Country living Holiday collection

Hello again, Its been a crazy week for me, I managed to finally tackle some of my christmas shopping at Target in New York. My friend/Downline, Gwen and I went on Saturday and OH was I tired by the time the night ended.
Anyway, to the point....I am going to offer the Country Living kit collection at a discount to bump up my totals for the challenge that Stampin Up is offering. I am going to offer it to you at the 20% off with any order. See the details for the kit earlier on in my blog. I believe it was posted on Nov. 16th. If you are interested in this offer, please email me directly to take advantage. That is a $10.00 savings, so, instead of $49.95 it will be 39.95 plus shipping and tax. (However, I wouldnt wait too long if you want it back in time to make the ornaments for christmas) I have already sold 10 of these and would like to be the highest seller, which I have no idea how many the other vermont folk have sold so I may not even be close but I also could be close. I'd hate to lose by 1 so if you have any interest in the kit please email me. Thanks
Have a great evening.

I won a tutorial from a fellow stamper

Hello everyone, Guess what? Today I won a tutorial. Usually I buy them from Andrea and today I won one by posting on her blog. I will share her post with you to see.......Here it is.......

Okay, and now onto today’s winner. Drumroll please……the winner of today’s blog give-away is….Betty Button ! Congratulations Betty! Betty will receive the PDF tutorial for this Snowman Window Box. You can use it as shown with a couple of test tubes holding goodies inside (I bought the Martha Stewart test tubes) OR, you could omit the test tube holder portion, cover the windows with acetate and fill them the box with treats. The tutorial includes supplies, dimensions and step-by-step photos with directions. I will be giving away a copy of this PDF tutorial each day for the rest of the month, so if your name hasn’t been drawn yet, don’t give up! Each day you leave a comment, you have a chance to win.
Thanks to Andrea. I will be able to make this project with ease. Her tutorials are what I have been using to do my classes with. THanks to all those that have been coming.

Here is a squashbook and there may be a video added later on to show you how to fold. I have done these at some of my previous workshops but this group hadn't done this so they wanted to do it they took photos and a video. If I can get kym on to post it then I will put the video on it. I'm a little camera shy though so theres not alot to it. What you need to start this project is 3 6x6 pcs of cardstock (2 of 1 color and 1 of another color), 2 pcs of designer paper cut to 4x4 and 2 pcs of cardboard cut at 3 x 3. Fold the 6x6's in half and open turn, fold again in half then you should have 4 3x3 squares on each sheet. Then you open it and fold in half once diagonally so the points meet. That fold will give you the 2 folds that are triangle photos above. You might be able to tell by the picture how to glue them together but if not, maybe I'll make a new video or photos from start to finish. This will make a great christmas gift and is very inexpensive to make. Hope you enjoyed this project.
Thanks for looking.
