Holiday Catalogue is Flying Back to the North Pole!

Holiday Catalogue

Today is the last day you are able to order from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Some of the items will carryover and still be available tomorrow, but many are leaving forever.

See here for the carryover list.

Click here for the retirement list in list format, or here to visit my online store and view in pictures.

If there’s anything left on your wishlist, you’ll want to pop by my online store and order it today.  Shipping direct to your door is a low $5.95 for order of $120 & under.  Click here to visit my online store.

My final share from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue had to include those gorgeous Foil Snowflakes.  If you loved them as much as I did, I hope you’ve stocked up!  They won’t be available to purchase after 8.59pm tonight (WA time).

I also loved the Festive Phrases stamp set.  It was an impulse buy which I’ve gotten so much use from!  There’s 4 diverse sentiments in this set – perfect for a range of festive occasions.

It’s one of the discounted items from the Holiday Catalogue – only $25.50 in clear and $33.60 in wood.

I’ve snuck in an Occasions Catalogue sneak peek….. new to the range tomorrow is the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  Stylish & versatile, you’re going to want to add it to your collection!

Check back tomorrow for catalogue links.

Product List

Elf in A Box

Earlier in the year I had a custom order for a card to be sent overseas. And I realised I hadn’t shared it with you!

It’s the perfect Christmas Eve creation to share – full of joy & fun!

It needed to be something that could sit up & be displayed on the mantle, but could be posted flat – a card in a box was the perfect fold.

I really like Di Barnes’ tutorial & measurements for making a card in a box.  Click here visit her blog.


I wanted to make the card look like a present filled with presents!

Here it is folded flat…

And a closer view of the elf on the inside.  I masked out the Happy Holidays sentiment & replaced it with a bow!

I have loved using the Festive Phrases stamp set!  It’s retiring from the Holiday Catalogue and is available in the online store at a 15% discount for clear-mount and 20% discount for wood-mount.  The DSP for this card – Christmas Around the World – is also on the retirement list.

The Labels to Love stamp  set (sentiment on the card), Everyday Label Punch & Ready for Christmas stamp set (presents on the card) are all on the carryover list.  See the full list here.

Paper Adventures Christmas

Earlier in the month, the Paper Adventures team celebrated Christmas.

I forgot to get a team photo (I’m terrible at capturing moments – too busy enjoying them!), but here’s me with our littlest Adventurer…

Paper Adventures Christmas Party 2017

There was food, presents and of course stamping!

I organised a few festive games.  One of them was blindfolded stamping!

Paper Adventures Christmas Party 2017

Here’s how it worked…

I provided a box with stamp sets, blocks, ink pads, card bases, DSP, whisper white, ribbon & punches. Only one of each type of item was allowed at any time. Everyone formed teams of 2, with one person blindfolded and one person not. The ‘seeing’ person was able to get items, pass them to the ‘blind’ person, do any cutting required and give verbal instructions. The ‘blind’ person had to do everything else – stamping, sticking, punching, tie bows, etc
We set a 15 minute time limit and at the there was a parade and a winning card was chosen.

Here’s the teams in action…

For our presents we swapped Secret Santa gifts filled with…Stampin’ Up!  That’s what everyone wants for Christmas – yes?!

I got this amazing stamp set from the upcoming Occasions 2018 Catalogue.

I can’t wait to ink up in the new year!  It will be perfect for team cards!


Of course there were gifts from me too (I love giving gifts any time of the year but Christmas is perfect for sharing the love!).

Each team member got a personalised Paper Adventures bag…

And a card…

Paper Adventures Christmas Card | kelly kent

As I was making the card I loved how it represented me & my style of 2017 – non-traditional colours, gold & white embossing, vellum, snowflakes…

And of course a message that shares how much my team means to me…
