Swap Card Sunday – Santa’s Sleigh

Swap Card Sunday

It’s time for another edition of Swap Card Sunday.  This week I’m sharing cards that feature the Santa’s Sleigh Bundle from the Holiday Catalog.  I’ll admit, the photos in the catalog really didn’t excite me.  However, now that I’ve seen samples, I’m quickly becoming a fan!

What do you think of this fun bundle?  What will you make?  Besides these cards, I can imagine it would work great for a scrapbook layout or a home decor project.  I also love the tags pictured on the bottom of page 25 of the catalog.

As usual, I’m sharing an assortment of cards I received through a couple of demonstrator swaps a couple of months ago.

Season of Gratitude

It’s definitely a Season of Gratitude.  I know my friends in Canada celebrated Thanksgiving last week.  Ours here in the US is just a month away.  Why is it that we focus on gratitude in the fall?

If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you’ve probably received your October Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you’re not a subscriber, I thought I’d tease you a little.

This month’s Season of Gratitude kit was absolutely adorable!  From the fall-colored sequins, to the printed envelopes, to the die-cut leaves, it was an adorable kit!

I know that some of you have asked me to show you how to make a shaker card.  Well, this month’s kit is perfect for you!

Get a Season of Gratitude Kit!

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit that is mailed out mid-month to subscribers.  Once the kits are shipped, you can’t order them from Stampin’ Up!  Active subscribers are able to order kit refills while supplies last.  But, there’s another way to get these kits!  I always have a few extras on-hand.  If you’d like one of these kits, please shoot me an email at [email protected] and I’ll be happy to give you the details on how to get your hands on one!  You can also use the “contact me ” feature on my blog as well.  Unfortunately, I’m only able to sell the kits to those of you located in the US.

Now, as you probably have gotten used to, I always publish a tutorial and video for projects I make and share!  Well, Stampin’ Up! has done all of the hard work for me!  A step-by-step tutorial with photos is included in the kit.  And, I’ve shared their official Paper Pumpkin video below!

Swap Card Sunday – Greetings From Santa

Swap Card Sunday

I hope you’ve been enjoying my Swap Card Sunday series.  This week we transition to Christmas swap cards!  Several of you specifically asked to see ideas featuring the Greetings from Santa Bundle.  So, that’s the first batch I’m sharing!

One idea that isn’t included in this batch of cards created by other demonstrators, is a shaker card.  This die is PERFECT for shaker cards.  I think I’ll have to share one with you soon!
