M is for Merry Music and more!

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series. I love Christmas music!  I could listen to Christmas carols year round! Unfortunately I can’t sing. (Many a friend will agree!  LOL)  At least my Pre K students don’t seem to mind.  I may not be able to sing the right notes; however, I create some “notes”. Today’s cards feature the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper. I made a set of note cards for my daughter’s former violin teacher. My daughter visits her when she is home from college and brings her our homemade fudge for Christmas every year. I know she will appreciate these cards (maybe not as much as her favorite fudge but at least these are calorie free).

This is a clean & simple layout and a great way to showcase your favorite DSP. (Don’t forget select DSP is on sale through the end of October…Buy 3, Get 1 FREE! Only a few days left to stock up & save!)

The DSP measures 3×3 and I layered each with a 3 1/4 square of Basic Black cardstock. I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut my boughs from Garden Green, Old Olive, and Real Red cardstock. I adhered these and the Red Ribbon bow with Glue Dots. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Basic Black and cut it (and the Real Red scallop piece) with the Layering Ovals Framelits. I adhered the sentiment layer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy! What a great gift idea for teachers, hostesses, musicians, etc. You get 4 each of 6 double-sided designs in the pack so there’s plenty of paper to make matching envelopes too!

R is for Real Red DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am showcasing Real Red from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Red is one of my absolute favorite colors! I have touches of red in every room in my house (except my daughters “Paris” themed bedroom) and I won’t tell you how many different red tops I own!  I love how Stampin’ Up! paired Real Red with crumb cake , early espresso, and whisper white in these designs.

Today’s card was sent to me from my new friend and fellow demonstrator, Ramsey. We got together last month for lunch and an afternoon of paper crafting and it was like we had known each other forever!  We had so much fun!  She sent me this adorable card and I have been waiting to showcase it.  (I am trying to convince Ramsey she should start a blog because if I can do it ANYONE can!  LOL)  She makes beautiful cards and projects and I felt honored to be on the receiving end of this cutie!

These gingerbread men are so stinkin’ cute! And I love the way she punched the DSP for their bowties.  Ramsey is such an enabler…I had to add this Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to my last order ( I ordered it as a Bundle and saved 10%!).  I know my Pre-K students will love getting little treat bags with these guys as tags! I make gingerbread cookies every year for the kids to decorate and I think I will fill little bags with assorted candies for them to use on their cookies. How cute will that be with these guys on the bag?!
