OH MY GOSH - I CAN'T WAIT

I can't wait for this!  Saleabration by SU! is just around the corner. This is at the top of my list. There are going to be tons you can do with this.  Stock up on other supplies now that can go with this by heading over to the YEAR END CLEARANCE!  www.scrappinriri.stampinup.net




SWEATER CARD SU! STYLE - DYNAMIC TEXTURE EMBOSSING FOLDER

The SU! Dynamic Texture Embossing Folder is Amazing!  It gives really deep characteristic impressions.  Look at this awesome SWEATER CARD I created and shared with my "Friends Giving" crafters. We made several of these.
I can't wait to give several of these out for the holidays and in the snowy weather we probably will experience come January or sooner - since an Arctic Blast is due in to the MidAtlantic this weekend.

Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 143537
Price: $10.00
It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design.

Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders—great for card fronts and accents.

* 1 folder
* 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm)
* Use with Big Shot

AS AUTUMN FADES INTO WINTER - CARD FOR MY MOTHER

Most of you know I send my mother a homemade card at least once a week. As Autumn is now fading into winter, this card was perfect.  I love using my stash of supplies.  One of my favorite card stock colors is Marina Mist by SU!  I just used the last of it, so it's on my order this week.  I also used THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES stamp set by SU!  I have gotten a lot of mileage from that set.
 I love how this stamp set has stamps for every season.  Look at the trees on the inside of the card. They so remind me of winter.

SU! COOKIE CUTTER FOR CHRISTMAS COOKIE EXCHANGE

So it's that's time of the year again for Christmas Tree and Holiday Decorating and the new tradition my small group from Nativity has started - Christmas Cookie Exchange.  Most who know me, know that I rarely cook or bake. Crafting?  I do that almost every day of my life and love it, but cooking is not really a passion. When I was younger, I did bake like crazy and I also cooked quite a bit, or at least helped.  So, this was a challenge, but I found the secret ingredient for Christmas Cookies - it's REAL BUTTER! 

My cookies are OATMEAL CRANBERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP.  I even loved these cookies and probably made a few too many because I ate many of them myself.  Today, I'll share with you the packaging, because it's all Stampin Up!  Especially the Tag, which uses the SU! Tag Punch that is ON SALE right now and the adorable Gingerbread man is from the SU! stamp set COOKIE CUTTER CHRISTMAS which has a coordinating punch (get yours at a savings right now from SU! HERE, by ordering them together as a bundle).  I also used some SU! ribbons and Trim and an older sentiment, but there is one just like it in the current catalog that I feature at the bottom of the post.

Happy Eatings and Crafting Everyone!  It's like 22 days until Christmas now, right?

MERRY CHRISTMAS


We Wish You A Hygge Christmas!


Valerie Moody Corp Post Image 1
So, it’s mid-November. The leaves are falling, we’ve turned back the clocks, and the nights are drawing in. I personally love this time of year! It’s an excuse to get cozy at home with my family and enjoy those warming comforts we all love. Perhaps a roaring fire, a warm blanket, or a mug of hot chocolate? The Danish call this state of warm, cozy happiness hygge (pronounced “hooga”).
Typically at this time of year our thoughts turn to the upcoming holidays, and I wanted to incorporate this hygge feeling into my gifts this year. Stampin’ Up! has a wide variety of products in their catalogs to help us create warm and happy gifts for our friends and family, and I thought I’d share my hot chocolate gift creation with you today.
Valerie Moody Corp Post Image 2
I created my own “gift crate” to present my selection of hot chocolate goodies. I made a simple rectangular box from Basic Gray Cardstock (item 121044) stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp (item 133035). I then added Copper Foil Sheet (item 142020) strips to the corners to give more of a “crate” feel (while reinforcing the corners at the same time).
Valerie Moody Corp Post Image 3Another great range of products Stampin’ Up! offers is their assortment of packaging options. I’ve used several in my project for my various hot chocolate ingredients. I used a Petite Café Gift Bag (item 135826) for my hot chocolate mix, a Clear Tiny Treat Box (item 141699) for my chocolate chips, a 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag (item 141703) for my chocolate spoons, and a 6" x 17" Gusseted Cellophane Bag (item 142001) for the marshmallows (you always need lots of marshmallows)!
Valerie Moody Corp Post Image 4To serve the hot chocolate, I also provided some cups. I took standard hot drink cups and removed the brown sleeve. I then used the sleeve as a template to create my own using Blushing Bride Cardstock (item 131198), which I then embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item 143537) before wrapping it back around the cup. I mean—you can’t get more warm and cozy than with knitting, can you?
Valerie Moody Corp Post Image 5Finally, I finished all my items off with tags created using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (item 145372) cut from Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045) and tied with Blushing Bride Solid Baker’s Twine (item 141683). I added sentiments from the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Set (item 142040) and heat embossed the tags using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder  (item 109132). The sentiment for my crate is from the Wonderful Year Stamp Set (item 142158). I created the rectangular tag using the largest square from the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies and the partial die cutting technique.
Do you love the Danish idea of hygge, of creating a warm and cozy atmosphere this season surrounded by good friends, good food, and fun times? I sure do, and I wish you all a “Hygge Christmas”!

HAPPY RETIREMENT - CARD FOR GENEVA S.

This is a card I made for a colleague at work who retired.  I almost forgot to post it and so many didn't get to see it up close and personal. I used some of my retired SU! stamps and also TEENY TINY WISHES.  I love that stamp set.

 The butterfly is the large THNLIT that coordinates with the WONDERFUL WINGS set.
Geneva, enjoy every minute of your retirement!
