New Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog!

Hi friends! How are you?

It’s a cold, wet, gray day here in Eugene, Oregon, but look what just arrived to make things brighter! The new annual Stampin’ Up! catalog is finally in my hands and it is amazing!

So many gorgeous new suites, stamps sets, dies and products. Be still my paper craft lovin’ heart!

Do you live in the U.S. and need a copy of your very own? Here’s how to receive one:

  1. Place an order through my demonstrator website here: All customers who order through my website or at a workshop will automatically receive a complimentary catalog from me! Already ordered? Your catalog has arrived and will be coming to you this month!
  2. Be a member of the Stamp of the Month Club. Club members automatically receive a complimentary catalog. (Many club members are fellow demos or already have a local demonstrator, so they let me know they don’t need a catalog, which I greatly appreciate. Thank you!)
  3. Sign up to become a demonstrator. Have you been thinking about signing up? Become a demonstrator and you will receive a complimentary catalog with your first order!
  4. Request a catalog from me. Need a demonstrator? I’d love to help you out! Email me at for your complimentary catalog.

Thanks for stopping by today. I had promised a post about super quick teacher gifts with retiring products, but I was too busy helping at my kids’ school, so come back soon and I’ll be sure to post it.

To all my current customers- your catalogs are here and I’ll be mailing them out in May!

Have a wonderful day!


Gorgeous (Free!) Glimmer

Hi friends! How are you today?

Here is one of the cards we made last night at a workshop. I just had to show off the gorgeous new Bermuda Bay glimmer paper. Just look at how it sparkles in the light!

This 6×6 glimmer paper comes in three gorges colors and is available free with a $50 purchase for just a little while longer. (While supplies last, so don’t miss out!)

Stampin’ Tip

1. The Lift Me Up Bundle comes with cute little clouds. You can add interest with a sponge dauber and your stamp pad. Just sponge a little color on the edges- so cute!

2. Pair the Cupcakes and Carousels 6×6 dsp with the Lift Me Up Bundle for really fun cards.

3. Want an easy trick for gluing intricate dies? Use a silicone mat! Put a dab of multipurpose glue on the mat. Place the die on the mat, upside-down. Use a sponge to pick up a little glue (not too much!) and sponge all over the back, being careful to not shift the die. Now you can glue it down. Use wet wipes to quickly clean your mat. Viola!

4. Want to step this card up? Add the layers of color to the hot air balloon, under the glimmer paper.

Watercolor Pencils- Almost Gone!


Hello friends! How are you today?

The Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog has been incredibly popular and one of the hottest new items is almost gone: watercolor pencils. If you have not had a chance to try these, they are a must have!


For this card, I used the free Sale-A-Bration paper called Inside the Lines and my aqua painter to blend the watercolor pencils. I fussy cut a few flowers for texture and added a bit of shimmer to the wings with Wink of Stella.

Would you like some great tips on how to use watercolor pencils? Watch this video with Shannon West from Stampin’ Up!


These watercolor pencils are going fast, so be sure to pick yours up before they are gone!

Happy stampin’ friends!
