Day 9 of the 24 Crafts of Christmas

Hi, Guys,
Happy Friday!! I can not believe it is Friday already! I hope you guys have been enjoying your day! I finally was able to get my hair cut today.  My hair dresser retired so I have been looking for someone and I think I finally found her.  I loved her energy and so positive.  It was really starting to drive me crazy with my hair being longer.  I like it to be around the top of my shoulders and when it gets longer it gets heavy in my pony tail.  I love to wear my hair in a pony tail all the time.
So I have told you guys how much I love my Stampin' Up team in the past.  We have such a great group who support each other.  Well I follow another demonstrators blog which is http://thefancystamper.blogspot.com/ and she is super nice.  I am trying to help her with a follow and I have been commenting on some of her posts.  Well I didnt realize one of the post I comentted on she was giving away a Stampin Up stamp set.  I really didnt want to win cause I figured that is a good way to pick up a new customer.  After messaging her back and forth she insisted on giving me the freeby.  So that was awesome and super nice of her, I was having such a "one of those kind of days".  So if you guys get a chance to check her out and follow her blog too.  This is why I am so glad I joined Stampin' Up and especially this team.  
I also forgot to tell you guys I picked a winner on my youtube giveaway.  You guys were to coment on the giveaway video and I would randomly pick a winner.  Three people commented so I decided to give all three a prize.  They should of received their packages by today so hopefully they enjoy it.
I also did a quick craft today.  This is great for a movie bucket.  I took a package of popcorn
and instead of putting it in your movie bucket plain, you can wrap it to give it that little something extra.  I love details and I think the details with something makes a hugh difference.
I used This Christmas Designer Series Specialty Paper (order here), Cherry Cobbler Card Stock (order here), Very Vanilla Card Stock (order here), Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad (order here), Hang Your Stockings Stamp Set (order here), Stitched Shape Framelits (currently unavailable), Layering Circle Framelits which are currently on sale for $17.50 regularly $35.00 (order here) and snail adhesive (order here).  I cut my This Christmas paper 7 by 8 and just wrapped it around the popcorn bag.  I used some snail adhesive to glue it down.  I then used the third largest circle framelit and the second smallest stitched framelit.  These would look so cute in a popcorn basket.  You could also wrap the box candy you can get in a movie theather, walmart sells these for 98 cents.  You could have everything match, it would look so awesome.
Well I hope you enjoyed the craft today.  This 24 days of crafts are keeping me on my toes.  So far so good, lol.  I am hoping to get back to my POUND class tomorow at the gym.  I have not been to class in a week and 1/2 and its making me crazy.  If you never heard of  POUND, google it, it is so much fun and makes you feel like a super awesome rockstar.  I hope to try to tidy up my craft room a bit too and provide you guys with a new craft tomorow.  Happy Friday!!!

  1. That is such a cute idea!! I know because I just made a bunch of them for quick cute gifts, and believe me, people really love them. The same idea works well for those super thick Hershey bars that are on sale at Target for a buck right now. Super cute and nice and affordable!
    Thank you for saying all those nice things about me, Christine! I am so happy to know another person on our team a little better than just the small talk on our Facebook page. I look forward to meeting you one day at one of the Stampin' 'Up! events!!
    By the way, I did NOT have that stamp set so I just ordered it. As soon as I get it, I will mail it right out to you. I tried to get them to send it directly to you but I couldn't because it was a Demonstrator order. I am still learning what I can and can't do on the demonstrator's website lol!
    The stamp set: Lift Me UP! One of your favorites, right?? Yay, it is on the way. I figure it will be here when I get back from my trip and I will get it right out to you, I promise.
    Thank you again for all your help with my blog and for being a good Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friend!

    1. I like the Candy Bar idea too!! Thank you Deborah and you did not have to special order anything I would of loved what ever you picked for me, but I am very excited about that Stamp Set. You are too kind and It really was my pleasure in helping. I too hope we meet up at an event one of these days :) We need more of people lifting each other up instead of constantly dragging each other down. I am glad we have became Stampin' Up Demonstrator Friends too. Enjoy your trip
