Stamping Christmas Invitations...

Sometimes we just need a simple, one layer project...
especially when it is an invitation being handed out for
the youth department's Christmas play at church.

I started with an invitation printed off from the computer,
then did some stamping with a stamp positioning tool...

Bough Hung Stockings...

made with the 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit!

The Christmas decorating at our house is complete...
except our stockings have not yet been hung
by the fire with care...
I've been waiting to have time to make some stockings
with the Trim Your Stocking die set from the Holiday catalog...
Plus, once I knew that the Paper Pumpkin kit was also going to be stockings,
I wanted to be able to incorporate those into my stocking hanging plan too.

Sparkling "Frozen" Inspired...

Last night I had a little time to get started
on making a birthday card for my youngest daughter.

Then this morning I was able to video the finishing of it
to share with you today!

The card is a "Frozen" inspired card 
to go along with the cake and presents!

Tis' the Saving Season...

Unlike most of my posts,
this is going to be more of an informational one
on the upcoming specials and products that Stampin' Up! 
will be doing over the next few months.

I'll start off by showing you the new logo!
In 2018, Stampin' Up! will be celebrating 30 years of business.

Gradient Sky...

Today's card highlights how to make a ombre effect
for a background for the Bethlehem Edgelit die.
The stars are from the coordinating stamp set. (BUNDLE)
I took a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White cardstock to make the background.

Hostess Gift Tags...

This year's November activity 
for the the teen group at church
was a progressive dinner. 

We had a great time!
The hosting families did a great job
of making it fun for the kids.

And this year's hostess gift included a fun gift tag!

Christmas Wreath Card...

Christmas Wreaths can be very beautiful...
but even plain green ones with a simple ribbon
can give a delightful Christmas touch to a space.

It also reminds me of the scene from It's a Wonderful Life
where the kids ask George if he brought home the "Merry Christmas wreath."
