BLOG TOUR~The new Freakin' Catalog!

 How about that new delicious Idea Book and Catalog?!?
I have been looking and dreaming over it ever since it came to my house. . .

The freaks wanted to show you some fun projects using new catalog
stamps, acessories, ie. deliciousness, so here we go!

(Working backward? No worries!
Here is Justin rocking the new products)

 I've made two things for the tour today.  The first is a clean and simple
note card using the new showstopping set:  Regarding Dahlias (130324)

We are making this card at my July 2nd stamp camp-
 Bermuda Bay is so gorgeous with the black and white!

My 10 year old daughter informed me that "the style" is black, white,
and bright-so I guess she inspired me here :)

Using Stazon Jet Black Ink (101406) on white paper, and 
choosing a bright color with your blender pen 
makes for some dramatic coloring!  The Stampin' Up! exclusive
Curly Label punch (119851) was used for the sentiment.


I had quite a bit of fun with this set,
so stop by or subscribe if you want to see more examples of  how
this set makes effortless and beautiful cards!

The little treat is an origami fold I learned years ago.  I will give
more details on how to do this later this week. . .
The front element is a sentiment from the Regarding Dahlias
stamp set-sweet and simple baby!


Layer it up!  Dimensionals all over the place :)

Stampin' Up gave me the paper for free this month!
I used the new Bold Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.

For my local ladies, there will be a treat for anyone
who brings a friend to Stamp Camp in July-
24 inches of new ribbon, and some fun new embellishments!  Woot!
  Thanks for taking the tour!  Next stop-Connie Tumm!


Leadership conference was FANTASTIC.

I'm back from Stampin' Up's leadership convention,
and I had SUCH A BLAST.

I learned so much, saw so many amazing projects,
had such a great time with friends, the list goes on.
My cup is full. . .now I need to get to work!

I have hundreds of photos from Leadership, and I plan to show you
some, as well as demonstrate many in my classes
over the next few months. . .I hope you can attend!  As always,
my events are listed on my Stampin' Up calendar here:

I will leave you with a funny video of one of our newest products!

This kit is appropriately called-Dude, You're Welcome!
and is currently available in my Stampin' Store.

I think it's hilarious, and I need it.

I plan to give another one to my husband for father's day,
because I want my own. . .and he is very particular.
His wood blocks will be all pristine and perfect,
and his stamps will be in the very center. . .
I can say this because he doesn't read my blog.
(Except he will now probably read my blog for the first time.)

Happy early Father's Day Honey!

One more product release today,
and I have highlighted it on my facebook page.

Happy Monday!
