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!

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

 

Happy Valentine's Day Video with Awesome Otters

Happy-valentines-day-2022

Happy Valentine's Day!  This sweet little otter Valentine was posted a few weeks ago but I wanted to share the video with the process as a little Valentine gift for you today!

This Valentine was sent off in the mail to two of our granddaughters and with the help of a sentiment from the Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set (English) [158028] and a punched heart from the Heart Punch Pack [151292], I know they will love it!

That sweet and colorful heart print is from the Pattern Party 12" X 12" Host Designer Series Paper [155426] pack.  It is a host reward selection from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. If you have at least $18 in Host Rewards, you get this large pack of paper for FREE.

Let's take a look at the quick video...

Here is the list of the products used on this Stampin' Up! Awesome Otters Valentine Card...

Stampin' Up! Countdown to Christmas 2021- DIY Gift Bag

Stampin-Up-Countdown-to-Christmas-2021-Lisa-Brown-gift-bagHappy Wednesday and welcome to our third project in my Stampin' Up! Countdown to Christmas 2021 with the nice size DIY Christmas gift bag!

Our designer (patterned) paper is really beautiful and perfect for making these bags.  As soon as I finished this one, our granddaughter, Mia, wanted to fill it with little treasures.

I really should make several of these right now!  It never fails that a couple of days before Christmas, I am scurrying around trying to find a bag just this size for a last-minute gift.

Here's the video tutorial so you can see just how easy it is to assemble.

2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag

2021-Stampin-up-christmas-season-card-gift-bagYou are going to love these coordinating 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag!

The card is a fun fold that looks a little more tricky than it actually is and the bag is super simple.  And, the pine cones from the Christmas Season Bundle (English) [156801]are so realistic with the two-step stamping technique on Crumb Cake card stock against the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper [156292] background.  These elements make for a really special project.
