Catching Up and Looking Back

Hi Everyone!

Today I am going to go back and catch up with some things!  But let's get the business things in first!

Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog is still active and popular.  It has such a variety of new things, it is hard not to get one of each!  But remember for every $50.00 purchase from the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog, you will receive a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Yes, I said catalogs.  The 2nd release is here and it has some additional FREE items!  So cute!

But wait!  Starting March 1st through the 31st, Stampin' Up! is offering Sale-A-Bration Coordination!  What is that?  Well, it will consist of dies for these stamp sets seen in the Sale-A-Bration catalogs: Lasting Lily (Lily Framelits Dies), Hello Cupcake (Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies), So Hoppy Together (Hop Around Framelits Dies) and in the 2nd release, Painted Seasons stamp set (Four Seasons Framelits Dies) which is a bundle with some beautiful papers.  Also in the Coordination selections is More than Words Photopolymer Stamp Set, and a new Story Label Punch.  What a deal!  These will be available for purchase, but since I got to pre-order them, I am sooo grateful for the the dies!  Saves on the fussy cutting, which I am not great at!

If you need any of the above mentioned catalogs, they can be seen by clicking the catalogs on my sidebar or let me know and I will get you one.  I have a limited number left though.

Now on to sharing my January 27th get together.  I held my first official "Card Camp".  I supplied everything for 5 cards.  Here are the cards that I made as samples...

This first one is one that I used for a great Video Boot Camp held by Connie Stewart and Jackie Bolhuis.  I made a YouTube video of it..not ready to share to the world just yet - soon though!

So all my gals took off on their own.  Here are just a few pictures of them and our gathering complete with our food!  You know how important food is!  Ha!

Here is our food...all I can say is Big Yums!
Spaghetti
And desserts!

We just have a blast!  Guess what?  This Sunday it is already Craftin' Gals Sunday!  Woo Hoo!

So, until next time when I may reveal my first videos (maybe)...Be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper!
 


Love Is All Around

Oh my, the month of LOVE!  What a lovely month it is!  We here in Southern California have had more rainy days since the New Year than we have had in years.  No complaints, but let's hope we don't slide down the canyon!  Ha!

I wanted to share with you some Valentines projects first. 

This one I cased from the New Occasions catalog.  Page 4 had the most lovely cards, so I wanted to somewhat replicate one of them.  I used All My Love Designer Paper (# 148576), the Forever Lovely stamp set (#148624) and The Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies for flowers (#148526).

As you can see, not exactly like the catalog, but I just kept getting inspired as I went along!

Next is one that I used a retired Christmas die, but loved the "theme" of "lighting my fire".  The inside is from the Meant To Be Die (it is a bundle) (Occasions page 6 #148626 or #150587 for bundle).
IMG_1865 su IMG_1866
Then I made a mixed media sign...this hangs on our office door.  IMG_1810
I used the Large Letters Framelits (#141712) and Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers (#144177) both in the Annual Catalog.  Oh, and the Heart Epoxy Droplets (#146583) from the Occasions catalog.

Well, that is all for today.  I will be out of town the 7th through the 11th visiting our sweet grandkids.  Yay!  So, until next time, be kind to one another and make time for CREATING WITH PAPER!


New Year, New Products, New Ideas!

Hello, Hello, Hello!

I didn't fall of the face of the earth (at least yet), but gosh we have been sooo busy the last three months.  Those of you that have stuck with me during my blogging block, thank you!  I am back now and hope to start getting the mojo going!

I wanted to share some Stampin' Up! news with you all.  The new Occasions catalog is live now and of course along with it comes Sale-A-Bration!  You can click on the pictures of the catalogs in the sidebar to see all the NEW and exciting products that are out.  Sale-A-Bration is such a great thing...purchase $50.00 from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs and get a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  There are some very cute things in there...so be sure to look at all of the new products, but don't forget about the Annual Catalog!  Sale-A-Bration goes through March 31st, and the Occasions is good until the new Annual Catalog comes out in May!  I can't imagine what that will be like!  More new products!  Yippee!

I just recently received some of the New Occasions products, so I am going to get right in and start using some of them so I can show you some possibilities!  For now, enjoy this cute video from Stampin' Up! introducing the new catalog.

 

Well, that is all for today...I will see you soon.  Until then, be kind to one another and remember to make time for Creating With Paper!
