Shop Now from the Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catalog

Any crafter knows that when it comes to handmade items for the holiday season, you must shop and get started creating early to get things done on time and so you do not feel frazzled last minute.

If you love Stampin’ UP! products and create your own holiday cards, gift packaging, or enjoy saving your photos in beautiful Scrapbook pages, then September 1st was a day of joy seeing the new items which you can now purchase for your holiday creations.

Last Thursday, I shared a few card samples with the Christmas Quilt Bundle from the holiday catalog which made the top of my list.  As I mentioned, this set can be played with for hours, never creating the same design.  Today, I share a few more items I created with this Bundle.

You’ll notice a few small 3″x3″ cards.  Exciting news: the holiday catalog contains the envelopes for this size! Yippee! Once retired, now returned for the holiday (and one can hope/dream beyond) catalog.  This size is perfect for gift bags and packages or even lunch box notes.

There are also some very cute Pizza Boxes in which the 3″x3″ size cards & envelopes will fit. The sample below was decorated with a bit of Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, matching card stock, a tree stamped & cut with the Christmas Quilt bundle & a small tag from the Bunch of Banners dies.

The inside of these boxes is food grade gloss-lined. They would easily hold a cookie or chocolates, or perhaps a bracelet or other jewelry, but they also quite nicely contain some of the 3″x3″ cards and envelopes seen above. Design them to match a roll of wrapping paper and you have the perfect gift for an early December gift exchange.

Before you know it the holidays will arrive and you’ll wish you started creating things just a little earlier. Get started now so you can get it all done. Plus, avoid that frazzled feeling that inevitably occurs as we wait to long to start that holiday craft project.

Until next time…

Christmas Quilt: Just one of the fantastic new Stampin’ UP! Holiday products

The Stampin’ UP! Holiday catalog is about to debut to customers around the world tomorrow, September 1, 2017, and the first pages of this catalog will thrill you with the new Christmas Quilt Bundle if you or anyone you know is a quilter. Here is a sneak peek of that bundle:

I’ve had this bundle in my hands for a few weeks and am just as thrilled with it as I thought I would be.

It is not just a set for Christmas, but perfect for any season as you can change the papers you use to reflect the mood which you wish to create. Just like real making a fabric quilt  gives endless results with different fabrics, this bundle can provide a different look by switching out designer series paper or cardstock colors. You could sit down and play for hours with this set!

There is so much to like about this bundle. The needle is absolutely adorable with the thread & spool. The mini stars & flowers could be used with many other sets. Also, there are dies of holly leaves and a flower which could be used as a poinsettia. Plus, it contains great geometric shapes to stamp and die cut.

As you wait in anticipation until you can order, start thinking about all the scrap paper quilt designs you can create (any 3″x3″ piece will create the main quilt piece), or imagine cross stitch embroidery floss spool cards, or creating a sewing project, or making those cute triangle trees, or adding the geometric shapes to scrapbook layouts, or… Well, you can see how my mind wanders with this set. Now you know why it was the first thing on my list during demonstrator pre-order period!

To get your own Christmas Quilt bundle or simply just to check out the new items and SU! Samples in the online store, you can shop with me HERE.

Thanks to those who support me. It is because of all of you I can continue as a demonstrator and blog my favorite hobby.

Until next time…
