Leadership Swaps

Here are my swaps from Leadership this year. They are quite simple to make! Do you recognize the DSP? It is actually an MDS download! It is part of the More Amore collection, but only the MDS version has thisprint, and another exclusive print, in it. This download is Item #130674 and it is $4.95.

The circles are popped up and 3-D. The top photo has red glimmer paper in it, and the bottom one has red and white polka dot from Summer Smooches DSP.

Christmas Thank Yous!

It’s time for some Christmas thank yous around here! These elf shoes sure have made the rounds this year! How about some MINI ones? Each shoe measures only 3/4″ across!

This card is just a front (no fold, it’s more like a post card). All I have to do is add my thank you note!

The instructions for these are shown below.

Supply List:
Curly Label Punch, Small Oval Punch (retired), Owl Punch, Post it Note Paper

  • Punch a Curly Label out of desired cardstock
  • Cut into 1/4ths
  • Use a post it note so you can manuever the tiny piece easier while punching
  • Place the cardstock into the small oval punch. I stuck it in there about 1/4″
  • The next photo (#4) shows what it looks like after it’s punched
  • Next punch out a small piece using the owl punch as shown
  • I stuck the cardstock in about 1/8″
  • To make the red glimmer paper balls at the end of the elf feet, use the same sized circle that you just used from the owl punch (the circle above the owl body on the punch)
  • The stockings are 1/4″ wide striped DSP (Be of Good Cheer)

Merry Christmas From the Heilings!

Our family wishes you a


(I’m not sure why it looks so fuzzy on here but if you click on the picture it is much clearer!)

Here’s one more fun project for you, totally cased by the one and only Becky Roberts!!

In our family, we play games on Christmas and have dollar gifts for prizes. I thought it would be fun to add one of the Naughty or Nice Chalkboard tags to the lump of coal (chocolate) for one of the prizes. This tag was a FREE download offered by Stampin’ Up last month. You can still get it FREE HERE.

More Holiday Projects

I thougth I better hurry up and post more holiday projects before Christmas is here and gone! Here are some projects that I made this month.

This one was inspired by Dawn Olchefse’s card that was posted HERE. Did I mention I LOVE her ideas? She’s one creative gal! (I love that she’s from MN, too! We have the same MINNESOTA ACCENT! LOL)

This was my Control Freak’s swap card. The bird has a little tab on the bottom and is tucked under the “ice rink”. The bird stands up and is 3D. The circle is embossed with the folder Elegant Lines and simulates the ice skate marks from the skates.

This tag has the shimmer mist sprayed all over, which the camera does not pick up.

More Holiday Projects

Here are some more projects from my Stamp Club this month! This is a card made to look like a Christmas oven. When you open the door, you will see the treat inside!

Do you want to join stamp club and make fun projects like this too? You can be local or out of town! Click HERE for details!


I love making fun treats for my classes! Here are some Arizona snowmen! I saw this idea all over Pinterest!

The Grinch Treat Pouch

These little treats were so fun to make! I found a tutorial by Beth Rush on how to make The Grinch face HERE. She has easy to follow instructions on her blog. THANKS BETH!

I made the pouch using the larger tag on the Two Tagz Bigz Die. The pouch is made by cutting a 3″ x 9″ piece of cardstock, and scoring the long side in half a 4 1/2″. Fold the cardstock in half, and place this on the die. Place the fold about 1/8″ above the cutting line at the bottom of the tag.

Paper: Old Olive, Early Espresson, Naturals Ivory

weSTAMP Christmas Party

We had our weSTAMP Christmas party this week. WOW what a way to end the year! Here is a photo of the gals who could make it to the party. What a wonderful, creative group of ladies! (Click on photo to see a close up)

The gal behind the scenes (who did A LOT of work to make our Make and Take come together) is Janice Clegg. She spent COUNTLESS HOURS CUTTING and prepping for this event. I sat and figured how many of those ornament kits she prepped. There is no way I could have done this without her help!!! JANICE THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!

Our Make and Take was the infamous ornament that was featured on the front of our Holiday catalog. The gals enjoyed making them and I think they were so happy to go home with a completed project that evening!

Did you know now you can make this ornament, but without the work of stamping and cutting? Stampin’ Up offers KITS on these now! One kit will make 10 ornaments. You can order from my SU website HERE, or contact me. Item # 132832
