Smitten Mittens Bundle

My friend, Beth Thompson, ordered this stamp set at our stamp club on Wednesday evening this week.  Well, actually, she couldn't come to our meeting because she was sick so she sent me her order the next day.  I hadn't paid much attention to this set on page 38 in Holiday Catalog until she ordered it so I went to You Tube to see if Stampin' Up! staff had provided lots of information through a video and they did!  There is more to this Bundle than meets the eye ~ take a look!


Beth will be at another stamp club next week ~ it's like a make up class.  All my stamp clubs do the same projects during the month so making up if you have to miss is not a problem.  If you would like more information about stamp clubs let me know ~ I think you would enjoy a girls night out for some crafting fun!  Feel better Beth!!!

Oh So Eclectic Bundle Video

Here is another video showcasing some new products in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Shannon creates some great projects using this bundle.  You will love what you can do with these products and how all the different styles work together to create so much!

The colors are amazing and I just love all that you can do.

If you have not received your own new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, let me know.  The Holiday catalog will be mailed out in August and the products will be available September 1 (how do you like that cat punch in yesterdays post?).  Let me know if you have any questions about the products in the So Eclectic Bundle or if I can order it for you.

Thanks, Susan Elise

Designer Series Paper Stacks

There are four new paper stacks in the 2017- 2018 Catalog ~ Petal Garden, Color Theory, Wood Textures and Fresh Florals.   They are all 6' x 6' stacks except the Fresh Florals which is 12" x 12".  And they are all $10 (for 48 sheets of paper) except the Fresh Florals which is $22 for 40 sheets of 12" x 12" paper.  You can see the pictures of the paper stacks on page 187 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog or view this video that Stampin' Up! produced for all of us.  I know none of us need more paper (right?) so I think that a good way to have some variety with these new papers is a SHARE.  If you are in a STAMP CLUB the stacks can be divided pretty easily or I can have a SIGN UP SHEET for an inexpensive SHARE, let me know what you think!  EMAIL ME NOW!

The two cards above are swap cards, both using images from the Color Theory Suite.  I know you are going to love this bundle.  The color coordination (ribbon, paper & Glitter Dots) is wonderful!  The Colorful Season stamp set and coordinating Framelits are bundled on page 147 in your Stampin' Up! catalog  See for yourself.

Marie's card & Embossing Paste Video

Marie's pig card

This is Marie Shaughnessy's card from our meeting on Saturday afternoon.  Isn't it darling?  She used a new product in the Stampin' Up! catalog, Embossing Paste, to create the texture in the clouds.  She also demonstrated the product showing all of us how to use it.  You can find the Paste on page 201 along with a set of Masks and a set of Palette Knives that you use with the paste.  Thanks Marie ~ super demonstration!

 Take a look at the 'how to' video Stampin' Up! created.  

If you want to take a look at the new annual catalog, click the catalog link here.  You can also  contact me to get one of your own. 

Thanks, Susan Elise

June 27 ~ treat yourself...........

My SOFT SAYINGS CARD KIT CLASS is going to be so much fun!  I LOVE the kit and the 20 cards I made one morning this past week.  You can see the kit in the video below or on page 10 and 11 in Stampin' Up!'s new catalog.  Sign up for my class now so that I have time to order your kit for you.  The class is scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, at 6:30 in the Cat/Art Studio.  Because the kit contains EVERYTHING that you need to make 20 cards we will be making an additional four cards together in the class ~ you'll want to use the stamp set over and over ~ let me show you how!  The kit is also refillable making it a good investment (and so much less expensive than even the dollar store!) ~ join me for some fun!


New Designer Series Paper

We'll be using the new IN COLOR DESIGNER SERIES PAPER this weekend at my NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE.  I thought you might want to see the Stampin' Up! Video with ALL THE NEW Papers.  The one we will be using, FRESH FLORALS, is at the end of the video.  Hope to see you in the Cat/Art Studio!


At Home with You

On page 54 in the 2017-18 catalog (coming soon to your mail box) you will find the AT HOME WITH YOU BUNDLE and you are going to love it!  Here's Brandi to tell you about it ~


And, did you see the Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments?  What fun!  I will have to invest in this bundle, and the embellishments, when we start our monthly Christmas Card Club in July!  Oh! and I wanted to mention ~ please let me know when your new catalog arrives or, if it doesn't, I will have a catalog in the Cat/Art Studio for you.  Thanks!  Susan Elise
