Tags for You!

Do you like making Christmas Tags?

I love it! There are so many great stamp sets for tag making in the Holiday Catalogue. The first one I'm going to show you is Christmas Magic. (See the card I made with this stamp set below this post.)

The images are just the right size for a 2"x4" tag.

The ribbon on the tag is Real Red from the annual catalogue, but the gold cord is from the new Holiday Catalogue.

This north pole sign is adorable!

And the snowman is my favourite (today).

I hope you like them too!

My Holiday Catalogues have arrived - if you live in the Truro area be sure to drop in and pick up yours!

Hand Made Watercoloured Christmas Card

If you enjoy watercolouring (and I do), you'll find some delightful stamp sets in this new Holiday Catalogue. (Remember the Merry Mice set from a few days ago?!)

This little snowman is so endearing, and wait until you see what else is in the set! It's called Christmas Magic and includes five image stamps (two are shown below) and three sentiment stamps.

The star beneath the sentiment comes from a separate Starlight Thinlits Die set.

If you live in the Truro area you can pick up a catalogue from me next week. They are due to arrive on Monday!

Another Hand Made Christmas Card

I have to warn you - there are so many fun and gorgeous new stamp sets and bundles in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue... and I seem to love them all, I bet you'll find some favourites too!!!

So here's another hint of what is to come...

The highlight of this card is DSP!! Yes, those little houses are cut from a sheet of DSP - what could be easier! It's called Candy Cane Lane DSP and there are lots of fun designs in the pack.

The row of candy at the bottom is Washi Tape...great for cards, envelopes, tags, and so easy to use as well. Everything is from the Candy Cane Lane Suite (and there are lots more in that suite too!)

Remember you can obtain (and order) from this catalogue on September 1st... the countdown is on!!

Happy Stamping...

More Stampin' Up! Sneak Peeks

I've decided I will share some of my favourite Christmas cards made with products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue this week, and then go back to 'normal programming'!

The stamp set featured today is so cute, and I love the watercolouring opportunity.

It's called Merry Mice  and makes me smile every time I look at it.

Did you notice those adorable little red bells? Yup - they are in the catalogue too!! Along with the Candy Cane Lane DSP!

I'll give you more details when the catalogue goes live on September 1st. You will be able to see it online at that date on my Stampin' Up! site. Or if you live in or near the Truro, NS area contact me to obtain your hard copy.

Check back tomorrow for another sneak peek!!!

Happy Stamping,

Broken Promises are Sometimes Fun!

OK, I promised myself, and a few of my friends, that I wouldn't go crazy over the Stampin' Up! Christmas catalogue and start posting Christmas items until at least September...

But I Can't Help It!!! 

This catalogue is totally awesome ( a trite phrase but so true in this case!!!)

So without further ado, here is one of my favourite set of Thinlits Dies from the Holiday Catalogue that goes live on September 1st.  (If you want to get your catalogues early, with pre-order perks, ask me about becoming a Stampin' Up! demo!!)

Overall this is a simple card with all the emphasis on the die cuts, and what versatile die-cuts they are!! There are fir branches, pine cones, mistletoe, and bows. It's called Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and there is a stamp set to match!

The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set Christmas Pines, and I especially like the words 'from across the miles' as we have been transferred several times during my husband's career and this sentiment is so appropriate.

Be prepared for more 'favourites' in future posts!

Easy & Fun Note Cards

Hello Everyone!

If you checked out Chat's site yesterday you will see there was a set of note cards in her Flourishing Phrases tutorial too. I finished these up after the other ladies left, and they are so cute!!!

The little holder uses only 1/2 sheet of cardstock and is so easy to make!
Each note can be added to a gift you are giving, or the set makes a lovely gift all on its own.

You can purchase the tutorial on Chat's site - memystampsandi.blogspot.com
Thanks for visiting! Hope you have a lovely stamping day!

Flourishing Phrases & Friends

Two demos from our team dropped over today and we made up a set of Chat Wazelaki designed cards (with a few changes of course) Chat has great tutorials, you can see them at http://memystampsandi.blogspot.ca/

Here we are hard at work...  Don't we make a wonderful mess?!

And these are the cards we completed using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and corresponding dies. Plus the luscious Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" ruched ribbon.

Pink and green are my favourite combination so I love this set!

And it's not only the die cuts that are show stoppers, the stamped images are as well.

I always need sympathy cards so I changed the sentiment on this one (it was congratulations), so of course that changed the placement of everything so I had to improvise a bit, but I like how it turned out.

Funny the things you notice in photos - such as I really need to trim the ends of the ribbon on this card!!!

I hope you enjoyed your visit, and be sure to check out Chat's blog, she has lovely ideas!

Happy Stamping!

Umbrella Weather Together!

Several of our ASI Team got together on Saturday to have some fun. Linda had everything ready so we could make these two cards using the Weather Together stamp set (p. 55 AC) together with the Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies on p 193:

Now I have to admit this stamp set did not really catch my eye when I was looking through the catalogue (probably because I already had an eye full!!) But since then I've seen so many adorable cards made with the bundle.

The variety of sentiments and images makes this a versatile set for many types of cards: Thank You, Thinking of You, Shower cards and invitations, and Spring. I'm sure you can come up with more.

Weather Together Photopolymer Bundle  #142319

Here is a video from Stampin' Up! with more ideas for this bundle:

If you would like to order the stamp set and/or matching dies, please contact me, or go on-line and order directly.
