My Craft Room Will Be Closed For Awhile...

Happy Holidays Crafty Peeps,

I hope you all are having a blast creating Christmas cards, Hanukkah cards, scrapbook pages and home decor during this magical season. 


I had so many great ideas for these two new stamp sets and so many more that are sadly just sitting on my craft desk.

After having two unsuccessful heart surgeries in October and November, I am having Open Heart Surgery tomorrow morning in downtown Chicago. 

I have one of the best Heart Surgeons in the Country so I am in good hands and should be back to my old self come springtime!

That being said, it is a long recovery and I am planning on starting Cardiac Rehab in February/March. 

My craft room will be dark for awhile but Stampin’ Up! has assured me that when I am ready to get back on my feet, I can pick up right where I left off, no worries and this is why I adore this company!

You can continue to place online orders while I am recovering and that would be great! 

I just wanted all of you to know what has been going on, why I haven’t been uploading videos as often as I used too... It’s been a hectic journey but I am ready to get back to my old self.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty, I feel so blessed to have many of you as customers but more so as friends. 

Happy Holidays,

Blessed Christmas Wishes ~

Greetings Crafty Peeps,

I am in full swing of the holidays and I thought I’d share this beautiful card using the stamp set  “Night in Bethlehem”.

I found this simple and classic card idea on Pinterest and I am sorry I didn’t write the gal’s name down...


It’s also one of the three *FREE* card kits you will recieve during this Hostess Code period. It’s so pretty and truly the reason for the season!

Happy Holidays to all,

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas 🎄!!!

Happy Saturday Everyone,

Welcome to the best month of the year, December! Our house is all decked out and I love to have decorations all over the house. Here is our beautiful mantel with the stockings I made for each precious person in our family. 


The sparkle on each one is so enchanting and I enjoy looking at them everyday.


The fireplace is the focal point in the family room and I will post the beautiful tree tomorrow. What are some of your favorite Christmas decorations in your home? Please share in the comments below this post or share pictures on The Happy Stamper Facebook page ~ 

Happy Hugs,

Ep. #629 ~ Chirstmas Packaging | Recycled Shopping Bags

Hi there Crafty Peeps,
As promised here is the quick and easy Recycled Gift Bag/Packaging project I spoke of earlier in my post. I know everyone has tons of these bags that we keep in our closets and really never use. Well now is the time to grab your glue, some cute 12" x 12" holiday paper, ribbon and cardstock to make gift tags.
Don't forget the hot cocoa and a Christmas c.d. to have playing in the background!


I hope this saves you some money and perhaps instead donating the money instead or just saving it this season. 
Happy Holidays,

Making Christmas 🎄 Merry!

Hi Crafty Peeps,

I am all about recycling and this holiday season is the perfect time to use those unattractive brown bags that most of us have in our closets! 

Don’t spend upwards of $5 - $7 for a gift bag, that’s ridiculous!!! Save your money and reuse those perfect redecorated gift bags. 


I am taping a fun video right now so make sure to check back here on my blog or over on my YouTube Channel to see how cute this project is ... 

Also if you aren’t on my Facebook-The Happy Stamper page, what are you waiting for??? Get over there and stay inspired and excited about crafting! 

Happy Holidays,
