I just finished packing up a bunch of new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogs for mailing to my customers. Yay for me getting them done a couple of weeks before they "go live"! I've included several helpful inserts with each catalog, of course. But I also couldn't resist making a note card to go with each one!
I got quite a way into my envelope stuffing before I realized that I'd not taken a photo of the little 3" x 3" cards – but I think this grouping makes a nice picture, don't you? What's especially nice about these cards is that I used 3 brand new products in putting them together: There's the super-lovely Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, the Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon, and a bit of the new Tranquil Tide Ink that I used to stamp the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.
The Delightful Daisy paper set has some gorgeous designs, but this side of this sheet is almost my favorite. I promise to get out my absolute favorite sheet to show off before too long. The Double-Stitched Ribbon will come in 3 colors: Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler, besides the Daffodil Delight. As you can see from the photo, the stitching on one side is a cross-stitched 'X' and the other side has a double running stitch. This is what two different sides of my cross-stitching looks like when I make a row of 'X's, and it makes both sides fun to work with. It's also fun to tie a bow. Now, I could have sworn I tied every bow the same way as I was doing it off the spool. But, as you can see, the bows turned out differently. It doesn't matter, though, because the patterns are so much fun.
Besides the new products, I turned to my favorite sentiment stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, for the sentiment and the Modern Label Punch to punch it out of the Whisper White Cardstock on which it was stamped.
So – I've used up my supply of catalogs for the moment. But I would be happy to order some more and get one out to you if you're not one of my current customers. All you have to do is to change that non-customer status and place an order of $50 or more before the end of June, and I'll send a catalog off to you FREE! This means you can order now from the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog (click on the "Current Stampin' Up! Catalogs" picture over on the right) or from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog when it is published June 1st. I'll have a link to an online copy of the catalog in the same spot on the right when it's published!
For those of you who are already my customers, you should get your catalog in your mail box next week. If you don't, be sure to let me know!
