Shake It Up!!

Hiya Friends & Happy Wednesday to ya!!  Is your week going by fast like mine or are you just aching for the weekend to get here, hee hee?  I'm working in my craft room all day today to get my projects finished up for the week and to finish my Christmas cards---eek, gotta get them out in the mail tomorrow!  I swear December 1st comes and all of sudden, you blink and December 24th is here & you're STILL NOT finished with everything, LOL--at least it's that way for me every year!  Last night I had a lil' wine & cocktail party for a few of my best buddies and it was nice to just take a break from everything, eat some yummy food and chat for a bit!  And now the crazies set in today---my to do list before Friday: laundry, packing, mailing, wrapping, driving, working, cooking & possibly some sleep thrown in there somewhere, LOL!  So I'll get on with my post for today so you can go get your crazies out too :o)


-Starting in January/February I will be offering Copic Classes online---yes, you heard me correctly, hee hee!  It will be done by a very hightech videocam I got for my laptop & I can have 6 people at a time---you will see and hear me and everything I do & I can see & hear you!  It should be fun!  Once I have it set up & tried out, I will put a schedule up but I will probably do 2 classes a month by computer & 1 "LIVE" in my home class a month  :o)

-Today is the 4th Day of Christmas over at 7 Kids College Fund and today's special is 15% OFF ALL CUTTLEBUG ITEMS!!  Go HERE to see the fabulous selection!!  Use Coupon Code XMASDAY4--only good for today though!!

Lockhart Notecards & Shaker Tags

Today I've got a fun project for you today using some of my fave Lockhart Stamp Co. Itty Bitty stamps!  I created a fun set of 3 notecards and 3 matching tags that are shaker tags! The tags could be re-used or put on the tree for Christmas--fun to give & recieve.  All of the patterned paper is by SU and my images are colored with Copics.  I kept the layout simple, simple embossing on the white (different with each card) and a fun touch like stickles or snow added.  Quick & easy to make up and a fun set to give!  The tags are made with my Nestabilities shapes (the circles fit the sweet cups perfectly) and SU's "sweet treat cups"(order them HERE for only $2.95 for 12)--I've been wanting to use these for awhile now!

Frosty mitten notecard set---isn't it fun & so wintry, perfect for the holidays or just a hello/birthday card in the winter!  This set uses the Lockhart Stamp "IB Mittens" and inside the shaker box I added MS snow glitter & some blue tinsel glitter as well.  I used my nestability shapes to create the circles and a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.  The SU sweet treat cups come in packs of 12 & already have adhesive on them--just peel the paper layer off & adhere!

This set uses the Lockhart Stamp "Daisy Cupcake" and I added yellow & pink Doodlebug glitter to the shaker tag!  Some stickles on the cupcake and my Swiss Dots CB embossing folder (on sale here)!  I purposefully left off sentiments from these cards so they could be used for many occasions.

This set uses the Lockhart Stamp "IB Cape Cod House"--perfect for a new neighbor, new home or just a hello card. I added some fun green MS microbeads to the shaker tag and used my Textile Texture CB folder (on sale here) for the background.  I love that lil' mini house and I added some stickles to the house & around the circle!!  These Itty Bitty stamps are so fun to use & quick and easy to color up!

On the back of each shaker tag I stamped the To/From sentiment using my PTI "Holiday Tags" set!  You could whip up a batch of these in a flash I tell ya!

Hope you enjoyed my projects today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop for ya--we're featuring Pop-Up Cards!!

  8. Hi Suzanne! These are adorable! I did a similar project with my MS Punch-around-the page snowflake punches and stamped a Just-Rite snowflake in the middle, filled it with Flower Soft "snow" and added the sentiment ring on the outside. I made them to give out at the staff brunch I hosted. I'll have to post them cause they really turned out cute. Those sweet treat cups are fun. Your projects are great! Hope you get some sleep. Hugs,
