As you can see I have been taking a break from crafting. I will be back, I just needed to refocus on family and the holidays. This is a special time of year for most, but with three pre-schoolers it's extra special. I have been busy baking, making decorations, playing in the snow, and making sure that my kids get caught up in the magic of the season. I don't know who's more excited for Santa to come- them or me. They are of the age where they "get it" and it's fabulous. They ran into Santa at the grocery store the other day and were awestruck. On that note, Stay Safe, Keep Warm, and Have a Truly Magical Christmas.
Boy it's been awhile since I posted. Sorry about that. The CK Convention burnt me out. Now with the holiday preparations in full swing I am focused on that. Good thing I had club last Friday. It forced me into my stamp office for a little crafting time. Here's what we did.
This little box is so darn cute. It is made with the Scallop Envelope Die used with the Big Shot. We cut out 4 of them and layered them together. Super cute. I can't wait to make some Valentine and Easter versions of these.
This card is done with the all season set "It's a Stretch." A very cute set you can use year round. The stocking has a thin layer of Crystal Effects on it to pop it out a bit.
We did another card using the "Tree of Friendship" set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I love this set, especially for the winter. I am a snowflake nut, so I a bit impartial.
Here are some cute little peppermint patties decorated with some punch art. I used a pattern of punches I found on SCS done by: tjdstampsalot There are several other Santa options on the site, but I liked the simplicity of this one. I have also provided you a picture of the punch diagram we used during club so that everyone was sure to punch the right quantity and color of punch shapes.
Happy Holidays. I hope to get some more stamping done, however I just received my pre-order of new catalog products and SU is now forbidding us from posting the samples until the products are officially released. Hopefully I will have some spare time to play with my "old" stuff too. Stay tuned.
