As you all know November is the time to gear up for Christmas shopping with so many sales and crowds. We have some great deals for your Holiday Shopping needs.

 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Winter Scenes"

Today we are featuring "Amaryllis Definition" stamp set.

Here is my project using this new stamp set!

This card was patterned after a card my good friend, Mary, made. I changed just a little of the details here and there, but basically, it's like the card she made.
  • A2 size POSTCARD 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Black card base
  • Dotted mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Black mat cut @ 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  • Yellow mat cut @ 3 3/8" x 4 5/8" and dry embossed with Honeycomb folder
  • Black strip cut @ 1 1/8" x 3 3/8"
  • Flower mat cut @ 1" x 3 3/8"
  • TEDDY BEAR PARADE for Honey Bear cut @ 3 1/2" and adhered with foam squares for dimension
  • Blue baker's twine used for accents (Thanks, Theresa!)
  • Buttons, glitter, and rhinestones added for embellishments
  • MFPS "Amaryllis Definition" for sentiment stamp

Here's another project I made using this stamp set:

Tom, Bonnie, and I went to the mountains for a weekend in March of this year (2012) and stayed in a cabin. It rained almost the entire time. To say it rained more than it didn't rain is not exaggerating. BUT we still had a good time like we always do, because everything is an adventure.  This was the weekend Tom took the MENSA test... and he passed way above what was needed by the way. (I always knew he was brilliant, and you guys just thought I was saying that because he's my hubbub.)

I love the "Remember..." stamp in MFPS "Amaryllis Definition" set being released this week. It could be used for military pages, family vacations, important events, life-changing moments, etc. 

  •  12" x 12" scrapbook layout
  • CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY Corners p. 50 cut @ 2 1/2" (Thanks, Lucy!)
  • CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY Arrow p. 61 cut @ 1 1/2" (Thanks, Lucy!)
  • ELEGANT EDGES Brackets Border p. 25 cut @ 1 1/2"
  • CAMPIN' CRITTERS Owl p. 36 cut @ 4" with Shadow feature and adhered with Action Wobble. Pink & Green buttons added all around here and there. (Thanks, Theresa!)
