Christmas in July

While visiting Linda one of the highlights was being able to get a look at some of her creations.
This is one of the cards she created at a local group gathering
and she shared it with me! Yippee!
I quickly made a template and came home and
had to try out an idea I had for a Christmas card.

Using the new Christmas DSP 'Letters to Santa" pg 186 #122349 $10.95
and a treat cup filled with sparkly bling. I also used the Quick Accents for letters to Santa
on pg 187 #122369- $9.95.
Stamp Sets: Open Sea ( for the earth) inside the treat cup surrounded by a die cut off the
NEW Pennant die, Delightful Dozen for the embossed sentiment, and Merry & Type hailed the "peace on earth stamp" with the decorative label punch behind it.

Yes, it folds flat and fits into an A2 envelope.
We will be making this card in one of my upcoming classes, so check out my class schedule

Hope you like it!

Getting Ready for the Red Hat Ladies!

I went back home this week and spent some time with my good friend Linda.
We had fun getting ready for her workshop with a group of Red Hat Ladies that will be visiting her craft table soon. We made this cute bonnet for them as a table candy favor using the empty SU embellishment containers, the large Sizzix scallop, Red Glitter paper, concord crush, and their logo on top. I think they turned out very cute. We wanted to share with them all the amazing ways you can use paper crafting to make favors for their functions.

Needless to say there are quite a few guests coming and we were pooped at the end of the night.

My buddy Linda is very talented and I always enjoy visiting her and getting my batteries creatively recharged!! She also has a super awesome craft room. So if you are ever in the Brandon/Tampa area look her up at
Thanks Linda for a great time.
