Hi there stampers!
It is August 1st today, a day I've had marked on my calendar all summer! Today starts the Christmas season at Stampin'Up! There is a new Holiday catalog for 2017 and it will be in your hands as soon as I can get them in mine! One of the perks of being a demonstrator is being able to preorder new product, see what's coming, take advantage of early release sets, etc.
There was a really amazing new bundle released to us in July and now, available to you! It's called "Carols of Christmas" and features some bold stamps and extremely creative and versatile framelits! I want to share a couple of cards I made, today, and then in the future will feature each card with all the details. Here they are:
As you can see, there is some wonderful creating going on here. My favorite is the first one because I love the sky, trees and deer. I plan to use this set for birthday cards and more and not just restrict it to Christmas season use. Are you curious about the set? Here's a closer look:
There are a lot of possibilities there! While the Holiday catalog products aren't available to purchase until September 1st, you can get a jump on Christmas with this bundle! Go to the "shop now" link and you'll see Carols of Christmas as one of the options on the left side bar menu on the store website. Watch for future blog posts too featuring this fun set!
Ah, August.... it's still summer, but oh so close to not being summer. There's still a lot of fun to be had and even some creating to be done. I've loaded up my class schedule too so check that out on my website as well. Crafting is a great idea all year, right?!!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
