Stampin’ Up! Bring on the Presents Jelly Jar Gifts!

Happy day after Christmas, y’all!  Hope your day was everything you’d hoped for and more!  Ours was great – and sort of longer than we’d planned.  And…fuller.

Yikes – I was full BEFORE dessert came out of the fridge.

Which absolutely does NOT mean I didn’t have a little of all the offerings! 😉

But – we got home a little later than planned – the horses were “STARVING OUT HERE, MOM!!”

I decided to use the fun little Bring on the Presents set one last time before the end of the year to make some little tags and bows for the jelly jars filled with homemade Apple Butter that I gave to my friends at dinner.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bring On All The Bright Christmas Presents

Okay, you guys.  I’m finally caged to what the heck DAY it is!  Sheesh – can you believe that I thought there were still TWO weeks until Christmas!?  Yesterday was like…Springing Forward – for me.  But…it was a WEEK forward.  Like an HOUR, only….SO.  MUCH.  WORSE!!  All of a sudden my mild panic became…abject horror!!  I’m not RUNNING out of time – I’m flat OUT of time.

So – I baked like crazy yesterday and did some wrapping.  Still not gonna get everything where it needs to go by THIS Christmas, but…perhaps my late-arriving goodies will help to extend the holiday cheer!

Yea.  That’s my story.  Also – at this point it is what it is, so… 😳

My card for today is likely going to be one of th last that will be all about Christmas.  I mean – there’s only like 5 more days where a Christmas card is appropriate.  LOL.

For this one, I used the wonderful pine paper from the All Is Bright DSP and the Bring On The Presents and Merry Christmas To All stamp sets to make you a…present!  Take a look-see:

Morning, y’all!  Happy Monday!  I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today.  The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty.  It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed.  Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate.  And maybe a cookie.

Or twelve! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Season

Happy Weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned!  I made it home safely yesterday ahead of the next winter storm.  Whoo-hooo!  Did not get the test done that needed to be done – the plane simply wouldn’t cooperate.  But – I got a nice little road trip and saw some of my friends from our last event in CA, which was fun.  So – far from wasted for me! 🙂

I’ve got a pretty little Christmas card for you today using the wonderful Winter Woods stamp set.  I set it stop some Woodland TIEF embossing – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All Is Bright

Mornin’, y’all.  It’s Monday, the Monday after we lost #41.  He’s with Barbara and his little girl, now – but…we’re worse for the loss of George H.W. Bush.  He was a great man and a great patriot, who exuded grace and civility throughout his Presidency and his entire life of service.

I’m proud to have served under you, sir.

I’ve got a quick and easy card for you today – one that you can whip out in a heartbeat!  A little paper – in this case from the All Is Bright DSP – and stamp and some ink!  The Merry Christmas To All set is perfect if you want a big, bold sentiment!  Take a look-see…

The layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week – although I turned it a little! 🙂

And the theme is from The Paper Players challenge!

Buckle-up, Buttercup – this’ll take about two blinks of an eye!


I started with a plain piece of paper from the All Is Bright DSP and matted it on Real Red for the card front.

Then I matted a smaller piece on Real Red and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I added the flourish in Real Red, matted the panel on Real Red – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it with a Gold Metallic Pearl and the card front was done!

Told ya! 😉

On the inside, I added a second Shaded Spruce sentiment and a Real Red flourish to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Merry Christmas To All flourishes in Real Red on the front…

…and then I put some more of the All Is Bright DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This very basic layout is perfect with some All Is Bright greenery and a bold, center-stage-taking sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set!  And – you could do this same design with any of your favorite DSPs and a big, stand-out sentiment!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today’s Finn Fan Fix has absolutely nothing to do with Finn.

Well – he DID go up to the gate to pick up the boxes.

So…it’s Finn-Fan-Fix-Adjacent! 🙂

We got a call from the Amazon Sunday delivery lady saying she had two boxes for us – so we just had her leave them inside the gate and then Wayne and the Man went and got them.

I was trying to remember what I’d ordered.  I’m a bit of a Prime-a-holic, y’all.  Not gonna lie.

So anyway – Wayne comes back in with…

Now I’m totally stumped.  What the….??

No kidding.  Three items and the packing slip.  Not another thing.  Those could have fit in a padded envelope – and not even needed a very BIG one!!  LOL!!

Well – it’s a good box for mailing Christmas I guess!! 🙂
