I find myself always buying all the new holiday lines when they come out, but then I donot use them and they collect dust in my scrappy area. I have been having a hard time scrapping lately, lots of life changes, so I decided to reevaluate how and why I scrap. And figured why not tackle something I think is hard for me and see if I can do it. If I can, then the rest should come easy, right? J
I bought some new Doodlebug Christmas Candy this winter and decided this was it; I was going to do some Christmas layouts. Doodlebug is a timeless scrapbooking company. They always have the cutest papers and embellishments and they stick with what they know works. While I do love trends and the companies that supply us scrappers with that, I also love that I can pick up a Doodlebug paper or embellishment and mix them with some from a couple years back and they mesh together perfectly.
For example, this layout below uses papers and stickers from this Winters Christmas Candy release, yet it also uses buttons and letters from a couple of years back…which I found easily using my organized Clip it up! Would you notice that if I did not tell you?? That is what I think is great about Doodlebug. It is simply Timeless!
This is my last post for Clip it Up. It has been a pleasure working with such talented ladies and working with a product I completely believe in!!!! Happy Holidays to all and may 2010 bring peace, happiness and joy!!

Also because Christmas is in a few days and my son, his wife and my two grandkids are here from Pennsylvania for the holidays (and if any of you are grandmas, you know they are top priority) so I’m taking some time off work to be with them. We plan on announcing the new design team by the end of the year. What a great way to start the year for some lucky and talented winners! I know all of you who submitted applications are anxiously waiting, and I’m sorry for the delay, but I hope you’ll understand.
On behalf of all of us here at Simply Renee Inc we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas. May your holidays be filled with family, friends, gifts from the heart and joy as you celebrate the end of this year and the start of a new year.

Here is my solution:
It's easy all I did was go to my local craft store and purchase Krylon Gold Metallic spray paint. I sprayed the round base, pole, handle and tri-arm (remove the metal ring). Then used Tattered Angels gold glitter spray to add some shine. Next we decorated it using My Little Yellow Bicycle's 25 days of Christmas collection (Love, love, love this). Lastly we added some Christmas ribbon to the bottom and top.
Now I have a creative and fun way to visually display all my Christmas cards!!!
Leave me a comment on how you would decorate a Clip it Up and you'll have a chance to win a FREE Clip it Up Mini. I'll hold a drawing on Dec. 15, 2009. Make sure you come back and check to see if you won!!!

To get started, gather 24 Christmas/Winter themed books. A great place to build your stock of books is the dollar section at Target, Marshall's/T.J. Maxx andScholastic book orders via your child's school.
Make up 24 countdown tags. I used Doodlebug papers and stickers for my tags and then stamped on the numbers.
Wrap up all the books (let the kids help and let go off any perfectionist tendencies...it was hard for me!). Make up 24 tags to countdown the days and number your books. We count backwards to Christmas in our home so we start with 24 and work our way to #1. I numbered all the books randomly with the exception of 'Twas the Night before Christmas' as we always ready this Christmas Eve night.
Then put them all in cute bin (mine is from Target) and enjoy!

My two regular Clip it Ups came in quite handy for my regular colored-normal sized alphabets and embellishments. One is full of alphabets and one is for my embellishments. But I soon figured out that too many packages of letters and embellishments are numerous colors and some are even packaged in 12"x12" packages.

I started with this card for a friend that just had a baby girl. It isn’t overly pink, which I kind of like for a change! I also added a little messaged inside.
I also made a mini album for her as a special place to house and display photos of her sweet boy. Lots of Glimmer Mist was used on this project – I wanted it to feel sparkly and angelic.

I love absolutely love the butterfly images and sentiments that are in this lovely stamp set. They would look wonderful on any project. And I can't say enough how beautiful the Graphic 45 papers are! If you've never had the pleasure of working with their papers then you're in for the time of your life! These papers are absolutely gorgeous!
If you have projects you've made using either these stamps or papers I'd love to see them! Have a great day!

I made these really simple, yet cute, cards with just a vintage stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms and some paper from Graphic 45. They paired perfectly together and took me seconds to make! I love the simplicity and multi purpose feel of the cards!

All you need to do is cut a wood dowel to 12" long. Tie a ribbon from one end to the other. Attach 2 Clip it Up clips to the ribbon and then clip up your 12"x12" layout. Make sure you use a Clip it Up clip grip to protect the paper from clip marks. Hang it in a special location and now you and your loved ones can admire your layout for days to come.
How easy and cute is that? Thanks Pink Paislee for sharing!

All that chipboard is really quite heavy. But when I hung them up the Clip It Up didn’t become unbalanced at all!!!! Sweeeett!!!!
