My mammoth month of scrapbooking has come to an end. In just four weeks I completed three albums encompassing two Spring Breaks making for one happy momma. Feels so good to know those memories are now in books.
And as much as I enjoyed putting those three scrapbook albums together, I have to admit I’m now more than a little happy to have time to make some cards. Today’s card below was for Freshly Made Sketches 306.
I’ve had this Chicken Wire Die-Cut for the longest time and worked perfectly with this background when I was looking for that extra little something. All of course topped off with a beautiful Prima Flower.
Come Friday you’ll be able to add this year’s Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! to your viewing and shopping pleasure. Here is a small taste of what to expect…
There are soooo many delights in this Holiday Catalog my bank account is already quivering with anticipation of being depleted!
Once the children are back in school next week I’ll be sending out catalogs to all those who requested to be kept on my mailing list. Please message me if you would like to confirm or add your name and address to the list.

In case my post from yesterday of the early release Carols of Christmas and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies piqued your interest, here is a Stampin’ Up! video sharing the details from their sample cards.
Isn’t that shaker card in blue just divine? Oh my goodness, please let me know if you’d like to book some time to spend a day or two getting all your Christmas cards made now, over the summer, so you are ahead of schedule! Seriously how good would THAT feel?
As a teaser for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog which will be released next month (September 1st), just for this month of August Stampin’ Up! are offering an early-bird bundle on the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.
Here are some of the fabulous Stampin’ Up! samples and the beautiful stamps within the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set.
Below are the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies along with all the prices should you wish to buy individually or as a bundle. The choice is yours but thinking ahead, I think it would be cheaper to buy the bundle now as I’m sure you’ll only regret it later if you don’t!
Looking at those thinlets, it’s really only the two Christmas ornaments dies that you couldn’t use all year. On saying that, I’m now wondering if a lot of those smaller ornament images were die-cut, if you could in fact use them on mass to create a different type of background. Just a thoughtie…
