The Holidays!

The Most Wonderful (and Busiest) Time of the Year!


Ah yes, it is that time of year … back to school, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas … and then there’s the new year and Valentine’s Day is not too far behind. It’s the time of year when the holidays seem to pile up on each other and our “To Do” List seems to keep growing. But don’t put card making or handmade gifts to the wayside. Here are some reasons why:


It’s Relaxing

            Take time for yourself to enjoy your hobby and check things off of your list of things to do at the same time. A fun gift to create are little treat boxes with the Matchbox Bigz XL Big Shot die (#114890), some labels, and the It’s a Wrap Holidays stamp set (#122770 – wood/#122772 – clear). Stamp the labels, wrap them around mini candy bars and put them into the Matchbox and they are ready to give. Embellish the Matchbox for an added touch. And don’t forget to enjoy some chocolate while you are stamping for some added relaxation.


It’s Personal

            You can create cards and gifts that reflect your personality or that are personalized for the recipient. Handmade, stamped cards and gifts are the things that the recipient will hang onto long after the holidays are over. There is just something about the thoughtfulness of a handmade card or gift that makes it that much more special. The new Stampin’ Card Keeper (#124107) makes a great gift filled with some handmade cards, and also makes a great way to keep organized during the holidays.


It’s Festive

            Start a family tradition. Create wreaths for the different seasons or holidays as a family and let each member of the family create and add a personal element. You can even incorporate Simply Adorned charms (#116799) into your project and family members can create different inserts to change with the seasons.


Pull out your catalogs, plan your projects, order your supplies, and then you will be ready for what the holiday season brings you. If you would like personal design assistance for your holiday projects, please contact me and I would be more than happy to help.

End of Summer!

End of Summer


Oh no! Where did it go? It seems that it was just Memorial Day, and now in the blink of an eye, summer starts to come to a close with an onslaught of Back to School sales. As kids are getting ready to go back to school, it is also a great time for everyone else to get ready for fall. Just doing a little bit each day can help you to get organized and ahead of the game before the busy schedules of fall are in full swing. Need somewhere to get started? Check out these fun and practical ideas:


Stamp up cards to replenish your stash.

            Look ahead for the next 4-5 months to see how many birthday cards you’ll need to have on hand. Stamp up some extra thank you, thinking of you, get well, and note cards, too. You can use the Medium Die Box (#122220), with or without the insert, to keep your cards organized. (The box fits the standard-sized cards on end nicely.) You can even create some dividers for the different kinds of cards that you use. The Medium Die Boxes come with a nice label plate on the outside so that you can mark what’s inside. And don’t forget to make it pretty with a little bit of ribbon, and maybe a paper flower or two. Also consider getting yourself a personalized address stamp and postage stamps to keep with your card stash to make sending out cards a breeze. Stampin’ Up! has a variety of personalized stamps to choose from, like the Conventional Three-Line stamp (#115580).


Start your school year scrapbooks.

            Or if you have one big scrapbook that you add to each year, start by making some general pages – first day of school, school pictures, sports, fall fun, etc. to get a start on the pictures that you’ll be taking throughout the year, This will make it easier to keep up with your scrapbook as the year progresses. The Simply Scrappin’ Kits are a great way to make scrapbook pages come together quickly. Check out our new kits, like Party Animal (#122372) and Tickets & Tags (#122373). If you are a digital scrapbooker, My Digital Studio software (#118108) can have scrapbook layouts ready for your pictures or you can create your own custom pages right on your computer.


Some other ideas you might like include decorating and embellishing plain old file folders with Designer Series Paper like the Pocketful of Posies (#122354) or Domestic Goddess (#122355), using Chalkboard Decor Elements, like Days of the Week (#122298) to keep the whole family organized, and creating mini bulletin boards with an inexpensive frame and our Corkboard (#119819). And if you are really motivated, you might even want to start thinking about and planning your holiday cards …


So get ready and be ready! I know it’s hard to think about fall when summer is still lingering, but a little bit of preparation can ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy each moment in the busy months to come.
