I just wanted to say hello and let you know I’ve been busy filming videos for the 12 Days of Christmas.
Tomorrow is the first of December and I plan on wrapping up this series before Christmas!!
Here’s a couple reminders …
Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog starts Jan. 3rd, 2013 and I’ll be sending you a FREE copy if you’ve ordered a minimum of $50 in the last 12 months. Please log in to your account and make sure I’m listed as your demonstrator. If you’ve ordered from someone else it removes you from my database and puts you over there (I’d be happy to do it …but … the system will not let me make any changes to your online account).
Sale-a-bration Catalog starts Jan. 22nd, 2013 – same thing … if you’ve ordered a minimum of $50 in the last 12 months I’ll be sending you a copy for FREE.
Holiday Catalog ends on Jan 2nd 2013 … make sure you take a quick look before it retires… the good news some of the items are carrying over (you’ll see when you get your Spring Catalog).
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday with another one of my 12 Days of Christmas projects.
p.s. Once again I’ll be drawing a name to win today’s project …and if you haven’t already figured it out …yes I’m giving away all 12 projects this year (I’m working on not keeping everything).
To enter to win today’s project .. I have a question I’d like you to honestly answer. I’m going to be streaming live again on UStream …. more frequently! So my question is … how would you feel about donating a small fee to watch … maybe $2? UStream charges $99 a month and that’s more than I can afford ….. but if half of the participates donated $2 …. then it should cover it. Let me know what you think.
The Tags til Christmas Altoid Tin Gift Card Holder is the 1st project for my 12 Days of Christmas.
You saw this project a few days ago because it’s my Black Friday Cyber Monday Special offering. Click here for the details on how you can get one for FREE.
The Altoid Tins are the perfect size to hold a Gift Card or a Visa Debit Card!
I embossed the Real Red card stock with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and after I attached it to the lid I sprayed it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol.
Speaking of shimmer paint…. How much shimmer paint do you need? I fill a small spray bottle 3/4 of the way and then pour in about a teaspoon of shimmer paint. That’s it! Just make sure you shake it each time before you use it.
I stamped the image from the Tags til Christmas Stamp set with Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the 1″ square punch … you can see all my tips and tricks on my video tutorial.
p.s. I’m going to be giving away the sample I made during the filming of my video tutorial. If you would like to enter to win … please leave a comment on this post and I’ll draw a winner on Monday (the name will be announced on my Monday post).
Anyone that purchases a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping) on my Stampin’ Up! website will receive a kit to make one of these Tags Til Christmas Altoid Tin Gift Card Holders. And ….. you’ll receive a kit for every $50 you order (before tax and shipping).
In addition …. if your order reaches $150 … you’ll receive Four kits (instead of three) + hostess benefits ($25 in free Stampin’ Up! product).

Happy Thanksgiving & have fun shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!!
My card today is one that I created this morning and I guess you could say it’s my Thanksgiving card this year.
I used the Seasonal Sayings stamp set that can be found in the Holiday Catalog on page 34. I stamped it with Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and then cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. (Don’t you love the framelits?)
The paper is the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper also in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog on page 28.
Before I attached the greeting to the card with Stampin Dimensionals I added the More Mustard Brads on each end. You can find the More Mustard brads in the Regals on page 174 of the main Stampin Up! catalog.
Here’s a dirty version …… sponging on the edges with More Mustard ink. I also used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack with the Paper Piercing Tool and left off the brads.
I’ve been working on my Chic n Scratch Photo Gallery the past two days and I took a few minutes to look back at some of my older projects …..and ….. it reminded me that 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 cards have always been my most favorite. They’re simple quick and easy (do all those words mean the same thing?) and are so much easier to make!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be updating my Photo Galleries with more recent photos ..the ones you see there now were transferred from my old blog. I can’t wait to have all my photos in one location!!!
Here’s the Stampin Up! supply list for my Thanks is for giving Card:
