Holiday Mini Catalog Sneak Peek!

Only five more days until the new Holiday Mini Catalog goes live!!  Hopefully you've already gotten your hands on a copy of the new mini, and if so and you're like me, you've already got your wish list made out!!  I love the holidays and the Holiday Mini Catalog is one of my favorite minis of the year!  Once I get it, I can't wait to make my wish list, put in my first order, and when my order arrives, start making my holiday projects.  From Halloween projects for the kids' classmates, to Thanksgiving cards and decorations, to my annual Christmas cards, craft fair items, and last but not least my holiday decor!  Fun, fun, fun!!

This week my stamping sisters and I are giving you a little sneak peek of some of the sets and accessories from the mini! 

Since I was so excited to use everything that I was able to pre-order as a demonstrator, I figured I'd better start with the first holiday coming up, Halloween.  I used the Haunted Forest A la Carte stamp and the Fright Night Designer Series Paper.  Check out my blog to see more!

Rachel decided to give us a little peak at the new Snow Burst Impressions folder for the Big Shot.  She actually used 4 new products on her card.  Check out her blog for more infomation on those products.

Debbie also designed a Halloween card this week, but hers features the new Out on a  Limb stamp set and the fabulous new silver glimmer paper.  Please visit her blog here to get all the details.

Here is Karla's card for this week, she used 2 different techniques on her card. See her blog for details on those and to find out the name of this set:

I hope that our creations give you a little inspiration and help you get started on your holiday projects!  We'll have many more creations from the mini in the weeks and months ahead so make sure to stop by each Friday and say hi!!

Have a great weekend!  Jacque, Debbie, Karla and Rachel

It's that time of year again....Back to School

Although most of us would probably agree that we aren't ready for summer to come to a close, it is coming fast.  It's almost back to school time (I know some schools have even already started). This week here at Sisters in Stamping we are showcasing back to school projects.  

Debbie created matching school supplies for her project this week featuring the Berry Blossom DSP.  Be sure and check out all the details on her blog here.

Jacque had the same idea, but used a different piece of the same DSP pack for this altered journal for her niece Jacie. Please visit Jacque's blog for all the information about her cute project.

Karla created a super-cute pencil holder for us this week.  You will find additional details on her blog here.

And I (Rachel) made this 12x12 scrapbook page for my annual first day of school pictures of my two boys. I used some designer series paper that looks like lined notebook paper for the backdrop.  Be sure to check out my blog to get all the details.

Thanks for checking us out again this week.  Come back next week when we will be giving you some sneak peeks of the fabulous Holiday Mini Catalog.

Until next time,
Debbie, Jacque, Karla and Rachel

NEW 2011-12 IB&Catalog Tour continues...

We are in the Elements Section of the new catalog this week. This section of the new catalog is packed with stamp sets filled with components-- backgrounds, flourishes, frames, stamped textures, etc. the list goes on and on! This years catalog has some new trendy Element stamp sets too, contact your Demonstrator today to get yourself a free copy of this beautiful catalog.

Jacque and Debbie used the same set this week called Creative Elements. It is a set of 8 stamps with a very eclectic theme. See Jacque's blog for more details on her card here:

  Debbie's scrapbook page uses 4 of the 8 stamps in the Creative Elements set. Even though they used the same set the projects look completely different, don't you think? Here is the link to Debbie's blog.

Here is my (Karla) card for this week. I used the set Four Frames and some new pretty Designer Series Paper. All of the details are on my blog:

Here is Rachel's card.  She used Delicate Doilies and the Hello, Doily background stamp for her card.  She has more information on her blog so be sure to check it out.
We appreciate you stopping by this week and hope you will join us again next week for some Back to School projects!

Until then, Karla, Rachel Debbie and Jacque

Wildlife, flowers and trees... oh my!

Have you enjoyed our catalog tour so far?  Jacque came up with the great idea to go section by section through the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  This week we are focusing on the "All Natural" section found on pages 97 through 124.  This large section features stamp sets with images of wildlife, flowers, trees, birds, leaves and butterflies - what more could you ask for?
Jacque created this beautiful card using the Fabulous Florets set that made it from the Summer Mini Catalog into the Idea Book and Catalog.  Check out Jacque's blog for details and another view.

Here is my contribution this week... I absolutely love the Friends Never Fade stamp set found on page 107.  Please visit my blog (Debbie) for more details and to see what inspired this card.

Here is Karla's card for this week. She used Flower Fest, that set can be found on page 124 of the NEW IB&C. Check out her blog for to see the inspiration for this card here:

Rachel decided not to make a card this week.  Look at her sweet little box that would be great for any party favor.  Visit Rachel's blog for complete details on how she made it.

Thanks for stopping by this week!  We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
