Carols of Christmas Sampler – Great Gift Idea!

Hey stampers! I have a great gift idea for you today.

Carols of Christmas Sampler - Great Gift Idea

This Carols of Christmas Sampler would make such a perfect handmade gift! It’s easy to assemble and, if you get started now, BEFORE the holidays sneak up on you, you’ll have much more time to ENJOY the season! 🙂

The Carols of Christmas Bundle is available as an “early release” Holiday Catalog item so why not grab it today and save 10%.  The stamp set and thinlits dies are also sold individually.

I’ve included instructions, including measurements, and a supply list. Everything is available at my online store.  In addition, don’t forget there are still lots of items in the Clearance Rack, with discounts up to 60%!
