Delightfully Detailed Suite

I think the Delightfully Detailed Specialty Designer Series Paper  is very special and you will too!  It can turn ordinary projects into beautiful, elegant works of art with little effort.  Have you seen the papers on page 189 of the catalog?  But beyond just the paper is the Delightfully Detailed Suite on page 38 & 39 in the catalog.  You have so many products included in the suite to create dozens of cards, tags or scrapbook pages.  Watch as Natalie gives you a tour of the suite.

You can pick up any of the products in the suite in my online store.

Today I wanted to share with you the no line watercoloring technique.  I can't wait to try it but I don't have the stamp set, Better With You, yet.  You can find it on page 169 in the catalog. Take a look: 

I hope you enjoyed it and will give it a try.  I would love to see any samples that you create using this technique.  Enjoy!

Monday morning ~ are you ready?  Today I want to share with you information about the Lined Alphabet Bundle.  This Bundle creates a unique approach to our creations and the video is so helpful to answer all of our 'how to' questions!  You can create a variety of colorful rainbows, or a great ombre look.  Lastly, how about a monochromatic look?  Take a look and see how it works:

Don't Forget About the Clearance Rack

I know having the new catalog this past month has been distracting.  But I don't want you to forget that you can also shop the Clearance Rack for some great deals.  You can find so many products that you never knew were in there.  It's always a surprise when I click into the Clearance Rack.

Here are a couple of my current favorites that are in there: 

The Blossom Bunch Punch is a great tool to create a bunch of blossoms with just one punch. The fun part is that is actually has three different flower images you can punch at one time.  Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest and depth to your projects. 


The Cheerful Tags Framelits are so great when creating die-cut tags and accents in seconds.  Remember, when you are making your tags for the holidays, you want to make them quickly because you making them in bulk.  You can make different shapes, sizes, and designs. Mix and match the eight dies to create a variety of tags.  There is also some Christmas DSP to go along with these tags if you are looking for holiday products.


The Gift Box Punch Board is a great tool for creating little boxes for your goodies and treats.  You can use it for so much more.
 When cute wrapping paper just isn't enough, why not make your own box? The punch board creates boxes in a variety of sizes, up to 4" on each side.

So now you know some of my favorites, what are some of yours?  Stampin' Up! keeps adding products through the year, so you never know what will pop up next.
