I want to start by saying THANKS!! I appreciate all the positive feedback I received on yesterdays post 😀 Truly made my day. I will certainly provide instructions soon. I had all I could do to get it posted! LOL! So I am happy you all liked it so much. 

Today Amy R is having her 2nd release for C.C. Designs. She is releasing 3 sets-Build a Holiday, Christmas Sentiments, and Christmas Card Verses, You can purchase them on the 27th (depending when you read this-today!)

Wait until you see all you get with these sets. I really think they sell themselves. Plus the price is right 😀 Lots of great holiday sentiments for the outside and inside of your cards.

I have been struck HARD with the flu, so I only got 4 samples done, and they are LATE :C I should have had these for you to preview Friday, but at least I got them done in time for the release TODAY!!

I hope you like my take on Amy’s sets!

My photos aren’t the best. Like I said Im feeling horrible so I did the best I could do.


First up will be the Build a Holiday, and the sentiment “Let is Snow” from the Christmas Sentiments set.

I used Amy’s new sentiment set to create a pretty patterned paper.

I stamped the “let it snow” sentiment, on glossy cardstock in versamark ink. Let dry, then sponged on my fave colors for non-traditional Christmas/winter colors-pink, Caribbean, and lavender. Its a very subtle look but I LOVE it! I felt like this made the PRETTIEST patterned paper!


I then used Amy’s new build a holiday set- to build my snowman. Stamped on a shimmery white cardstock. His/her head fits perfectly in a 1 inch circle punch. The middle is the 1 1/4 punch, and the bottom is 1 3/8 punch! So it came together in under a minute. I used some pretty fun fibers for my scarf.

The tag uses a new sticky paper by Scor-Pal! Note: I didn’t see it listed yet, so Ill keep you posted on that! I punched the snowflake/circle from the tape, adhered it to my circle layer, and added glitter! Perfect embellishment.

OK moving on……………

Seems like you may only see HOLIDAY building with the Build a Holiday set. Well that isn’t true 😀


I see  a PARTY!!

Instead of a TREE, I saw a party hat! I just stamped my American Crafts paper, and cut it out, and made a curly topper. I did the same with the gift image.

I think its SUPER DEE DUPER cute!

The FUNNEST part of this is that the sentiment is from the Christmas Card Verses set! I just colored only portion of the sentiment that I wanted, as I felt it was perfect for a birthday card too 😀



Ok so YOU see little ornament toppers, and hangers, I see tulips, and stems!!

My favorite flower, made in seconds 😀

Isn’t that cute? I wanted a quick card. I love single layer cards that take NO TIME at all, when you need to just pop a hello in the mail. Goodness knows I need to make MORE of those.

Plus I was feeling YUCK and just needed to get the idea out of my head!

I made the sentiment around the flowers usingJustRite Stampers small letters set. One of my all time favorite sentiments.

Now one last one before I head to bed.


Peakcock Pattern

This one was made by layering Amy’s petal shapes, within eachother, making a pattern like a peacock feather. This was also inspired by Vera Bradley’s Peacock pattern bags! Its just a super quick and cute card.

I used another JustRite Stampers set for my sentiment. Harmony Classic Oval I set. I just bought a bunch of stuff and need to actually USE it 😀 I LOVE sentiments, and think you can never have too many! Happy everything is perfect for that “anytime you need a card” sentiment.

OK I am now done for today. I need to get some rest. I hope I can get a Flu shot soon, so I don’t get this again.

 Take care of yourself.

Tomorrow I will post my “daily” routine, as many of you have asked how I get stuff done 😀
