Getting back into the groove

I finally got my stamp on this weekend. I was at a stampin up stamping event and made a lot of cute cards and projects! I see some ideas to carry over to Christmas...
Last night I got some shocking news about a very dear friend, so to let her know I am thinking about her and here for her, I made this for her.

December was a good month

Every month my upline Jill offers all her downline who have a $500 month, a special gift... And this is what she gave a few of us. It's pretty awesome I think :) and a nice reward.

Questions? Here are the Answers
Why is Stampin' Up! offering Paper Pumpkin?
Paper Pumpkin is the perfect introduction to Stampin' Up! It's designed for crafters that want to create a project each month, but aren't quite ready to build a stamp collection (yet).

How does shipping work with Paper Pumpkin?
Your Paper Pumpkin will be automatically shipped to you each month (so fun!). Because SU! is auto shipping these, the pricing structure is slightly different from other Stampin' Up! products.

Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month you are sent a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, d├ęcor, and more! (Everthing is color-coordinated, measured, and cut for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories - everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • SU! will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (If you sign up on May 10th, your kit will be sent around May 15th. If you sign up May 11th, your first kit will be sent around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)  
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, SU! is offering a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
So don't forget to visit my Online Store at http://crazypenguindesigns to order your Welcome Kit.

Tea time birthday

One of my friends asked me to make a couple birthday cards with a tea cup theme that she could choose one for her friend. I made both of these...and she couldn't choose one. She took them both!

A New Year....

well one "resolution" I would like to keep is...being more up to date on my blogging.  I have been quite busy but haven't had time to post things...

I'll start with a gift I made for my boyfriend.  He's a real Mr Fix-It.  Also, he's hard to shop for lol.  But I knew he'd love this....

I didn't have this stamp set, but a few friends online sent me some stamped images so I could make this.

All stampin up:
Card stock: Crumb Cake, whisper white, basic black

brads: mini and silver

tools were coloured in or water coloured.

here is the work bench gift card holder open showing the gift card.

My boyfriend absolutely loved it!

Just seeing his smile Christmas morning, and he knew my time and heart went into it...was well worth it!

thanks for looking, and I'll be back with more... :)

2013...let's get our Creativity on!
