Wondering how to do it? Keep reading for all of the details!
If you don't have Stazon ink you can also use Stampin' Up! craft pads. Once you stamp your image in the craft ink onto the coasters you'll want to bake it in the oven to make sure it is good and set. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Once cooled you need to seal the tile with a clear spray.
To finish off the coasters I applied felt pads to the bottom, so that they didn't scratch any surfaces.
If you have any questions, please call or e-mail me!

Christmas is coming soon. . . are you going to be ready? One of the things you may have left to do is stamp your Christmas cards, so the sample I have to share with you today is a card using the stamp set: A Cardinal Christmas. This stamp set can be found in the Winter Mini Catalog, and is also a stamp set I have in my own personal collection. When I first saw it I knew I couldn't live without it.
Before I show you the sample I want to ask you a question. Do you have 4 or more stamp sets on your wish list? Would you like to get those them at a discount? Well when you purchase the Standard Starter Kit you get to choose 4 stamp sets. Stampin' Up! has 4 recommended stamp sets, but you don't have to choose those. You can pick any the same price or less.
If you would like more information about joining the Stampin' Up! family, please call (309/343-9356) or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! By the way . . . the retail value of products and business supplies in the Standard Starter Kit is more than $335. You pay only $199!
OK. . . onto the awesome Christmas Card! This card was created by: Cherise Schlicher.

I would also like to say Hi and Welcome to all of the wonderful ladies who stopped by my booth at the VFW craft show on Saturday. I'm glad you stopped by, and I'm even happier you are checking out my blog. Please let me know how I can help.
Here is another project I made for the craft show. They are 2009 Calendars, which I thought would be a perfect addition to any desk.
The first two use the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I adhered them to a coaster then used my sanding sponge on each edge. Then I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole and set my Jumbo Pewter Eyelet. The first two I also used the stripped Riding Hood Red Ribbon to tie the two coasters together.
For the calendar below I used the Holiday Treasures designer paper and the 1" Double-Stitched Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon. I finished by using my Craft & Paper Scissors to make the ends look neat.

Are you wondering what the bottles on the table are? Well they started out as empty frappuccino bottles that my sister, Carmen, has been saving for me. Thank you Carmen! I added a little paper and ribbon and filled them with a yummy treat. As you can see I didn't have the treat in them yet. Here is a better photo of the bottle.

Today's post is going to be quick, so you can get going. :o)
For the craft show I altered some Jumbo Paper Clips. This would make perfect stocking stuffer or tie them to the top of a package for your neighbor or friend! You could even stick them in a Christmas Card. If you have an idea how to use them, please post a comment! I'd love to hear from you.

Last year I made cute little binder clips for this show. They are a perfect item to put on your desk with a holiday picture, keep on your kitchen counter with a recipe card, or use them a name place cards for your Christmas Dinner. You simply slide the image behind the scallop punch and they are ready!
The jumbo binder clips were so much fun to make last year that I just had to make more this year.
Can you see the Dazzling Diamonds on the Snowman's hat?
Thanks for looking, and if you're local I hope to see you tomorrow at the show.

People often tell me that they are not creative enough to become a demonstrator. Please let me be the first to tell you that when you join Stampin' Up! you will not be left alone! I am here to help you, and you do NOT need to come up with ideas on your own. Stampin' Up! provides us with a art gallery of cards and projects we are able to use as inspiration. You can either copy the ideas as is, or tweak them to fit your needs and stamping supplies on hand.
Ready for some samples???? I thought so. :o)

Do you have a passion for stamping and/or scrapbooking? Would you love to earn money doing something you love? How about the convenience of setting your own hours? Those are just a few of the benefits that made me decide to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
As you think about becoming a demonstrator I want to ask you a question. . . what type of a demonstrator would you like to be? There are many options, and I've listed a few below.:
DISCOUNT DEMONSTRATOR: Likes the idea of buying stamps for personal use at a discount and occasionally sells to friends and family.
SHORT-TERM DEMONSTRATOR: Sells for a short period of time to earn a specified amount of money and stops when the goal is reached.
HOBBY DEMONSTRATOR: Loves doing workshops and classes and earning extra money when it’s convenient, works a lot some months and very little or none, other months.
STAY-AT-HOME MOM DEMONSTRATOR: Wants to stay at home with her children and make some extra money working a few nights a month.
CAREER DEMONSTRATOR: Views Stampin’ Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential; pursues management and wants to move up the career ladder; regularly attends Stampin’ Up! events and has developed close social relationships with other demonstrators; works at her business in a consistent manner.
As you can see, this is a flexible, fun business you can build to suit your needs and desires. Make it fit for you by using your unique talents. I’m sure you have a lot of questions about what it means to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Please e-mail me at: email@example.com and I'll send you a FREE information packet in the mail.
I hope to hear from you soon!

My card uses Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White Card Stock. Of course I had to use my Big Shot and Top Note Bigz die. Have I told you how much I use my Big Shot? TONS!!! Stamp sets used are: All Holiday and Merry & Bright. I also used my Scallop punch and 1-3/8" circle punch.
It looks like I punched a Chocolate Chip scallop out and layered onto the Pretty in Pink card stock, but I really just punched the scallop out of the pretty in pink and the Chocolate Chip came through. I'm not sure if this is the way Angie did it or not, but I like the look.
I topped of the hat with some chunky sprinkles and colored with my Pretty in Pink Marker. This is a very simple card that you could easily make over and over again. Try changing the color! That will give the card a whole new feel.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to hear from you soon.

With groceries yet to buy,
Lessons, work & housecleaning.
Life’s so crazy! Why?
Bells on our telephone ring.
The machine will take the call.
We have no time for family or friends.
It drives us up the wall.
How are you? How’s your life?
We really want to know.
Hope you’re ready for Christmas.
We’re doubtful we’ll see snow.
A day or two ago,
For all our special friends ~
Our intentions were top notch.
But our schedules would not budge.

You can bet I'm going to be using my Big Shot on a lot of the projects, because it's awesome!!! Here I used my Top Note Bigz Die to top off the cello bag. The stamp set I used is Deer Friends, which is a level 2 hostess only stamp set. There is still time to earn this stamp set for FREE, so call or e-mail me today to schedule your workshop!
I also made a few in Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue. This time I used the Merry & Bright Stamp set.
And . . . since I didn't have a blog last year to share items with you I couldn't resit taking a minute to show you my 2007 Snowman Soup.
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for some homemade fudge!!!
