IT'S ALMOST HERE! STAMPIN' UP!® OCCASIONS CATALOG and SALE-A-BRATION

     20190103_OCC19_en-US         20190103_SAB19-1_en-US


HI, STAMPERS!
     They're almost live - the 2019 Stampin' Up!® Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  Have you looked through your catalogs, yet?  How many times?  ;-)  Did you receive yours in the mail?  If you are one of my customers and you did not, let me know and I will get it them to you.
    I had planned to share some video tutorials with you for some of the new products, but I am unable to get the links to work.  I'm sure some of you have seen the tutorials linked on Patty Bennett's blog, so maybe those demos who attended this year's On Stage were given early access.  Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to share them until January 3, although I am able to watch them.  In fact, all of the product videos from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration will be available to you on January 3 at youtube.com/stampinup.


Happy Stampin’!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT - 2018 STAMPIN' UP!© HOLIDAY CATALOG


Happy New Year, Stampers!
     Just a reminder that there are still lots of items drastically reduced in the Year-End Closeout, Retiring Favorites, Discounted and Clearance Rack.  Take another look through your Holiday Catalog and just click the image above to get to my DBWS. For example, we all loved the many ideas online for the Country Home stamp set(p.43) and cards we created at stamp camp.  I don't see it listed below, so, I would guess that as of January 3, it is gone.
     The First Frost stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits are listed separately with the carryovers below. This means they will not be offered in carryover as a 10% off bundle.  So, if you want the bundle at 10% off, you need to order it now.  Want this stunning Frosted Floral Specialty DSP that coordinates with the First Frost and Bundle?  It is for sale in the Year-End Closeout, so, you'd best order it now, too!  I think you get the picture. 
Frosted Floral 12 x 12 (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper


     Here are some of our favorites that will be carried over - yea!  You may notice that the Winter Woods stamp set does not mention a bundle, either - if you want the bundle, you need to order it now .  Also, the First Frost stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits are listed separately, below.  This means they will not be offered in carryover as a 10% off bundle.  So, if you want the bundle at 10% off, you need to order it now (p.27).  


Happy Stampin’ in 2019!

Measurements
PAPER – Whisper White Thick CS – 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, score at 4-1/4; Highland Heather –
5-1/4 x 4; Shimmery White – 5 x 3-3/4


INKS – Highland Heather, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Mint Macaron; Highland Heather Marker

OTHER – Stamping Sponges, Wink of Stella, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes (if you have them), Spritzer containing alcohol and a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint

Instructions
  • Lightly sponge Night of Navy near bottom of top layer, then blend in Pool Party in the middle, and Lemon Lime Twist near the top
  • Stamp stem/leaves in Old Olive, and two-step flower in Highland Heather, using Marker to ink the flower stem, if you are afraid of over-inking your stamp
  • Stamp water ripples and water bug/fly in Mint Macaron; fill wings in with Mint Macaron stamped off and add Wink of Stella
  • Lightly spritz card front with alcohol/Shimmer Paint mist, add Epoxy Shapes or other clear or glitter embellishments and adhere layers.
That's it!  Unfortunately, the overall frosty sparkle is not visible in the photo, but it is gorgeous IRL.

WHO DOESN'T LOVE BUTTERFLIES?  and
LOOK AT THOSE COLORS!
Hello, Stampers!
     Aren't the colors in this photo appealing?  They make me think of Spring (I'm ready already) and Easter.  Some of the creations shown above were created with FREE DSP (with $50 net order) - Botanical Butterflies - black & white on one side and those gorgeous colors on the other.  There's a bundle in the Occasions Catalog with a coordinating stamp set (Butterfly Gala) and, ready for it . . . a Butterfly Duet PUNCH!!  And, guess what?  The punch coordinates with some of the butterfly images on the DSP!  Woo hoo!
     The Occasions Catalog products and Sale-A-Bration Brochure freebies will be here before you know it!  January 3rd.  If you are customers of mine, you will get your catalog and brochure by mail or with your order, if you ordered at December Stamp Camp!  Not sure if you will get yours in the mail?  Better check with me.
