Autumn Home Decor



Iwas at the Dollar General and came across these milk cans and I knew I just had to have them. I brought them home and took off the sticker that was on them and redecorated it with the Stampin' Up! Country Lane Suite. I love how this turned out.

Festive Christmas


I like to enter challenges they help fuel my passion for creating my cards. Over on facebook I entered Kim's Paper Kutz card challenge. She is a wonderful and inspiring person. You should hop on over to her page and check her out.
Here is the card I entered in her challenge. I just love the Festive Farmhouse DSP and that Tin Tile folder is the bomb! I believe it will be a best seller for Stampin' Up!

My top 5 2018 Holiday Catalog Stamp Sets



My top 5 Stamps from the Holiday Catalog

1.Farmhouse Christmas Photopolymer Bundle
149941s I love old Farmhouses, they have a history to tell. I often wonder what stories they hold that no one knows of. I did not live on a farm but we did have chickens and a cow when I was growing up. I love the smell of fresh country air. What do you like about old country farmhouses? When I saw the Festive Farmhouse Suite, I just knew I had it have it all! The DSP is to die for along with the red distressed tin, galvanized buttons, striped burlap ribbon and the corrugated embossing folder. This suite is a must have!!
2.Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set
147678s Are you a fan of rustic country life? if so, then the Country Lane Suite is ideal for you. The DSP has lots of country flair and the stamp set is just adorable. There is galvanized metallic paper, clips, braided linen thread and some chicken wire elements to go along with this suite and do not forget about the Tin Tile embossing folder, that is a definite must have item, I believe it will be our number 1 seller.
3.Signs Of Santa Photopolymer Bundle
149967s If you have children, grandchildren or just love being a child yourself, then this stamp set is for you! This stamp is the cutest!! You have elves, Santa and Mrs. Claus to make any child's day with this set. Do not forget to get the matching DSP also. And for even more fun just get the Santa's bags and enamel shapes. There is so much fun to make with the Santa's Workshop Suite!
4.Dashing Deer Clear-Mount Bundle
149935s I just love the elegant look of this set. This set would make great table decorations for the Holidays and I love how it goes well with the Joyous Noel DSP and the Buffalo Check stamp.
5.Winter Woods Clear-Mount Bundle
149992s This stamp set works well with the Rooted In Nature and Lovely as a Tree. It complements both sets nicely. You can even use it with the Woodland embossing folder. Try using some shimmer paint and or embossing paste on the trees for a beautiful snow effect.
