It's PERFECT for your holiday crafting!

Hope you'll play along with our awesome color challenge!

Here are the SugarPea Designs goodies that I used on my faith-filled Christmas card using the new Creative Color Challenge #7!

It is no surprise that I LOVE all things SugarPea Designs!  The new SugarCuts Funky Wreaths - All Seasons is a MUST HAVE for your stash!  This wreath looks fabulous stamped and cut or not stamped and cut!  Here I used some patterned paper and left in un-stamped!  LOVE the texture of this wreath...will be using it on A LOT of projects...and not just for Christmas!  What makes it so amazing is it can be a winter, spring, summer or fall wreath!  
I paired up my new favorite wreath with a previously released Christmas set from last year, Lost Without You.  The precious wiseman brings such a delightful feel to my holiday card.

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Verve Stamps - Hold On

Hey there, stamping friends!
I whipped up this inspirational card for a dear friend of mine who is going through a difficult time.  
What I love about crafting the most is creating special cards for friends and loved ones.  

For the upcoming holiday, take time this week to appreciate your friends and loved ones.  It really is what this thing called LIFE is all about!  Loving and lifting each other up!

For my card, I used some Verve goodness, of course!  I stamped a couple of the sentiments from the Just Breathe stamp set and layered up some Verve die cuts...Flourished Tag Die Set and Award Banner Trim Die.

Check out the current Verve SALE!

Reverse Confetti - Crazy for Christmas - Memory Keeping

Hello, 'Fetti Fans!
It's the final day of Reverse Confetti's CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS showcase!  
So much fun!

I chose to create a mini Christmas album using some of the new goodies from Reverse Confetti's October and November releases!

Here's a closeup shot of the cover!  Keep scrolling to see the album fanned out!  Using these awesome Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, this album came together in a snap!  

 Here are the goodies that I included in my project today!

Make sure you stop at each designer's blog today for further inspiration!

The new Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts is my new FAVORITE thing from Reverse Confetti!  This tag is a substantial size, making it perfect for this type of mini album project, a banner or a fantastic background panel on a card!  I added a few framed rectangles from the Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts, Wreaths Confetti Cuts and Merry & Bright stamps and coordinating Merry & Bright Confetti Cuts.  Finally, the mini album pages were tied together with some Solid Charcoal twine...and it's all ready for memory keeping!

Here's a shot of the fanned out mini album.  Each page is has a similar layout, keeping it simple for adding memories and photos later on in the season!  

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Reverse Confetti - Crazy For Christmas/Ready to Party

Hey there, 'Fetti friends and fans!
It's time to get CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS, Reverse Confetti Style!

Let's get this PARTY started as we showcase some fun Christmas projects and our favorite Reverse Confetti goodies!

Here's the official order of PARTY POSTS for our Christmas Showcase!

Stacey - That's me!

Here are the Reverse Confetti goodies that I used on my Christmas party pop today!

These mini cans of pop and swirly straws are so much fun to embellish for fun party treats!  I cut several of Reverse Confetti's Confetti Cuts...Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts, Wreaths Confetti Cuts, and Hang Ups Confetti Cuts to layer up together for a fun party tag!  The Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts was cut from one of those DARLING Holly Jolly Quick Card Panels, while another was trimmed and displayed as the focal sentiment!  Some of the new Solid Stone Twine was wrapped around the top of the pop can, through the tag and tied up in a bow!

Hope you are inspired to whip up some party treats with your Reverse Confetti goodies, too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Countdown to Confetti - Day 2

Hey there, Reverse Confetti fans!
It's time for Day 2 of Sweet Peeks at the new November release!

Today, I'm showcasing the amazing and versatile Holly Jolly Quick Card Panels, Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts and With Love stamp set...along with a couple of previously released products...the Wreaths Confetti Cuts and Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts and the Natural Spool Twine!

 After cutting the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts, Wreaths Confetti Cuts, and Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts from patterned papers, I stamped the sentiment from With Love over the tag vertically and then layered everything all up, finishing with a piece of Natural Twine!

I LOVE the new TAG!  
Isn't is awesome with the toppers...this one reminds me of a plantation windo blind!  So clever!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
Head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other designers whipped up for today!
