Hello, my stamping friend!

I hope that if you celebrated Christmas, that it was all you had hoped.  I know that it can be a difficult time of year, and we often get stressed trying to make everything ‘perfect’.   That’s why this year, I decided to not cook the traditional turkey – because I always get so stressed that it’s not cooked enough; that the stuffing will be dry; there’s not enough gravy – so I cooked a wonderful roast beef dinner, with all the same trimmings, except the stuffing! (cause you know, that would just be weird!  stuffing with roast beef? well, maybe…next time!)

So we had family with us to celebrate, and I was much more relaxed, and enjoyed the meal 🙂   I hope that’s how your day turned out, as well.

So now, here we are, staring down the calendar to the end of 2016!   They say that nothing is more constant than change; and one of the big changes coming up with Stampin’ Up! of course is the end of the Holiday catalogue, and the start of the new Occasions Catalogue, and Sale-A-Bration!  You’ll be able to order from them on January 4th, 2017.

There are SO many awesome new stamp sets, thinlits/framelits, embellishments, designer series paper – and watercolour pencils!!  Not to mention the fabulous FREE items in the Sale-A-Bration brochure; a lot of them  coordinate with new products in the Occasions catalogue!  If you live in Canada, and don’t already have a demonstrator, contact me to get your copy of the catalogues!

But before we get too far ahead our ourselves – there’s still time to order from the YEAR END CLOSEOUT SALE!  Loads of great deals to be had on retiring products – up to 60% off!  Just click below to go to my online store, and get your order in before January 3rd.


I’ll be sending out my newsletter for January 1st, with my upcoming class schedule, and new Stamp Set of the Month Online Class – something new I’m doing this year!  I’m really looking forward to it; I know that not everyone can make it to an actual class -either time, or distance, or scheduling can be difficult – so I  hope that you will take advantage of my ‘virtual’ classes!  If you’re not already on my mailing list, just CLICK HERE to go to my sign up page, or send me an email debsmart@shaw.ca, and I will add you.  I promise – no spamming!  You will only receive my monthly newsletter; if there’s a fabulous special offer, I do send those notices out – so that you don’t miss out on the good stuff! 🙂

Right now, I’m working on projects for 2 upcoming Blog Hops – the first will be on Dec. 30th, with Janet Wakeland, and will be an ‘Out with the Old, in with the New’ theme; the second one will be on January 1st with the Blogging Friends, and we’ll be featuring all new products!

So stay tuned – be sure to come back & see the goodies!  I’ll be sharing more before then, too.

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
