New Year's Project Life

I am in the process of working on a new blog header so for the time being I am using my old stand by.  So with that said my samples today are from my NEW Stampin Bingo group on FB.  These were my prizes from last night. We play each Tuesday night at 8pm. Contact me if you want to be on the list.

The first photo is a Happy New Year Card I made using the negative from the Large Numbers Framilites Dies from the new catalog coming Jan 5th.

Happy New Year 2016 - Bingo - Open House

Today I am organizing my stamp area and changing some things around. Trying to stay more focus on my Stampin' Up! Business for the new year.

I am boxing up my fall and holiday stamp sets (16) and packing them away so I can work on the new upcoming Spring Occasions catalog and the spectacular Sale A Bration catalog. If you don't have one and aren't connected to another demonstrator contact me today to get your own copy. 

This is a view of my desk after cleaning it off. I got a new plant to make me happy when I am stamping. Ok whatever it takes to motivate me to clean my stamp space!  RIGHT!!

I found an ugly beige metal container that had been hanging around for a while and I painted it (to put my current samples in) and the mason jar I painted to put my business card in.  I saw that on Pinterest!

I love that happy mug because or the bright color and it coordinates with my aqua accents.  (It does make me happy!)


 I starting something new on Facebook and if you love Bingo you are going to have fun with this.  Contact me if you want to play.  It is simple and there are prizes.  We play each Tuesday night at 8pm on my Stampin Bingo group so check it out. 

Reminder NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE THIS COMING SUNDAY 1-3-16 from 2-4 floating.  Stop by for a fun make and take and light snacks as well as picking up your new catalogs.  I will be taking orders from the new catalog that day.  Contact me to confirm so I can prepare for you.

Sneak Peek - Occasions Catalog

A Nice Cuppa- is one of my favorite new stamp sets. 

It is hard to tell by my photo but I used Smoky Slate for my background card stock.  I cut out the tea pot with the matching Cups and Kettle Framelit Dies and the tea bag I cut out of vellum and punched a small heart from the Confetti Hearts Border Punch and added the Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine and the heart type steam pieces were in that same die group.  The circle was cut from vellum and the dotted designer paper if from the Coordinating DSP Have a Cuppa Paper Stack.  I love it when all they have all the products to match. NO guessing on my part.

You are going to love the new Occasions Catalog along with the new Sale a Bration catalog where you get a free product every time you spend $50 from either the new catalog or the annual catalog. You can start ordering from both of the new catalogs on January 5th.

Stampin' Bunco

Once in a while my Stamp Club and my Stampin' Bunco Club end on the same week.  Some of my club members cross over to both events.  What fun we all have.  This month June was our Stampin' Bunco hostess and she cooked a delicious meal and her house was so pretty with her Christmas decorations.  We played bunco and had a gift exchange and had a great time. Our Stampin' Bunco group has been together for 2 years and we always look forward to being together each month.  We are great prayer partners too.

 We loved eating all together on her porch and such a pretty table setting (thanks June for everything) Marianne is the second one in on the right. I think this is the only pic of her that turned out.

Stamp Club Fun

Stamp Club

Last week was so much fun being with my stamping friends. My Sassy Stampers Club started back up for the next 6 months. We last meet in June because of travel and out of town members that are here in Vero Beach on a part time basis.

We are missing two of our group last week. Bonnie had to leave early and Susan had not gotten back into town at the time.  We will be back all together next month.  I love stamping with these wonderful ladies and I am glad to be back together. From left to right is Judy, Penny, Carol, Julie and Tama.  

December Club projects: This first one was from my November Paper Pumpkin kit. I hadn't used it yet and I thought it would be perfect to give them a little taste of what Paper Pumpkin is all about.

Gift card or money holder. Everyone seems to love these at Christmas.

This is our last card. I am so glad that that fun punch made the Holiday carry over list along with the Embellished Ornaments Bundle

Christmas Decor

Today I worked on decorating the house for Christmas. Now that we have retired and have a smaller space we don't have room for a large live tree but this year we decided we miss the wonderful smell of a real tree and got a small one.  If you have followed my blog for the last couple of years you know I am crazy about using aqua's in my home and I love it paired with red. If you notice the tree had our Pom Pom Trim from the Holiday Catalog for a garland.  :)

The red pillow has another pillow underneath that I made last summer, I added red fabric and added our white ribbon to make it look like a package.   I love the red accents.

I got this crazy idea to wrap some of the books on the bookcase in red polka dot wrapping paper in random books not all.  I am thinking about how that looks and is it worth the trouble.  Jury is still out on that one.

How is your Christmas decorating going?  Have you used any of your Stampin' UP!  paper crafting products in your decorating?
