Snow Much Fun

Today's share is a snowman card I made CASing a swap I got at the Louisville Kentucky Regionals from Donna Schneidtmiller.  I did change it a little but the basic idea was hers.  We made this card for a make-n-take at one of my workshops.  See you next time. Have a great day!

Christmas Tags

 Here's a shot of the Christmas Tags I made for a swap over at Stampin' Addicts.  I can't wait to see what everyone else made!!!
I really think this Christmas DSP is starting to grow on me.  I think (gasp) that I actually like it!  I made the tag using the Two Tag Die and Big Shot.  Love that die.  Have a great day everyone!

"O"val Christmas Tree (My First Round Project for UStamp Knock Out Punches!)

I had so much fun designing this round for Ustamp.  I love all our punches that Stampin' Up!  I came up with a Christmas Tree for my project using our large Oval punch and a stryofoam cone.  Add a trunk and some decor and you are done.
 I made the little presents using the Double Petal Punch and tags were made with the Jewelry Tag Punch.
And of course Dawn always wants us to make a matching card and Envy.  If you'd like to get the directions to this projects and 39 more projects, just click on the blinkie and it will tell you how.  Cost is $24.95 for the tutorials to all projects including step by step instructions plus lots of other fun stuff, like live chats with the design team and Dawn.  Have a great day!  and check back soon.

What I Demo'd at the Louisville, Ky regionals

 I demo'd how to make the small Resses Pumpkin for 2 1/2 hours!  I didn't think I could do it, but it was actually very fun and had exactly enough Resses in the bag to finish.  Then on my display board I had some bigger pumpkins that I made using the BS and the scallop Circle Dies.  So fun!
 Shot of the memo pad open.  Any of these would make a great gift for a friend or family member.
 and then I should a few people at the end of the day how to make these super easy pop up cards.
The magic is all in that little paper box in the middle of the card.  Did I say super easy?  yes they are!  Thanks to everyone who stopped by my both that day to watch me demo, I appreciated it and had so much fun meeting you.   Have a great day everyone!

Beautiful Swap Card

Isn't this card drop dead gorgeous!  This is a card I received swapping with designers over at UStamp.  Julia Leece created this card for the swap and I'm the lucky one who got to swap with her.  I have to get some of that specialty paper she used for it. So rich and beautiful!  Thanks Julia, great job!
