Poinsettia Box

Creative time today! 

Gotta love when you have finished all your "paper work" and can finally get some creative time.  Finally, I completed this little box for one of my Dec club project and I love the way it turned out with the poinsettia on top.  The Festive Flower punch is a new fave!

 The poinsettia sits on top of the belly band and when you slide it off the box POPS! open.  I'm going to get some Lindt chocolates for the inside and use these for Christmas dinner.  I think they will look pretty cute!

Merry Moments and Peaceful Pines

Thanks to all those to stopped by to visit me at the Cranston Christmas Bazaar! It's becoming VERY real that Christmas is coming soon. FINALLY, I started my own cards on Thursday! Shopping . . . not so much.

I have one more craft fair left at the Strathcona, Christie Aspen community Center on Sat, Dec 5th so if you need anymore stocking stuffers you know where to find me! 
277 Strathcona Drive SW

Be there or be square!

I helped design some cards for a friend and she chose the Peaceful Pines stamp set.  This set was my #1 purchase set when I saw the catalogue back in July but it has been one that has stumped me.  When I paired it with the Merry Moments Designer Series paper - Voila! the ideas finally came!

I'm excited to stamp with new stampers on Tuesday evening.  If you are free contact me ASAP to join me for my Coffee, Cookies and Cards class.  $15 and these 3 cards are yours! I provide the supplies and you contribute the labour :)

Have a great rest of your weekend and stay safe in the snow on Monday!   Cheers,

Stamping Challenge cards

I've been busy creating goodies for my upcoming craft fair but NOT eating the treats - yay me!

Last month I had a great downline meeting and each month I'm challenging them to think outside the box.  I host a Creative Challenge that has a few embellishments in an envelope and they can create any occasion card and share it at the next meeting.

Last month I gave each a selection of materials - metallic doily, Home for Christmas buttons and a Whisper White card base. They could use one or all of the buttons and any other current Stampin UP supplies.

This is what they created. Aren't they amazing!
