Simply Sunday: Trimming the Town Slimline Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my gosh … can you believe it is the 6th of December already? WOW At times (not always) this year has seemed to fly by … I hope you are all safe, healthy and ready for the holidays!

I have a new card layout I’d like to share with you today along with a big announcement from Stampin’ Up! Let’s begin with their announcement as I have two projects to share with you today …


Both of the items I will be sharing today are on the retirement list, let’s begin with the Slimline card … I’ve done these years ago (before someone gave them a fancy name … lol) I think they are fun because they are different from our normal size yet they fit nicely into a business size envelope!

Ok … a little hard to see but there is a Early Espresso card base … 8″ width x 8-1/2″length …. scored at 4′ on the width length and fold in half. My Pool Party mat measures 3-3/4″ x 8-1/4″ and then my Trimming the Town designer paper measures 3-1/2″ by 8″ …. I had a hard time cutting this designer paper pattern because it just looked so cool, but this layout gave me large pieces to work with and show how beautiful this really is.

That cute greeting is actually cut from another pattern found in the Trimming the Town Designer paper! Join me for a LIVE event where I go through the Holiday catalog highlighting what is going to retire and many, many samples!!

My second project is the Christmas Countdown Kit … this cute Advent type calendar is perfect for hiding those sweet treats as you count down the days to Christmas. Here is what the kit offers ….

I teamed up the kits with the Trimming the Town Designer Series paper. I am using the pattern that I used on my Slimline Card to highlight that pretty paper. I used one of the pieces from the kit as a template …

Thank you for joining me today, and I hope you will join me tomorrow at 7pm on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page for a walk through the catalog as I highlight the retiring items.

Have an amazing day ~
