Holiday catalogue launches today


Are you starting to think about Christmas already? I know I am. Today Stampin’ Up! launches the Holiday catalogue. You can now purchase any of these products online here or by contacting me. Please contact me if you would like a catalogue and you don’t have one.

For years I have created a December daily album. I have included a lot of journaling about our Christmas traditions, our Christmas preparations, our presents, our December life. Last year, with a new baby, I just didn’t get around to it. I fell in love with this kit from Stampin’ Up! as soon as I saw it. There is an 8’x8’ album in beautiful Old Olive which comes with 10 divided page protectors. Then you can purchase the Journaling Tags as inserts into the pockets. So cute and so easy.

You would have arrived here from Monique Fielder’s blog. Aren’t we a talented bunch of ladies?


As you’ve probably noticed chevrons are the latest craze and I must admit I do adore a chevron. That’s why I was so excited by this chevron border punch. I have used the punched out chevrons to highlight my kids with their cousin. Love, love, love this chevron punch. Can you tell I’m a bit excited today?

I have added a few embellishments to these pages but you could just use the journaling cards and add them into the pockets. Above I have used my new favourite stamp and punch combination, Christmas Collectibles, the baubles. This set is amazing value at only $49.25 for the clear mount stamps (5) and matching punch. How easy and effective are they?

I have  created a layout using the Seasons of Style Designer Series Paper and one of the cards from the Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags. I also used a tag from the Stamp a Tag Kit. This kit is so cheap. It comes with 2 ink spots, 2 wood mounted stamps, 2 lots of twine and 24 tags in a beautiful little box. Perfect for making your own tags for your Christmas gifts.

For those of you who like to read the journaling. Cute stamp (Color Me Christmas) I’ve used to add a little more detail to the Journaling Tag.

  1. Good idea to journal about last Christmas! I have this album but have been challenged to use it for non-Christmas, so its great to see it with all the journalling tags etc – love your washi tape additions too. TFS!
