Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Time are here!!

Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Time are here!!


Even though we’re in the grips of arctic cold here in the Deep South, thoughts are turning toward Valentine’s Day and spring with the new Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  You’re going to LOVE these new products!


The new Painted with Love Suite is just stunning, with lots of “bling” to it!  And it’s just one of the new products in this Occasions Catalog.  We’ll be using this gorgeous Painted with Love Designer Series Paper in next week’s Quick and Easy Cards Class to make a special little box.  Fun!  All customers will be receiving copies of the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  But if you just can’t wait, check out the PDF online version of the Occasions Catalog here and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure here.


One of the major harbinger’s of spring, of course, is daffodils, so I was absolutely thrilled to see Stampin’ Up’s new You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set–with daffodils!! An added feature is all of the sentiments included with this stamp set.  So many possibilities!!


Here’s just one project example made with this bright and cheerful set.


The daffodils just pop when colored using the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

Let’s talk about Sale-A-Bration!

LOTS of “Happy Happenings on the Hill!”  And, yes, I really do live on the side of a mountain here in beautiful North Georgia–bears, raccoons, mountain lions, deer, turkey and other assorted “critters” abound.
