I played around with the card design Darrah Hopper sent me the other day. I thought it would be fun to use as a Christmas in July card, and I just got some new sets and accessories from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. It’s one of the best yet! (I know, I know. I say that every time I get a new catalog.)

The Holiday catalog products are so fun! I love the core’dinations card stock with a lighter core. When you sand it, the lighter center really shows up. The sanding system is a larger block with two different grits of sandpaper. You attach it with velcro, so you can buy refills when your sandpaper is used up. And there’s a “dust buddy” cloth you can purchase that cleans up the sanding dust in a snap.
You’re going to love the products and ideas in the Holiday catalog. If you don’t get one before August 1, let me know and I’ll send you one.
Have a great weekend – and thanks for stopping by!
