Season's Givings Blog Hop

Welcome to year two of the Seasons Giving Blog Hop!

This has been a great year, and while many things changed for me with regards to design work, (all positive) even more things changed at home with my health and for that I am truly thankful! 

Please disregard my sloppy photo- I am behind in cleaning, (CHA prep has taken over!) and I had to slide everything off onto the floor to even find counter space! ;)

There's a mix of stamps, papers, inks, embellishments, adhesives and who knows what else.
Go ahead and leave me a comment telling me what you are most excited for this upcoming new year.  The give away will end Sunday the 5th.  Check back on the 6th for a winner!

And here's one of my favorite cards of 2013…(I think it was in a CardMaker SIP earlier this year)  Must be the tag shape, not sure why I like it so.   It has actually been sitting on my desk for a while now and I often use the design over again.

Here's the full list of everyone who is offering up something to celebrate their thankfulness today!





HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here's to a wonderful 2014!

Last minute gift tags-

Merry Christmas Eve!

I am always one for some type of last minute addition to our gifts, and today I have a few easy gift tags you could use on your packages or on a bottle of cheer for your hostess.

Both of these tags use the Monterey Pine wood pieces from Imagine Crafts.  This star one was inked with red Memento Luxe before being adhered to my star tag that had been spritzed with Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

The tree was inked in Olive Grove before being added to the Delicata stamped tag.  I love that ink! ;)

You could easily tie either one onto a gift, a bag, or a bottle of cheer and dress up the occasion!  Or, switch it up for New Years and bring it to your New Years Eve party!

Merry Christmas in Golden Delicata

The countdown is on! Christmas is right around the corner and I am NOT even close to ready! Here's a Christmas card though that I Did manage to create last week while avoiding other things that need to be done…  ;)
I started with a white card base and spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Gold about 6 times until I like the result-full overall sheer shimmery color coverage, not splotchy at all!    I stamped my sentiment in Golden Glitz Delicata ink, and then adhered my die cuts.

Here's a close up so you get an idea of just how much shimmer there is. It isn't easy to photograph!  
Overall, I really love how it turned out- the Shimmer Spritzes are my favorite way to add sparkle and shine to any project!!

To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Lots of Thanks

Thank you cards are my fave- I just love a great sentiment set-and Lots of Thanks has lots of great fonts and ways of saying thanks! ;)  I decided to pair up the two sentiments using inks from the patterned paper.  I finished it off with a button from the Cherry red collection. 
Celebration Diva

My last card uses one of my go to color palettes paired with Debbie's newest set Celebration Diva.  I really like the idea of the party streamers in air- so I started with that. I love the fun little champagne cooler, it's highlighted with a bit of stickles for bubbles. 

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
