It’s Never Too Early to Plan for the Holidays!

DSCN0867

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer, enjoying time with family and friends and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Even though summer is in full swing, before you know it will be time to start creating your holiday cards.  And Stampin’ Up! is helping you by releasing a gorgeous set, Carols of Christmas along with the coordinating thinlits Card Front Builder ahead of the unveiling of the 2017 Holiday catalog!  It can be purchased separately or save 10% by buying the bundle!

I have just started playing with these and I am really having a great time!  There is so much that can be done with this bundle, from a complex card to something quite simple. I think this set will appeal to almost everyone and I put it as a must have for your holiday crafting.  You can get a lot of mileage out of the thinlits, they can be used well after the holidays, especially the beautiful frame cut out.

I created this card for our Annual Christmas in July Card Buffet and it was a huge hit!  It has a great traditional Christmas look plus it is super easy to put together and replicate in large quantities.  Enjoy!
