Joy to the world, it's Holiday Extravaganza at SU!


It is the biggest, bestest sale Stampin' Up! has ever had - it's Holiday Extravaganza! With all kinds of product bundles available from 20% - 50% off the regular price there is something for everyone.This sale is for a limited time, (from November 26th - December 1st,) and sales are limited to product in stock so head over to stampinup.com for all the details.
Myself and the rest of the members of my upline's demonstrator group, (Team Canada,) had our Christmas party last night. We were supposed to bring a homemade Secret Santa gift to exchange, and this is the present I brought. This was a fun project. The base wooden letters are from Michaels and then I merely painted it with acrylic paint and covered the front with various designer papers from the Frosty line. I then sanded down the edges of the paper for a perfect fit and sponged on some Chocolate Chip ink for a slightly distressed look. For the finishing touches I added a Baja Blue and a Kiwi Kiss button from the Designer Button collection and an embossed flower from the Spotlight on Christmas set. TIP: All the stamps from the Spotlight on Christmas set match up with various punches offered by Stampin' Up!. The poinsetta matches up perfectly with the 5-Petal Flower punch.
