Just scroll through these pictures and you’ll get an idea of what FUN we have at club!!  Our Christmas Party, where we combine my 2 clubs, is the event we look forward to all year!  Everyone cranks out lots of little gifts to pass out & goes home with quite an assortment!  I couldn’t find pictures of everyone’s gift, but most of them are here.  You can see we play some silly games & eat some delicious food!

Season’s Greetings! Time to Order 2016 Calendars!

Dec 2015

Happy December!  This month I used one of my favorite stamp sets:  Work of Art!  So simple to make a pretty card using this set.  My colors are Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Wild Wasabi.  The branch is from An Open Heart.

Be sure and SLOW DOWN a bit this month and enjoy your family & friends and be sure to relax with a little stamping!  I have to tell myself this every day.  And focus on the “reason for the season”…JESUS!  We have so much to be thankful for!

Contact me to order your own 2016 desktop calendars for just $12 each. These include a sturdy plastic case.  The good news is shipping is just $6, no matter how many sets you order!  Order them soon to  get them for Christmas. 

Can’t wait to see what Anne & Crystal have done this month!

Have a Merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Blue Wonderland

Some of my stamping friends wanted help coming up with a card using this beautiful stamp set, Wonderland, and they wanted it in all blue.

Here’s what I came up with:

Blue Wonderland

  • Colors:  Soft Sky background, Bermuda Bay (3 5/8 X 4 7/8), Lost Lagoon (3 3/8 X 4 5/8), Whisper White (3 1/4 X 4 1/2), Silver strip (3 1/4 X 1/4)
  • Stamp Set:  Wonderland
  • Accessories:  Cute bow cut from Mini Treat Bag Framelits, random sequins

I’m glad they asked me for this idea.  Don’t think I would have done all blue, but I really like the results!

Maui Big Shots! Homework

Every 2 months the Maui Big Shots! (my downline) get together to share ideas, do some stamping, and eat!  They had some homework from last time and I couldn’t wait to see what they did with it!

Their assignment was to make something with the supplies they were given:

  • Lost Lagoon Card Base
  • Mint Macaron Card Stock
  • Real Red Card Stock
  • Real Red Satin Ribbon
  • Metal Rimmed Pearl

They didn’t have to use all supplies and could add things of their own.  Here’s the results:
