Yes, yes, yes, I know I say everything is my favorite, but when it comes to the new Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB – free item – #127540) I’m definitely in love! It’s got great colors, and fabulous patterns. You can see it in my online store right now, or you can check it out here on the Sale-A-Bration freebie flyer (get a selection free with every $50 you order!).
The Soda Pop Tops (see them online – 129388) are too much fun — and easy to use. They’re a nice and pliable metal, so you can squish them flat-ish with your Big Shot. They’ll still cost an extra $0.20 to mail, but they’re SO worth it!
There are three SAB items on this card — see if you can spot them:
- Vintage Verses stamp set (see it - 129636)
- Vine Street Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (see it – 130492)
- Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (see it – 127540)
And then a couple of fun new products from the Spring Catalog:
- Soda Pop Tops (see them online – 129388)
- Collage Curios stamp set (see it - 129102) – which coordinates with the 1″ Circle Punch (see it – 119868)
Plus I included a smidge of the Silver Glimmer Paper (see it - 124005), which you can order OR get for free when your order or party totals $150 or more. Since Stampin’ Up! is celebrating 25 years this year, they wanted to share a bit of silver with you for their anniversary!

My friend Becky Strater made these adorable Gift Card holders as a twist on our Stamp Club project from earlier this month (the Punch Art Elf). I loved them so much that I wanted to share them with you. I know Christmas is over, but so (almost!) is the Holiday Catalog. TODAY is the last day to order!
So if you love these little trees, they were cut using the Scentsational Seasons Framelits (love them – see them online – 127814) and today is the last day to order these shapes and the coordinating stamp set.
Did you see how Becky made the 3d trees? She cut out 3 tree shapes from the Framelits: 2 of designer series paper (remove the trunks) and one from Old Olive card stock. Then she folded the designer paper trees in half and glued the shapes together.
Pretty neat, eh? If you’d like the directions for the Two Tags Die gift card holder, they’re here on my blog.
Don’t forget — last day to order these shaped framelits is today!! While you’re at it, be sure to check out the Clearance Rack for extra bonus bargains, while supplies last!

Have you seen the 15 NEW items on my online Stampin’ Up! Clearance Rack? They were added yesterday — so shop now for best selection, since items are available “while supplies last”.
One of my fav items? The Heart Sweet Treat Cups! And on the Clearance Rack, they’re only $0.59 for a box of 12. Use them to make treats for a classroom or for friends & neighbors. Everyone loves a treat!
Here’s a fun way to use your Heart Sweet Treat Cups (Clearance Rack item, only $0.59 for 12 – see them online) and the matching Full Heart Punch (see it online). Did you know the Sweet Treat Cups have the adhesive on them already? Yeah, I know!! They could hardly be easier!!
These use the Scallop Squares Duo Die (120903) for the background, as well as the Sweetheart stamp set (it’s on the Clearance Rack! see it online – 120780). The tiny hearts are punched from the Red Glimmer Paper (see it online) which looks even BETTER in person. Absolutely gorgeous, and a little goes a long way.
The sticks are lollipop sticks from any big box store — just add a little flag banner with a heart, adhere them to the back and you’re set!
One last tip on the Sweet Treat Cups? Don’t overfill them. My strategy is to fill them until they look even, then remove one more M&M. (and it eat — you wouldn’t put it back in the bag, right?) But this way you’re sure there won’t be too much stress on the adhesive on the back of the Sweet Treat Cup.
Need more Sweet Treat Cup ideas? Check a few out on my blog. Remember, these are currently on the Clearance Rack, so they’re available only while supplies last!

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf at your house? Our elf is named Freddyting, and the kids love to check out his daily adventures. So this year I decided to create some Elf on the Shelf gift card holders using the Two Tags Die (see it online – 115954) and my Stampin’ Up! punches.
The gift card holder itself is simple:
- Cut Gumball Green card stock to 3-3/4″ x 7″. Score the card stock at 1/2″ and 3-3/4″. Fold into a flat tube and adhere on the tab.
- Use the Big Shot and the Two Tags Die to cut out a Real Red large tag. Cut another large tag bottom and trim at the score line. Glue to the edges of the tag to make a pocket.
- Add ribbon & Gumball Green Designer Series Pattern Paper and decorate with your elf! (click below for a larger picture)
Here are the links for the punches (gotta love the Red Glimmer Paper 121790):
- Full Heart Punch (119883)
- Ornament Punch (119847)
- Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (teeny scallop & circle) (118309)
- Modern Label Punch (119849)
- 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (cut in 1/2) (119854)
- Merry Minis Punch Pack (ornament) (126882)

Do you love My Digital Studio yet? I’ve been posting lots of ideas, and using the program at home for even more projects. But here’s one that I wanted to share for teacher ideas. I got volunteered to put a winter bulletin board together for a local school (that’s what happens when you don’t go to meetings ) so I pulled out my MDS2 and got to work!
- arrange punches on page and fill with snowflake designer paper
- print everything on Whisper White card stock
- use Dazzling Details (see it online) to add sparkle to the letter edges
After printing, I embellished the snowmen with Rhinestone Jewels (see them online). Everyone needs a little bling, right?
To pull the whole board together, I used my Big Shot die cut machine (see it online) and the Snow Flurry Die (see it online – 127813). The Silver Glimmer Paper (see it online) definitely added some gorgeous sparkle.
Finally, I cut some edges for the board from polyester batting that I had tucked away. Voila!
Want to learn more about MDS2 from Stampin’ Up!? Of course you do! It’s a fabulous program for all kinds of digital crafting – photobooks, greeting cards, classroom materials and bulletin boards! You can see some of my recent projects here on my blog.
Or you can learn more about MDS2 and what it can do for you.
Are you a teacher? Ask me how you can get the MDS software free for your entire school! Just drop me an email.
Looking for a few Christmas card ideas? Here are a bunch on my blog from past posts, but I think this deer is one of my favs. The Christmas Deer (see the set online) is new in this year’s Stampin’ Up! catalog.
Here’s another of my favs with this guy – with an alternative fold idea.
Stamps: Christmas Deer, More Merry Messages; Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso; Paper: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Vanilla Naturals, Red Glimmer Paper; Accessories: Big Shot, Two Tags Bigz Die, Real Red Satin Ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder
For my Christmas Card Stamp A Stack last evening, I wanted to pull out the Merry & Type stamp set (see it online). I love the vintage feel of the ornaments — and what says 1930′s more than houndstooth? The Houndstooth Textured Impressions Folder came in handy as a design element (see it online).
Did you see the layered border effect on the left side of the card? The vertical elements on this card are basically a series of borders, including the Champagne Glimmer Paper (see it online – a little goes a long way!) and the Scallop Edge Border Punch (see it online).

I’ve been on a “clean & simple” kick lately, and the Frosty Friends stamp set fits the bill (see it online)! This is a card that I’ve been sharing at workshops and with my Stamp Club this month, and I wanted to share it here, too.
If you haven’t used Watercolor Wonder Crayons (see them online), you’re missing out! These are yummy (okay, they *feel* yummy – I haven’t tasted them) and so simple to use to great effect.
Here’s a Stamping 101 Video Tutorial on using the crayons.

Ever wanted to break out of the Christmas box? Try something a bit different for a card? Here’s a fun alternate color scheme for a card — pink & white. With the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set, there’s no doubt the card is for Christmas. But the glittery fun colors give this set a whole different look.
The Ornament Keepsakes and coordinating Holiday Ornaments Framelits are available as a bundle – and you get both the stamps and the framelits for 15% off when you buy them together! (see the special online) Plus don’t forget about the special for October. If you’re getting the stamps and framelits, it makes even more sense to add the paper and get the Festive Piercing Pack for free! (only in October – see details)
The design of the Peace on Earth stamp from Greetings of the Season (see it online) is a perfect complement for this color set.

I love this guy! Here’s a gorgeous majestic buck with antlers curling around in elegant designs. Ah, the beauty. And then we go and hang ornaments on him. Seems like a funny way to treat a deer, but hey, it’s an effective design!
There are a few tips for this Christmas Deer card (see the set online), with a fun fold design using the Labels Collection Framelits (see them online). The card layout is based on one by Connie Fitzgerald.
For the deer background: Cut a piece of scrap paper one framelit smaller than the shape. Use it as a mask and use a Color Spritzer (new – see them online) to add a light background shading. I mixed one drop of Early Espresso Ink Refill with rubbing alcohol for the color here.
For the Early Espresso layer: Use a textured embossing folder (see them online) with the new Core’dinations Card Stock (love this stuff! — see colors online), then sand to reveal the lighter core color.
This is one of the cards from my Christmas Card Stamp A Stack last night — if you missed it, be sure to sign up for the October session! (details here online)
