Hi Creative Stampers
I have a lot planned for 2013, I will be starting video tutorials once a week and will try to post projects daily. My plan for 2013 is to make changes in my life and one of them is being organized, the other is kindness to others. There is a lot of evil in the world and I truly believe we can change that.
I am taking part of Anne Curry (today show) #26acts of kindness in honor of the 26 lives lost in Sandy Hook. I will share with you all the things that I have done. I have made little 3x3 cards and inside each card will read "26 Acts of kindness to honor the lives lost at Sandy Hook elementary school. You are # ( )  in honor of (name of one of the lives lost) .
facebook.com/26acts

#1 was today I mailed a Christmas card to my neighbor with a gift card to a local store. There home was broken into and all their Christmas gifts were stolen and they ransacked their home.

#2 I had purchased a Christmas item; went to the bank and sent this item with the 3x3 card in the tube system and drove away.

It felt really good. I already have two more ready to go.
If you have done any random acts of kindness, please post it here.

Merry Christmas

The True Meaning Of Christmas

 This time of year things are super busy and we are all rushing and forgetting about those around us. We need to take the time and give thanks for the family and the people in our lives.  I know we all want things to be just perfect, just remember the best memories are the ones that are not planned. Take time this season to reflect and Thank God for our loved ones.
 I stamped the image in with the Midnight Muse ink on Whisper White Card stock. I used Versa mark and covered all of the whisper white paper and sprinkled with the iridescent Ice, and heat set with the Heat Tool. The Midnight Muse top layer was Embossed using The Square Lattice Folder.


Stamp set: Come to Bethlehem # 118732, 
Paper Color: Midnight Muse #126843 Whisper White #100730
Ink Color: 126860
Ribbon:126847
Punch: Modern Label # 119849
Embossing Powder: Iridescent Ice #101930
Heat Tool: 129053
Versa Mark:102283
Embossing Folder:119976
Big Shot:113439

The Idea for this card is from a card swap at regional's from Charlene Sanders. I made some changes, but I loved her idea.
Merry Christmas.

Snowmen Family


Hi Creative Stampers
I had made these last year, the only difference is I used a stamp for the face last year, this year I used Stampin' UP! punches. The Snowmen with the gloves are popcorn packets covered with Whisper White Card Stock # 100730, The Snowmen with the mittens are Hershey Bars.




First there was 2 
We Added 3

Then became a Family.

The punches I used for the large snowmen faces are:
1/2 Circle Punch (eyes) #119869, Modern Label Punch (Nose) #119849
I cut on the end by the center circle and went in at a point, This kept
their nose rounded at the end. Heart Punch (for checks) #117193, Ittybitty shape
punches (buttons) 118309.

The Punches I used for the small Snowmen faces are:
Itty Bitty shape punch (eyes) 118319, Modern label punch (nose) just cut smaller #119849
Owl Punch (heart for the checks: circle for the buttons) # 118074.
I used the Stamp and write marker for the mouth # 100082, The white Gel pen for the eyes and checks # 105021
I used the 3/8 stitched ribbon on page # 174, and the Sweater Ribbon from the holiday catalog page#11.
I used snail #104332 for to attach the  bottom paper to the popcorn
 and Sticky Strip #104294 for the Top layer of paper,
 I used the Multi purpose glue #110755
on the face and buttons.
