I'll have a Blue Christmas!

 

Good morning!!

Did you sing along with that?? ;)

I haven't googled it yet, but I was wondering if that song was originally Elvis Presley's or someone else's first. 

 

Announcement:

MY CHRISTMAS CARDS ARE IN THE MAIL!!!!

So relieved!

Merry Christmas!

Back to Blue Christmas...

So I was just in the mood for some blue Christmas cards.

 

I'll start with this simple one I designed:

 

Beauty of the Earth DSP, Wintry 3-D Embossing Folders, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

This card makes me happy, because it uses the Beauty of the Earth DSP from the Annual Catalog.

 

It's more of a fall-ish DSP.

So whenever I can use something for somewhat of an alternate use, I'm like, BONUS!!

 

 

Here are a couple more swaps from my team members:

 

Arctic Bears, created by Ann Maede, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Arctic Bears, created by Mary Bearss, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

Here are some of the products used:

 

 

 

Have a fantastic day!!

More versions...

 

Happy Monday!!

 

Are you ready for this big week???

 

I'm not yet.

Hoping to get ALL my Christmas cards in the mail TODAY!!

(but still working on it.)

 

But I wanted to share a couple more versions of projects I've shared recently.

 

I've shown the bag toppers and a gift card holder on my Live!

AND I've shared them in my clubs--but wanted to make them different.

 

Here's a couple bag toppers we did:

(this DSP is gone, but hopefully you already have it!)

 

Whimsy & Wonder DSP, Tailor Made Tags Dies, dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

Then there's this GOLD FOIL gift card holder.

I don't think I've ever made one with gold foil, and I sort of LOVE it!!!

 

Pretty Pillowbox Dies, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I added the Ever Eden DSP, Eden's Garden Cotton Paper and the Garden Gems, too.

 

All of these are only available through January 3.

 

CLICK ANY PIC BELOW TO ORDER:

 

 

 

Have an amazing week!!

My bag, tag & card

 

Hey there--

 

Did you have fun shopping yesterday with free shipping?? :D

I love a good deal!!

 

I'm back today with my closeups from my Live! yesterday.

 

I realized there's a flaw in the design when I went to put something in it!

The tag/ribbon holds the bag topper in place!

 

I guess you could always just lift one side of the topper off one of the handles to put something in the bag or take it out.

 

But it made me laugh!

 

Here are my pics:

Oh hey--

Mark your calendars & get your wish list ready!!!

I was working on my blog and JUST received an email from Stampin' Up! saying Wednesday, 12/8, is FREE SHIPPING on orders of $50 or more!!!

 

Having said that, please keep in mind:

  • Due to the global shipping crisis, all orders placed during the free shipping promotion cannot be guaranteed to arrive by Christmas. 

 

 

I'll remind you again, but you can also come back here Wednesday and CLICK HERE TO ORDER.

 


 

I had a fun weekend--including our Ornament Exchange!

 

We had yummy food and a fun exchange.

 

Silly me.

 

I DID remember to take pics.

BUT--I only took pics of our projects!!

No people.

What was I thinking???

 

Well, enjoy our cool ornaments.

The only rule was it was to be handmade; it didn't have to be SU! products.
