More info later in the post.

Today's hop is a total sneak peek of some products that can be found in Stampin' Up!'s New Occasions catalog.

Here is a Wedding Card that I created using the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set. 

For this card, I chose to heat emoboss with Gold Embossing Powder onto vellum paper. Heat embossing is one of my favoirte techniques and when I saw this stamp set, it really called out my name....I have so many ideas that can be done can't wait to share more of them with you. This stamp set has 14 stamps of which 11 are greetings. It's so versatile to use.

This stamp set actually can be purchased as a bundle with it's coordinating framlit set. 

Now on to my Sale-A-Bration share...

During Sale-A-Bration, qualifying orders recieve FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get one item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. One of the awesome FREE products that will be available January 05-March 31 (There will be a release of more products February 15th) is this beautiful Wildflower Fields Desinger Series Paper. 12 Sheets (2 ea of 6 double sided 12" x 12" designs)

In the month of January, one of the things that I love to give my customers are calendars. Here are 5 little Post It Note/Claendars that I have created using the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.  The flower accent is called Blossom Bunch Punch and it is in the New Occasion Catalog.

Here is a look at the inside of the calendar:

To make this calendar:
1.  Cut card stock at 9-1/4" x 3-3/8".
2.  Score at 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 5-1/2", and 6". Crease all score lines.
3.  Cut Designer Series Paper 3-1/4" x 3-3/8"
4.  Cut Designer Series Paper 1-3/4" x 3-3/8"
5.  Punch a hole inbetween the first two score lines. Do this on the left and right sides of your card stock.
6.   On the shortest side from the left edge to the 1-3/4" score line, punch the corners using the Cuurvy Corner Trio Punch (Hoorah!!! That punch carried over from the Holiday Catalog). 
7.  Punch two corners of the  1-3/4" x 3-3/8"  Designer Series Paper. Adhere to card stock. 
8.  Adhere 3-1/4" x 3-3/8" Designer Series Paper to the front bottom of the card stock.
9.  Adhere post it notes and calendar to the card stock.
10. Place a piece of velcro to open/shut your calendar
11.  Thread the ribbon through the two punch holes and tie a knot.
12. Create the flower accent piece with the Blossom Punch Bunch and attach to the flap of the calendar using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add a Candy Dot to accent the flower.

I love's my favorite holiday and being able to give gifts and hopefully see the smiles on peoples faces. Today is my boy's last day of school before winter break. Today's share is a project I worked on as a gift that my boys could take to school and give their teacher for Christmas. A Santa Candy Sleigh and a coordination Christmas Card.

For Santa's Sleigh, I took a Kit Kat Bar and wrapped Gold Trim around the bar. Glued the Kit Kat bar to the candy canes using Tear and Stick Adhesive Tape. I adhered the Hershey Nuggets onto the Kit Kat Bar and stacked them on each other using Glue Dots (I was tempted to use a Hot Glue Gun, but I decided not to in fear that the heat would melt the chocolate). For the ribbon, I grabbed the only red ribbon that I had --- Red Cotton Ribbon and I made the bow using Stampin' Up!'s Bow Builder Punch.

For the card, I used a very simple layout featuring the red stripped Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. I decided to jazz up the background and simply embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. The presents are from the Your Presents Stamp Set. I will have the complete list of supplies on the bottom of my post.

Team Stamp It Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to Team Stamp It's Christmas Holdiay Blog Hop. If you are already on our hop, you have just come from Liz Miller's awesome blog and thank you for stopping by. If you are new to the blog, you can easily navigate to all of our websites by clicking the "Previous" and "Next" buttons and I will also have al list of all of our blog hop participants at the bottom of this post.  In addition--Team Stamp It has a Blog Hop Give away!!!!....Later in this post, I will explain what the Give Away prize will be (you are absolutely gonna love it) and what you have to do to enter.

Now, let's get to today's project share: 

Today's projects includes a cute hair comb using Stampin' Up!'s Reason For The Season photopolymer stamp set and the Festive Flower Builder Punch, a gift box made using the Gift Box Punch Board and the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper and a cute little gift tag using the Ornate Tag Topper (a list of all the supplies used will be listed on the bottom of this post). I thought that this would make a cute Christmas gift for a special little girl.

To make the hair piece, create the petals using the Festive Flower Builder Punch and the "petal veins" from the stamp set. You will need (8) large petals in Real Red, (3) large petals in Garden Green, (4) small petals in Real Red, (2) thin petals in Real Red, (2) x's in Crushed Curry, and (2) 1" Circles in Real Red

Stamp the "vein image" and punch with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.

Bend petal in half to create a"textured" look.

Using the circle punches as a base, create two flower clusters by layering the petals.

Adhere the clusters together and add adhere the Crushed Curry "X"'s to the middle of your flower. Add a rhinstore for some bling.Once your flower is done, using a glue gun adhere the flower  onto a comb to create the hair piece

To create the gift box, cut the designer series paper 10" x 10" and follow the instructions on the front of the punch board to creade the XL Box.

To make the gift tag, cut a piece of Very Vanilla at 2" x 4". Punch one end using the Ornate Punch. Stamp the greeting on the bottom of the tag using Garden Green Classic Ink. Stamp the outline image of the flower in Momento Black ink. Then stamp the inside of the of the leaves with Garden Green. For the flower, use Real Red and stamp off before you stamp the inside of the flower.

I really hope you enjoyed my projects. They were so fun to make.

 As promised....are you ready for Team Stamp It's give away???

This month we have three fabulous guest bloggers!!! Please help me welcome them to this month's blog hop and please make sure you stop by and check out there absolutely fantastic projects.

This months guest bloggers are:

This month's theme is all about Thanksgiving. As I was creating this post I began to think to myself that everyday is Thanksgiving...Gratitude from the heart is daily and when I  look around I have so much to be thankful for. Today, I am thankful for Stampin Friends and all of you readers out there who give me a reason to stamp! A reason to craft and create using my passion for paper...Thank you!!

With that in mind, here are my projects (I'll have a list of all the supplies used at the bottom of my post):

My first project is a really simple "Grateful For You" card using the Stampin' Up!'s Acorny Thank You Stamp Set and accenting this card with one of my favorite fall color - Tangelo Twist. Guess what I love about this Photopolymer Stamp Set???.....It has a coordinating Punch, the Acorn Builder Punch--Perfect!!! For the background I used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and I highlighted the background using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. 

Now, for my project, I created a matching table favor using the Fry Box Big Z. I made a little tag with the acorn from the stamp set and decorated the Fry Box with some punches and used Stampin' Up!'s Into The Woods Designer Series Paper.

Before you go...Do you love crafty supplies? If the answer is yes...comment on all 12 post in this hop and email Elizabeth everyone's favorite color to by midnight on Sunday. What do you get when you do so? In addition to enjoying all of this group's creations, you will be entered to win a fun crafty present from everyone of the Bloggers!!!
