Mother's Day

Just Because Mothers Day www.stampingwithdi.com

I wanted to show you my finished card that I hinted at yesterday, I love how it turned out. Do you like it?

This uses a new Hostess set from the upcoming Occasions catalog called Just Because as well as the beautiful DSP Share What You Love, that is in the current catalog. Of course I had to color, cause you know me, I love to color...even when I am making 40 cards! I stamped the image with Memento Black and then colored with the Stampin' Blends. I also used the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits that you can get starting January 3. I love the lop-sided layers behind the focal image, but sometimes it makes it look crooked...ha!

Oh and don't forget my double reward points are ending soon as well as my free Stampin' Blends Combo pack for December's INKcentive.

P.S. I always smile a little when I use the font Comic Sans, a lot of people don't like it...I have always loved it. It is one of those I remember I was so excited when we finally got a computer and I could use different styles of fonts! I remember getting a letter all typed and then taking 15 minutes to figure out what font I wanted to use...ha!

2019 Paper Pumpkin Calendar

Paper Pumpkin December 2018 www.stampingwithdi.com

I got my December Paper Pumpkin yesterday and I was not a big fan of what it was intended for. Hey I will admit it, I don't always like the monthly kits, but you can always do your own thing with them and make them yours.  That is what is fun, there are no mistakes in stamping, only design changes.

So this is what I did with mine.  I had a picture frame from IKEA and these rings in my studio (it's amazing what I find stashed here and there) and I just made it a flip calendar. I used the little wood grain look chipboard piece that came with it so that it keeps the months from going into the hole of the frame. These originally had some plastic in them but I chucked those long ago.

Paper Pumpkin December 2018 side

Here you can see that little chipboard piece better.  Now keep in mind it is an 18 month calendar, so I did need to use my calendar on my phone to get my months in the right order.  I just used the beautiful ribbon that came with the kit and tied it on the bottom of the frame. I wanted to add more ribbon to the rings, but that would make them not work well to flip the calendar each month...so less is more right? 

What do you think?  Don't miss out on January's kit. Who knows what it will be, but I think it has something to do with Kangaroos and Sloths..maybe even a Lizard....hmmmm.....

Can you believe that it is the last weekend before Christmas? Yikes! I hope you have all your shopping done.  I sure don't want to be out shopping this weekend.  I got cards to make...yep looks like I am sending New Years cards this year.  It's like the cobbler's kids had no shoes right? I should have been doing my Christmas cards each month when you were getting the Christmas card class in the mail...then I would have them in the mail already. Next year right?
