Spring Occasions Catalog - Celebrate the Everyday

This new Stampin' Up! catalog is ALL about celebrating! Its chock FULL of celebrating! And that's awesome for us, because right now it coincides with the SALE-a-bration event too!!

I love the fresh new layout for the catalog, with the projects and ideas really highlighted in the front pages, and then the specs and details on the new product suites at the back. I think it gives you so much inspiration without bogging you down in details. And oh my gosh, INSPIRATION!

(I know, I use CAPS a little too often up there, but just wait till you see the catalog - you'll agree, CAPS!!)

Looking through it, you'll find great ideas for parties and celebrations, some super "pinterest-worthy" home decor ideas - beautiful for spring or Easter or to give as gifts. Speaking of gifts!! I am super excited by how much Stampin' Up! is stepping up their gift giving options to help a busy mama out! Be it boxes, bags, or tags, the new products are simply scrumptious! Looks like it took you hours, but whip up some gorgeous class treats, teacher appreciation gifts, or birthday/wedding/shower favors  in no time at all! Thank you!! With all the holidays and gift giving occasions coming up, I can really Celebrate all the options I find in the catalog!! LOL

AND - with every $50 you spend on these supplies to WOW with the gifting, you'll get a FREE gift yourself with one of the Sale-a-bration special product sets! Available only through March 31st, Sale-a-bration has lots of rewards for shopping, hosting a workshop, or joining (its the BEST time to join, trust me!).

Contact me today to find out more information, and request my newsletter so you're always in the know! In the comments section, let me know if you'd like me to send you these fun new catalogs!

Here are some quick cards I made from the Water Color Wonder Designer Note Cards & Envelopes. I love that even though they have their own distinct product suite in this new catalog, because Stampin' Up! has coordinating families of colors I was able to use the Gingham Garden and Epic Day Washi tapes to embellish the envelopes. You've got to feel these note cards too - heavy watercolor paper, just very deluxe! Great for giving as gifts, or using yourself! Love!!

 To make your own: Water Color Wonder Note Cards & Envelopes, Bring on the Cake and Lots of Thanks stamp sets, nature motifs from Simply Sketched Hostess stamp set; Epic Day This and That Washi Tape; Gingham Garden Washi Tape, Black and Gumball Green Ink.

I love you more! No, I love YOU More! Limited Edition Valentines

That is the argument around our house... not a bad debate to have! :-)

As a mom of three, I truly appreciate when I can take a shortcut and still manage a WOW! Stampin' Up! has saved me again for Valentines Day, and I know you'll agree when you see how ADORABLE this sweet suite is!

For class treats, coworker gifts, or any other group you may feel gifty towards, I love these Sweetheart Treat bags! The color just pops, they're a nice quality wight paper, and really, with the kit you're ready to slip some cookies inside and call it a sweet treat indeed! The die cut labels and coordinated bakers twine make these instantly finished, and using  stamp sets you can pretty much customize them for all your small gift packaging!

The stamp sets are just too versatile to pass up - mushy enough for the love of your life, but still sweet to give to coworkers or neighbors. They'll manage to keep 'Wow!-ing' through the year, perfect for love notes, anniversaries, weddings or bridal showers, scrapbook pages, mini-albums for travel or special occasions, I could just go on and on! Take a look for yourself:

Not keen on getting inky with the littles? Saved again: The Monster Hugs come in a blue Boy or pink Girl version, just add a treat and have your little monster sign their name! You could get the boy or girl depending on which type of monster you have; or mix up the sets and personalize them for your childs classmates. A fun and easy project, just a bit of assembly and again with that fantastic Wow factor!

 And last, but not least in this suite of Valentines Day sweetness, the Sweet Sayings Cards and Envelopes are a really nice way to pass along some love to those around you. You've got a dozen pre-printed card bases ready to personalize with your stamp set of choice, and coordinated envelopes. You could hand them out to your friends and family, or the mailman or the school bus driver... Everyone could use a Valentine! :-)

I know, right?! SWEET!!
But hurry -these are only available until January 27th OR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!
Edited 1/30/ab: You should still order soon, they are seeing very low numbers in the stamp sets, and you need time to get your treats ready! ;-) But they are available until 2/14/14 now, while supplies last. 
So get your order in soon!! Use January's Mystery Hostess Code  9DZNGGD7 when you order and you'll be entered to win free product! Email me your wish list and contact info, and I'll get in touch with you to let you know if you were randomly selected as the hostess! Order online at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/midnightcrafter
