Friday Friends with Flair!!!!

This time, I took a bag I got from the Dallas Flea from this great organization for women and dressed it up with my friend's gift inside.  The snowflake is from Ippity "Gingham Christmas Greetings."

Then I added a tag I made also using "Gingham Christmas Greetings."  I love making gift bags.  They are so much prettier than the ones at the store, dont you think?

Happy weekend and maybe I will finish my Christmas shopping, finally:-)

Get your Ippity here!!!!!!!!!!

FWF - ATU-44 Dollar Store Makeover with Ippity

Hooray, it is finally Friday!!!!
Anyway, I loved All Things Unity's newest challenge - the Dollar Store Makeover. I got a clipboard and decided to alter it as a Christmas gift for someone who has things taped up on the hutch near her computer - I thought she could use this clipboard as a nice decoration and a place to put all her sticky notes...all the stamps on this project are by Ippity!

It is just possible that this is my favorite tag that I have ever made!

Have a great weekend and get your Ippity here!!

ippity thanks(giving) blog hop
Hello and welcome to the thanks(giving) blog hop with a few {ippity} chicks!!  Thanksgiving is a great time of usually marks the beginning of the holiday season.  it's also a time to think about all we are thankful for.  What a great time to have a blog hop centered around giving thanks and thanksgiving!

I have a few great "thank you" projects.  Ippity has so many fabulous sentiments...the first two cards use stamps from "Regal Greetings," my own favorite among all my favorites:-)  The first card also uses the fabulous vintage postcard stamp "Thoughts from the Past."

The second card - again - I used "Regal Greetings."  I love the chandelier and the script of the sentoments in this set.

And, lastly, the amazing "Thankful for You."  I love the dragonflies and the sentiment.  And, this paper is fantastic!

I just love it!

Here we go again, another Monday:-(    I made a few cards this weekend, including this one for the CCO6 challenge at  I used a fabulous Authentique Christmas paper pack and one stamp - a tree from Ippity's "Gingham Christmas Greetings."  I love this set. Well, I love all the Ippity Christmas sets as you will see in the next few weeks.

Don't forget to come back Friday for Friends with Flair, and Saturday for the Ippity Thanksgiving Blog Hop.

Finally Friday and FWF!!!!!!!!!!

Whew, another week is coming to a close!  And, the holidays are right around the corner.  No stress!

I just started making a few Christmas cards with my Ippity stamps.  (I have all of these sets available to ship right now.)

The first adorable little guy is from the new release, Pain and Pride, and is just $6.00!!!!!!  He even comes with three sentiments.  He is fabulous for those who like to color.  I'm not very good at it but even I could make him adorable:--)

Next is my favorite snowman (frm "Kissmas & Misteltoe) - he is always perfect for embossing!  I used my first piece of sticky back canvas to make the label (the stamps from "Season of Joy") and the adorable "NOEL" sentiment is from "Gingham Christmas Greetings."

And, again from "Season of Joy," the label is one of the stamps in the set that coordinates with Nestabilities - the snowflake and the sentiment are also from the same set.  Love this!

And, then we have a sentiment from "Season of Joy" paired with a flower from "Now and Always."  It is so versatile and looks kind of snowflake-y, no?

I got all these fantastic papers from Crafty Steals last week.  Love them!!!

Have a great weekend and get your Ippity here!!

Here is a card I did a while back for World Card Making Day.  I used stamps from a kit of the month along with some Coredination cardstock that I sanded to make the words stand out.  I love that butterfly ribbon with a little twine wrapped around it, too!

[ippity] Christmas in October Blog Hop

Welcome to the {ippity} Christmas in October Blog Hop.
If you are coming from Jennie's Blog you’re on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning go to Heather’s blog. I also have a list of the participating blogs at the end of this post.

I made items from all three fabulous Ippity Christmas sets - first up are some items from "Gingham Christmas Greetings."  I stamped the tree on a onesie - my first attempt at stamping on a knit fabrics - I added some liquid pearls for dimension.  Then, I die cut a tree and stamped some snowflakes for a fun effect and put one of the great gingham sentiments on there.  Then, a tag, using snowflakes, sentiments, and the music background on the gift card holder.  So pretty in real life!

This stamp set is a bargain at $18.00 and if you buy it with any other set through midnight October 17, I will give you a 10% refund on your purchase.

Here are a few cards from "Kissmas & Mistletoe,"  love that snowman!!

And, of course, "Season of Joy," has great shapes that coordinate with spellbinders and great sentiments.

The only problem here is picking your favorite Ippity Christmas set!  Why choose when you can get them all here:-)??
