Classy Christmas card using Carols of Christmas Card Builder Framelits

Woo hoo!  I’m back from the Stampin’ Up Incentive trip to Thailand – feeling refreshed (once the jet lag wore off! 😉 ) and excited for the upcoming Holiday catalog!  Winter is my favorite season, filled with twinkly lights, beautiful scenes, and an extra bit of kindness to go around.  Before I left for Thailand, Stampin’ Up announced an amazing starter kit promotion that gives you an extra $72 in bonus goodies when you join in July!  One of those items was the sneak peek stamp set “Carols of Christmas”.  So, when it was time for our Fun n’ Crafty … Read More

NOPE! I remembered some gifts I still need to get, my Christmas cards need to go in the mail, and I’m still cramming for the kids joint birthday party tomorrow instead of doing last minute prep before chaos descends on the house.   And while I could spend Sunday trying to get caught up, its my birthday and … Read More

Between the “don’t want to use them up” and trying to figure out where to put a 3D embellishment (though it is little so, it is still possible to mail), I just kept admiring them on my desk.  Come on, admit it… you have something like that in your craft goodies too. 🙂 … Read More
