So are you ready for a little peak at what's to come?
I recently attended Stampin' UP!'s On Stage event, a mini-convention where demonstrators from all over the west coast gathered to catch a glimpse of new products to be released in January. We got to see samples, play with new items and (best of all!) got a copy of Occasions, the new catalog to be released on January 4! Does it get any better than that? Yes! I also got to pre-order a sample of some of the new products so I can play with them and show you what's coming! Yippee!
So here's my first creation:
Balloon Adventures will be a hit for those of us who send birthday cards--and who of us doesn't?
This great set coordinates with the previously released Balloon Bouquet Punch, but also has a set of Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies! Whoo hoo!
Now at On Stage, I got to experiment with some of the products from the Party Animal Suite--here is what we made:
The Party Animal Designer Series Paper is loads of fun in bright colors. But look at this:
But wait! There's more; look at what happens when you open this card:
So when I was creating my card at home, I cut the same balloon pop up piece, but chose to eliminate the sides, and use it as a focal piece on the front of my card:
I can't wait to play some more--this is a really great set; the suite features the stamps, thinlits, designer series paper and embellishments, as well as washi tape and new Emerald Envy ribbon!
Coming January 4th!
I'll have Occasions catalogs for my customers in December. Not my customer? See your Stampin' UP! demonstrator for your copy. Don't have a demo? I'd love to be yours - contact me and I'll make sure you get one. You NEED to see what's coming soon!
