Hello there friends and fans of the Paper Craft Crew! This is Cindy B here and hello again! I’ve been dealing with breast cancer and that’s why you haven’t seen me around much lately. I’m really hoping to get back on my feet again soon. This has not been fun.
Don’t you just love Pam’s new design of our blog?! It’s awesome! I love it. We are also so thrilled about the increased participation with our challenge. A new challenge goes up every Wednesday. I’m personally a Tuesday comment person so that I don’t miss out on leaving a comment on all of the beautiful cards and projects that YOU have made for us 🙂
So, what do you think of the new fabulous sneak peek from the new Spring Occasions 2017 Catalog AND Sale-A-Bration?! Very cool – literally! I used the brand new Cool Treats Product Suite on pages 32-33 in the Spring Catalog. This Product Suite is a must have (and you get 10% off!) – aren’t they all?! No, seriously, this one is. This is a full suite in that Stampin’ Up! gave us coordinating Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper, Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape, a new Ombre’ Ink Pad of Peekaboo Peach, an incredibly luscious stamp set of Cool Treats with the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies! Oh my! I left out the Sprinkles Embellishments! They were so much fun to make my shaker card with! The colors in this Product Suite are perfectly and beautifully coordinated of Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizazz, Peekaboo Punch, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White. I love it when Product Suites have so many colors to choose from! The possibilities are truly endless!
I had so much fun making this card. I should have done a video demonstrating to you how I enlarged the ice cream portion of the card on top of the cone, but I can do that at any time if you would like to see a short video as to how I did this. Please let us know in the comments. Remember, at the Paper Craft Crew, you will find everything Stampin’ Up! here and if that’s not your thing, then we have some awesome designers like Tenia, Jan and Justin, so far, that I know of, that use other products on their cards. I can guarantee you that if you look at their lovely cards, you will find something that is in your SU arsenal to match what you want to make.
Speaking of making beautiful projects, for Stampin’ Up!, the Spring Occasions Catalog is available for you to order from on January 4, 2017. The Spring Occasions Catalog, which is always in conjunction with the annual Sale-A-Bration, is where you spend $50 and get to pick a totally free product(s) from the SU Sale-A-Bration Brochure, and there is some great products in there this year, many of them coordinating with items in the Spring Catalog. It’s a win-win!
Not only that, if you wish to become a demonstrator, now is the ABSOLUTE best time to join and I will tell you why. We are almost all done making our Christmas projects and are a little bit ready to leave green and red behind for another year. Joining is fabulous! It’s only $99 and you pick your product + you get all of the business supplies that you need! Here’s the fun part, as a demonstrator, you already get to order a month in advance and see the catalogs a month before that time. When you place your very first SU order, you get 30% off of your entire order rather than the usual 20% discount. Imagine this, you will be able to order all of the lovely new products for Spring and get a lot of SAB products for free! When I placed my pre-order, I so scored! It was awesome! Free products, 30% off brand new products. That’s an easy decision for me. Please talk to your favorite design team member about Stampin’ Up! and become a member of their team. I promise you won’t regret it.
For my card, I used everything Cool Treats, even the Washi Tape! The Peekabook Peach Ombre’ Ink Pad is stamped on the inside of my card as another sentiment.
Personally, I’m so over Christmas cards and everything else, and of course, you want to play with the new and fun products, and that’s exactly what I plan on doing and you will see many more cards and projects made from our fabulous design team.
I know I’m late and we also have a new challenge going up tomorrow, but I wanted to share with you my sketch challenge card and the great new products that will be in your craft room soon!
We have so much to share with you at the Paper Craft Crew! We would like to thank you so very much for stopping by to visit us today and God bless!
