W is for Watercolor Pencils

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.Today I am showcasing the Watercolor Pencils. This is my favorite new item in the Occasions catalog!  I was so excited when I saw them featured on page 24 and couldn’t wait to get my hands on these! I shared previously a couple of projects I made using these.  You can see those projects HERE or HERE .  For this sweet Valentine card I used the watercolor pencils with the blender pen to color a heart cut from a piece of Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  You can get this paper for Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 4 – March 31).

My card base is 4 1/4 x 8 1/4 scored at 5 1/2.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Sending Love Paper Stack in the Occasions catalog. It is cut at 4 x 2 1/2.  I cut another piece at 2 1/4 x 6 to line the back of the envelope.

The inside panel is a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 red cardstock.  I used the heart framelits (retired) to cut the 4 different sized hearts but you could do the same thing with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (I wish I had those!!!). I used the Sealed with Love Stamp Set to stamp the sentiments in real red ink. I popped the watercolored layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked the smaller heart behind. I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the flowers and a white organza bow on top of the heart. This Valentine is ready to send!

In case you missed the video showcasing all the wonderful ways you can use these watercolor pencils you can watch it here.

These watercolor pencils have been so popular that they are currently out of stock! Oh no! Stampin’ Up! is expecting to get a large shipment in mid February. I love the way these pencils are Stampin’ Up! colors so they coordinate with our other products!

N is for Notes…Love Notes Framelits Dies

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Love Notes Framelits Dies from the Sending Love Suite featured on pages 14 in the catalog. I made several projects today using these dies and photos.

img_8719

These photos are of my daughter’s cat, Storm.  Ariane rescued her and 4 of her brothers and sisters from a storm drain.  They were frostbitten and needed to be bottle fed. We found homes for the other 4 kittens but Storm and Ariane had bonded. For 6 years this cat slept with her, sat on her lap while she worked on her computer, and followed her around like a puppy dog.  Storm even waited outside the bathroom door while she showered!  I don’t know who misses my daughter more, the cat or me! I’m sending this card, picture frame, and thank you notes in her Valentine’s Day care package.

img_8722

I love photography as much as I love stamping! This Valentine card and coordinating envelope were quick & easy to make using the Love Notes Framelits Dies and Sending Love Stamp Set.  I purchased this set as a bundle and saved 10%.

sealed-with-love-bundle

Look at all these dies…14 of them!  I love the mini envelope die!  You can even remove the little note from inside the envelope. How adorable! I wanted it to look like Storm was bringing the note to her.

img_8721

I cut the die from the Sending Love Glassine Sheets. The note was stamped on Blushing Bride cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum ink. The colors match Storm’s cute little nose and ears! I used glue dots to adhere the envelope.  I even stamped the back of the envelope and added a die cut heart.

img_8720

I purchased the cute little silver picture frame at the Dollar Store!  (I certainly didn’t break the bank on this gift!) I stamped the sentiment and then die cut the cluster of hearts from the set and attached it to the picture frame with 2 mini glue dots.  Easy does it!

img_8714

My daughter’s favorite color is purple and I was so excited when I found purple wrapped KitKat candy!  The perfect gift from her kitty!

I always make my daughter’s thank you cards and she sent out the last of her thank you notes after Christmas.  I used some more photos of her cat and made these thank you notes using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 note cards & envelopes for $6.00…I think that’s the best deal in the catalog!  I use them all the time for thank you notes!  I printed the 2 x 3 photos at CVS.  I got 4 per sheet for just 35 cents!

img_8723

I used the Falling Petals Embossing Folder to emboss the front of the card.  I couldn’t decide which I liked better for the mini envelope… smoky slate or blushing bride. What do you think? I stamped the thanks from Suite Sentiments and wrapped the mini envelope with black baker’s twine.  I love these stinkin’ cute mini envelopes with removable notes! This card would be great for our cat sitter too!

G is for Glassine Sheets

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I’m showcasing the Sending Love Glassine Sheets. These glassine sheets are 6 x 12 and printed with delicate white hearts.  They are great for bags and envelopes. I made a sweet and simple bag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die.

img_8497

Watch this short 3 minute video to see how to put the treat bag together and check out some other project ideas using this die set.

I used Tear & Tape to adhere my bag together. I filled my bag with some Hershey kisses then folded the top over, punched two holes to thread my ribbon, and tied a simple knot. I stamped the sentiment from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set in real red ink on the heart die cut.  I attached it to the gorgeous lace doily with a Stampin’ Dimensional and adhered it to the bag.I added a heart enamel shape as a finishing touch.  Now that’s what I call simple and quick!

You can easily change the sentiment for whatever occasion. These would make great favors for a wedding or shower. You could fill the bags with confetti, bird seed, etc. They are also food safe so homemade cookies work too!  Yum!  I’m sending these “kisses” to my daughter who went back to college this week. (I miss her already!)

Stamp Set: Sealed with Love  Ink: Real Red  Papers: Sending Love Glassine Sheets, Very Vanilla  Tools & Accessories: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Lace Doilies, Real Red Stitched Satin Ribbon, Brights Enamel Shapes, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots

 

 

Shop my online store using the  January Hostess Code EPGDT3KF and I will send you a kit to make today’s project as my thanks for shopping with me. Everything will be precut and ready to assemble.  You just stamp your sentiment and decide who it’s going to!

Have a wonderful day!

There were also photo ops and lots of display boards showcasing the new product and ideas. As I walked around each corner I said, “WOW!” again and again!

My suitcase was packed full going home with all the swaps, new product gifts, and prizes. I actually had to ship some of my clothes home as I wasn’t leaving my new stamp sets behind! LOL

 

Our team, the PALS, gathered for a pizza social after the event. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and congratulate our fearless leader, Mary Fish, who was named the TOP Demonstrator in the WORLD! WOW!!!  I love this picture with my uplines. I am surrounded by greatness!
