Hartford CT – Mini Catalogue Release Previews

Hartford CT 2019

The introduction of the Mini Catalogue (new name) was introduced to those demonstrators attending conventions around the world. I was able to attend the Hartford CT event and it was fabulous!
Here are photos of some of the items available in the new catty (which will be available to customers in late Dec.) The catalogue ordering dates are Jan-June. Having a preview allows the customer to prepare a WISH LIST/ ORDER LIST ahead of time. If you have placed an order with this past year and do not have another demonstrator, you will receive the new catty mid December. If you do not have a demonstrator and place a $50 order with me prior to Dec 2, you will receive a mini catalogue mid Dec. Enjoy these previews and begin making your list!

Hope this gives you some preview of the excitement that is building around this catalogue ๐Ÿ™‚ Feel free to post questions regarding the products available. As always, during this particular sales time, there are promotions for free products when ordering certain dollar amounts. Below are two pictures of some of those.

Enjoy the previews!

New Items Available

All I can say is – wow! to the new paper trimmer SU! is offering customers. As a demonstrator, SU! offers early release of products. This new paper trimmer is a WINNER! The blade is longer and can cut tiny strips without any problem at all. That was a struggle with the previous trimmer, but not this one. And the extendable arm opens to a whopping 17″ length for cutting extra long papers. It’s light-weight but very sturdy. I’m really excited about it and it’s available to customers today – Nov. 1. I encourage you to not delay in placing your order.

The item # is…152392 and the cost is a reasonable $25. Trimmer blades come in a four-pack and will be available Jan 2020. That says to me, if you order the trimmer now, that blade will LAST A LONG TIME before it needs replacing. I’ve used my trimmer now a full month and the blade is still excellent.

Remember to use my HOST CODE if your order is less than $150. Nov 1-20 that code is…

24HR STAMPSALE US

Daisy Lane, …..Perennial Essence DSP

The card: the base is thick Whisper White: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; next layer is also thick Whisper White cut at 4 x 5 1/4. The two diagonal pieces are Perennial Essence DSP cut at 7/8″, layered on a strip of Gorgeous Grape. The string is not a SU! Product (shame on me!) but coordinates so well I just had to use it. The strings were adhered on the back with snail then taped over it once they were as I wanted them. On my desk and having laid around for a while :o) were these two stunning daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set, stamped in Highland Heather and punched with their coordinating punches. The embellishment (faceted gems ย for the daisy was colored with Melon Mango stampin blends.

The butterflies come from the Beauty Abounds stamp set. They were stamped in Memento black and colored with SU! Blends: Dark Purple ePosy, Light Rich Razzleberry and Dark Mango Melody. This whole front was adhered to the thick Whisper White card base with lots of dimensionals.

The envelope uses more of the Perennial Essence card stock for the flap and more stamps from Beauty Abounds. The “blobs” are supposed to be nectar from the flowers that the butterfly is going after :o) and was stamped with So Saffron. The butterfly was again colored in using Mango Melody.

Thanks for stopping by. May you enjoy the day wherever you are. Create. Inspire. Share.

Aug blog hop – Fall Frenzy

This month Amy’s Inkin’ Krew is doing a blog hop titled Fall Frenzy – so a fall card was created by each team member. If you have come from the blog of the amazing Jaimie, she has done a beautiful job.

This card was definitely a work in progress and while I’m not convinced it’s my best, it was still fun to do. Sponge daubers were used to create the sun and sky: Crushed Curry, Blueberry Bushel, Pumpkin Pie, even a little Flirty Flamingo. The sky is so FULL of color in real life and the idea was the beginning of a sunset.

The tree is from the wonderful Rooted In Nature stamp set and matching dies. I applied inks directly to the stamp, again using daubers: Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze along the edges of the leaves; Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz were also used for the leaves. Trees are NEVER just one color. :o) Early Espresso was used on the trunk and highlighting the branches in the tree. (I love how the branches really do show through.) After stamping the tree, it was cut out using the matching die. The branch was cut using the Seasonal Layers dies that go with Colorful Seasons stamp set. The leaf was die cut on a piece of Perennial Essence DSP, then a coordinating die cut in copper foil was adhered to that. I curled the leaves, cuz leaves are never flat.

Before placing the tree, I tore another piece of the Perennial Essence paper to create a scene of grassy hillside. The tree was placed on dimensionals, then the branch had dimensionals just on the largest part and Tombow glue was used to adhere the branch to the tree. This creates even more dimension, the larger tree in the distance, the branch in the forefront. Then I placed the leaf.

As this card was created for a gentleman friend who has had some health challenges lately, the sentiment from Rooted In Nature was used and stamped in Blueberry Bushel. The sentiment probably should have been placed above the grassy hillside, but once it was on, well, it was on.

The inside also has a stamped leaf, again using the Perennial Essence papers and the Colorful Season stamp set. Because I want to write a special note, no sentiment was used. It’s very simple. You can also see part of the envelope and the leaf adhered. That leaf is from the Nature Roots dies that coordinate with Rooted in Nature stamp set.

If you want to see the previous blog, please use the appropriate “sign”, otherwise move on to the next blog to see what else has been created by this amazing team. Thanks for stopping by. May you create a beautiful day for someone!

Holiday Catalogue Preview of Goodies

Interestingly, all the pictures I have taken of my new goodies will not upload…. No, I don’t know why. Guess I have to play some – oh throw me in that briar patch! We have company coming tomorrow so we’ll see what I can do… not much time – probably won’t be able to do much, but something is better than nothing, right? For. Instance, there is a tree punch and plaid paper that is to die for… Maybe I could just punch something out now and show that. Hmmm. Give me a minute….

Well, that didn’t work in uploading the pictures.. ugh! Don’t know what to do at this point – maybe I’ll go make a card :o) I punched 6 of the cutest little trees out of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. Remember it’s 6 x 6 size paper and double-sided – twice the fun! The tree is only 2″ tall :o)

Leaving you now – I apologize for getting you all excited. Please come back and visit soon.

Thank You Card for a Man

Today’s card was made with someone special in mind. A gentleman on staff at our church has taken another position elsewhere and is moving. While we have not had a lot of interaction, it’s still an appropriate time to say thank you for serving our congregation. I’ve used a retired embossing folder but there are some others that would work very well with this design setup. Here’s the card:

I used Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. The next layer is 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ and dry embossed. The tile tief might be a nice embossing folder to use – definitely creating a different texture. I used a 1″ strip of Old Olive and cut it on the diagonal, matching the sideways embossed pattern, adhering it just a bit lower than halfway. On top of that is a strip of textured burlap ribbon, adhered with tear ‘n tape. Another piece of Old Olive cut with the scalloped oval die has been put on dimensionals. Abstract Impressions stamp set was used for the Thank You sentiment, using Blackberry Bliss ink. Dandelion Wishes stamp set was used to create the floating away flowers using Smokey Slate ink.

Here’s the inside:

Again using Smokey Slate ink, I stamped the the dandelion then positioned the sentiment where I wanted it. That is stamped in Old Olive ink.

This is a rather elegant looking card and seems perfect for a man. Hope you like it!
