12 Dies of Christmas Starts Today!

The 12 Dies of Christmas Kits in the Mail ordering starts today! Each paper crafting kit will feature a different die cutting and coordinating stamp set from the annual or fall catalogs. The how to videos will be shared via Youtube links. So you can work at your own pace, savoring each kit for a once a day treat or having a marathon crafting session.

Included are 2 Zoom Open Houses on Friday, December 18th, 9:30-11am and 6:30-8pm. Stop in to share what you have created with your kits. Chat with other paper crafters across the USA. See a stamping demonstration too.

This will be somewhat of a mystery stamping experience for you. I am keeping the designs a secret, EXCEPT FOR THE ONE I AM UNVEILING TODAY IN THIS BLOG POST AND VIDEO LINK. I hope you like it!

Please note: You will need your own stamp sets, die sets, ink pads and adhesives to complete the kits. I will be including large pieces of papers to be used on the stamped and die cut pieces because most dies need stamping and then die cutting for a perfect look. The large sheets of papers are being included in case you don’t have exactly the dies I am using in a design. In addition, ribbons and embellishments will be generous so you will probably have extra to use on additional projects. Per Stampin’ Up! policy, stamped images can not be included in kits.

I am planning on using the following dies and coordinating stamp sets:

Celebration Labels dies and Celebration Tidings stamp set

Dino dies and Dino Days stamp set

Forever Flourishing dies and Forever Fern stamp set

Gathered Leaves dies and Gather Together stamp set

Halloween Magic dies and Hallows Night Magic stamp set

In the Woods dies and Winter Woods stamp set

Love You More Than dies and Nothing’s Better Than stamp set

Nature’s Roots dies and Rooted in Nature stamp set

Pets dies and Pampered Pets stamp set

Stitched Leaves dies and Love of Leaves stamp set

Sunflower dies and Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set

World Map dies and Beautiful World stamp set

Your 12 Dies of Christmas Kits in the Mail Box includes: 12 paper crafting kits with envelopes, 12 Youtube assembly videos, 2 Zoom Rooms and USPS priority rate shipping.

Please let me know the email address to send the $35 PayPal invoice and what the mailing address is to ship the kits to. I will email the links to the Youtube assembly videos and Zoom Rooms.

P.S. Here is my Youtube video to create the caramel apple card. Enjoy!

Facebook Event Today at 2pm central

I’ll be clearing off my desk space so I can assemble these kits with you today at 2pm central through the One of a Kind Facebook group. They all feature angle cut cardstock so I called them my Angle Card Kits in the Mail. The Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder punch was used to finish the cards to create 4 different looks.

I still have kits ready for Monday shipping if you are interested in ordering a box. Each box includes 4 each of the 3 apple/pumpkin designs. That means you can share 3 cards of each design and keep 1 of each design in your idea file.

In addition, 1 Halloween kit and tutorial for this design is included too. I just could not resist including the Halloween design even though you might be receiving the box after Halloween! So that’s a total of 13 kits in the box.

PLEASE NOTE: I can swap out the Halloween design for the caramel apple finished card shown below. Please let me know if you would like the swap when you order your kit.

Order your box my clicking the Contact button at the top of my blog or PM me in Facebook and ask for the Angle Card Kits. I’ll send a PayPal invoice to your email address for $30. Shipping is USPS priority rate so the box should arrive to you within a few days of ordering. Porch Pick Ups from the Sun Prairie, Wisconsin area are available too.

PLEASE NOTE: To finish the cards according to the samples, purchase the following items from my online store by clicking on the words for the particular product. If you have a similar stamp set/punch in your stash already, those should work if they are about the same size as the Stampin’ Up! versions. I am including 1 punched pumpkin in your kit so you can trace around that on the included cardstock and cut out the shapes in case you don’t want to purchase the Apple Builder punch. You will need to use your markers to create the pumpkin veins and apple details if you don’t purchase the Harvest Hellos stamp set.

Here is what I used to finish the card kits:

Harvest Hellos stamp set, Apple Builder punch, Real Red ink pad, Real Red reinker, Granny Apple Green ink pad and Pumpkin Pie ink pad.

Assorted adhesives for piece assembly and scissors to cut the ribbons are needed too. Stampin’ Up! does not allow demonstrators to include stamped images in kits. So that is why you need to provide the stamp set, punch and ink pads. I’ll provide the papers for the stamped and punched images. I just can’t do that work for you. Last, your ribbons and patterned papers may arrive in assorted patterns and colors that are different from the sample photos. Thank you for understanding.

Here are links to my Youtube videos for the kit assembly in case you need to see how the angle cuts are created and piece measurements.

How about joining me and a few other demonstrators for a virtual Black Friday event? Details for this event can be found by clicking here. Getting a ticket to the event is as easy as placing a $35 or more order (excluding shipping and tax) by clicking on this link to order from my online store which is linked to host code G4SRFDHN.
