Mojo Monday 220

I had so much fun following yesterday's card challenge I decided to do another one.   These are seriously addicting!  This was from the Mojo Monday Design Team

Here is their sketch...

Here is my design...

Once again this design is using products from the upcoming 2012 Occasions Mini catalog.  I will post pictures of the ribbon, brads, simply scrappin kit, and stamps in a few weeks.   For now here is a word for you the current stamp set I used. 

I am sticking with this color theme from the Spring Fever Simply Scrappin Kit because eventually I am going to design a stamp class using this kit.   ohh what fun!

Happy Monday!!!

Gnome Sweet Gnome

I have seen the Pal Paper Arts ladies and have been planning for weeks to enter one of their challenges, I guess I just needed some motivation.   I just opened a Stampin Up box the other day containing a new set from the 2012 Occasions Mini.  I never would have picked this set out on my own... but I won it and now that I have gotten to hold it and use it I LOVE IT!!!
So, here is my first ever challenge card!  Pals Paper Arts Design team has weekly challenges, visit them Here.  This is the sketch for this week's challenge.
It was really fun trying to take the design and create something with it.  I'll post pictures of the Simply Scrappin kit and Stamp set soon!

Wish me luck!!!

Sneak Peek

Christmas Card Sneak Peek Day 5

Yay for day 5!  I'm excited because I got more of my prep work done today.  Ahhh I'm getting excited.  The house is clean, I am ready to go.  I even looked up the Christmas music station on Comcast today.  Ready to go!  

Here is card 5:
I loved these candy cane stickers that came with the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' kit, so I had to use them on a card... they would be cute in a scrapbook too but who has time for that!!!  And for this card you don't even need to stamp anything.

Sneak Peek

Christmas Card Sneak Peek Day # 4

I know everyone has "Those" mornings.... where you actually start to consider going back to bed, and staying there all day hoping maybe you will have better luck with tomorrow morning.

Sadly, that was my morning. But, in full suck-it-up-mode I dragged myself out of bed and now realizing that the Christmas card workshop is only four days away I am shaking off my desire to stay camped out under my pillows and blankets of safety and I am motivating myself to get to work.

Here is your sneak peek for the 4th card we will be making....

This tree is one of my favorite Christmas tree stamps, it is from Season of Joy. 

Now to brave the day ahead of me, it can only get better.... right??

Stamp sets I used:
Season of Joy (Item # 110384)

And as you may have picked up on over the last few days, Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit (Item # 124007)
