I love that Stampin’ Up! is offering Christmas Bliss in July. It’s a fun, fresh Christmas set with a variety of greetings and styles. It has both images and sentiments, making it great for both cards and treat packaging.  Whether you stick to using reds and greens, or you dabble with non-traditional holiday colors as I have, you can’t go wrong with this cute set!

Look What You Can Do with Designer Paper!

Drab to Fab Book Covers

Need a fresh take on décor? Look to our Designer Series Paper! Making storage spaces, such as bookcases, look new and creative can be a bit challenging. First, you need to spruce up a stuffy bookcase and then tackle the books that never coordinate. Instead of calling the publishing house about their cover designs, create your own! Our artist used our inspiring Designer Series Paper to dress up her books, turning boring storage to chic décor in minutes! And the Designer papers are on sale right now…Buy 3 get 1 free!!

How to: 

  1. Paint an empty wood crate.
  2. Choose a few books you’d like to re-cover and cut your favorite Designer Series Paper to the height of the book. You’ll usually need more than one sheet of paper.
  3. Score the Designer Series Paper at 2″ on either side for the flaps of the cover (so you don’t have to adhere the paper to the book). The basics of this project are really simple, giving you time for artistry.


  • You can find wood crates at craft or hardware stores—or get them for free at warehouses or online.
  • Stack several crates on top of each other to build an asymmetrical bookcase; let’s face it, stackable storage is the best solution for dorm rooms and small rooms.
  • Change the book covers with the season. Our Designer Series Paper is always bright and trendy so you never have to search for colors or ideas.
  • Embellish your book covers with punches, stamps, and die cuts.

After you’ve revived your bookcase, consider what other corners and spaces in your home you can turn from drab to fab!
