Christmastime is Here

Filed under: Projects — November 5, 2019 @ 2:44 pm

Here are some more Christmas Rose projects.  Of course, I had to make my purse from the new Designer Series Paper.  I’ll fill these with the cards I made – just wait until my next post for my favorites.

Here’s an easy way to make multiples:  Use the gold-edged cards & envelopes.  Just fussy cut or die cut the large rose clusters from the paper.

And here are a few more projects from Stampin’ Up! artists:

Only available while supplies last, you will want to add this fun suite to your collection.  I would at least get the paper – it is so beautiful.  I’m getting several packages myself!

Happy crafting,

Christmas Time is Here and Trimmer Too

Filed under: Projects — November 1, 2019 @ 7:48 am

Just look at everything you can get in this brand new suite!

First the stamp set – just wow.

And the dies:

Next the Designer Paper.  I would grab a few packages of this right away.  It has beautiful gold metallic accents and I predict will be the first thing to sell out.  There is also some gorgeous gold ribbon and embellishments.

Here are just a few project you can make with the Christmastime is Here suite.

Did you notice the rose bracelet that is part of the suite?  I love it!

And the new Stampin’ Up! trimmer is finally available too!

You might want to run right over to my online shop!  Or if you want a discount on all your products, add them to your demonstrator starter kit.
