I thinkI covered everything. Thanks for stopping by. Terry

snowflake foam favors

These were favors for the holiday Stamp a stack I just hosted this past weekend. We used Stampin ups new snowflake diecut and glittered them up and added silver cording to make them an ornament.
Fun and easy. We made about 36. We used spray adhesive to make it go even quicker. TFL Terry

My Holiday Stamp a Stack cards

I hosted a Holiday Stamp a Stack this past weekend. I hosted it with my upline friend and this year it was at my house so I designed two and she designed 3. We did 5 sets of 4 each. The card above I designed using the new Bigshot die and you can find it here We used Daubers with craft white behind the snowflake. The size of the card was different too, it measures 3 1/4 by 5 1/2. I bought the envelope from the dollar store but they sell them at Staples too. The snowflake is White foam. Fun!! We also used stampin up's glue stick to stick the foam to the card then we went over the snowflake with the glue and sprinkled it with some bling(dazzeling diamonds). I used the white taffeta ribbon and the ski slope designer paper from stampin ups holiday mini. The sentiment is from the to you and yours holiday set from stampin up. TFL
This card above was one that I designed. I got the cuttlebug dot idea from Rainy from splitcoast. She used lovely as a tree . THe house set is called to you and yours and it's in stampin ups main idea catalog. I was so excited to use basic grey in a christmas card. I used Basic Grey for both Paper and Ink. I put it with stampin ups in color for the year called Riding Hood Red. Again I used it for both INK and Paper. I used Whisper white card stock and for accessories I used the cuttlebug dots template for snow. Lastly the ribbon is the taffeta Riding Hood Red.

Coming up soon. I'll be uploading the door prizes( Hoiliday decorated Frames) I made for the door prizes. THe Stamp a stack was a success. It was a long two days but fun all the same. THanks for stopping by. Terry

I got them for 27 cents each. bargin right. I hope anyway. This was really fun to make and I did five sets throughout one day. Sorry for the top picture and not being able to see the bottom part of the tin but I had a hard time not getting a shadow in the picture.

I hope you like. TFL~ Terry

Ink: Red Robin, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Blue, close to cocoa,

Back from Disney

I'm Home!!!! We had a Great time. I have tons of pictures to go through but I do have some to share. I'm off from work this week too and it's going so fast. I'm preparing for a holiday Stamp a stack I'm hosting and I'm also making 25 christmas cards for a donation for a silent auction my DD's School is hosting. Plus I'm doing a craft fair the weekend after Thanksgiving. My brain has been all over the place so I've been stamping but nothing to upload yet.

I had a ton of fun but It's great to be home.
Up pic is of the children the first day at breakfast.

THis is my whole family that went. My Sisters and mine. We called it the CESMEHART's DISNEY VACATION. THis is at Epcot if you haven't guessed.

My Sister and I at Breakfast with Mickey and friends. Mini is so pretty isn't she.

Here's my husband Todd, Alexandra, my Daughter and myself the first day at the Magic Kingdom.

This was at Epcot at cartoon town I think.

On a sadder note when I got home and checked my e-mail I got some very sad news about a fellow stamper friend of mine. I want to post what I wrote in the splitcoaststamper forum.

Here's what I wrote:

Nancy is an avid Stamper. She is one of my upline Demonstrators. She hosts all our meetings and is so generous with everything. She always willing to help. She's been on a stampin up cruise and goes to the conventions and regionals alot. She loves making cards and I'm asking if it's in your heart to do, please send her a thinking of you card. I know it'll be a long time before she'll have a good smile on her face but I wanted to do something to make her feel good about herself. I know she'll be very honored to have the cards and display everything like she always does.

If you are interested please pm me for her address. Thank you in advance~
