Cling Stamp Tips and Birthday Cheer

Hi Guys,

Happy Sunday!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  The weekends always seem to go too fast right?  My oldest son had a Boy Scout survival campout this weekend.  He spent Friday night in a warm toasty cabin and Saturday he spent the night outside in a shelter his troop had to make.  It was so cold this weekend too.  I was so worried about him even know I knew he was going to be totally fine.  The temperatures were zero to -4 at times.  The boys could go inside the cabin anytime they were too cold and a few of the boys slept in the cabin both nights.  He is home and took a 5-hour nap.  It really wore him out.  

His eye-lashes were covered in ice.  I would have had to sleep in that toasty warm cabin.  I love the heat.

I was able to get into my craft room a little bit between playing with my younger son.  I am still working on a couple of Christmas presents… I know!  I always try to get a jump on the holidays and It seems every year I always am behind.  I was hoping to finish these this weekend but I don’t think i will.

So I had to make a birthday card for my husband (today is his birthday) and this is what I came up with.

I used the Birthday Cheer Cling Stamp Set out of the new occasions catalog.  This set also has dies that you can bundle and save 10% off when bundled.  I did not use the dies on this card but the dies are super cute.  There are two edgelits and a cupcake cut out and a tag.  Here is what they look like .

The best part is if you buy this bundle and add just $5.00, you can pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Have you seen all the free products you can choose?  Here is the pdf of the Sale-A-Bration catalog for you to view.  If you would like a physical Occasion’s, Sale-A-Bration or the Annual Catalog just fill out my contact form with your mailing address and I will get them right out in the mail to you.  Click here for my Contact Form.

Happy Sunday!!!!

Happy New Year!!


Hi Guys!!

Happy Tuesday!!  How are you guys doing?  How were your holidays?  I hope everyone had the best holiday season ever.

Our holiday was hectic but lots of fun.  Our family was together and we made many memories.  I actually took the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas off and it was very nice to not have to worry about posting and creating videos.  I did miss making my video’s though.  I am happy to be back at video making.

My puppies love having their picture taken in front of the tree with there reindeer antlers…

Both my boys had holiday concerts and I always have them stand in front of the tree and take their pictures.  They are so handsome.

So now that the holiday season is gone have you had a chance to take down your holiday decorations yet?  I finally have put all mine away until I went to the store and seen the 90 percent off sale.  I did make a video today showing you guys what I do with my Christmas cards.  I love to recycle them every year.  I make tags and then save them to use for the following year.  It’s such a great way to recycle them.

I used my card scraps, ribbons, embellishments, dies, and punches.  Depending on your card you can get several tags out of one card.  I will leave the video on how I made these at the end of this post.

Here are some of the Stampin’ Up! products I used to make these tags.

Thanks, guys for taking the time to read my blog!

Happy Tuesday
