Occasions Mini 2012 Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek of the new Occasions Mini Catalog to be released Jan. 4! You're going to see this card in the catalog, and I made it for a demo at home to promote the catalog.

Mixed Patterns Color Trends Challenge

I created this card for Embellish Color Trends Challenge, whose theme is mixed patterns, and the colors to use are blue, brown, yellow, green and white.

I would also like to announce that I opened a new blog called Crazy about Magnolias, where I'll be posting cards using Magnolia stamps and other stamps and materials besides Stampin' UP! Hope you find that site inspiring and any comments or questions will be appreciated! With each card I create, I feel that not only do I improve a bit more, but that I also expand my passion for crafts, cards and everything that involves paper.

Hope you enjoy my card, and I wish you a happy new year full of blessings!

Wish you all well,

Learn, Live, Hope

I wanted to create a card for New Year's, but I couldn't find any stamp that I liked except for the one I used for this card, which is discontinued, but I think that it fits perfectly for the idea of New Year's. The stamp is called Sense of Time, and it matches with the designer paper.

This is my first time participating in the Freshly Made Sketches, and I combined this challenge with Pals Paper Art, whose theme is tags. Actually it was my friend Gisela's idea to combine the theme of the PPA and the Freshly Made Sketches. We were both playing around with the design and I came up with this card.

The designer series paper I used is another sneak peak of the Occasions Mini Catalog, which will be available on January 4th. I love this mini catalog full of new stamps, papers, framelits, edgelits, and much more! If you like to receive it, contact me and I'll be glad to mail it to you along with the Sale-A-Bration promotions.

I wish you a Happy New Year full of blessings!!

Wish you all well,

Merry Christmas to you all!!

Almost the end of the year! I'd be making Christmas cards for the rest of the new year. This is my favorite time of the year and I don't want it to end!

I created this card, which was inspired by a card I saw on the Card Ideas magazine. This week I've received the doily die, which will be available in the new Occasions Mini Catalog on January 4, 2012, and I wanted to use it desperately, it's soooo beautiful!!

I have to thank all of you who have followed me throughout the year, and for all the comments you left on my blog which have been so encouraging for me to create more cards. I hope everybody has a wonderful holiday season and a super duper happy new year with lots of blessings for all of you and your families!

God bless you all now and always!!

The theme at The Paper Players is a clean and simple color challenge...perfect for the holidays! This is truly my favorite time of the year!

I created the first card for a demo I did at home, and I got the inspiration for this challenge from that card. Hope you like it!

Have a wonderful holiday season everyone! Enjoy!
