Holiday Catalog Carry Over items….

Hi Friends- I’m getting lots of questions asking what items are carrying over from the Holiday Catalog. Stampin’ Up! did something really nice this year, they published the items that are carrying over right in the back of the new Occasions Catalog! While I can’t post the catalog until January 6th, I can let you know what IS going to be available:

Let me know if you need your own copy of our 2015 Occasions mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration mini catalog. My order just arrived and I’m happy to get them out to all my customers.

Also- if you are free this afternoon, swing by and see me at my last craft fair/vendor fair today from 1:30-4:30 pm at Judson Meadows Assistive Living Facility, located at 39 Swaggertown Road, Scotia, NY 12302 (this is close to the Rt. 50 end). There will be over 10 other vendors/crafters there with their goods. I hope you can make it! I have some of Santa’s magic keys available- a must have for every child’s home who has ever asked “but we don’t have a chimney, how does Santa get inside?” there is a cute poem and punch art Santa suit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Happy Friday!

It’s a Cherry Cobbler Christmas

Hi Friends! I hope you had a super great weekend! I know I sure did!

I wanted to share with you the two cards my stamping friends are going to make tonight at my first Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Class of the season! I didn’t intend to do both cards using Cherry Cobbler blendabilities, but I somehow either loaned, or lost, my circle framelits, so I had to come up with another card quick. (if you borrowed them please let me know as I am losing my mind over it!) thanks.



The cardinal card was a “CASE” (Copy And Share Everything) from another talented demonstrator named Pam (I goggled her and found her facebook page called Pam’s Paper Playhouse). I made some slight changes to use the products I had available for the class. Both cards feature our new blendabilities (alcohol markers) and boy, do they just make all the difference in the world! The Joyful Christmas poinsetta stamp set will retire for good on Wednesday August 27th, sniff, sniff … so I had to use it one more time.





Here are the supplies I used to make the cardinal card:




I did make a “mask” using a post-it note of the cardinal, so when I sponged the Lost Lagoon ink all over the whisper white paper, I didn’t want it on the bird.  It was really fun to make this card, I hope my friends like it too. Thanks to Pam for creating such a great masterpiece!


Next up is my favorite stamp set from the 2013 Holiday Catalog, and it has been on the “Carry Over List” and will retire on Wednesday August 27th. Here’s the list if you want to see what else is going away (there is a super nice Hanukkah stamp set in there!)    Carry-Over Holiday List




Here are the supplies I used for this card:




My Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack is the last Monday of the month from now to Thanksgiving. It is 10 cards per night, for $20 and as you can see there are two designs, stampers will make 5 of each one. I have room in the September, October and November class, so if you’d like to sign up- contact me for registration information. RSVP and payment is required at least 5 days before the event.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and if you need to purchase any of these, or any other items, please remember to use the August Hostess Code if you do online shopping with me: YA7CNZND
(this will save you on shipping costs and it will come directly to you!)
Have a great day!

Valentine’s Bash was a Blast!

I forgot to show you pictures from our fun Valentine’s Day Bash on Monday! (I’m sorry to admit, I’m getting more forgetful).

valentine1 valentine2 valentine3 valentine4

I had a full house here- for me that is 8 stampers in my craft room. But I forgot to take photos of the second table, they made the cards and treat holder first, and I didn’t get any action shots of them. Sorry Amy, Tatiana, Amy and Mary Beth! (Remind me next time, unless you’re camera shy).

We really had a blast making these banners! I’m sorry to say they are not a current item. I did stock up on some banner kits in December before they went away from the Holiday Catalog.
I probably should have ordered more, dare I hope they make it into the new catalog in June???

I’m thinking of doing a “SPRING” banner class, what do you think? Would you be interested? Trying to figure out future banner classes (and other classes).

Holiday Carry-Over List is Here….

Hi there stamping friends! How are you doing? Did you get your Christmas and Holiday cards done in time? I think I just made it. Have been skimping on sleep again the past few days, I vow every year to start cards earlier but I never seem to do it. I think I’m going to do a dozen cards a month starting in January- what do you think of that idea? Who’s with me??

Speaking of holiday cards, you might not realize that we are down to just the last few days of our current Holiday 2013 mini catalog. It expires on January 2, 2014. I’m thrilled to say that Stampin’ Up! has created this “Carry-Over” PDF file for you to print and save. (I like to keep mine right in with my current specials/promotions ring).  I’m so thrilled to see the Joyful Christmas top the list. It is by far one of my most favorite stamp sets in the whole catalog. I might actually make it for some winter birthdays as well, since the poinsettia is a winter flower, not just a Christmas icon, what do you think?

Holiday Carry Over List

So what is not carrying over? everything not on this list, and items that didn’t make it in the Occasions 2014 Catalog that launches on January 3rd, 2014. (We do know that the burlap ribbon and silver ribbon trim, along with the metallic gold and silver ink pads are carrying over). So, if you loved some other set, (like the adorable “Snow Day” where you can build your own snowman)- now is a great time to order it- think of it as a gift to yourself! Or contact me after Christmas and let me know if you need anything before it’s gone. Here are my three favorite cards I made with the Snow Day stamp set. Recognize the third one? It was featured at my Columbus Day Stamp a Stack event.

I’m equally sad that Calm Christmas is not on this carry over list-I just love that dove and “Peace on Earth” sentiment, I used that a lot in my workshops and card events this fall, here are just a few of my favorites.

Well, I better get back to work- I’m grading final exams- I can’t believe grades are due by Monday 12/23… and I had a big group of 30 students this semester. I can’t believe how quick this semester went!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great night.
