December 25th Swap

 Rounding out my swaps for the Stampin' Up Regional Event, I decided to use these gorgeous ornaments from the Holiday Ornaments Framelits set, and the Window Frames Collection Framelits dies.  I used the paper piercer and the Festive Paper Piercing pack, to create the holes around the Windows Frames.  I had to add the lovely polka dot designer paper as a banner.  Hope you like it!  ~Hoppy Crafting!

Daydream Medallions Swap!

 I'm SO excited to attend my first Stampin' Up Regional Event, soon!  In preparation, I'm feverishly cutting and assembling my swaps.  I came up with this gorgeous "flower" idea, using the set Daydream Medallions and the Floral Frames Framelits.  I'm using Lucky Limeade, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, and Basic Gray, along with a piece of designer paper from International Bazaar.  I have distressed the Lucky Limeade layer, and used the Scallop Trim Border punch on the Basic Black.  Hope you enjoy!  ~Hoppy Crafting!

Seems like I've been making a lot of these types of cards lately, and getting more requests for ideas for Sympathy cards.  I guess it's a fact of life, but loss is always so hard.  Stampin' Up needs more sympathy-type sentiments.  I pulled these images from retired sets "Thanks for Caring" and "Forever Young" I also used the extra-large Oval punch from SU for the sentiment. ~Hoppy Crafting!
