2017 Occasions Sneak Peak – Dragonfly Dreams


There is a new stamp set in the 2017 Occasions catalog that is sure to fly off the shelves; Dragonfly dreams. The Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies coordinate with the stamp set. I used one of the thinlits in Mint Macron for my card.

The bottom of the card was created using a stamp within the set. Then I spritzed it with water for a softer effect. A bit of watercoloring with So Saffron and Pool Party create a soft background.


The inside sentiment is from the new Balloon Adventures stamp set. The dragonfly under the sentiment was stamped in So Saffron after stamping off on another sheet of paper to create a softer image.


Do you agree that this stamp set will be a stampers favorite?

Sneak Peak 2017 Occasions Catalog – Balloon Adventure


Birthday cards are the most common cards that I create. Therefore I LOVE when Stampin’ Up! comes out with new birthday stamp sets. The 2017 Occasions catalog has some wonderful birthday stamp sets. The Balloon Adventures set has great sentiments as well as balloons and confetti.


The balloons coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet punch too.


The Designer Series Paper is called Party Animal and has fun patterns from small prints to larger prints.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this gets you excited for the new catty.



Sneak Peek from the 2017 Occasions Catalog!

This past weekend I went to Atlanta for the launch of the new Occasions catalog to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. It was a fun weekend and Stampin’ Up! did not disappoint us with this new catalog. Check out these Make and Take cards from the event.

This card trio uses the new Sending Love Suite. The Sealed with Love stamp set has coordinating framelits!



Then there is the Party Animal Suite which features this fabulous Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Die.


And the Sale-A-Bration catalog includes this fun Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper for more adult coloring and relaxation with our new Watercoloring Pencils!!!! We were able to use the pencils at the event and I can’t wait to order them. I did not get a chance to finish coloring my DSP but I wanted you to see it anyway.

I hope I got you excited about the new catalog. Thanks for stopping by!


Stitched and Stylized Birthday


The Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper is simply gorgeous. Every time I use it I fall in love with it all over again.

Today I am also using our new Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies to frame the Stylized Birthday greeting. A few Metallic Enamel Shapes and this card is ready to send off!


And the inside uses sentiments from Cottage greetings stamp set. Another favorite set in my collection.
