Snowflake Showcase

Do you love snowflakes like I do?  I'm not much of a Santa girl but love snowflakes!

Stampin' Up! has released an exclusive bundle for the month of November--Snowflakes!  But not just snowflakes--there is also a stamp set with matching dies that are suitable year-round.

There are two stamp sets, a set of gorgeous snowflake dies that match, snowflake trinkets, and white velvet paper.  Buy one, or buy them all!

Products are available while supplies last or until November 30.

Here is a video showing what all is included

Have fun with these great sets--I know I will!  I'll have some samples to show you in just a few days when I return from OnStage!





Product List



Origami/Diaper-Fold Treat Holders

I made a bunch of treat holders as swaps for OnStage Orlando.  I have made these in the past but was reminded of them by Julie Davison.  These are really easy to make and can be made any size.  I made some using papers that were 5x5 (for regular Ghiradelli squares), 4.5 x 4.5 for others, and 4x4 for mini treats.  Choose whatever paper you like (make sure you like both sides as they will show) and fold!

Fold in half to make a triangle, fold each side into the middle (I used my grid paper to line them up so that they are straight) and then fold down the top piece.  Use your bone folder to get crisp folds and you don't have to use any adhesive to hold these together!  

Decorate however you like!  I used Stitched Shapes framelits for circles, Stitched Labels Framelits (along with The Stitched All Around Stamp set), Treat Time Stamp Set with matching Petite Treat framelits, leaves from the Foliage Frame Framelits, Lakeside Framelits, and the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.

Last Month's Class Cards

I wanted to share with you the cards we made in my class last month.  I thought I had already shared but had not.  First up is a Halloween card using the Toil & Trouble DSP and the Cauldron Bubble Bundle:

This is a quick and easy card and you can use the matching framelits to cut out different parts of the Designer Series Paper!

Next is another card using Nature's Poem DSP.  I love this paper!  It makes such elegant cards!  This is the third card I've made using this paper (I'll share others later as they are swaps for OnStage and I don't want to spoil the surprise).

Stamping leaves and cutting them out with the matching framelits makes it so easy!

Last up is a card using the Country Home suite of products:

This was a fun card to make, using some cotton from cotton balls to mimic the cotton bolls on the Country Home stamp set!  The Galvanized Metallic paper is so pretty in person too!
