2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Crafting Kits

Christmas-Kits-LiveStampin Up has two great 2022 Christmas crafting kits currently in the online store and are only available while supplies last!

These two kits have everything you need to create some great projects that you can use this holiday season.

Cozy-bright-kit

One is a Christmas card kit called Cozy & Bright Kit (English) [160338] with a cinnamon and orange cider theme that's usually associated with this joyous season. It would be a great invitation for an open house or it would make a fun Christmas card.  Your recipients would love it.

Although the project looks really involved, difficult to put together, and a like a really over-the-top card, it's very simple. And, as with all of our Stampin Up kits, there are step-by-step instructions with pictures which is always a plus.

Christmas-Gifting-Kit

The other kit is called the Christmas Gifting Kit [160342]. It's a kit with all the supplies to make nine easy tags with a little pocket card that attaches to the tag with a piece of twine.

Tuck a little cash inside, a coupon, a gift card, or anything you'd like. I think these would be great to hang on your Christmas tree with a little cash or candy tucked inside for young visitors during the holidays.

You can even use it for a Christmas cookie exchange where you can tuck the recipe in the pocket and attach the tag to your little package of baked goods.

Let's take a look at the LIVE video from Thursday night where you can see how easy the assembly can be.

Here are the links to the kits and the scissors used in the video.  Order some for your friends, too, and have a fun night of crafting!

Product List

Have fun crafting and creating with these two 2022 Christmas crafting kits from Stampin' Up!

Easy Techinque and a Fun Fold Card with Soft Seedlings

Soft-seedlings-card-baby-wipeFrom last week's YouTube Premiere, here's a fun fold card and the baby wipe technique with the Soft Seedlings stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.

This technique has been a while for a WHILE!  It's been almost that long since this has been used on a card or any project of mine!  It's so simple!  All you need is a stamp, baby wipe, ans assorted ink refills.

Baby-wipe-technique-soft-seedlingsAnd, even though you may use the same colors each time, your project will look different due to how much and the way you apply the drops of ink to the baby wipe.

Here's the recording of the Premiere from last week so you can create it yourself!  Be sure to add this beautiful Soft Seedlings stamp set to your order!

Lisa's Inklings:

Fun-fold-baby-wipe-technique-soft-seedlingsYou could also add another piece of designer paper to the inside of the accordion piece shown above.  I think that I will do that!
