Fancy Fold Friday

Good Morning Friends!  How cheerful and blessed I am this morning!  Why?  Not sure yet, but I'm so glad to be awake in the crisp, cold, frigid temperatures  that Colorado has sent my way!   Brrrrr!  Baby, it's cold outside!  But my heart is warm!  Whoo Hoo!

Here is a cute little card for my Fancy Fold Friday.  It's a Z-Fold card and I've used one of my favorite colors for this winter, Lost Lagoon!  I thought it came out kinda cute!

What's Your Favorite Thing About Christmas?

Oh the weather outside is frightful!  I love this season.  It can't be hard to tell, but just in case you didn't know, I also love Christmas songs, decorations, movies and Hot Chocolate!  

Here is a little cute & simple card I did for a sample for my Stamp-A-Stack by Mail.  I'm making some sample cards to showcase what may be in the kit.  

My favorite top 3 Christmas Movies are:
1.  Christmas Vacation
2. It's A Wonderful Life
3. White Christmas
What's your favorite Christmas Movie?

It's still snowing here in Denver!  Have a wonderful day, and I'll see you tomorrow! Happy Stampin'!

Christmas in Color

Hello friends.Today I thought id showcase card I was doing for a swap a while ago. I was trying to think of colors that kinda looked like Christmas, but really didnt?  The colors I chose were Lost Lagoon and Crumb Cake cardstock.

I also used designer series paper from yhe holiday catalog.  Oh, the flower is also a stamp rom the current IBC.  I think it came out ok and pretty. I didnt think Id like the combo as much as I did the finished card..

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells!

Good Morning, today is going to be ear marked Sunday Share day.  Happening every other Sunday.  I'll be sharing a scripture and then my project! 
So, here we go...

Friday I was at work and my co-worker walked in the office and said, her mantra for the day was Romans 8:28.  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Quickly we both said "all things means all things!" Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of a holiday season or even just life on it's own.  We see things happen and we wonder - all things Lord?  Yes, All things.  God is in control of all.  and I love him so - regardless of what I may be going through or see that I cannot control...It is all good!  He knows my name....He hears my every thought...(I love that song!)  

Well here too is my project for today's Sunday Share!  

Stamp Set: Wonderous Wreath
Ink: Basic Black, Garden Gree, Real Red.
Cardstock Colors: Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green
Tools: Wonderous Wreath Framelits
Pearls, Gell Pen
Embossing Folder: Stylish Stripes

Christmas Is Coming! ......

So what do you say after someone says "Christmas is coming!"??  I always say....The goose is getting fat!  I don't know....maybe that's just how I grew up!  I have always remembered that little song - Christmas is coming - The goose is getting fat! Please put a penny in the old man's hat!  Is it just me?

Anyway, I have a Christmas class coming up and this is what we will be making, well not the exact same thing, but something similar! It's a Jingle Bells Tags, Bags & More class!  I'm so excited!

I hope you are having a wonderful day so far! I am, because it's Friday and in a few more will be Black Friday!  Oh and what do we all do?  (well alot of us) do?  Shopping!  I can't wait! If you are in search of some Stampin' Up goodies I'll have some posted here and as always you can shop in my online store too!

Well here is a stinkin' cute sample of my tags.  These were my prototype, so to speak.  What do you think?

Thanks for popping in and seeing my creations!  I'll be back with more!

"Retro Thursday" - A blast from the Past!

Today, I’m featuring a card on my blog that takes me back.  Not that far of course, but for all those retired products that we had to say good-bye to.  I thought I’d start a Retro Thursday piece on my blog!  This paper is from the fresh prints paper pack we had a while ago for Stampin’ Up! Beautiful paper, but now added to the “beautiful paper – gone to the retired pile – stash!” 

So, what better way to use up my scraps then to have a day devoted to sharing some old paper or products?  In comes “Retro Thursday”.   I really do have a lot of paper, DSP (designer series paper) that I would like to use on some projects, but always want to stay current to show you the Newest that we have to offer!    
With Retro Thursday, I can just post a card (or two) that I’ve done that shows how pretty our papers have been and continue to be!  Thanks for looking and if you have time feel free to follow me!

Fall Pretties For The Season

Considering that it is snowing in the mountains, I have to sit back and appreciate the fall smells and feels here in Denver.  The leaves changing are a thing of the past.  The cool air is now COLD!  I'm looking in my closet for all the winter clothes, I had so nicely stored away.....Oooh fall, where did you go?

Well, here is my last tribute to my favorite season.  Fall.  This little card is just the type to warm my heart and get me ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  My most favorite holidays!  Take a peek and let me know what you think.  What's your favorite Holiday of this season?

Thanks for visiting me! 

I'm trying to figure out how to do a video so I can do some tutorials real soon.  Stay Tuned!

Letterpress Winter Gift Card Tutorial

I did a blog hop the other day with my team.  The Inking Everything Blog Hop! It was a blast!  I have had some requests for the triple time stamping and for these cute little gift cards.  I thought I'd start out with the gift cards as I had them fresh in my mind!  Here is my first free tutorial!  I hope to get them done online. On my YouTube channel, but for now this is my very first tutorial!  Hope you can follow along.  If you have any questions, just let me know!
Here we go! Here are the tools you'll need to get started.  Please forgive my crude tutorial.  It's my first so bare with me! 
Cardstock: 6 3/4 x 4 1/2
DSP: 1 1/2 x 3 3/4 
Belly Band: Optional - 1" x 6 3/4"

You start off with a 6 3/4 x 4 1/2 size sheet of cardstock paper. Use your bone folder or your stampin trimmer to score your cardstock @ 1 3/4x 4 1/2. Score these marks with the 6 3/4 side At the top of the trimmer.

Then turn your paper to the 4 1/2 side and score again on the both sides @ 1/4".

It  should look like this when your done scoring.

Use your score tool to make nice sharp crisp folds! I love my bone folder!

Next, you're gonna make some cuts.  Just along the sides where you scored @ 1/4".  Cut along all the sides EXCEPT where you are going to make your pocket for your gift card.  Also, cut in a little diagonal just so that the folding in goes real smooth!

Now score those sides that you have left and apply green glue or Tombow glue.  This is the sticky stuff! 

Now fold that part up and make a little pocket like this! Easy peasy right?

You can then add your layer (1 1/2 x 3 3/4" DSP) or what ever color paper you like.  

There you go! My first Tutorial!  If you have any questions, let me know!

Happy Halloween!! And a fond farewell!

I so thought that today we were supposed to go live with our very first team blog hop!! Whew! I would have given away all the goodies!!  It's TOMORROW!!!  November 1st. I think I'm over stressing.  Today, it was stressful at work, but then it was at home to! We are renewing our lease and it's just a stressful time for us.  I love my little place I call home.  One day I'll have to take pictures for you.  Oh and speaking of which -take pictures of my stamp room!

1 Day Left Til Halloween & a Challenge with Mojo Monday #369

Good Morning Everyone!  Well today is the 30th!  Only one more day til Halloween.  How cool is that?  Well here is my project for today!  A really simple card that I thought I’d try out a new card size.  It’s 3 ½ x 5 ½ and I thought since it was a new kind of card from me that I would do a little something different.  No fuss-No Muss kind of card! Really simple.  What do you think? I really loved this stamp set and will probably use this a lot more for fall cards!  Until my favorite holiday comes!  Wanna know what it is?  …..Guess!  Yep you got it! Christmas!! Actually I just love the holidays! They signify my personality so much! Love and sharing, caring and Christmas songs and warm heart-felt movies (Christmas Vacation – Chevy Chase!) I love that movie.  It’s my all-time favorite! 

Getting back to Halloween and the fall….Don’t forget tomorrow I have the blog hop going on!  Can’t wait for that either!  Yeah!!

I’m also entering this card to the Mojo Monday card challenge!  Here is a copy of the sketch and above is my card! My card is cut  like this :  first size is 3.5 x 5.5" and fits a regular A2 scored on the long side at 5.5"

As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Thursday or Halloween Eve!

It's ONLY 5 Days To Halloween!

5 days to Halloween! Starts Today!
Good Morning Friends!  I’m trying to make sure I have some goodie or “eye candy” on here at a regular basis! I’m working on a schedule to make sure they all get posted in a timely fashion!  Well with that being said, here is my most recent post of a little card class I had on Friday.  It was a Happy Harvest & Halloween Card Class.  I think the cards came out so well. 
What do you think? 
The paper is the ever popular (for this Halloween) Motley Monsters!  I love these cute little critters! So, let’s call this my countdown to Halloween!  With Monday, October 27, 2014 being the first day!  I had some other goodie bags posted earlier, so I’ll be making sure I post something until Halloween, ok? 
Well I hope you have a wonderful Monday and see you tomorrow with a new project!
Happy Stampin’

SUO Challenge #108: The Treat’s the Thing

Hello, and welcome to SUO challenge day on my blog.  Here is my contribution to the challenge.  I have never been a huge follower or one to celebrate Halloween, but as you can see, Stampin' up! has made it easy for me to make Halloween fun.
These are two treat boxes made with the 2-4-6-8 box! Super easy and stinkin' cute. Stay tuned for a video on that!

These two little m&m goodie bags were also made with the Motley Monsters DSP {designer series paper}. How cute are those pumpkins?

I need to get used to making a supply list for my projects.  So, with that being said...let me know if there is a simplier way to make my supply list?

Thanks for visiting & happy stamping!
