Out with the Old, In with the New RemARKable Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me today for this RemARKable Blog Hop mixing and matching “Old” product with brand new product available January 4.


While I am a little sad thinking about all the amazing stuff that will soon be un-orderable from the Holiday Catalog, I am just, if not more excited about the new and fantastic items that will greet us in the new Occasions catalog.  And, just in time for Sale-a-bration!!!  That means, starting on January 4, with every $50 in orders we get to choose a Sale-A-Bration item for FREE.  And, who doesn’t love free?

Anywho…on to the card.  The inspiration from this card came to me from thinking about what’s coming ahead super soon, a new year!  I thought this card would be perfect to send to those who you weren’t fortunate enough to visit this Christmas or maybe even as a thank you to those that you did see OR to someone who bought you a super fabulous present!


The golds and shimmer in this card remind me of New Year’s celebrations!  The background paper and the doily underneath the greeting box is from the Falling in Love Suite in the Occasions Catalog 2017.  Just beautiful!  And the frilly pines and bow are oldies but goodies from the Pines bundle in the Holiday 2016 catalog.

So, this is my OLD meets NEW!  I think they’re getting along just fine! 🙂  Thanks for visiting.  And, your journey shouldn’t end here.  There’s plenty more blog fun to be had on the RemARKable’s Old Meets New Blog Hop.  Check out Katarina’s post at: Katarina’s Blog Post.

Joyfully Yours,



Last Minute Christmas Tags – SU! Style

I know this is totally not you…frantically searching for some style while you gift wrap.  But, just in case you have a friend or a cousin who is looking for a cute tag to add to the top of that gift, at the last minute, I have a cute idea for you!


I love the neutral-ness of this tag that allows you to bring whatever colors into it that you wish.  If you want to bring some red, bring on the red.  If you like a little green, go for it.  Or if you’re like me and just like the neutrals, it is so perfectly beautiful just as is.

I’m also loving the fact that through January 3, this stamp Set, the Tin of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set is on sale for $16.80. I know it shows $21 below, but if you click on it, it will take you to the correct link and price!

All you have to do to prep for this project is to cut Whisper White Thick cardstock in strips of 2″ x 4 1/4″.  Then, using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, shown below, you can punch the ends of your strips into tags!  Perfect and so simple.  No adhesive needed!

So sorry for the picture being on its side, but it kind of matches my crazy Christmas-season-panicked house right now, so I hope you enjoy! haha

Joyfully Yours,


I Love You Snow Much Winter Card

We are so close to Christmas now, that I’m anticipating most of you have already made and sent out any Christmas cards you were planning to send and are DONE with Christmas cards for this year!  So I decided to bring to you today a winter card made using the Mountain Adventure Stamp Set.  I think this might be an overlooked stamp set in the Holiday Occasions Catalog, but oh so cute!

I hope you all have a super Merry Christmas and enjoy spending some quality time with your family and maybe squeeze in some crafting time, too!  A girl can dream, right???

Don’t forget that the Year-End Closeouts are still going strong and there are so many fantastic offers to take advantage of.  Use my link: Megan’s Stampin’ Up Link  and click on Shop Now.  Please use hostess code: JYEAZM3K at checkout.

Joyfully Yours,
