Snow Day


Malachi finally gets to finish his snowman…on the second snowday.
















Tash and I played with our stamps…I designed this page for my class this month.  IMG_0956  Oh, check out the little cross stitches on the tiny blue piece…that’s a new embossing folder!













Here’s the buIMG_0961tterfly that Tash is working on….The butterfly is embossed and then she sponged (and q-tipped) champagne shimmer paint on it.






IMG_0963Oh, and this is the card that I made over 325 of this year.  I am still needing to finish a few for some friends….

Merry Christmas


The kids on Christmas morning!  Wow, suddenly our tree looks really small.

Then off to Grandma’s house for a day or stuffing ourselves, games, music and reminiscing. 








We celebrated with the ‘little guy’ on Sunday morning when Tyler had him.  He loved the wrapping paper more than his gifts---went right to his mouth!  Then we visited with Great-grandma and grandpa Clapper and family.

Holiday Inspiration


Here are a few tags that we are doing this month at StamptheloveShoppe…the tree one is just for this Saturday at our Stamping Day!

Here’s another one we are doing on Saturday:


  Love this little canning jar.  Saw a Christmas card using the idea of the jar with ornaments so I decided to try it in a tag.  The ornaments are punched with the Merry minis punch pack #126882

I used the silver glimmer paper (which we sponged Soft Suede with a sponge dauber to antique a bit) and the Candlelight Christmas Designer Paper #126901

The Scallop Circle is a die…which I just realized we don’t carry anymore…oops, sorry!  I’ll be changing it to the Delicate Doily Sizzlits L.



Unfortunately, this isn’t a good angle, but Tash colored Champagne Shimmer Paint #116806 onto the skates with a blender pen #102845

Gives it a gorgeous shimmery but antique look.









I think this is my favorite…Tash made it.

The tree from Christmas Lodge #123769 was stamped with our new Always Artichoke Pad…I’ve never seen such a real-looking tree stamped.  Then she spritzed it with our new spritzers #126185. She added alcohol then a few drops Crumb Cake and some Soft Suede ink refills.  To get the large dot effect (I had to ask her how she did this cause I kept getting real fine spritz).  So, you depress the top about half, then you do your spritzing action from 1/2 way, this gives you large splatters.  Try it….oh, she also spritzed it with a separate mixture of alcohol and Shimmer Paint.

Oh, the little dabs of Cherry cobbler Dazzling Details #125585 really makes this tag pop! 





I learned this cool fold from my friend Sena.  It’s just a half circle.  I’ll try to get a video on here for you!

This tag looks great with our sweater trim ribbon…127838
