Happy Sunday! I have a showcase of projects for you today! I haven’t posted much lately but, now that the holidays are behind us, I am looking forward to blogging more often! I am super excited about the offerings in the new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration! I just found out that many of you have not received your catalogs yet! Oh my! I called Stampin’ Up! as I had them sent directly to you and it seems there has been a delay in delivery due to the holidays. They ensured me that they were sent out the week of Dec. 10th but bulk mail takes a bit longer to arrive. If you have shopped with me in the last 6 months, I sent you a catalog. Please email me and let me know if you received your catalogs or not. If your catalog has not arrived by Monday, a new one will be shipped to you! I sincerely apologize for the delay and please know that you can view the catalogs online while you wait for yours to arrive. Click on the catalog images on the right or in the drop down menu across the top. (If you are viewing this in your email, you may need to click on the blog title first to view online.) I will also include the links below.
The holidays just flew by and amid all the Christmas festivities, celebrations, and annual cookie exchange, I was busy creating! I made table favors, treat holders, cards, tags, gifts, and projects for family and friends. Most went out the door before I even had time to photograph them or blog. Here’s a few I did mange to snap a shot before I gifted.
I love the Copper Tins! I embellished with my favorite DSP and filled 16 of them with my homemade cinnamon candy! If I showed up on Christmas Eve without this candy I do believe my family would send me packing! LOL After 25 years it has become a Christmas tradition! I used the Joyous Noel DSP but you could easily use other patterns. These would be great to fill for Valentine’s Day! I layered 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 pieces of DSP on 3 x 3 Copper Foil. I was inspired by fellow Pal, Brian King Here’s a few more designs.
These tins can also be used to hold 3 x 3 note cards. Check them out in the annual catalog and leave a comment below if you have another idea what you could gift in them.
My sisters are huge Scrabble players so I made each of them family frames with old tiles. I like how it showcases our beautiful DSP. You can easily change out the paper each season. I chose DSP to match their home decor. I bet the new All My Love Designer Series Paper would look great as a background for Valentine’s Day!
I made several gift card holders for my nieces & nephews. This pop up gift card holder is really quick & easy to make. Just change the DSP for different occasions!
Every year I make calendar cards and change them up a little. The daisy punch and leaf punch made these quick & easy this year which was good because I made almost 50!

Every year I make 60-70 Christmas cards to send to family and friends. When we celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday at Universal Studios this past year, I took the opportunity to snap a family photo. I thought this sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set was perfect to go with our photo!
I hope you enjoyed my “homemade holiday” showcase. If you have any questions about any of the projects feel free to email me or leave a comment below. I’m looking forward to a new year of creating fun cards and projects!
