While The Turkey Is Roasting.......

Every Thanksgiving while the turkey is roasting, we used to make a gingerbread house with the children, but my son has lots of food allergies and so it isn't quite as much fun any more, well it wasn't until we came up with making a gingerbread house without actually using food and now thanks to Decor Accents - Design-a-House #120911 $5.95 - Holiday Mini Page 37, our joint family creativity is back in full swing - Why don't you make this the year that you begin this fun tradition too....

Dear Santa I'm Really, Really Wishing For A Big Shot For Christmas!

When the Big Shot first came out I was a bit unsure of making the investment, but my dear Husband encouraged me to go ahead and buy one. Would someone please remind me to thank him? I can't believe how much I use it.

When my ladies first saw the Big Shot, I didn't think they'd invest in one, but I had a problem - I couldn't stop using my Big Shot even though I tried really hard because I knew that not everyone had one. Guess what? Now nearly all my ladies own a Big Shot and now they can't stop using them either!

Sooooo, if you don't have a Big Shot yet, remember to ask Santa very nicely, or tell one of your loved ones that they can order you one through me, where they'll receive preferred pricing on the product and shipping or ask them for a gift card which they can also get from me.

The dry embossing on these cards took just seconds using my Big Shot and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #120902 Page 26 of the Holiday Mini $7.95

To create the sliding sledding children, I simply cut a slit in the front of the card and inserted a stamped strip of coordinating card.

I added a little sparkle using Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and my Two Way Glue Pen.

Stamp Club December 2010

Normally I like to wait and share our stamp club project, but since our next meeting falls so close to Christmas I wanted to share this fun idea with you now.

You know those little school photos that you send out, wouldn't it be cute to tuck them inside this cute card?
