I LOVED this mini-catalog and bought way too much from it.
This scrapbook page uses one of the sets from that catalog: Friendly Flowers
The images work perfectly with the scallop punch and the 1 3/8"punch.
I did cut the largest stamped image out by hand, but it makes a beautiful focal point on a scrapbooked page.
Kraft cardstock, Retired Hostess set (paper and stickease), Stampin' Dimensionals
Inks: Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate
The Fresh Cuts promotion (see June 16th and 17th below) ends today as well.
I love those die cut notes, and am so glad that they will be in the new catalog!
It was exciting to get a sneak peek at those products.
Let me know if there is anything you need to order today...I'll get your order on it's way to you!

I stayed up (way too) late last night to make this card for her.
I thought the whimsical, sparkly images really captured how I feel about my daughter's personality. I was thrilled when my husband said, "That card is HER!" I will be thrilled to see her face when she opens it tonight!

Dates: June 1-30, 2008
I'll have a sample up for you tomorrow.
My first workshop was in April of 2007, and we made these two cards.
I still remember how nervous I was that night...and how excited I was to share something I love with others.
I still love what I do, and love the creative process of coming up with new designs for cards (and scrapbooking pages).
I will be using this blog to post Stampin' Up! specials and promotions, and also to let you know about upcoming parties or open houses.
Please bookmark this site and let me know what you'd like to see here...I'll be updating frequently.
