It's a Wrap Holidays Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and all the East Coasters are staying safe!

I have one little card to share that I made for my Stampin' Up! upline, Jackie Ross. She's a wonderful career demo who was #9 Demonstrator of the Year last year! SU asked her to model a sample workshop at the Charlotte and Las Vegas regionals, so a few weeks ago, a few of her downline gathered at her house to make some samples for her to show during her presentation. What a fun day it was! I wish I could have gone to one of the events to see in her action, she truly is amazing!

I used the new It's a Wrap Holidays stamp set that will be in the new Holiday Mini catalog available September 1st. (You could do something very similar with the new It's a Wrap stamp set in the main catalog.) It's designed to stamp on labels to wrap around little Hershey's nuggets. I wanted to show another way to use the stamps, so I tried to make a ribbon/medallion thing.

I also used my favorite thing in the new holiday mini, jumbo buttons! They are called Spice Cake designer buttons, and they are SO cute! They come in Pool Party, More Mustard, Soft Suede, and Pear Pizazz. There are more cute buttons too, some decorative ones called Holly Berry Bouquet. Love, love!

On a non-stamping note, I survived my first week back to school, and I LOVE my class! I know we are going to have a great year! I'm trying not to panic thinking about getting them ready for the Texas STAAR test in spring, which is new and harder, but we'll get there. I wish the heat would let up on us, we had to have indoor recess all week, but they were super awesome. I spent the week without air-conditioning in the car, which was NOT super awesome!! Groan! But dh took it in today and got it fixed, schwooo!

Thanks so much for stopping by and (hopefully) not forgetting about me during my intermittent absences! Hugs and happy stamping!

Super card. considering that you have used Christmas-y images and papers, it does not have a strong holiday feel.

That card is soo cute! Great use of this new stamp set :)

I can't believe your weather is so hot that the kids have to spend recess indoors... Not good for the teacher when the kids can't enjoy running their little legs off to let off steam for a while... I hope they're not too fidgety the rest of the day!
