Starting Tomorrow - the Holiday Catalogue is LIVE

Hello my friends
Ready For Christmas stamp set and Christmas Staircase framelits - pg 6&7 in the Holiday Catalogue

Christmas is right around the corner - well - almost!  Because September begins tomorrow so that means YOU can start ordering from the Holiday Catalogue!

I just created these 2 cards for a swap with other Canadian demo friends and trust me, you WANT just about everything there is to order from the new Holiday Catalogue.  (*hint hint - in the second, white-on-white card, I used embossing paste to simulate snowbanks.  If you dump your Dazzling Diamonds glitter onto the paste while it is wet, you get beautiful, sparkling snow.  Love, love, LOVE this easy way to create totally gorgeous snow!)

The Holiday Catalogue will be posted on my blog tomorrow and there is so much goodness within.

Oh my friends - I have been DYING for you to see all the great new things in this new Holiday Catalogue.  You will love, love, love, love them, I swear.

Don't wait to order (we all know some of the goodies will go on backorder because they will be SO popular!).  So order yours now!

Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop - Sneak Peek of Night in Bethlehem

Hello Friends
The Holiday Catalogue is going to go live in 10 days and I CAN'T WAIT!  There are so many gorgeous goodies in it!  Do you need your own copy of the catalogue?  If you live in Canada and don't have a demonstrator already, contact me and we'll see about getting one in your hands.  

Today we have another Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop for you. You've either started at my blog - Cynthia Millan - or else hopped in from somewhere else.  Either way, make certain you check out all the bloggers (list at bottom of this post) so you can share some of the crafting joy that we've posted today.   
Card #1:  Both Bethlehem Village Diecuts plus a Sentiment

In among all the goodness in this Holiday Catalogue is something I have been longing for...a Christian Christmas bundle!  That's right my friends.  You heard me.  We have stamps for  the Christmas Star, a Mary&Joseph&Donkey, a Shepherd&Lamb, a Bethlehem village. AND FRAMELITS to cut them all out TOO!
Card #1 - side view

I have already seen a TON of beautiful projects using these items, but today I wanted to show you that you can create a very quick, very easy and super effective whole set of cards using this bundle. Card #1.  This is a super fast card using just the 2 different Bethlehem village thinlits and Whisper White cardstock.  Adhere the back one flat onto the Night of Navy card and raise up the diecut in the foreground using dimensionals.  The sentiment is heat embossed using versamark and white embossing powder and there you have it.  Done. 
Card #2 - Emboss a sentiment inside the negative space left by the larger Bethlehem diecut

What's so super cool about this is that the "garbage" generated by cutting out the 2 Bethlehem village thinlits, leaves behind negatives that can be used to make equally beautiful and super quick cards!  Check out card #2: The larger village cutout generates a big open stencil (the white rectangle with the village cut out of the centre).  Adhere this to a piece of Night of Navy just 1/4" wider and longer than the white piece, then emboss a sentiment into the middle.  Glue this whole piece to a white card and there you have it.  A second card using the "garbage" leftover from the first!
Card #3 - Adhere the stencil from the smaller village diecut and emboss a sentiment above it.

Which leads me to Card #3.  Similar idea, even easier.  Onto a Night of Navy card, adhere the stencil that remains after cutting out the smaller village.  Emboss the Christmas Star and a sentiment above them and voila.  A third, equally beautiful, equally fast and just as gorgeous card! 

Really, does it get much easier (or faster?) to create 3 FANTASTIC cards!   

I know you will love the Holiday Catalogue as much as I do.  Take a look at the fun projects all my friends have created for you to see (The list of participants is below).  And feel free to leave comments.  We are suckers for a kind word of encouragement   :)

Remember, if you live ANYWHERE in Canada you can order Stampin' Up! supplies from me.  Feel free to visit my online store HEREIf you don't already have a demonstrator and you'd like a Holiday Catalogue, you can contact me and we'll get you set up.  I want to help you achieve the Christmas creating joy that will bring a smile to your face!

Have fun hopping along my friends and as always, my wish for you is that you enjoy the rest of your day!  Happy Stamping and God Bless,    Cynthia   <><
