This was the card I created and recently mailed out to those in my Stampers With ART Community. I decided to make this year’s holiday card with products that would still be available after the August-December catalog ends January 4. Although it was super tempting to use any number of those mini catalog products, I didn’t for two reasons: I wanted to send them each a card with supplies that would stay current in case they wanted to use this card as inspiration for (or at) any of their future customer events AND I loved the sentiments in the stamp set I used – A Wish For Everything. I really think the New Year’s sentiment is extra special this year since we are all ready to put 2020 behind us.

I made my 2020 team holiday cards with the Forever Greenery Designer Paper, leaf clusters from the Wreath Builder Dies, and sentiment images from A Wish For Everything Stamp Set. Then I made a similar layout with a Valentine theme using the Flower and Field Designer Paper, images from the Hearts & Kisses Stamp Set, and hearts punched with the coordinating Kiss Punch to show how you can adapt a layout you like to other products you have (or may want to get!).

I also used some Forever Greenery Designer Paper, leaf clusters from the Wreath Builder Dies, Real Red Satin Ribbon, and some Red Rhinestones for berries near my leaves.

Then two days ago I made a similar card with the same layout but with a Valentine theme. I used new products from the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure: the Flower and Field Designer Paper, images from the Hearts & Kisses Stamp Set, hearts punched with the coordinating Kiss Punch, the non-metallic side of the Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon, and some Basic Rhinestones to show how you can adapt a layout you like to other products you have (or may want to get!)

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Like most, we celebrated our 2020 Christmas without gathering in person with friends or family. We did a lot of shopping online. And we baked too many cookies and treats. Here is just a fraction of what we have in our house. (Ignore the messy counter.)

Christmas 2020. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But we made it special in other ways. On the 21st we drove around to nearby houses to see amazing Christmas light displays. The photos below show two houses that were “must sees” with lights synced to music that you tune in and listen to on the radio. Both houses collected donations that they in turn gave to local charitable organizations.

Then on the 23rd we had a winter storm that brought a ton of snow. I got my wish…a white Christmas! So we spent the morning of Christmas Eve all out there as a family shoveling our driveway & sidewalk and de-icing the car. Tim was pleased we were out there helping. And I loved the exercise. I’m proud to say I lasted longer than my boys. It was still cold and windy and one didn’t want to wear a hat and mess up his hair and the other wanted to wear a special jacket that was way too thin.

We had a fabulous seafood dinner that evening with Lobster, Scallops and Crab Legs. No one touched the rice and green beans except me. There was just too much seafood. We Zoomed with my side of the family. And then we watched one of our favorite movies, the Polar Express.

Santa still visits, because we all believe (the bell still rings for us). So I had to take a photo of our tree before opening gifts Christmas morning.

It was a very relaxing day (with naps and no planned meals…just grazing on left overs). And then that evening, on Christmas Day night we drove to the fairgrounds to see GLOW and have fair food – all from the safety of our vehicle. (It was a drive through event.)

We had also planned to go sledding (something Luke really wanted to do), but it has been super cold. We’ll see if we can squeeze that in today. 

Blessings to you all and wishes for a safe and very Happy New Year!
