Hi Crafty Friends!
I am really enjoying all the Halloween and Fall projects that I've been working on, but you know I love Christmas projects. If you're making a handmade Christmas, you do need to start working kind of early so that you can have fun getting things done. So, so that you have time to order supplies and get to work, I'm sharing my Christmas Sampler early.
Oh Stampin' Up! you have done such a good job with your Holiday catalog this year. Isn't this piece just lovely? I mean, I love it but I hope you do too. Here are the measurements and then we'll get to the details. And for fun, I even made an assembly time lapse video, scroll down for the video.
