Pennant Parade Christmas

It’s Snow Much Fun with Snowmen

Oohh..Snowmen- the Snow Much Fun stamp set, who can resist? I love this versatile little winter stamp set. Snow Much Fun and its little sentiments are not just for Christmas. Replace the Christmas sentiment in the Snow Much Fun stamp set with the other sentiment included and it becomes a great birthday card for those who need a cute winter birthday greeting!

Belinda Rodgers gave me this card that she made with the Snow Much Fun stamp set during a recent swap, isn’t it cute?

Stitched Stockings for Christmas

Do you love our Stitched Stockings Stamp Set? I’ve got mine hung on our mantle – I’ve created a felt stocking for each of my family members over the years based on our personalities, so the Stitched Stocking Stamp Set and Stocking Builder Punch were a natural addition to my collection.

Here is a card that I received in a swap from Awilda Cruz at the Charlotte Regional this fall. Isn’t it cute? I like the way she used the wood grain paper from our Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini to create the mantel the Stitched Stockings are hanging from.

Spice Cake Note Book – Holiday Gift

Each year our SINKS group gets together for a gift exchange. I really love these get togethers because I always love to see what my fellow demonstrators create for their gifts along with the fellowship is just a lot of fun.

So, today I thought I would share with you the item that I made as my gift. It uses the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, which is just my absolute favorite in our Holiday Mini Catalog. If you love it as much as I do, don’t forget it is only available until January 3rd – so get yours now before it is too late!

Notebook and Bookmark

I made this coordinating note book, pen, and bookmark set. I like the way the elasticized bookmark will hold your spot in the note book. It seems I’m always making notes to keep myself on task and I know my daughter can’t resist a note book either. So I thought it would make a wonderful gift for anyone of any age.

Here are some of the other gifts from our exchange. I thought everyone did a great job with their items.

Christmas Lodge

As I have mentioned before Christmas Lodge from the Holiday Mini is a great stamp set. (Remember all the items in the Holiday Mini are only available until January 3, 2012.)

Here is a card my friend Lorraine gave me recently that uses the Christmas Lodge stamp set. I really like the way she used our Decorative Label Punch to create the little tag for the sentiment.

Holiday Line Up

Holiday Line Up is such a cute set and the expressions on these cute little faces make me think of my brother-in-laws. For as long as I can remember these guys have loved to play jokes on each other and humor is always part of our holiday gatherings.

Holiday Line Up is great for those of us who like to have a little bit of humor added to our cards or gift tags. This is a card that I received from Diana Eichfeld -she used the Reindeer image from the Holiday Line Up stamp set. Aren’t these guys cute – and doesn’t it make you wonder what this little guy in the center was up to? I think the expression says it all.

Beautiful Season

Love birds? Then the Beautiful Season stamp set is for you with its sweet little chickadee and holly. The Beautiful Season image makes for a very elegant card and if you love to color – you’ll love this stamp set.

I received this card during a swap from Jeanette Horner. I like the way Jeanette used the Stripes Embossing Folder for the background and highlighted the stripes with color to make the Beautiful Season image the focal point – very clever I thought.
