Still more Christmas Cards

Hello Stampers!  This is my final set of hand made Christmas cards.

P1090830-1This card was made by Angela.  She used the scrappin' kit from the Holiday mini catalog and lots of bling!

P1090831-1This card was made by one of my downline Karen.  She used the super cute stamp set Snow Much Fun (122560).

P1090832-1This fun card was made by my downline Lynn.  I love the way she used the Island Floral die (118871) with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) to make the Christmas lights.

Thanks for looking at my Christmas cards!

Christmas cards

Hello Stampers!  I know that Christmas is over, but I would like to show you some hand made Christmas cards that I received from friends and family this year.

P1090823-1This card was made by my good friend Sally.  I love the Christmas tree stamp!

My Digital Studio downloads

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas!  I really enjoyed taking a few days off and spending time with my family!  We are not quite done celebrating yet though!  We have family coming in tomorrow for a few days.  The fun continues!  It has been a little rough for Casie, my oldest daughter though. She had her tonsils taken out on Thursday, so she pretty much slept Christmas away.  She started feeling better yesturday though and is actually eating more today, so she is on the road to recovery!

Since today is Tuesday, it is My Digital Studio day!  I am so excited about this weeks new downloads, but first I wanted to show you what my daughter Amie made for her Christmas presents to family (mom, if you haven't seen yours yet, stop reading!!!)

P1090821-1What is this you ask?  Amie loves to make movies, so she made movies for all of the grandparents and aunts of all of the pictures she could find of them with her since birth!  It took her weeks to pick out all of the pictures from the scrapbooks, scan them, and get them divided into individual movies!  She also made one of these for my MIL's 75 birthday using all the pictures she could get from family members of my MIL growing up.  It was very nice!

Anywho, she needed labels for her movies so I told her to whip some up using My Digital Studio!  They aren't great, but they were simple and quick!

Snow Much Fun Christmas card

Hello Stampers!  Happy Christmas Eve to you!  I have one last Christmas card to show you that I made.  We made this card in my Monthly Card Class this month.

P1090756-1Isn't he sweet?  I actually found this card on Ronda's blog and CASE'd it almost completely!  I just thought he was so fun!

The card color is Marina Mist (one of my favorite SU! colors).  And of course what is a Christmas card without a little Christmas bling!  Don't you just love the Silver Glimmer paper (124005)?

The stamp set we used was Snow Much Fun (122560) from the main catalog.  To make the ruffled ribbon, lay down a strip of Sticky Strip (104294) and just lay the ribbon down including loops here and there.  It is really pretty easy!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!  Spend some time this wonderful season with your friends and family.

Stocking Builder punch cello bags

Hello Stampers!  Well, yesturday was my last day of preschool before the Christmas break!  Did you know that teachers look forward to these breaks just as much as the kids do?

P1090742-1I made these M & M stackers as little gifts for my preschoolers and co-workers.  I used the Stocking Builder punch (124095) to punch out the cute little stockings.  I wrote their names on the cuff and then ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) using the Elegant Lines embossing folder (119277).  The bags are the new 1" X 8" Cellophane bags (124134) that Stampin' Up! carries now.

P1090741-1Here is a close up of the stocking.  Aren't they cute?

If you are interested in this stocking punch, you need to get yours ordered before the Holiday mini catalog retires on January 3rd.  This punch may not be available again after that date.  Hop over to my Inkin With Dink online store and order yours today!

Santa's chocolate bar cover

Hello Stampers!  I was sitting at my table the other day looking at some Hershey bars and I had a scrap piece of the Silver Glimmer paper (124005) and thought it would be a perfect belt buckle!

P1090753-1What do you think?  I simply punched out the 3/4" square (retired punch ) first and then centered the opening inside the 1 1/4" square punch (119865).  My belt is a 1" wide strip.  That's it!

Make some of these for a quick holiday gift!

3D Pennant Parade Christmas tree card

Hello Stampers!  I love being able to show you stampers multiple uses of our tools and stamp sets, so today I wanted to show you another Christmas card that I made using the Pennant Parade stamp set (122740) and the Petite Pennants Builder punch (122361).

P1090736-1This is one of the cards that we made during my card classes this month.  The tree has been stamped three times and then punched out using the punch.  Each punched piece is folded in half and then they are adhered together and put on the card.  It is really very simple!

Hop over to my Inkin With Dink online store and purchase this versatile stamp set and punch.  That way you will  be all ready when I show you the next card made with these supplies!

Holiday Stocking door knob hanger kids camp

Hello Stampers!  Saturday was my December kids camp.  The girls seemed to have a really good time making all of their Christmas projects!  We made two Christmas cards and two 3D items.

P1090745-1This is a door knob hanger that each girl made.  We used the Holiday Stocking die (124098) and embossed the extra pieces with the Elegant Lines embossing folder (119277). They could put their initial on it in their favorite color!  They love making anything they can where they get to use the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).

P1090744-1Here are the girls holding up their favorite projects that we made!

If you know of a kid at least 8 years old who would like to join us at my Kid's Camps, let me know!  I will make sure that you are aware of upcoming classes!

Dink It Up! Christmas party

Hello Stampers!  Friday evening was my Dink It Up! Christmas party!  We had a great time!  Everybody brought an appetizer to share and they were so yummy!

We also had a Christmas cookie swap and they were super yummy too!

Finally, we had a "My favorite thing" gift exchange.  Everybody brought something that they would consider to be their favorite thing, whether it be snack, lotion, gift card from a favorite restaurant etc.  We then drew numbers and picked a present to open according to our numbers!  We had a great time and got a lot of fun items!

P1090743-1Here we are after our gift exchange!  If you would like to join our group, we would love to have you!  Contact me today and I can tell you how!

Christmas cookies and candy

Hello Stampers!  Sorry,  but this is not a stamping related post!  I just had to show some of the cute cookies and candy items I've received lately!

P1090726-1This is a super cute rice krispie pop!  I found these at my last craft fair and knew I had to buy some!  My daughter Amie is so into making cake pops, and I thought this was a fun sample even though the base ingredient is different.

P1090740-1These cookies are some that my husband brought us back from Japan.  Yes, he was in Japan for a week and a half.  We are really glad that he is home because that was a really long time being gone!  Anyway, he found these super cute cookies and brought us home some!  Fun aren't they?  Can you imagine the time it took to decorate each of these?

Hopefully I will have some holiday pops to show you soon that Amie and I will be making!  Stay tuned!
