This is a double post from my blog

I always have the desire to make an amazing holiday card and this year I had an excuse! I joined a swap group...sometimes having that deadline forces me to be creative. Love the excuse!
I varied a few of the items in the process of designing this card as is my usual ADD crafting you will notice not all my snowflakes are the Serene Snowflakes stamp set. The Designer Series Paper I used is actually the last couple sheets of a retired pack, use any set that is has the coordinating Riding Hood Red paper, Stampin' Up makes this soo easy to coordinate the papers and card stocks.

Happy Crafting!

Ruffly Wreath

I posted this on my other blog as well but since it is made with a Stampin' Up product I get to share it in both spots!
I used the 3" circle die cut from Sizzix to cut out allllllll those felt circles! what a great project!

Rag Bag Bonanza!

I saw these wonderful bags made and couldn't help myself! I have kinda gone nuts on them. the base shape is the Scallop Square Stampin' Up! Clear Bigz Die (115950, 21.95) I have certainly gotten my money worth from this one! We did this bag as a class for Super Saturday and I have others clamoring for another class which I will be scheduling shortly.
I am still playing with my options of style and size...I have made 3x3, 3x2, 2x2 and a bitty pocket that is just 2x1 and fits all my fitting tools in it when I go for a sewing consult or fitting. Having lots of fun with it and have more to make but here are a few I have made. I have kits available so you can make your very own for $15...ask me what colors I have available.

Matchbook Card Set

I am having a little fun with my favorite new Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper "Newsprint" I am pretty sure I could use this paper on every project I do for a year and wouldn't get sick of it! So cool and versatile.
These great little sets are being featured in my next class as well as in my August workshops...schedule yours today so you don't miss out!

My sister in stamping always has such wonderful ideas I used her card holder tutorial for the matchbook card holder...thanks Becky!
