Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue Launch Party

The new Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue and Jan – Feb Sale-a-bration catalogues are both in full swing, so I thought I’d take some time to walk you through and show some of the projects I have created with these new products.

Here are the 4 cards I created:

I love using card sketches to create cards. Most of these cards were created using old favourites – but one of them was inspired by the TGIF Sketch Challenge #351

To see all the details of these cards you can watch my video below.

Awesome Otters – Sneek Peek Card

I took a break from creating Christmas cards to dip into a box of new pre-order product ( these items will be available to customers on Jan 3rd – if you can’t wait that long then contact me about becoming a demonstrator so you can order these items today).

The stamp set used to create this punny card is called Awesome Otters and is one of the selections from the upcoming sale-a-bration pamphlet. Just one of many great offerings.

The background of this card was created by blending Pacific Point Ink onto a Basic White cardstock, then dripping Isopropyl Alcohol (91%) on to it to make the mottled look. The DSP used is a soon to be released paper from the Sweet Talk Suite in the Jan – June 2022 catalogue. The banner was also created using a die from the Sweet Heart Dies that are a part of the suite.

Peaceful Prints DSP Gift Bag

For some of you it may be too early to think about Christmas – but I actually try to get the bulk of my Christmas cards made in the summer when I have time to enjoy the creative process. Then I can use the holidays to just spend time with friends and family. Right now I have even more reason to play with Christmas product – the 2nd part of Sale-a-bration 2021 is happening right now! Which means for every $60cdn purchase made at Stampin’ Up! right now you can earn FREE product.

This fabulous Peaceful Prints 12X12 DSP is just one of the great offerings.

I am usually a Designer Series Paper hoarder – but I am running out of room on my shelves, so time to start crafting with it. During my weekly FB live today I demonstrated how to create this sweet gift bag – perfect for holding some handmade cards or a fabulous little gift.

To create the bag you simply need 2 pieces of DSP (any size 6X6 – 12X12 will do) I used a 10X10 pieces.

Then I scored the top edges at 1-1/2″ and I scored the other 3 edges of each piece at 2″.

Next I cut out the two bottom squares on one of my pieces. and I cut the two bottom score lines on the other piece.

Glue the two pieces together at the bottom flap, and then fold up the box and glue the sides together.

For a better understanding of these instructions you can check out my video below.

To create the cute label on the bag I used the largest Seasonal Label Die, the Peaceful Deer stamp set for the sentiment and the Deer Punch and Peaceful Prints DSP for the images. You’ll have to watch my video to see the trick I used to punch out the reverse deer image. It’s brilliant!

Product List
Paper Trimmer
$34.00
Simply Scored
$41.00

I hope you love creating these bags in all different sizes as much as I do. They are quick, easy and sturdy.
