2 Cards – 1 Stamp Set!

Yesterday as I was getting ready to go to work, Kirsten called and said that she was going to the Mall with the boys. Since I was going to be working at the same Mall, I met them there and had a great time with my little grandsons before I had to go to work!  We were in the Mall Playground for awhile, then while Kirsten did some shopping, I took Emmett & Silas down to the Christmas store.  We watched the Christmas display they had set up in the window – which really intrigued the boys!!  There was an elf “riding” a handmixer in a bowl of “sugar”, another one scooping out some “sugar”, one was hanging upside down from the window, and another one was “sitting and twirling” in an upside down candy cane!  It was really done well, lots to look at and fun to watch!

Speaking of Christmas…I have 2 cards to show you today – both from the same stamp set.  The one card is a Christmas card…but changing out the sentiment from the same set, it can be made into a Thank You card.  There is also another stamp “You’re Invited” that can be used for invitations of any kind.  Change out the colours, and the set can be used year round!  I love anything that can be used more than once in different ways…a great way to get your money’s worth from a stamp set!!

Christmas is Coming!!

Well…it’s now the beginning of November – which means Christmas will soon be here! … And the snow!!

First of all…I want to say a big Thank You to Angel Elmer – she worked on my blog for me and got it fixed!!  I’m always amazed at those people who know this technology and can make it work!  I’m not one of them by any means…but I love papercrafting – making cards, boxes, etc – so I really appreciate the work Angel put into my blog for me!

Have you started your Christmas cards yet? Join us on Saturday, November 8 for the Christmas Card Club class. This is one of the Christmas cards we’ll be making – with new product from the Holiday Catalogue.  Both cards are (almost) the same – just different colours!

Christmas Card - Tree Punch & Endless Wishes

Christmas Card – Tree Punch & Endless Wishes

I used the new Confetti Stars punch (#135861 – pg 30 Holiday Catalogue) and it’s amazing!  I can punch out dozens of tiny stars at one time – and use them as decorations on the tree!!  The sentiment is from the Endless Wishes stamp set (#136829 Photopolymer – pg 32 Holiday Catalogue).  Lots of Christmas sentiments to use…and I love using the Photopolymer stamps.  They make it easy to get everything lined up exactly where I want!
