I just realised I have forgotten to show you the llittle gifts I made for those attending the recent Stamp Camp.
I used the Floral Boutique Thinlits to cut the design in the sides and placed a battery operated candle inside to give a lantern effect.
I have been having amazing fun playing with my pre order products!

I have been busily getting ready for my catalogue launch next week, but I have also been inspired by the Caseing the Catty website. I thought I would base one of my samples for the launch on a catalogue launch and kill two birds with one stone.
I chose the Sweet Cupcake set and cased the card on page
It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the WISH is cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, and gives the card a beautiful sparkle.
Here is a link the the Caseing the Catty website if you are interested,
The wait is over, ordering has started for the new 2016-2017 Catalogue.
I have some samples to show you that feature stamp sets and accessories from the new catalogue.
Today also marks the beginning of a great hostess promotion too! When your party reaches sales of $450, as the hostess you will receive an extra $50 worth of Stampin' Rewards.
Here are a couple of projects I have made using the new Speciality DSP Affectionately Yours that will be the hostess gifts for the first two hostesses during this promotion.
The first gift is a covered notebook and matching pen. The NOTES heading has been highlighted by covering it with glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen, which gives it a shiny finish.
The second gift is a small bag which holds 4 note size cards. I had great fun playing with our new Copper Embossing Powder on this set. As we don't have Copper Foil paper, and neither Gold or Silver was suitable I made my own Copper Paper by applying Versamark directly to Whisper White paper and heat embossing a large area that I could cut the THANKS from.
I also used the Copper embossing powder to do the greeting on the Mint Macron card. For more information on this technique, contact me.
Here's a close up of the greeting and the bag,
Now for something really unusual (for me anyway), a scrapbook page!
I love scrapbooking, but it always seems to take a back seat to cardmaking, which I need to fix.
On this page I used Kraft as the base and a sheet from the Speciality DSP Affectionately Yours, as a highlight. Stamp sets used are Gorgeous Grunge, Layering Love and Friendly Wishes.
As the text says, although this photo is slightly out of focus, it still emphasises that cheeky grin!
And to demonstrate how far behind I am with my scrapbooking, this cheeky monkey turns 17 in a couple of months, oops!
The final items I have to show you are some cards made from my favourite sets from the Occasions Catalogue that are carrying over to the Annual Catalogue.
From left to right, Balloon Celebrations, Helping Me Grow and Balloon Builders.
That was a huge post, I hope you made it to the end.
I said that this was going to be a special post, and it's not just because of the New Catalogue starting today. It is also part of my application to be chosen to complete one of the display boards for Onstage Live in November, which is our biannual Stampin' Up! celebration. If i get chosen, I will receive some of the new products from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue to make samples from that will be displayed as inspiration for my fellow demonstrators. So wish me luck!
If you do not yet have a new catalogue and would like one, let me know and I will get one to you.
I have updated my Catalogue Launch and class dates on this so let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to attend.
I love this time of year when the products from the upcoming 2016-17 catalogue arrive and inspiration flows.
Here are a couple of cards I have made with the Love and Affection Stamp set, firstly using the matching DSP and the new Copper embossing powder. The second card uses the same set but the new in colour Sweet Sugarplum and the new Duet Banner punch and Thoughtful Banners stamp set.
The next set of cards uses on of the new Hostess sets called Love You Lots, and I do love it lots! These images were really fun to water colour.
I will be back soon with some very special projects,
I have lots to show and tell you today, so please read on.
Today's card features another image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. Watercoloured in Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow. The background DSP is from the It's Wild stack and the bow clip is new in the upcoming Occasions catalogue.

Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!
This little fells was made possible by my lovely team member Vickie. At our recent team day we had the opportunity to mingle and use some stamp sets that we don't own yourselves (yet!). This guy was made using the Playful Pals Stamp set and Thinlits Bundle. All you need to create an endless number of animal friends is contained in these sets. It's actually a box that you can open and put goodies inside.
One week to go,
See you tomorrow,
