Hello Again!

Wow! It has been a long time since I last posted. I have been in a stampin’ rut lately and so when you aren’t making many cards, there isn’t a lot to post about! It always seems this happens around Christmas time…I tend to burn myself out making Christmas cards and then I just don’t feel like stamping. I also got a new job so I have been busy settling into that. I think it was a good move since I will not have tax season anymore in a couple months so that means more time to stamp!

Other stampin’ news is that the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration & Occasions Catalog Premier was last night! Oh it was so much fun! It is a really good time when you fill a theater with Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and I love listening to everyone oh and ah over new products and just get excited about what is in the new catalog. Honestly, I this event could not have come at a better time because it has helped me get inspired again and want to get in my stamp room and STAMP!

So…do you want a sneak peak of the new 2015 Occasions Catalog?!?! Of course you do! So here it is!

It is so beautiful! And guess what? That lovely bouquet on the cover, it is make of paper! And it gets better! It is a kit inside the catalog! I can just image making those flowers and attaching it to my grapevine wreath for Spring.

So since I have been in a bit of a rut, I have been focusing on 3×3 cards. I also have a lot of 3″ Kraft paper left over from my Christmas cards so expect to see a lot of 3×3 Kraft bases =) I borrowed the hostess set Hello There from my amazing friend and also her Crushed Curry embossing powder to create the center of the flower. I wrinkled up some Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo paper that I used the Scalloped Punches on and created a super easy flower. Simple and quick!

So stay tuned for some more posts and a sneak peak of a new stamp set from the 2015 Occasions catalog! Thanks for stopping by and forgive me for being silent for so long!

Happy stamping!
