Switch Up!

This is one of the cards that was out for the ladies to make at my COME STAMP WITH ME TUESDAY class. A card inspired by Cindee Wilkinson using the (retired) Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.
I had some of these elements left over so I tried my hand at designing some cards using the SMITTEN MITTENS Stamp Set and Dies 
 I used a Sneak Peek embossing folder from the upcoming Occasions Catalog called SIMPLE STRIPES. It is NOT one of the Dynamic Embossing Folders but when using on the Designer Paper (which is thin compared to our regular card stock) it wanted to rip so I had to be careful. I can see though, that I am going to love this SIMPLE STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER. I teamed it up with Crumb Cake Card Stock, Linen Thread and THAT'S THE TICKET (retired) Stamp Set and Ticket Punch
This one is just a little bit different and I wish I had used SOFT SKY Card Stock instead of Pool Party, but I wasn't about to change it once I had it finished.
Which one do you like best?
Oh, Hello Lucy!!
Just had to leave you with a little cuteness!!

Nailed It!

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
A couple weeks ago we made this tool themed card (inspired by Rose Packer) at my Come Stamp With Me Tuesday Class
The beauty of the Come Stamp With Me Class not so much to generate sales, but that the ladies can just come and enjoy some time making cards.  They can make as many or as few as they want/need.  When the kits are gone, they are gone!! It also gives me the freedom to use retired stamp sets, paper, accessories, etc that I have on hand.
It was such a big hit!
I used the Hardwood back ground stamp with Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.
The CLASSIC LABEL PUNCH is used for the "hinges", and for making the fence top. The 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches for the ring (punch out your smaller circle first).  I added a 1/4" square on top of the circle and the little strip is 3/16 wide.
I stamped the screw driver and saw onto whisper White Card Stock and colored in with my Smoky Slate Light Stampin' Blends, then stamped the tools again onto Crumb Cake (Early Espresso Ink), cut them all out with the dies that came as a bundle then added the handles to the tool. The ruler is an impression die that comes with the stamp set (sorry that it is retired but perhaps you purchased it when it was current)
The "It's Your Birthday" stamp is from the August 2014 Paper Pumpkin, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
There is a lot of little details on this card but well worth the time.
This card (inspired by Kim Williams) is out for the ladies to make today at the Come Stamp With Me Tuesday Class.
I am using up my retired Designer Series Paper, but the top 2" portion is stamped with the NAILED IT! Stamp set in Early Espresso and Delightful Dejon.
The tools are stamped with Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake Card Stock and then I used my Crumb Cake marker for some highlights. 
The little embellishments were also a part of that Suite and I had plenty left over when they retired.

Team Christmas Party Gifts

Monday, December 11, 2017
Christi's Creative Crew Christmas Party was last Thursday night!

WHAT FUN!!

It's so great when everyone loves being together

We enjoyed some games - we even had to sing to one another (loved it!  however it did catch some off guard and put them out of their comfort zone), and we had a fun gift exchange.

And wouldn't you know it!!! 😒  I totally forgot to pull out my camera to take ANY pictures.  I am so bummed.

This is the gift that I got that night during the gift exchange
I LOVE IT!!  I had just the couple decorations up behind the toilet and then I asked someone "should I put up a cute Christmas shower curtain?" and they said "no", so now I am really geeked about getting one because I think it looks great!!

This is the gift that I made to give.  I followed the directions from Debbie Henderson for the little mitten treat holder, but had to come up with a larger version on my own.

 This little treat held 3 of Dale's hand made lip balms

The larger one held one of Dale's Hand Lotions
If you are interested in any of his products please click on his web link.  He is selling his product all over the United States.  He even shipped to Hawaii once!!
Here they are side by side so you can see the difference.
The little one is made using the SMITTEN MITTENS Dies and since Debbie used the BUNDLE OF LOVE SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper I just had to do the same!!  Crazy how the mind works.
The SMITTEN MITTENS BUNDLE is retiring so grab it now before it is too late.  The END OF YEAR SALES EVENT is going on through January 2nd

Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, December 10, 2017
My Sentimental Sunday Post for today!
Last week Saturday our church hostessed a Christmas Fest for the community
 We all enjoyed a free spaghetti dinner.  Sawyer & Lily came with Mommy and Daddy
 Lily ate spaghetti and garlic bread like a champ!
Sawyer preferred the bread!! - I don't blame him - it was homemade and delicious!!
 There were MANY areas for photo ops around the church
My silly dad NEVER looks straight at the camera!
 
Sawyer got to decorate a Christmas cookie! (and eat it!)
There were MANY more games and activities for the kids
And I even had a chance to beat my dad at Jenga
What a wonderful evening to reach out to the community. We enjoyed live music all evening with grand pianos in the main auditorium where we ate and also in the lobby when you arrived or mingled. So good to see the kids from the Jr and Sr High groups chipping in for face painters, balloon blowers, music playing, etc.  It truly was a whole church event. My hubby was exhausted after a full day at a Winter Market here in town plus over-seeing the building and cleanup after this big event.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed Lord's Day!

Birthday Delivery

Friday, December 8, 2017
This card was out for the ladies to stamp this past Tuesday, and it was my very favorite one out that day.  Isn't the little pastry chef the cutest??!!
This card was made using the BIRTHDAY DELIVERY stamp set and dies and was inspired by Jackie Aitken
The checkered bottom resembles a tile flooring (in my opinion). 
I used to make my fair share of decorated cakes so this holds pretty dear to my heart, I guess.
The tile flooring is 1/2" squares.  Stampin' Up! sold a 1/2" square punch in years past and I am so glad that the ladies could punch their "tiles" instead of my pre-cutting a ton of 1/2" squares.

The Happy Birthday was stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Whisper White Embossing Powder.

Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum!

Thursday, December 7, 2017
The Little Drummer Boy is our 3 year old grandson, Sawyers, favorite! I just knew I had to get the MUSICAL SEASON BUNDLE when the Holiday Catalog came out.  I also fell in love with the MERRY MUSIC Designer Series Paper.
 I first saw this Triangular Box by Gemma
The bonus of this Triangular Box is that it fits one of these darling 4 oz mug candles that my hubby makes.
