New Year - New Card Ideas - New Catalogue Launch just for you!!

Hi everyone - in my part of the West Coast we have lost our snow and some very dead looking grass is now showing through . . . . hoping warmer weather helps bring our green back to life!

In our stamping world we don't have to wait for spring to come as we can create it with our cards and scrapbook pages - and with the help of so many new and wonderful products available to us in the brand new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and its companion Sale-a-Bration flyer (that's all the FREE stuff!).

You are invited to my Catalogue Launch Party! Come and visit next week and play with new products from the catalogue and choose your favourites -  my studio will be open on Friday January 27th from noon to 4:30 pm (stop in even if its on your way home) and Saturday January 28th from Noon to 4:00 pm.

Please drop by, pick up the new catalogue, share some treats and make a card! Learn how you can "watercolour" your images like a pro! Bring your camera to take pictures of your favourites so you can create them again at home. Enter into the draw for some fun  prizes!! And visit with my Stampin' Up! demo friends - Juanita will be sharing the dates with me, and maybe Tanya (depending on her little one's schedule).

I attended a team event last week where we made cards and got to "play" with so many of the new products. My favourites (so far) are the Party Animal Suite for the bright colours and fun stamps and framelits; the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Framelits bundle (I love dragonflies!); Falling in Love Designer Series Paper (so soft and pretty); Urban Underground Suite for the guys in our lives; and the new Watercolour Pencils for colouring in stamped images (think Beautiful You) as well as the awesome Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper that is FREE during Sale-a-Bration when you spend $60.00 (along with some other amazing free products).

Here's some samples of cards we created last weekend using the new products:

Beautiful You; Balloon Adventures; Suite Sentiments
Lift Me Up; Dragonfly Dreams; Avant Garden
The next few cards are ones from my crafting space - the Hey Chick Stamp Set makes such fun cards - guaranteed to have you smile and the Avant Garden has some lovely images for layering your stamping and creating new colour combinations! I will have more to show you by next week so come on by :-)
For the next two cards, I used Avant Garden with Serene Scenery Designer Paper (6"x 6") Stack to create some great backgrounds just by cutting the paper - and the leftover strip trimmed the envelope to match - winning combination for sure!
If you can't make it to my event, but know what you'd like to order then use the Shop Now button, or click here to go to my store and have your products sent right to your door . . . or send me a quick email to have your order added to my Launch party orders.
Happy Stamping!

Happy New Year with lots of NEW to share with you!

Happy New Year to each one of you! I am so glad to have you in my life and looking forward to sharing some great new ideas with you in 2017

Before I say good-bye to 2016, I wanted to share a card that we made on the last "Make it Monday" in December. The design is great for any season, and any reason - and will help you use some of those patterned papers that you are keeping to use "someday" - take a look at this card, and grab your papers now, cut them into strips, add them to some solid cardstock - stamp a greeting and you've got an awesome card ready to send! I will give you the exact measurements if you send me an email!

I added a little strip of Gold Glitter paper, because we all love some sparkle for the holidays!
Big NEWS - the Occasions Catalogue is here with all the Spring colours and designs and along with it the Sale-a-Bration event (until March 31st). This is the BEST time of the year to buy as you get to choose any one item in the Sale-a-Bration catalogue free for each $60.00 you spend - no limits - any time you spend $60.00 until March 31st, you can pick an item free . . . .  take a look at the links on my sidebar or click here and choose your favourite free products now!
The cover alone makes me think of spring (or maybe it's because I am wishing the snow would go away since Christmas/New Years is over!)
Here's the video Stampin' Up! put together - it captures so many of the awesome new products!
Some of the highlights in this catalogue for me? How about the new Watercolor Pencils? Colour your stamped image, take a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter over the penciled area, and you have instant 'Watercolouring" - it's awesome!! And with the FREE Sale-a-Bration Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper - you've got lots of colouring fun ahead for card or scrapbook layout backgrounds!
Like Dragonflies? Take a look at the Dragonfly Dreams Stamps and coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Framelits - some of the designs are simply amazing (and there are Bumble Bees too)!! 
Got some men in your life?? You will love the new Urban Underground Suite of products - with the coordinating stamps, embellishments. I love the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Paper in real guy colours! The Nailed It Bundle of stamps and framelits is perfect to go with the papers!

Ready to order? Then click here or send me an email to add your wish list items to my next order!

My next "Make it Monday" class will be on January 16th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Please RSVP if you are coming - message, phone or email is good - so I know how many kits to prepare! These monthly sessions are all about learning some quick and easy card tricks - perfect for new card makers, or for those looking for some quick ideas to get some cards made up and ready to send. Sessions are $5.00 for the evening, or free with orders over $25.00
