Visiting with Santa in the days leading up to Christmas is a highlight of the holiday season. In typical Stacey Yacula form, she’s turned that tradition into an irresistibly heartwarming set of images. This six-frame set features Santa and his friends in various configurations — each more adorable than the last. Every selfie is contained within a hand-drawn frame but will also fit perfectly within the confines of the Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics. This set is ideal for creating cards meant to represent a group of senders, but you can also customize the sentiment to match the number of recipients by adding “& You” to the “Merry Christmas to You” greeting for each additional loved one in the family!

Raise your flipper if you’re as enamored by penguins as we are...those adorable faces, their cute built-in tuxedo look, the waddle — just overwhelmingly delightful. This foursome features penguins with an array of holiday accessories along with two tiny heart accents because we simply can’t contain our love for these Christmas cuties.

The coordinating dies are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our dies lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

Simple, timeless, but done in a modern handwritten script to make it a bit more special…that’s what you get with this essential sentiment stamp. The generous size makes it a perfect anchor for last-minute holiday greetings that are still unforgettable. The coordinating die set features an identically sized sentiment die plus a shadow layer that can be used with either the stamp or die for bonus dimension and contrast.

This assortment of seven dies will prove to be such a valuable tool in your stash! Start with a 2 1/4” x 3 1/2” box base (the perfect size for nestling a standard gift card within) and top with a lid featuring a pretty scalloped detail. The finished box measures 3/4” deep, allowing you to tuck other small treats and trinkets in as well. The set also features a scalloped and stitched label, a rounded rectangle that has a stitch inside and outside the cut line producing both a label and creating a window in your box top, a tag, and two sentiment strips. Emboss lines on the box top and bottom make it easy to fold perfectly precise flaps making it easy to adhere. Can you even imagine all the ways you can use these pieces to create custom gift boxes? From Christmas to birthdays to Valentine’s Day (and everything in between), we are so excited to see what you craft with this robust set!
