ESAD Australasian Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

How exciting a new Holiday Catalogue to play in - with so many Christmas card and gift ideas to fall in love with! This hop is huge with 32 participants - I'm not surprised its a great, amazing and inspiring 56 pages!

I love the Stampin' Up Kits - they make creating quick and easy with a guaranteed great result - this Christmas is no exception! If you popped by a few weeks ago you would have seen the Be Merry Rosette Ornament kit - NO?  well you can see them HERE.

The Watercolor Christmas Project Kit

The cards in this kit take only minutes to assemble, thanks to preprinted elements that look like you watercoloured them by hand. Coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set (sold separately).

Creating Tips - Stamp everything first before you pull the pieces apart to make it easier. I also used my Stamp-A-M-Jig for perfect placement.


Kit includes:
* 20 card bases, 5 each of 4 designs, folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)
* Envelopes with gold foil liners
* Cardstock
*Printed die-cut accents and backgrounds
* Gold Mini Sequin Trim


The Coordinating colours: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Emerald Envy, Pool Party, Real Red

This is a great kit to get together with friends to make. Or ask you Demonstrator to run it as a class project. Additional items you will need are the Watercolor Christmas Stamp set, Black ink (I like Memento), Fast Fuse, Dimensionals and the Fine Tip Glue pen.
