Happy New Year All!

It's been a great year and I'm back in full swing with Stampin' Up!  I've really missed stamping (and scramping).  I've missed being able to see and play with new product before it's released, having classes, and seeing friends on a more regular basis. Crazy as it sounds, I actually missed the sometimes last minute, frantic rush to get projects done in time for class! There's nothing like a time crunch to get the creative juices flowing.

A few weeks ago I had my Second Annual Cookie Exchange.  I always have a special make-n-take and give each friend a little bag full of goodies.  But, the highlight of the day is the eating.  After a round of appetizers, we eat COOKIES.  Lots of cookies.  They were fabulous.  Ron and I ate every last one (3 dozen). I'm still on a sugar high.

So let's get to the make-n-take.  I love these miniature cups and can't seem to find enough ways to use them.  They are the perfect size for treat-giving.  The cup holder is a breeze to make using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I'd be happy to share the directions with you. 


  And the matching goody bag:

Both the treat holder and goody bag were made with the Festival of Trees stamp (#135059) and coordinating Tree Punch (#135859).  Other supplies include Frosted Sequins (#135835), All is Calm specialty designer paper (#135823), and, of course, bling!  If you're interested in purchasing any of these items, you need to hurry - the Holiday Catalog ends January 5.

I'm gearing up for Spring and will post a class schedule soon!  Don't forget that SALE-A-BRATION and ordering from the Spring Catalog begins January 6.  Let me know if you need these catalogs.  They are fabulous!  You'll get an awesome free product for every $50 you spend.

I hope every one of you have a New Year full of love and happiness!
