And the Stamp of the Week Is . . .

Get ready for a great week of inspiration. This week’s stamp is from the new Holiday Catalog (of course!). It's Holiday Home, and it is AWESOME! Just look at all the accessories we get with the set: the leaves, the spider web, the snow flakes, the heart, the wreath . . . it just goes on and on! And, to make it even cooler, SU! has coordinating Framelits, so we don't have to do all those fussy cuts!

The photopolymer Holiday Home Stamp Set by itself is $15.95. The Holiday Home Framelits by themselves are $21.95, but the Holiday Home Bundle costs $31.95, saving you 15%.

I made mostly Christmas projects this week, though I did post a Halloween project using this set a couple weeks ago (click HERE).

I made a 3-D project for today. I was playing with the “card-in-a-box” concept which is all over Pinterest. What’s great about it is that it lies flat and fits into a standard envelope, but it opens up into this pretty little display!

See how it folds down flat? So cool!
Here's the back where you'd write your note to the very special person who receives this card!

If you want to make this project yourself, I would be happy to mail you a kit in my new Creativity by Mail Program. This kit will NOT contain the stamp set or pre-stamped elements. However, for $20 plus shipping, I will prepare all the materials for you to make 5 of these cards-in-a-box:

  1. 5 scored and cut box bases in Pear Pizzazz
  2. All the necessary layers of cardstock and DSP for each card
  3. Embellishments, including washi strips for the front and back
  4. Window sheet strips to pop up the houses
  5. Complete instructions

What will you need to complete this project on your own?
  1. Paper Snips to fussy cut the trees
  2. Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate and Lost Lagoon ink
  3. White embossing powder and embossing accessories
  4. Holiday Home Stamp Set (the framelits are not necessary to complete the project, but they make it easier)
  5. Clear blocks to mount the photopolymer stamps

I'm excited to start this Creativity by Mail program! I hope you enjoy the project and have fun making it!

Thanks for looking today, and check back later for more project ideas!
