I’m not moving very fast today since I’m not feeling the best so I thought I’ share some Holiday Catalog Swaps with you.
So if you love clean and simple cards for the holidays you’re going to love these first cards using the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (144702) that has been team up with the photo realistic All is Bright Designer Series Paper (147892) with its beautiful images of holly, bells and baubles on its one side and patterns on the other.
And how about some cards using the coordinating Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies (147912)?
Got a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one is your favorite?
On a personal note I just got back from OnStage Live in Orlando and am soooo excited about our upcoming Occasions & Sale-a-bration Catalogs. I can’t wait for you to see them. I’ll be sharing information and photos from the event over the next week, it will take a bit for me to sort through things so be patient.
Want a Occasions Catalog?
I’ll be finalizing my catalog mailing list next week for those who have placed an order with me over the past 6 months. If you’d like a catalog mailed to you make sure that your Online Order profile is up to date when you place an order with me in my Online Store, so I can mail you a catalog.
I started this project a while back and got side tracked. Does that ever happen to you? That being said, I’m not admitting to my stack of half finished projects anything. LOL!
Well the good news is I finally finished it and love the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with you today.
What do you think? Can you see your favorite autumn photo in it? The color is a bit late here in this neck of the state so I haven’t gotten many pictures yet, but hope too still if the rain doesn’t wash things out.
This frame looks like it took along time and is complicated, but really isn’t difficult to do with a few basic supplies. The frame itself is one of those inexpensive $1 frames you can find at your local Walmart or craft store.
Here is a video tutorial for you showing you how I made it. This video is a bit longer than I normally do so I hope you enjoy it.

Today’s card uses the Healing Hugs stamp set that I shared with you in yesterday’s post. I really love this set with its realistic images – it stamps beautifully and makes get well cards sooo simple to create.
Today’s card is another card I designed for Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap at OnStage Live in Orlando. It uses a simple technique that packs a wow effect. And everyone will wonder how you did it!

Count down to OnStage Live I’m so excited – I’m getting ready to celebrate 30 years of Stampin’ Up! with my fellow demonstrators. I’ll have all kinds of wonderful project and goodies to share with you when I return!!! Meanwhile I’ve got some great posts lined up already sharing some of the projects I’ve made for this event that I hope you’ll enjoy.
Later today I’ll participating in Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap, an event that is all kinds of fun. I’m looking forward to seeing and stamping with some old friends while I’m there too. Any so today I thought I’d show you the card that I’ve designed as my project.
I really love the way this card turned out and think it will brighten the day of the recipient. I’m hoping everyone at the shoe box will feel the same way. How about you, what do you think?

It’s Monday and I’ve got a week filled with tutorials for you! Today’s card is a Thank You card that I make to send out to those of you who place an order – and today’s card is the one I designed for November’s orders using a technique with our Embossing Paste.
I just fell in love with the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper when I saw it so I thought I’d use the beautiful Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper for this month’s project. I teamed it up with some of our Shimmer Paste and our brick mask.
But since I wanted to add a bit more color I tinted the Shimmer Paste Crumb Cake. Check out this quick Video Tutorial showing you just how simple that is to do! And that means we have unlimited colors to choose from. Who doesn’t like that?

Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.
This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.
I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial so you can recreate the Baby Wipe Technique for your projects!
