Carols of Christmas Coming August 1

Holidays / Special Days/ Online Classes/ Paper crafting/ Stamping

Stampin' Up!'s new Carols of Christmas coming August 1! This stamp set and coordinating framelits dies will be featured in our holiday catalog but is arriving early so you can get a head start on your holiday projects, like this one!

One of the best thing about these products is they look fabulous with any ink and paper combination. You can use more “traditional” Christmas colors of red and green, or choose something totally different, like the blues above. Maybe you like to send different styles of cards so you can make some of each! The bold greetings in the stamp set let you create eye-catching focal points in your handmade cards.

I know you will want some WOW cards to send out to all your friends and family this year! I am hard at work on a brand new online video class tutorial for this fabulous new bundle.  If you'd like to be among the first to see the details be sure you have subscribed to my email newsletter!  Sign up here and you'll also get this free project tutorial.

In addition to this awesome tutorial and early-bird class release notice for my Carols of Christmas Online Class, you'll also get more great projects, tips, techniques and other valuable information to help you with everything crafty!

As a Stampin' Up! business owner, I was able to purchase this bundle in July and start working on amazing samples for you! Did you know that you can still get this stamp set for free in July, along with $72 of extra free products when you join the Stampin' Up! family? I invite you to check out my team page to see if the fun, friendships, early product release purchase opportunities, extra income, and more just might fill some of your needs!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Online Classes

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

I just love stamp sets that save me time and money…don't you? I have so many things going on that whenever I can cut some corners, I'm all over it! Today's card does just that!

It's made with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle, a stamp set with tons of beautiful images and a coordinating framelit!

This is the perfect solution for me. I can stamp a bunch of birthday cards at once, using different images and I saved money (10%) by purchasing the bundle.

Many of my stamp club and hostesses did the same thing and they also were able to score some additional stampin' rewards with our “We Heart Hosts” June Promotion. It's not too late to take advantage of this promotion. Give me a shout and we can talk about some different ways for you to get these extra rewards!

Oh, before I move on to today's project details, I don't want to forget to share yesterday's post in case you missed it. My NEW Dragonfly Dreams ONLINE Class is here!

OK, now back to today's business! Here are the supplies and instructions, including measurements, for the Happy Birthday Gorgeous project…enjoy! To order any of the supplies, just click on any picture below the instructions.
