Sunday Showcase: Last Call For 2014 Holiday Carryover Items

Too Cool Events & Specials!


Hi Stamping Friends!

I don't know about you, but I'm getting VERY excited about the upcoming Holiday Catalog, which will be released on August 28!   But, before we get to the new stuff, I wanted to give you one last heads up about the holiday stuff that is going away for good.  Wait, what?!!

Did You Know? Typically, we receive a list of holiday stamp sets and accessories that will carry over from the previous year's Holiday Catalog and will remain available during the new Holiday Catalog.  But this year, Stampin' Up! has announced that everything on the current 2014 Holiday Carryover List will be retiring on August 27, 2014. 

In other words, there are a few holiday items from previous years that are still available to order RIGHT NOW, but they will be retiring in one month to make room for an all-new list of holiday stuff. 

LAST CHANCE!  For today's Sunday Showcase, we're taking a look back at some of my favorite Holiday items that will soon be gone forever.  You'll see two cool snowflake sets, two cool ornament sets, two cool holiday greeting sets and more!  Don't miss out on your last chance to order these fabulous, festive items! 

TIP: If you see a project you like below, click on the photo to take you to the original blog post for more details.

Festive flurry 133285L 

1) Festive Flurry Stamps & Framelits—If you love snowflakes, and haven't purchased this bundle, I highly recommend it!  The classic designs and coordinating die-cuts make it a fabulous choice for holiday projects.  TIP: I've had a chance to look at the new 2014 Holiday Catalog and, while there are sets with snowflake designs, there are none that rival the pretty designs and versatility of this one from last year.  Also available in Wood Mount Bundle.

A few of my favorite projects using the Festive Flurry Bundle:

Bermuda bay argyle - card  Festive flurry ornament  Shoebox festive flurry - peace 


Snowflake soiree 127925L

2) Snowflake Soiree—The elegant, intricate snowflake designs in this set are unmatched!  If you're looking for fancy and festive…this is it!  A beautiful set for heat embossing!  Also available in Wood Mount.

I'll miss the pretty Snowflake Soiree set:

Snow soiree - peace  Believe - two cool


Ornament keepsakes 128051L

3) Ornament Keepsakes Stamps & Framelits—Speaking of elegant, these gorgeous ornaments from the 2012 Holiday Catalog are still available, along with the framelits to cut them out.  I love all of the vintage shapes and designs.  Again…nothing like this in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  Also available in Wood Mount.

This ornament set is so versatile.  Check out these past projects:
