Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to You!

The last couple of days were busy ones!  Had to take a little time to celebrate the New Year and to of course watch the ROSE BOWL and my Michigan State SPARTANS come through with a victory!  Yeah baby!  S Go State!  Go Green, Go White, Fight Fight Fight!!!

A day spent taking down and putting away the indoor decorations and the ornaments off the tree.  It's always sad a bit to see it go but now there is a clean slate (well, bare anyway) to decorate for the new year!  I like to get it done early in January because I'd hate to still have Christmas up when I get home from the annual Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference - this year it's in Houston.

And on the final note of good news, I spent the morning yesterday with the girls at the dentist (yeah, no cavities but Rachel does need her Wisdom teeth out sooner rather than later) and that was followed up by a visit to the oral surgeon that did Nicole's jaw surgery 1.5 years ago -- whit whew, it looks like her joints and everything are completely healed!!

Okay, now for why you are really here!  You want to see the rest of the projects from Sheryl's workshop!  They asked if they could see the Envelope Punch Board used for a non envelope project! So we did two things with it, but really there are so many ideas out there!!  I already taught a class on it last fall and could easily teach another with even more ideas!

One of the projects is making this cute little bow with the board & we just finished it off by adding it to the ready to go Decorative Window Gift Box and adding a tag - with their choice of either NEW tag topper punches -- new punches from the Occasions Mini Catalog which you can order from starting today!

And our second project was to make one of the ever popular File Folder Cards!  I need to redo the picture to show it closed so you can see both portions of the File Folder Tabs.  We used the Chevron Border Punch, new Gold Sequin Trim, new Starburst Sayings Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits!) and the new Fresh Prints Paper Stack of really yummy papers!!  Love, seriously Love, this color combo from the paper pack - coastal cabana, real red, crumb cake, whisper white!  And there's a bit of Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon too!

This card idea was inspired by Amy O'Neil.  Thanks Amy!  I just changed it up and made it into a File Folder Card!

Hope you have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!  See you again soon!  I will be sharing my team swap cards for the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog next!  :)  Might have to mix in a few Valentine's cards from our Dec meeting too since I can't recall if I every shared those with you or not!

Guess I better get busy and take pictures in the daylight!!
