REMEMBER – 99.99% of the time, Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry the patterned paper over into the next catalogue – so the two holiday ones should retire at the end of December, the rest at the end of May.  So if you are thinking about them at all, why not get them and save?

You can get all of one pattern or mix and match – there is also no limit to the number of these you purchase. (Meaning you can buy 6 and get 2 free, buy 9 and get 3 free, etc.)

My Favourite Items from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue!

The following is a list of My Favourite Things NEW in the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  It can be a tough job to narrow down my favourites with so many new products. However, I’ve managed to narrow this down to my Top 3 Favourite Items from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue!

Tags & Trimming Bundle, pg 15

 (Wood Mount item 146061 / $105.25) OR (Clear Mount item 146062 / $92.50)  

Oh, how I have missed having a Stampin’ Up! die for a pillow box.  However, these dies go beyond just a pillow box (small gifts, stocking stuffers, treats).  You can transform the pillow box into a stocking with dashing paper crafting personality.  The additional die shapes in the set and coordinating stamps will be wonderful on a variety of projects.  Save 10% when you purchase the dies and stamp set as a bundle!

Snowflake Sentiments Bundle p. 35

(wood-mount item #146052 | $93.50) OR (clear-mount item #146053 | $81.00) 

This year my favourite Christmas stamp set is Snowflake Sentiments.  Who cares if we celebrate Christmas in the warmth of summer – I love those snowflakes! Don’t you love the layering of the sweet snowflake border?  With a few snips the snowflakes can stand alone, too. The font and sentiments couldn’t be yummier!  Purchase the dies & stamp set as a bundle and save 10%.

Watercolour Christmas Stamp Set

(Wood Mount, item 144835 / $44.00) OR (Clear Mount, item 144838 / $31.00)

This kit immediately jumped out at me for it’s clean design and “font-a-licous” stamp set.  It looks amazing as a focal point and it also coordinates with the Watercolour Christmas Project Kit, featuring 20 quick and easy greeting cards.

Happy World Card Making Day

We didn’t come up with World Card Making Day, but we are thrilled that it’s a thing! It’s a day dedicated to doing what you love most—making handmade cards! It celebrates the creativity and personal connection handmade cards create between loved ones, and it’s a great time to  make your own cards to send to family and friends.

History of World Card Making Day 

Cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years, playing a role as a thoughtful gift all the way to a necessary part of proper etiquette. Consider, if you will, the calling card of the Victorian era, a term that has become so ubiquitous that the signature element of a bomb-maker or a criminal is said to be their ‘calling card’. A small piece of paper bearing ones name and often a decoration of some kind, the calling card (Also known as a visiting card) was presented to the servants of a household that it might be delivered to the masters of the house to announce visitors.

It was this era of propriety that also developed the concept of a dance card, a card specifically carried by women to fill out with the names of the men they intended to dance with that evening. After all, with so many interested parties it just made sense to keep track of them so that you could, in earnest, indicate that your dance card was full and thus politely decline an interested suitor.

Calling Cards, Dance Cards, Business Cards, Greeting Cards, RSVP Cards, there are a million and more types of cards and could there be anything more exciting than learning to make your own? World Card Making Day encourages you to do just that.

How to Celebrate World Card Making Day

This year the world celebrates the day on 7 October, but one day wasn’t enough for Stampin’ Up!. For ten days (1–10 October), you can get 15% off Notecards & Envelopes and select stamp sets. Each of these Stamp Set also coordinates with our Patterned Paper and for the month of October you can purchase 3 Packs of Patterned Paper and get the 4th pack free. Learn more HERE

These items will help you  celebrate the best hobby of all—cardmaking! The best way to celebrate World Card Making Day is, of course, to make a card! The only limit to your cards is your imagination, so let your creativity fly and send your friends and family personalized cards on World Card Making Day!
