Card making can be so easy when you are using pretty patterned paper!

The colors are already chosen for you and the patterns add instant interest.

The July-December Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog has some beautiful designer series papers, shown in the video below, that are perfect for Christmas card making and crafting all year long. 

I’ll flip through every sheet but I’ve added “chapters” to the video so that you can skip ahead to see just the packs you’re interested in.

Once you click above on the “Watch on YouTube” and you’re on YouTube, click the “Show More” in the description underneath the video and then you’ll be able to click on the time stamp next to each paper pack that you’re interested in seeing.
