Greetings from the North Pole











The week long Online Extravaganza sale is still going on and there are lots of great deals that are still up for grabs. You can select product up to 40% off and the best part is you can start your Christmas shopping by shopping off these amazing deals!!! 

My project today is one that I CASE from the Stampin' Success quarterly magazine. This little magazine is filled to the brim with product samples, training, business resources and so much more!! One of the fun benefits of being a demonstrator!!
























The best part about this stamp set is that you can get it right now for 25% off till the Nov 30. It's part of the special promotion that they have going on with the Stitched Shaped Framelits. Unfortunately,these framelits are un- orderable at the moment, as we loved them so much that we depleted Stampin'Up inventory in 2 weeks. But you can still purchase select stamp set at 25% and I have include the list for you to see!!













You can also view these stamp set here on by online store and we are hoping the Stitched Shaped Framelits will be back in stock soon. I will keep you posted!

You can view all the supplies that I used on my project by clicking on the links below!!

Fancy Fold Blog Hop - Santa Sleigh Pop Up Book










Welcome to this month's Fancy Fold Blog Hop. We are a group of demonstrators that gather once a month to showcase different Fancy Folds each month from all over the world!! Today, our design team is excited to showcase the Pop Up Book!!

If you're already been blog hopping then you just came from the talented Shannean Moncrieff and if you are joining us for the first time, not a problem as you can continue on the blog by clicking on the next button at the bottom of the page to scroll through the rest of this creative blog hop!!

This is was the first time that I did a Pop Up book and had to turn this tutorial on Splitcoaststamper to help me create my card today. After a few scrap paper runs, and templates,  I finally figure it out! Let me tell you this card is so fun and unique!!



















The Santa Sleigh bundle was sitting on my desk and I thought this would be the perfect card to use this set on!! My card base is 6 by 12 score at 6". I then cut another piece of Crumb Cake card stock 5 3/4 by 5 3/4 for my next layer and ran this though the Big Shot with the Cable Knit Impression Folder. I love the deep impression this folder gives. Plus it gives me that warm and cozy feeling that the holidays brings!!

I stamp my tree onto Garden Green card stock with Garden Green ink and my sleigh onto Cherry Cobbler cards sock with Cherry Cobbler ink. Using my Santa Sleigh Dies and my Big Shot, I cut them. This is one of my favourite things about framelits, you always get a clean cut!! 

My new Stitched Shapes Framelits arrived the other day and I couldn't wait to use them!! My scallop frame is from the Layering Circle Collection and the White stitched square is from my Stitched Shapes Framelits. My greeting and snowflake are from the Tin of Tags stamp set. 

Now here comes the magic...when you open the card, the inside POPS like it's a story book!!! 












How fun is that!! When I was planning this card, I have vision the night before Christmas and the stocking were hung by the tree waiting for them to be filled!! 

My first panel was created using the greeting from the Warmth and Cheer stamp set!! 

My second panel was created with the Christmas Pines stamp set, the Santa Sleigh Bundle and the Hearth and  Home thinlits! I embossed my white piece with the Brick Embossing folder as I wanted it to look like a fireplace. My stocking were coloured with my markers and I used Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. 












I added the Bright Candy dots to my tree to so they would look like ornaments. Of course I had to have a present under the tree!! I don't know about you but I LOVE the festival season and can't wait to start decoration for the festival season!!

Want to give this fancy fold a try, I would recommend checking out the tutorial link above to get you started. I have to say that this fancy fold was super easy and so much fun!! I can't wait to give it a try again with a few other stamp set!!  

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope this has given you some inspiration to give this Fancy Fold technique a try!! Next up on the blog hop is the talented France Poitras Martin. Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!!!
