Guest Artist: Cathy Roy + 7 Ready for Christmas Cards

Cathy Roy did an amazing job creating projects with the Ready to Christmas bundle from the Holiday Catalog. She shared some ideas for promoting this bundle at Vacation Stamping School.

Cathy was inspired by Australian demonstrator Simone Bartrum, who showcased this bundle at the Share Fair on the Thailand incentive trip. Check out Simone's amazing projects on her blog: here and here. And give Cathy some love over on her Facebook page.

I love Cathy's tip of stamping the tree repeatedly for a fuller image. Cathy's favorite combination is Lemon Lime Twist and Wild Wasabi.
This last card was designed by Simone. (See her original here.) I love all the details on this THREE layer card! Here's the front:

Vacation Stamping School Highlights + Eastern Elegance for the Holidays

In August, we held our annual demonstrator training event (previously called Spring into Stamping, now called Vacation Stamping School). This year, our theme was the Holiday Catalog, and even though we were just under two weeks into the pre-order, we pulled off an amazing event!

In addition to our main stage demonstrations, make and takes, and game show -- we had a lineup of some of the most talented demonstrators on our team to wow us during the Demonstration Fair!  One of my favorites was Linda Yearsley, who breathed new life into the Eastern Elegance Suite with a holiday spin!

 Linda also created masks with the Eastern Medallion dies and sponged through the masks to create a fun background for these cards.

I'll be sharing more projects from Vacation Stamping School this week, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I need to give a huge shout-out to Mary Ellen Stites and Meg Loven  (below with me in the middle) -- my planning partners. We make such a a great team! The way we pull together an event is like magic! Thank you Meg, Mary Ellen, and all of the demonstrators who helped to make this year's Vacation Stamping School so amazing!

VIDEO: Carols of Christmas Glitter Window Card Tutorial

I had forgotten just how busy the summer had been until I went to upload my latest video tutorial and realized that the last video before this was posted in July! Eek! Sorry for my video hiatus! I have lots of videos to catch up on, so stay tuned! 
 VIDEO: Glitter Window Card Tutorial with Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas  ~ 2017 Holiday Catalog ~ www.juliedavison.com
This fun card is one that I demonstrated at our Vacation Stamping School Demonstrator Training event in August. I used window sheets, the multi-purpose adhesive sheets, and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create a glitter window in the front of this Christmas card. It reminds me of a snow globe or a frosted window. The photos don't do the sparkle justice. It's so pretty in real life!
