In Stamping Mode

A Taylor Challenge and Scrapbook pages

Wow, it feels like I haven't updated in ages! I've been so busy with Christmas quickly approaching. I am VERY proud to say, however, that I have finished most of my shopping and all the gifts are wrapped!! Oh yes...let me just take a quick moment to pat myself on the back once again. :) I also really have been busy stamping! I wanted to participate in Taylor's latest cupcake challenge and this is my Christmas card.


I used more of that glitter paper (love it!) and the retired Stampin' Up! set, Love and Joy. That's such a classy set, I don't know why they let it go! It will probably make another appearance for Valentine's. I also used retired Dots & Dashes dsp. This was a pretty quick and simple card to put together. You can't see it, but I used the at you! Spica red pen to color in the middle snowflake for sparkle. Looks VERY sparkly in person!

My scrapbook club also met today and this was the spread that they did.



The second page was TOTALLY CASEd from Stampin By The Sea. I just love her scrapbook pages. Sorry the pictures don't turn out very well....I seriously need to figure out how to take good photos of 12x12 pages. Add that to the ever-growing list of things!!

I also came up with a progressive to 12x12 page using the I Wish simply scrappin' kit. This layout is super simple and all I added was some glitter and ribbon. I can't wait to put some pictures on it, but here's how the layout went.

6 x 6


8 1/2 x 11


and the 12 x 12

Ok...I think that's a fair amount of wall of text/pics in a single post. Don't forget, you can click on the photos to see a better view!

Thanks so much for getting "in stamping mode!"

That card is stunning! I love the colors, the layout, the glitter paper - all of it! The scrapbook papers (and pics of the kiddos) are gorgeous as well!!

Such great scrapbook pages! They look so pretty & easy to do.... almost makes me want to start scrapping in addition to stamping. :)
