little Easter treat bag using the Sizzix Big Shot and the Bigz XL Scallop Bag die. It’s extremely easy to put these little bags together with a few strips of Sticky Strip and would make great favor bags for a wedding.
