Stampin’ Up! Retreat Gifts & the Christmas Gifting Kit (FYI – it’s awesome!)

Good morning from North Georgia – we’re on the first full day of Retreating and Eating!!  And Yakking & Chatting!  🙂

For all the ladies who are attending the retreat, Amy and I gathered up some fun gift bag goodies!  Amy got a bag printed with Krew Retreat 2022…

…and then we got to filling them up!  There was a Plaid Stampin’ Up! mug – a Stampin’ Up! crocheted hat – a Pop Up Trash Bin – a pack of Red & White Glimmer Paper – Liquid Glue – Dimensionals – Paper Snips – and Chocolate.  😉  AND – everyone got a the very cool Christmas Gifting Kit!

I needed a kit for myself – I mean….Gift-Card-giving season is right around the corner – and this kit is PERFECT for making NINE super cute gift card/tag holders!

When I opened the box I found everything I needed to put the tags together – including an amazing stamp set!

It took me like…literally!…30 minutes to put the tags together!  Yes – that easy and quick!

I’m not sure which tag is my fave.  This one is a winner with its Christmas Tree and pine boughs…

The gift card holder is attached by a length of twine – green in this case – and it comes assembled in the box!

I love the tag with the deer and branches, too!

This one brings in more of the Mint Macaron – which is a wonderful color combo with Shaded Spruce and Real Red, don’t you think? 🙂

The final design is certainly in the hunt for being my fave – I love the Mint Macaron “berries”!  All the tags assemble in the exact same way – adhere the die cut to the pre-printed tag (remove the die cut star/deer/tree first) – then pop a sentiment over the top with Dimensionals!

Then you adhere a round tag to the Gift Card Holder and attach the holder to the back of the tag with the twine.  Easy peasy!

Gift cards are always the right size – the right color – allergen free even!  But it’s also nice to gift them in a way that is special.

Another cool thing – all the “round” sentiments (that go on the tag on the gift card holder itself) are interchangeable.  As are all the sentiments designed for the front.  Which means…you can mix and match between the great sentiments to perfectly suit your intended recipient! 🤙🤙🤙

One thing to note – like all the kits in the Kit Collection – they’re available While Supplies Last!  As we get closer to Christmas – I can see this particular kit selling out.  So…don’t tarry if you need tags and gift card giftability!

We’ve got a lot of great kits – but here’s a selection of the ones aimed straight at Christmas! 🙂

Happy Get-Ahead-of-the-Christmas-Rush!!
