More Holiday Catalog Previews

The Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow but here are a few more previews to get you excited.

This past Saturday I was at a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and we made these fun projects.  Susan Campfield always has great gatherings for her demonstrators.

This first card uses the Two-Tiered Eclipse technique.  Check out Susan’s post about the technique here.


These cute little guys come from a new stamp and framelit set in the Holiday Catalog.  Check out Susan’s post here about them.  Just a note on them, if you don’t stamp a clean image, this is one time you can’t just flip the paper over.  Check out my snowman.  🙂

And for the last project, it’s using some of the new Quilted Christmas paper from the Holiday catalog and is a fun fold.

We used an 8″ x 8″ piece of Whisper White cardstock to make this.  See below for scoring info.  The diagonals are made using a ruler between the score lines at 4″.  The blue lines fold mountain style and the others are all valley folds.

Cool Treats, day 7

I made this cute little candy purse based on this blog post.  Just like yesterday, I would recommend using brads to hold on the handles because they keep coming off.
