Cards - Christmas & Winter

Holidays are upon us! Yay!

Boo!  Be Grateful!  Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year!

Wow!  Here they come!  I am very excited this year about all of these Holidays and more!  But first lets see what my Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering did on September 22nd!  We made a tea light Halloween lantern of sorts and two Fall cards that came from the August Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up!  I fixed Beef Stroganoff to try and get us in the Autumn Chill mood.  But low and behold it was like 78 that day!  Oh well, we still had fun crafting and filling our tummys. 

(You may have to click on the photos to see all of each one.  For some reason, my blog isn't capturing the full photo...eek!)  We always have so much fun at these gatherings.  I wish I could hold them more than once a month, but because I pretty much provide everything for them, it is just too exhausting.  The ladies love it just as much as I do though.

October 1st is bringing on some new things at Stampin' Up!  Demonstrators will get to Pre-Order the BRAND SPANKING NEW Paper Trimmer!  We are all so used to calling it the Stampin' Trimmer, but it is no longer referred to as that!  I am going to order it and a pack of 4 extra blades to try it out!  It still will score in addition to cut, so I am thrilled about that!  Plus!  It is only $25.00!!!  Cheaper than our last one.  Bargain, Bargain, Bargain!!! Here is a sneak peak at it:

Here is a cute video showing the new Trimmer



They do not have a release date for customers yet, depending on how it goes over with DemonstratorsAnother great reason to ask me about becoming a Demonstrator!  These pre-order opportunities just keep coming!  Click on Join The Fun or Join Me for more information on how to become one of my team members!  I would love to help you achieve your Paper Crafting dreams!

Another exciting announcement is October and November's Paper Pumpkin kits are Special Edition Coordinating Kits called Winter Wonders.  If you have never indulged in Paper Pumpkin, now would be the ideal time!  Subscribe by October 10th to get the October kit and why don't you try a 3 month subscription so you are automatically subscribed for November and December kits.  The last few Paper Pumpkin kits have been so cute!  They are changing things up a bit and improving them as per subscribers comments...and boy are they fun now!  They come with everything you need to make cards, a project or use your imagination!  Many post their Paper Pumpkin alternatives on line for you to see and try out.  It's worth a go!  $22.00/month.  Just click on this link www.paperpumpkin.com to subscribe and learn all about it!

Okay!  One more announcement and I will show you a card I have been working on!  October 1st once again, Stampin' Up! is offering the Pre-Order for Demonstrators the Christmastime Is Here Suite.  Then November 1st it will be available to you the customer.  It is a Christmas Rose and it is a SUITE, so it includes two stamp sets, dies, ribbon, specialty designer paper, gold glitter enamel dots AND a bracelet!  Wowza!  The entire suite will run $112.50 but it is availabe separately or a bundle option (2 stamps sets and 2 coordinating die sets) for $61.00.  Here is a picture of the Suite and several samples made by Stampin' Up!

Creating With Paper - Baby It's Cold Here!

Michelle here wishing everyone a Happy Saturday!  

The weather here in So. Cal has been what we call "chilly".  Don't laugh, because in San Diego, well when it gets below 70, we are cold!  Plus the nights really are getting down to the low 50's so we are putting the flannel sheets on and a couple nights have had to use the heater! 

In keeping with trying to stay warm, I made a little sweater card out of our wonderful Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  That is one folder I have used a lot and love the results every time!  At a craft show recently, I saw a cute tree decoration that was a sweater and had to get it!  Our Den tree has quite a collection of cute little sweater ornaments, but they are not in the Ugly Sweater category that is for sure.  Anyway, got home one day and planned on making a card out of one of the little ornaments that I purchased!

Sweater
It really reminds me of my college days - turtlenecks and belted sweaters..I am dating myself!  Here is what I used to create my sweater card...

So, I wanted to keep you all posted on our massive decorating project we undertake every year.  Here is a couple pictures from last night when Bill (my super creative hubby) turned on our lights.  Granted, there was more being done today, but he had the majority of the lights up.  Here are a couple pictures - hope I am not boring you - just so proud of my hubby - he works so hard doing this every year and it is mostly for the children of the neighborhood and our Grandkids.  All the neighbors ask for it every year, and he just keeps doing it bigger and better every year.  I tease him sometimes that we are on the verge of tacky...nahh...

That is all for today - tomorrow I will have another cute project to show you and will show off my Kitchen tree...did I say we go all out?  Yep, we do, but have a blast doing it!

Be kind to one another and make the time to have fun and do some Creating With Paper!

Creating With Paper what fun!

Michelle here with a couple quick little things that came out of the craft room this week.

My first attempt at using the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight framelits was not only so fun, but I think a huge success!  Here is my card..

If you are on the fence about this bundle take it from me - don't be!!!  I almost passed it by until I saw some absolutely gorgeous examples on Pinterest and other Stampin' Up! demo sites.  It is an amazing bundle! 

Then I made a Pumpkin Witch for my friend who owns the salon I go to for my Mani/Pedi's.  Lili used to live across the street and she has become such a good friend, I was so sad when she moved.  At least I still get to see her twice a month.  He salon is decorated in Silver and Orange, so I tried to keep with her theme colors and still make her a Halloween display.  This looks just like her (her likes in the decorating venue - not physically (ha!)).

Well that is it for today.  Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone and remember to make time for some Creating With Paper!
