December Catchup

Hey Everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, as usual, this month got away from me.  I can't believe the last time I posted was on December 1st!  Anyway, so I have been very busy to say the least.  I was still making videos, but neglected to post them here on the blog and on my facebook page.  If you want to check them out, check out  my YouTube Channel.  I have provided a link for one of them below but you can access all of them on my channel:

Here are some pictures for the projects that I hadn't posted (videos are on YouTube):

I am sorry I got so behind, and then got sick and trying to catch up has taken me a while.  Hopefully things are getting back to normal.  I will also be posting today details and videos for 2 projects I have created this week, and then Friday, I will have another post for you as well.

2014 Holiday Card Series - Day 15 featuring Wondrous Wreath Bundle by Stampin'Up!

Hello everyone,

I know this is late going up, just ran out of time.  So we are at day 15 and almost finished with the card series.  Here is today's card...

What do you think?  I love the silver embossing - adds such a wow in my opinion.  If you wanted to step it up a notch, you could even mat the whisper white piece with glimmer paper or silver foil.  The best was quick and easy to make.  Watch the video below for step by step instructions on how to make this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying the series and getting inspired to create your own holiday cards.  Earlier today I announced a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine giveaway.  See details below.  Next week rather than cards, I will be announcing 3 other giveaways.  Make sure to check back to see how to win!

2014 Holiday Card Series - Day 14 featuring Wonderous Wreath by Stampin'Up!

What?  Day 14 already?  We are almost done with the series and yet I feel we have so much more to do!!  What do you think of this card?

I know you can't really see the wow factor of this card which is the Iridescent Ice embossed snowflakes, but in person it is just beautiful.  Check out today's video below where I show you how I created this window card using the Wonderous Wreath and matching framelits.

Hope you are enjoying the series.  We have a few more to go, before we wrap it up for this year, but I will still be posting various holiday projects and cards in the coming weeks.

2014 Holiday Card Series - Day 13 featuring Wonderous Wreath by Stampin'Up!

Another week of holiday inspiration.  Day 13 kicks off with the Wonderous Wreath Bundle.  Wouldn't you just love for your front door to look like this?

Today's video is a bit longer than usual because I walk through the process of 2-step stamping.  Great new feature that Stampin'Up! introduced with this stamp set and coordinating framelits.  Watch below to get all the info.

All the supplies I used in this card project are linked below to my online store.  Thanks for stopping by and I will see you back here on Wednesday for another card project using this set.
