The new Holiday Mini Catalog is LIVE 
August 28, 2014 thru January 5, 2015

I had some fun making this Winter Collage with the NEW Note Tag Punch (135860)! I've seen some wonderful "inchie" Collages and wanted to make one with a "punch" twist. The new Holiday Mini Catalog is LIVE August 28, 2014 thru January 5, 2015 and you can order a punch for yourself.  I know I used lots of different product from the HOLIDAY MINI CATALOG but I featured only 1, yes ONE, stamp set- Holiday Home (135095) on page 16. Look at at the fun stuff on page 22 - I also purchased!  All is Calm Washi Tape, Frosted Sequins, Lost Lagoon Ribbon , & All is Calm DSP.  

You can easily turn this into a Seasonal Calendar Collage by taking out 2 tags and replacing it in the center or corner  with December (2014 & 15), January & February.

Here are my inserts for my Project Life by Stampin' UP! Disney Swap for our summer Inspire Create & Share Convention. I also included Essential Hardware Clips and some Shrink Art to embellish the pages.   These inserts were made using My Digital Studio, printed at home (only because Stampin' Up! was in the middle of changing Professional Printing Company). I can't wait to add some photos and complete the pages!

I used the Project Life Photo Page and Corner Rounder.

How about decorating some Cookie Boxes?  I bought cookies for Harrison & Addy and thought they would (or I would) love a box to go with them!  The first is Elmo and the second reminds me of Jake the Pirate!  Truth be told....

A wonderful addition to our stamp family are Rotary Stamps.  I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to make the BACK2SCHOOL banner. It is layered on the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder. I have been on my complaining pedestal lately about how short the Summer Break is! .... that said, the children & staff are all back in class!

I used a Stampin' Write Marker to color in a few geometric triangles and the white circles on the Apple.

Cutting some corners with this card.... literally!  I traced a 3 1/2" circle around the bottom left corner front and removed it to reveal some pattern paper that duplicated the sentiment layer on the front. Then I repeated the rounded corner on that too. To give it the "retro look",  I liked placing Sweet Sadie Washi Tape Layers across the bottom.  Another fun addition is the Word Bubble Woo Hoo! inside. 

I love that so many stamp sets have matching Framelits to make cutting out stamped images easy!  Once in a while I still have to fussy cut, but would rather use Framelits and my Big Shot!  Did you know we are having a wonderful Special featuring the Big Shot?  Contact your demonstrator or ME to order a Big Shot Bundle before the end of the month.
