Stampin' Up! Nordic Noel Sneak Peek!

Do you want a sneak peek at some of the new catalogue goodies from Stampin' Up!?  These products are not available to customers until August 28th, but one of the major perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to see the catalogue and order new products in advance.  You could get your hands on these and more seasonal products in your starter kit if you join Stampin' Up!  Until the 28th of August, you even receive an extra £20 to spend  - you can choose £150 of products and receive a great business pack worth £45 all for only £99 including shipping.  What a bargain!  Contact me today if you would like to join the team!

Now to the crafting!  When I hear the word Nordic, I think of 2 things - Christmas.... and Ikea.  Today's projects combine the two.  With so much snow, indigenous reindeer and, of course, Santa's workshop, how could the thinking about the Nordic nations fail to conjure a festive feeling.

Stampin' Up! have managed to capture the spirit of Scandinavia with the Nordic Noel suite featured in the new seasonal catalogue.  With a warm and inviting colour palette of Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green and Real Red (and hints of Calypso Coral and Soft Sky), the Designer Papers have me reaching for a blanket and a tin of Danish Butter Biscuits, and I love the coordining designer buttons, they look like they could have fallen off an elfs jacket.

 The Cheerful Christmas stamp set is simple, with a lovely sentiment and beautifully decorated baubles.  I think they look lovely on pillar candles and would make an ideal festive gift or decoration for your home.

The brand new curvy keepsake box thinlit die creates beautiful gift packaging in minutes.  The little boxes are perfectly sized for a sweet treat, and comes with a variety of dies to make matching gift tags.

The Nordic Noel Suite is only one of the ranges featured in the Stampin' Up! seasonal catalogue.  I will be showing you more over the next few weeks so come back soon.
