CCC Christmas in November: Winter Wonderland !!

Hey Stampers,

Well, as you read this - I am in Florida !! Or at least on the airplane. I am flying to Florida today to have a lovely 2 week Disney vacation with my awesome family !! YAY !! But, I am still keeping up with my CCC posts - so remember to keep coming back here or to Catherine and Cathy Create to see whats new !! Well, onto my Winter Wonderland themed post for today !!


I have seen a lot of different versions of this beautiful Endless Wishes card. I LOVED it so I needed to create one for myself !! And I used the fun (and easy and affordable) Note Cards and Envelopes to make it ! SUCH an easy and quick way to make a ton of cards super fast !! I loved the idea of adding some Silver Glimmer Paper to the card, so 2 little Star Punches (from the Merry Minis set) was the perfect addition !! Unfortunately, this super popular stamp set is already sold out for the season ! So if you didn’t get a chance to get it, its still a fun layout to recreate with other stamps !!

Well thats it for me today !! Thanks so much for stopping by!! And drop over to Catherine and Cathy Create and play along with our monthly challenges !! Have a good one and Happy Stamping !!

CCC #014: Cards Challenge - Button Up !!

Hey Stampers,

Is there a nip in the air where you live !?! It is CERTAINLY getting wintery here in my neck of the woods. I even had to wear a scarf this morning with my coat !! Yikes ! So, in honour of cooler temperatures, our Cards Challenge over at Catherine and Cathy Create this month is Button Up !! Add a button to your card and come on over and join us !! Take a look at the fun buttons card I came up with !!


Isn’t that cute !?! I’ve been seeing a lot of fun samples of cards where they use buttons as ornaments, and I thought they would look AWESOME hung off this fun sentiment from the Snow Day stamp set !! So, this card was SO easy to make !! After I stamped my image and added my buttons with glue dots, I used a ruler and my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to draw in my ornament pieces - so fun !! I love how they turned out. And I also added some Jumbo Basic Pearls to the centres as well - don’t they look sweet enough to hang on your tree ??

Well, thats it for me today !! I hope you can come over to Catherine and Cathy Create to join us with our fun Button Up challenge. If you link up before November 30th you will be entered to win our Monthly Prize !! FUN !! So hop on over and check it out !!! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!

CCC #013 November Challenge: Playing With Triangles !

Hey Stampers,

So, I now that the hustle and bustle of HALLOWE’EN is over (its crazy that there even IS a hustle and bustle for that holiday) I am OFFICIALLY in CHRISTMAS MODE !! Yay !! I love me some Christmas. So, even though the fun challenge for November is “triangles” I am still doing a Christmas themed project! I am LOVING quick and easy cards this year. I think Cathy is totally rubbing off on me, cause I am loving lots of white on white. She would be so proud !! LOL SO without further ado, here is my fun triangle inspired Christmas card !!


Isn’t that fun ?? When I first stared to think triangles, I was a bit stumped. But when I looked around my craft room for some inspiration - I saw the Petite Pennants Punch. Ding ding ding !! So I then took the awesome Season of Style DSP and started punching !! I created this fun pattern in MINUTES and it loos so impressive !! Love love love it. Some pieces of ribbon, a sentiment and a fab Frosted Finishes embellishment, and this card car done !! SO easy and quick to reproduce too !! I can see me making a bunch of these (in lots of different DSP’s) in no time at all !!

Well, thats it for me today !! Thanks a LOT for stopping by. And drop on over to Catherine and Cathy Create to play along with our November Challenge and to see what all our wonderful Design Team have created as well !! Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping !
