Stampin’ UP! really hit it out of the park with the Mingle All the Way stamp set. Does it not cover all the bases or what? I love it. The Santa & Co Paper has been under major scrutiny by some, but I say they are crazy. I love it. The moose (mooses?) How do you pluralize moose? It’s not meese, like geese. Someone help me out here….LOL Anyway they are cute, aren’t they? With the lights all tangled in their antlers.

Tips & Tricks
- Simple Layers – This card is pretty straight forward with simple layering. I love sketches that offer this because it makes the card quick and easy to put together. I always think finding the scale on these cards is the most challenging piece. Meaning, you have to cut and recut to get the pieces the correct sizes.
- The Meese – In order to make sure I had a moose sticking up there at the top I had to cut into a piece of paper. Not something I would normally do. I try to conserve as much paper as I can. But it had to be done. The sacrifice was worth it.
- Christmas in October – Yes I am doing Christmas cards now. I figure if I start now I will have enough to mail out come Christmas time. I love Christmas, it’s by far my fav holiday. So I like to do it up big and often. You will see a Christmas card from me every Friday from now until Christmas.
