November 25

It's Tuesday! 
The Tuesday before Turkey Day here in the US!
 Today I officially start to cook.
 Cooking a Thanksgiving meal is an event in itself. 
I cook for 3 days in 2 ovens, and we are done eating in less than 30 minutes. 
Sigh. 

But at some point, we will awake from our food comas, and realize we need entertainment!
 And there will probably be some pie left over to fuel us *oh I hope there's still pie!* 
 Now I have to say...and I mean this wholeheartedly... I. hate. black. friday.
  I do!  I totally do!!  
It gets earlier and earlier each year, and I think the fact that businesses are now open on Thanksgiving is just wrong. 

But, if I can stay in my jammies, and you can stay in your jammies, well...then lets give this a go!
 Let's make this extra super 'specially fun! 



I've been teasing for days about our 
Flurry of excitement.  
Any guesses as to what might be starting off this party?

Happy Saturday!

Behold...this beautiful card from Girl Friday Jingle!

She combined Wheat Wreath with Pinecones, and I think they look amazing together!
 I'm not even going to say much, I'm just going to let you look and enjoy :)

Happy Wednesday!

 Stamps. We all love our stamps, don't we? 
Did you know they are double sided? 
No, for reals...double sided! 
Girl Friday Marcie will show you exactly what I'm talking about
 with this fun and imaginative creation...

Squeal! Are you starting to see what I'm talking about? 
Using our Snowflake Greetings, she used the back side of the stamps to create that solid mask, then stamped the "proper" side in a different color over the top! 
This set is filled with darling snowflakes in a bunch of different styles and sizes 
so you'll be able to create your own snowfalls :) 

Have you marked your calendars yet to join us for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday weekend?  We'll be kicking it off with a Flurry of excitement that you won't want to miss!

Happy Monday! 

 Fabric. Embossing. What??? 

Check out this awesome creation from Girl Friday Angie...

She embossed the Amber Waves wheat in gold on fabric!
 Yes, you can do that! 
Then she die cut it using Shuffle Fri-Dies
I just love this!

Happy Thursday! 

*WARNING...this post might hurt your chin!!* 

Girl Friday Virginia has created 3 jaw droppers for you today!!
Each is truly spectacular. 
Here we go...

First, she got inky with our Snowflake Splendor and Must Love Snowflakes sets.

Oh wow! I love how she stacked all those great sentiment together. 
She embossed them in white on 110 lb watercolor paper, 
then applied Gelatos with water. Stunning!!
I really like that she stamped the little stars from that set in silver, and added a few splatters.

 Next she created this dreamy tag using our Must Love Snowflakes.
I love the wonderful colors from the distress inks.
This looks like a magical snowy evening! 
I think this would make an amazing bookmark to use while snuggling by the fire with a few good books this winter :)

 Lastly, she made this.

Thud!  Must Love Snowflakes in color.
Oh gosh, I love how she stamped a few small snowflakes on the Funky Round Tags and distressed the edges with ink. But the real showstopper is the big embossed snowflake on those pretty metal sheets from our friends at Add A Little Dazzle.
Can't you just imagine these tied onto packages under your tree?! Yummy!!

I don't know about you, but I am suddenly feeling the need...the need to get inky!!

Mark your calendars to join us for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday weekend!  We have a lot of fun in store for you :)

Happy Monday! 

I hope you all had a great weekend. 
Was it just me or did it totally fly by? 
Either way, the good news is that Girl Friday Deepti has a great project today 
 that will make waking up early on a Monday totally worth it :) 

Check out this awesome idea using our Funky Square Tag and Casual Vine Fri-Dies...


Aren't they dreamy?
She used an inlaid die cutting technique to create these beauties. 
I love how she colored the vine to match the pretty ribbons.
She used a simple sentiment from our Amber Waves stamp set, 
but you could easily substitute a for you, or happy birthday, or any kind of sentiment.


Have a super Monday!!

Happy Wednesday!

Raise your hand if you love our 4 Petal Fri-Dies.
Today, Girl Friday Kelly has created yet another reason for you to love that versatile little die!

I'll give you a moment to ooh and aah over her pretty project, 
then I'll tell ya about it ;)

So she used a whole lot of stamps from our Christmas Carols stamp set to create that pretty wreath.
You see bold colors mixed with embossed silver.
Totally yummy.
But do you notice that mottled and subtle green big flower behind the red?
Kelly used the 4 Petal Fri-Die to cut a flower out of cork.
 Then, she inked that up and used it as a stamp!
I love the wonderful textured look she got from that! 
She used the same technique to stamp the leafy border all around the edges.


She used the same technique on this little Funky Square Fri-Die Tag
You can really see the wonderful texture from the cork stamp. 
Loving that Christmas Carols sentiment embossed in gold.

Cork. Who woulda thunk it?
Have a super Wednesday!

Don't you just love the fun papers she chose for our fun sentiment to stand in front of?
It's darling, but wait! There's more!
Check this out...
It's interactive!!
The door pops open to reveal our little hiding ghost!
She placed a little bit of metal behind the sentiment,

so that the door holds itself shut! Awesome!

Oh my gosh, I just love this :)
