Where do I begin??? This year it’s just FABULOUS!!
A favorite of mine is the Pizza Boxes. They are coated to be food safe, but hold cards equally as well. So that was my starting point for these –
The Painted Harvest is next on my favorites so far which I combined with the Merry Cafe to create 4 3×3 little cards. Another new thing is 3×3 mini envelopes! (They are under the cards in the picture.)
I used the flower center and a partial leaf to create the little pumpkin here.
Here, I created the pooling water look with the fern stamp and three inks, Black Memento, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate.
Thinking out of the box here by using the two acorns pieces, opposite, I created the holiday glasses.
The wreath here is pretty straight forward. It’s the flower without the stamped centers.
Did you notice the ‘ticket corner’ looking punched corners on all the cards? I used the new Everyday Label Punch to create them. Just insert them from the top of the punch using the edge as a guideline.
We all have our favorites and products we gravitate too. See what the other Design Team members created –
Ink – Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Black Memento, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate, Night of Navy, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Punches Everyday Label
Other – Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3×3 Envelopes

How are you going to remember those important ‘little’ things in 2014? How about jotting them down in a memory book?
How about this nifty little journal that I created? Just take a look at it. Sweet, huh? I repurposed a ready-made journal I found using some upcoming new products.
Before Christmas, I was asked to make these for gifts. I whipped them up in no time and she loved them. And, I did too! So much, that I created more for myself. These are the ones I made before Christmas. I had snapped this (not too good) photo before I gave them to her.
I used some upcoming Sale-a-Bration DSP called Sweet Sorbet. The ‘polka dot’ Decorative Label Punches are from the Good as Gold Card Kit. They have a bit of ‘gold’ in them that just ties everything together.
The gold 2104 is cut from the envelope liner in the card kit. It is the retired Go-Go Boots Alphabet. I printed ‘A Year to Remember’ on Whisper White and just framelit cut it out. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits.
I tied the gold elastic cord around the side for a little extra something.
I made this little sweet banner for my collection. It’s tiny! This is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card I placed it on. It just didn’t show up any other way.
I made the banner flags using an upcoming Sale-a-Bration punch (yes, you can earn it FREE!) and of course that Good as Gold Card Kit. Again. The letters are from Target. Their Dollar Spot. Matched perfectly. So, I went for it.
Have a happy and safe New Year’s celebration. Whatever you do.
As you can see, I took a little break from bloggin’. Sure have missed it. But, this time of the year is quite busy. Have a ‘new’ card to share!
Take a look –
Yes, very appropriate. You know, one of those cards I just created from my stash…..
Supplies. Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Basic Black Ink. Whisper White card stock. Brushed Silver card stock. Silver Glimmer Paper. Night & Day Specialty DSP (retired). Word Window Punch. Modern Label Punch. Alphabet Simple Numbers Sizzix Dies (yes, thank you Christmas!). Silver Tinsel Trim (retired, but on the CLEARANCE RACK).
So, not too bad for my first post of 2012. New computer. Yeah! So, It’s a learning curve….
