Tomorrow is the Stampin’Up New Catalog Kick Off at my home in Lino Lakes. I’m really excited about everything that Stampin’Up will be offering in the Accessories Section of the catalog. Oh, but where to begin! I feel like I’ve just strolled into the 31 Flavors Store – how can I possibly pick what I want to get first! lol! I KNOW that some of you will feel the exact same way so I will be creating some product shares so we can all enjoy a little bit of everything in our paper and accessories department. Since I can’t post this information in advance, stay tuned to my blog for further information.

I do have some cards to share . . . this is what we will be making at tomorrow’s FREE Make and Takes. They are so quick and easy to make, but oh so pretty! (at least in my opinion, anyway . . . . ) This first one uses a stamp set from our Level One Hostess Section. The stamp set is called Because I Care. I used a brand new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called Vintage Wallpaper. GORGEOUS!! The flower and sentiment are stamped with a new deep brown ink called Early Espresso. The inside of this card uses a second generation impression of this stamp. The paper is Confetti White and Baja Breeze. The main image panel is popped up on Dimensionals.

My next card uses the new stamp set called Friends Never Fade and a new word set that is totally punch friendly called Perfect Punches. I LOVE any sentiment that can be punched out, don’t you? The Designer Series Paper that you see coordinates with the Friends Never Fade stamp set. I LOVE it when Stampin’Up does this. I’m addicted to everything coordinating!! I used Pumpkin Pie paper for the base of my card, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip ink and the Wide Oval Punch to punch out my sentiment. The white paper panels are in Naturals White.

I do hope you can drop in to pick up your new catalog and enjoy creating the cards. My long-distance customers . . . do not worry, your catalog is already on it’s way to you. If you are in need of a Stampin’Up catalog, please e-mail me. The catalog is FREE when you place at least a $50 order . . . or you can purchase it for $10 and that INCLUDES shipping and handling.

Today is the last day to become a demonstrator for $99. How is it that you’ve been able to resist?? Please e-mail me if your resistance is breaking down. I would love to help you be the best you can be as a Stampin’Up Demonstrator.
