SNEAK PEEK of the 2014-2015 Catalog!

Last night was the 2014 Catalog Premier! Demonstrators gathered at movie theaters around the country to watch the live event in Long Beach, CA. I went to the event in Eagan with my awesome upline Betty, downline Christy and Sandy, and sister demos Brenda, Debbie, Lisa and Linda. We were the first to see the new catalog, product demonstrations, and samples using some of the new products! And...we all got a copy of the new catalog! WOOHOO!


Stampin' Up! told us we can share a picture of the cover, but nothing inside! Sorry to tease you, but isn't it awesome?!? How many new things can you see on the cover? I can't wait to start ordering from this catalog! There are so many cool new things inside!

We also got a stamp set to take home! I can't wait to get mine mounted and ink it up! I can't show it to you yet, but I will as soon as I can.

Until then, don't forget to order stamps and accessories that are being retired before they're gone!

USE IT UP You're Lovely Petite Pairs Stepped Up Sympathy Card



I found an extra stamped image in my scrap box, so I decided to make another card but step it up a little:


Stamps: You're Lovely (Sale-A-Bration), Petite Pairs

Colors: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White

Accessories: Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (Sale-A-Bration, but will be in the 2014-2015 Catalog!), Deco Labels Framelits, 3/8" Stitched Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals

The embossed card stock is Primrose Petals, the ribbon is Raspberry Ripple and I used both colors on the stamped image. Not a really big difference, but it dresses it up a bit.

Just Got Back From Florida

I just got back from a week in Florida with my sisters! Other than being bit by NoSeeEms and having a reaction to the bites, it was an awesome trip! We rented a house in Cape Coral:



The pool


The dock (it is on a canal)

I hope we make this an annual thing! It was so nice being in the sun and mid-80's for temps every day except yesterday when it was raining. Now we're home and it's back to reality! At least the majority of snow is gone!

Paper Pumpkin February In The Bag

I haven't really cared for the non-card projects from Paper Pumpkin, but the February one! It's called "In The Bag" and included everything to make 5 bags! They are really sturdy, a nice size, and so easy to make!



I've only made one so far, with "Thanks". The letters are pre-printed, but if you run out, it would be easy enough to flip over ones you aren't going to be using and stamp new letters on them. Or stamp something besides letters. 

And this kit included Photopolymer stamps! 

The refill (no stamps or ink spot) is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers to purchase:

How I Organize My Paper Pumpkin Clear Mount Stamps

All of the stamps for Paper Pumpkin from the beginning through January have been Clear Mount. I have been putting them in a Clear Mount Stamp Case (Item #119105 on page 197 of the catalog, 4 cases for $5.95). Here's what it looks like: 


Front


Inside


Back

My case is full, but that's OK, because in February, the stamps switched to Photopolymer!

Paper Pumpkin January Love Notes

The January Paper Pumpkin kit was "Love Notes". I thought they were really cute, but kind of hard to work with. I wanted to do some of the cards with the color on the outside and the kraft to the inside, but I couldn't get the stickers to stay. Oh well. They're still cute!

Paper Pumpkin December Real Life Journal

 Another non-card Paper Pumpkin kit. I thought about making it into cards, but haven't had the time to work on it. But I want to keep all the months in order on here, so here are pictures of the December kit:

Back to the Paper Pumpkin kits! Here is the kit for November, "Noel".
