More Shoebox Share

As I mentioned in my last post, I have some projects to share from a recent shoebox swap. The first is a card created by Edith Hulsmann that used the Big Shot and an embossing folder to create a one-of-a-kind wreath. Fabulous!!

The next one is a gift card holder created by Susi Brunk. The Cherry Cobbler portion slides out, opens and holds a standard gift card.

And the last one was created by my upline Sherrie Thomas and features the fun treat cups to simulate a snow globe.

I hope you liked the projects as much as I did! Thanks for stopping by!

Shoebox Swap Share

My upline hosted a shoebox swap on Sunday and I loved all the projects we made! I'll be sharing them over the next few days. To start it off, I'm sharing my project which features new fabric offered in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

And the next card is from fellow demonstrator Charissa May-Riley and features a Level 1 hostess set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by and check back in for some more shares in the coming days!

Gearing up for the holidays...

Well, I'm certainly in Christmas mode - at least in my cardmaking, that is! I have vowed to be better prepared this holiday season and not be scrambling to pull together my Christmas cards. I'm happy to report that I'm about half-way done!

I have a new card to share, featuring the wonderful ala carte Dasher stamp. If you haven't heard or seen, Stampin' Up! has a line of single stamps all for under $10 each! There are 16 in the Idea Book & Catalog and 3 in the current Holiday Mini Catalog so check them out!!

To create the scallop flower behind Dasher, I simply used the Fancy Flower punch and trimmed off pairs of petals that are placed around the circle's edge. It's a great way to get more mileage from that punch :-)

Thanks for stopping by!


Stamps: Dasher, Four the Holidays
Cardstock: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: scallop edge border punch, fancy flower punch, 2-1/2" circle punch, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Jolly Holiday designer series paper, stampin' dimensionals

Friday Frenzy!

Whew, it's been a while since I've blogged. As much as I love this time of year and the changing of the seasons, my allergies have been in high gear for far too long! I've been chilling out most of the day trying to lay low so I can finally kick these allergies. So since I've been hanging out in the bedroom tonight, I thought I'd take part of a sketch challenge. While blog surfing, I came across the Sketch Frenzy Friday and used My Digital Studio to create my project. Let's see if I can upload it...

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to be back to my normal blogging schedule soon :-)
