Christmas Stamp A Stack

Once again I attended my Stampin' Up demonstrator's Christmas Stamp A Stack.  It is always such a great weekend.  She holds it over two night, a normal person would only go one of the nights.  But I like to go and enjoy both nights, and help out wherever I can.  Kathy had some fantastic cards for everyone this year to make.

I had a hard time getting a photo of this Very Vanilla card.  :)

Supplies: All Stampin' Up

SU - Club November

This month for Club we made some great projects...however, I only seemed to have photographed two of them...whoops.  I really like the second card that we made...I love the colors.

Elsa - So Serious

I just love this paper by Jillibean Soup!  It is so vibrant.  I really enjoyed looking at this set of pictures of Elsa.  I remember that she had been sleeping when we arrived at the park to meet up with friends.  She was so unimpressed to be woken up.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill, Ki Memories, & Jillibean Soup (Summer Squash Soup); Punch: SU (Tab), CM (Corner) & SM (Flower Shower); Embossing Folder: PC (Swiss Dots); Ink: SU (Real Red); Cricut: Lyrical Letters; Marker: TH (Black Soot); Stamp: Recollection (Grunge Calendar); Rhinestones: Recollection; Misc:  Flower

Simple Card

Back in October, just before I went to the Scrapbooking Retreat, I had ordered the Cricut cartridge "Artiste" from Close to My Heart.  At that time I also ordered a Christmas stamp set that went with the cartridge.  Here is my first try at using the cut image and the stamp image together.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill, SU (Whisper White) & Recollections (Bright & Jolly); Embossing Folder: PC (Baby's Breath); Cricut: CTMH (Artiste); Stamps: CTMH (Very Merry Christmas); Ink: SU (Real Red); Stickles: Xmas Red; Ribbon: Celebrate It (Holiday); Rhinestones: Recollections; Punch: SU (Scallop Trim)

Using Some Scraps

 Recently I made a scrapbook page with this fun rainbow like paper.  I am one of those paper crafters who has a hard time tossing out the little extra pieces of paper.  But, I'm not very good at using those papers that I collect.  So, it was my mission today to make a Christmas card using some of those scraps.  I think the card looks way better in person.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Jillibean Soup; Stamp: Northwoods; Cricut: Christmas Cheer; Rhinestones: Recollections; Ribbon: Celebrate It (Holiday); Marker: TH (Black Soot); Embossing Powder: Stampendous (Detail Black); Glitter: Ranger (Iced Rock Candy)

Elsa - Nine Months

Here's another layout for Elsa's book.  I struggled with this layout a bit, I just didn't know what to do with it.  I did use some cool Bazzill Pleated paper.  Sorry for the poor photo, I'm trying learn how to take better pictures of layouts, but it's not going great.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill, Heidi Grace Designs, Provo Craft, Ki Memories; Punch: SU (Scallop Trim & Corner, Scallop Edge) & MS (Loops Hearts, Double Loop Corner); Cricut: Designer's Calenar; Ink: TH (Spun Sugar & Dusty Concord); Misc: Ribbon, Rhinestones, Ranger (Glossy Accents)

Another Pinspiration Card

The other day I made a very similar card to this one.  I had a bunch of this paper sitting on the desk just waiting to be used.  I also think this is a pretty fun card to make and it's really pretty easy too.  You can find the instruction here.
