K is for Kit…Be Merry

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series!  Today I am sharing a fun kit from the Holiday catalog… the Be Merry Kit. This all-inclusive kit has everything necessary to make 12 rosette ornaments (6 each of 2 designs). These are so festive and fun to make!

Look at everything that comes in the kit!

You can hang them on your tree or wreath or use as gift tags or on packages.

I love the idea of putting them on gift bags and packages and then the recipient can hang on their tree! (I used a piece of washi tape to adhere the string inside the bag.  It’s easy to remove to hang the ornament.)

I added the circle tags to the back.  The Cheers to Years Stamp Set is great for making a tag for a bottle of wine or champagne and there are so many stamp sets that have to and from stamps (Labels to Love, Snowflake Sentiments, Tags & Trimmings…).

Check out this video to see how quick & easy these are to put together!

I had so much fun making these and love that I have a head start on tags/gifts! These would be great to give as a little gift to coworkers! Here’s a few close ups!

3D Swaps from World Card Making Day

I am late posting today because I am just getting back from Atlanta and the most amazing weekend!  My mind is on inspiration overload!  I wish I could take a week off and just create!  My sister asked me what was my favorite thing from the Stampin’ Up! weekend events and I didn’t even have to think about my answer…it was the people!  I was surrounded by so many wonderful and talented people and we had a blast! Brian King and Pam Morris hosted World Card Making Day on Friday and I met so many wonderful and creative people and made many new friends! One of the first things we did on Friday was a 3D Swap.  Everyone made a little gift and we walked around and mingled until we were told to stop and swap with the person closest to you.  Here’s my 3D swap.


I used a 12 x 12 piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP to make this treat holder. You can click HERE to see my previous post with the directions.  I figured the recipient could sit this on their table and have something sweet to enjoy all weekend.

I received this cute handmade box filled with chocolates.  YUM!

Here’s a few pictures from World Card Making Day and some of the other 3D swaps.

I was so excited to meet the infamous WCMD hosts, Pam Morris and Brian King !
My wonderful friend and upline, Susan Itell.
Look at this awesome candy train made by Joanna!
Karen made an adorable box and gift tags!
What a cool idea for a countdown to Christmas!
Great way to dress up a tissue box!  Change the DSP for different holidays.
Gorgeous ornament!
Quick & easy colorful ornament using strips of DSP.
I love this curvy keepsake ornament!
Beautiful homemade decor!




Here are some more great ideas showing how you can frame your creations for Holiday decor and/or gifts.



Now you can see why I am on inspiration overload! And this was just one of the events! Friday night I went to dinner with some of the members of our team.  These are “my people”!

Joanna Latham, me, Rosanne Mulhern, Susan Itell, Bridget Trefethen, Karen Hallam

I will be sharing more inspiration and photos from all the events later this week so be sure to check back.
