Jolly Holidays, Haul and Giveaway

Today, I finally have a few Jolly Holidays Cards for you–a Haul and a giveaway!!

This is also my first day of something fun I am going to do on my site this Β month! (I’ll tell you more in a minute–first let’s look at my Jolly Cards)

This one, I used Flocking, Stickles, a rhinestone eye & Winter Fun Stamp Set

This one I used stickles and Winter Fun Stamp Set

This one, which is Mr. Pink Cricut’s favorite–because of the super cute penguin…I used, Peachy Keen Happy Lashes stamps & Pink by Design Winter Fun Stamp Set

Okay, now more on my fun little activity this month!

  • Love your cards, sooo cute!! And girl can I come to your house and play with your stash, what a haul, awesome!! The word art is so cool, would like one that says family!!

  • Love your haul videos! Love, love, love the word art!!! I would definitely have one done in our last name so that I could place family photos around it. Gorgeous! I just stopped by Sunshine’s website and put her blog button on my sidebar! Would love to help promote her business because I think it’s a wonderful gift idea!


  • Love your haul. I think we all have the same taste. I got the Lites, the pink lamp, the street lace stacks, and of course the Loris Garden, & Shall we Dance. I love the Sizzix bow die…. I’m going to have to find that now :). I love the Taylored Inspiration !!!! I’ve seen them before & have wanted to get one. It would say CINDY, or get some that said LIVE LAUGH LOVE. Great haul! πŸ™‚
    Cindy πŸ™‚

  • I love her ideas! I think it’s so awesome how she has found letters in everyday items. How fun is that. I would love to have my last name done because it would be really fun to see what she came up with.

    Thanks for showing us your haul videos!

  • Your cards are super cute! I’ve got to get the Jolly Holidays cartridge. And I’m jealous of your haul. πŸ™‚ Love the letter art! I would love to have one with our last name.

  • Loved the haul video and the cards from Jolly Holidays! My sister finally bought out for me from Walmart so I am super excited to get it over the holidays now πŸ™‚ I love Sunshine’s website and the concept for her business – I definitely joined her mailing list! I am considering showing it to my husband tonight – we need a gift for his mother so this might be the perfect idea! If I was buying one for my home it would definitely be “family”, without question. Thank you for the giveaway!

  • My word art would be for my daughter, she has a spanish name and it is always so difficult to find her name on anything. So I think this would be great for her. Her name is Lourdes Cecilia. Thank you for the chance to win. Love your card and What Haul!! Great shopping. Thank you for sharing.

  • Love your cards!!! So cute and I did manage to find Jolly Holidays too! YAY! Love your haul video..makes me want to go out and buy everything! I did get the OTT light too; only in white as my scraproom is green! And I just love the letter are! I would put my last name as its unusual and never found anywhere! Thanks for the opportunity to win such an awesome treasure!

  • Wow! I love that!! Mine would say “family” Super cute cards!! I’m with Mr. Pink, I love the penguin card!! Great haul!!
    Thanks for the chance to win

  • Great haul video! Looks like you got some great deals! πŸ™‚ I love the letter art! I would probably get my last name or ‘welcome’. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Cute cards. What a great haul you got. Lucky you. Checked out Taylored Inspirations and subscribed. I would get our last name on the letter art. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Your cards are adorable. You got a great haul on Black Friday. Watched your other video also and you guys looked like you were having a blast. Could not believe the line at Toys R Us. I would want a saying to decorate my craft room but I am not sure what yet. Something with creativity!

  • What cute cards. What a great haul. I also got the Twinkle Toes even though I have Shall We Dance, it looks much cuter and my DD is only 6 so more her style. TFS

  • I think I would love to do our last name. I haven’t done anything with our name in the house and I love the style of her work…would love to win!

  • Since I have a long last name, I would just go with “family” it cover’s all the in-laws and out-laws and such. I also got Twinkle Toes because I have an 8 yr. old GD that love to scrap with me. Great Haul. Thanks for Sharing.

  • I think my letter art would either say Family or our last name which is Taft. I might go with Family tho. Then I can put it at the top of my family wall that has all of our extended families pictures. Thanks for the chance to win. papermemories4u at yahoo dot com

  • Awesome Haul video…can’t wait to see that christmas paper being used loved the kraft snowman one…Taylored Inspirations is a wonderful website loved all her work so unique…thanks to both of you for the chance to win!! Merry Christmas to all of you :0)

  • I bet you had fun shopping. I was at walmart at midnight and all the carts were gone by 12:05. I wish I could of gotten Holly Jolly but, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. LOL. I love your framed art!! My sister has one she got in a little store in Seattle and they are so wonderful. If I had to choose it would be a toss up between my last name and Family. Thank you so much for your wonderful web site and giving all of us a chance to win one of these beautiful art pieces.

  • I love your cards… you had quite a “haul”. I would have mine say “Love Always”, it is a saying my husband used to say to me all the time. Instead of I love you it was love always. Thanks for the chance to win one. Cheryl

  • Wow love the haul =) So many fun goodies! And the art work is awesome. I would have a hard time choosing something, love or inspire. Something that means something and is motivitional =)

  • Love your stash and the cards… can I go shopping with you next time? Love everything you bought especially twinkle toes. I have 5 year old ballerina.

  • Love the haul video…I have a box being put together that I need to ship to you. Hopefully that will be today. That art is superb! I don’t know why I have not tried this. Its beautiful and she is super talented. I really love the cards you made too! Perfection!


  • Mine would say Negron- our last name. I would hang it in my foyer. Love all the goodies you got. I did see the Ottlights on sale at Joann’s but not in pink! Too cute. Thanks for a chance to win.

  • O I sure enjoyed going shopping with yawl.. I wonder what was at TARGETS THO…LOLOL
    Mine would have to say HOOTER
    for my Hubbie Hoot..:O)
    I got to get me that LIGHT TOOOOO!!

  • I wish I had realized the Ott Lites were so cheap! I worked on Thanksgiving at Michael’s and I didn’t see ANY leave the store! I totally would have bought one…. oh well, next coupon, LOL! Love your fun haul videos! I think if I won the word art I would do one for my youngest daughter and it would say “Evangeline”. My oldest (Penny – really Penelope) has two name signs in her room, one says “Penny Candy” from an old store and the other is a Penny Lane street sign… I’m sure we won’t run across any Evie or Evangeline signs any time soon! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  • i think i would go with lzbthnn (my name w/o vowels). going to see Sunshine now ! wish i could get a pink ott lite, but it will probably be at full pricr now πŸ™ Great haul…someday i’ll get a facy cricut !

  • Oh my Goodness I checked out her site and she is only 2 1/2 hours away from me. If I was ever fortunate to get one of these amazing wall arts it would have to say “OmasCrafts” of course and would hang right above my door (inside the room so I could see it all the time).

    Precious Hugs

  • Very Cute! Love all that you got…and am pretty jealous πŸ™‚ The word art is amazing! I think if I were to do one I’d do a Heart and then our last name Lee and then another heart. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing Sarah!!

  • First of all, LOVE those adorable cards! Secondly, thanks for the coupon code and a chance to win. Thirdly, I have subscribed and my word art would definitely say Bella Bug! TFS!

  • Love the video! Great Haul. I got a few lites on BF too, but I didn’t get that twinkle toes because of having Shall We Dance, and now I wish I had grabbed that one too. I love the artwork. I would love to have my last name, but I think it might be too long. LOL! Perhaps Inspire or Family. Thanks for sharing

  • Your cards are great. Maybe someone will give me that cartridge so that I can make them too. My word are would have to say “Happy Campers”. Love your stash and thanks for sharing. I will subscribe to Taylor Inspirations.


  • Dear Santa…oops I mean Pink Cricut, I think I would have my art say “Breathe” and I would look at it to remember to take a deep breath every now and then. I am going to put that “Four Legged Friends” Cartridge on my wish list too!

  • I love your idea of giving the framed art as a wedding gift, so that’s what I’d have made. Two of my cousins are getting married next year, so having the art spell out the couple’s new last name would be a fabulous gift!

  • NICE HAUL!! I got the same OttLite at M’s, but in white. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it or give it away, so I got white, but I really wanted pink for me!

    If I were to win the gift from TayloredInspirations, I would have it made with my last name – ALGERI. I am proud to be married to my husband and proud to be a part of his family and so glad that I took his name as my very own. I have been looking at having artwork of our name made, but haven’t take the time to spend the dime. Thanks for the chance to win!!

    See ya soon!

  • My frame would say SMILE πŸ˜€ Loved your haul…great shopping. I also like the Twinkle Toes and have scrapping to do from years of daughters dance classes and recitals. That would come in perfectly. Your cards turned out very cute too. Your idea about singing italics sounds like fun.

  • Love the haul videos so much! I think that I would like to order the word art for my sister for Christmas and it would be her last name…Would love one for myself and my daughter is getting married in April …what a wonderful idea for a wedding gift!

    Thanks so much for all that you share with us =)

  • Great minds think alike!! I picked up the same 3 Lite carts from Walmart and I had bought the Shall We Dance? cart off a circle member which I like but I loooooove the Twinkle Toes one it is so stinkin cute. I would love our last name in word art. ~lori

  • oh my gosh what a great haul. by to time i got to our wal mart they were out of the good lites on sale πŸ™ i didn’t end up with any πŸ™

    If I won I think I would either get FAMILY or my last name, I have been eying those pictures for awhile now so this would be perfect πŸ™‚

  • I really love your haul videos. Your name picture came out great. I would love my last name but is a little long. 9 letters. mabe family.

  • Wow! Looks like you really scored on the sales! I got the light (in black) too. I have 3 other Ott Lights and love them! I would choose “Grandchildren” for my parents. My Mom has all the kid’s pictures hanging on a big wall in their house and this would look nice with it. Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to see what othe “favorites” you have!

  • Great haul I also got an Ott light mine is white but here in Canada they were $27.99 on sale I love your cards did you use your pre-made cards under those? I love your word art if I were to get one I think I would want it to say create and I would hang it in my craft room thanks for the chance to win one and thanks for doing your videos

  • THIS is just such a neat gift!! I subscribed to her FB site.

    Hmmm, I imagine mine would say, “SCHOTT” since that is my last name. If I had my ‘druthers’ I’d love to have one that really said, “My Life (heart) My Love (Heart) My World” coz that’s one thing that Erik and I say to each other.

    Thanks for sharing this, Sarah! It’s really something different, for which I’m always on the lookout!


  • Love the cards and what a haul! I just got some cartridges the other day from EBay and can’t wait to play with them. I think my letter art would be either FAMILY or AUSTIN, (who is my grandson).
    You always find such great hauls!

  • Looks like you had fun on Friday! Great stuff! I love the word art! I can’t decide if I’d want one with my last name or one that says family! Maybe both! πŸ˜€ I’m Sunshine’s newest subscriber! Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!

  • I think I would either get my last name or else something like BEACH………to remind me where I’d rather be than working!! πŸ™‚

  • I love to see your “hauls”….makes me want to shop! I love the Jolly Holidays too…just got mine delivered from I would make a gift from Taylored Inspirations for my husband with either our last name or something for his profession! I’m off to her site to follow right now!

  • Wow, that is so cool! I think the first one I would get would be my last name, Baxter. But I could think of so many neat ones to do too! Great gift idea! And your cards are so cute and I always love your haul videos! Thanks so much!:)

  • I think I would have to go with the last name as well, but there are so many possibilities. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Great stash today! You are my shopping hero. I LOVE Taylored Expressions. I just signed up – thank you for the referral! My first sign would be my sister’s last name – as a Christmas gift. I really like the way yours turned out!

  • Love the haul video! I can’t find Jolly Holidays, but I’m going to keep looking. If I won the Taylored Inspiration Wall Art, I’d have it say Angelica. This is the name of the tiny little village my husband grew up in. We have a wall with Angelica Memorabilia, and this would be a perfect addition. Thanks aagin for the great video!

  • OMG Love everything you got!! I want those two stacks :=) My letter art would probably be my maiden name “isola”

    Thanks for sharing!

  • I’ve now subscribed to Taylor Inspiration.My letter art would be INSPIRE for my scrapbooking area. Thanks for the opportunity to win! I’m so jealous you have Jolly Holidays! I want that cart SO BAD!

  • Sarah – WOW you got some amazing new toys. I want to come over and play!!!

    Mine would also have my last name – this way the whole family could enjoy it.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Sarah, I enjoy coming to your blog…it is so amazing..the cards that you do for us is so wonderful. I love your new picture art, I would love one for my craft room, but I think my last name would be too long.lolol I would like one saying “CREATE” because this is the room where I “try” to create. I will have my fingers and toes crossed that I win!!!

  • Looks as though we did alot of the same shopping. I just loved Twinkle Toes. One of the other carts that I had wanted and hadn’t been able to find was Quarter Note. I found it at Michaels on sale. Probably the last place I would have thought of. So that was a plus.
    I like the black and white letter art. I would probably choose Melissa which is my daughters name. She does alot of black and white photography. I have a wall of her photos and this would go nicely added there.

  • I saw your work at the fallcity craft show last weekend, and my daughter really wants one of your pictures, she wants one that says KOCH . I really like them too, the one that said love was really cute <3

  • Love the letter art. I have been wanting one with our lastname ever since we got married. This would look FABULOUS in our new house. Thanks for the chance to win!!! Just checked out the website. AWESOME!!!! Love it!!!

  • Congrats on all of the wonderful finds! I would love this!!! I’ve thought about creating something like this myself. I would love my last name (Billman) or Family. I guess if I won I would actually have to decide! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance!!! πŸ™‚
