Well, this is a crafty mornings work!  It took about 4 coffees and 4 hours this morning to punch and diecut  250 leaves and branches, it costed me: 10 sticky fingers and a good portion of patience!

I have been to a number of Stampin‘ Up team events and workshops this last month, lots of swapping and  gathering of so many good ideas from my very talented colleagues and team members. A similar wreath was posted by Mikaela Titheridge on our special FB page for Demos only. (My No. 1 benefit of being a demonstrator) I saw so many different gorgeous wreaths with the new Stampin‘ Up stamp and thinlits bundle „Eisblüten“ ( that I unfortunately do not have (yet) !)  😀 Oooooo Noooo! PANICK!

After getting over the fact that I did not have something… I decided to combine a few things I DO own „Stille Nacht“, “ Blütentraum“, „Starke Würzeln“ and last but not least a fabulous new hand punch „Zier Zweig“. It was not my usual quick project wedged between scrubbing the bathroom and throwing in a load of laundry, but it was really worth sitting down and taking my time to make! (Only kidding about the scrubbing part!) I am sure you get the point, and I do actually throw in a load or two of laundry between projects…well sometimes I do…or at least plan to do it… hope that counts for something! 😀

If you want to see more of my projects and you live in my area, then send me an email and please stop by my open house on this coming Saturday between 13:00-17:00!

 

Have a very crafty day!

Serene Xmas

Serene Xmas

It all started out with my usual dilemma…

I bought this stamp set „Serene Garden“ in the summer to do summery cards and decorations. As it happens, it was sitting on my craft table for a long time unopened gathering dust, waiting for the right project to come along.

Well, it didn’t … eventually, it got covered by other „stuff“.

As I was finished working on my fall workshop projects and beginning to prepare my Christmas Card Workshop, there was a rare moment where I thought I should at least clean off a „part“ of my table. And what do you know…there it was, staring me in the face…instant GUILT came over me for buying and hoarding stamps again without using them!

Born of all the guilt, not to mention the numerous red and green scraps on my crafting table, this „Post-it“ Note gift, perfect for my Christmas Card Buffet was created !!! YAY! Another vote for thinking outside the box.  I think I will start a challenge making Xmas cards with summer stamps!

I hope you like it.  I am really proud to find more use for this beautiful stamp set!

Have a great day!
