I have way too many favorites for this new Stampin Up Holiday Catalog but decided to go with the new Halloween line since I’ve been doing so much Christmas lately. The new digital subway art (Toxic Framable Digital Designer Template) is soooo cool and I can’t wait to display it in my home and will probably make another for my office at work! I also chose to use the new set Googly Ghouls and the adhesive backed googlie eyes. The dsp is cute and has my favorite pattern, chevrons, so I am hooked. It’s called Howlstooth & Scaringbone. The striped ribbon is really beautiful also. Hope you enjoy!!!

This is a quick little peek at a new Halloween Set and designer series paper set coming in the Holiday Catalog which will be available August 1. I used Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, Googly Ghouls and the new cotton ribbon which I stamped on. That ribbon is an awesome blank canvas that I can see so many creative uses for.

I LOVE First Christmas and couldn't wait to play with the new tulle. I also used the Window Frame Collection framelits, Candlelight Christmas dsp, cherry cobbler coredinations cs, antique brads and the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. I’m about 95% sure this is the card I’m going to use as our family card this Christmas. I may have to rethink it a little, the tulle wasn’t exactly easy to wrap around those brads and the brads may it really have also. All the new Holiday Stampin Up product will be available to purchase August 1 via my website www.debrasingletary.stampinup.net or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to order directly from me. TFL!!

I love, love, love this technique (even though it took me three tries to get it right ) by Dawn Olchefske from this youtube by her. I used the NEW Ornament Keepsakes and Festival of Prints designer series paper which will be available August 1 in the new Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I also used cherry cobbler seam binding, and the following inks: lucky limeade, island indigo, and cherry cobbler. I am still working on Christmas items and will be attempting to make my version of the gorgeous 3d ornament on the front of the holiday mini and also a new card set with a beautiful stamp of baby Jesus in the manger. It will be my own personal family card that gets set out this year.

l have been in awe of my box of new goodies since I got it yesterday and couldn’t wait to break into it and play, especially with this new Friendship Preserves Bundle. The bundle contains a stamp set and the matching framelits. I also picked up the new piercing templates to match. This thank you card was made with the bundle, island indigo cardstock and ink, the designer series paper is from the new 4.5”x6.5” stack called Festival of Prints and the antique brads from the main cattie. Enjoy!
I HOPE this set makes it to the big cattie next year, I'm in LOVE with it already :) Friendship Preserves bundle, early espresso ink/ribbon, indigo island cs, elegant blooms embossing folder. (the bag is the pretzel bag from wilton and candy is chocolate twizzlers)

The mason jar tote is actually a drink holder from McDonald’s that I’ve been holding onto forever because I knew I wanted to do something with it, just couldn’t figure out what! I am going to fill the 2 jars up with candy and enclose a gift card in the card. I used Petite Pairs, Make a Cake, and Summer Silhouettes along with Summer Smooches designer series paper, inks are real red and island indigo.

Ok, I admit it. I’m a kid at Christmas. I love it, all the lights and candles and beautiful decorations, the feeling of family togetherness, the worshipping our Lord’s birth. It is always such a joyous time for me and my little family. I always make my Christmas cards, whether they are done with traditional supplies or digitally I want to send my loved ones cards that I’ve made so they will know I care about them enough to personally make theirs. I also usually wait until the last minute LOL. This year I’ve got a jump on it though and want to share a few things I’ve been working on.
This first card is made using Snow Much Fun and I attempted watercoloring with an aquapainter and SU inks.
This box was cut using my beloved Cameo and the stamp set is For the Birds, dsp is Be of Good Cheer
This cute little box was also cut with the Cameo and I used Open Sleigh which my fav Christmas set from the big catty this year. I also used Be of Good Cheer dsp.
I hope to have lots more lovely Christmas things made over the next few weeks and hope you enjoy these!
I have (unfortunately) needed way too many sympathy cards lately and decided the lovely Love and Sympathy set and Trust God set would make a beautiful boxed gift. Comfort Café designer series paper was the perfect complement also. The box was cut using my Cameo.

I had the most fun making this card, I’ve been wanting to try out doing glitter in the sweet treat cups for awhile and finally got some in my starter order and this is what I came up with. Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Notably Ornate, DSP: Patio Party, cs: primrose petals, ink: primrose petals, all SU. Other items are various bits and pieces from my stash.

So, about this time last year I decided that I would sign up with CTMH and try to teach a few card and scrapbooking classes from time to time. Maybe earn a few free products and give what little profits I made to benefit Falcon’s Children Home which is my church conference’s orphanage/foster home. I did manage to make a few dollars to send them, but with a full college schedule and 3 beautiful children I never did get the chance to teach any classes. Soooo, fast forward to this summer, fresh off the end of this year’s Relay for Life for which I am our school’s team leader and very active in raising funds from January to May of each year. I decided to try one more time at signing on with a stamping company but chose to go with Stampin Up. Although I am totally in love with CTMH’s stamps, I really feel like SU has a better variety of on-trend colors and accessories. Plus it is more widely known and will make it easier to attract people to some classes and workshops. I received my starter kit on Monday and have been playing some (VBS has been keeping me busy). I made five cards and promptly uploaded them to facebook in a new photo album as cards for sale. I am going to be selling cards for $3 or 2/$5 with ALL profits going to benefit Falcon’s Children Home. I am pretty sure that I’m going to list all cards in an etsy shop also, but have to get that up and running. I am in the process of planning a Christmas in July christmas card workshop also. I will be turning over all the money I collect to my mama, our Women’s Ministry President to give when our church presents it’s yearly donation in November for Falcon Children’s Home Harvest Train.
I truly hope and pray that I can make this work. I have a personal goal of raising $500 to send to these kids this November. My heart hurts for them. Although I was raised by wonderful, loving, Christian parents, I have a daughter whose father has abandoned her. She is too young to realize it, but she will one day and I hope she realizes how truly blessed she is to have a mama that can take care of her. I want to foster in her and my other children the importance of helping those less fortunate than us by using whatever talents that God has given us.
My new website to order products can be found at http://debrasingletary.stampinup.net
I will have a link to the etsy store up soon, hopefully by tomorrow. Thanks so much for your support! Much love - Debra

So this is part of my week one assignment, I still have to do the journalling pages which I will not be showing on here, just because it's so highly personal. I hope you enjoy checking these out and will consider signing up next go around.
