Stampin up holiday mini catalog top note die

My 15 year old daughter, Caroline, has fallen head over heels for jewelry making.  My sister "commissioned" her to create a necklace with turquoise and brown.  My role was to jazz up the presentation with a few papercrafts–easy to do with these two Stampin' Up! Exclusive Bigz Dies (Scallop Envelope and Top Note).

  • Stampin' Up!'s Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper (Holiday Mini Catalog) offers a stunning combination of fall colors: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, More Mustard, Taken with Teal, Very Vanilla.

  • Simple layering of Boho Flower Blossoms and the Scallop Square (set on an angle) punch up the Scallop Envelope.
  • The Top Note Die folded the long way is the perfect topper for Stampin' Up!'s Medium Cello Bags.  Excellent bang for the buck . . . 50 (4" x 6") bags for $4.50.
  • A single flower from the Trio Flower Punch adds pizzazz to the tag.  The Trio Flower Punch is on sale NOW as part of the Stampin' Up! Deal of the Week.  Don't miss out!

    Wonderful! So glad to hear Caroline has found her creative outlet, too!

    Hi Colleen:

    I haven’t convinced Caroline to be a papercrafting maniac (like her mum). However, I’m excited to see her so entrenched in jewelry and the art and therapy of crafts.

    Hugs, M
