Catalog Celebration!

Last Tuesday I had a Stampin' Up! new catalog celebration! We had a lot of fun. Besides munching on yummy snacks and drinking alittle bubbly we made three projects. Two of them were in the latest Stampin' Success, which is a monthly magazine that SU demonstrators get chock full of ideas, inspiration and business tips.

We made a Matchbox with the Sizzix die in Bermuda Bay and Whisper White using Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry inks. We punched a window and adhered acetate inside so that we could fill it with jelly beans! Embellishments include Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, white tafetta ribbon and the new Rich Razzleberry dotted grosgrain. Then card is a project from Stampin' Success. We started with Crushed Curry textured cardstock and scallop punched one edge. We stamped a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes on the Old Olive strip and used Chocolate Chip for the stems. Then we used a variety of punches, stamps and Felt Fusion for the flowers. Quick and easy card.

Everyone who attended received the brand new catalog! And I gave out the retired catalog for a new little promotion that I am having... Pass It On -- Give the old catalog to a friend and when they place a $25 product order with me, YOU get a $5 gift certificate. Let me know if you'd like a new and old catalog by emailing me at

The Rich Razzleberry project in the middle is actually a bookmark. It is so stinkin' easy and makes a great giveaway to bookclub friends, kids who love to read (and even those who don't), and anyone else that are book lovers. Here are the easy instructions:

Cut a piece of cardstock 4"x4", score at 2" both ways. I used Rich Razzleberry. Crease well with your bone folder.
Punch lower right corner using the 5-Petal Punch and cut out the top left corner.
Stamp a 2.5"x2.5" Whisper White cardstock randomly with complementary inks. I used the leaves from the Branching Out set with Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo.Then use the Scallop Edge Punch to punch two adjoining sides. Adhere it behind the punched corner.
Next fold in the flaps and adhere them together. Do not adhere to the Whisper White.
Your bookmark should open like this...
I added a Mellon Mambo punched flower to the center. Here it is on my daughter's book. Cute, huh?

I am off to work on tomorrow's Crafter's Club project. We'll be using two cool templates. It's going to be a super fun to put together.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week and be sure to add some creativity to it!
