Happy New Year!

Are you getting ready to ring in the new year? I am having company tonight for New Year’s Eve so I am busy cleaning and cooking. I thought I would stop in with a quick New Year hostess gift idea and New Year card idea before the holiday weekend. I wont see you again until Monday, I am taking the weekend off with my family. Please, come back Monday for more sneak peeks from the Amuse Studio January Collection! Have a very happy and safe new year! Cheers to you!

Meal Plan Stamp Set
Meal Plan Stamp Set is perfect for cards and will keep you on track in your 2016 planner. Don’t you love the Crystal Clear Glaze on the bottle and what about those little bubbles!?

Happy New Year! Be sure to visit again on the 4th for more peeks from the A Muse January Collection!

A Muse Studio January Collection is nearly here! I am SO excited about the newest release from A Muse Studio. This preview card for today showcases A Muse Studio’s new Scallop Heart Die Set. The hearts in this set are truly the perfect size for all your papercrafting projects. The scallop heart is 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ and the plain heart is 2 1/4″ x 2″. Here I stamped our Haunted Mansion background stamp on the Apple heart in Cherry ink to give it a subtle and beautiful texture. The sentiment and the arrow image are included in the brand new From the Heart stamp set. Marshmallow Splash! ink is the perfect finishing touch. From the Heart and the Scallop Heart Die Set will be available beginning January 1st.

It’s time to get real honest, we love our family and know they mean well when they give us those sweaters and knick-knacks. The food gifts just end up on our butts and bellies, so the Ab Blaster just makes sense, right? I am sure that the vacuum, mixer, and steam mop are not reviews of, or comments on, our domestic skills. Those gift givers mean well, but those gifts are going to gather dust.

Right now, it’s time to treat yourself!

A Muse Studio Santa Was Here

A Muse Santa Was Here
Ever have a stamp set just grow on you? That is totally the way it’s been for me with A Muse Studio Santa Was Here. This card is on loan from my upline, and long time friend, Chris Franco. When I saw this card I knew I needed to share the Santa Was Here inspiration.
A Muse Studio Santa Was Here
When I first saw Santa Was Here from A Muse Studio, I kinda thought “eh”. I liked the unusual, sometimes sassy sentiments but I was all hanged up on the little images. I just really wasn’t in love. Then I used Santa Was Here to make a couple of tutorials my 12 Days of Christmas tutorial series. Now can you see the possibilities?!

Oh my LOVE! The more I see done with the Make It Happen stamp set from A Muse Studio the more I LOVE! Maybe you are like me and considering a fancy crafty planner like the ones that are so popular right now. Maybe if I made a crafty, stampy planner I would get more done…
…I don’t know, I have never been good at planners BUT I never crafted my planner before.
