ICS Blog Hop Making Every Day Bright

Hello and welcome to the December 2018 Inspire Create & Share Blog Hop!  This month our theme is Christmas Cards Galore, and we want to showcase some of the projects we've all been making this season!

I chose to highlight the Making Every Day Bright Stamp set in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, and the coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

We made this card in Stamp Club, highlighting the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, but also spotlighting the Sincerely Santa Stamp Set:

Then, I had to go and shake it up a bit and add Mrs. Claus from the Signs of Santa Stamp Set and she pairs beautifully with the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper:

I love the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch paired with the Sprig and Cookie Cutter Punches for this adorable reindeer, alongside the Large Letter Framelits, and the Sincerely Santa and Buffalo Check Stamp sets:

Finally, here's a color intense Beautiful Baubles card, featuring Stampin' Blends and Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint, and a tag from Making Every Day Bright made from 'leftovers' on my desk:

I've had the "Merry Christmas" stamp from At Home With You on my desk this whole season.  I don't think I've put it away since October.

Thanks for checking out my blog today!  If you'd like to order any of these amazing products (hurry as some of them are retiring soon), please contact me at

Happy Hopping!
