Morning crafters !
Yesterday may have been 1st July, with all Stampin' Up! fanatics were eagerly awaiting being able to order from the ***NEW*** Annual 2014/15 catalogue, but it's also the start of the festive season !!
Yes, to many people we are a crazy breed, but most crafters I know will also soon start thinking about their festive preparation. It's the time of the year we send many, many more cards than normal and that requires lots of crafting time.
Following successful groups in previous years, my monthly Christmas card groups start again this month. I am always looking for new locations and now working part time, I've been able to follow up on lots of ideas on my long to-do list.
Many demonstrators are now starting their regular Christmas clubs and, prior to the launch of our new Seasonal catalogue in a couple of months, we are all being very creative using items from the Annual catalogue for festive ideas.
Also, Stampin' Up! have extended the sales period for the 2013 Autumn / Winter catalogue carryover items while supplies last, until 27th August, so you can do some early shopping for the upcoming festive season.
Here are a couple of cards from last years classes to give you some ideas .....
This card uses the Festive Flurry stamp set #131778 (W) @ £35.95 or #131781 (C) @ £28.95. Combine this with the Festive Flurry Framelits dies #132193 @ £20.95 and simply pop through your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439 and you can make some beautiful quick and easy cards. Festive greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments #130042 (W) @ £32.95 or #120024 (C) @ £25.95 is from the Anunal catalogue and excellent value for a very versatile set of 24 sentiment stamps.
A similar card but this time using Everything Eleanor stamp set #131987 (W) @ £32.95 or #124164 (C) @ £25.95 for 8 stamps and Apothecary Accents Framelits #127003 for 4 dies. The embellishment uses Simply Pressed Clay #130685 mixed with Cherry Cobbler re-inker #119788, and pressed into Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Moulds #131272 @ £7.25 for 2 designs, and finished with some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding #120992 @ £6.25 for 9.1m.
