Well today is the big day! It’s my Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog Open House (check out my events page for more info)! As you can see I have been busy putting together a variety of surprises and decorations for this big event! Hopefully my guests will be as excited as I am about all of the fabulous products in this new catalog! If you have been following my posts on here then you have already seen the gorgeous “Let it snow” banner as well as the rosettes featured in this picture! But there is more…check out the stars and the gift bags!! I actually have a retired big shot die that I used to make the stars. And…of course the stars are made with the silver foil sheets found in the holiday catalog! 🙂
And…how about these adorable little gift bags?!? Each of my guests will receive one of these as a thank you for attending my open house! The bags are called Tag a Bag Gift Bags and they are in the annual catalog. They are pretty inexpensive and make adorable little gift bags for any event! I decided to stamp the Festive Flurry images on the bags using the new metallic silver encore ink pads. Then I simply embellished them with the smoky slate chevron ribbon, white organza ribbon, vintage faceted buttons and some linen thread! Oh, and I stamped up a little tag from the Chalk Talk stamp set! I love them and I am sure my guests will too!
