Going-Going-Gone SU! Holiday Catalog

Happy New Year

Hope it is Happy and Healthy

Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog will soon be a thing of the past.  Have you gotten all the cool items you want out of this catalog?  If not, you better hurry as they will soon be gone.

If you have received your Occasions Catalog you will see on page 49 there is a list of returning favorites but if you are like me many of my favorite will be gone on Jan. 5.  Don't be disappointed order them now before it is too late.

Going to share a couple of my favorites from this catalog to help remind you of these beautiful sets.





Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper

Irresistibly Yours DSP_Butterfly Basics_Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video Features the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper and the Stamp Set Simply Wonderful both of these products you can get free during Sale-a-Bration starting Jan. 6th.  It also features my favorite bundle in the Occasions Catalog Butterfly Basics.

Don't live close to me?  No Problem!  You can take part in my Stamp of the Month for Jan.   I will be featuring the Butterfly Basic Bundle as one of my kits.  Full details will be released around Jan. 7th, so check back.

Another Sample From the Occasions Catalog

Hello Life_Occasions Catalog_Linda Bauwin

Another great sample today from the soon-to-be-released SU! Occasions Catalog.  This sample comes from our stamp group challenge and was created by Leigh Amburgey from Mentor, OH.

Leigh used the Hello Life Stamp Set that is found on page 6 of the Occasions Catalog.  This set coordinated with the Hello Life Project Kit.  I think this set can easily be overlooked because it is shown at 50%.  This is some thing we are not use to in our catalogs.  

The card below is another card Leigh submitted for our challenge.  She used the same set and you can really see with this card the size of these beautiful stamps.   

Hello Life_SU! Occasions Ctalog_Linda Bauwin

Leigh also used the beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper on this card found on page 19 of the Occasions Catalog.  This paper has so many vibrant colors in it.  It is a must have.

Don't forget I am taking preorders for my product shares for the Occasions Catalog.  Check out all the details here and reserve your shares.

Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalog Sneak Peeks

Butterfly Basics_Occasions Catalog_Linda Bauwin

Okay I have to admit this is my favorite time of the year.  My workshops and classes are on hold until after the first of the year, so you would think I would be at rest.  Not!  

I am in my stamp room creating away with all the soon-to-be-release Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalog items.  Getting all new product before everyone else is a wonderful perk of being a demonstrator.  And let me tell you they are all beautiful.  But this Butterfly Basic Bundle I can not leave alone.

This beautiful card was created by a new member of our Stamp Family, Heather Johnson.  Heather joined our Stamp Family after our October Stamp Retreat.  Her presents just brings so much fun and excitement to everyone.

You know it's not to early to start making plans to join us at our next Stamp Retreat in March.  You can check out all the details on my calendar. This retreat is open to everyone, so I have a feeling it will fill fast, so start making your plans to join us.

Soon-to-Be Released Butterfly Basics

Butterfly Basics_SU! Occasions Catalog_Linda Bauwin

Today's share comes from the Soon-to-Be released Stampin' Up! Occasion's Catalog and was created by Karen Burke of Rochester, New York.  She shared this week during a Creative Challenge with our stamping group.

Karen used the Butterfly Basic Bundle that is going to be the fastest seller out of this new catalog in my eyes.  There is so much to do with the bundle.  It has a stamp set with 11 stamps and 3 butterfly thinlit dies.

Watch as I will be releasing my Stamp of the Month Kit  featuring this beautiful bundle after the catalog goes live.  So if your eyes are on this bundle, purchasing it with my Stamp of the Month Kit is the best way, as you get an exclusive tutorial to make several cards.

To create this card Karen first did her stamping on the front.  Then she die cut butterfly out of the front of the card and layering it with the Hello Honey Designer Paper on the inside.  She then die cut another butterfly in gold foil and adhered to the top..


Lotus Blossom Color Combination - Sale-a-Bration

Lotus Blossom_Sale-a-Bration_Linda Bauwin

Today's What's Up With SU! Video showcases the Exclusive Lotus Blossom Stamp Set from SU! Sale-a-Bration Promotion that starts on Jan. 6th.  It also uses the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper that I showed you in yesterday's video.

Today I showcase Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, and Wisteria Wonder as my three colors for this beautiful flower set.  But I also have other colors to show you at the end.

The flower in this stamp set changes so much with the different color combinations.  All the cards are made in a snap with SU! Note Cards. These come already cut & scored along with envelopes.  You get 20 note cards and envelopes for only $5.95.

The note cards measure 3 1/2" x 5", and then I used a background card stock cut down to 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" and my Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper to 3" x 4 1/2".

Creative Fold Sympathy

Creative fold_Sympathy_Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features the Love & Sympathy Stamp Set and the Party Pennants Bigz L Die for the Big Shot.

The Bigz L Dies and framelits used with the Big Shot are great tools to use when you want to create a creative fold card.  You simple need to fold your card stock and make sure you place the fold just below the cutting knife on the Bigz L or framelit.  By doing this, your card takes on a completely different look.

I have to admit that I have had the Love & Sympathy stamp set for some time but have never used.  It is a beautiful set but I think some times it is just hard to make sympathy cards.  I find myself, it is easier to do them before I need them.  


Sneak Peak From the Heard Stamp Set

Okay I think this stamp set is the funniest thing I have seen in awhile. These animals are just the cutest.  Mary Ann Rossiter created this card for our share.

As you can see, Mary Ann used the words "from the heard" on her card but there are some other cute sentiments like : "it's pasture birthday...", "party animals", and "just looking in on you..." to name a few.

You will be able to get this set when it goes live on Jan. 6.  It is a set of 13 stamps and comes in all three styles wood-mount, which come with wood blocks, clear-mount, or our new photopolymer which offers precision alignment and mount on our acrylic blocks like the clear-mount.  Neither the clear-mount nor the photopolymer come with the acrylic blocks.

So nice to now have all three styles of stamp set an option with some sets in the Occasions Catalog.  Speaking of the Occasions Catalog I got mine in the mail, so if you are on my current mailing list you should be receiving yours soon.
