Saying Goodbye to 2012

Today is the last day of 2012.  It was a great year, although nothing is going to top 2013!  My middle son is getting married and Rob has lots of exciting things going on in his life this year.  It should be a lot of fun but exhausting.

So here is to a great 2013!

Happy New Year

Can You Count The New Product In This Card?

I love Christmas but I am so tired of seeing Christmas projects.  This next card has a lot of new product from the Spring Catalog in it.  I used the Oval Framelits, the Primrose Petals Core-dinations Paper, The new Honeycomb Embossing Folder and new Designer Series Paper called Print Poetry.  I think the 2013/2014 In Colors are some of my favorites.  I am going to miss these when they retire.  Good thing we still have another year and a half before they go.

Don’t forget you only have until January 2, 2013 to buy individual stamps.  This Happy Birthday stamp comes from the set called You’re Amazing from the Annual Catalog

New Year Drinks Anyone?

It is almost the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013.  I know everyone is thinking about what they are going to do on New Year’s Eve.  The Happy Hour Stamp Set is perfect for New Year’s Eve.  What better way to spend it then having a glass of wine, champagne or your favorite umbrella drink?  Or maybe you are making plans to get away from the cold and snow and head to more tropical weather.  In either case, Happy Hour works!

Please drink responsibly! :)

Something New – Soda Pop Tops

Those of you that know me pretty well, know I am a clean and simple stamper.  I am not into the vintage look and whenever I try, I am a complete failure at it.  All I can do it CASE (Copy and Share Everything).

In the new Occasions Catalog that comes out in January, there are Soda Pop Tops.  What on earth would you do with Soda Pop Tops?  Well, to be honest, I got them in a special package from Stampin Up (which by the way, is a perk of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator.   Ask me if you are interested!).  So I sat at my stampin desk and stared that this package of Soda Pop Tops for a very, very long time.  I just could not wrap  my brain around them.

I figured the best thing to do with them is to make some kind of masculine card, which is always a challenge in itself.  I got out my new Honeycomb Embossing Folder and used it on some Cherry Cobbler Core’dinations Paper.  The rest sort of fell into place.  I used a new stamp set also from the Occasions Mini called Collage Curios, Tiny Tags Stamp Set, the Jewelry Tag Punch and some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and the result is this card below.
