Supplies: Dominos (you can often find cheap dominos at discount stores like Odd Lots or Family Dollar), re-inkers or ink pads with sponge daubers, Jet Black Staz-on, Stamps, rubber gloves (optional), embellishments like rhinestone brads, pin backing or magnet, Sanding Block or Rubbing Alcohol, Silver Leafing Pen, Spray Sealant, Ribbon, Mini Glue dots or Sticky Strip
1. Use sanding block or rubbing alcohol to sand away the glossy finish of the domino.
2. Put a small dot of re-inker at the top of your domino and rub it in with your gloved finger. You can vary the shading and even use two colors, if you wish. OR, use sponge daubers and ink pads.
3. Ink stamp with Staz-on and stamp on the domino.
4. Add color to line images with Sharpie Markers, if you wish.
5. Use a Silver Leafing Pen to cover edges of your domino. Allow to dry.
6. Spray with sealer. Allow to dry.
7. Take apart the rhinestone brad and adhere it to the domino with Tombow Multi-purpose Adhesive.
7. Adhere magnet or pin backing or turn into an ornament by adding ribbon along the edges with mini glue dots.
For the glitter tree pin----After I sealed the domino, I used Crystal Effects to add the glitter. Be sure to let the CE dry before you touch it!
On Board Trinkets Ornaments kit found in the Holiday Mini Catalog. This is a really fun and easy way to add some handmade ornaments to your tree. The kit contains chipboard pieces with matching perforated Designer Paper pieces. It makes over 40 ornaments. You can add some zip to them by adding glitter, ribbon, stamped images, etc.
Another easy way to decorate the chipboard pieces is to smoosh them into craft ink. You can then leave them be, or sprinkle some Iridescent Ice embossing powder for some sparkle. Find more ideas for decorating chipboard in this post from last year: Click Here!
Click here for additional ornament ideas. The chipboard pieces used in this post are retired, but you can find similar pieces in the On Board Something Seasonal pack found on page 180 in the current Fall/Winter Catalog.

4. Attach it to the cardstock circle with tape.
5. Adhere the Designer paper circle on top of the cardstock circle--right over top of the ribbon.

Here is the 5th card from my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. This is another card that I found while browsing other stamping blogs and forget who it belongs to! I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. I'm a pink-y girl, but don't have the opportunity to use it much while scrapbooking for a boy, so I'm loving these colors---Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, Pirouette Pink.
This is a great card to make as a Christmas Card because it is super simple and quick! Change up the colors for something more traditional.
The white layer is actually Shimmery White cardstock, which is just BEAUTIFUL in real life. It measures 2 1/2 x 5 1/2. The Kiwi Kiss layer is 2 3/4 x 5 1/2. Add some coordinating ribbon and you're good to go!
This year I am planning to do a version of these photo cards from last year, except I think I'm going to leave off the flap and have the greeting and signature on one layer. I'm not sure which stamp set and color scheme to use, but I'll be working on it very soon.
Now, if only it would snow . . .

I showed this project to my Big Shot club ladies the other night. It is my first star made with the 5 Point 3D star bigz die for the Big Shot. This was so easy to put together and looks so nice. I'm going to have to make a whole bunch of them to hang in my stamp room!
If you are considering the Big Shot die cutting machine, don't wait any longer! It is fantastic. I am amazed at everything it can do.
Paper: Ski Slope dp (Holiday Mini catalog), Riding Hood Red
Other: Big Shot--5 Point Star, Snowflake #2, clear rhinestone brad from Pretties kit, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon

I wanted to share this project that I finished yesterday. This is a shadow box with the Season of Thanks decor element on the front of the glass. The picture really doesn't show how awesome this looks! My twigs/leaves should be more toward the left so that they don't blend in so much with the words, but they moved. I plan on making a Christmas layout to put in the shadow box so that I can change it with the seasons. I'll share that once I get it finished. I now know what I plan on making for Christmas gifts!
If you've never seen the Decor Elements, be sure to find the link to the special brochure in my right hand column. I can't believe how easy they are to do. The Decor Elements is a line of Vinyl Art that designed for putting on your walls. It is a fast, quick, cheap way to add some decoration to your home.
The Season of Thanks decor elements is available in chocolate, olive, and black and in two sizes---Medium (20 1/2 x 13) and Small (12 x 7 5/8). I bought my shadow box from Michael's last week when they had them 40% off.
Supplies: Season of Thanks decor elements (small/chocolate), Autumn Vine designer paper (Holiday Mini), felt stitched ribbon (Holiday Mini)

This is a Thanksgiving Blessings holder--just like the poem says! I plan on making these for all of my family. Each year I will put them out along with paper and pens. I plan on keeping the previous years' papers inside so they can read what they were thankful for in the past. I can't decide if I want to put names on each of them so they always get their holder back or if I should pass them out randomly and let others read what was written the year before. Decisions, decisons! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment at the end of this post.
You can find a copy of the Blessings poem under Project Directions to the right. Just print it out on the cardstock of your choice. Cut each poem to 2 3/4" x 1 5/8". The next layer is 2 7/8 x 1 3/4". The Chocolate Chip layer is 3 x 1 7/8".
Get a totally different look by changing your designer paper! My first example uses the Autumn Vine Designer Paper found in the Holiday Mini catalog. The other example uses the Hawaii Papaya Designer Paper.
1. Start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock.
2. Score at 5 1/2".
3. Trim @1" off one end. Then score that shorter end at 1". Round the corners of this flap, if you wish.
4. Add a piece of designer paper to the front--4 1/4 x 3 1/2".
4. Fold back the flap and add adhesive to keep it shut.
5. Now, decide if you want to add ribbon along the sides or sticky strip.
6. If you are doing ribbon, punch 3 holes using the crop-a-dile on each side below the flap and a hole on each side on the flap.
8. Cut a 20" piece of ribbon. Insert ribbon from the back in the bottom holes. Do a "blanket" stitch along both sides. Tie ends across flap into a knot. If you wish to have a bow on front, you will need to make your ribbon longer.
You can always change the size of your blessings holder. The directions I found were 5" wide, but I wanted to maximize the number I could get per sheet, so I changed it.
There will be a 20 - 50% discount on select product bundles. I don't know what the bundles are and probably won't find out until the 26th, but I bet they will be fabulous!
There will be limited quantities of the bundles, so be sure to check in early and order your bundle right away. You can go to my website to order your bundle and any other products you wish.
Anyone placing an order of $35 or more (before shipping and tax) on my website from November 26 to December 1 will be entered into a drawing for a $10 gift certificate from me (or choose $20 in Stampin' Bucks)! I will randomly draw a name from all who place a qualifying order.
Anyone placing an order of $150 or more (before shipping and tax) will receive $10 in Stampin' Bucks, not to mention the regular Hostess benefits and entry into the drawing!
Stampin' Bucks are coupons that are good towards any used/retired merchandise I have. Check out the link at the top right for a list of available retired stamp sets.
So, be sure to check back here early on the 26th for all the details and get ready to place your order!

Last year, I attached gift cards to giant Hershey bars for my brother, brother in-law, and little cousins. This year I bought a really cool skull mug from Target for my cousin's son. I will put a gift card and some candy in it for him.
Stamps: Floral Background
Paper: Lavender Lace
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: big flower from Pretties kit (sponged with ink), half back pearl from Pretties kit, gold brad (behind pearl to hold flower to box), Word Window Box, Small cello bag, Elegant Eggplant ribbon), Scallop edge punch
This box is my favorite! It uses the Top Note die from our Big Shot collection. The top notes are attached to a small paper bag that was cut to 2 1/2". This bag is similar to my Smores Kit bag (find directions here), except that the bag was a 3# bag instead of a lunch size sack. I buy my bags in bulk from Gordon Food Services, but you can find similar sized bags at various craft places.
Stamps: Dreams du Jours (butterfly), Embrace Life, On Your Birthday
Paper: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Whisper White
Ink: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss, Basic Black
Accessories: Top Note die, 3 # paper bag, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches, Scallop Circle Punch, White Tafetta Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Wide Oval punch

What you need:
5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Chocolate Chip cardstock
2 x 1 1/2" Black cardstock
3 x 1/2" Black cardstock
Paper cutter with scoring blade
3/4" circle punch--punch 2 White, 1 Chocolate Chip
1/2" circle punch--punch 2 Back
Small oval punch--punch 1 More Mustard
5 petal flower punch--punch 1 Real Red
You can find directions for making the 2-4-6-8 Box by clicking here. This is a great box to know how to do--you can make all kinds of treat boxes--change the size of your beginning sheet and you can make various sized boxes.
Once you make the box, just use the punched out pieces and black hat pieces to make your turkey face. I cut the Chocolate Chip circle in half for eyelids and punched them up with dimensionals. The waddle is made by snipping off a petal from the 5-petal flower. Although, looking at this picture, his waddle should be pointing more towards the bottom!

Oh, I was so excited to finish this layout! This was my swap for my club girls this month. The idea came to me in the shower and I was so excited with how it turned out. The designer paper is from the Holiday Mini. I had to make two different color layouts because I only had a few sheets of the Tangerine Tango. I can't decide which one I like best--Brocade Blue or Tangerine Tango?
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks---small circle stamp for eyes
Inks: Basic Black
Cardstock: Tangerine Tango (Ballet Blue), Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue
Other: Big Shot Scallop Circle die, Scallop Circle #2 die, Serif Essentials dies, Kiwi Kiss grosgrain ribbon, Earth Elements buttons, Crimper (carrot nose), Boho Blossoms punch, Mini Glue Dots

As I was going through my computer files, I came across a picture of this Halloween scrapbook page that I did for a swap with my clubs in September.

Say hello to my new nephew, Taylor! Isn't he adorable?! He was born November 5. He weighed 9 lbs 15 oz and was 23 inches long! What a little chunk. I am absolutely in love with baby Taylor and can't wait to see him again.
Okay, now back to stamping!
Last month for Club, I planned something a little different for my ladies. Instead of having a layout for them to copy, I gave them a Scrap Map. This is a "map" that gives a basic layout idea. Scrap Maps are great for helping get your creativity flowing and for getting you to scrap out of your box--using a layout idea that you may not normally use.
I showed them my pages created from the Scrap Map, let them choose from some of my retired designer paper and let them loose. I made two samples--a Fall themed one and an adorable girly layout that I don't get to do very often. I'll upload the Fall one later--I'm going to put pictures on it first. I gave the girly layout to my friend Jennifer. Here are some samples from a few of the ladies. There are actually 8 in the club, but two were missing and I didn't think to take pictures until the rest were gone!
You can find additional Scrap Map ideas at www.scrap-maps.com
