Holiday Printers Tray

I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer again with Craft Project Central this month.  I decided to make a holiday themed Printers Tray this time.  So, the project that is posted at Craft Project Central today is DESIGNED BY ME!!

I used the Designer Series Paper, All Is Calm and Silver Glitter Paper.  I just love the blues and greens in thatDSP.  I used a variety of current Stampin' Up stamps and accessories to create the project.  If you would like instructions, subscribe to Craft Project Central this month.  There are a lot of other great projects available for download with your subscription.

Monday Mailer Christmas Collage

I've had the Christmas Collage stamp (from Holiday Mini) for a couple of months and haven't been totally thrilled with anything I've made with it .... until I made this card!  I love it and hope you do too!

 It wasn't the quickest card to make but that's probably what makes it so special.  I stamped two pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock with the whole stamp in Early Espresso.  One was used as my card base  and the other was cut up - I tore the top corner and cut a rectangle of the song (Silent Night) to use.  I sponged all the edges with Espresso.  The base piece was adhered to the Always Artichoke card.  Then I layered the corner piece with a strip of torn Cherry Cobbler in the right corner.  I used my blender pen and squeezed a little ink (Cherry Cobbler & Artichoke) in the lid of my ink pad and colored the holly leaves, berries and poinsetta.  I used So Saffron marker for the bell.   I punched two holes in the small rectangle Silent Night piece and threaded the Cherry Cobbler seam binding (love it!!) through it and adhered it to the card at an angle.  I stamped Merry Christmas from the Bells and Boughs stamp set and adhered it to the card (with dimensional tape).

Here is a close up view of part of the card.

So, what do you think????

Flag Ladies

Did you notice on my sidebar the time in Iraq?  Thought that was neat.

I stayed kinda busy today so I didn't have time to get depressed!  Ashley called me at 3:30 am during her layover in Bangor, Maine.  We didn't talk for long but it was good to hear her one last time.  I was really surprised when she told me the coffee shop & gift shop was open at the airport.  Seems they open them for the troops when they fly in or out.  It's amazing all the support out there that we just don't know about.  There is also a group called the Freeport Flag Ladies who, like the Hug Lady, are there for support for our troops.  These three wonderful ladies greet our soldiers giving them a small gift and taking their picture which they post on their website.  I am patiently waiting for this morning's pictures to be posted!  You can read about them HERE.

Doesn't this just give you faith in the American people?  It does for me!

I am having a hard time with Ashley's address.  For those of you who I e-mailed her mailing address (TWICE), I think it is still wrong.  She gave it to me yesterday when I was on my cell phone (and she on hers).  Don't know about you, but clarity is not always the best with cells.  I repeated the address to her but think it is still wrong.  Her friend, Dawn, who has just returned from Iraq from her second tour told me the address didn't look right to her.  So, I am trying to get in touch with the FRG (Family Readiness Group) to get the correct address.  I already have a letter and a package that I want to send to her so it will be waiting for her in Mosul when she arrives.

Here is a Christmas card that I made tonight.  I still need to work with this stamp set.  This was my first time playing with it.

I stamped the image (Christmas Collage from Holiday Mini) on red cardstock with Silver Craft Ink and embossed it in silver.  Then, I stamped "merry" in the little rectangle.  The Joy is actually stamped in black & cut out - very carefully!  I used my Nesties to get the black circle around "25".  What do you think?
