Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends
Today is Day19 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This project was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  This DARLING little gift is perfect for last minute gift giving this holiday season.  Let me share that project with you now......
Who wouldn't LOVE LOVE LOVE receiving a pizza box filled with little 3"x3" Reindeer cards?
Here's what was tucked inside this pizza box.  Four little 3"x3" Reindeer cards with coordinating envelopes.
Each Reindeer card was created with a panel of 'Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper' on the top of the 3"x3" card .......
And I used the 'Layering Circle Framelits Dies' to create my adorable little Reindeer. 
My antlers were created using the 'Tree Builder' punch.
Here's all four little notecards.....
And as you can see ......
They tuck perfectly inside the 'Mini Pizza Box'.
This little project comes together in a JIFFY.......

Day 18/32 Christmas Extravaganza All Aglow Card

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 18 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This card was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  It's a FUN and WHIMSY kind of holiday card that I think you will enjoy .  Let me share that card with you now......
This is one of those FUN TO CREATE kind of holiday cards.
I started out by adding a panel of 'Merry Little Christmas' Designer Series Paper onto my Whisper White base card.    The real magic for that Designer Series Paper was before adhering it down onto the base card ........ I attached it to a Basic Black cardstock panel.
Next, I die-cut a Whisper White 'Stitched Circles Framelits' and stamped the tree from the 'Wishes All Aglow' set. 
I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color in each of the light bulbs on that tree ........ And then added a drop of 'Fine Tip Glue Pen' to the top of each bulb to make each one sparkle with some sassy holiday shine.
My sentiment was stamped on a 1-1/4" Whisper White panel and adhered down onto the DSP panel. 
All that was left to do was add some 'Stampin' Dimensionals' to the back of my circle and adhere that down onto my card.

Day 17/32 Christmas Extravaganza Mitten Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 17 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This card was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  This card just makes me SMILE BIG each and every time I look at it.  Let me share that card with you now......
I'm just crazy for the way this card turned out.
To begin ....... I adhered a panel of 'Christmas Around the World DSP' to the bottom of my Basic Gray panel.  I used my Big Shot along with some Real Red cardstock and die-cut the "for you" sentiment that comes with the "Mini Treat Bag Thinlits'.
After my "for you" was adhered down ....... I spread a thin layer of 'Fine Tip Glue Pen' over the surface and allowed it to dry.  That glue pen gave my sentiment just the sparkle and shine I was looking for.
I wrapped some of the super soft and super yummy 'Smoky Slate 1/2" Gingham Ribbon around my card and positioned it at the top of my DSP panel and tied it up into a pretty knot.
For the top portion of my card ...... I ran a Whisper White panel through my Big Shot and used the 'Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder' on that panel before adhering it down to my Basic Gray panel.
And the last step to completing this card was stamping two mittens from the 'Smitten Mittens' set onto Real Red cardstock.  I used the coordinating 'Many Mittens Framelits Dies' to crop out both my mittens ........ And then added a Whisper White cuff to each of my mittens.  The finishing touch as adding a large 'Rhinestone Basic Jewel' to the center of each mitten.
SUPER DARLING little card that is sure to deliver some 
cozy holiday spirit to someone special this holiday season.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 18/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Day 16/32 Christmas Extravaganza Noel Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 16 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This card was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  This card is a BEAUTIFUL Red & White Holiday card and I would like to share that card with you now......
Who wouldn't LOVE to receive this traditional Holiday card!
I started this card off with a Real Red base card ........ And then created two panels of Whisper White cardstock along with the 'Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper'.  I adhered one of the panels at the top of my Real Red card ....... and the second panel was adhered to the bottom portion of my card.
Next I used the 'Christmas Pines' set and stamped my "Noel" sentiment onto a circle of Real Red cardstock with VersaMark and sprinkled White Embossing Powder over the top and heat set that sentiment.  All that was left to do for my sentiment was die-cut a Whisper White circle ....... and frame those two circles together.
The finishing touch for this card was adding some of the SUPER YUMMY 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon between my two DSP panels and tied that ribbon into a pretty knot.
And there you have it friends......
A luscious Real Red holiday card that is sure to bring
a festive smile to whoever receives it on my holiday card giving list.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 17/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Day 15/32 Christmas Extravaganza Warmth of Christmas Card

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 15 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This card was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  This is a STUNNING card that is FULL of WONDERFUL winter textures.  Let me share that card with you now......

Sometimes ....... It works to create lots of fun textures on a card.  And today's card is just one of those cards that is packed full of fun winter textures. 
I started this card out by using a Smoky Slate panel and running it through my Big Shot with the 'Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder'.
Next, I used the 'Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies' to create a BEAUTIFUL row of Whisper White snowflakes across the top edge of my card.
After I adhered my row of snowflakes down ...... I used my 'Clear Wink of Stella' to add just the right amount of glimmer to each snowflakes.
And all that was left to do was create my sentiment piece.  And I did that with the help of the 'Snowflake Sentiments' set and my 'Layering Oval Framelits Dies'.
And that was it my friends .......
A holiday card that is filled to top with texture!
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 16/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Day 14/32 Christmas Extravaganza Silver Ornament Tag

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 14 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This tag was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Although this tag doesn't use LOTS of product from the catalog ........ It makes for a BIG IMPACT when attached to a special gift this holiday season.  Let me share that tag with you now......
Sometimes ..... Less is more when making that perfect tag!
To create this quick and easy tag, I created a banner flag tail on the bottom edge of my 2" x 4" Whisper White tag.  Then I stamped my "To/From" sentiment right above that snipped tail edge.
I added a 1" x 2" panel of 'Red Glimmer Paper' to the front of my Whisper White tag ........And then wrapped a piece of 'Silver 1/8" Ribbon' around the center of my Red Glimmer Paper.
Next I attached another piece of 'Silver 1/8" Ribbon'  to a silver 'Mini Ornament' and tied it up into a pretty bow.  All that was left to do was attach that 'Mini Ornament' to the front of my tag with a glue dot.
The finishing touch for this tag was adding some 'Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim' to the top of my tag ....... And I called this tag done (in no time flat).
I'm just crazy about the way this tag turned out ....... And think it would look FABULOUS in other holiday colors.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 15/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Day 13/32 Christmas Extravaganza Happy Christmas Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Day 13 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This card was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  This is a card that is packed full of texture and holiday cheer.  Let me share that card with you now......
What a beautiful way to wish a Happy Christmas to someone special this holiday season.
It starts out by embossing a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock with the 'Garden Trellis Embossing Folder' ...... And then adhering that panel down to a Cherry Cobbler card base.
Next, I used the 'Oh, What Fun' stamp set to create this BEAUTIFUL sentiment square.  And the 'Layering Squares Framelits' allowed me to crop both the sentiment and scallop layer perfectly without any fuss.
Before I adhered my sentiment pieces together ....... I slipped a piece of 3/8" Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon between the two layers and created a pretty little loop with my ribbon.
I think this card just turned out perfectly and to me ........ just screams HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 14/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Stamparatus Reservation Today

Today is the day to order your Stamparatus Tool

Stamparatus-Collage

Check out the changes Stampin' UP! has made to the ordering reservation for the new STAMPARATUS tool

The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided Stampin' UP! with some very important information:
* You LOVE this new stamping tool!
* And we needed to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.
 
As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
 
Here's a fun video to show you more about this amazing new tool.
 
Please note the following important changes:
 
* Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
 
* In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
 
* Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.
 
Please note what has not changed:
 
 * If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
 
*If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
 
* The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5. 

* We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool.

You can go directly to my on-line store to order your Stamparatus tool:

The system will walk you through the rest of the process.

Day 12/32 Christmas Extravaganza Tag Holder

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends
Today is Day 12 of my 32 days of Christmas Extravaganza projects.  This project was created using product from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog and the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Let me share that project with you now.......
This project was designed to be a TAKE ALONG GIFT for any of those upcoming holiday dinner parties you might be going to.  This DARLING little tag holder comes together quickly ....... But delivers a big WOW FACTOR to whoever you are giving it to.
I started out by cutting one of the 'Acetate Card Boxes' in half and designed a Real Red and Basic Black belly band to wrap around it.  I used the 'Merry Little Labels' set to create my sentiment piece.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then used my 'Stitched Shapes Oval Framelits' to die-cut that piece.  All that was left to do was die-cut a Real Red 'Layering Circles Scallop Framelits' piece and adhered all those pieces together.
The tag were all created with the 'Merry Little Labels' set and the 'Celebration Thinlits Dies'.
For each tag I used a combination of Whisper White, Real Red and Basic Black cardstock ....... And I used the 'Everyday Label Punch' to create each of the sentiments.
Each sentiment was stamped with Basic Black ink......
And I topped each tag off with some 'Basic Black Baker's Twine'.
These were the only two tags that I added some extra color ........ And that was done with my Stampin' Write Markers for the holly.
I'm thinking ahead this holiday season ......... And will be making up a few of these tag holders so I have them on hand for those last minute gift giving needs this holiday season.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share Day 13/32 Christmas Extravaganza with you .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
