New Kit Collections

Kits Collection by Stampin’ Up!

When you were looking through the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog did you notice that the kits section was missing? That’s because Kits have undergone a big remodel. Today I’m excited to reveal a fresh new Kits Collection!

The whole new Kits Collection is now available online. Because the Kits Collection moved to our online store, we can add new kits without having to wait for a new catalog, and you know that any kits listed are available now and you won’t have to wait!

The kits are all-inclusive and low cost which makes them the perfect introduction to papercrafting for new crafters, a handy go-to for quick cards for experienced stampers, and a unique and affordable gift option!

Getting friends together for a fun papercrafting experience just got easier, too. With the Kits Collection, you and your friends can now go online and choose from a variety of affordably priced, versatile kits for multiple occasions. Everyone can pick a kit that fits their style, everything needed is included, so you can skip right to fun experience of sharing and creating with friends – hosted with me or on your own!

Color and Contour Friendship Card

My card was CASE’d from page 75 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Each week we makeover a card from the current Stampin’ Up catalog and then share it on our Facebook Group. You can join our CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group to see more samples and/or share your own card with us. It’s a great way to improve your stamping and challenge yourself to try new styles. I hope you will join us


For my card I thought it would be fun to design a cute card using the Color & Contour Bundle. I combined it with the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Assortments using one of the patterns using Mango Melody. It’s a color I don’t use a lot. I love how bright of a card it turned out to be! What a fun layout this is. I will definitely be using this layout for more cards! I will be getting a video recorded this week and get it uploaded on here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Make it a Creative Day!
