Ornament punch substitute

Yes, the dreaded day came and went.  The Stampin' Up! holiday mini catalog is no more, and the ornament punch went out with it.  I have a very good feeling that the ornament punch will make a grand new appearance with the new annual catalog that comes out in July.  Those of you lucky enough to buy a punch before December 31st, are very happy indeed.  Those of you that weren't able to buy a punch, have no fear.   This weekend, I will be posting instructions on how to make your own ornament substitute by using 2 other current Stampin' Up! punches.   I was able to make a shape that was virtually the same as the original (less the ornament top).

Of course, I will NOT be using the ornament punch in any of my new tutorials until it is reintroduced into the current Stampin' Up! catalog.  There are more new punches to play with now!  I won't be getting them until this coming week and then I hope to share some ideas using those punches.  It's year end for my job, so I'll be working late night hours for the next week, but hopefully, will still be able to carve out some time in the late evening to work on tutorials.

I currently have 3 ideas done for the new valentines class.  I don't know if it will be complete by Monday, but I will try.   Thanks to everyone that continues to check back and follow my blog.

Hi Kim,

Never fear you can still use the ornament shape if you have the holiday mini's mover and shaper holiday collection dies and a big shot. SU decided to let us continue ordering all the Big Shot materials and quite a few other items from the Holiday mini catalog since they are planning to add them to the July catalog (that was the last word I had anyway - lol). Since the ornament shape is a part of that collection you can use it in good conscience.

Hugs from a fellow demo and thanks for all the inspiration you share here on your blog. So glad I found you out here in the ether.
