Mad About You...December Stamp of the Month

After playing around with the new Stamp of the Month for December, I am very pleased with it.  At first I thought it would be just for Valentine's Day layouts and cards.  Well, to my surprise it really is perfect for all things "Love".  The sentiments on it is awesome: "Mad About You", "You're Sweet", "I Love You", "Love to Love You", "Over the Moon in Love with You", and of course "Happy Valentine's Day".  Can't you see layouts for weddings, births, and that special someone.

For the Artboard this month I am using Roxie and a little bit of Elemental paper, Ink colors: Smoothie, Cocoa, and Tulip, sparkles, silver glitz, and Stamps: Bohemian Alphabet and Mad About You.  The Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge will help you cut out 4 great images.  You can get all of these supplies from my website.

Let me know what you will do with this fabulous stamp of the month.  You can add this set to your orders starting December 1st-31st.  Then you can add the Rock the Block campaign starting December 19th.  If you like any of the projects shown here call me and we can do one of them at your next home gathering.

    I have been super busy all weekend long getting the Christmas decorations up in the house.  Yesterday my mom, son, and I went to the Festival of the Trees in Dearborn.  There were some very pretty trees this year.  I enjoy going so I can get inspired to decorate my tree differently each year.  Here is the Cat in the Hat tree.  It was super cute!

This year I decided to not use ribbon on my tree but to add all kinds of floral pix at the top around my star.  I am quite happy with the results.  My tree is very traditional in colors: red, green, white, and gold.  My ornaments are stars, holly, santas, snowmen, and the snowflakes.
Do you do the same things on your tree year after year or do you change it up from time to time?  What colors are on your tree?  Let me know what you think.

On a separate note, your newsletters will be emailed on Monday to your inboxes.  It is filled with December and January classes and specials.  If you are interested in getting the newsletter email me.

Hugs, Holly

Mini Crops are a lot of Fun!!!!!

    This past Saturday, November 12, was the mini 8 hour crop at my house.  We had so much fun!!!!!!  Dinner was yummy :)   And the stamp fairy came for a visit again 3 times.  She really likes to make visits at the crops.  During the ladies worked on their crafts.  Some worked on Christmas cards, some worked on Christmas tags, while others worked on scrapbook layouts or making mini books for Disney and the Wizard of Oz.
Linda learned how to stamp pretty ballet slippers on her daughter's dance pages.

Linda, Emily, Katie, and Stephanie all took a quick break for the camera from their scrapbooking.

Meghan, Mandi, Lori, and Anne were busy Christmas elves making cards and tags when I caught them with my camera.

Thanks ladies for another wonderful day of food, fun, and laughs.  I am looking forward to the next 2 in January.  There is only one spot left for January 21st.  If you are interested let me know as soon as possible.
