New catty goods and Sale-A-bration preview

As promised, here's a look at some of the new catalog goodies and a Sale-a-bration set I got yesterday. As you can see I'm still on the Valentine's Day card kick. The Candy Lane Designer papers are too perfect for V Day. It's hard to see in the picture but I also used Stampin' Up's new Texturz plates for the Big Shot. The new Full Heart punch( $15.95) coordinates perfectly with the heart in the SAB Polka Dot punches set. Contact me and you can earn this set free with every $50 purchase from Feb 1 thru Mar 31st!

Recipe time:

Stamps: Polka Dot Punches, A Happy Heart

Papers: Candy Lane DSP, Riding hood red, pink pirouette, very vanilla

Inks: Riding Hood Red

Accessories: Big Shot texturz plate backgrounds 1, scallop edge punch, ticket corner punch, word window punch, full heart punch, very vanilla 5/8" grosgrain ribbon

I'll be at all day volleyball tournaments with my girls both Sat and Sun so no time to play and post. Have a good weekend!

HAPPY DAY! My first post!

It's a Happy Day for me! It's my first post to my new blog. I thought I'd start with a card I made that showcases all of Stampin' Up's In Colors. This card also uses the WOW Flowers stamp set and the Button Boquet Designer Buttons. The sentiments are from the retired Occasions Collection Level 2 set but there are tons of greetings sets in the Spring Summer Idea Book that you could use instead.
