Last week I held Holiday Catalogue Launch Parties at my house, which included hands-on exploration of the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue products, creating two gorgeous projects, participating in games, winning prizes and more!  Here's some glimpses from the event...

Holiday Catalogue Launch Party

I love giving away new products for prizes.  Here are the spot prizes I put together for the occasion: the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, some of the Stitched Felt Embellishments, all wrapped up using the gorgeous Quilted Christmas 1/4" Ribbon.

Plus, everyone who attended an Holiday Catalogue Launch Party had multiple chances to put their name into a prize draw, which was drawn at the end.  The winners received the fabulous Merry Little Labels stamp set and the lovely Merry Little Christmas 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, tied with a generous length of 7/8" Striped Ribbon.

This tag has triangular tree stamped in Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist, then die-cut using the Quilt Builder Framelits dies to get that gorgeous stitching.  For the second tag, I used one of the sheets from the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper that has a number of triangles over it, to die-cut in the same way as the first tag.  Love that coordination!

I had such a fabulous time at the Holiday Catalogue Launch Parties and had some lovely feedback to say the same.  I've also heard that there are a lot of well-thumbed and marked catalogues out there!  Have you got yours?
