Woohoo the NEW Catalog!

Wow, the month of June has come and gone (literally, at least, on my blog - two posts and the month of June is done!). Although the beginning of the month was busy with the end of the school year, the last two weeks were the Best! I had an awesome time in Italy! It was fun-filled, awesome sights, excellent food (and plenty of it!!), and just an unforgettable trip!!

It is good to be back home, I guess! At least to get back to my stamping stuff (cause it's fun!!), and I'm even motivated to attempt some scrapping of pictures of my trip! But, on to some exciting stamping stuff to look forward to...

The NEW Catalog and Idea Book is here! So, I have them here, and ordering starts tomorrow! I will be trying to get them out to you before the next class (which is the second Friday this month, because of the 4th of July holiday). But if you're anxious to see the new book before I get in touch with you, or you with me - you will be able to see it online tomorrow!

In the meantime, here's some new stuff you'll see in the new catalog! This card is all done in the New In Line color Rich Razzleberry. The grosgrain is the coordinating color - and awesome, with white polka dots on one side and solid on the other side. The set I used is new as well; it's called Razzle Dazzle! Love the saying in it - "It's good to dream." The saying is punched out with a new punch, Modern Label. It's layered on a new coordinating piece that goes with a Big Shot die - of course a perfect match! Anways, a pretty simple layout, with a monochromatic scheme to keep it classic!

I'll look forward to sharing more new stuff on future posts, but I hope you'll make it to my next class on the 10th where we'll use lots of new stuff!

Thanks for stopping by,

Sneak Peek for Friday's Class!

So here's one of the cards we'll be making this Friday at our First Friday Technique Class! I saw the original idea on another blog about a year ago and I'm finally getting around to making it for class! We're calling it a Mini Envelope Money Card. The cover is made with the "Last Chance" papers of Baja Breeze (I'm sad to see this color go!!), Riding Hood Red and Slumber Party DSP. Also the words are from a "Last Chance" Set, Hugs and Wishes. And the Wish-Blower flower (isn't that what those weeds are called?!) is a Printed Window Sheet from the current Mini Catalog (that is also ending this month). Sounds like there's going to be nothing left of Stampin' Up! if you look at this card - but not to worry, we'll be in for some awesome new stuff! Stampin' Up! always has fun surprises ahead!!

So here's the inside where the mini envelope hides the money!! The mini envelope just becomes one of the layers that makes up this card! As long as the layer over the mini evelope is larger than 3"x3", it hides it! But of course, at class I'll have the layers cut and measured for you!! Also the card is accented with a Baja Breeze Corduroy button and Baja Breeaze wide grosgrain (more "Last Chance" items because of the color).

Hope to see you at class on Friday,


P.S. Don't be too sad about all the Last Chance items, it also means that the new catalog is about to be released - Woohoo!! It starts July 1st!
