Rudolph the Sparkly Nosed Reindeer Card

I had a great Stitched Stockings Punch Class last week!  This is one of the cards that we made.  I really love how versatile the Stocking Builder punch! 
I do have a little hint for you if you want to put the Baker's Twine thru the Mini Jingle Bell, use a needle threader!  At my class I thought we were NEVER going to get them threaded!  So sorry girls, I wish I would have figured it out sooner!
Stamp set:
Four the Holidays

Garden Green cardstock
Red Glitter paper
Crumb Cake cardstock
Cherry Cobbler cardstock
Chocolate Chip cardstock
Very Vanilla cardstock

Chocolate Chip ink pad

Cherry Cobbler/White Baker’s Twine
Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder
Square Lattice embossing folder
Snowflake punch
Stocking Builder punch
Mini Jingle Bells

If you have a chance, you should sit down and make this sweet little reindeer!  If you need the supplies you can order directly from me online at OR if you are local, give me a call and we can make some together! 
Have a great day!

Pick Your Poison Halloween MDS scrapbook page

Welcome to the SU Stars Scrappin' Blog Hop!  If you are just starting the hop make sure you go back and check out Connie Smith's blog at: to see what wonderful projects she has created for the hop!  There are 20 blogs for this all weekend hop, so sit back, relax and enjoy!

I haven't scrapbooked anything in a while, so the challenge this month of scrapbooking something was well overdue!  Halloween is sneaking up on us and before you know it all of those little trick or treaters will be at our doors wanting candy!  I decided to used my Stampin'Up! My Digital Studio to create this page.  The background paper is from the Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper download.  The flourish you see behind some of the photos is from Baroque Motifs and the little spider hanging from the journaling box is from the Eat, Drink and Be Scary download.

What I really love about using MDS is that you can move your different elements around without cutting paper and decide what layout you like best.  I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook page! 

Next on the SU Stars Scrappin' Blog Hop is Jackie Watson's blog .  I am sure she created something really special to share with you as well!

Have a great weekend!

Berry Blossoms ~Thank you so, so much card

You will have to forgive my long absense of not posting.  I have been so sick over the Labor Day weekend and am just now feeling human again!  My poor husband took wonderful care of the kids and I thought of him when I made this card I am sharing with you now. 
I cut the flower pieces out on my Fun Flowers Bigz L Die with the Big Shot die cutting machine.  I then crumpled them up into a ball and repeated until the fibers in the paper were broke down enough that I could separate the flower piece into 2 separate layers. This technique is called faux suede when you have the raw, inside part of the flower exposed.  I mounted the layers together with dimensionals and I think it turned out great!  I really like the Berry Blossoms DSP and hope to share more projects made with it soon!

Products I used:
122350 Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper
122652 Delightful Dozen stamp set
121045 Basic Black Cardstock
101179 Basic Black Classic Ink
122926 Lucky Limeade Cardstock
122925 Calypso Coral Cardstock
