Thank You with Butterflies!

I am LOVING the new stamps in the latest Annual catalogue!. These are the cards we made last weekend at my catalogue launch. These new butterfly stamps with matching dies are FANTASTIC. Card bases are Bermuda Bay and Watermelon Wonder.

How to stamp the triple stamping set.

Here's some ideas of bows using the new builder bow punch. I made this sampler but idea was on Pinterest - what else have you made with the punch?

The Cutest Little Shopping Bag Ever!

One of our fab new products in our Annual Catalogue is the Gift Bag Punch Board (#135862 $39) - this is sooooo useful! I made the little shopping bags for all my guests at my launch yesterday - aren't they cute!! You can make two of those per 12"x12" paper sheet. I also used the Greetings Thinlits (#1382475 $30) which has three words - 'thanks', 'hello' & 'cheers'. The bags have chocolates in them of cause! lol Contact me today to place an order for any of these items!

These are the three widths on the punch board - all sorts of uses with it! The owl was made using the new Envelope Paper (In Colour collection #138312 - Neutrals #138310 $12.75)

Cake Anyone???

YES this is a cardboard (fat free??? lol) cake - I just ABSOLUTELY love the new Cutie Pie Thinlits from the new catalogue (page 66). Here I have teamed it up with the Sweet Stacked Project Kit cake stand. I went to our Team training today and we all took 21 items exactly the same and you 'swap' with 20 other people and come home with 21 different items - a great way to be able to show you different styles and products and of cause ideas with new products out of the new Annual Catalogue. the stand and the 'party' banner are all from the kit - I added the Watermelon Wonder lace ribbon.

Everything on the cake boxes are made from the dies in the Cutie Pie thinlit die set - there's lots of other things too!

the stamp set 'Sweet Stack' has the 'cake' stamp in it. And I used the new envelope paper (pg 149) to make the bows on the boxes

Here is a Delightful Dijon version - the "LOVE YOU TO PIECES" stamp is also from the Sweet Stack stamp set - too CUTE!!

LOVE this bow die that's in the thinlits set!

Lashings of Gold and Silver

Every 2 years Stampin' Up! change the Colour Family DSP 12" x 12" stacks and this time they are DIVINE!! The Neutrals include Gold and Silver rather than Whisper White and Very Vanilla - and they are beautiful. The patterns this year are a thicker stripe, a small flower, a medium dot and a lovely small written script. I used the strip on the above card to create a chevron pattern, accented with our satin ribbon. Have you found anything yummy you LOVE in the new catalogue??
