About Me

I've been paper crafting for about 20 years. In October 2007 I joined Stampin' Up! as an independent demonstrator. I have found that I truly love stamping, more than any other craft I've tried...and I've tried them all. I'm a SAHM of 4 and I also direct a parents' day out program. Both of these "jobs" give me plenty of opportunities to pull out my stamps and inks and have a ball! I've been married to my wonderful hubby for 21 years. He gets gold stars for supporting paper crafting/stamping addictions. :)

Christmas Craft #1

Since the pep rally was this morning, I had time this afternoon to post my first Christmas Craft. It's a Christmas Wish List holder.

Here's the supply list and instructions. Remember it's easy to change colors or stamps to create your own version of this cute craft.


Holiday Line up Stamp Set
Pick a Petal Stamp Set
Holiday Blitz Stamp Set
Seeing Spots Stamp Set
Totally Tab Stamp Set
5 ½ x 8 ½ Kiwi Kiss cardstock
3 x 5 ½ Patterned paper
3 x 3 ½ Riding Hood Red cardstock
3 ¼ x 2 ¾ Kiwi Kiss cardstock
3 x 3 ½ Whisper White
2 Silver Brads
10” Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon
Kiwi Kiss Classic Stamp Pad
Riding Hood Red Classic Stamp Pad
Night of Navy Classic Stamp Pad
Yo-Yo Yellow Classic Stamp Pad
Round Tab Punch
Blender Pens
Snail Adhesive


Score 5 ½ x 8 ½ Kiwi Kiss cardstock at 3 ½, fold on score line to create a pocket. Using the Crop-A-Dile, punch a hole and insert the silver brads to keep the pocket intact.

Stamp a tab using the Totally Tab stamp set and punch out with the Round Tab punch. Adhere the tab to the far right side of the pocket flap.

Adhere the 3 x 5 ½ patterned paper (I stamped my own patterned paper on Whisper White cardstock using the Seeing Spots and Pick a Petal stamp sets) to the flap of the pocket.

Using the Holiday Line Up stamp set, stamp the image on the 3 x 3 ½ Whisper White cardstock and color using the Classic Stamp pads and Blender Pen. Stamp the snowflakes from Holiday Blitz stamp set in Night of Navy.

Adhere stamped image to 3 ¼ x 2 ¾ Kiwi Kiss cardstock and double mat with 3 x 3 ½ Riding Hood Red cardstock.

Adhere matted image to the patterned paper centering the image.

Using the snowflake from Holiday Blitz, randomly stamp on the upper back portion of the pocket (see picture).

Punch two holes using the Crop-A-Dile and insert ribbon for hanging.

Have your child or other family members and friends write down gift ideas on slips of paper and place in pocket of wish list holder.

See you next time...where the ink dries...
