Happy December

Hello, dear friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and long weekend! Is it really December?! Only two and a half weeks until I start working! Were you able to snag a few deals this past weekend?! I definitely did and am excited about happy mail even though I’ll be so busy with work soon — just couldn’t pass up on some steals. If you share what you got, maybe I’ll share my haul (it’s A LOT). 😉

I know a lot of people are doing their holiday shopping online. I added my affiliate links in Disclosure, so if you need to shop from Amazon or get craft items for your crafting buddies, I’d love for you to use the links. 🙂 I currently have a Honey Bee Stamps – sponsored giveaway on my Instagram.

I’m giving away a cute shaker card that  I made and Melissa is giving away Beautiful Life (currently sold out but available for pre-order). Ironically, it is also the same stamp set I recently lost. How does one lose a whole stamp set? It’s driving me crazy, but I hope I find it soon!

Speaking of deals, if you’ve been meaning to get  your hands on some Essentials by Ellen from Ellen Hutson, all those stamps and dies are currently 25% off (and an additional 10% if you use one of the coupons from their designers or a frequent shopper coupon code e-mailed in a newsletter). That’s up to 35% off!

I was able to get my hands on a few things. Here are some of my favorites and I can’t wait to use them! Expect some holiday cards in the making. 😀

So if you haven’t seen on social media yet, but The Ton has a release next week. In the next few days, you’ll see some sneak peeks.
We have some pretty fabulous stamps and dies, and now we’re releasing ink pads! Join us next Monday and Tuesday for projects featuring the release (and maybe some giveaways). 🙂 Although I’ll be busy with DT work and holiday cards for friends, I am trying to find time to also just play with new stamps and dies. I finally inked up Altenew’s Beautiful Day for their last challenge (their link-up closed before the deadline so I couldn’t enter). It’s a little different from what I normally do:

FullSizeRender (7) FullSizeRender (5) Those leaves are gorgeous! I stamped them on vellum and fussy cut them. I hope you like it! Thank you for everything. I love every comment left! Wish I had more time to visit everyone’s blogs and respond to each comments. I hope you know you’re appreciated!  Thank you for visiting and for all the love! ?

Interested in the products I used? To make them easy for you to find, I have listed them below. (Affiliate disclosure can be found here). Your purchases help me to run my blog. Thank you!

    You make the most amazing cards, those Ton stamps look amazing. I am sorry you’ve lost that Honeybee stamp set and I hope it appears soon. That is so frustrating because you know it HAS to be somewhere! I did some crafty shopping myself although I truly couldn’t afford it.

    I lost my t-ruler in a move and ordered a new one (can’t draw a straight line either) . Of course I eventually found the “missing” one and now I have two. I would be happy to gift you one if it would help.

    This is so sweet!! And oh my, a whole stamp set?!…I’m still missing a single little stamp that I cannot find anywhere!! It’s been over a week or so and I’m thinking to just buy a whole new set because it’s driving me THAT crazy! LOL 😉 Hope you find your set! Happy Friday! 🙂

    Lovely card. I hope you find your stamp set soon. I somehow lost a T ruler. No clue what happened to it. I have everything else that was in the package. I can’t find that ruler anywhere.. heh (real shame, because I can’t draw a straight line to save my life) ♥♥♥

    This year I am proud of myself. Even though there were a lot of temptation, I stood up against it and only made one small order of craft supplies. Although there were a lot of orders in non craft stores 😉
    Cannot wait to see what you create with new goodies.
    Your card is awesome! Iove how you made leaves, they look magical.

    Oh no…an entire stamp set lost? I’ve managed to lose a single die or most of an alpha set (found the alpha set, haven’t found the die)…it’s probably ‘stuck’ on something…LOL.

    Such a pretty card, love the tag and your awesome stamping! Great colors!
