#245 One Sheet Wonder

One Sheet Wonder!
What a fabulous way to make 9 cards with 1 piece of Designer Series paper. 

What is a one sheet wonder you ask?
Well let me tell you!
It is when you take a 12" x 12" sheet of designer series paper and cut it into several different sized pieces so that you can then make multiple cards from the 1 piece of paper. 
Stampin' Up's paper is awesome because it is almost always double sided and so perfect coordinating that you can really get the most for your money!

You can watch me do this live on my Facebook Page HERE
Below are the cutting instructions and measurements for the 12"x 12" sheet of paper along with pictures of the cards that I put togther. 



The above picture shows which pieces I used for which cards, but different paper than in the cards shown below. 


Shown above: Cards 1,2,3


Shown above: Cards 4,5,6


Shown above: Cards 7,8,9

I hope these details show you how easy it is to use all the pieces to make 9 full cards. 

Of course...last but not least by any means....the final winner of the 12 days of December is....
Babe O'Mara! 
You have won the "Hello Cupcake" Sale-a-bration set!

#243 Favorite Memory of Christmas 2018 #11 of 12 days of December

Favorite Memory of Christmas

How can I pick just one???
It's too much pressure...so I'm gonna pick a few. :) 

First of all...our Christmas started on December 21st when my mom was in town for Christmas. 

Getting pictures with these funny girls is sometimes tricky cuz they are always being funny. If you saw my camera roll you would see that there are about 10 pictures alone for this one simple selfie. Oh how I love them and they make me laugh, I hope it never changes.

Another good one, but I don't have a picture to represent.lol...in the spirit of making sure my mom had all of her gifts and stuff get home with her, I sent her with Ned's and my gifts as well. So my beautifully engraved Corksicle cup that my mom gave me that I was going to use Christmas morning was up in Long Beach.lol. 
I got to meet my Mom and Pops for lunch yesterday and exchange goodies. 

But my favorite memory is just spending time with these guys :) They make it all worth while

I hope that your holidays were amazing :) 

Tell me your favorite Christmas memory below on this blog or over on the facebook post to have your chance to win a pack of the brand new "All my Love" ribbon that is from the Occasions catalog :)

The winner of the Tropical Escape paper was Kathy Beemer! Congrats to you!!!

Happy Crafting and Happy New Years EVE EVE.

#242 Stockings #10 of 12 days of December

STOCKINGS!!!!
Oh how I love them. I can never get everything to fit, so it spills over on to the floor or couch or whatever they are sitting. 

The stockings that "Santa" fills with care here often include candy of course, gift cards, lip balm, lotion, fun extra gifts that have been found through out the year, some socks....could be a million different little things. 
So much fun.

Stockings are put together very very early Christmas morning. Once we are all awake, we get something delicious to drink some hot chocolate or apple cider or juice and all sit together and start exploring our over flowing stockings. 
It's then time to grab a few treats for breakfast...this year it will be Babe's famous homemade from scratch cinnamon rolls and some fruit :) We will then open some presents and then have some breakfast later on that will include my mom's famous cheesy hashbrown potatoes. Wouldn't be Christmas without them.



Tell me about your stockings for your chance to win the Tropical Escape 6"x6" Designer series paper. 
This beautiful paper can be used year round for some stunning cards, scrapbooking or other paper crafts. 

The winner for Day #9 was....Kari Noel

Congratulations...you won the Treat Boxes and Cellophane bags - perfect for all sorts of goodies.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
Happy Crafting
