There are so many terrific new things in the Holiday Catalog! Would you like to see MORE of some of the products you can get? Here are a few short videos highlighting some of the products available for you to use in your holiday preparations this year.

Christmas Gift Tags Kit

This kit makes 30 detailed tags to adorn you Christmas presents. It even comes with a gorgeous tin to keep your tags in.... which is also perfect to give as a gift! I'm offering a class for this kit and the card kit in the previous post. The cool thing about taking this FREE class, is that you don't have to order the stamp set, because I've already got it!

Rooted in Nature

Who doesn't love trees? This Rooted in Nature Bundle has a ton of products in it: a double stamp set and a double set of thinlits framelits. What's especially cool about this set of framelits is the detailed embossing leaves. You can emboss the texture in the leaf, then cut it out! That gives you such an awesome look!!

Obession With Blue

The new Holiday catalogs are out and in your hands! There's so much to love in that catalog isn't there? One of my favorites is the Country Home stamp set and the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impressons embossing folder. These deeper detail embossing folders are amazing! I simply adore old Tin Tile ceilings and country decorating, so these products were the obvious choice for me to buy. Those of you who know me, realize that blue is far beyond my favorite color, it is my OBSESSION! My love affair with blue began in elementary school. I wanted blue everything!! Of course, what color did my Mom decorate my room with??? Pink, cause I was a little girl in the 60's. Nevermind that I was a tomboy who was obsessed with blue. Hmmmm that might be exactly why she used pink in my bedroom! lol

This card is an ode to blue. I stamped the flowers on the diecut circle and colored them with alcohol ink markers. Then I stamped the pitcher on another piece of cardstock, colored it and cut it out. You've seen embossing folders used with ink before right? If you haven't seen this technique before, it is very easy. I inked up a brayer with Night of Navy ink, then rolled it right on the embossing folder. Next I placed my thick Whisper White card stock inside and ran it through the Big Shot. Voila! I had instant blue and white tiles. Clean up is a breeze, you simply run the embossing folder under water and it washes away the ink. Blue makes me soooo happy!!
