Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Scentsational Season

If you are the kind of person who runs screaming at the very mention of the ‘C’ word in September, then it might be best to look away now. However if, like me, you are the kind of person who likes to start mulling over your Christmas card designs well in advance, then come on in and have a look.

The new Autumn/Winter catalogue is out today and I’m very excited to share some of the products with you. There is a lovely new collection of papers, which comes in all the traditional colours you’d expect….

….plus a few you might not.

I’ve pictured them here with the six main coordinating cardstock colours. They come in a pad of 48 sheets with 12 different double sided designs. At 6.5” x 4.5” they are perfectly sized for card makers and would make ideal photo mats for scrapbookers, or could be used to put together a Christmas mini book. Great value at £6.25.

I’ve used a few small strips to make some simple cards with a Crumb Cake base. The stamps are from the Scentsational Season set, which also includes a candy cane and a star for the top of the tree. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

The best thing though is that there is a matching set of Framelits available. No need for painstaking hand cutting, just run through your die cutting machine. Perfect when you are mass producing a design for Christmas cards. The stamps are £13.95 in the clear mount version (pictured) or £28.95 bundled with the matching Framelits

I used Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and brand new colour, Gumball Green. These would make great Christmas gift card holders. The mug design would be perfect for a gift card from the recipient’s favourite coffee shop. .

The new catalogue can be viewed online here, but if you’d like a paper copy then get in touch (angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com) and I’ll be happy to send you one.

I’m having a few issues with my laptop, hence the lateness of today’s post. All being well, I’m hoping to take part in Storytelling Sunday tomorrow. I found a little gem of ephemera a couple of weeks ago, that has sparked off a whole host of memories. Maybe I’ll see you there.

Heck I'm already Christmas shopping me! Great set of stamps and dies there. I reckon that mug could be layered up with something on top to make it a year round design too, do you think?
