Sneak Peak into the Holiday Catalog – Greetings From Santa

Personally, I think it’s hold onto your seat because the Holiday Catalog that goes live September 1st is awesome.  I’m working on some projects for a small, local craft fair (called Chief Fuller Day) on September 4th and will be sharing some of them during the next few weeks.

Just so you know how crazy I am, I’m also working as a Volunteer in Prevention, aka VIP (ha ha) inspecting properties in our mountain community for defensible space around their homes.  The program is under the leadership of Cal Fire, the state of California’s fire department.  Long story but well worth the 4 hrs/day pounding the pavement.

Then I’m chairman of the awesome annual Spaghetti Dinner fund raiser at our local Fire Department on September 3rd.  No pressure.

In the meantime, I stamp.  I think I’ve shared this shirt before:

I make stuff...(cause I get sad if I don't)
I make stuff…(cause I get sad if I don’t)


That’s my motto because truly, if I go several days without stamping I do get a bit ‘off balance’.

Now to today’s quick and pretty easy project.

Supplies:  Real Red and Whisper White card stocks, Big Shot, Detailed Santa Thinlits dies* and the Greetings from Santa stamp set*.     *Both will be found in the new Holiday Catalog.

Once I had my card stock out and cut to size, and my Big Shot set up and ready to go, the card took ten minutes to make!

Big Shot & Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies

Die cut the card stock, attach to card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, stamp the greeting and you’re done!  Wham!  Bam!  Woohoo–done!

If you’re wondering how I have this stamp set and dies — plus a few others! — that’s a perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  We get to pre-purchase a month before a new catalog is released so we can prepare samples and plan classes using the new products.  Oh-what-fun!  If you’ve ever entertained the thought of becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator yourself, give me a call or send me an email and we can talk.  I love what I do and have loved it for over 20 years now!  You can also find some information here.
