Sneak Peek: Occasions Mini Catalog

Maybe it's a little too early for Valentines Day.  But I did get a little time to play this weekend with my new stamps, paper and Big Shot items and I wanted to share.  I'm so excited about all of it, but especially the new Big Shot Framelit Dies that we will be selling starting January 4. These wafer-thin dies make it easy to cut out pre-stamped images, just like punches.  And each set come with six different dies that layer on top of each other.  A papercrafter's dream come true!!!  Here's the first card I made with these this weekend:

Colors: Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White.  Stamps: Take It to Heart and Loving Thoughts.  Big Shot: Hearts Collection Framelits.  Tools: Heat Gun.  Accessories: VersaMark Stamp Pad, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Vintage Brads, Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
Take It to Heart and Loving Thoughts are both new stamp sets in the Mini Catalog too.  Take It to Heart coordinates perfectly with the Heart Framelits.  And I know I will be using Loving Thoughts A LOT.  It has 11 sentiments that are just perfect for almost any occasion. This started out as a card for a swap, but then I got the idea to put the ribbon ruffle around the larger heart and well, that's a lot of ribbon for an eight person swap.  It does give the card a little something special though. But now I still have a swap to design with this stamp set.

One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is getting product free for meeting various goals.  I received Take It to Heart free for participating in Stampin' Up's! Worldwide Week of Workshops. I also received the Antique Brads for free for booking workshops during a book-a-thon.  And those weren't the only free things that came in this order.  I love this company!  If you'd like more information on joining Stampin' Up! please contact me, or visit my Demonstrator Website: paula.stampinup.net.
