Pinkies Blog Hop - Welcome !

Pinkies Blog Hop - Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue
Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

      If you have arrived here from my lovely downline Caroline's beautiful blog, a big hello and welcome. A fab project from Caroline using the Festive Flurry set.




What I LOVE about the Seasonal Catalogue is the number of 'Kits' that Stampin' Up! have launched. These ensure that you have everything at hand to get going with your projects, make great presents too, and are perfect for new crafters.

The kit I have focused on today is the 'Merry Little Christmas' Simply Created Card Kit.

There are elements included in the £8.95/€11,95 to make 8 complete cards with envelopes, and includes cardstock, cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut designer paper, baker's twine, buttons and instructions! If you match it with a sweet 'Merry Little Christmas' stamp set you can have the whole bundle at a 15% discount for just £15.95/€21,95. The Christmas text is also available in French and German.


The card shown above on the top left hand side is the one that you will have full instructions for, but I have gone on to make some different cards with more of the components. 

By cutting up the card and paper, I also made some tags and a matching box. I swapped out the Christmas sentiment for the 'Thank You' (from Four You) to show that these do not have to be Christmas cards at all. If you look carefully at the Thank You card, the white strip I have used is the white banner piece just sliced in half down the centre! Have a look at the photo below and you will see what I mean. There is just so much scope for this little pack.

Kit after the above projects!



Having made 7 projects so far... there is still PLENTY more left in the kit to carry on. The photo on the left is the kit as I opened it, and on the right, an amazing amount of product still left after the above 7 projects!




If you want to order the Bundle for yourself or as a present, or any of the items on my BLOG please visit my online shop HERE


 I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. If you have any enquiries, would like to order products or would like to find out more about Stampin' Up!, joining my team, a club or a class, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Now I will pass you onto the lovely Clare in Northern Ireland for the next Pinkies Blog Hop.
Thank you for visiting.

  4. As a new crafter, I'm always trying to see what set's will give mé the most bang for my buck so to speak as I don't have a huge stash of crafting materials. I love the idea of buying this set and being able to use it for so many other projects. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Xandra, and what helps is that most of the bits are ready to go, so no need to even cut and score the cards.... and the die cuts are all ready too. Jenny
