Yippeee! It’s coming up to my favourite time of the year. I LOVE Christmas and (for us in Australia) the wonderful long summer holidays. Oooh I can almost smell the suntan lotion and BBQ’s.
While I’m not quite wishing the year away (still too much fun to be had in 2014 yet), I’m thrilled that the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2014 Seasonal Catalogue is here.
- Or visit my ONLINE STORE to see all the products. You can easily add them to your shopping bag and you’ll be well on your way with this year’s Christmas preparations.
Don’t you love browsing through the catalogues and seeing all those clever and inspirational projects?
If you are in Australia and would like your own copy just send me an email or PM me via Facebook and I’ll be happy to pop one in the mail for you. (If you already have a demonstrator who helps you with your orders, please contact her for a copy.)
For your convenience you can download the supplies list which itemizes all the products used to make those inspirational sample projects. Download the SUPPLIES LIST here.
Curvy Keepsakes Box – Thinlits Die
I’ve been playing with the new Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlits Die recently. Squeal!!!! I love this die!
You can find it on page 11 of the new Holiday Catalogue, along with some basic instructions. They make the cutest like boxes, and they even come with little tag dies too.
To make the box you just cut out two shapes using the framelits, and adhere them together at the bottom. They have a great little closure mechanism so you don’t even need ribbons, tape, velcro or magnets to keep the box closed. See? Clever!
I added some stars cut out with the Stars Framelit dies to these boxes. The new sturdy Under The Tree specialty paper is just divine for making boxes, bags and totes.
We also have some big BIG news about an exciting hostess promotion available until the end of October. Check back from tomorrow for all the news on that one, but in the meantime you might want to go through your diaries and get a Christmas cardmaking workshop organised so you can earn this free bonus. It’s worth it!
And one last thing…
Before I go… if you are free this weekend, come to Paperific and say hello to us on the Stampin’ Up! stand. We’ll have Seasonal Catalogue showbags available, free make & takes and lots of lovely projects to inspire you. I’ll be working on the stand on Saturday and Sunday.
