Holly Jolly quick and easy card idea

Sing it with me! Have a Holly Jolly Christmas! It's the best time of the year! I love the saying Holly Jolly and the plaid paper makes me happy! This card is so easy to make you can make dozens of them in a single weekend! There's a full list of the products I used, but pick out your favorite paper and coordinating colors and make your own!

Christmas card vertical and horizontal versions. These cards will allow you to make tons of cards quickly and easily. You can change the look of the card by making them horizontal or vertical. Different accent layer colors also change the look of the card.

Ready to make multiple Christmas cards

Using colors from the paper and a classic layout lets you make multiples of a card like this very quickly! You can get 12 cards from one piece of 12"x12" papers. Stop hoarding the papers and get some cards made!

Honor Flight Card October 2018

Honor flight card 0ct 2018

Our team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators called the Song of My Heart Stampers headed up by Lyssa Zwolanek and based in Watertown, WI has been providing cards for the Badger Honor Flights from Madison and Milwaukee, WI for the past many years. Kathy Van Duser brought this worthy cause to our group and heads up the project every month. This month we decided to do a work night instead of holding a team meeting. Several of us prepped cards and brought them for everyone to put together. The card is based on a design I saw on Pinterest, but I changed some things up to use products that I had on hand. Take a look at the supply list and the step by step instructions.

Cute Halloween Card from Kari H

Trick or tweet wm

Celebrate with a cute birdie trick or tweeter! I'm not big on Halloween, but when my stampin partner Kari presented this cute card at our last card making party I fell in love with the stamp set "Trick or Tweeter". There are lots of cute critters in the set and they are sure to be a cute part of your non-scary Halloween items!

Sometimes you just need a little time to yourself

I am the one who crafts projects for other's to make and to give them ideas of projects that they might want to do. So when I need to relax and want to craft, I pull out my Paper Pumpkin kits.

Paper Pumpkin Sept 2018

They are fast to put together, projects are designed to take 15 to 45 minutes. Everything that is needed comes in one little box and it arrives like clockwork every month! If you have tried it before, I suggest you try it again! The projects and the quality of materials are far superior to the early days! If you haven't ever given it a try, I suggest you try it. You can bring the kits with you when you travel.

The most recent kit was treat holders. Maybe you don't pass out treats at home, or make something for your co-workers? You can always use the kits with other supplies you have at home  to make cards (or pick up some notecards with envelopes) or banners or scrapbook pages! 

Alternate ideas for the kit

Do you know someone who is on a fixed income but likes to craft? This could be the perfect gift for them. You can subscribe and have the kits sent to another.  Such an awesome gift idea for someone you love!

Beautiful card ideas

Each month the kit is a surprise. Some times it makes cards and some times treat holders, home decor, or gift ideas. You can postpone a kit if you aren't going to be home and resume when you are ready. You can cancel at anytime or add more kits ahead if you know you will have company coming over! It is a versatile program and might just be your cup of tea!

Nothing Sweeter Catalog Case

Ns sept wm

One of the things I love best about the Nothing Sweeter stamp set and bundle is the ease to make treat holders, cards, or add little embellsihements to gifts. This was the first set I purchased out of the Holiday Catalog this year. I used one of the samples shown for the card set to inspire a project I presented at a recent card making party.
