The stamp set will be available on October 14,but you can click here now to see the flyer to see true size.

Tomorrow I have a video for you using the Watercolor Winter Card Kit! I was going to post today but that would be a very LONG post so I’ll save it for tomorrow.

The Label flip card die is a great deal at $8 off. I know a lot of you have the circle flip die so this is a less expensive way to add another to your collection of those.
And Yippee Skippee is on sale, too! Don’t miss your chance to have a stamp that says I Freakin’ Love You (someone must love that saying somewhere because it’s a big seller!)
The new heart punch is on sale, the Sweetheart punch, was added in this year’s catalog. It’s a little more curvy than the regular heart punch. There’s a coordinating stamp set (not on sale) that you may like with the punch:
Tomorrow I’m off to the gorgeous St. George, Utah for the SU Founders trip. I’m grateful to have earned this Top 100 trip again this year and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us! I’ve made 113 of the same card and on the PJ night, we’ll swap with each other so I’ll come home with 113 different ones.
Here is the packet that came in the mail from SU with my luggage tags and agenda. The theme for this year, Home for the Holidays, sounds like hot cocoa in a lodge:)
I’m a lucky stamper to be able to swap 10 cards each month with a group of demonstrators around the states. I love getting my box each month to see what they created! Here are a few from this month. (I love them all but have a full day ahead of me and have to limit today!)
Kimberly Allen is a master at the coloring with any medium and now here with the Blendies, just perfect!
See how she used the light gray for shadows around the flowers? Adds so much. She used Corner Garden, which looks like nothing when you see it in black and white in the catty 🙂
I love this bird because it’s so realistic! This one was stamped by Carole Gilmore using the stamp set, An Open Heart:
I tried to use the SU Stencils to create a plaid using this set, but I don’t think it was too successful.
What do you think?
A few new item from SU and the weekly Deals:

The description says “Make the holidays count by counting down the days with this creative photopolymer set. Perfect for stamping advent calendars, it’s sure to be a centerpiece of your season.

In the wee hours, if I find the Ipad on my nightstand, I might visit Pinterest. If I’m feeling unorganized, there’s a million ways to solve any problem. If I’m feeling plump that day, I may look for healthy recipes. If I’m feeling lonely, I look at boston terrier puppies….Pinterest is the fix for just about mood 🙂
Sometimes I look through the stamping and papercrafting, save a few for inspiration.
Sadly, this one had no name or watermark on it, as it often happens on Pinterest. I loved the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron. We don’t have the eyelets or that stamp anymore, but I made my own version of it.
Here’s my “PIN-spired” version:
I used the stamp set in the Occasions catalog called So Very Grateful, which will not be carrying over into the new catty so if you want it, get it before June 1st.
16.95 Clear Mount, # 133053
Pansy Punch for the flower, Bird Builder punch for the leaves. We have a super cool new DSP coming out in the new catty called Typeset – thin newsprinty paper that will be SO useful for lots of projects.
Thank you for the inspiration, wherever you are!
We have a new Photopolymer Stamp Set, Limited Availability which means while supplies last:
Super cute, I bought one. Cake measures 1″ wide x 1-3/4″ tall to give you an idea of size or you can print the flyer HERE for true size.
27 stamps, 13.95 Photopolymer
