It's getting close! Are you excited?

Only 3 days to go until the new Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue is live.  I'm so excited!  There are some amazing new products and colours coming out - I know you are going to love them all.

Have you received your catalogue in the mail yet?  You should have, if you have purchased from me in the last year.  If you live in Canada and want one, email me or leave a comment on this blog post.  I'll be happy to send you one.

Today I'm sharing a card that show cases the Nature's Poem Suite of products.  I just love this stamp set with the coordinating Framelits.  The card shows off one of the new In Colours - Grapefruit Grove - which has quickly become my favourite.  Doesn't the orange colour make you smile!

You'll be able to order from the new catalogue starting at 11am on June 1st!  You can order through my Online Store or by email me.  Which every way you order, make sure you use the host code NWKYJSJT and I'll send you a set of cards with instructions as a Thank You. If you order is over $200, please don't use the host code - you'll get Stampin' Rewards, but I'll still send you the same Thank You gift!

Catalogue Launch and Open House

I'm holding my Catalogue Launch and Open House on June 9th from 1-4pm.  If you are in the Ladysmith, BC area, come and check out the new products, make a card and enjoy some refreshments.  RSVP by June 7th so that I have enough kits made for the Make and Take Cards.  I hope you'll be able to drop by!

Paper and Ribbon Share

This year I'm offering a paper and ribbon share from the new Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue.  You're going to love all of the new designer series papers and ribbons in the catalogues!  I know I do!  

For this ribbon and paper share, I've selected a sampler from the 29 new patterned papers and 35 new ribbons and trim. If you were to purchase all the Designer Series Paper in my offering it would cost you $335 and the ribbon would cost you $345 so it's so much better to join the share and get a little bit of everything. 

Here's how it works: 
I purchase all the paper and ribbons and divide it between the members of the share. There are 8 members for each share so as soon as I have 8 people it will form a group. I have focussed my share on 29 ribbons and 16 papers and you will receive a piece of each paper and a sample of each ribbon for a much lower price! You can join either ribbon or paper shares or BOTH! You will receive a total of 96 sheets of Designer Series Paper cut to 6" x 6" for a cost of $43 plus mailing if needed ($5).You will receive a total of 45 yards of ribbon at a cost of $43 plus mailing ($5). Orders will be taken starting on April 28 and sales will end on May 31st. I will purchase all the materials on June 1st. I will be collecting the fee after May 25th in keeping with the rules of Stampin' Up! You can pay by PayPal or e-transfer. I will contact you to arrange your payment once you have signed up.In keeping with the rules governing my demonstratorship I can't share the pictures of the paper and ribbon but here's what included:

Lilypad Lake

Here's another sneak peek from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  My husband and I have a sailboat so when I saw this stamp set with the coordinating framelits, I couldn't resist.  Today's card makes me feel happy.  I think it is the lovely bright colours that are part of the new In Colours - Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick.

I love the wavy lines of the ocean and can't wait to use this stamp on lots of other cards as backgrounds!  It's perfect to add dimension to any card.  I couldn't resist adding some Sea Gulls from the High Tide stamp set.

Are you as excited about the new catalogue as I am?  If you have order from me in the last year, you should have received your new catalogue in the mail (or you will receive it by May 31st).  If you haven't received it by then, please email me and I'll get one out to you!  If you haven't placed an order and want a catalogue, you can pick one up at my Catalogue Launch party on June 9th in Ladysmith, BC or email me and I'll send you one.

Interested in placing an order for some of the retiring products?  You can go to my ONLINE store and use the Host Code TZSV9JNB to place your order.  Use this host code when ordering and receive a free gift from me! I'll send you a set of 4 cards as a Thank You gift so you can make at home. 

If your order is over $200, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.

Annual Catalogue Launch Party and Open House

I'm holding my launch party for the new catalogue on June 9th from 1-4pm at my studio in Ladysmith, BC.  You can check out the amazing new products from the Annual Catalogue and pick up your personal copy.

Drop in between 1pm and 4pm to see some samples, do a make ‘n take, and get your own copy of both of the publications.  
Please RSVP by Wed. June 6th so I know how many make ‘n take packets to make up. If you can’t make it, please let me know and we will make arrangements to get the publications to you right away.

Vintage Leaves

Today I wanted to share some cards that feature the Vintage Leaves Stampset and the Coordinating Leaflets Framelits.  I'm always drawn to leaves and to the fall colours that seem to go perfectly with this stampset.  Both of these products are retiring from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue as of May 31st so if you want to get the stamp set and framelits, don't wait. 

First, here's a card that I made where I randomly stamped leaves in Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Pear Pizazz on Whisper White.  I then adhered Garden Green card stock leaving about a 2" gap to display the leaves.

The next card is one I received on my 5th Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Dale Hampshire of Stampin' Up! Canada.  It was such as wonderful surprise to get a beautiful card in the mail especially a card made with one of my favourite stamp sets.

This card has leaves randomly stamped on the front in a variety of colours as well as a leaf cut out using the framelits.
