Today starts Stampin’ Up!’s annual Holiday Extravaganza. It’s also a perfect opportunity to stock up on some products from the the annual catalog! Another great part of this sale is that we get new products to choose from each day and keep saving. From stamp sets to cardstock and accessories, it’s all in the 2018-2019 annual catalog. Below is all the information, so please read carefully because there are three different sales in six days. But remember, the first one starts today.
During the six days, we’ll offer three, 48-hour sales featuring a selection of products from the 2018-2019 annual catalog and all will be at 10% off! Also, each 48-hour sale will feature two product categories (e.g., paper, stamps, ink, etc.). So, when one sale ends, the next sale begins; this cycle will continue until Online Extravaganza is over. By the end, nearly every item from the annual catalog will have been on sale!
Please be aware, all items are limited quantity and once they are gone, they are gone and no longer available at the sale price.
Today I have a very special z-fold birthday surprise card. It was designed by Cindee Wilkinson @ www.justspongeit.com. Her design was originally for a wedding card, however, I changed the paper and included a birthday greeting inside the card. The Designer Series Paper is our Share What You Love Specialty DSP.
Besides the DSP listed above, I used Basic Black Cardstock for the base. I also used the Stitched All Around Bundle which includes the stamp set and coordinating framelits. Additionally, for the sentiment, I stamped with versamark and heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. That gives it a raised and much more vivid impression on the card. Finally, I finished by fussy cutting flower from the Designer Series Paper and tying 1/2″ Black Satin ribbon around card.
I love to take other designs and change it up a bit. See what I can do with it.
First of all, this card I am sharing with you today is a beautiful frosted shimmer. The shimmer does not show through pictures. It features the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is part of the Frosted Floral Suite in the Holiday Catalog. The card is also one of the samples that attendees made at this month’s card class. Furthermore, the paper is “Shimmery” and while you really cannot appreciate it in the photograph, it’s amazing. Seriously, the photos really do not do it justice and all of the paper in the package is simply gorgeous.
So do you see the frosted shimmer? Because of the glare, It may be a bit difficult to see. Create the card using The First Frost Stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies. Both are offered in the First Frost Bundle while saving you 10%. Do you notice the Soft Suede frame is askew? Frame is cut using the Frosted Bouquet dies and attached to sentiment layer using dots of multipurpose liquid glue. It also adds an unexpected dimension to the card. Remember, all project materials can be found under Project Materials at the end of the post.
Also, you will have the opportunity to see so many more samples like this in my 12 Weeks of Christmas holiday promotion.

Beautiful holiday designs are what you will see this year in the form of the new Designer Series Papers. The Holiday Catalog also has so much more but the DSP’s are just gorgeous. If you received a catalog and can’t really see them very well, take a look below at the video from Stampin’ Up! and you will get a better idea of how pretty they are.
Beautiful Holiday Designs Throughout the Catalog
I don’t know how many of them are on your list, but they are all on my list. All the papers are available in my online store along with all the other Holiday Catalog products. Did you notice the festive photography of the All is Bright DSP? The vibrancy and detail are almost so life like, you just want to touch it. The Christmas balls are so elegant and detailed. Similarly with the Santa’s Workshop DSP. I just love those little people. It’s almost like you have to smile and sing when you are crafting.
If you still have not received a Holiday Catalog, please contact me so we can get one sent out to you.
The holiday madness begins with the release of the Holiday catalog today. Yes, today is the day it goes live. I know you are as excited as I am and can’t wait to create your wishlist. It’s probably my second favorite time of year. While there is nothing wrong with another day to celebrate, I really enjoy the brisk weather and beautiful colors the Fall has to offer. First of all, there are so many new stamp sets, papers, accessories and embellishments to check out, it may take you a while to absorb it all and appreciate everything that is in this catalog. Due to the volume of products, it may take you a little longer than you think.
Holiday Madness Begins Today
Yes, it is time for that crazy time of year. No, not back to school shopping but another obession in the form of my to do list of holiday events. It’s not just about presents and days off. For me it’s also about cards and projects and decorating. Everything also has a deadline and it’s almost easy to fall behind if you don’t plan ahead and early. As a result, you certainly won’t get it all done without a plan. It’s a good thing kids go back to school, we need that time to prepare for the weeks and months ahead. I think I’m planning even more projects than I did last year. It’s easy with a catalog like this one because there are more suites and kits that all coordinate together. I love almost all the new products.
Furthermore, if you did not receive a catalog in the mail and would like one, please contact me to arrange getting a catalog sent to you. You can also visit my online store to see all the new products.
