Wishing you a Merry Christmas

 

Stampin Up - New Items



Hi Friends,

Yippee, we made it! A whole week of Christmas in July! Brought to us by the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers Hop.  I have had so much fun making cards to post along with the hop. A BIG thank you to Crystal for organizing this hop for all of us! 

Well you guessed it. I did not come up with this design, it is the work of my ever so talented Demo. In my defense, I am in the middle of working 10 days in a row. So there is nothing creative happening in my brain right now, lol. But I did assemble the card, so that counts, lol. This is actually a gift card holder and will come in very handy at Christmas time. I love that I have a few more cards to add to the Christmas card stash. 

Thank you for checking in on me.

Let it Snow

 

Stampin Up - New items


Hi Friends,

I'm not going to lie, all I did was assemble this card together. My very talented Demo came up with the design and used all her new goodies from the new holiday mini catalog. I absolutely love this card. I never think to buy the ribbon you know, and it just finishes up the cards so nicely. 

I hope you are having fun hopping withthe Christmas in July Build your stash holiday cardmakers hop

Thanks for checking in on me,

Sending Warm Christmas wishes

 

Stampin Up Rustic Retreat stamps





Hi Friends,

I pulled out another stamp set I purchased but had never seen ink, Rustric Retreat. I actually loved the sample from the catalog and will still keep it out to make one of those, but I also thought this would make an excellent Christmas card. Love the cozy scene. 

I hope you are enjoying the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers hop. I have enjoyed creating these cards and just taking the time to relax to do something I love. Plus it will be super helpful come December to have these!

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Season's Greetings

 

Stampin Up - Coming Home stamps
Stampin Up Home Together dies
Trimming the Town - paper
Creative Memories - swirvy cutter



Hi Friends,

No, I'm getting tired of playing with these homes, lol. I love the greetings that are in the designer paper and super matchy! I only wish more of the greetings were in English and/or closer together. I'm lucky though, I actually bought two of these packs of paper. Sometimes I just know myself, lol. 

I hope you are having fun hopping along with the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers Hop. 

Thank you for popping in to see me.

Hearts Come Home

 


Stampin Up Coming Home - stamps
Stampin Up Home Together - dies
Stampin Up Trimming The Town - paper
My Favorite Things Secret Santa - Sentiment
Stampin Up Misti Moonlight paper


Hi Friends,

I made a card with this set yesterday and I wanted to make another.  I saw this card and changed a few things, but I really loved the design. I cut the homes out of the designer paper and popped them up with dementionals. I stamped, colored and cut the little car, as well as the wreath. I love the little VW bug car, it might have been the main attraction to this set, but I've had so much fun cutting out the homes in the paper, that I have hardly used the stamps. Sometimes I just don't feel like coloring, so this worked out perfect. 

I hope you can join along in building your stash for the cardmaking holiday hop.  Christmas in July is the best!

Thank you, 

Holly

Merry Little Christmas

My Favorite Things Secret Santa - Sentiment
Stampin Up Misti Moonlight paper and ink
Martha Stewart Snowflake - Punch



Hi Friends,

It's time to Build Your Stash Holiday with the Cardmakers Hop! I totally did not see this one coming so I am already a day late (and a dollar short, lol). I went through my Pinterest pins looking for inspiration and it did not disappoint. I saw this card and remembered that I did have everything I needed to make it. I'm super excited to break open this stamp set, dies, and the super matchy paper. I'm not even sure which holiday catalog this set was in, but I'm pretty sure they are now retired. I usually see something that sparks joy, I buy it, and then it sits on the shelf waiting for inspiration to come. I love it that the dies cut out the homes in the paper, as well as the trees. 

It's so great to build the Christmas card stash up, so come December I will have plenty of them made ahead of time. I hope you can join us in making some cards and linking them ..... and of course, hopping along. 

I hope everyone is well and healthy, 

Holly

Kitsch Deer

 

Avery elle - Kitch Christmas

Hi Friends, 

Welcome to day 8 and the last day of the Build Your Stash Holiday Card Hop!  Today I am inking up these cute deer. When I first saw them, I had to have them. I popped the one in front on foam. They are so adorable! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I had so much fun this week. Thank  you to Crystal for putting this blog hop together so we could all play and not only build our stash, but use the images in our stash. This was the perfect opportunity.
