Holiday Catalogue is not so Mini any more!!!

There is nothing "mini" about this years Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, in fact we are no longer calling it the "mini catalogue"

Not only is packed full of all the great new products and stamp sets you look forward to every year there are a few new features I hope you will love as much as I do:
  I love that Stampin' Up! has bundled matching stamp sets with coordinating accessories like framelits saving you money (15%off)!  

 New Product suites to fit everyone's holiday needs!

Core'dinations Colorcore Card Stock -  oh and I love this one... Use 80 lb. sandable card stock to create an antiqued, distressed, color-popping look. Outside layers are exclusive Stampin' Up! colors--one side textured, one side smooth. Inside layer is a monochromatic color. Reveal inside layer by sanding, tearing, or distressing. 12 sheets; 12" x 12"; acid- and lignin-free. Use with Stampin' Sanding System and Core'dinations Dust Buddy. 


All the pictures above will link to my website so you can see more of the great products I am describing, if you would like to see the whole new Holiday Catalogue Click one of the below links:
