My Christmas Projects

I have two very big Christmas projects planned for next December. The first one will be a Card Organizer that will hold a minimum of 24 cards each....10 times 240...easy peasy, right?

The second one will be a Recipe Carousel that I first saw at Two Peas in a Bucket - both seem a little intimidating...however, I think I'll be ok :o)

So what kind of cards will I be putting in my Card Organizer??? The very best part of putting this Organizer together is that no one I will be giving it to cares if the stamps are "current" or not - and I think that's why I'm so excited about it!! I can make whatever I want! GASP - I can even mix stamp companies!!!! OMG - How liberating is that for a Stampin' Up Demonstrator?!?!?!?

I love this stamp set. It came out last year in the Spanish Catalog for SU! and I fell in love with this rose! I was following a layout challenge and used my Nestabilities to cut and emboss my circle.

When it comes to making white cards...and I do so love them...they look so clean!! - I get rather snobby about this...if you don't use Paper Trey Ink's 110 lb cardstock or Gina K's 120 lb cardstock you need to find a different color to work with. I LOVE SU! cardstock...but whisper white is great for card layer and especially stamping...but never a white card base...JMHO :o)

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Flores suaves, Best Yet
Paper: White from PaperTrey, Regal Rose and Old Olive from SU!
Ink: Regal Rose, Old Olive SU!
Accessories: Spellbinders Circles
