So that means it's time for this month's Keeping Christmas blog hop! ~ ~ This month I decided to use a color combo that is definitely not a standard Christmas combo, based on a diagonally striped/dotted patterned paper that I had in my stash. And here is my card: ~ ~ All of the stamps and dies are from Rubbernecker Stamps and together they worked perfectly together for this holiday card. I... Continue reading

~ Hello and welcome to the July 2019 edition of the Keeping Christmas blog hop! ~ ~ Each month we create a Christmas card, building our own stash and hopefully inspiring you to do the same. I don't know about you, but when it comes to Christmas cards, I want to be able to produce multiples all at one time. So each month this year I'm trying to create a simple (but hopefully great) design so when Christmas time rolls around, I'll already have my design chosen and ready to produce! This month I pulled out my WPlus9 Winter Woodland... Continue reading

~ Hi, all! I'm back today with another preview of one of the new sets from Power Poppy's new Enchanted Garden collection. This one is called Summer Berries. All of these sets will be available in the Power Poppy store on July 1st. Here is Marcy's comment about this set: Both classic and new illustrations are featured in this summer-centric clear stamp set. A tumbling vine of ripe raspberries makes for the juiciest of focal points, while a sweet bird among strawberry stems is a gentle image you can color up in minutes. A strawberry cluster can be both a... Continue reading
