Weekly Deals - January 27, 2015 through February 2, 2015

Hello Crafters,

Hope you are having a terrific day!  It is bright and sunny here.  Looks like we are going to have warmer weather for this week.  Prayers for all my friends and family in the northeast as they deal with the snow. 

This week impressions are the name of the game ... namely Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  There are six featured in the weekly deals.  Now is the time to pick up a new embossing folder.  I am really excited because I have had several of these on my wish list for a while.  Here's to lasting impressions this week.

A Light unto my feet ...

Hello Crafters,

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have posted here on my blog.  The activities of Christmas, New Year's and getting back into the ebb and flow of the everyday routine again has taken quite a bit of my time lately. 

I have started a new journal that combines art and the memorization of scripture.  My friend MayMay has started a Facebook group for this purpose.  You can find it HERE.  It is a closed group, but you can ask to join.  Here is a pic of my first page.
Here is the list of the supplies I used:
Composition Notebook
Zig Memory System Pure Black Calligraphy pen
Zig Memory System Chocolate Writer pen
Stampin' Up! Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad
Stampin' Up! 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers (Baked Brown Sugar)
Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set (Wood or Clear Mount)

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Leave a comment that you were here.  I do enjoy hearing form you.

Blessings and Happy Crafting,
Belinda

Snowflake Joy

Joy, joy, joy!!!  I love working with snowflake stamps, paper, embellishments, ribbon … it goes on and on.  I love the look of snow, but don’t like the cold or the results of snow turning into ice unless it is in a beverage or keeping a watermelon cold during the summer.  But, I do love my snowpeople collection, my glass/crystal snowflake ornaments and icicles.  Nothing says Christmas like icicles on a tree and a beautiful nativity.  Well, on to the card.  I had a lot of fun with this one.


BTW, I got the large snowflake brad from Office Depot about five years ago in the $1 bin.  I bought five packages and they have 20/package … what a steal!

Stamp sets:  Endless Wishes and 2014 November Paper Pumpkin-Simply Snowflake
Misc:  Circles Collection Framelits, Frosted Sequins, Season of Style Designer Washi Tape (vintage), Stampin’ Dimensionals and Snowflake brad

Blessings in Blackberry Bliss

Hello Crafters,


The wonderful blessing of our Savior’s birth is the reason for this season of Christmas.  I love the stamp used for this card because it is the depiction of the birth of our Savior. 

Although this picture seems a little ‘cloudy’, it sparkles abundantly in person.  This is the first time that I have used Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  It took me three tries to get it just right.  I am so pleased with the effect.


Stamp sets:  Wonderful Blessings (retired)
Misc:  Circles Collection Framelits, Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Cuttlebug Organic Flourish Embossing Folder
