Mingle all the Way Mojo Monday 366 – Freebie Friday

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.
Last weeks Freebie Friday winner is: Kathy Broadaway, email me at wendy.cranford@live.com and you will receive your 4 handmade cards in the mail!

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.
The sketch.  Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday.  You should go over and play along.  You have until Sunday.  And while you are at it go over to Creative Challenge Club and do the sketch there too.  Wow I am bossy!
We had a team meeting call last night on Go To Meeting and it was so fun.  We shared a bunch of Christmas cards.  If you want to be part of our club you can join us anytime by purchasing the starter kit from Stampin’ UP! Purchase the kit in the month of October and you get one pack of free Designer Series Paper every month for six months.  Great deal.  Learn more here about being a Luvly Stamper

    Such a cute card! I’m not so sure I like the dancing Santas in this collection, but the moose is adorable!

    Cute moose card. I don’t like the dancing santas either, but this paper is really cute. Yes, Wendy, the plural of moose is moose.
