I am on a roll creating projects with the stamp sets, papers and accessories I was able to pre-order from the 2014 Holiday Catalog — just one of the perks of being an independent demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! And those demonstrators that attended Convention this year got the chance to put in our pre-orders a week earlier than normal (sweet!).
I took advantage of the early pre-order and came home with a suitcase filled with stamps sets, embellishments and designer series papers. My suitcase was so heavy that if not for the generosity of the AA person who checked in my suitcase, I would have needed to pay $125 for that suitcase to fly home with me. Instead it just received a “HEAVY” tag before it went on its merry way through baggage check.
Among the pre-order products there is a stamp set called Bright & Beautiful that coordinates with the Stars Framelits Dies. I chose this stamp set for my next project, and here it is:
I stamped the star and then cut it out with the framelit die. I then scored on the backside from point to valley on each star point and folded on the scores to create the puffed star.
Here are the products that I used from the 2014 Holiday Catalog that will be available for purchase starting on August 28th:
