Do you love to decorate your home for the holidays? Who doesn't right? Here is a great way to get everyone involved. You think I am going to tell you to grab the kids and pop the popcorn and start stringing popcorn for the tree don't you? Not today. Today we are using paper and making wonderful wreaths. Grab your Paper Trimmer and a package of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (I love Season of Style #132340 out of the Holiday Catalog) some straight pins, a 12" wreath form (or size of your choice) and your bone folder.
Yep!, you too can make this in just a few hours of work and add the kids in to help and lickity split you can knock one out in no time at all. Wouldn't this make a fantastic teacher gift? or any gift for that matter. The nice thing is this is definitely one of those projects you can sit next to the hubby while you watch Football or Baseball or Soccor or Nascar or hunting shows or Duck Dynasty or Dancing with the Stars or The Voice...whatever TV show he and you are into together.
I mentioned that a week or so ago I went on a Stamping retreat. I had a host of projects I worked on but have not had a lick of time to get them posted for you. Today I share one of my favorites. I was looking at Connie Collins blog, she is one of the Artisan Award winners with Stampin' Up!, and just fell in love with the way she decorated her Mini Muslin Bags #132180
It's a process of Stamping the Joyful Christmas Stamps with Stazon on tissue paper, applying some decoupage medium, applying the tissue to the bag, applying more decoupage medium, letting it dry and then coloring with our Stampin' Write Markers. It's that simple but with a great impact. I can't wait to try another one. When I do get around to it, I will be sure to post it in a timely manner.
You can check out Connie Collins You Tube Video here on how to re-create this technique.

Have you seen the new Envelope Punch Board that Stampin' Up! recently came out with? Are you thinking to yourself, "Do I really need another tool just to make envelopes when I already have the score board with diagonal score plate?" Well, honestly I had the same questions but the answer is unequivably YES! And let me show you why:
Not only does it make over 65 different sized envelopes you can also make boxes, file folder cards and much, so much more! It also has a built in corner rounder. The size is compact and the tool is well made. The problem right now is everyone LOVES it SO much that the supplies are running low. So before you finish this post and see the rest of the pictures go order yours now here: Envelope Punch Board. Then come back here to finish up reading so you can use it for the project below.
Ok, now that you are back,
Here is a little video on using the new tool.
Now I want to share this wonderful project that I made for my beautiful Mother-In-Law who had surgery last week. I knew she would be getting flowers and meals delivered to her and I knew she would want to have some Thank You cards ready to mail out to the kind people who thought of her during this time so I made her this little gift and took it to her in the hospital.
This card is an easily duplicatable card using the Truly Grateful stamp set out of the Holiday Mini Catalog. Of course don't forget to stamp your envelope for a truly coordinated look.
I made the box for these "A-2" size cards with the new Envelope Punch Board and a piece of 9 x 9 Cardstock. Score and punch at 3.5" and 4.5" on the first side then turn the cardstock 90 degrees and using the score guide punch and score the rest of the way around your cardstock per directions on the actual tool. Tape your box with sticky strip as you would an envelope but finish it off with a belly band of your choice. This is what I did on mine.
I hope you enjoy your Envelope Punch Board as much as I have since I received mine. I'm here to help you with your Punch Board when you order from me online or by email. That's the difference between ordering your supplies from M.E. vs. the big box store which leaves you high and dry when it comes to ideas, samples and help. I will do one-on-one sessions, offer classes or come bring projects to stamp with your friends in the privacy of your own home or mine. What Craft and Hobby store offers those services? None near my house.
Let me be of service. Email me today!
When I asked my Son what kind of cake he wanted for his 21st birthday he didn't hesitate to say Tres Leche cake. One of our family favorites. It's so delicious, moist and yummy! I love the recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
I am not a big lover of birthday candles. When you get to my age it takes FOREVER to get them all lit and all the wax dripping on the cake...well, you get the point. We always sing the Birthday Song and I usually have one candle somewhere to blow out so the birthday girl or boy can make a special wish so no worries there. So to dress up this cake I remembered that I received this great quick project not so long ago right in my mailbox from My Paper Pumpkin. A resource from Stampin' Up! that gives M.E. a 15 to 30 minute creative "get away" every month. I love it!
Here is the adorable birthday banner. What do you think?
Here is the birthday boy Ethan getting ready to enjoy his delicious cake. There was only one piece left so that speaks volumes on how much we all LOVE it!

My dear friend Ramona Simpson just shared this very cool technique with me and I want to share it all with you so I made a video tutorial to show you. I changed mine up a little from what she shared with me but I think this is one of those techniques that you can really play around with once you have the basics. Have fun with it and please, please after you watch the video come back and let me know what you think by commenting below.
Here is a sample of the technique:
On all my samples I used the same combo of colors. Pumpkin Pie #126945 Daffodil Delight #126944 Crisp Cantalope #131176 This sample uses the stamp set Serene Silhouettes Clear Mount #127324 Wood Mount #132073
Now please watch my video (if you are reading this in an email subscription please click through to my blog to see the video) and then come back to see more samples below.
Here are the samples up close as shown in the video.
Now if you need to purchase your inks, sponges or a stamp set or two please visit my online store by clicking the link below I really appreciate serving you!
I saw this cute punch art Lion when I was googling ideas for the new Stampin' Up! Thinlits Circle Card die. (Yes, I need inspiration too!) I am not sure exactly why it was on there because it did not involved the Circle Card die but I am glad it was. The original lion punch art was made by Elizabeth Green.
Today I had a wonderful group of women join me around my Kitchen table for chatter, coffee, tea some delicious sweet yummy goodness and yes some stamping too! Of course! This is the card I "threw" together this morning just minutes before the first doorbell ring! Lucky I had Elizabeths inspiration idea!
Fork n Spoon Man couldn't wait to show you it so he ran outside and said "Take My Picture! Take My Picture!" so as the good mother I am I did just that!
If you haven't seen these great new dies here is everything you get in them...tons right?!!
