A Quick 6 X 6 page.

Here is a quick page that I did of one of "my little girls." I used colors to match her shirt. Green and purple are not necessarily colors that I would use together, but it worked here. I used my Big Shot to cut out the butterflies.

Enjoy your day!

Here is another Christmas page. Again, keeping it clean and simple. The DSP is from last year. And, I added some Old Olive, Real Red and Chocolate Chip cardstock for backgrounds.

I am hoping to get to some more fun stuff later this week!

Another Christmas Page!

Seeing all of these Christmas pictures with the tree included makes me want to go cut ours down! It is so easy to get me into the Christmas spirit. Yesterday, at church we made our Advent wreaths for the tabletop. Cutting and assembling all of those greens really got me in the spirit!

Again, this page uses retired SU! Designer Series Paper along with some retired Chocolate Chip satin ribbon! I was so excited to see the new mini catalog that will be available in January because there are about 10 colors of this faboulous satin ribbon available! Boy, I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Speaking of the mini catalog, we have a lot of upcoming changes! SU! is going to be offering clear mount stamps and blocks. They are also redoing their punch style! So stay tuned for more information.

A Christmas Layout

Even though it is from last year, this is a Christmas layout that I did last week. I used my Delightful Decorations stamp set and punch. The paper is from last years Christmas DSP and/or scrapbooking kit.

I usually struggle with my Christmas layouts. I try to think out of the box, but usually end up going back to greens and reds. This DSP added some color that I normally don't use while allowing me to enjoy the traditional red and green!
Have a good day!

I have had some time to scrapbook!

Recently, I was able to devise a plan to get some scrapbooking done. Ever since I started scrapbooking I was up to date with my photos. The more pictures I had the more I would scrapbook. Well, within the last year my scrapbooking has taken a back seat to so many things. I always enjoy doing "current" pictures as opposed to last years events. But, I fell behind.
Little by little I have been able to work on it here and there. This page is a current one for our refrigerator. These are the family pictures that we just had taken 2 weeks ago. I am thrilled with the way that the pictures came out. And, I love this page!
The snowflakes are done with my Big Shot and the sizzlit snowflakes. I stuck a brad in each snowflake. The ribbon is the real red polka dot ribbon from SU! I have found that I stick to my SU! stuff for 95% of my scrapbooking. It is so easy to mix and match colors!
Have a great day!

Simple Snowflakes.

This is another card that we did at the last workshop. Again, I tried to stick with straight stamping. The colors that I used were Real Red, Night of Navy and Sage Shadow. It is a little out of the ordinary, but came together nicely. I was expecting a rather large crowd, so I had to choose a ribbon that I had a lot of. And, that was Sage Shadow.
Thanks for checking in.

A Simple Christmas Card

Here is a card that I made for a recent workshop that I had some "new" stampers at. I try to keep these workshops simple so that no one is overwhelmed. I used the Home For Christmas stamp set. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink and colored it with the water color pencils. Then I used the two way glue pen and added some dazzling diamonds.

Have a good day!

Two More Gifts From the Package.

Here is a paper ornmanent that looks like my partner spent a lot of time making. She also included the instructions which include alot of gluing and folding! It is a very pretty ornament.

Here is a paper Christmas tree that she made too! She used her cicle scissors plus and folded the circles. Then she glued them onto a dowl which she stuck into a foam circle. It is very cute and cheery and I can't wait to add it to all of my Christmas decorations!

Thanks for all that you sent my way!

A Little Paper Wagon!

I thought this was a lovely little thing! It didn't look that complicated and the options are endless. I love the wheels with the jumbo eyelets. My partner made a little SU! box to go into the wagon and added a incentive stamp. I could also see little 3 X 3 cards in there or candy....I could go on and on!

How clever!

The Frame That I Mentioned!

I think this piece of work is so cool! It goes right along with my style lines of clean and simple. Yet, it says so much! I can't decide whether to hang it in my stamping room or bring it along to workshops. What a perfect display of the SU! colors!
So much fun!

So, What Was In My Swap Package?

Well, I am glad that you asked! My package was jam packed with goodies! I received so many cute and tasty things, I don't even know where to begin. So, here is a picture I took of the whole thing and I will feature some of the items in future posts.
One of my favorites is the frame. She punched a circle of all 48 SU! main colors. And, then featured the saying "I never met a color that I didn't like." That pretty much sums up my feelings for the SU! colors! Once I get my hands on them, I learn to love them!
Have a good day!

Magnets for my partner.

Here is a simple set of magnified magnets that I made. I love making these little guys. They are so simple. And, I am always in need of a good magnet. I get so annoyed with flimsy magnets that just fall off of the fridge. These magnets are heavy duty and pretty to look at!

I placed a piece of red cardstock in the bottom of this little container, and simply stuck the magnets in there. I thought it was pretty even if it wasn't hanging on the refrigerator!

The paper that I used is from the holiday mini. It is one of their specialty papers. There are a few sheets that have felt on them. And, it has some shimmer to it. I really enjoy this paper!

I hope that your week gets off to a good start!

Another Edible Piece

My partner indicated that she would like something dark chocolate. I found this KING sized Special Dark Chocolate candy bar. Luckily for her, I didn't eat it prior to sending it. I simply covered it with a piece of Night & Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. Added some ribbon and a couple of pumpkins for Halloween and there it is!

A Christmas Ornament!

This is a glitter ornament that I made for my partner. These ornaments are so fun to make! This one I made in Garden Green and dazzling diamonds. Sometimes, I like to add the little tag with a sentiment. And, I did that with this ornament!

The Next Two Are Edible.

So, here are two more treats that I put in the package for my swap partner. The top one is just cardstock and a plastic bag. I cut and scored the cardstock so that it fit around the bag of peanut M & M's. I used my oval punch to punch a hole and added a few embellishments. Wa-La!

This is just a simple glass container filled with candycorn. Again, I used a couple of my punches to decorate the lid and tied on a ribbon!

Fun, fun, fun! Have a great weekend!

The Second Assignment!

The second assignment that we received was to create something from your partners survey that they would like a sample of and include instructions. So, my partner was interested in the tri-shutter card. This is the card that I created just for her!

I used my Big Shot to make the butterflies and leaves for this card. The DSP that I used is To The Nines Specialty paper. The texture of this paper added to the card also!

I had alot of fun with this assignment. As you can see with all of the tri-shutter cards that I have made so far!
Thanks for stopping by!

So, We Begin the SUDEMOONLY Partner Exchange Box.

Well, I can reveal what I sent to my partner in her box of goodies. Today, we will begin with this card. The first assignment that we were given was to stamp something in pink in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month (because the swap began in October). Let's just begin by saying that I don't stamp much in pink, so this was interesting for me. Occassionally, I will use a little pink here or there, but never just pink.
So, I sponged some circles in Melon Mambo. Then I used the Flight of A Butterfly stamp set to add some butterflies. I used some polka dotted melon mambo ribbon. Then, finished the card with my spritzer tool and marker.
This is just the beginning.....check back in for some more fun posts!

My SUDEMOONLY Christmas Card Swap

If you couldn't already tell, I am in love with making these cards! They look like they would take forever, but that is really not the case! I found in making this swap, that it is easier to make one card at a time. Because they vary just enough that it is difficult to make them work otherwise.

For this card I used the new Designer Series Paper Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper. It is lovely! I also used the Stampin Up! Textured Impressions Folder Petals-A-Plenty. I used the Many Merry Messages stamp set and the Delightful Decorations stamp set. The punch is the Ornament punch from the mini catalog, too!

So, hopefully the gals that I sent these cards too have received them and are enjoying them! I certainly had a blast making them and was thrilled with the way that they all turned out!

Have a great day!
