Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

Luck O' The Irish!

Dia dhuit!  (That is hello in Irish!)

Even though I am Swedish and French I like to embrace the Irish holiday.  As they say, everyone is Irish for one day in March!

Let's cover the latest news first!  As you probably know, when we have Sale-A-Bration, there are TWO releases.  The second release is available March 3rd!  To see the 2nd Release Sale-a-Bration brochure Click Here

Both releases are good through March 31st.  Purchase $50.00 and you qualify for one of the free items marked with the "Free with $50 purchase" logos.  If you purchase $100.00, there is the logo for $100.  Purchases can be made from the Annual Catalog and the Mini Occasions Catalog.  If you need either of these catalogs and the Sale-A-Bration booklet let me know (note: my order for the 2nd release has not come in yet, so please use the link above).

Our February Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering was so much fun!  We did a card camp on a smaller scale.  I don't know how people handle the 15 card camps.  I can barely make up 5, so that is what I stick to.  My team and guests like the smaller version, so that helps ease my mind.  Here are the cards I made as the samples.

Credits for my CASEing...

The Lily Pad was CASE'd from Angie Juda.  She did it in the Subtle papers and so I just changed it up using the Lily Pad paper.  Thanks Angie! 
The Iris - thanks to Shannon at shannonkaypaperie.com.  I loved this one so much, I had to CASE it completely.
Tropical Oasis Die Cut Window - Thank You Wendy Cranford for your super video on how to make this card.  
The Honey Bee card, I partially cased from my friend Tracie Salo when we did a swap, but I also saw a similar one from Karen Ksenzahovic that was similar.  So Thanks to Tracie and Karen for the sweet honey inspiration. 
The Poppy card was also a CASE from my friend Mary Beth Guzzo in the same swap with Tracie and others.  Just used some different Poppy paper.  Thanks, Mary Beth!

Here are some other pictures taken that day..

My dear friend Nee always takes the most beautiful pictures and puts them in Pic Collage for me.  I really should learn how to do them but since Nee is here, I will leave it up to her!  :)

Our next Gathering is Sunday, March 22nd.  Come join us when we are going to do Easter projects.  What will they be???

Well, that is all for today.  I have some other cards to post but it will have to wait for a few days.  Be kind to one another, and take some time for Creating With Paper!


What fun we are having!

Greetings!

Wanted to share our January Craftin' Gals Sunday Gathering that was held January 23rd.  We opted for a lighter fare for food because all of us indulged during the Holidays.  I made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup in our Insta-Pot and we had a salad bar and fresh baked French bread.

We celebrated Valentines Day since our February meeting will be after Valentines Day.  I made two samples of simple projects ~ a Valentines Candy holder House and a simple Valentines card.  Here are the samples the gals used.

Here is the group

I just have the best group of gals, missing a few...Love them all! 

I have had a chance to work with the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Suite.  The two "bundles" are so gorgeous, I didn't want to stop!  Here are my "experiments".

I also whipped up this birthday card for the sweet 1 year old cousin of mine.  I love the little ladybug stamps and dies.

New Year, New Products, New Ideas!

Hello, Hello, Hello!

I didn't fall of the face of the earth (at least yet), but gosh we have been sooo busy the last three months.  Those of you that have stuck with me during my blogging block, thank you!  I am back now and hope to start getting the mojo going!

I wanted to share some Stampin' Up! news with you all.  The new Occasions catalog is live now and of course along with it comes Sale-A-Bration!  You can click on the pictures of the catalogs in the sidebar to see all the NEW and exciting products that are out.  Sale-A-Bration is such a great thing...purchase $50.00 from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs and get a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  There are some very cute things in there...so be sure to look at all of the new products, but don't forget about the Annual Catalog!  Sale-A-Bration goes through March 31st, and the Occasions is good until the new Annual Catalog comes out in May!  I can't imagine what that will be like!  More new products!  Yippee!

I just recently received some of the New Occasions products, so I am going to get right in and start using some of them so I can show you some possibilities!  For now, enjoy this cute video from Stampin' Up! introducing the new catalog.

 

Well, that is all for today...I will see you soon.  Until then, be kind to one another and remember to make time for Creating With Paper!


Creating With Paper has Occasions and Sale-A-Bration!

Greetings Paper Peeps!

Happy New Year once again..have you recovered from the Holidays?  We have although we just started taking Christmas down in preparation for Valentines!  Never ends, but we love it!
