As with many of our catalogs, the Occasions catalog has it’s share of project kits from Stampin’ Up!. The Made to Bloom Kit makes it possible for you to bloom all year long. In the kit, you will also receive pre-printed elements which allows you to add beautiful color to your cards. The kit also contains a stamp set, accents, stamp pad, stamp block, adhesive backed pearls, card bases and envelopes. Once you complete all the cards, you can store them in the acetate box included or, give them away as a gift.
I love being able to have a box of cards for any occasion. Stampin’ Up! adds new project kits to every catalog each year. When you are new to stamping or have limited time to craft, these kits are a life saver. Being able to have all the products in one box saves time and helps you improve your crafting skills.
Another great product in the Sale-a-Bration catalog is the Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets. They are shimmery foil sheets that look amazing under light. Use them beneath your sentiment, as a background or just as a small accent. No matter how you use them, you won’t be disappointed. When you get your hands on them you will agree that they are amazing. These sheets are available for free in the Sale-a-Bration catalog with a $50 purchase.
The sheets can be used as accents on cards and boxes. A good example is the Pillow Boxes in the video.

Create this perfect Christmas Gift Bag for the holidays this year. Fill it with your goodies or small gifts and surprise that special someone. It’s so much fun to create personal gift bags during the holidays. I love creating personal hand-made packaging in addition to cards and gifts. It’s a sure sign of joy and gift giving during the holiday season. My heart is full of love for crafting. Let them know how much you care.
You can find Santa’s Bags on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog. They are perfect for crafting. First of all, this one is decorated using the tree stamp from Timeless Tidings and Garden Green ink (you can also use any dark green ink that you have on hand). Before stamping the bag, cut a piece of cardstock to insert inside of the bag to prevent ink bleed through and to provide better stamping surface.
To create the tag, I used the Better Together stamp set in the Annual Catalog and Cherry Cobbler ink for the greeting. I also used Garden Green ink for the tree. Stamp off the image onto a different paper and then stamp over the sentiment. Also, sponge the label edge with the Garden Green. Finally, use Cherry Cobbler twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine Trio and wrap around the bag drawstring. The punches that were used are the Everyday Label & 1/8″ handheld.
All of these products are available in my online store. I know you will enjoy having this Christmas gift bag option for any last minute gift giving this holiday season. I always enjoy the faces of everyone that receives my special holiday packaging.
Since Christmas will soon be here, I wanted to share this traditional holiday tag with you. You can create this Into the Woods Gift Tag to use on a gift bag or wrapped package. It’s perfect for all your holiday needs and can come together quickly. I love the fir tree in the Winter Woods stamp set and with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies, it creates a dimensional effect. You can also get these products in a bundle and save 10%.
First of all, just stamp two trees and use the large tree and smaller tree Dies to cut them out. With the tip of your Bone Folder, lift the tree boughs on the smaller cut piece and then attach to the larger tree with Mini Dimensionals. Lastly, add that “little extra” touch, and use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the top tree layer boughs. It’s great to see the effect on the tag.
The tag base is created by cutting two layering ovals using Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks. Stamp the greeting using Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ pad and add some gems around the base. Also, add the various ribbons to complete the traditional Christmas look. I hope these will help you to complete your final packaging and preparations as we close in on Christmas.
You can get all these items from my online store.
First of all, let me say that I love wintry trees and the images they create. The holidays are here and that means creating beautiful hand made projects for your friends and family. One of my favorite bundles is in the Holiday Catalog. The Winter Woods bundle can create such amazing outdoor landscape cards. The Framelits are such a great feature of this bundle because you can use them to create the 3-D woods.
Adding embellishments and bling to projects is key to making your cards special for your loved ones. I always want everyone to know that each card is created with love and purpose. Additionally, the cards are created for each specific person.
Find these products and so much more in the Holiday Catalog. Rather than starting with colors, start with the stamp set you want to use and expand from there. There are a lot of products in the catalog that have caught my attention. So, maybe I should make more than one holiday card this season. I love the wintry trees because you can make them exactly what you want them to be. Additionally, you can create any season while putting your own personal touch into each and every card.
