8 Reason for the Season with Festive Flower Builder Punch Swaps

Today I have eight beautiful holiday swaps cards to share with you!  Fill your Christmas projects with peace, love, and meaning. With the Reason For The Season stamp set, you can choose the perfect sentiment, then layer the flower images to create the look you want.  There is also the Festive Flower Builder Punch designed to compliment the stamp set.  When you purchase them as a bundle, you save 15% (Reason For The Season Bundle -140847)

Reason for the Season Bundle swap cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup Janice Urke

I actually gasped when I saw Janice's Founder's Circle swap.  It's breathtakingly beautiful.  I can tell a lot of love when into it.  You might not want to make 114 cards (like we did for the FC swap), but you could make 4 or 5 for those special people on your Christmas card list.  See below for a video from Stampin' Up! on how to use the Festive Flower Builder Punch to create poinsettias.

The Cozy Christmas stamp set is filled with vintage Christmas and winter images.    When I saw the snow-laden house, I immediately thought of,  "over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go".  The traditional images evoke memories of holiday magic!  Check out these fabulous Cozy Christmas swaps from fellow demonstrators (Founder's Circle, Control Freaks, DOstamperSTARS and Stamp Share for Leaders groups)

Cozy Christmas swaps cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Robin Anderson)

8 Swap Cards filled with Winter Wishes!

Picture this... a cabin in the woods, cozy with snow and filled with gear for enjoying the winter wonderland outside. You can evoke that same feeling on cards you create with Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog stamp set, Winter Wishes.

Winter Wishes Holiday Catalog swap cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Kay Kalthoff)

This is my favorite Winter Wishes swap and it was created by my friend and fellow demonstrator Kay Kalthoff.  The collage of images is just perfect and the touch of pine boughs around the edges frames it nicely.  Added texture of the In Color Striped Cotton Ribbon, Woodgrain TIEF and Snowflake Elements brings it all together beautifully.  I feel like I'm at a ski lodge!

Wonderland swaps from 2015 Holiday Catalog shares by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Mindy Gray)

This my one of favorite swaps that I received from Mindy Gray at Founder's Circle.  I love everything about it...the color blocking, the embossed trees, the greeting banner, the Snowflake element and even the way she tied on 2 pieces of Gold Cording...love!

Say Goodbye to the Holiday Catalog & 12 Crazy About You Sneak Peeks!

Catalog Transition Dates and Items Ending Jan 5th

I've been receiving several questions regarding start and end dates of our seasonal catalogs.  Here they are...

  • 2014 Holiday Catalog: Ends January 5
  • 2015 Occasions Catalog: Starts January 6 - ends June 2
  • 2015 Sale-a-Brations Brochure: Starts January 6 - ends March 31
  • Dawn's Occasions Catalog Product Shares - taking reservations

If you're an active customer with me, the Occasions Catalog and SAB Brochure should have arrived in your mailbox by now.  Some have questioned whether they have received the Occasions Catalog yet.  It can be confusing, as the Occasions Catalog has a "double cover"...  

  • The outer one that is yellow and has reminders for Sale-a-Bration.  
  • The real cover is under that...  
    • Just turn the page and you'll discover the amazing Occasions Catalog, showcasing the beautiful Build-a-Bouquet Project Kit on the front cover! 

New, as you browse through the 2015 Occasions Catalog, you'll find that a handful of products from the 2014 Holiday Catalog are being featured (in addition to those found on page 49).  However, most will "disappear".

HolidayCatalogTH_0714_NA

Here's some of my favorites NOT Carrying Forward from the 2014 Holiday Catalog (with links to some samples):

Be sure to stock up before they are gone, gone, gone!
