Last Day to Order This Paper

I love a steaming mug of liquid in the winter. I’ll start with tea, honey and a twist of lemon, enjoy homemade vegetable or chicken stock with lunch then snuggle in with a hot cup of cocoa in the afternoon.

So this designer series paper is perfect to create a few cards with.

I did bring the chocolate chip cookies. I prefer them fresh out of the oven though. Dad likes them dry.

Here are the rest of the patterns in the Night Before Christmas paper pack item number 150437. It’s a 6×6 inch stack with 48 pieces, 4 each of 12 designs. This stack pack is available through the end of today only though. The Spring catalog goes live tomorrow!

ICS Blog Hop Small Bloom Punch


Thank you for hopping around with us as we share paper crafting projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the Sale-A-Bration brochure which goes lives on January 3rd! You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Sale-A-Bration product I am featuring is the Small Bloom Punch. I used the Poppy Moments stamp set to stamp the flowers in Poppy Parade ink on scrap whisper white. Then used the Small Bloom Punch to create the flower shapes.

The Golden Honey Specialty designer series paper was cut to 4×4 inches and then cut at a diagonal from corner to corner along the gold foil line.

The Poppy Moments die cuts were used to create Poppy Parade flower shape and outline and whisper white sentiment piece.1 1 20bloghop2-001

The Trucks

I meant to post these trucks earlier this week. Sugar Cookie Social guests made them for what I intended to be a party favor to hold the snack sack and chocolate in the truck bed. I bought the snacks before I made a sample of the trucks as you can see the snacks are too large for the truck bed. A chocolate kiss would fit though.

I am stretching my fall design because it’s still fall here where I live. No snow has stuck on the ground yet, just wet leaves. I worked a good portion of those into the garden on Tuesday. My vegetables will grow high and pest free next year!

Assembly line stamping…I use a desk calendar blotter and past month calendar pages for a larger stamping area when assembly line stamping.

I snail mailed a stack of these cards for the Sugar Cookie Social invitations because I really liked the color combination. It was fun to take the time to custom create my own designer series paper too. Even if you did not get an invitation, you are still welcome to attend. Sugar Cookie Social event details are in this post. Hope you can make it!

This is how I roll

My Mom wanted to know how I got my stamp expo display set up to my booth. Here you go Mom!


My Lands’ End rolling suitcases I purchased years ago when I worked as a call agent have served me well over the years. Countless vacations to far away places, trips up and down the interstate and short jaunts to the expo:) I can pack 5 tubs (that equals 5 projects) per suitcase, strap on the Big Shot on top of one suitcase and my catalog bag on the other and away I roll!

The expo center has rolling carts to transport my containers to my car. I went home with a lighter load so that helps with pack up.

Thanks to everyone that stopped at my booth. I’ll be following up with you in the next week. If you have found some goodies in the catalogs you would like to order, you can do so by clicking on Shop Now on the right side of my blog. Please use host code EKNVNV97 if your order is less than $150. If it is over $150, do not use the code so you can redeem all the host rewards!

I have deglitterized the cutting table from preparing the snow peeps make-n-take I featured at my booth. Tomorrow I tackle deglitterizing the main table where I prepared the kits!

Here are the 2 make-n-takes. Can you guess which one was more popular? Leave a comment with your guess. Toodles!
