Keurig and Christmas

Remember the December Hostess Code 

December Hostess Code EVWRYBKE.  Spend $50.00 (before shipping and tax) on my website and you will earn a free gift from me.  This month's freebie is Linen Thread.  Your gift will be sent at the end of the month and will come directly from me.

For all the Keurig and Coffee lovers out there, check out this sweet little Keurig that holds a mini cup filled with whatever you like.  This one holds candies, but a Keurig Cup would fit perfectly as well.

This great little project comes directly from my upline, Lorri Heiling and I love that she shares her fun projects with her team.

If you would like the tutorial to go with this, there are a couple of options.  The first is to purchase it on Lorri's Blog.   OR I just bet, if you join my team I could share it with you like she did with me.

The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration event is about to start in January.  A perfect time to join Stampin' Up! with new products and FREE items with qualifying purchases.  I'd love to have you on my Stamps Well With Others Team!

Inside, there's a little space perfect for a gift card, probably a coffee shop card would go best!

Thank you for looking in today.  It's Friday Eve!  Sounds better than Thursday, right?

HO HO Eclipse

So this card has been in my "to do" list for a while and it occurred to me if I didn't do it soon, it was going to be too late!  Christmas is less than two weeks away and time is slipping by quickly.

Real Red - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4" (times two - one for inside also)

Stamps - Santa's Suit
Ink - Memento Black, Real Red and Soft Suede (for the clothespins)

Stamp everything you want on the face of your card first and then place your Large Letter Dies where you want them.  Be sure to have them where you have enough space for all four letters.  I nearly didn't so I'm reminding you to do so first, not like me!

Adhere the main part of the card to the Real Red and then pop up the letters.

Remember to keep the inside of the "O" and glue it to the Real Red so it is level with the main part of the card.  The best way is to lay the O in the space where it goes (with NO ADHESIVE) and then put a little glue on the inside of the "O" and lay it down inside of the O.  Then lift out the letter and place small strips of Stampin' Dimensionals under the letters so they can pop up.

Stamp something on the inside if you wish and you are done!

Thank you for looking in today.  Happy Tuesday!

Little or No Stamping

For those times when you need a quick last minute Christmas Card, here's a fast fix for you to keep in mind.

The Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper (DSP) has two full sheets of "thought bubble" greetings that can easily be cut out and placed onto a card.  If you stamp the inside, it's completely up to you.

Real Red - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Pool Party - 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
Christmas Around the World DSP - Merry Christmas
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4" (inside)

Stamps - Oh What Fun (inside)

Depending on what you have on the outside, you could really just leave the inside blank for your handwritten greeting or message to the recipient.

Thank you for looking in today.  So happy the weekend is here again!  Happy Saturday!
