Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

It's such an exciting time of the year when a new Stampin' Up! Catalogue launches!  Have you seen the new catalogue?  It went live yesterday and it is absolutely full of amazing new products! 

Two of my favourite are the Winter Meadow Product Suite and the Deckled Circle Dies.  I love being able to create a round card that stands up. I used the 5 3/8" die and cut out the circle from a piece of cardstock folded in half.  When you get to the fold of the cardstock, stop cutting and you will have a card that opens.  How cool is that!

Isn't this card pretty in Lost Lagoon and the Snowflake Magic Specialty Paper that is part of the suite.  I cut that using the die that is one size smaller than the base.

I'm so excited that the Creativity Abounds Stamp Camp is featuring the Winter Meadow Suite for the next Stamp Camp on October 20-21.  We have so much fun on these stamp camps.  You can register by purchasing the Winter Meadow Product Suite and you will receive a make and take kit with 13 projects plus PDF and video tutorial.  In addition you get access to an exclusive Facebook Group where we share 13 Bonus Projects!  What an amazing deal.  Get more information here.


  1. Score 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock at 5 1/2" and burnish on scoreline to form card base.
  2. Place circle die on card base and cut the circle out - stop cutting when you have a 1 1/2" section at the top - this holds the pieces together.
  3. Cut out specialty paper using Deckled Circle Die (one size smaller than base)
  4. Adhere to the card base
  5. Cut 2nd largest rounded rectangle using Die from Basic White cardstock
  6. Stamp sentiment using Lost Lagoon ink
  7. Cut out two boughs from Lost Lagoon cardstock
  8. Adhere behind sentiment
  9. Cut 12" of ribbon and zig zag behind sentiment
  10. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  11. Adhere Faceted Gems
  12. Cut Basic White cardstock using Deckled Circle Die (one size smaller than base
  13. Stamp sentiment and leaves on circle using Lost Lagoon ink
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.

Now it's time to be inspired by all of the Projects in our Blog Hop!
