Festive fun in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue

Hi everyone! I hope that you are all having an incredible week - I have been flat out but it's been amazing! I have a new niece that arrived on the 8th of September - so be prepared for lots of little baby girl layouts! 

I am currently busy working on lots of samples using all of the awesome products in the brand new Holiday Catalogue (so keep your eye on the blog) but at the moment I wanted to show you some of my favourite festive products in the Annual Catalogue - the Festival of Trees stamp set (and the coordinating Tree punch) and the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper. 

First up are the cards and gift tags I made using the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree punch.

This stamp set is so versatile and it looks great both in traditional and in non traditional colours. Not only does it come with a coordinating tree punch, it also uses layers - so you can add tinsel and lights. There are also stars, spots and birds. You can see that I stamped the stars in white on vellum to create my own patterned paper! 

Next up we have the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper - this paper is awesome, in traditional colours and very easy to use for all of your holiday creations. 

You can see that I created a range of different cards with this paper. Some are simple using punched paper, a few embellishments and punches, which others take a bit more effort. The card with the spots took a bit more time - I punched out circles out of different papers, stuck them down and ran them through the BigShot with the chevron embossing folder. 

My favourite card that I made has to be this one - an easel card. I punch out some of the trees in different sizes and I then created a tree window and backed it with vellum. Using a flameless battery operated tea light candle I was able to create this awesome look. I added some embellishments and it was done! I love the look! 

So there you have it, some of my favourite holiday items from the Annual Catalogue. Until the end of September, if you use the hostess code US2HH2J6 and spend over $75.00 I'll send you a little gift. Visit my online store and have all these products delivered direct to your door! Have a great day - it's almost the weekend!! L xx
