Christmas and Love

Hi Crafty Friends!

The Christmas season for me is all about Love. Love of family, friends and our lives. If it were up to me, I would celebrate all year. The Love part, that is. 

My Stampin' Up! involvement has brought so much Joy to my has enriched me in countless ways mostly by being able to share my creations.

The above sampler is an example of what I Love sharing. Making shadow boxes, wreaths, banners, cards and countless other variations of paper crafting items are all an outer expression of what I so very much enjoy doing almost on a daily basis.  

This was made almost entirely with our beautiful Candy Cane Land Christmas designer series paper.
The frame is 12x12 and the squares are 3" each. 

Hoping that Love finds a way into your Heart this Christmas Season!

Paper Pumpkin Christmas Ornament

Hi Fellow Crafty Friends!

Welcome to my humble blog. Earlier this year, I began subscribing to Stampin Up's My Paper Pumpkin. Each month I received a kit that comes with instructions and all materials to create some very nice paper crafts. Sometimes they are cards, one was a little wreath, which I adore and various 3-D items.

This is a version, my interpretation of the most recent kit. I LOVE Christmas! And somewhere out there in Cyberland I saw this idea and have not been able to retrieve it to give due credit.

So, I somehow figured out how to make my own ornament.

A few years back, Stampin Up sold the mica flakes and I had some other retired tools that made this come together quite effortlessly...was a lot easier than I anticipated! I love when that happens!

Let me know what you think...I might have to make at least another version, perhaps pink or something.

Well...on to my next Christmas project! This past Friday I went to the Briar Patch Christmas Fair at a local high school. So many ideas are swimming around in my head...LOL!

And my little Elfie friend has been busy too decorating around the house...she fears it might be a little too cool to venture out to the shed to bring in some more boxes of goodies :) A nice hot cup of chocolate would probably motivate her!

Well...hope you are enjoying this Christmas season...stay tuned for more adventures!

Love & Blessings...

Gingerbread Greetings

Greetings my fellow paper crafting...rubber stamping friends! you can see...I have been quite busy lately!

Our beautiful Stampin' Up! designer series paper Candy Cane Lane is probably my all time favorite Christmas paper so far and I have been using and utilizing every single little scrap and piece to my heart's content.

From the right side of the photo is a tag that I created for a swap that was held in October and the  middle tag was created for a swap with my team members earlier in November.

And my little Gingerbread house was put together yesterday while it was gray, cloudy and rainy here in what is usually sunny and warm Phoenix, AZ. Would a collection of these be really cute in an evergreen swag adorning either a fireplace of doorway? OHHH! Now I have to get even busier and make more! 

Other projects that are in process include...wreath making, shadow boxes, banners, Christmas cards all with beautiful Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog products!

Hope that you are all warm and cozy and enjoying your crafty adventures...wherever they take you.

Until next time...

Happy Stamping!
