Christmas Tree with Hershey Kisses

It's Christmas TIME!!!!
I just love the holidays!
We actually decorated just before Thanksgiving because we went out of town. That way when we got back, everything was good to go. 


That's my daughter Sara and my doggy Nilla decorating the Christmas tree ;)

Oh how I also love to make treats during the holiday. Anything a little extra that I can add candy to is fun.


Here is a little tutorial on how to make these fun little Hershey Kiss Christmas Trees :) 


I have some other Christmas Stocking Stuffers coming up in an online class that you can purchase from me :) You get the stamp set and some ink and other items along with FREE from me paper supplies and candies to make the items. It doesn't get any better than that. 

Visit my events page to sign up for this class. 

The Stocking Stuffer class needs to be signed up for by Dec 10 to  make sure that you are able to get your supplies. Don't wait - this will be a fun one :)

I hope that you have a wonderful day and hopefully you have your Christmas list started ;)

Happy Crafting,

Tiny Peek of what is to come & the NEW STAMPARATUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello All :) 

I have just come back from OnStage in Salt Lake City. 
OnStage is the convention for Stampin' Up! demonstrators to see upcoming catalogs, get encouragement and meet and hang out with other demonstrators. 
We had an absolute blast!!!
Join my team so that you can join me and others at the next OnStage in April 2018. There will be different areas around the U.S. that you can attend.

So as of today I can share a couple pictures of some of the new items in the Occasions and 
Sale-a-bration catalogs that will be available January 3, 2018. 


I am not kidding when I tell you that this is probably the best Occasions Catalog that I've seen. And the items for Sale-a-bration.....WOW!!!
I will be showing the goodies I pre-ordered in a live unboxing later this week when my items arrive.

One thing in particular that is AMAZING and long waited for is the new 
STAMPARATUS!!!!!!



This new tool will change how you stamp!
Stampin' Up! is going to allow us to all pre-order this item as of November 16, 2017 at 2pm MT.
At that time you can pre-order the tool. 

Approx shipping date is February 1, 2018. 
You will have to have a Credit card on file to pre-order, but you will not be charged until it is ready to be shipped. You will also get confirmation when it is ready to ship and if you change your mind, you can cancel it. 
The Stamparatus Retail price is $49.00. 
At time of confirmation add another small item and you will qualify for a Sale-a-bration item also!

Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Watch the YouTube video below to see how awesome this new tool is :) 
The first reservation window is Nov 16-30 for approx shipping Feb 1. 

If you reserve this item from me at 
during the first reservation window of Nov 16-30 and complete your purchase when it ships you will get to choose any (1) item $10 or less in the Occasions Catalog. 

People have waited quite awhile for a tool such as this from Stampin' Up! The Stamparatus will not disappoint. It is magical for sure. 

Please let me know if you have any questions at all - nicern1@gmail.com
