So Santa Christmas Card - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

So Santa by Stampin' Up! - Beach Scene Christmas Card - by Susan Wong


Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop! We're a team of current and ex Stampin' Up! Artisans that love to hop together and provide you with inspiration each month. This month - we're talking Christmas cards. What have you been making??

So, I totally caved and bought the So Santa stamp set! My daughter and I have had lots of fun colouring with this set making simple cards for her school Christmas fair. Buuuut, I had to take this guy one step further to an all out beach scene. Isn't he jolly?! It's perfect for our warm Christmas holidays here in New Zealand.

Merry Christmas - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Christmas Sampler Decor / Layout - Merry Christmas / All is Bright by Stampin' Up! - Susan Wong


We're feeling mighty festive this month as we play with the All is Bright suite from the Holiday Catalogue. Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team hop!

I made this sampler-come-scrapbook-page for display over the Christmas season and then for keeps in the album later. My white square bases are 3x3" and the next layer up is 2 7/8" square - I'm a narrow borders kind of gal! If you make these now and then, or are teaching them in a class, you can make a chipboard frame to help easily line up the squares - see below.
