Christmas Blessings Special

My daughter tells me that “You can never get enough Christmas!” If it were her choice, we would have Christmas all year long and every gift would be a puppy.  If you are one who is already prepping for Christmas (or thinking that you really should) you will be as excited as I am about this amazing Christmas Blessings Bundle.


For a limited time, we are offering this discounted workshop bundle with an exclusive stamp set that gives you materials to create TWELVE cards, four each of three designs, using the rich, festive colors of Eggplant, Peacock, Sage, and Sugarplum. Silver glitter paper and gems and silver embellishing thread provide the perfect shimmery additions to these cards.

I recommend that you take take advantage of the Christmas Blessing workshop kit at 25% off the retail price! There is an easy-to-follow guide on my website that is available free for you to download so that you can create these all of these spectacular cards.


As an avid Nativity collector, I am LOVING this Christmas Blessings stamp set which you can purchase separately to create some of your own personalized Christmas projects. Wouldn’t these make some amazing scrapbook page titles?!


Many of you may have noticed that one of the cards does require the use of our Season of Joy Cricut™ Collection. Those of you who are Cricut™ users, will adore this new collection full of three-dimensional projects, beautifully designed cards, and delightful titles and icons.


If you are not a Cricut™ user ….well you need to just call me and we need to talk (just kidding)… you can easy exchange that one cut for another stamped image or use one of our new Holiday Thin Cuts in it’s place.

I can’t wait until my order arrives and I can get a head start on some of my Christmas projects.  This Christmas Blessings Bundle and Stamp Set are only available October 15–December 31 while supplies last on my website. ‘Tis the season for things to sell quickly and I would hate for you to miss out on this amazing special. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Do you know someone who is just amazingly awesome?
