A Warm & Toasty Christmas

I am so excited to be able to start sharing holiday cards and projects with you! The Mini Catalog offers so many new card ideas, stamp sets, embossing folders, dies, embellishments, and punches. Oh my! The Warm & Toasty stamp set was my husband’s number one choice. And that is funny because he usually has no opinion. Ha! My wish list grew so quickly. It was just like looking at the Sears catalog when I was a kid! Did any of you do that? It was so exciting when that catalog would hit our mailbox. We would all huddle around and gush over everything. And when the catalog was finished, we would cut up the catalog and make paper dolls. We stored them in a shoebox and played with them often.

Do you have a copy of the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog? Don’t forget that if you are not already working with a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, you can request one right here on my website? I would love to be your demonstrator and help you with any questions. If your wishlist from the catalog is a long one you should take advantage of the best offering I have! Join my team of discount shoppers! This does not mean that you need to run a business or hold workshops. It just means that you purchase your starter kit for $99 and YOU get to CHOOSE $125 of product!!! There is a quarterly minimum but if you don’t make enough purchases to meet that then you just return to being my customer. No Stampin’ Up police will show up looking for you! 🙂 I promise.

Today’s Video

Today’s cards feature the Warm & Toasty stamp set by Stampin’ Up. The images are simple and whimsical and easily spark your creativity! This set is not part of a suite or bundle but there are endless possibilities of mixing and matching! I used punches and dies from other sets to cut my images, but you could easily fussy cut these as well. These tiny creatures are sure to make your Christmas Merry!

Here are my samples:

Stampin’ Up’s You Are My Sunshine

Even just saying You Are My Sunshine makes me smile! I have such fond memories of singing that song to my children and my mother singing it to me as well. We even used to have a little neighbor girl that sang it with a tiny lisp and it was precious! Our new Bumblebee In Color was the obvious choice to use for my card. And I feel that the Magenta Madness adds just a little sparkle. So happy!

I filmed this video at the same time that I shot the Lovely You video. So again I apologize that it is a little too close up. I do not expect that I will ever win an award for my filming skills! But it is what it is and I am learning more each day. I think life long learning is so important. Especially during all of this COVID stuff….it has been a great way to work through the time and work out some frustrations. I hope that your crafting has been a pleasant diversion to you. And when you are finished crafting you can share the sunshine to someone else by sending them your card!

Here is today’s video:

  • Bumblebee Cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ (2)
