The 24 Crafts of Christmas

Hi, Guys!!

Happy Thursday!!  I hope everyone is having a great day. I was able to get a bunch of stuff accomplished today while everyone was at work and school. I was even able to get a video done. I am going to try to do a Christmas craft for the next 24 days. I really will try to accomplish this but not sure how realistic this will be for me. Today I made a super easy card using my new Pine Bough embossing folder I just recently purchased from Stampin Up. I love it and it’s on sale. You can order it here

This card was so simple to make and looks so pretty.  I will link the video on how to make it.  Here is a list of all the things I used:
Garden Green Cardstock,  Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, You can purchase This Christmas Cardstock pack it has Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White which would be just as pretty.  Pine Bough Embossing Folder, Hang your Stocking Stamp set, Stitched Shaped Framelits (currently can not order these but you will be able to order these in the future), White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Versa Mark Ink, Old Olive Ink, Stampin Up Dimensionals, Snail adhesive, and a heating tool

I hope you enjoy the video.  Happy Thursday!!

Shaker Ornament

Hi, Guys,
Happy Tuesday!!  I really hope you have been enjoying your day.  This is my 3rd blog in a row, wow I don’t know how I had the time.  Oh yeah the kids and husband were at work and school today.  I even was able to film a video and only was interrupted once by the dogs barking at the mail man.  Every day they bark at him, you would think they would be use to him by now.  So I was able to get some of the tideous house work done today and craft too.  I am so glad I was able to finally get a video done of the Shaker Ornament.  Here is a picture of the ones I made

They were quite challenging for me and I have been working on a video for the last week and 1/2.  I love how they turned out but these are the last ones I will make unless I find an easier way to do these.  I used my Cricut to cut the circles but you could you your cuttlebug, or bigshot with the circle layering framelit dies  through Stampin’ Up.  Click here to purchase these.

I love to try all kinds of Crafts but sometimes some are not worth the hassle for me.  I hope you guys like the video and if you have any tips or tricks on how to create these differently please let me know because I would love some feedback.  Happy Tuesday!!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve 🦃

Hi, Guys!!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is enjoying their pre Thanksgiving festivities!  I have been busy lately and I’ve been trying to film a video these past few days but I keep getting interrupted so I’ve given up for now. My kids had today off of school and my husband is on vacation this week so I haven’t had a lot of time for “me” things.
I have been working on a Stampin Up donation basket for my sons Boy Scout Troop. His Troop is having a Pancake breakfast this Sunday to raise money for Blizzard Camp. This is a winter camp where they can earn lots of merit badges and have lots of fun. Here is a picture of the basket:

I also put my business cards into it so maybe I will get my first customer soon. I’m very excited to be selling Stampin Up products and share what I know with all you guys!!!  Did you guys put an order in on Monday with the 24 hour sale?  I sure did and don’t forget to take advantage of the sales going on now with Stampin Up. The sale runs through November 28.  Cyber Monday the 28 will be a 24 hour flash sale check out all the specials just click Up top on the link. There are some awesome things on sale right now and some are retiring so once they are gone they are gone for good. Don’t forget to use my hostess code 3TAGWKDE with any orders less that $150. If your order is more than $150 you will get your own hostess rewards. Everyone who uses the hostess code gets a gift from me. 😊. 

I needed to make a birthday card for my mom so I tried a waterfall card for the first time. I really liked how it turned out and I will do a video on one sometime soon. I also made two more Santa Cam ornaments. I will be giving one to my sister in law tomorrow and I can’t wait for her to get it. Here is some pictures of my card and ornaments:

I hope you guys have a Happy Turkey 🦃 Day tomorrow!!  Enjoy your shopping if anyone is going out on Black Friday!!

Softly Falling Embossing Folder

Hi, Guys!!!
Happy Saturday!!  I really hope you guys have been enjoying your day!  I have enjoyed the day, it was beautiful out today with highs in the 60’s.  The weather is going to flip tomorrow and its going to be in the 30’s with Lake Effect Snow up to 14 inches in some areas….Yuck!  It’s so crazy how the weather can change so drastically and quickly.  Looks like i may be getting some crafting done.  My plan is to glitter some ornaments and I will make a video showing you guys how i do it.  I was able to create a little something today.  I received a Stampin Up order yesterday and I ordered the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  Oh My Goodness I love it.  I have never owned a sizzix folder before I have only bought the Cricut Cuttlebug folders because i have the Cuttlebug and did not know that some of the folders would fit in my Cuttlebug.  Just make sure you measure the front of your Cuttlebug where you run the folders through and you can order those size folders.  The Softly Falling measures at 6 by 6 so it fits my Cuttlebug, some of the older Cuttlebugs measure at 5.  I do plan on getting a Big Shot someday.  I’m trying to build up my supplies.  So anyways, back to this folder, it is awesome.  Here is the card I created with it today.

So I used Garden Green Card Stock (order here) for the card base which measures out 5 1/2 by 4 1/4, Whisper White Card Stock (order here) was measured at 5 1/4 by 4 and was used with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder (order here) The tree, presents, pot, and the star were cut with Perfect Pines Framelits Dies (order here) the stamp set used was Peaceful Pines (order here) the ink pads used were Garden Green (order here), Cherry Cobbler (order here), and versa mark (order here).  Copper Foil Sheets (order here)  were used for the pot, and the star.  Copper embossing powder (order here) was used on the presents. You will also need the Heat tool (order here) and snail adhesive (order here)  and Stampin’ Dimensionals (order here)I just love the way this one came out.  Don’t forget to use the Hostess Code 3TAGWKDE when placing an order and you will receive a little something from me in the mail 😊.  Please DO NOT use my hostess code if you spend $150.00 or more because you will earn your own hostess benefits. I really can not wait to have someone order from me and become my customer.  I have a little something special for that first order.  Anyone who places an order will always receive a hand made thank you card and you just never know when i may randomly mail you a little present in the mail. 😉  So hopefully I will get a video together tomorrow and maybe i might be able to do another blog post.  Hope you guys have a Happy Saturday!!!

Stitched Shape Framelits Tags and Card

Hi, Guys!!
Happy Thursday!!!  I hope everyone had a great Thursday!
I managed to get a few things accomplished today which is always good.  It seems to always be something.  You get caught up on laundry but then your kitchen counters are buried, you know how the endless cycle of cleaning goes. lol
Today was my monthly meeting with my Stampin Up Leader and My Pink Stampers.  I have been learning so much since joining the Stampin Up family.  I want to share and create with everyone I meet.  I just love crafting so much.  So I took so much away from our team meeting today.  If you guys are ever thinking of being a demonstrator I so recommend just doing it.  If you sign up under me you will get gifts of appreciation from me and not only that you will also get gifts from Robyn of mypinkstamper.  You also will get your demonstrator discount of 20%.  In our meeting today she told us that if you reach Silver level and you are under me She will send you a gift of all silver products from the current catalog. When the new catalog comes out she may do something different. The value is around $60 to $70.  Plus you will receive something from me.  You will also be part of the pink stamper team which is awesome.  They are so helpful and we have a lot of fun.  If you are not at that level yet that’s ok too you can just be a customer and you will get gifts from me 😀 I can not wait to get my first customer I have such a surprise for them.  If you are interested in receiving a free catalog please contact me on my contact me button. 
So I did get to craft some today.  I used my Stitched Shapes Framelits and I just love these.  They are currently on Back Order so if you want them I HIGHLY recommend getting these today. If you order from me use hostess code 3TAGWKDE and you will receive a little something from me 😊. Please DO NOT use my hostess code if you spend $150.00 or more because you will earn your own hostess benefits. Here is what i created today with them today:

They make awesome gift tags.  I will be using these on everything.  The best part is they are so quick to make.  Here is a list of all supplies I used on this

Dutch Fold Card

Hi, Guys!!

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a good day!  I started my day sending the kiddos off to school and thought i would get so much done.  I always think this way and it never seems to work out that way lol.  If anyone has seen the Disney movie Up I am so like Doug.  I think most of us feel like Doug at some point.  So I have about an hour left before kiddos come home from school so i will get nothing accomplished but this blog post.  I am fine with that cause until my kids and husband move out, the house will always be messy.  
So I am so excited to share with you this Dutch Fold Card I made last night.  I love it so much and think you guys will too.  I have made a video on how to make this card. I will share the video here but before i do I want to let you guys know that I have used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and right now these are on back order.  The estimated date for these are November 28th so just keep that in mind.  You can certainly make this with out them but I do highly recommend ordering these Framelits.  I will be using them quite regularly.  I will be sharing a video in a few days on how to make a Shaker Card too.  Hope you have a Happy Tuesday!!!

Making your Cricut mats sticky again

Hi, Guys,
Happy Sunday!!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  My weekend was busy with two birthday parties.  My littlest niece turned One, well in a few more days it will be official but this weekend we celebrated her birthday and my other niece turned 12.  I can not believe how quickly time goes by. 
So today I decided it was time to help my 12 year old do a very thorough cleaning of his room.  Boy that was a fun 5 hours or so.  It is always fun because mom does 92% of the work, while my son plays with everything he forgot he ever had.  He did manage to get rid of some stuff and I have started garage sale boxes.  I label everything with a price tag, I buy a roll of the blue painters tape and a sharpie, then everything goes in a box.  When spring/summer comes I just need to set everything up and I’m all set. 
So I really didn’t get to do anything fun in my craft room today.  I was itching to craft all day but i had to finish up his room and then get some other house work done.  I did manage to clean all my Cricut mats and I made a video showing you how I clean and re stick them.  So I will leave you that video to watch.  I hope you enjoy.  Have a Happy Sunday!!!

Shaker Birthday Card with Tin of Cards Stamp Set

Hi, Guys!!
Happy Friday and Happy Veteran’s Day.   A big Thank you to all our past, present and future service men and women.  You are truly appreciated each and every day.
So today I tried to film a video several times throughout the day however my children had the day off of school so I was interrupted several times throughout the day.  So I made two birthday cards both for my nieces who’s birthday parties are tomorrow.  One card that I was trying to do a video on is a shaker card pictured here

I just love how this turned out.  I made it with my Cricut machine and cut craft foam for the first time.  I always get a little nervous when I cut something other than card stock from my Cricut even though I know it is made to cut all kinds of stuff.  I will do a video this week showing you how to do a shaker card.  The other card I made was very simple but loved how it turned out too.  Here is a picture of that one too

 Both of these cards I embossed and I have to tell you guys that I have been embossing for years.  I love what it adds to a project.  I always have had an issue with the embossing powder sticking everywhere.  I have tried rubbing a dryer sheet to prevent static but it never worked I kinda just did my best to try to remove any unwanted powder, I often used a paint brush.  I ordered the embossing buddy from Stampin Up and it works Awesome.  I have not had one issue with embossing powder sticking anywhere other than where it is supposed to stick. You can order it here

I also used Happy Birthday, and the border from the Stamp Set Tin of Cards from Stamping up.  You can order it here

What a great universal Stamp Set Tin of Cards is.  I just received an order from Stampin Up the other day and I am super excited to start creating with it.  I ordered the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies which are so awesome.  I will do a video shortly with a project or two using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  When you order Stitched Shapes Framelits you will get 25% of a select stamp set through November 30.  You can order here  
Happy Friday!!

My first post.

Hi Guys!!!

This is my first post.  I just recently became a Stampin Up Demonstrator and figured I would create a blog so I can share with all of you guys my crafty creations.  I do love Stampin Up products but I will create other crafts as well.  I hope you guys follow along on my journey with me.
Let me tell you a little bit about me.  I am a stay at home mom with Two busy boys.  They are 8 and 12 years old so we are over the little toddler stage.  I am enjoying them so much over the years and they are turning into such fine boys.  Don’t get me wrong there are days when I look at them and wonder what the heck is going on.  Our life is chaotic at times, heck most times it is.  My husband works like crazy so I can stay at home and take care of the kids and house.  I love that I am in this place but it wasn’t like this always so I really do appreciate everything I have right now.
So crafting is my outlet, my sanity, and my happy place.  I have been crafting for over 20 years and learned allot along the way and still am learning every day.  I love to teach people crafty things and decided it was time to share my love with everyone instead of just bugging family all the time.  I love Stampin Up products and have purchased my fair share of products from them over the years.  I have consistently followed MyPinkStamper for 7 or 8 years now and decided to join her team of Pink Stampers through Stampin Up.  It has been one of the best things i have done for me in a very long time.  I just joined a few months ago and have no customers as of yet but that is ok.  I am doing this for me as a hobby and hopefully, people will follow me and learn from me and we can have fun together.  If someone buys from me that’s just a bonus.  My Pink Stamper has inspired me over these past 7/8 years in so many ways and I want to give back.
So that, in a nutshell, is why I am blogging.  I will post my creations on here and give you details on how everything was made.  So I hope you follow along with me.  This is the first video I have done ever so I hope you enjoy.  Thanks, guys and have a happy Wednesday.
