Sneak Peak Time!

It's getting so close...the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog that is! Time for me to start showing a few of the new things you'll get to love on September 1st! Here's a picture of the new Mini Lunch Sacks. The top edge is scalloped and they come 10 to a package. I stamped on the bag with the pine bough from the Autumn Days set. (are you humming Christmas music yet??) The tag is made using new products too! First I stamped the image from the new Tags til Christmas set and used the Extra-Large Decorative Label Punch to get it ready to tie on with some Linen Thread. Don't let the punch size description scare you...it's so easy to use in the new style. I finished by punching a couple of holes in the top of the bag with my Crop a Dile and lacing Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta ribbon through them.                                                                   

These sacks are too cute and they'll hold just the right little gift!

I'm Here for You

Hey Everybody, Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I got some great stampin' time in! This is a little sneak from the upcoming Mini Catalog that you'll be able to see September 1st. It's loaded with great new things, some not paper...mmm...what could that be?? The background paper was made by stamping off once to lighten my images with Garden Green, Cajun Craze and More Mustard inks. The leaves are all in a beautiful new set in the upcoming Mini called French Foliage. Mr. Owl is so simple using the Two Step Owl Punch and the sentiment is from the Hostess set Apple Blossoms. I tied it all together to give Mr. Owl a perch with one of my favorite things-some Crochet Trim. The base of my card is Cajun Craze...so fall looking! Can you tell I'm ready for cooler weather? :D
Thanks for stopping by!

Occasional Quotes & Punch Potpourri

Hi Everybody! I really just wanted to stamp and punch out this sweet birdie using the Level 1 Hostess set Punch Potpourri & this is what happened! I just love that set-makes it so easy. So easy that I stamped and punched the heart too! The sentiment was stamped using one of the 12 stamps offered in the Occasional Quotes set. This is a Level 3 set (that you could earn)!! What a bargain...so much to choose from. The designer paper is Elegant Soiree. I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Baha Breeze also. Did you notice the bow? That's our new yummy vintage looking Crochet Trim topped off with a vintage Antique Brad. A little punch with the Scallop Edge punch and a little strip of Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon and this was a done deal!
I'm rather pleased with me since I didn't CASE (which stands for Copy And Share Everything) this ... that's usually what I do (haha). That's all for now...I think I'm feeling a little Holiday coming on...:)

Hi Everybody,
I want to show you some of the sites I got to enjoy at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. We were able to visit the facility where Demonstrator Support is housed as well as where those wonderful SU! boxes are packed with our orders!


Headquarters...how bout those mountains!



Looking down at the dining area!

Where the rubber (stamps&such) meets the road (UPS)!
I'll share more interesting stuff later but I'm off to create something for you! Have a wonderful afternoon!
