Oh my word, Stampin’ Up! nailed it with their 2018 Holiday Catalog. I have been really busy since this catalog came out. The best way for you to see this is with pictures. Below is my favorite box die, the Take-out Treat Box. I cased the catalog, however, I changed the ribbon and it made all the difference in the world to my customers. This was one of the projects from my Holiday Catalog Kickoff Event which was held September 15. I call the box Spooky Sweets Takeout Treats.
I stamped the pieces and then die cut everything. (You can make two boxes from one sheet of cardstock. I stamped the box before I adhered it together with Tear and Tape). After putting the box together, I glued the fence and bat to the box and pop-up words with a Stampin’ Dimensionals. Last I tied the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the box in a bow. The ribbon is gorgeous and the picture does not do it justice.

I wanted to buy this bundle because I fell in love with the fence die and house, decorations (check out the mini bows – the die cuts 6 at a time!!), and sayings. At my August Team meeting everyone made one of the cards I created below using this stamp set.
Balmy Blue Card:
Cherry Cobbler Card:
I used Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, and the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle found on page 13 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Holiday Catalog. I stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Today’s card uses the “extra” diecuts from February’s Paper Pumpkin kit, which I used with a die cut scallop border on this card.
