This Merry Christmas House was made at my weSTAMP Christmas Party! Isn't it darling? Our gracious make and take hostess Rachele Sanclemente organized this project for twenty-five ladies at my upline, Lorri Heilling's home. It was awesome to get to put this oh so cute project together!
From my home to yours...a very Merry Christmas with Peace and Love being the theme throughout the Holiday Season.
There are so many wonderful, creative gift ideas out there in blogland that it was almost impossible to narrow it down to one to pull together for my weSTAMP Christmas party this year. When I finally decided, it all came down to creating something that I truly LOVE...and for me, my home is my sanctuary.
The frame was purchased at a local craft store and the papers are all SU...early espresso, crumbcake and very vanilla along with some of our beautiful Jewels Basic Rhinestones.
The flowers were inspired by Diane Dechaine, I learned how to create them at a Dazzling Diva meeting with her assistance, she is the Flower Queen!
Well, that is all for now...I must away and work on a few more gifts and begin decorating my house for Christmas.
Hope that each and every one of you has a Blessed, Joy-Filled and Happy Christmas...until next time...
After having created a couple of banners earlier this year, one being a Baby Boy and another one for my darling grandaughters, Keira and Kaely's 2nd birthday celebration...I needed to come up with a total of 7 gift items to swap at my Dazzling Divas downline Christmas party earlier this month and as you can see, I have been quite busy working my little fingers to the bone...LOL...literally...yes...but I thoroughly enjoyed making each and every one for all of the special ladies in this wonderful group of happy stampers!
Since we have 16 days left before Christmas, I might have to make some more banners...using other words such as LOVE...PEACE...CHIC...well, you know where this is going...all over the place!!!
If anyone has any ideas, I welcome them...simply send me an email to: Lindam530@cox.net
This time of year so many of us enjoy crafts, decorating and baking...oops...baking...no, not me...LOL. So, instead I decided to make a non-food gingerbread gift tag using Stampin" Up!'s Fancy Flower Extra Large Punch which is available in our IBC on page 200...item # 118073...I like to use ribbons as embellishments and these are retired now, but so pretty when used together...there are several others just like this one just waiting to be tied on some Christmas gifts that I will be sharing with my wonderful family and friends.
Well, I guess you can say that I got a little carried away with the quilting technique as I just had to make about twenty-five of these little pretties using the color combination of Stampin' Up!'s pretty Candy Cane Christmas designer paper which is complete SOLD OUT now. The pretty colors in this combo are garden green, baja breeze, blushing bride and real red. I used some retires dsp to make the little squares for this card, ran it throught the top note die and the textured impressions square lattice embossing folder to give it the look of fabric.
Don't you just LOVE this time of year when we can all cozy up with a blankie and sip our favorite hot drink, mine is tea...and watch TV, read a book, etc. Well, that warm, fuzzy feeling just took over my card making this year and I decided to use our beautiful Stampin' Up! Deck the Halls designer paper and cut 1 1/4 inch pieces, then running it through the Big Shot top note die, then the Textured Impressions Vintage Wallpaper folder to make this quilt card. One of these could also be on its' way to your door as there are at least a dozen circulating the postal system right this very minute!
Hope that your Holidays are everything that you could possibly imagine including family, friends, fun and but of course...Stamping!
This card is one of several that I made for sending out to family and friends this Christmas Season. I so LOVE Stampin' Up!'s new cherry cobbler cardstock and especially the pretty designer paper that I used on this little greeting. I made a set of about 15 of these and they are going in the mail today...perhaps one of you will be a lucky recipient!
