Merry Christmas to All
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2015
‘Twas the week before Christmas
and all through the store,
Customers were finding
Yes! All Christmas dies, stamps and papers are marked down 40%! Stop in and see the wonderful selection. I will be marking down other items too so make a date to come in and see what's on sale -- don't miss the bargains!
I am happy to tell you that I finished the 2 books I was working on plus completed 6 calendars; mailed dozens and dozens of cards; sewed 6 plush felt stocking gift card holders and snowman ornaments; and wrapped dozens of Christmas presents! Whew! It’s been busy around here.
Let me share with you a few pages from each book:
For my niece Emilee, who will graduate Texas A&M veterinary school in May, I made a book to document her travels around the world this year completing externships.
Jennifer, her sister, is a cat lover so her book is all about her cats, Scout and Skye.
The plush felt stocking gift card holders and snowman ornaments are made with Memory Box dies. I love to hand stitch and since the die punches the holes it’s a snap to put them together. I added jingle bells and a tiny tag with the recipient’s name. My friend Deb told me she made a stocking from animal print paper and I had to copy her idea for Emilee’s stocking!
Remember The Stamp Act will be closed Thursday, December 24 through Monday, January 11. We will re-open Tuesday, January 12.
Customer Christmas Cards -- Thank You!
It is always so exciting for me to see customers' cards. Above left is a card by Carol McGahhey. The card is even more spectacular in person as the gold foil paper is notoriously hard to photograph. On the right is a handsome reindeer by Harriet Head from Las Cruces. Thanks for sharing!
