And the Stockings Were Hung!

Getting Ready for Christmas

The adorable friends from House-Mouse Designs® have spent all week decorating the house and decking the halls! They’re ready for Santa to come down the chimney and bring them some treats. We’re sharing some great samples from our July Catalog this week made by our terrific Design Team. Maybe one of them will inspire you to get your holiday decorate on!! You can click on the pictures to see the projects on our website with supply list and instructions.

They’ve decorated their tree! Although it’s a wonder they have any ornaments left after Monica’s Balancing Act!

They’ve put the finishing touches on the Christmas Cookies, although knowing Amanda and Maxwell there might not be any left for Santa!

They’ve wrapped the gifts… uh… well… maybe Maxwell, Monica and Amanda are hoping for a ride in Santa’s Sleigh??

Finally the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Maxwell is taking no chances that Santa might miss his! He’s even got a peppermint stick for Old St. Nick. Well… what’s left of one anyway!

Christmas Preparations!

Getting Ready for Christmas

Like it or not, the holidays are fast approaching! When do you decorate for Christmas? (or whatever holiday you celebrate)  Do you like to have all your decorations up when the family comes for Thanksgiving? Do you avoid the Black Friday crowds and stay home to deck the halls? Are you content with a wreath on the door and a Merry Christmas on your lips? Or do you make every room in your house a dazzling showplace to Christmas?

Our friends at House-Mouse Designs® go all out! They want to impress Santa so that he’ll leave them goodies galore!  Our design team is swamped this week with the Tue-Wed-Thu blog hop with Spellbinders and the Fri-Sat-Sun blog hop with Tombow! (sooo much goodness for one week) We’re going to help them out in the afternoons by sharing some of the “holiday preparations” cards and projects they made for our catalog. If you click on the picture it will take you to the Supplies and Instructions on our website. We hope you find some inspiration for your own holiday cards (or decorations!) this year.

Stringing cranberries is a fun activity to do with kids. We always added popcorn, but I imagine that Muzzy ate all the popcorn (like we used to) before she got this far!

Quick Cards with Iconic Stampendous Stamps

Spending too much time stamping your quick cards and not enough time finishing them? Save a few extra minutes by using our Cling Jumbo Stamps. Here are two sets with sample ideas to get your cardmaking mojo on the move.

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Here’s what you could expect from our Delicate Snow set. Embossing these snowflakes really adds to the delicate detail to create a gorgeous card with WOW! Krissy Fossmeyer has that WOW factor for her Delicate Snowflake Card. The adhesive pearls add just the right touch quickly and easily.

There are some fun stamps in our Top Hat Snowman that span the  width of a tall card. You can see this set in action on Debi Hammons’ card.

Raven Wrap Up!

Ravens Ruled this week on our blog! We’re so glad you could join us!

Several of our Design Team Members made great samples using our Crows and Ravens, but they were posting with the Dreamweaver/Core’dinations collaboration and didn’t have another chance to post their projects! We wanted you to see them here.

Clicking on a photo below will take you to that project on our website with full supplies and instructions so you can get flying with us.

Thanks for joining us this week!!
