Have you visited Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack? I just checked and the sweet little houses are still there for only $2.39 each. I've really enjoyed decorating them this year with Emma and I'm seriously considering ordering a few more to tuck away for next year. For now, I'll share this year's fabulous creations:

Have I mentioned that I love the look of Shabby-Chic? I think I am going to make it my stamping goal to be better at creating in this style for 2013. I just love the softness of the look, with surprise pops of bright color. While I decorate in traditional colors of red and green for the holidays, my daughter has chosen to decorate (at least for this year) her home in more neutral colors. This is her first holiday in her own apartment and I think these will look great on her tree!

here at Splitcoast Stampers. I created this 7 x 7 box using a piece of 11 7/8" x 11 7/8" Cherry Cobbler Card Stock for the base, and a piece of 12x12 Candlelight DSP. Both the top and the bottom are scored at 2 1/2". With all the rush of getting ready for the upcoming holidays I know that writing and photographing a tutorial is a little more than I can handle today, but hope the measurements and attached link would be helpful. Thanks for stopping by today, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I have always said that one extra week between Thanksgiving and Christmas would be so welcome! It's hard to believe the holiday is less than 2 weeks away. I haven't even finished making our Christmas Cards yet - I sure hope I can get them in the mail in time! Never mind all the baking, shopping and wrapping left to do!I have put the baking on hold since Emma and I have been sick for no less than 3 weeks - I hope we have a healthy holiday this year! Tonight I am meeting with my Stamp A Stack Card Club for our last 2012 meeting. I find that I am continually amazed by some of the shabby chic projects I find online, but I am never truly satisfied with my own attempts to re-create what I see. This morning I dug into my stash to find some old papers that might fit the bill, and went to work designing a couple of cards for my Stamp A Stack Club that meets tonight.
