Free Christmas Sampler PDF The new Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog is in full swing and I immediately fell in love with the Peppermint and Gingerbread Suite of products. I used the designer papers in that suite as a base for this Christmas sampler. It includes the tree die from Whimsical Trees and a few special embellishments. I thought we’d start the season off right with a complete PDF of the measurements and instructions so you can make this sampler for yourself or gift it to someone special. Products can be purchased at lyndafalconer.stampinup.net.
