New Year brings changes :)

Good morning!

Just a quick note to say hello and let you all know that I'm alive and well and Christmas was great!

Over the next few days I'm working behind the scenes preparing for the new year.  In January I'm adding some programs, deleting some programs and changing a few.   I think it's the perfect time to roll out new ideas and I'm really looking forward to the changes!!

I hope you have a fantastic week …. I may see you in a few days …but we'll see how much I get done ….. my priority is getting everything ready for the roll out 🙂   

Thanks & have a great day!!

p.s. The Holiday Mini Catalog ends Jan 3rd and the Stocking Builder Punch will retire with the catalog.

12 Days of Christmas #12 Reindeer Food

2011ChristmasEmailBanner copy
Reindeer Food #12This Reindeer Food is the 12th project for my 12 Days of Christmas.  

I made this project with the Packing Paper that comes in our Stampin Up! orders …it's usually in a bundle and if you flatten it out you can reuse it.  (Check out my video to see how.)

I used the Scallop Square Die for this Reindeer Food …along with the Bright Hopes stamp set and the Winter Post stamp set.

I stamped snowflakes with White craft ink onto the paper and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.

At the very end …I sprayed the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with Alcohol to give it a nice shimmer.

Two Tags Christmas Treat

I took two 3 x 5 pieces of Cherry Cobbler card stock and embossed them with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and then I cut them out with the Two Tags Die.

Here's another picture to show you the sides ….

Two Tags TreatI used the Tags Til Christmas stamp set and stamped the greeting twice … once with Early Espresso and then with Cherry Cobbler.  I cut out the center with the 1" Square Punch and used the Scallop Square Punch for the other one.

The larger Early Espresso card stock Scallop Square was cut out with the Square Scallop Duo Die
