Stampin’ Up! Thailand Achievers September Blog Hop – A Merry Little Christmas

 The Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack is one of my Holiday Catalogue Favourites and I have a couple of projects to share today.


Welcome to the final Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop! September marks the end of the Stampin’ Up! year so it’s goodbye for this group.

But there will be a new monthly Blog Hop starting next month or those demonstrators who have earned the next Incentive Trip – Alaska – which includes me! Yay! So I get to keep hopping with amazing demonstrators from around the world! Only a limited number of demos (less than 1% of all demonstrators) reach the level required to earn the trip each year.

Our theme for this month’s Blog Hop is Holiday Catalogue Favourites.

I have lots of favourites and am particularly loving all the musical themed products in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue! There are stamp sets, and dies, and Designer Series Paper and Memories & More cards! I’m going to focus on the gorgeous Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack which you can find on page 14 of the catalogue.

Merry Little Christmas

This image doesn’t really do the collection of card justice – they are gorgeous in real life! You can get a better idea of what the pack contains in this video by Stampin’ Up!

What I really, really love is that all the words on these cards are either the title of, or are lyrics from a Christmas song. Some are from Christmas Carols (eg Joy to the World) while others are general Christmas Songs (eg IDreaminging of a White Christmas). I find myself humming the tunes as I am using these cards!

Most years I complete a December Daily album and with the Merry Little Christmas Card Pack I’ve got my 2017 December Daily album all ready to go.

The Basic Black 6″x8″ Album is a perfect size and I’ve put two of the Variety Packs of 6″x8″ Photo Pocket Pages into it. And the Lemon Lime Finely Woven Ribbon makes this album Pop!

Then popped in most of the cards from one pack of Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card pack. Here’s just a couple of the pages.

It’s now ready and waiting for =December- when I’ll take some pictures, print and put them into the album. I’ll add some of the cute stickers that come in the card pack and depending on my time and inclination – I can add other embellishments or DSP or washi or … anything I fancy! Being pockets, it’s easy to swap cards around to suit the photos, but having the album partly completed means it is much more likely to be completed!


The second project I’ve got to share is a gift box with 5 cards inside. The Acetate Card Box is another favourite new product in the Holiday Catalogue

The outside of the box is decorated with the Merry Music Specialty DSP, the Black and White Striped Ribbon, a cute Mini Ornament some Linen Thread and one of the Green Sprigs .

The Acetate Card box is perfectly sized for our cards. Stampin’ Up! has done a great job at giving each of its markets the size that fits that countries standard envelopes. So here in New Zealand, these will hold 5 standard 10.5cm  x 14.8cm (1/4 A4) along with 5 C6 envelopes! Perfect!

Here are the cards are outside the Acetate box.

Each card has some fo the Merry Music Specialty DSP on it along with cards from the Merry Christmas Memories & More Pack.

The Merry Music Specialty DSP is a real bargain too! The paper is slightly lighter than our normal DSP weight and so there are 24 sheets included in the $27.75 Pack

You get 4 each of 6 double-sided designs. That means plenty of Black and White paper to use in all sorts of Christmas Projects.

This close-up shows a little more detail – including some of the additional embellishments used on the cards.

There are stickers from the Card Pack, the Black and White Striped Ribbon and the Black Vintage Crochet Trim!

I’ve also added some cards and stickers to the inside.


Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what I created with the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack. I made these for a Team Training day where I presented to a group of about 65 demos. And each person got to make a 12’x12″ page too!
