Cookie Cutter Christmas Project – Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue

Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue Launch

I am now heading into the busiest part of the Stampin’ Up! season. There is lots to do as I try to share as much as I can to inspire everyone in the leadup to Christmas.  Last Saturday and Sunday were my Christmas launches.  They were so much fun and we made two projects that I want to share with you.    Each project was simple and easy – I am not always good at simple designs..  I had two stamping ‘virgins’ come along who had a lot of fun.

The Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle has been the most popular product from the new catalogue and you can see why.  There is also a Halloween version which is even cuter but I am not really into Halloween.

We also created a second card which featured the Lovely as a Tree and Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets as the background.  I love that I can use non-Christmas stamps on Christmas cards – means we get even more use out of our supplies.  This card was a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of a card by Kim Jolley, which I loved.

Treat Bags for everyone

As always, everyone receive a treat bag but this time they were a little different as they held everyone’s Stealing Secret Santa present in those little ‘fairy envelopes’.  I posted a short Facebook Live video on how to make these cute envelopes and cards (2 x 2″).   Each piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP – double sided patterned paper) was cut to 3-3/4″ square and then scored at 1-7/8 using the Envelope Punch Board.  This was a very quick project – about 2 mins per envelope.

Also I dry embossed each of the treat bags using Stampin’ Up!’s new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder (6 x 6″) which leave a very detailed deep textured imprint.
