Christmas Tags and Stampin’ UP! deals!

Hi Crafters!


I have been totally MIA here lately! I had a crazy work week last week and then I just spent this past weekend at a Scrapbook retreat! It was fun, but I never do get quite as much completed as I hope I will.

I was so busy last week I totally forgot to post the weekly deals on Tuesday! I will post them now, but I also have another update. Stampin’ up is now offering their year end closeouts! There are lots of awesome deals in the closeout. There are items from last years holiday catalog, punches and washi tape and even a few items from the current Holiday catalog. Click on the picture below to check out what is on clearance!

I also thought I would share a couple of cute tags I made that I will be adding on some of my presents this year.
