For the past couple of days, I’ve been preparing samples for this month’s Christmas Stamp-a-Stack so I decided to share a few of the cards with you. Yes, I know we’re still a few months from Christmas but I thought it would be nice to get a head start on preparing holiday cards. The new Holiday Catalog is filled with some of the most beautiful designer papers and stamp sets so I’ve gotten into the Christmas spirit early!  The biggest problem is deciding which to use first.  I have to share a funny incident from today…my husband looked to see what I was working on and said “no! I’m not ready for Christmas yet!”  Well, I am!!!  
One of my favorite designer series paper sets in the Holiday Catalog is the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP).  The vintage look of the paper brings back many childhood memories so I decided that one of the card sets would showcase the paper.  The card with the “Merry Little Christmas” sentiment was crafted using a design for a gift tag that was a Make & Take from the Stampin’ Up! convention.  When we made the tag, I knew that not only could it be used for a gift tag but it would make a wonderful card.  I have to thank demonstrator Peggy Hovorka in our local Stampin’ Up! group for the “Ho Ho Ho” design.  She shared it with the group and it fits the theme that I selected perfectly.  Of course, the paper with the deer is cute so I had to use a deer in a design.

More Christmas cards are on my agenda but I promise not to ignore Fall & Halloween!  
Some great projects are being planned highlighting the changing of the seasons.
Have a great Labor Day weekend!  I’ll be sharing a new project on Tuesday.
