Forever Blossoms Sneak Peek

Here is another sneak peek from the upcoming Stampin’ Up!® January-June 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Occasions Catalog).  This is another Make ‘N Take card we made at OnStage in November.  Again, I didn’t actually make it at the event.  I always like to bring the Make ‘N Takes home so I don’t feel rushed.  I guess I am more of a quiet stamper.

This card uses a stamp set called Forever Blossoms.  It has a set of matching dies called Cherry Blossom Dies and you will be able to save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  These two products are part of a larger Suite called Parisian Blossoms.  It is an amazing suite of products.  It was the first time I ordered all the products in the Suite using the Bundle item number Stampin’ Up!® provides.  If you don’t know this, SU now offers one item number for you to order everything in a Suite.  It is awesome because you don’t have to enter each product individually.  It saves a lot of time.

To make this card I first stamped the cherry blossoms in Smoky Slate then cut them out using the matching die.  I used my Light and Dark Petal Pink and Old Olive Blends to color the image.  This was layered on top of a piece of the Designer Series Paper  called Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP.  This paper has Champagne Foiling throughout it.  It is gorgeous!  The sentiment is from another sneak peek stamp set called Timeless Tropical.  I stamped it in Smoky Slate and punched it out using the Story Label Punch.  The ribbon is also part of this new Suite and is Petal Pink with Champagne edges.  Lastly, I added a few of the Champagne Rhinestones that are included in the Suite.

Stampin’ Up!’s Year-End Closeout is almost here! Beginning December 3 and while supplies last, you can save big on a selection of retiring and surplus items including holiday catalog items, stamp sets, and Paper Pumpkin past kits. Shop early to avoid missing out! Supplies are limited and popular items will sell out quickly. This amazing sale ends on January 2. I will have more information tomorrow!


Hello everything.

Last weekend I flew down to Charlotte, NC to go the the Stampin’ Up!® OnStage (convention).  Rob and I flew down on Thursday and met Buffy and Mike there.  As you know, Buffy is my BFF. We only get to see each other twice a year at Stampin’ Up!® Up! events but it always seems like I just saw her yesterday.

Friday night we did a little shopping before attending CentreStage.  CentreStage is a dinner and training for Stampin’ Up! leaders.  You have to be Silver Elite and above to attend.  The best part was we got our hands on the new 2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  I have to say, it is gorgeous and full of amazing products.  You are going to love it!

Saturday was the actual OnStage Local event.  The only problem was, I didn’t make it.  I picked up a really bad stomach bug and could not even get out of bed.  All day.  It was awful and I was so upset to miss it.  Needless to say it was an expensive trip for spending the day in a hotel bed.

I do have some pictures to show you that I took while at CentreStage.  There are not the best pictures because I just took them quickly thinking I would get better ones the next day.  Of course, that didn’t happen.

Here is a picture of the cover.

Here are the new InColors.  They are Rococo Rose, Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock (gorgeous), Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile.

Here are some sneak peeks of some of the bundles beginning with my favorite called Come Sail Away:
