Merry Christmas Card - My Hero Ronald McDonald Stamp Set

Hello,

My card today is one that showcase the new Ronald McDonald stamp set called " My Hero". Each year Stampin' Up! features a special stamp set that helps support the Ronald McDonald House Charities across North America. And the best part is that Stampin' Up! donates $3 from each stamp set to help support the RMHC!

My card is one that I created using a sketch that I saw online! I love using sketches as they are just a puzzle waiting to be solved!! I used the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper as for my pattern paper and the embossing folder that I used was Holly. I love the details in this folder!!

Snowflake Card

Hello,

Yahoo, it's snowing and it's just feels more like the festival season!! I don't think we are going to get enough to cover the ground or to have a white Christmas but it sure is pretty to look at while I sip on some yummy hot chocolate!!

All these snowflakes made me think of this card that I made a few weeks ago. It used the snowflakes from the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set.

Oh What Fun Christmas Tags

Hello,

I hope you are having a great day!! The count down is on...only 10 more sleeps till the big day. I'm so excited as all my wrapping is done for what I had so far. I just need to pick up a few more things and then I will be done. This makes me so happy as I'm WAY of head of the game then last year. But it also helps that I'm home this year and I have been able to get things done when I have been feeling better. I still get tired very easily and most afternoons I spent on the couch but it's a good way to rest my body so that it can heal.

One of the things that I did this year was used the Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit. This kit makes 30 tags, 3 each of 10 designs. And the best part is that it includes all the supplies you need to create the tags. I would suggest using the coordinating Oh, What Fun stamp set.

These tags came together so quick and easy. I love how they add that extra surprise and delight on top of my packages!!

Winter Wonderland

Hello,

As you can see by my title, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. I'm not sure that is going to happen as the temperatures are very mild and there is no chance of flurries till next week. We might have a light dusting of snow but I'm not counting on the long range forecast. This will be the second year in a row for a green Christmas and that makes me sad. I don't know about you but this time of year is more magical with snow on the ground.

My project today used the Wonderland stamp set. One of the reason I love this stamp set is because of the gorgeous tree's!!

I paired it with the stunning Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper. I'm not sure why I have not used more of this paper this season as it's gorgeous!!

Snowman Treat Bags

Hello,

I hope you are having a great weekend. I can't believe that Christmas is only 12 days away? Are you ready? With being off this holiday season, I feel like I'm ahead of the game this year. I only have a few more gifts to pick up and I will start the wrapping process in the next few days. If you are still shopping, I wish you good luck and don't forget about the awesome Year End Sale that Stampin' Up! is having. You can find tons of gifts for your loves ones. Trust me they would LOVE a stocking filled with crafting supplies!!!

A few weeks ago, my mom asked me if I could make her something that she could give her coworkers at their Christmas Party. She knew that she wanted to do something with a chocolate bar, hot chocolate and candy canes. I thought we could make Snowman Soup.

I showed her a few idea's on Pinterest and then we came up with this one.

IMG_4106

We used the retired favourite "Top Note Die" to create the Snowman face and hats.

IMG_4107

Then add some circle punches for the eyes, a carrot nose and a mouth and you have the cutest snowman around!!

IMG_4108

I can't wait to hear how my mom's co-workers like their snowman soup! Still looking for idea's as these would make great stocking stuffers, secret santa gifts, or as favours at a party!!

You can find all the supplies I used at the bottom of this blog post ( except for the top note die as it's retired) and you will also find them in my Canadian Online Store!!

Jolly Snowman

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend. It was a nice and relaxing one around here. Corrie and Alison were in Whitby for a hockey tournament, they made it all the way to the semi's but lost in the semi-finals. Emily had to work all weekend and I spent some time in my studio stamping with new products. I'm participating in a new Occasions Swap and my swaps needed to be in the mail by this week. I'm excited to say that they are all done and will be mailed today. Yesterday, my co-workers stopped by for a visit along with my parents and in-laws. Yesterday was Corrie's and mine's birthday. Yes we share the same birthday, I'm only 11 hours older. We decided that we will celebrate our birthday with supper out once I'm feeling up to it and can eat more variety of foods.

My card today was one that I received as a swap from my down line Rebecca while we were at the Mississauga Onstage Event.

Christmas Card

Hello,

Sorry for being missing in action the few days. I would think about posting then got side track and the next thing I know it's been a few days. I'm still spending most days on the couch. I tried to do a few things and then I get tired very easily. I'm slowly starting to introduce those foods that I have not been able to have for over a month like dairy. Oh, I can't wait for the day that I can have a hamburger and fries!! Hopefully in the New Year, I can give this a try!!

My card today was one that we created last month in our Christmas Stamp a Stack! I wanted to keep these cards simple in case they wanted to mass produce them if they still had cards to make!!

 

DSC_0243

I went with the tradition colours of Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadows ( I love this colour for Christmas) and Whisper White. Those colours look striking together!! My greeting is from the Oh, What Fun stamp set. This is one stamp set that you would like in your collection as it's perfect for cards, Memory Keeping, Scrapbooking and Tags. And the best part is that is coordinates with our Oh What Fun Project Kit.

I hope you will visit my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Store and browse around. You will find the weekly deals here along with huge discount product in the Clearance Rack!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin'

Advent Calendar

Hello,

I can't believe that it's December 1st already and I haven't started my Christmas shopping!! I'm hoping that next week I can tackle this task as I'm starting to feel better each day. It might take me a few trips to the mall, but I will go with a plan and hope that I can cross people off my list!!

Well, we put up our tree on Sunday and we didn't even have to do rock, paper and scissors! Mr. Grinch ( aka my wonderful husband) caved and we now have a beautiful Christmas tree in our family room. I decided to let the girls decorate the tree this year and they did a fabulous job ( okay I have to admit that I have move around a few ornaments, LOL).

One of our favourite traditions at this time of year is an advent calendar. We love opening that little door each day to find a special little gift waiting for us. In the past we have had Lego calendars, and chocolate calendars. Still as an adult I love to have one to open each day!

This year, I added a special advent calendar that will be cherished for years to come. This was one was inspired by my bestie Allison Okamitsu from Nice people Stamp! Allison created this beautiful advent calendar for the Stampin' Up! corporate blog a few weeks back. And as soon as I saw it, I knew that I had to create it. Thanks Allison for the inspiration!!

DSC_0251

I love how each box is decorated beautiful with the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. This paper is a gorgeous as it has a vintage feel to it!

DSC_0252

The bottom reminds me of a beautiful tree skirt wrapped around the tree.

DSC_0253

My tree has 26 boxes as the top one doesn't open. This top box is marked with special symbols from the Hello December 2015 Project Life Accessory kit and I finished it off with a Mossy Meadows bow.

So do you have any favourite traditions that you do in your house during December? I would love to hear about them!!

I hope you will visit my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Store and browse around. You will find the weekly deals here along with huge discount product in the Clearance Rack.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
