Just Sayin'

WoohoosideThe Monday Montage gals are taking a break to recover from the holidays, but we'll be back next week with more creative goodness to share.

In a few days, you'll be able to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I've been working all weekend on creating samples and I know you are going to love many of the new products!  I figured it was time for a little sneak peek.

This card features 2 new stamp sets......Life in the Forest and Just Sayin'.  There are coordinating Word Bubble Framelits dies to go along with the Just Sayin' stamp set.  It's probably my favorite item(s) so far!

WoohooYou might be wondering about the cheese......I cut the cheese with my Silhouette Cameo.  Hmmmm....that doesn't sound quite right.  Well, you know what I mean.  I used Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight cardstock, cutting twice with a download from the Silhoutte online store.  Easy-peasy!

The sentiment inside will say....."I love you more than CHEESE".  When my son was younger, he had a songbook by Sandra Boynton that featured a song by that title.  We used to sing it together and we still use that saying in our family.  You can listen to a snippet of it here.

If you would like to see more sneak peeks, be sure to LIKE my Facebook page.  My fans have already been treated to a few already!

Happy Stampin'

The holidays are certainly in full swing and I am a BUSY girl!  For this blog hop, I'm going to share a really quick & easy flip card made with the new Circle Card Thinlets die and the Christmas Messages stamp set.  You can put this card together in just a matter of minutes!


The card looks like the above pic when closed and when you open it.....


These flip cards are so much fun and the die does all the hard work for you!

Note:  I did a little faux stitching on the side, but you can easily skip it if you are short on time.

Monday Montage 8

Sadly, I had to miss the last blog hop.  A few hours before I was to have my post ready, a tornado went through our town.  There was lots of damage, but fortunately no loss of life.  We had no electricity for about 48 hours and a substantial amount of clean-up in our yard.....but we feel so lucky!

Needless to say, I won't be sharing my last project with you since it was for Thanksgiving.  And I haven't had a chance to stamp anything new, so I'm sharing two of my display stamper projects from convention.  Yeah, I made these back in May!


Both projects are very simple.  Of course, if you are just starting your holiday stamping, simple is a must!
