Welcome back to another week of Fabulous Friday postings here at Sisters in Stamping.  Today we will be sharing some sneak peeks from the Occasions Mini Catalog with you.  Remember you can begin ordering from the Occasions Mini Catalog beginning on Jnauary 4, 2011.  If you don't have your copy yet contact your demonstrator and I'm sure she will be happy to get one out to you right away.

Here is Debbie's great Valentine's card.  It's a buckle card.  Definitely be sure to head over to her blog to see how she made it. You will certainly want to make a few of these on your own.

Rachel also decided to use a Valentine theme on her card.  Want all the pertinent information so you can recreate her card?  Well, head on over to her blog.

Jacque and Karla will be taking this week off to finish enjoying the holidays with their family.  Come back next week to see beautiful creations using the Build a Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch also from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday here at Sisters in Stamping.  This week we are focusing on the decor blocks found in both the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog and the Decor Catalog.  Have you thought to yourself, they look neat but what can I do with them?  Well, we have a few projects to get those creative juices flowing.

Karla Anders is taking the week off due to computer issues.  Hope she'll be able to join us again next week. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop in next Friday too.

Thanksgiving Cards!

In this day and age when most of us have so much to be thankful for, it's good to take the time to send out Thanksgiving cards to your friends and family letting them know that you are thankful for them!  With that thought in mind, we decided to showcase Thanksgiving cards!

Karla made this beautiful Thanksgiving card using non-traditional colors.  Check out Karla's blog for more information on this beautiful card.

 I used the same stamp set that Karla did, but you can see how the use of color and layout really changes the look of the set!  I miss the fall colors living here in Hawaii where everything is pretty much the same year round, so I just had to use these colors in my card.  Check out my blog for a list of supplies used.

Debbie used the Falling Leaves stamp set to create her card this week. Visit her blog to get the full scoop.

Rachel used the Paisley Print and Grateful Greetings stamp sets for her Thanksgiving card.  Head over to her blog for complete details.

We hope you have a great weekend and that you will check back with us next Friday!

I'm taking this week off (again)! I still have quite a few boxes to go through and unpack and to top it off my computer died on Sunday--I know, it's like it knows that this would be a really bad time to do it....that computer never liked me anyway! Stay tuned for next week, we will be thinking Thankful thoughts.

Until then,
Karla, Rachel, Debbie & Jacque

This was created by Rachel Yurkanin. Check out her blog to see how she made it.

And Karla had to take this week off from the challenge because of her recent move.  She was hoping to join us but just hasn't located all her stamping goodies just yet. She will be back with us next week.

Wheels for Fabulous Friday

The Stamping Sisters are focusing on wheels this week. Wheels are a great inexpensive way to add to any stamping project. There are so many styles of wheels in the Idea Book & Catalog, a sure way for any crafter to find something that suits them. Personally, I prefer the Jumbo Wheels. They don't rock on the paper as much and my customers are more successful with them. Speaking of Jumbo Wheels, here is my project for today's Fabulous Friday post--
I used the new jumbo wheel from the Holiday Mini Catalog called Jolly Jingles. Check out my blog for more details:

Debbie is up next with her spooky creation - a 12" x 12" Halloween layout featuring the Haunting jumbo wheel and House of Haunts stamp set.  You will find all the details here on her blog.

Our lovely Jacque is at Founder's Circle this week--lucky girl!! She is taking the week off. The 3 of us all wish we could be there! Maybe next year?

Lastly, Rachel's project. A little gift bag for a special Holiday treat using the new builder wheels in the Holiday mini.  Check out Rachel's blog for more information.

Come back next week for a "sweet" Fabulous Friday offer. Until then,

Karla, Debbie, Rachel and Jacque
