Here's a message from Carrie Warner from the Stampin' Up! Home Office...

Although the kits contain stand alone projects...you don't need both months' kits to complete the projects...you won't want to miss either month so subscribe now so you won't miss out!

You will receive both the October and November kits weeks before the hectic holiday season begins—leaving you with plenty of time to craft. And since papercrafting may not be at the front of your mind this early in the season, just think of how great it will feel to have cute projects all ready to go. You’ll impress everyone at your holiday parties and get-togethers with darling handmade projects . . . and no one will ever know how easy they were to create!

Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Stamped Background Christmas Card

Before we talk about today's makeover and Christmas card idea, I just want to thank all of you who have inquired about our safety and condition of our home in Texas.  We are currently in Missouri but have been keeping close tabs with family back home.  They are safe and we have been spared with no water in our homes for now.  There are many in our state who have experienced the devastation of Harvey.   Please pray for Texas. Carols-of-christmas-stamped-backgroundToday's card is a makeover of a Valentine card from a couple of years back.    Notice the background.  It's hand stamped with tone on tone...Cherry Cobbler ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock.  This is an easy way to create a beautiful yet subtle backdrop for your handmade cards. 

Let's take a look at the video from the past...

  • For this one, the strips measure 2 1/2 x 12 and 1 1/2 x 12.
  • The excess was trimmed after wrapping the paper around the glass.

Christmas Crafting on Facebook LIVE

Just finished some Christmas crafting and chatting on Facebook LIVE in my Ink and Inspirations Stampers Group!  It's been a while and it's always so much fun to share a little crafting time with friends.

The first project was this Christmas cone to use with this antique bed spring.  I plan to fill it with mints to use in my stamp room.  It all started with a 8" square piece of the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper.

Diy-christmas-table-decorThese next two are smaller cones created with a 4" square piece of designer paper.  They make cute ornaments with a sweet treat tucked inside.
