I recently did a one on one card swap here on my blog and have some of these cards to show you.  This first card is a very nice fun fold card.  Toni sent this to me just to be sweet.  I love it Toni, thanks so much!

Here’s Linda L’s cute swap card.

Next time I do a card swap, I hope you’ll consider participating.  It’s pretty easy when you only have to make one card.

Stampin Up cards made with Cherry on Top DSP designed by Ruth Sollberger.

Ruth cased one of my 3×3 card sets and sent me this adorable picture quite awhile ago. I love your cards Ruth!

I love to CASE cards, and love it when others CASE my cards.  If you ever choose to CASE one of my cards, please send me a picture so I can show it on my blog.  I also love receiving cards in the mail.  If you send me a card, I’ll put it on a future Friends of Stamping Mom Friday feature.

I bet you love to receive cards too.  One of my new year’s resolutions is to actually send the cards I make.  I give a lot of cards away as gift sets, but don’t send as many as I should.

To start the new year off right, I sent about ten cards this morning.  I also sent out some of the new catalogs.  If you’d like me to be your Stampin’ Up demo, please email me and I’ll send you the new catalogs.  My email is Beth@StampingMom.com  If you work with another demo, please check with them for your catalogs.

Saturday is the last day to reserve your Stamparatus.  You may think you can wait until June, but when you see it, I believe you’ll want it sooner.  Reserve yours here

Jan 2 is the last day to order from the Holiday catalog.  Many item are on sale.  Order online here.

I am doing shares from the Occasions catalog and plan to post the details on Jan. 1.  I will begin to order the supplies on Jan. 3 and get everything out to you quickly.

I’d love it if you would come to our stamp camp in West Des Moines, IA on Saturday Jan. 27. Details below.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

The whole McCullough clan (24 people) are descending on West Des Moines tomorrow and will be here until Sunday.  The presents are wrapped, the house is decorated, the menu is planned and the groceries are purchased.  I do have some last minute cleaning and a little more food prep to do tomorrow.  I wonder how much sleep we’ll get with 14 teenagers in the house for two nights?!  The other eight adults will stay in a hotel while Steve and I have a slumber party with all the kids.  Hopefully they’ll want to do some stamping and play some cards!

 

 

Seasonal Chums Pop Up Gift Card Holder

Happy Christmas Eve!

We are having another Stamp Camp on Saturday,January 27 and it’s going to be awesome! I will be very surprised if it doesn’t sell out.  Please register soon if you’re interested.

Every Christmas I make Pop Up Gift Card Holders for my kid’s teachers.  Since Keegan is my last kid in high school, I guess I’ll have to find some other group of people to make them for next year.  A couple years ago, one of Abby’s high school teachers brought the gift card holder to our parent teacher conference in March.  I was impressed he kept it from Dec to March.  He was impressed that the gift card “popped up” when he opened it.  He brought it to the conference to show me how it worked and how much he enjoyed it.  I was amused that he cared enough to keep it, and that he wanted to show me how to worked, since I actually made it.  Anyway, I decided if I can bring that much joy to a hard working high school teacher, I should make them every year. 🙂

Here’s this year’s version.  Abby asked what she could do to help and I handed her 5 snowmen that needed colored.  She was rather pleased, because my normal response when she offers to help, is to ask her to empty the dishwasher.

Ok, so Sean got home at 2am this morning from Seattle.  I love it when everyone is home. Tonight I asked everyone to stay home for dinner and an after dinner card game. I made Ziti Cucina, my version of my favorite restaurant’s signature pasta dish.  Everyone loves it which makes my heart happy.  We then had a rousing game of hearts.  I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.  I’m glad no one was here to witness the antics of my family.  I thank God that He gave me a wonderful husband and four crazy awesome kids.  I hope they stay friends for their entire lives.  By the way, Steve won the game. 🙂

Thursday night we went to Hope Ames, the church Ryan attends at college.  Ryan is a volunteer on the production team.  It was fun to get to be at Danny Housholder’s first Christmas Eve service as a pastor.  It was an amazing service and Danny gave an outstanding sermon.  The production team was pretty impressive as well. (Good job, Ryan 🙂  I can’t wait until our huge Christmas Eve service tomorrow at Wells Fargo Arena.

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and celebration of the birth of Jesus!

Abby and I spent the day preparing for tomorrow.  Steve is hosting 18 of his coworkers for lunch tomorrow.  Yes, that means 18 fudge boxes and two pretty table settings.  Steve makes the fudge, Abby specializes in the table setting and I cleaned the house and made the fudge boxes.
