Aloha, all! Well, I can truthfully say that, when it comes to sending out Christmas cards, I am definitely ready for Christmas. They all went in the mail yesterday, and everyone should receive theirs before the new year (hey, it's progress from last year!). But I did take pictures of them so you can see what I did to make my last-minute rush a little bit … [Read more...] about It’s Christmas Eve! Are You Ready?
Aloha, all! It's very hard for me to browse a magazine rack and not pick up the latest issue of everything stamping and scrapbooking.

There's a snowflake right here in this blog post as there was in yesterday's post. Today I'm showing off the other side of the snowflake ornament on which I started working yesterday. And, yes, there are Little Felt Flurries (113697) on this side, … [Read more...] about A Trip to the Other Side (of the Snowflake!)
Aloha, all! The computer in Robin's Craft Room is back up and running! Hooray!! But having no access to a computer for a few days gave me more time to play with all my fun Stampin' Up! Christmas "stuff." I'm still playing with the materials from the Country Living Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit (114447 if you'd like to order it online). And my favorites … [Read more...] about Time for Christmas Ornaments!

This time I set … [Read more...] about Felt Flurry Fun Finale!!
Like yesterday's Christmas Card, today's uses the Little Felt Flurries from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog. Today, though, I really added the embellishments big time! For starters, I used the lovely background paper from the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper pack, accented with some Riding Hood Red card stock. On top of that, I layered some Baja Breeze 1" Double-Stitched … [Read more...] about Further Felt Flurry Fun!
