The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration



I'm often asked about the best all around stamp set or which stamp set a new stamper should start with. You know I love stamps, so I'd never say that there is one stamp set that covers all the bases, but the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog does have a stamp set is about as close as it gets. I think you'll love the Celebrations Tidings stamp set that is part of the Plaid Tidings Suite.

If you are new to stamping, the Celebration Tidings stamp set is a great place to start since it has greetings and images that span the holidays and occasions from Autumn through to Valentine's Day.

If you are an avid stamper, like me, you won't want to overlook this gem. Add on the coordinating Celebration Labels Dies and Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and they'll bring you tidings of joyful creativity. Heat embossing and coloring techniques are ideal for this suite!

The tutorial I'm sharing features an interchangeable, multi-season, decor frame. This frame would make an amazing gift. Who do you know that would love to display this in their home? I can think of a bunch of people on my gift list!

Multi-Season Decor Frame


1) Remove all the backing pieces from inside the frame. Leave the glass in the frame. Leave the mat if you selected a larger frame with a 4" x 6" mat.

2) Place a 4" x 6" piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper into the frame behind the glass and add the backing pieces back into the frame and secure it in place with the frame tabs or clips. The 4" x 6" Plaid Tidings paper can be left for all the seasons or change out with new patterns for each season.

3) Cut Basic Black cardstock to 3" x 1". Use Paper Snips to cut a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet to 3" x 1". Remove one side of the backing from the Foam Adhesive Sheet and adhere it o the Basic Black cardstock.

4) Use the Playful Alphabet Dies to die cut the letters "H", "M", and "E" from Basic Black cardstock with Foam Adhesive Sheet attached. Do not remove the second backing layer.

5) Repeat steps with 4" x 1" Whisper White cardstock and 4" x 1" Foam Adhesive Sheet. Die cut 4 of the letter "O". There are two letter "O's" in the set so you can run two at at time.

6) Die cut four more letter "O" pieces from four different patterns of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. Select plaid patterns that coordinate with each of the Halloween, Autumn, Christmas, and Valentine's Day themes. These "O's" will be paper only, no Foam Adhesive Sheet.

7) Remove the backing from the Foam Adhesive Sheet on the "O" die cuts. Carefully line up a plaid "O" die cut without the Foam Adhesive to one with the Foam Adhesive.

8) Die cut Whisper White cardstock with the Celebrations Labels Die that is about 4-1/2" x 3-1/2".

9) Center the letters spelling "HOME" on the die cut label without adhering them in place. They are just there as a place holder for now.

10) Carefully stamp "sweet home" under the die cut "HOME" using the individual lower case alphabet stamps from the Make a Difference stamp set with Jet Black StazOn ink. Practice on scrap paper first to get a feel for lining up the letters how you like. Remove the "HOME" letters and set aside.

11) Emboss the die cut label with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

12) Line up the "HOME" letters on the label so they are centered where you want them again. One at a time, remove the backing from Foam Adhesive on the back of the "H", "M", and "E" and adhere them in place. Do not adhere the "O", it's just there as a place holder for now.

13) Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the die cut label centered on the glass in the frame.

14) Stamp the spider and pumpkin images from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set on Whisper White cardstock with Jet Black StazOn ink.

15) Die cut the spider with the coordinating die from the Celebrations Labels Dies.

16) Add self-adhesive Iridescent Pearls to the spider body and head. Add to the coordinating "O" with Glue Dots.

17) Color the larger pumpkin with Watercolor Pencils. Then cut it out using Paper Snips. Add to the coordinating "O" with Glue Dots.

18) Stamp the heart from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set on Petal Pink cardstock with Flirty Flamingo ink. Die cut with coordinating die. Adhere to coordinating "O" with Glue Dots.

19) Die cut small branch from the Celebration Labels Dies from Shaded Spruce cardstock. Adhere to coordinating "O" with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Add Basic Pearl Jewels.

20) To make the seasonal "O" images interchangeable you'll need mini magnets or small hook and loop dots/strips. Adhere magnets or hook and loop to the back of one "O" at the left and right edges so they don't show. Use the placement of these to guide where you place the corresponding magnet or hook and loop pieces on the frame label.

21) Remove the first "O" and place the corresponding magnet or hook and loop piece on their mate on the frame. Then adhere the "O" onto them. Repeat for each "O".
