Best Year Ever and Big Day SAB Sneak Peek! Celebrate Your Big Day With Cake-Celebrate your big dayIt is so easy to do with some brand new paper and stamps being featured in the new Occasions Catalog  and SAB brochure next Tuesday, January 6th.

I was able to get the paper Best Year Ever, Big Day Stamp Set, ribbon and Pom Pom Trim free from the SAB Promotion. Doesn’t the happy pastel colors just scream to you, pull you in, make you happy? That is just what the receiver of this card will do when they open this card on their birthday. And what about that cute Calypso Coral Pom Pom Trim ? Let’s Party! Don’t  forget the matching colored ribbon. Yummy!

Supplies I have used to make this card include:

Blackberry Bliss, Butterflies and Gold: A SAB Sneak Peek!

I can not get enough of the Blackberry Bliss, and gold color scheme. Add one of the butterfly framelits, and you have a classic card. love you

For this card I began with the beautiful cut out found in the Artisan Embellishment Kit and mounted it onto a Blackberry Bliss card stock card base. I took a piece of gold foil that was a scrap from another project and layered it alternately with a piece of Blackberry Bliss and another old foil scrap. In addition, I made several cards with this same color motif.

It’s your day came from the Fabulous 4 Stamp Set and is the focal sentiment of this card as wellit's your day

Add some pearls from the Artisan Embellishment Kit to enhance the butterfly ‘s body and gold satin ribbon for a bow and the finished product is gorgeous!

Some of the products I have used on these two cards are from the Annual catalog as well as the new Occasions Catalog that goes live Jan 6th. Take a Look.  After January 6th, any purchase made that is over$50 before shipping, entitles the buyer to  a free item from the Sale -A -Bration catalog!

Sale- A- Bration and New Occasions Catalog, Bow Builder Punch!

Sale- A Bration is only days away when the new occasions Catalog goes live. As a demonstrator, I have been privy to both brochures and I would  say I have had a great time playing with , creating and sharing  my newest toys.Bow builder punch From the new Occasions Catalog 2015

One of my favorites is the brand new Bow Builder Punch highlighted in the new Occasions Catalog. How cute are these little bows ? They are so simple to assemble and add so much to any project. With this punch you can build baby sized bow from cardstock or Designer Series Paper . Their finished size is 2 1/4″ x /7/8″. On this card the bows are the star while the sentiment is inside the card.

The Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim make bright , shiny borders of trim or individual sequins that can add a splash of color wherever you choose.

The Paper is  Birthday Bash Speciality Designer Series Paper. With this pack you will receive 12 sheets: 2 each of 5 double -sided designs; one each of 2 single sided embossed gold foil sheets. This paper compliments our Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Tangello Twist and Whisper white cardstock.

Some materials needed for this card include:



Lotus Blossom Sale-A-Bration Product Sneak Peek!

Lotus Bossom Sweet Dreams DSP from the  Ocassions CattyThe Lotus Blossom Stamp set was a free product gained from buying $50 worth of product. Beginning january 6th, this stamp set could be yours as well.

I am loving this stamp set when paired with the Sweet Dreams Designer Papers. Both will début on Jan 6th. Completing the look includes a half doily, some Bakers Twine and Candy Dots! In addition, the rules of layering apply, leaving increments of 1/4″ between each of the  layers. It is so easy to decide what those color layers will be. Just look at your paper and choose colors from within that design and you will have a fail safe project. Add what ever sentiment is appropriate on the inside of your card.

New and Exciting Surprises in 2015

As the holidays fast approach, I wish you all good times, good cheer, and a happy new year! Great opportunities are waiting for you from Stampin’ Up! in the coming weeks.

At the beginning of December, I traveled to Portland to see the unveiling of our new Occasions Catalog and I am humbled to say. . . Merry Christmas to me!  I could not resist so many of the new stamps, tools, papers and inks! I came home and have been creating for days. There are exciting surprises in 2015 coming up.

Of course I will be sharing all my new creations on my blog, at club classes, Pinterest and FaceBook. Please know that you can get gift certificates from me that can be used during the month of January – June of next year.

Another idea for gifts is to pre-order Paper Pumpkin subscriptions and send your favorite crafter a special gift that keeps on giving. I just ordered my 7 year old Granddaughter her own Pumpkin Subscription for her birthday. In addition, every month I give my Pumpkin customers ways to pump up their pumpkin as well as a link to what I pin online. Hey we all need a little inspiration, sometime!

Were you aware that this is the best time to earn free product from Stampin’Up! because for every $50 you spend between January 6th – March 31,2015, you can choose a free item from our Sale-A Bration catalog which will be given free of charge with our new Occasions Catalog at our next Club Class. After Jan 6, both catalogs will be made public on my blog and online store as well. Believe me when I say there is something fabulous for everyone!
