Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection Blog Hop

All week long I have been featuring the soon to be released Holiday Magic Collection from Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval box.  This collection of products was designed exclusively for Catherine Pooler and they won't be available for sale before the holidays this year.  Clicky to learn more and get on the wait list.



 Today I get to take part in a very special blog hop with all of the designers who were lucky enough to get their hands on this collection early.  You are going to be blown away by all the samples created with items from this box, and they will all be included in the PDF that comes with the Holiday Magic Collection.


Here is a video I made just for you to show you how I created this frozen fairytale card.

https://youtu.be/mZ2m7Y1zFKQ

It's hard to see the frosty watermark on the tag, so below is a close up.  It is a very subtle detail, but it makes a difference in the overall design.


The first box sold out in record time and we are predicting this one will sell out too.  If you want to be among the first to hear when the collection goes up for sale tomorrow, CLICKY, and get on the wait list.  StampNation members will get the email an hour early, so consider joining StampNation now.  ;) 



Now for the super fun part.  Catherine Pooler will be giving away 2 boxes to lucky commenters along the hop.  Be sure to follow along the hop and see even more goodness that this overstuffed box has to offer!!!  Leave a comment on each blog for a greater chance of winning one of these boxes for yourself.

Nicely done Heather!! Your color scheme is so soothing and the glimmer paper is just the right amount of sparkle. But then, can you really have TOO much sparkle on holiday cards?? I think NOT. :) The watermark snowflakes were a really delicate touch. Oh, and I'm a sucker for Christmas music so thank you for the background music on your video.
