Hello again!

2010-11_Idea_Book_and_Catalog So, it’s  been awhile since I’ve posted… Since then the new Stampin’ Up! catalog has been release and it is gorgeous! There isn’t a page in it that I don’t have something marked for my wish list!

There are so many project ideas that I can’t wait to start creating. I love that Stampin’ Up! has a supply list available for every project. It makes it really easy to CASE the catalog.

Definitely_Decorative_Brochure I’m loving the new Definitely Decorative catalog too. The chalkboard elements are so cool.  And the new styles are really fun. Just look at this cover… perfect for over a desk. What a fun and inexpensive way to add whimsy and practicality to your home. There are some holiday pieces from Halloween to Christmas that you will remember from last year.

Every year I have a fun Catalog Celebration at my house. Besides the catalog, everyone will receive a catalog kit, and special coupons. We will do a couple of Make and Take projects and have munchies. It’s not a party without games and prizes, right?

SANY1301 There is still a few weeks left for the Summer Mini. Here’s a card I made recently to thank some brides for their business.

The card base is Almost Amethyst with layers of Whisper White and Blush Blossom. The stamp sets are Blissful Bride and Vintage Labels (which was a Sale-a-Bration set).

You can just barely see the glitter on the ribbons of the wedding dress. I used markers to color the flowers and border along the bottom.

Meanwhile, I am impatiently awaiting my first order from this catalog… I focused on the Play Date collection. Love it!!! I will be designing a class or two around these products. My next order will be all about the vintage items. I am just drooling over that catalog…. can you tell?

Next week I will be getting crafty since it’s my week off. I will really try to get some more posts up on the blog too!

I’ve started selling my cards and other papercrafts at a local scrapbooking store, Arts and Scraps. This is my favorite shop and Denise (owner) and Lisa, her right hand gal, are fabulous! If you live in Clark County or the Portland Metro area, you gotta stop by. She also sells antiques and vintage goodies.

Thank you for visiting!
