Now more on the August-December Mini Catalog.  The video below highlights some of the beautiful suites available in the catalog.  I have many favorites!!!  


Speaking of ordering, Stampin’ Up! has made it easier for you!  The Online Store has a new look.  Plus, the new store is mobile friendly so ordering from all devices is much simpler.  You can check out the new Online Store by clicking here.  When viewing the new Online Store, be sure to check in the upper left hand corner for the Shopping With notice.  You should see my name listed.   

While it’s a great time to get a head start preparing for Halloween and Christmas, my next blog post will be using the Gilded Autumn Suite.  This beautiful suite of products is perfect for creating autumn and nature inspired projects.  In the photo below,  the Stampin’ Up! designers are providing ideas for the products.

Spring and Wedding Samples

I thought I would share some wedding and Spring samples.  June is wedding month and here are a few cards for the occasion.  I used the Stamparatus on both cards below to line up the sentiments.  It’s such a great tool for keeping all the stamps in line.  Don’t worry if you did not get a chance to pre-order it.  Get the Stamparatus in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  It’s a great tool to add to your collection.

Some of the new products used include new Glimmer paper, the sentiment from the new stamp set Detailed with Love. The Stamparatus was used to stamp the sentiments on both cards but it was especially needed for the Detailed with Love stamp.  The Springtime Impressions Thinlits was used for the added floral design of the card.  Adding the Glimmer Paper with the Thinlits enhances the flowers.

Below are a few more card samples.  They highlight anniversaries or weddings. 

The new catalog goes live on Friday.  Some new catalogs have been mailed out.  If you did not receive one yet, you can visit my online store on Friday when the catalog goes live.  You can also send me an email if you would like to get a catalog in your hands.
