Flip over calendar ~ December Christmas Decoration

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well here we are – December 1st and the final page of the flip over calendar for 2021. If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that in the early part of last December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another for 2022 – well that class is scheduled for this coming Saturday and Tuesday – all the design is done and supplies are cut!.

I have loved sharing each page at the start of each month and am seriously thinking of doing the same for the 2022 calendar. So today I share, December with Christmas lights and a tree ornament – very festive!

Elegant Happy Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today is Christmas Eve – as my great- niece would be telling her Daddy today ‘ one more sleep until Father Christmas gets here’. I am spending my day with final preparation for tomorrow’s lunch and then settling down in front of the fire to watch some Christmas movies!

They say that less is more ~ not entirely sure I agree with that when it comes to card making but today I used a ready made card base from the Gold Cards and Envelopes Pack. It is Very Vanilla and has gold foil decoration on it, so that was my color choices decided, then a little dash of red to finish off! And, you know it was surprisingly quick to create all of the 10 cards that were in the pack!

Little Log Cabin Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have a card buffet every month, one of my ladies asked if we could do a Christmas card with a ‘little house’ So I scanned the catalog and found the Rustic Retreat Stamp set had the cutest little log cabin ~ it turned out to be the most popular card in the November card buffet!

This stamp set was designed by SU demonstrator Mary Polcin who was given the honor when she achieved a Million Dollars in sales! It has some great images and greetings for Christmas, Birthday, Thinking of You and while I have used the Christmas themed ones, there are a few others that would work just great for a masculine card!….. watch this space for when I work out a design for one of those!

Happy July 4th………. 650th Blog Post

WOW – 650 blog posts since I first started back in July 2013 – so today is a double celebration!  In the early days my posts were few and far between – often times I could not think of what to share, but these days I try very hard to post every other day as well as share video tutorials thru my You Tube channel.

I appreciate you following me, liking my posts and more importantly making comments – it just lets me know that you are all out there and I am not just talking to myself, so please ‘comment ‘ and ‘ like ‘ away – I truly  appreciate your giving me some of your time!

Now – back to business…………….. I am not a great one for going onto  Pinterest – not that I don’t love the whole concept but I loose track of time and suddenly 2 or 3 hours have passed and I have little to show for it!!  So I ration myself ~ maybe for about 30 mins or so.
