Happy December 1st everyone! The first day of the month is always YOU CAN CREATE IT INTERNATIONAL – a share that I do with demonstrators from Germany, Canada, Netherlands, and everywhere in between.
Here’s how it works…. we are given a set of supplies and the challenge is to create a project using these supplies. We can add other supplies but I really like to work with the supplies and not add anything. It’s really fun to see what I can create using just the supplies given.
For December, we were challenged to use:
- 4″ x 6″ Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper
- 8 ½” x 5 ½” Smoky Slate cardstock
- 40″ Smoky Slate Thick Bakers Twine
- (6) Home For Christmas Enamel Dots
Let me show you what I created from the supplies this month. I used the card base to create this fun Christmas Cracker. I absolutely LOVE creating Christmas Crackers for stocking stuffers. They are just FUN to make and fun to give!
I typically love to make my creations with only the supplies given but this project desperately needed a tag so I used some Red Glimmer Paper and the Decorative Label punch. The Merry Christmas is my FAVORITE Christmas stamp set, Lots of Joy (page 69 of the big catalog).
These Christmas Crackers will hold about 6 Hershey Nugget chocolates or any other yummy you might want to put inside. A roll of quarters would fun too!
I hope you like the project! Join me later this week for a video tutorial on how to create it this quick and easy project!
Now, let me share with you what my Stampin’ Up Demonstrator friends from around the globe create with this month’s supplies.

Now, you may be wondering about this month’s “Let’s Get Creative” video & tutorial. I am going to do something FUN this month. Because December is SUCH a crazy busy time for all of us, instead of a video & tutorial, how about a PRESENT?! Yep, place any $25 or more order (before tax & shipping) and use DECEMBER HOST CODE PMANA4VA and you will find a nice little surprise in your Thank You card. Who doesn’t LOVE a present at Christmas time?!
NEVER RECEIVED A THANK YOU CARD? If you have placed orders with me and never received a handmade thank you card, that means you checked the box asking not to be contacted. I totally respect that decision but please know that I am not able to send you a thank you card and a gift. I won’t be able to send you the upcoming Occasions catalog or Sale-a-Bration catalog. As a matter of fact, I don’t even see your name. If you would like to change your account to receive these things, here are the steps to take.
