Hi Friends! One of the best things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is being able to pre-order stamp sets and accessories prior to their release. This gives us time to play with them and plan our classes and workshops before the catalogues go live. Well, I have to tell you, I am soooo excited about the new 2016 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues! Stampin' Up! really outdid themselves this year and I can honestly say I am in love with EVERYTHING! So brace yerselves! You may want to start asking Santa for $$$ instead of gifts so that you get what you want once these catalogues become available January 5th. Contact me to get your catalogue and if you'd like to earn some of the new products for FREE book your workshop or private stamping class with your friends with me now. Everyone who schedules a party with me between now and January 4th will receive a technique tutorial as my thank you gift! Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am smitten with the new "Botanicals for You" stamp set, which is a Sale-a-bration set. What that means is you can't buy this stamp set - but you CAN get it for FREE! Every $60 spent during SAB entitles you to free product of your choice out of the SAB catalogue. How awesome is that? I'll post more details about SAB next week! Here's the card I made with Botanicals for You:
I wanted to use this set for a Christmas card and used Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Old Olive ink. I also used Timeless Textures, another new stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. I already know I'm going to use this set on 90% of my cards. If you love "Gorgeous Grunge" as much as I do then "Timeless Textures" is a set you must get!
I also stamped an envelope for another card I made, using Botanicals for You, with my markers:
That's it for me. I've got a full day today and I'm already running behind (and it's only 7:30am)! LOL Thought I'd leave you with a photo of my Christmas lights in my living room - it's my favourite room in my house....
...so cozy and such a nice spot for my morning coffee (or evening vino!).
Have a fabulous weekend and HAPPY STAMPING!
