Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas Kit & Kaboodle!

Hey y’all!  Happy Black Friday! Are you one of those folks who’ve been up since last night – waiting to storm the Walmart/Best Buy/etc doors at the very moment they open today?

We – most assuredly! – are not!  We do have plans to go to Tractor Supply today – but it’s under duress and only cuz they’ve got a heckuva deal on dog and cat food!  Otherwise, we’d hunker down behind our gate and stay here till Monday!  And put up Christmas decorations!

And – speaking of Christmas – with Thanksgiving safely behind us (hope you had a wonderful day!) – it’s time to really put some energy into getting ready for the Next.  Big.  Thing.


To that end – let me show you what I put together yesterday in between roasting Brussels sprouts and mashing potatoes!  And, it’s available to you right now to help you get ready for Christmas, too.  It’s the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit!!  

Take a look-see at what you can make!

So – since this is a Project Kit, not an All Inclusive Kit – you do need to be sure you’ve got the “rest” of the pieces and parts to put this kit together.  Like…the Watercolor Christmas stamp set ( you can get it in Clear or Wood – and it’s got the most beautiful sentiments and fonts!), Basic Black Archival Ink and adhesive (Fast Fuse, Stampin’ Dimensionals and your Fine-Tip Glue Pen).  Once you’ve got all that gathered up – just follow the easy directions and wham bam!  Twenty pretty note cards speedy quick!

I did get a little jiggy with one of the designs – I decided to turn it on its side.

You can do that, you know!  Deviate from the directions and make them your own! 🙂

They even include twenty heavyweight envelopes and beautiful gold foil liners!

I, cuz…it’s me!…took it another step and added a little Christmas tree from Watercolor Christmas onto the front of each gold-lined envelope.  I quickly colored the tree with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  🙂

So – I know you need Christmas cards – we all do!  Don’t hesitate to grab you one or two of these kits and get crafty!  Hope you like!

Finn had a wonderful Thanskgiving!  He went with us and played with Scout!  And played and played and played!  

And…did his Dad take any pictures??  Nope.  

There simply was no getting a picture.  They were a blur!  And I was in the house with Jan, getting the last minute things done.

When we finally got home last night, we were all stuffed (well – we were, Finn wasnt’!) and ready for bed.  

Which he let us know by heading into the kennel at just the barest hint that we were heading to bed ourselves.  

He waited so patiently for his go-to-bed-snacks.

Really.  How cute is this funny, sweet little dog?!?

    A belated Happy Thanksgiving! I rarely order kits, but I must say – THIS kit is tempting me big time! I love it! The paws!! How cute are the paws/hands as he waits so patiently – so adorable! Gotta go – cooking Thanksgiving dinner today (with the help of my daughters) and transporting it to my parents’ house (10 min. away).

    • This is a good one, for sure! Yes – his hands are too cute. I never know which is harder – having everyone come over or toting everything somewhere else?! Hope you have a great day, Elisha! 🙂

    Look at those crossed paws! What a sweetie. Clara and I are up at 0dark30. Do not ask why. I don’t know, but am sure it will be regretted by lunch time.
    Nice cards!

    • Thanks, Mom – it’s a good kit! Sorry you guys were up so early! We’ve been blessed with a pup who likes to sleep as much as he likes to play! 🙂

  3. Glad you had a wonderful day. Whether you are making a card from scratch or using a kit, I love to read your blog first thing in the morning. I go nowhere near stores if I can help it. I like to shop online. Once a year I go clothes shopping and shoe shopping and that is quite the chore. I don’t like to grocery shop either…my boys do that and I am thankful. Finn is such a sweet, handsome boy and I know he likes to go to the store…well, at least Tractor Supply! Have a great weekend.

    • Heck, Finn would LOVE the crowds on Black Friday! All those people to pet pet PET him!! I’m also a big fan of the Online route – Amazon gets my vote almost every time!! Thanks much, Karen – have a great rest of the weekend! 🙂

  4. It’s an awesome card kit! Apparently great minds think alike…my sister and I put mine together this week too! 🙂 Glad that you and Finn had a great Thanksgiving!

  5. I am not much of a ‘kit’ person, but you make this one tempting. I go NOWHERE near a store on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I don’t like to shop anytime, and who needs the fighting crowds? I will spend my day cleaning up after having 30 people here last night, 10 of them under 10 years old. It was great except after a while the noise level was incredible! Finn would have loved it. All those people to pet him. Poor kitty had to stay in the laundry room as a niece is allergic to cats.
    On second thought, maybe I will spend the day making cards!

    • That’s a lotta peeps in one house, Julie! My goodness! I’m sure you loved every minute – and equally sure you’re enjoying the peace and quiet again! This is a great kit, for sure! 🙂

    Mary, your sweet little dog is SO CUTE that my heart does a lil happy dance every time I see a picture of his handsome lil face and/or read one of your little stories about him. 😍
    Happy “Thanksgiving left-overs” Day to you! 🦃

    What a super fun kit, and it looks awesome, too!
