How Do You Organize Your Glimmer Paper, or Paper Stacks?

As the year comes to an end, I always find myself purging, cleaning and looking for better ways to organize. I usually leave my Designer papers in the plastic wrap it comes in, but with the Glimmer paper that doesn't quite work. So here is what I came up with:
I like to keep all the Glimmer Paper together, Red, Silver and Champagne.

This is how I store my dsp. You can see the clear folder on top. Stampin' Up! used to sell these clear folders. I have a bunch of them collecting dust.

These folders also work great for the Paper Stacks and keeping all the scraps together.

Its hard to photograph these clear folders, but you can see the paper stacks here.
Weekly Deals good through Monday, December 30th. 
Please use hostess code: J237YEA4 when placing an online order. If I get enough orders I will give away the hostess benefits ($25). You can find all of these items in my Online Store HERE! Also, I have an extra package (never been opened) of the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit. I will randomly pick one person who places an order to receive this kit. 
Orders must be placed by December 31st, 8am Pacific time.

Christmas Angel, Weekly Deals and Clearance Rack

Here is another sneak peak from the Occasions Catalog (you can order on January 3rd). Demos can pre-order the month before a catalog goes live, (a perk for becoming a member). You saw my other Angels HERE!, now check out these babies!
Can you see some new products? Vellum with Gold stripes, (and big dots, hearts). This paper also comes in Silver. With matching Baker's Twine. Gold and Silver. Now, check out that flower. That would be our new Spiral Flower Die.....squeal! I so wish we had these products in the Holiday Catalog. These angels went on some super special goodie packages.

I added a Pearl to the inside of the flower. Gold Baker's Twine is behind the flower. Forgot to mention, I used the Gift Bow die. This die WILL NOT be going forward. You have until January 2nd to get any of the products you wanted from the Holiday Catalog.
Weekly Deals good through Monday, December 30th.
More items added, save up to 80% on some. When there gone, there gone.......

Snowman Candy Jars

I found these jars on Make it and Love it blog HERE! They are so cute with our retired fabric that was in the Clearance Rack a while back. This is a great easy project.
I bought a case of pint Mason Jars at Walmart. They were under $10. Made the eyes with black cardstock. Purchased 1 orange felt square, and did the mouth with a black sharpie. I die cut a 2 1/2" circle and used the circle to draw the mouth. Check out the website and she has a tutorial. 


Thank you to Patty Bennett for the ribbon. Can you believe I had NO Real Red Ribbon........ I think these would also be cute as "pumpkins for Halloween. Just change the face and fabric.

Candy Cane Christmas Fabric.
My life has been so busy these past couple of weeks. Once the holidays are over, things will go back to normal (whatever normal is.....). 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! Safe travels for those of you traveling.

Yarn Scarfs

I have been so busy this week, I've hardly had time to post. 

Today I wanted to show you these beautiful scarves. I happened upon this yarn by Red Heart called Boutique Swerve, at JoAnn's.
Here is the label.


These are the directions. (Click on the photo to see it better). Took me less than 5 minutes to make each one.  I LOVE making these scarves.

This one is for Gianna. Its variegated, so pretty in person.


This one is for Jocelyn. Bright Pink.

This one I took one Black and one Grey skein and put them together.


These Extra Large Boxes are perfect to put the scarves in, and they are on sale for $2.96 for three, in the Weekly Deals. Until Monday evening, 12-23-13.

I stamped each box with White Craft Ink and used the Endless Wishes Photopolymer stamp set (sold out, sorry). I had purchased the tulle in the Clearance Rack a couple of months ago. Added one of my Snowman Tags and call it done! So what do you think?

Snowman Tags

Don't Snowmen just make you smile? I know they do me. I was on Becky Robert's blog a couple days ago and she had the cutest tags. Well it turns out they were from Mercedes Weber. Seems her 7 year old daughter designed these Snowman to earn some extra money to buy her sisters some Christmas gifts and to give to charity. She is charging $1.50, so worth it!
Can you believe Cami is only 7 years old? Sign her up! Ok, so her Mom helped a little bit.

But seriously, these tags are exactly what I needed for my little goodies. And I had some of the Festive Finishes Embellishments that would be perfect for the scarf.

I made the little "Kisses" Trees. I did these last year and they were a big hit. My husband took a bunch to work and they wanted them again. Those Gusseted Bags were on the Clearance Rack (sadly they are all sold out) and perfect for these little gifts.

All I did was add a little shreds (from the Dollar Store) to the bag and then added my trees. Topped it off with a little bow. This photo just doesn't do it justice..... Of course I forgot to take a photo of the trees, but you can see the ones I did last year HERE!

New Products! Spoiler Alert!

So, are you finishing up all your Christmas cards, and gifts? I'm almost done, but honestly I needed a break from anything Christmas. I received my pre-order for the new Occasions catalog that goes live on January 3rd and couldn't wait to try some of the new products. Being able to pre-order is a "perk" of being a demonstrator. So I will be able to show you the finished product and the name of the product, but can't show the actually item per Stampin' Up! Rules.
My Niece Emily's Birthday is on Monday, so this is what I sent her with a gift card inside.

That is the insert so I could wish her a Happy Birthday. So can you see all of the new products?

1. Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper
2. Retro Fresh Washi Tape
3. Oh Happy Day Stamp Set and matching Framelits (you can save 15% if you buy the bundle)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of these new products. 

If you've purchased from me in the past 6 months you should be receiving your copy of the Occasions Catalog any time now. If you don't get yours by January 1st, contact me, I will be happy to mail one to you, (as long as you don't already have a demo).
