Today was kinda a lazy day… went and got a sling for my arm. Talk about a weird feeling! I fractured my radial head – no cast for that.

The doctor said I have to wear it for about 3 – 4 weeks … okkkkk.

I wore it for about 3 hours and then it had to come off so I could make a couple of cards. :) Creativity doesn’t wait for mended arms!

But then the pain meds started to kick in…..

So my blog post is not all up and running like it should be…

But I know you all forgive me, because I FRACTURED my arm and seriously messed up my ankle about as much as you can without breaking it, Right?

Well, with all that said, I hope you enjoy the below video featuring the Stars Framelits and Christmas Tagables Photopolymer set!

fall paper wreath designer series paper wreath fall wreath

Looking for a fresh fall wreath that is easy to make? Look no further! This Festive Fall Paper Wreath takes less than an hour to complete and only requires a wreath form, straight pins, a bone folder and 6 pieces of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, cut into 1/2″ strips. This wreath uses the 2014-2016 In-Colors Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow – which are so rich, regal and vibrant they pretty much scream fall – while totally being on trend!

 

Check out the “how-to” with the video below!

*In unrelated news (somewhat) I stepped down on my left foot wrong Saturday, which caused my ankle to roll outwards and for me to take a little tumble. I am okay – except I have a seriously bruised left ankle, a really swollen left foot, and somehow managed to fracture my right arm.

Of course, on Sunday, I wanted to finish the videos I was in the middle of making when all this falling business occurred. So – if you see me moving a little slower in upcoming videos or if my voice sounds like I am wincing in a bit of pain, it is probably because I am.

I made those videos Sunday – the day after incident – and just found out my arm was fractured today (Monday) – so it isn’t like I *KNEW* I was working with a broken arm. But I do know it now, and totally have my foot propped up and my arm stabilized while I use my Dragon software to type. :)

If you check out my Facebook page, I have a pretty gross photo of my ankle you can look at!

Never be without a gift box again! The Gift Box Punch Board makes it so easy to make a variety of box sizes – and you don’t even need adhesive!

For this gift box, I started with an 8″ x 8 ” piece of Basic Gray card stock. I used the arrows from the Show & Tell 2 photopolymer stamp set to create the background images on the box (which you might recognize from the Arrow Card I made a while back).

Check out the video below to see exactly how I made this gift box!

Stampin’ Up! is currently experiencing some significant delays at the west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers. These delays have and will impact items coming in from China until an agreement is reached.  The Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (item 135851), the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die (item 135853), and the Tree Punch (item 135859) are currently on backorder due to this delay and the list will likely get longer as the strike continues. This may also result in delayed shipping of the November Paper Pumpkin kit.

Currently, the following items are on backorder; backordered items will be available on or before the date indicated.

Merry Christmas Stampin Up Card Ideas Christmas Cards Star Card

 

Who says Christmas Cards should be red and green? Using Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla as the color palette of this card creates a refined country look – especially with that linen thread!

  • Punching out stars on the Sahara Sand panel and then gluing those punched out stars on the Very Vanilla panel adds a positive/negative perspective to the card – all without wasting any paper! Adding the striped embossed image with the Embossing Folder and Big Shot add another textural dimension to the card, while the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set adds some splotches and interest as well!
  • The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is taken from the Holiday Home Stamp Set, while the rhinestone is colored using a Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities marker.

Celebrate Card Ideas Stampin Up Rubber Stamping

 

Pool Party is easily one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! colors. It’s just so calming and chic that I can’t help my eyes when they start to focus in on this color!

This card is simple AND chic – the linen thread adds the “earthy” vibe – which I love as well!

Stampin up card ideas Mingle all the way Thanksgiving card

Thanksgiving! A time to celebrate with family and friends… near or far! It is a time to make memories – (as a side note, my favorite Thanksgiving memory was when the girls were about 8 and 5 … I had to work the night before and didn’t get home until about 5 am. Cooking a turkey for the three of us was pretty much not going to happen. Instead, we set the table with the good china, poured soda pop in wine glasses – which the girls LOVED – and ordered pizza. Who says you can’t eat pizza on your good china on Thanksgiving? Clean up was a breeze and left overs didn’t linger for weeks!)

This card measures 3″ x 3″ – perfect to use as a “place” card at your dinner table, put in leftover bags or to put in an envelope and send to those who are far away!

Check out the below video to see how I made this sweet little card!

I am sure my videos will get better with some practice… the second one I did is already better! But you can always look back on this one and fondly remember when the woman with a degree in Radio/Television had such a hard time making one video… :)

I have been spending some time gaining some new blogging knowledge. The training literally blew my mind. Things that I thought were so confusing became oh-so-clear. Which means, things I have been wanting to do for a while I may actually be able to do!

Bright and Beautiful Stampin Up Christmas Card Ideas Star Card

Don’t get me wrong, card making is something everyone should do everyday. Except we all get busy with kids, husbands, activities, laundry and dinner. (Really, I fed them all yesterday! And did laundry 2 weeks ago! What more do they want from me!) But if there is one season a year everyone should make cards, its the Holiday Season that occurs in December.

I get so excited when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog comes out because of all the new stamp sets that are introduced for holiday card making! (Not to mention the ideas for both card making AND gift giving!)

This card features the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set, which coordinates perfectly with the Stars Framelit Dies (use with the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform for perfectly cut stars, EVERY time!)

I used Baked Brown Sugar card stock for the card base and Cherry Cobbler card stock and ink for the Stars and Sentiment stamp. Using the Magnetic Platform, I was able to perfectly nestle a smaller sized star inside the larger star – which allows the stamped star image on the Baked Brown Sugar card stock stand out!

Finish up the card by tying some linen thread into a bow around the star, backing the sentiment with some Cherry Cobbler card stock, and some Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the star off the card base and this card is almost done!

Now, you could leave the inside blank and write your own greeting, or you can use the below sentiment stamp that comes in the Bright and Beautiful set for the inside of your card:
