Hello & Welcome to another exciting Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing the absolutely gorgeous Holiday Catalogue. I’m loving the new style of the “Seasonal Minis” which are now not-so-mini, that’s why they are now called “Seasonal Catalogues”. They also last for 5 months instead of the usual 4 months – we have one extra month to enjoy them even more. They even have more pages full of lovely products.
I’m sure you would have enjoyed checking out the super-talented Tina Gillespie’s creations – she is so talented, isn’t she?
Here is a list of other Crafty Demonstrators participating in this month’s Blog Hop:

I’ve used the Core-dinations Cardstock – Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso & Gumball Green – each colour is available separately in a 12″x12″ pack of 12 sheets ($11.95). This cardstock is sandable & gives your creation an antique distressed look. To obtain this look, you will also need the Stampin’ Sanding System (which consists of a sanding block – 2 grits – fine & very fine – you also receive some sandpaper refills). This task can get dusty, so there is also a Dusty Buddy you use to wipe up the excess “dust” – the Dusy Buddy is also available in this Catalogue.
The Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details is so easy to use – it’s just like Glitter but sticky. Make sure you don’t put any other project on top of it, until it dries completely – Yes, I’ve learnt the hard way.
This cardstock works extremely well with our Embossing Folders. I have created 3 little tags (which could be used for any occasion).
