Frosty the Snowman!

I'm super duper excited to share a brand new snowman with you!
You may remember a few years ago my daughter sold her snowman tutorial to purchase coats, hats, & food for a local homeless center...well this year our family is raising money to benefit the Veterans Affairs organization in Sacramento. We became acquainted with them a few weeks ago when my company organized a donation of canned goods & non perishable food items in honor of Veterans Day.
It's always a joy to help the community especially those that have served in the Military!

Christmas Pines Stamp a Stack!

Hello Friends!
Long time no see but today I have a couple of Christmassy projects to share with you! 
But first lets talk about all the amazing Stampin up sales going on...
Click Here to see my November Newsletter!
 Ok on with the show...
Stamp a Stacks are my favorite!
I enjoy watching everyone busy creating lots of cards for their friends & family!
This year my hubby had to work over time since he is my class "Big Shotter" & I fell in love with the Christmas Pines dies. He was such a trooper & cut 40+ of each tiny piece to create these projects...

I hosted 2 classes & the second class was smaller so they got to choose to do the gift bag or a gift card envelope.
Both were embellished the same.

Everyone's creations came out beautifully & I can't wait to plan our
Birthday Card Stamp a Stack for January! I'll be back soon to share more of the holiday cards we created.
Hugs & Holiday Blessings!

Soda Pop Card!

Hey Y'all!
I recently went back to work after being home with my girls for 10+ years so my crafty time has been pretty scarce but I am excited to share a little fun idea with you today!
If you follow me on Instagram you already got a sneak peek but here is the card I created along with a quick video showing you how to make your own pop can!
FYI- I didn't realize I had used a couple of retired products but that red foil paper is on the clearance rack right now & hopefully you have the white staz on ink in your stash!
