Have you seen the beautiful project kit in the holiday catalogue, “Christmas Countdown“? This kit includes enough supplies to create 25 mini boxes, plus a sturdy outer box to hold them all. Fill the boxes with small gifts, and let the countdown begin!

While you can complete the project using the Christmas Countdown stamp set, creative demonstrators and crafters have come up with many other ways to use the kit. Here are some beautiful alternative projects using holiday-themed papers and products.

You can also use the kit to count down to a different event, such as Thanksgiving, Halloween, or a special birthday. Check out these alternatives!

One clever demonstrator decided to decorate the boxes with punch art to count down to a family trip to Disney World!

Or, you can simply decorate it with some of your favourite papers and let it be a year-round decor/organization item.

The sliding boxes/drawers have a front and back, so you can get two countdowns in one kit – use it to count down to Halloween, then flip the drawers around and use the countdown to Christmas side.

The possibilities are endless! Contact me today to order yours, or shop 24/7 at my online store. Be sure to show me a photo of your completed kit in the comments. I’d love to see what you use it for!

Happy Stampin’!

Just in time for the holiday crafting season, Stampin’ Up!’s brand new, redesigned trimmer is now available! Here are all the facts you need to know about this terrific new tool.

Price: $34 compared to previous trimmer at $41

Blades: badass and ready for business. Look how much smaller the old blades (left) are, compared to the new ones! Your new trimmer includes a scoring blade and a cutting blade, and each has a point on the handle for precise measurements (no more guessing where the blade is within the handle!).

Size: 15-3/8 x 8″; a little larger than the previous trimmer, and much more sleek in design.

Shape: Rectangular, for easy and convenient storage. There’s even a hanging hook!

Measurements: The main body of the trimmer, and the fold-out arm, include both metric and imperial measurements. The ruler guide includes only imperial measurements. Notice that the fold-out arm has no ‘gap’ in measurements, as the previous trimmer did!

If you’re used to the old trimmer, you may notice that this one has some lovely improvements: a larger base plate, longer extension, more space to the right of the ruler guide for cutting smaller strips (and a better rail for keeping the paper straight while doing so).

While it was certainly challenging to be without a trimmer in our product line for the past several months, I am grateful that Stampin’ Up! took all the time they needed to be sure that the replacement product would be as high-quality as possible. Demonstrators are describing the new trimmer as “sturdy, yet lightweight,” “well-made and stable”, and “worth waiting for”! Now you can order your own, via my online store or by contacting me. I just know you’re going to love it!

Happy Stampin’!

I promised that I would show you all the amazing cards I received in the Christmas card swap I participated in recently. Here they are! I am so inspired by everyone’s creativity and talent.

I love the combination of different sets and textures for this card by Adrienne. The bare branches really give that wintry feel!

The Feels Like Frost suite is one of my favourites, and I love that Ann has used a fun Z-fold on this gorgeous card. I may just have to CASE this one for my upcoming Christmas class!

How fun is this cute little elf stamp playing Peekaboo? A great combination of products by Barb!

Love the photorealistic images of the Feels Like Frost DSP, and the Layered Leaves embossing folder is a perfect companion!

 

Another beautiful fancy fold card, this one starring the Toile Tidings DSP and Still Scenes bundle. Did you notice that Caroline spattered white on the front to make it look like snowfall?

This gorgeously coloured cardinal contrasts perfectly with the Feels Like Frost DSP. Stunning!

Love these charming, smiling snowmen from the Snowman Season bundle!

Gold embossing powder makes a perfect companion to the gold foil accents of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP – great bling, Colleen!

The Christmas Crowd stamp is a fun one to colour!

The Snow Front stamp set is a perfect complement to Waterfront. These soft-brush images will help you build a beautiful scene, as shown here by Elke!

Gorgeous cards don’t have to be complicated! A wonderful use of embellishments here by Jean to create a lovely effect!

 

I searched and searched for this “Jingle” stamp before realizing the letters are die-cut using the Hand-Lettered Prose dies. And I love the wintry look of the Nature’s Roots dies!! What a great way to put products from the annual catalogue to Christmas-y use!

Silver foil sheets are a great companion for the sparkling stars bundle – what a gorgeous card by Madeleine!

Terrific colouring and a fun snowy effect here by MiRan. The Brick and Mortar embossing folder is so handy for holiday projects!

This card is adorable and charming from the outside, but even more exciting on the inside ….

 

….what a great shadowbox!!

 

Sharon shows us that the Toile Christmas stamp can be coloured in alternative colours as well. I love the effect with the Puff Paint in the background!

A simple yet striking card by Shirley!

This fun and textured card by Susan features just the right amount of blingy gold foil!

And, here’s the card I created for the swap:

Those pearls are hand-coloured with my Blends markers!

Last weekend I attended another fun and busy meeting of the Vancouver Island Stampin’ Up! demonstrators for a delightful day full of crafts, friends, and learning. I participated in a Christmas card swap (stay tuned to see the beautiful cards I received!), and as usual there were several make-and-take projects.

This fun gift item by Barb uses the Cup of Christmas bundle and holds two mini Tic-Tac containers. What a great stocking stuffer!

This gorgeous card by Carolyn shows how you can use a non-Christmas stamp set (Good Morning Magnolia) to create a Christmas card. We used aqua painters to create a whitewash on the flowers, then sponge-daubed Cherry Cobbler ink to create the red centres. I’ll be demonstrating this technique in an upcoming video, so stay tuned!

This charming moose card by Erica is so fun and simple! The snow in the background is from Peaceful Boughs.

Susan showed us how to make this terrific gift card holder. Perfect Christmas gift! The Wrapped in Plaid suite makes decorating the outside quick and easy.

Christmas cards in non-traditional colours are one of my favourite things, and this card by Adrienne showcases that perfectly!

 

This card by Lynne is a great way to show off DSP, and a terrific way to use up scraps. Great layout!

And finally, this detailed card by Karen features a really cool technique – can you guess how the magic is done?

Which one of these cards is your favourite? Drop me a comment below and let me know!
