So hard to let go

I hope you've enjoyed your holidays. I've taken some time off and it feels wonderful. When Stampin'up releases the retiring list of products from a catalogue, I always cringe my teeth… I have trouble letting go of my retired favorites… I use to keep them anyway but now I only keep a selected few… Being a demonstrator for over 10 years has made my stash of SU products pretty big. If I kept all my stampin products, I would need to upgrade the size of my craft room… Us demonstrators have great perks, like free goodies, bonus and a discount on our products, hence the reason I have a great and big supply of goodness… You might want to check in during the Sale-a-bration period that starts on January 4th, the starter kit has a great deal going down…  There has never been a better time to join either for the discount or to start your own business.

The holiday catalogue is coming to an end on January 3rd, just like the holiday are almost over.  I've shifted from making holiday projects, to winter projects… I'm loving the Mountain Adventure stamp set… This is one stamp set that I'm keeping in my retired stash… Skiing is a big part of our family activities and I know this set will be useful for a very long time.  I've design this scrapbook page below for my January scrapbook club, if you would like to attend, I'm hosting on January 11th.  If you live too far then take advantage of my kit to go.  The kit to go includes the Mountain Adventure stamp set.  You have until January 3rd to sign up.

I wanted to include so many pictures… There wasn't enough space for my journaling.  To resolve this issue, I added flip pockets to incorporate my journaling. The linen thread kept the pockets closed.  Another idea would be to use magnets…

The embellishments from the holiday catalogue were pretty amazing as well.  I love glittery things.  The tins of tags project kit includes these star and circle sequins.  I added them using the Fine tip glue pen.  I also added white mica flakes to my mountains.

Here is a view of the inside of my pockets.  I stamped the inside and colored the stamp images with my new watercolor crayons that are coming in the new occasion catalogue.  This is one of the perks of being a demonstrator, we can pre order the new goodies from the next catalogue. If you don't have the new crayons, you can use the ink off of your ink pads.  I just press my ink pad down so the ink transfers to the inside of the lid.

On my previous post, I talked about how much I love the large letters framelits. This time I embossed my letters with softly falling textured impression embossing folder.  Adding texture to the letters made the title pop out.  I also added more white mica flakes…

Tip: When I want to display a scrapbook page, I get a 12×12 canvas at my local craft store and mount the page to it.  It's perfect for wall art or even to display on a shelf.  This page will make it to my scrapbook wall for sure… The color combo is perfect for my display area.

Join a stamping club

I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years now.  I recently took out my scrapbooking albums.   I couldn't even recall completing so many pages.  As you know, I have 3 daughters.  I started stamping after Jordan was born.  Therefore, I don't have a perfect album of every year and every occasion.  I just go with the flow and pick one picture that inspires me.  Sometimes I have a theme and sometimes I don't.  It just depends on how I feel that day.  The best part of all those pages was reading the content.  It took me back to those memories.  I recently created this page of Jordan.  She was 2 1/2 years old.  This photo was taken by our local newspaper.  She was attending day care and Santa had come to visit with presents.  On the right side, I used the detailed to santa thinlits dies.  I created a tab that opens and on the inside, I journaled.  Jordan will be able to read why she was so happy that day.

Writing a title can be so easy with the Large Letters framelits dies #141712.  They are the bomb!  I've embossed the O by inking my cardstock with versamark then added embossing powder and heated it.

If you would like to update your albums and start creating scrapbook pages.  Send me your name to join my monthly group.  Cost is 25$ and includes products.   We start on January 11th at 630 pm. Can't make it because you live too far.  If you are Canadian, join my stamping in the mail club.  You will receive your package at home and can stamp in your pjs. 

Don't forget to sign up for Jo-Ann and I's occasion event planned for February, early bird pricing ends on December 18th which is today.  We are more than half full but still have room for you.  Jo-Ann has created a fabulous certificate and if you prefer asking your family or friends a voucher for our event for Christmas, the option is available to you.  See voucher below.

Green Christmas, not!

 

I guess we won't be getting a green Christmas like last year… we are expecting 10-15 cm of snow starting late this evening. I'm hoping I don't need to commute tomorrow and can work from the closest office.  I took the opportunity today to stay in my pjs and work on a couple of projects.  It felt so good to just stay home.  I'm late with my Christmas decorations and Christmas shopping.  I think this year it will be mostly online shopping!   I've been sick since mid October and finally after 10 days of antibiotics, I'm feeling like myself again.  I don't like to take antibiotics but obviously, I needed it!  Therefore, I'm much more productive since my health is improving.  My Holiday card stash is coming along.  If you would like a holiday card from me, send me your mailing address this week. I'd love to finalize my to do card list.

Below you will find a card loaded with embellishments.  I just felt like going over the top.  It's one of those cards that nothing felt right but in the end fell together.  Garden green is not one of my go to colors normally but I am trying really hard to go out of my comfort zone. 

My embellishments included: 

– warmth & cheer designer washi tape #141994

– mica flakes trio pack #141998, I used the white flakes and adhered them with the fine tip glue pen #138309

– pearl basic jewels #119247

– very vanilla 1/2" lace trim #141672

-warmth & cheer designer series paper stack #141991

Some of these products are on sale right now.  Click the link below with all the sales or HERE.

The other products used for this card will be at the bottom of this post.

Here are a couple of additional tips:

I used the paper piercing tool #126189 to make holes around my oval very vanilla cardstock.

I also stamped once on a scrap piece of cardstock the tree before stamping to the oval cardstock so it would be faded.

Don't forget to sign up for Jo-Ann and I's occasion event planned for February, early bird pricing ends on December 18th.  We are more than half full but still have room for you.  Jo-Ann has created a fabulous certificate and if you prefer asking your family or friends a voucher for our event for Christmas, the option is available to you.  See voucher below.

Mixed Matched stockings

Do you ever find yourself with mixed matched stockings?  We seem to have an entire bag of them at home… Our cleaning lady has been trying to sort them out once in a while…  She's a blessing in our home, don't know what we would do without her with our busy schedule.   I had to tell her that Jordan has stockings that are purposely purchased mixed matched.  It's seems to be the pre teenager style!   In the holiday catalogue, the Hang your stocking stamp set and Christmas stockings thinlits dies is the perfect bundle to create mixed matched stockings!  I designed this card for our fundraiser and was so excited to see all the different stockings that could be created! Below here is one of them.  You can click HERE to view all the products to create this card.  You also want to check my link below.  Stampin up has amazing deals that have started today!  Don't miss out!
