It’s a brand new year and sometimes a new year brings change. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my business and have made the decision to stop sending card kits for all orders over $18.00.  I’ve thought long and hard about this for several months and it hasn’t been an easy decision to make. I’ve heard from many of you that you love my kits and I love that you love them but I need to make a change and offer them in a different way.  I offer my Card Samplers several times a month and will offer my Card Kits from time to time. They won’t be going away completely and I’m still in the process of figuring out all the details but I wanted to let you know today about my decision. By the way, I’m in the process of designing my next Card Sampler and it will be released on January 7th.          

The Stampin’ Up! January – June 2022 Mini Catalog goes live tomorrow and I have a sneak peek of some new products today!! But first, today is the last day the retiring products in the Holiday Catalog will be available.  You can see exactly which products are still available HERE.  


On to today’s sneak peek project! I made a box using the new Sweet Little Boxes and the Sweet Conversations Bundle.  The boxes are so easy to assemble and can be used for any occasion! 


As you can see in the picture above, the boxes already come with two strips of adhesive.  Simply use your bone folder to get a good crease on all the score lines, tear off the tape liner and pull up the sides to assemble the box. 



I used our new Sweet Talk 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to give some color to the box and then wrapped our Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon around the box for another pop of color. This ribbon debuted in the Holiday catalog but isn’t retiring and will continue to be available! I used the new Sweet Hearts Dies to cut the little envelope out of Highland Heather cardstock and all the hearts were cut out with these dies. The little Luv U was stamped onto Basic White cardstock with Highland Heather ink and was stamped with the Sweet Conversations stamp set

Below you’ll find all the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used for today’s card. If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store.
