New Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs coming soon!

The new seasonal Occasions catalog will be mailed to all my existing customers in December, and you’re going to love it!!!  I had a sneak peak, so I can pass on a few tidbits.  This catalog is geared towards birthdays (heavily emphasized!), Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s and Father’s Day, and graduations.  It basically covers all your crafting needs for “occasions” to start off 2016.  And, after skimming through it, my reaction is WOW, WOW, WOW!!!  There are some totally awesome products.

But, the best news is that the new Occasions catalog coincides with Sale-a-bration.  What is Sale-a-bration you ask?  Well, it’s only the BEST time of the year to buy products!!!  Every time you spend $50 on Stampin’ Up! products, you get to pick a FREE Sale-a-bration gift from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  (And, yes all my existing customers are getting one of these catalogs in December  too!)  I also got a chance to peruse through this catalog and I’m in love with some of the free products and can’t wait to get my hands on them.  All these products are new and exclusive to Sale-a-bration, and they include stamps, designer papers, specialty papers, and Project Life card collections!  In addition, during Sale-a-bration you earn $25 EXTRA rewards when you host a qualifying party or workshop.  It’s also the best time of the year to join Stampin’ Up! to become a demonstrator, because you get to choose extra products in your Starter Kit!  During Sale-a-bration, you can join Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator for only $99 and you can choose $155 worth of products!!!

Oh, What Fun!  More Christmas Inspiration:

I have another Christmas card to share today featuring the Oh, What Fun stamp set and Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I love combining these two products.  I originally purchased the Oh, What Fun stamp set to make tags (as it coordinated with the Oh, What Fun Tag Project Kit.  But, I’ve discovered that I love it for cards as well.  Not only are there lots and lots of holiday sayings and greetings, but there are cute little embellishment stamps, such as the holly and flourish shown below in gold embossing.

I was going for a chalkboard effect with my greeting, so I stamped with White Craft ink on Basic Black card stock.  This provides a dramatic label that the eye is immediately drawn towards.

I also incorporated a few Gorgeous Grunge stamps on this card to add some gold embossed splatters and lines on the background paper.

The Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper is so versatile!  I not only used it for my background, I cut out one of the poinsettias as a decoration.

Lastly, I added some fun gold accents to this card.  There’s a small Gold Metallic Foil Doily tucked under the tag, as well as some scrunched up Gold Metallic Thread.  I think those little accents really add to the WOW factor.
