Christmas Stampin' Sampler No. 2

Do you know what these little squares look like in real life?  Little shortbread cookies.  I just want to eat them!  This is one of my favorite projects ever in the 14 years that I've been a demonstrator.  Funny how something so little and simple can bring so much joy!  It's all Very Vanilla card stock and Crumb Cake ink.  I used the 1-3/8" Square Punch, the Postage Stamp Punch, and the Merry Minis Punch Pack with the Merry Minis stamp set!  This is all I needed to get in the mood for Christmas, so bring on the merry now!  I'M READY!

Christmas Stampin' Sampler

We've kind of gone sampler crazy down here in Katy, Texas!  We're having so much fun creating samplers for each holiday or season.  Funny thing is, I'm not getting tired of them at all!  If anything, I'm wanting to make more!  This is the Christmas Stampin' Sampler I offered at my last event.  It was quite an ambitious project with 25 squares, but we made it through, and everyone was thrilled with their framed 12 X 12 piece!  Five of these squares were ideas I got from members of The TOPICS!because we've been engaging in "square swaps," and the other 20 were mine.  I ended up changing some of these squares, though, because my customers were fabulous at adding more bling to the squares - and I wanted mine to have more bling, too, so this is what I finally ended up with!  LOVE IT and am so proud to hang it up during the holidays!  I'm sure I won't want to take it down once Christmas has passed!  Not to worry, though, I've got a winter sampler in the works!  Ha!  HELP ME - I'M MAKING SAMPLERS AND I CAN'T STOP!
