Fancy Friday, Fancy Tags!



Hello and welcome to your next stop on the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! 

It's the Friday before Christmas and we are focusing on TAGS! Hopefully at this point, all you have left is to wrap those presents, so I have a few Fancy Tag ideas for you.



 I usually stick to traditional Christmas colors. But, to tell ya the truth, I'm pretty sick of Christmas colors at this point! So, my favorite combo of Strawberry Slush and Pool Party is what I chose for these! 


These tags are a mix of things from the Holiday Catalog and the upcoming Occasions Catalog! That paper is a sneak peek! It's actually from the Sale A Bration catalog! It's spritzed with Strawberry Slush ink. So exciting to see it change from white to pink!

Again, more SAB paper. And, you see the "string?" It is a piece cut off of some new ribbon that will be in the Occasions Catalog as well. It pulls apart so easily and really is fun to work with. 

Don't forget about the wrapping paper. It is in the Holiday Catalog, but really can be used all year. I am stocking up on it before it is gone! More paper from Sale A Bration as well here!


Ok, I hope you feel inspired! I know I am ready to put Christmas behind us and start with the Occasions Catalog goodies. It's awesome y'all!! Just wait till you see it!

You're off to my friend Jane Lee. I can't wait to see what she has for us! 

Local Friends! BINGO is just around the corner!
Last day to RSVP is December 23!!

Gingerbread House Ornament

Earlier this week, I attended a wonderful party at my sideline, June Leyendecker's house. We all brought a "shoe box swap" to share. A shoe box swap is a simple project to share. The theme was "a wrapped homemade goodie."


We spent a couple of hours working through each other's projects. It was so much fun! I ended up with 12 wrapped homemade goodies, each different! 

Here is one created by my sideline Shari Fritz. So pretty! 

My project used last month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I saw this idea on Rosmarie Diehel's blog. So, so cute and easy!! 

 We also did an ornament exchange, white elephant style!


That was REALLY fun and got a little crazy in the end with the all the stealing!
My ornament was a little Gingerbread House.
I started with the smalls Envelope Liner Framelit for the front and back shape. The rest is history... I have no idea how I made it, and am not sure I could recreate it! LOL!

I used the Striped Scalloped Thinlit for the roof. Looks like icing, right? 






And here is one final picture of all the ladies in attendance. It was so much fun and I am so glad to have these ladies in my sideline! And, I am so thankful for June for hosting such a fun gathering during such a crazy time of the year!

Let's Get Away Project Life by Stampin' Up

Hello everybody! I am having so much fun playing with all my new Occasions Catalog goodies. I feel so refreshed when a new catalog comes out. It's like my batteries have been recharged! For those of you that don't know, the Occasions Catalog goes live for everyone January 6, but if you are a Stampin Up demo, you have early access!!

So, I love the colors in the new Let's Get Away Project Life Card and Accessory Collection. It feels so fresh and springy! I used the cards to quickly make a card for this wake's Hand Stamped Sentiment's challenge. That's the beauty of these cards- they all coordinate so well and make creating so easy!


So there is no stamping on this card. None! The sentiments is done with letter stickers from the Accessory collection! 
So. Easy.
I added a doily that isn't from the collection, but everything else is Project Life By Stampin' Up. Isn't it a fun color pallet?

Make sure you check out the other designers at HSS this week! This will be last challenge with HSS sadly. I am just so busy these days, that I am having a very hard time making my designer deadlines. But, I will still play along when I do have time because HSS always has a great challenge!


Thanks for stopping by today! If you'd like to get your hands on the Occasions Catalog NOW, remember, you can if you join Stampin' Up! Check out all the details here.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Seasonally Scattered- LOVE



Hello everyone!! Are you ready for this week? We are getting down to crunch time! I've got so many loose ends to the up before my company arrives early next week!! Eeeek!

This morning, I am sharing a scrapbook page I made (what seems like years ago now!) for last summer's Stampin' Up Convention. It features a set in the current Holiday Catalog called Seasonally Scattered.

I used the "love" stamp to scrapbook my daughter's pictures form last year's Daddy/Daughter dance. 

I embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder on Vellum Cardstock and layered it over White cardstock that had a Real Red Chevron stamped on it. 

Lots of paper layers including Back to Black DSP and Gold Striped Vellum.
This set is only available through January 6th, so make sure you grab it before them!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Monday!
