Dashing Deer Brings Hapiest Christmas Wishes

I love Stampin’ Up!’s Dashing Deer Bundle! This is a quick and easy card to make. All the die cuts were cut at the same time from one 3 1/2″ square piece of Designer Series Paper.

Santa’s Sleigh – Oh, My!

Santa's Sleigh was the first bundle on my list from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday catalog.  I cased this tag directly from page 25 and all I can say is the picture does not due it justice. It is cute in the catalog, however, it is STUNNING when made.

I have so many ideas swirling in my head right now, can't wait to play with this set again. You can purchase this set on September 1st when the Holiday catalog goes live for customers.
