Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps - New!

Hi Everyone! Above is my first batch of cookies made with Stampin' UP!'s new Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps 125152 !  and of course I HAD to taste several of them!! YUMMY so tasty :) So buttery and goes perfect with a cup of coffee or tea!

VID01388The Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps come with a high quality wooden handle and 3 interchangable silicone images. The stamps are dish-washer safe and the handle can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

The cookie stamp set comes with 2 recipes: A sugar cookie VID01389 which I made today and a shortbread cookie which I got to taste at convention.

What a unique gift for the baker on your holiday list! Also a great way to spend some time with the kids on a fun and tasty project.

Watch my video tutorial on how easy they are to use and

Happy Crafting! ~Dee

November Card Class - Embossing For the Holidays!

Hi Everyone! November's Card Class will be ALL about showcasing embossed images. We will also use Mocha Morning Specialty Paper to accent 3 of our cards. This paper is so rich! Class includes a Stampin' Emboss Powder of your choice.


Embossing is a way of really putting  a WOW element into your projects. I know all will enjoy creating these beautiful cards to send this season.


It's been a crazy week which is why I haven't posted. FINALLY my new window treatments are being installed today and why is it we will clean for strangers but not ourselves ? LOL Also my FT job is super busy right now.

Dasher Card with Dazzling Details and Jingle Bell


Hi Everyone! For our October Team swaps, I said " Your favorite stamp swap card." I am LATE with getting mine to the gals and it was lots harder than I thought! I find I have many 'favorites'. With Christmas here before we know it, I decided to use my favorite holiday stamp. DSCN1120Dasher and Delightful Decoration stamps are dear to me because I can remember being so excited when I got them. They were on my wish lists for a long time. So I decided to use Dasher.

DSCN1122His antlers beg for some Dazzling Details glitter glue as well as a festive Mini Jingle Bell.

I have to run...but will be back to post how to make later tonight.
