Love You Much

I know it isn't even Christmas yet but it is time to get ready for valentines day with the love you much bundle! The promotion starts today and lasts until January 31st but the reason you need to know this today is because this is the last day for FREE SHIPPING.

Shipping is free on orders of $70 or more so if you want to combine it with some orders I am turning in today just call or e-mail me. The Items in the bundle are 20% off, you will be able to order them all individually when the new catalog comes out but not at the 20% off.

My favorite part is 2 of the images fit in our many punches. Check back after christmas and I will be posting some projects using these items!

christmas jar

This jar was a lot of fun to make but it looks better in person! First I cut out a chocolate snowflake and I put it inside the jar (it is hard to see in the picture) then I added a large celo bag and filled it with chocolate covered pretzels! Then I tied it with some alpine ribbon and added a vinyl snowflake to the front.

Here is a close up of the tag and the yummy pretzels.

A smaller journal

I made this journal for a hostess this month. I just covered it with DSP and I inked the chipboard letter with chocolate chip craft ink. This was super easy and fun!

My Planner

I have had this planner for about a year now and I love it, I first saw the idea in a stampin' success (a magazine for all the demos) and I made it my own. I just changed the front again to use the build a flower die and chipboard. I used this color scheme so it will match my tote bag I got at convention.

Inside each month I stamp the Calendar & Full Calendar stamps and create my own calendar for the year. I would love to have the It's a Plan stamps also. I always like to have things planned out (can you tell). I also used the spiral punch to make a bookmark so I can flip to the right month.

This is also where I keep a list of our doctors, I punch the end of their business cards with the spiral punch and I have a doctors section.

Front Door Fun

I spent a little time today decorating my front door, I ordered the Medium Welcome from Stampin' Up!'s Decor Elements and I made the snowflakes with my big shot die. I was worried that it would be hard but it was seriously easy and a lot of fun, my 5 year old had fun helping me.

December Club Pages

I went out of the box this month, I didn't use any old olive :) well except for a tiny tiny bit in the ribbon. I used so many new things to make this page, it was so fun. I have been slowly collecting the big shot dies even though I don't have a big shot yet. gasp I know, but hopefully soon. I borrowed the big shot from Becky, thanks tons!!! and I had so much fun using the dies. I also really love the Alpine ribbon from the mini catalog it gave my page the perfect look. A word of advice: I used Dotto to adhere the letters from the go go boots dies and the snowflake to my pages, it is so easy cause it is not only repositionable but removable too!! I used the tree and acorn stamps from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Flower from Fall Flair.

100 Trees

I have been working on, and helping others with few projects lately and I thought it was about time to add another post :) I try to only post samples of images that are in the current catalog (this tree stamp is retired) but I thought it would be fun to show you what 100 trees looks like. I was helping to make these invitations and I think they turned out pretty cute, we had to make them pretty simple since we were making so many. I was on the stamping end of the assembly line, my fingers hurt a little bit after stamping 200 trees but thankfully it didn't last long at all.

In my pictures the flash made the embossed image shine but I love it looking so shiny.
For the ribbon we just stapled it all together and tied a ribbon around it, thanks Meg for the idea, it worked great for this project cause it was so easy. Just staple the ribbon and the cardstock at the same time and then tie it in a knot! One thing I love about embossing is how long a 1/2 ounce of it lasts, it is like it just replenishes itself, and it is fun to watch it change from powder to shine. We also stole the quote from the same stamp set (I hope that is ok). The stamped image didn't fit just right so we just printed it with the other info.

My first Award!!

How exciting, my first award! Megan nominated me for this award. Thanks Meg!! (can I call you meg? it remindes me of hercules :) She is super talented and when I have time to browse her blog is always one of the first I check. I know I need to nominate someone else but my top picks just got nominated so I will try to think of someone else and add them later.
