Can you believe it? There are only 15 more Mondays until Christmas! (It’s on a Sunday this year.)

If you read about our Partners special in yesterday’s post, you know that Stampin’ Up! has made coordinating dies for 6 stamp sets. And the Trimming the Tree bundle was the first one that we bought.

Since some feel that you shouldn’t wear white pants or shoes after Labor Day, we figured we’d wait until today to share a Christmas card.

If you already have the set (it was released in May), you can just get the dies while they last. If you don’t already have the set, you can save 10% and get the bundle.

Can I Share a Secret?

Ann knew that she wanted to use this new Trimming the Tree bundle today, but the Soft Suede piece was the start of the card. Why? Because she accidentally used the wrong die when preparing the cut card stock & supplies for those taking our Sweetest Cherries online class.


But as good crafters, nothing is wasted. So it’s used for this, our first Christmas card of the year.

Ann couldn’t help herself. She felt she had to use the Festive Pearls on this card. They’re out of stock right now, but should be available later this week. (The 12th is the estimated date.)

And since there are only 15 more Mondays until Christmas, you’ve got time to get your cards done early this year.

Remember that the apprentice’s birthday bash is coming up on Sunday, September 18th. It’s a free event you won’t want to miss. We’re inviting all our September shoppers and have at least $150 of prizes to give away divided up between at least 3 prizes.

And all you have to do for an invitation is shop with us!
