In fact, the earlier you start the more stress you can save yourself and the more you can just sit back, relax, and visit when the actual holidays roll around. So, I’m so excited to introduce you to the BRAND NEW 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! It’s full of fun stamp sets, papers, accessories and more to help you make beautiful (or…

Thank goodness for matching framelits that cut out these leaf stamps perfectly! Makes it really easy to add an extra popped-up leaf as an embellishment. This is an easy one and a great way to use those extra long, skinny strips of paper. I hate to throw those away because they can add…
