Stampin' Up! Beauty of the Earth

Beauty of the Earth...another beautiful suite of products from Stampin' Up!'s artists!  This versatil designer series paper and stamp set can be used all year round.  As a matter of fact, I am going to plan a class showing just that - cards for every season.

This small piece of designer series paper is perfect on the our Note Cards.  This is one of my favorite sentiments in the catalog, "Friendships refresh the soul".

Stampin' Up! Hand Penned

I love our team of artists at Stampin' Up!  Their creativity continues to amaze me!  The Hand Penned Suite is so pretty,  I am sure this photograph doesn't do it justice.   We made this card at our Team Meeting earlier this week.  

I truly can't wait until this new catalog goes live on May 4 so you all can get this fabulous product.

Stampin' Up! Introducing the n

One of my favorite times as a demonstrator is getting the new catalogs.  One of the first things I do is look at the incoming In Colors!  Here they are, from top to bottom:
  • Pale Papaya
  • Fresh Freesia
  • Polished Pink
  • Soft Succulent
  • Evening Evergreen
It's a little hard to see but there are also In Color gems which are gorgeous!  One of the greatest perks of being a demonstrator is being among the first to see the new catalog and order products early.  I would be remiss if I didn't invite you all to join my team and be a part of the excitement!

Stampin' Up! Pattern Party

Today my husband and I celebrate 47 years of marriage.  We have four wonderful kids, eight beautiful grandkids, we have had nine homes, multiple jobs, good times and bad times.  We were going to celebrate by going to a Detroit Tiger's baseball game and eat at the Tiger Club on Wednesday.  However, the Tiger Club hasn't opened yet this season due to Covid and it is going to be cold...I mean snow in the forecast cold.  So we decided to just do what we did last year....nothing.  Just hang out and just be together. And we are OK with that.  We will leaving for Hawaii in a few weeks so it's all good!

The designer series paper I punched the hearts out with is called Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It will be exclusively available to hostesses.  There are 48 (4 each of 12 double sided) 12 x 12 sheets.  I love them all!  The greeting is from a new stamp set called Elegantly Said.  The scalloped edge was made with the new Penned Flowers Die.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow

I needed to make two sympathy cards for extended family members...both losses occurring on the same day.  I had some of my new things from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog out already so decided to use them.  Once again I was inspired by a project in the new catalog.  This one is Quiet Meadow and is a bundle.  The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments, which is a returning favorite.

Stampin' Up! In Bloom

I love this card layout.  I was going through the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for the umpteenth time and this card on page 30 jumped out at me.  In Bloom, from the January - June Mini Catalog is carrying over.  Confession time: I was not going to get this bundle.  Let me say it again.  I was not going to get this bundle.  I have seen so many great cards with this set that when I saw that it was carrying over, I ordered it.  So there.
