Countdown to Christmas - 11 months!

For the past few years,  I have posted Christmas cards on the 25th of each month, and suggested that you make a few Christmas cards each month.  You will avoid the stress of making them when you have so many other things to do to prepare for the holidays.   I took my own advice last year and when Christmas came - I had a nice stack of cards ready to send.  I got MOST of them sent out on time, and I even sent to more people than I usually do.  I hope everyone enjoyed receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them!

This year I am going to try again to take my advice. I hope you will accept the challenge to do the same!

This month I am posting the hand made cards that I received from my stamp club members.for Christmas 2015.

Please leave a comment below to tell me which is your favorite card.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year - a week late!  
I am just getting settled into a routine again after a family vacation to Sedona, Arizona for Christmas. Here are a few pics from our trip:
I guess I got a little TOO relaxed out there.  I still had a week off from my teaching job after we got back home.  But all I wanted to do was relax and veg out!  Now that I am back to school and back to a routine, I am getting back to working in my "rubber" room in the evenings.  Check back for some of the projects I have made using NEW stamp sets and products from Stampin' Up!

December's Stamp Club Projects

These were the projects we made at my December stamp club classes.  The cards at the top are made with the Christmas Cuties stamp set - which is retiring on January 4.  The 3D item we made was a square pillow box.  Unfortunately the pillow box thinlit and coordinating stamp set are also on the retired list.  This is such a versatile die - it makes a nice sized box and there are ways to make it even bigger, like the one at the top right.  You can click on the pictures below to purchase these items before they are gone for good!

Thanks for stopping by!
See you next year!

Paper Pumpkin December 2015

Look what arrived in my mailbox this month!  Paper Pumpkin is a monthly craft kit that is delivered to your mailbox each month.  I was debating about what kind of calendar to make this year - and now all work is done for me.  I can't wait to see what will arrive in next month's box!

If you would like to join the fun - you can sign up by clicking on the Paper Pumpkin link at the top or bottom of this page.  You can cancel at any time (but why would you?)  You can also skip a month or two or more.  And the best part is that if you are a subscriber (even if your subscription is on hold) you can purchase refills and past kits!

You can also purchase 1, 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.  Click on your choice below and wait for the fun to begin.
