Great Joy

Cheers to Friday, friends!  How did your week go?  Did you have a wonderful Christmas?  We had a good one and I even enjoyed some relaxation time!  Let’s get down to business with today’s super simple but beautiful card.  It was created by Robin Castagnola for our demonstrator meeting that was held back in October.

Here’s a little funny, my finished card is on the left and it was missing the strip of Glimmer Paper.  Not a big deal, I can always peel off the stocking and banner and add some DSP.  Her sample card is on the right, that strip sure makes the card pop!!

So Santa Shaker Card

Welcome back to a new week, friends, Monday sure comes around way to quickly over here…but then again, when doesn’t it?!  Today’s share if my swap card I made while attending last month’s OnStage event in Orlando.  My demonstrator group held an organized swap and I knew I wanted to do something fun with the So Santa stamp set found on page 23 of the Holiday Catalog.  I had sand that I collected for a project that I never got around to using, so I turned my card into a shaker.  The sand is from my local favorite beach located just north of me in Ventura, Calif.

Piece of Cake

Hello, friends! I wanted to share with you my my shoebox swap for this year’s annual demonstrator Christmas party.  I used the Piece of Cake stamp set that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog beginning January 3, 2019.  This stamp set is on page 18 and is bundled with the coordinating Cake Builder punch, keep in mind that if purchased together as a bundle you save 10%!

Home – Gift Exchange

Happy Hump day, friends!  We are half way through the week!  Each year my demonstrator group meets in November or early December and we hold our annual Christmas Party with a potluck, shoebox swap, play a silly game, and exchange a handmade gift.  This was my gift bag this year, I always change it up, so nobody knows who brought what gift!

Want to see what was inside? While I made several of these for gifts back in June, I have been addicted to making the interchangeable “O”. My friend and fellow demonstrator Sheila won this gift!
