Hello and welcome to Sisters in Stamping,

Each of us hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving with your family yesterday. With Thanksgiving behind us we are ready to move onto Christmas shopping, right? Well, you need to have some great tags to identify your Christmas gifts and we have just that for you today.

First up we have Debbie's tags that are great for kids to make. She used these for a Mom and Me class. Head over to her blog for more details.

Rachel used the Color Me Christmas set that Debbie used but her tags are a little more involved. Check out her blog for all the details.
Thanks for stopping by. See you next week.

Ornaments for the Sisters this Week

The Sisters are back again this week with some Christmas Ornaments to show off! There really is nothing like a handmade Ornament, I like to give them out every year-- that's probably why I pick Christmas Ornaments as one of the projects for the Sisters in Stamping Fabulous Friday Blog post. There are plenty of new stamp sets, paper and accessories in the 2013 Holiday Mini to get you started with your Christmas crafting!
Here is my (Karla) Ornament, go to my blog to find out how it's a gift too.

Debbie is on a Ornament spree (this is her 2nd lovely ornament for this month). Both of them made with paper but look completely different. You can click on this link and compare them side by side for yourself.

Rachel's has directions and more pictures of her pretty ornament over at her blog. Here is a link to her post so you can go check it out. 
Well that's it for us this week, hope you have a great week-end and don't forget to come by next week-- the Sisters will have some sweet Thanksgiving table decor.

Seasonal designer paper from the Holiday Catalog makes paper crafting a breeze!

  Happy Friday and thanks for visiting us this week!  Have you seen the gorgeous Designer Paper offerings in the Holiday catalog?  The color combinations are phenomenal and the patterns are so on trend.  Paper crafting with these coordinated paper packs from Stampin' Up! takes the guess work out of matching up papers.  I love looking to the fun color combinations that the Stampin' Up! designers have put together in our designer paper packs when trying to find inspiration in my projects.  This week we are featuring the Designer Papers from the Holiday Catalog in our projects - there are four to choose from:  Sweater Weather (perfect for fall projects), Witches Brew (did you make any Halloween projects with these?), Season of Style (Christmas designs with traditional colors but a whimsical style) and Winter Frost Specialty (gorgeous color palette and designs that are perfect for all your winter projects).  And did you know that the Season of Style and Winter Frost patterns are offered in a stack of 48 sheets that are sized at 6-1/4" x 4-1/4", perfect for card makers and for use with the Big Shot!  So let's see what everyone created this week...

  First up is Rachel with her very merry Santa card.  Anyone is sure to be happy when they receive this card. Be sure to check out Rachel's blog to see how she created this card.

Here is Karla's project for this week, she used the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack to dress up her little box. Visit her blog to get a tutorial and see more pictures.

  Next are these two fabulous projects that our Guest Designer Cindy Blekas (who happens to be my very talented sister) made.  She used the Season of Style designer paper pack to create the Shadow Box (top) and bulletin board.  Hop over to this blog post to see a bonus project and find out what the bulletin board is made from!

  And here is my contribution for this week...I created a snowflake ornament using the Festive Flurry framelits dies and the gorgeous Winter Frost specialty designer paper pack.  I just love the cool color combination of Pool Party (one of my favorite colors) and how it pairs with Smoky Slate!  Boy, was this hard to photograph!  You'll find more information about how I put this together if you hop over to my blog post here.

  Thanks so much for visiting today to check out our Fabulous DSP projects!  We hope we have inspired you to purchase a pack from the Holiday catalog.  Have a wonderful weekend!!
