Stampin' Up! designed this stamp with a clever little tool to help with lining up the different layrers.  But I was still be challeneged with lining it up.

Hope today's video helps you to have the perfect wreath.

Window Panel

Today's WOW Moment Video shows you a quick tip to create a perfect window panel.  The Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set in the Holiday Catalog looks lovely on a front of a card that looks like a door.

I found it hard to get the Window Panel cut out with the square framelits perfectly.  So I came up with this quick and easy tip to line it up.

Let me know if this tip helps you create the perfect window panel.

Come back tomorrow for my What's up with Stamping Up! Video Series, as I share an amazing tip that is helping me line up the Wondrous Wreath.

The Final Holiday Catalog Countdown Post

Denise  Wetherbee

In less than one hour, you can order from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Our final sample comes from Denise Wetherbee from Cory, PA

She used the beautiful Specialty Designer Paper called All is Calm.  You knew I would love this paper as it has lots of blue in it.

She also used the stamp set Endless Wishes which is a photopolymer set with 19 stamps.  This stamp set was released last year as a limit time set, which sold out very fast.

I am so thankful they have it back in out inventory.

So I need to hear from you, did you like the 24 Hour Countdown to the Holiday Catalog?

Was it helpful to see lots of samples?

Would you like to see me do something like this for other catalogs just before they are released?

Remember in less then an hour use Hostess Code 3D2ACNBP on a $50 or more order in my Online Store and I will send you a free pack of Frosted Sequins.

Holiday Catalog Countdown Continues

Mary Ann Dietz

Mary Ann Dietz created this card using the new Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  

This is a new folder in the Holiday Catalog on page 15.  This is a great folder to use to add an interesting border around your card.

Mary Ann also used The Newborn King stamp set.  This set, along with several other stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog, feature a verse for the inside and outside of your card.  

I like that feature as usually I don't have something to stamp on the inside and I personally don't like my handwriting.

Only three more posts and it will be time for you to order from the Holiday Catalog.  

Do you have your list ready?

What is the first item you want to get?

Remember spend $50 in my Online Store up until September 10, 2014 and use Hostes Code 3D2ACNBP, and I will send you a free pack of Frosted Sequins to add sparkle to your Holiday Cards.
