Christmas Mini Scrapbook

I made this scrapbook using the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die. The 4 1/2 square scrapbook is adorable. Don't you think? I used the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper. The front and back covers were cut from the white cardboard that comes in SU's DSP packs and then covered with DSP. The pages are Real Red and Soft Suede cardstock.

I'm going to make another scrapbook this weekend using Merry Moments DSP for my Christmas Stamp Camp. They are so fun and easy to make I may just make a bunch for Christmas gifts!!

I'd love to hear from you. Have a great Friday.

Christmas Stamp Camp

I wanted to share a few "sneak peeks" of the projects you can make at my Annual Christmas Stamp Camp on Saturday, October 24th at 9:00-??. Fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Sue Mayfield, and I host this event each year. This year it is being held at my brand new church, Godfrey First United Methodist Church. I'm so excited to show off our new building!

Participants will make 4 gift items and 4 special Christmas cards. Below is a card I made using the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper and the new Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint both from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I hope you can see the pretty shimmer to the card in the close up. I CASEd this card here.

Below are two projects that Sue designed. The first is a "long" card made out of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. She used the new Ornament Punch also from the Mini Catalog. The other item is an adorable gift card holder using the Top Note Die and, of course, Dasher!!

Another card creation by Sue. She used the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die and the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper. The stamps are from the Christmas Punch Hostess set.

That's all for now. I hope you enjoyed taking a "sneak peek" at our fantastic projects. Check back tomorrow for a peek at a mini scrapbook that is part of the gift items.

Christmas Jingle SAS (last but not least!)

Here are the last of my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards. The card below used one of the last self-adhesive embellishments in the 1/2 scrappin' kit and it was the 21st card. I wanted to make 30 cards per 1/2 scrappin' kit so I had to become creative and use coordinating stamps.

For the cards below I still had two 6x12 pieces of the DSP left so I chose cards I had already made using the self-adhesive embellishments from the kit and used stamps instead. The card below I had enough DSP to make two identical cards. I think all of the cards below turned out perfect. They coordinate so well with the scrappin' kit.

I used the "Santa (postage) stamp" from the Hostess set Christmas Punch.

For the cards below, I used Tree Trimmings and was inspired by the card here on SplitcoastStampers.

Lastly, I needed three more cards to complete my 30. I think "Dasher" is so cute. My inspiration for Dasher came from the cards here.

So if your counting -- there should be 30 cards. My first class for these cards are on October 18. I can't believe I'm all ready!!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing all my Christmas Jingle cards. I really think this is one of the best Simple Scrappin' Kits and the cards went together so well. Next, I'll post some of the projects for my upcoming Holiday Stamp Camp. Check back ...

Christmas Jingle - Part 4

Still more cards from my Christmas Jingle Stamp-a-Stack. I stamped "Dasher" on my first card below. I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on the stamp. I inked up the stamp with Chocolate Chip classic ink then lightly sponged on the shimmer paint before stamping onto the cardstock. You can see the "shimmer" more on the close up. It's really pretty in person!

I used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate for the background of this card.

I have one more set of cards to post. Check back on Monday. I'm off to the pumpkin patch this afternoon with my grandchildren!!!

Here are some more of my Christmas Jingle Stamp-a-Stack cards. I've completed them all and I made 30 cards out of one-half of the Christmas Jingle Simple Scrappin' kit. I linked to my inspiration for these cards in my September 29th post. Make sure you check out Jeanne and Erin's blogs too. Now for a look at my cards -- I think they turned out great!!

Check back later for more cards!! Linda
