Also, the December Best of 25 stamp set has been released.  It's the last one of the series, so if you're trying to complete a punch card to get your free set, this is the last one they are making, but the stamp sets will still be available through March 31, 2014.  This month's stamp set is Best of Sale-A-Bration.  Sale-A-Bration starts January 28th, 2014, and if you've never heard of it, let me tell you how it works:  for ever $50 you purchase of Stampin' Up! product, you can choose any single item from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration catalog for free.  You can stack the free items if you spend more than $50.  For example, if you spent $150, you choose 3 free items from their catalog.  It's a great deal, and stamp sets that are offered in the Sale-A-Bration catalog are only available during Sale-A-Bration months and cannot be purchased, you have to earn them with a $50 purchase.  With that being said, Stampin' Up! has put together a Best of set featuring poplar Sale-A-Bration stamps from the past that you can purchase in a set.  Click here to view this month's stamp set.

And last but not least, here's my project to share for the day:
This is an ornament I've made with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits (#127816 $24.95).  These framelits coordinate with the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (#128048 Wood $34.95, #128051 Clear $25.95) and are still available.  You can order them in my online store here.  I chose to cut the ornament out in a sheet of Gumball Green Designer Series Paper, but whether you use patterned paper or stamp the image, it looks great.  I really love this set and think it's something that you can use year after year on your holiday cards, scrapbooks, projects and art with kids, because you aren't limited to colors and designs with these framelits and coordinating stamps.  You can use them year after year and change up patterns and colors to match whatever is trending at the time.  I love these!  They're also great because there are 9 stamps and 8 framelits, giving you lots of choices for your creations, and these make great gifts when you make them.  People are wowed by them and they're not hard to make.  An inexpensive gift idea!  They can also be used to decorate packages and handmade jar gifts too.  They're great for just about anything!  A great deal and worth every penny!  Later on in the month, I'll show you a larger, more detailed/ornate ornament I made last year with the set.  It's absolutely beautiful.  I also have a smaller ornament I made last year and will show that too, once I take a picture of it.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll see you tomorrow!
