Alter It Thursday: Keurig Snowman Hat Ornament

I love it when you can take an ordinary household item and alter it into a cute craft item.  I used an empty Keurig cup to make this adorable Snowman Hat Ornament.  Basically I added ribbon and dressing and glued the empty Keurig cup onto a 3" black circle.  Stampers don't throw anything away.

EVERYONE (U.S.) Can Reserve A STAMPARATUS TODAY!



RESERVE YOUR STAMPARATUS TODAY AT 2 P.M MOUNTAIN!  

Stamparatus, the best stamp positioning tool on the market (product benefits and details below), is available to reserve today at 2 p.m.!  With the launch of this tool, Stampin’ Up! is using a reservation system. This system will allow Stampin’ Up! to get this high demand product into demonstrator and customer hands as soon as possible.

  • UPDATE!  Whether the total number of reservations today is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open from Dec. 5 – Dec. 30, 2017!  This will be the ONLY remaining window to reserve a Stamparatus.
  • Limit:  1 tool per customer.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • After notification that your Stamparatus is available (March 19 or later), you’ll need to login and close your order.  Be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.  You can add other products to the order at that time.
  • Credit cards will not be charged (Stamparatus cost is $49 plus shipping and sales tax) until the Stamparatus ships from the Stampin’ Up! facility. 
  • UPDATE!  Beginning March 19, Stampin’ Up! will ship the Stamparatus in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in the warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • The Stamparatus will be a regular product in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Annual Catalog, starting June 1.



Retired But Love it... Retired Christmas Designer Series Paper

More cards I made with my 4x4 Designer Series Paper scraps.  These scraps were retired Christmas paper squares from a recent meeting where we did a "DSP paper share" project. I couldn't bare to throw them away... so I made these quick Christmas cards for my Mom to use.

Stampin With Scraps: 4x4 Retired Designer Paper Series Share

I was cleaning out some DSP paper in my craftroom and came across some 4x4 Designer Series Paper scraps.  These scraps were retired paper squares from a recent meeting where we did a "DSP paper share" project. 



I couldn't throw away the paper scraps so I decided to make some quick and simple greeting cards using the paper squares and donated them for a school fundraiser.

Stampin' Up! Feeling of Christmas Wreath with Stampin Blends

I took a lot of pleasure coloring in the Feeling of Christmas wreath with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blends Combo packs but it was so worth it.. beautiful card.




Some times you find inspiration from a project in weird areas.  I found this wreath looked just as great on the reverse side of the image...sort of abstract art.
