Christmas Gift Bags

I'm seeing Christmas craft inspiration everywhere and it is really getting me in the mood for Christmas preparations! I'm going to be making some more gift bags like this one from last year I think...

This was a simple brown gift bag from Paperchase, stamped with some simple Christmas stamps in Chocolate Chip and Real Red ink pads from Stampin' Up!. To create the centre I've inked the edges of a square of Whisper White card, and then punched the flower petals using the Oval Punch. I layered the six petals together and then completed the centre by stamping a circle Christmas Joy design in Chocolate Chip ink, and punching it out in a circle. I attached it using 3D foam pads for a little dimension. I love this brown stitched ribbon, it's so thick its perfect for things like this. So quick and easy to make, I'll definitely be creating more!

Retiring List Now Available!

Details are up of all the bargains to be had on the Stampin' Up! retirement list - this details all of the items that will not be carried over into the new 2010 - 2011 catalogue so see if your favourites or must-have products are on there!

If they are, don't delay in ordering them as these items are only available until 30th September or while stocks last, whichever comes first. CLICK HERE to view the entire seven pages and contact me (details to the right) if you have any questions.

I've also just seen a sneak peek of the new catalogue and I have to say, it's very exciting! We aren't allowed to share it with you until October 1st but there are some lovely stamp sets in there and some very gorgeous hostess sets! If the items are not listed here then they will be carried over into the new catalogue, however I can confirm that prices will be increasing in the new catalogue, as you would expect. Therefore if you are thinking of ordering, now would be the chance to do that too to save a few extra pennies.

Take a look at the list HERE for up to 50% off Stampin' Up! products.
