Life is returning to normal again in the Rist home! We survived the holiday rush with Christmas – the presents and gift giving, the church services, the special foods, and the extended visit from our daughter Megan and the girls as well as Jim’ mom Elda – and we are ready for New Year’s Eve and the beginning of 2022. The Chiefs last regular home game has been played and now we wait for the playoff schedule. And the weather is calling for inches of snow and cold temperatures on New Year’s Day and I am ever so thankful that they play an away game Sunday and I can curl up under the fleece blanket, fireplace going, and NO thermal garments needed to watch them play on the TV! Life is good!
Let’s Create With Punch Art!
We are going to focus on the new punches that Stampin’ Up! is rolling out on January 4 when the January-June Mini Catalog goes live, and I have to say they have scored with their addition to their punch line! I LOVE 5 of the 6 new punches and I’m sure that I will come to appreciate it, but one didn’t make my pre-order list. Only time will tell if I change my mind based on card examples from others! Isn’t that the way it always works???
The Hello Ladybug Set Will Be Available January 4, 2022!!!
I LOVE this adorable ladybug punch!! Super cute and easy to work with. The Hello Ladybug Bundle which includes the stamp set and punch will be a popular one for sure. Especially, when you can order the bundle for a 10% savings off individual prices! I love my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machines and the variety of the dies, but I still go to my punches first when I am designing and fast project. They are easy and quick to use which helps when prepping kits for classes.
Besides the punch pieces for the ladybug, the stamp set has coordinating stamps, as well as a cute little bug image for inside your card or one you can fancy cut. Along with a great leaf image, super cute sayings, and a flower that I believe coordinates with the medium daisy punch from the annual catalog – this bundle will be on most people’s wish list.

Follow Me On Facebook!!!
If you follow me on Facebook you probably saw the post of my granddaughters crafting on a rainy day during their visit. I pull out punches and scrap paper and hand to Jim every so often. After he’s punched, we zip up the punched shapes in a bag and pull out when I need a quick activity for the girls! Give them a 12×12 board that comes in DSP packages and away they went with Nana as the keeper of the glue! If you would like to see their beautiful faces, click on the link below, and while you are there, consider following me so you receive notifications of my upcoming classes, fb lives, and posts!https://www.facebook.com/FlickoftheRist
