Yesterday I posted my very first Double Z Pop Up Card.  You can see it here.  Marcelyn showed me how to make this type of card, so I thought I’d show you some Marcelyn Double Z Pop Up cards.

The So Saffron pieces are 4 1/4″ x 11″ and 2″ x 11″.  Score both at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.

The DSP on the back of the card are 5 1/4″ x 4″ and two 2 1/2″ x 4″.

The DSP with little white balloons are 5 1/4″ x 1 3/4: and two 2 1/2″ x 1 3/4″.

The So Saffron pieces inside the “Pop Up Box” are three 3 3/4″ x 1 7/8″.  Score each at 1/2″ on both ends.

Decorate as desired.  Keep opening and shutting the card as you add decorations so you can see what will show when it’s closed and what will show when it’s open.

Please email me if you have any questions.

My Pedal Off the Pounds weigh in went really well.  Part of it was I was wearing jeans the week before and biking shorts this week. The other thing was I had celebrated my birthday the entire week before so I actually weighted more than normal.  Anyway the scale showed me at -7 lbs.  I’m sure that will never happen again, but it was a very nice start.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

Star of Light is my favorite stamp set from the 2016 Holiday catalog. I love making shaker cards now that Stampin’ Up sells the Foam Adhesive Strips.

My Hersey Nugget snowmen treats were a hit with Abby’s friends and were pinned over 6,000 times on Pinterest!

I hope Stampin’ Up! never retires the Envelope Punch Board.  I’ve made dozens of Snickers boxes with it.  More people come to my blog to get directions to make a Snickers Box than anything else.

I can’t wait to get started on new projects for 2017!

Please subscribe to my blog, follow me on Pinterest here or Facebook here.

The new 2017 Occasions catalog is awesome!  If you want a little bit of everything without spending a lot of money, order a “share” from me.  The “I want it all” share is $46 including shipping.  Please see all the details here

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

This year they gave Panera gift cards.  Last year we made the Pop Up Gift Card Holders below and Abby’s History teacher thought it was the coolest thing ever because of the way it popped up.  I wanted to make a new version of the Pop Up Gift Card Holder, but I ran out of time and whipped up twelve of the quick, but cute Santa’s Belt Gift Card Holders using the Envelope Punch Board.

This adorable Christmas purse was made by Chris Magan.  I love it when stamping friends send me pictures of their cute creations so I can share them with you!  Can you tell the reindeer was made with the Stampin’ Up! owl punch?

If you haven’t headed over to Craft Project Central to leave a comment on my project, please do it today.  I’m randomly choosing a winner who gets a free subscription for the month of December.  You have a really good chance to win because right now most of the comments on my project are from the other designers.  They already have a subscription so they won’t be in my drawing.

My 77 year old father is the elf on the left.  Kids visited his senior living facility and he and his friend were Santa’s helpers.  Dad made a great elf and is an awesome Grandpa to his nine grandkids!

We went to Christmas Eve, Eve on December 23 so we could attend church with my parents before they left town.  Our church had about 100 members when we joined in 1994.  Now there are tens of thousands of worshipers at five locations and online.  You can watch a service online here or watch previous sermons.  We have eleven Christmas Eve services at the West Des Moines church over three days and the 2,800 seat sanctuary isn’t big enough, so several hundred sit in overflow locations.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂
