Friends of Stamping Mom Friday Feature

I’m starting a new feature called Friday Friends of Stamping Mom.  I’m very blessed to receive cards, gifts and pictures of projects made by friends, other demos and blog readers (who become my friends 🙂 .   I have quite a backlog of wonderful projects that I often forget to post, so I’m going to be very intentional and post these lovely projects on as many Fridays as I can.  I’m starting with cards and gifts I received this week and working backward, so if you sent me something, hopefully you’ll see it in the next couple weeks.  I want you to know I appreciate and treasure everything I receive!

This beautiful candle was made with the Night in Bethlehem Edgelit Dies by demo Kathy Winter.  The light flickers and it is stunning in real life! Kathy’s business Facebook page is Skunk River Creations.

Kathy makes all kinds of beautiful creations! Thanks Kathy!

I wish you could see this card in real life.  There is glitter in the center of the flowers and it’s such a pretty card.

Deb made this with the retired Pyramid Pals Thinlits.  I believe she saw a version of this on Pinterest.  I love how Deb’s version turned out!  Thanks Deb! Three of my kids are singers and it just made me smile when I saw this. 🙂

Speaking of singing, here’s This is “Christmastime” (by Michael W. Smith and Joanna Carlson), the final song at Heartland Youth Choir’s WinterSongs concert last Sunday. Conductor: Barbara Sletto. Accompanist: Kathy Gedler.  Keegan is in the back row from the left- the first tall guy.

I’m hoping you’ll do me a favor. I entered a diffuser decorating contest. (Yes, I am crafty and I enjoy using Young Living Essential Oils.) Would you be willing to go to this Facebook page , scroll down to the Dec 12 post and click on my picture, Silent Night, ( village and church with the snow flakes)  second picture down on the right side.  After you click on the picture, please click the “like” button, which would get me a vote in the contest. Thanks for your help! Merry Christmas!  I’ll let you know if I win. 🙂

The layers of snow are made with glimmer paper. The trees are green and the buildings are white. This also is pretty cool in real life!

Tomorrow I get to pick Abby up from college and bring her home.  Oh happy day, happy day!

Lots to Love Box

Welcome to the Pals December 2017 Blog Hop featuring “All that Sparkles and Shines”. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The new Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) available Jan. 3, 2018 has gorgeous Silver Foil accents.  The Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon was designed to be the perfect match for this paper.

I fell in love with this paper and ribbon when I got to make this Silver Mini Gable Box at OnStage in November!  It’s full of sparkle and shine!  The new Silver Baker’s Twine shines as well.  If you want to add some sparkle and shine to your products, check out the Swee Soiree Suite in the Occasion catalog beginning Jan 3.

I heat embossed the Happy Birthday with Silver Emboss Powder and added a Silver Foil layer behind it.  This box is created with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies and is perfect for treats, gift cards or the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards, also available Jan. 3.

We had a fun day taking my parents to Keegan’s Christmas Concert with Heartland Youth Choir and then Steve and I went to see the Broadway Musical, Waitress.

Steve’s fudge factory is in full swing!  I’ve given away so many boxes of fudge, I had to call and borrow more boxes.
