One of the best stamp sets in the new catalogue is Fabulous You.
We will be working on our embossing skills with this card.

Kellie Gettelfinger (Always Stampin Videos) demonstrated how to make a Twisted Greeting Card. It also doubles as a gift card.
I love making boxes and I really like everything to match so when I found the One Sheet Wow Tutorial by Kellie I had to give it a go. I did make a few minor adjustments but I was thrilled with the result.

We will continue with our Christmas cards. The Ornament Keepsake set will get used to make these simple but elegant cards.

I couldn't resist making a Christmas Twisted Greeting Card.
Lesson 67 dates are October 2, 3, 9, 10 and 14.

A Decoration or Two

I'm sure that you have all seen the Christmas Decoration on the front of the Holiday Catalogue. When I finished making it I decided to try a few others. They are time consuming but quite easy when you have the Ornament Keepsake Bundle which includes the stamps and the framelits. I even made a box for one of them.

 This one didn't take quite so long because I used Designer Series Paper instead of stamping all the images.
The Snow Flurry Bigz Die was used in the centre of two of the decorations and this lesson's Christmas cards.

I am a huge fan of France Martin (Francestamp). I had a great time with her Gated Card Tutorial. Here are my versions.


Lesson 66 dates are Sept 18, 19, 25, 26 and 30.

New Catalogues

Yesterday the new Stampin' Up Catalogues went live. Let me know if you haven't got your copies. You can click on the sidebars and see both as well.
I have been having a great time using some of the new products. In  Lesson 65 we will be using the new Apothecary Accents Framelits ( 127012 $45.95 p 191) with Layered Labels (127072 $46.95 p 103).

We will be starting our Christmas cards with the Scentsational Season Bundle (129946 $58.50 p16).

We will also be using our retired DSP to make these stunning gift bags.

Paper bows seem to be all the rage. Francestamp has some fabulous YouTube videos on these bows.
Lesson dates are Sept 4, 5, 11, 12, 16.
