I had a busy day yesterday, but couldn't resist sitting down for a couple of minutes and making something quick that I could use these new "glass" buttons on! These are coming in the new catalog, and YES I ordered 12 cases of catalogs yesterday, so there will be no shortage of them, local ladies! : ) Stay tuned and after I get the shipping notice, watch for my annual Distribution Daze email with open house hours for you to drop by when it is convenient and pick yours up!
So back to the lovely buttons! I won these on the incentive trip by spinning the Prize Wheel they have set up in the Hospitality Suite, and I was drawn to them immediately because they remind me of the glass doorknobs in my Grandma Griffin's house in Minneapolis. I thought those were so pretty. When I was little I pretended they were diamonds. And now--how many years later--ahem--I am playing with them on my stampin' projects.
I used the smallest two sizes on these quick cards, but there is a larger size that will be awesome for boxes and flower pins and other 3-D items. I really like that the holes are large enough to easily put Baker's Twine through them, too--that was good thinkin'!
Did you see I used Twitterpated and the Tea Shoppe stamp set from the last Occasions Mini Catalog? I am soooo pleased to announce that they made it to the big catalog! Twitterpated will be available when the new catalog begins on June 1st, and Tea Shoppe and these other mini catalog sets are available all the way through:
- Baby Prints
- Love & Laughter and coordinating wheel
- Bordering on Romance (and Adorning Accents!)
- Apothecary Art (and Labels Collection Framelits!)
- Mixed Bunch (and punch!)
- Tea Shoppe and coordinating wheel
- Loving Thoughts (whoo hoo!!! and there's new sets to coordinate with these words!!)
- Gently Falling (from the Holiday Mini, available in the big catalog June 1st)
- Christmas Lodge (Holiday Mini, available June 1st)
I cannot WAIT for you all to see the new catalog! There are some sets in there that some of you have been wishing for for a very long time! I thought of several of you in particular when I was first looking through it, when I saw different things I knew you were going to love. Gracious, but I love this time of year! And I really love the $99 Starter Kit, which includes $125 worth of YOUR CHOICE of products, plus all the business tools you'll need to begin a business, whether just for a hobby, or as a money-maker, or to completely change your life, like Stampin' Up did for me. Email me today for details!
Yes, I can't wait... however, FOCUS on the retirement lists this month, ok? Those sets are going away forever--never to return--so if you want them, you MUST purchase them in May. And the Retiring Accessories list contains two full pages of sale items that you really should take a peek at! If you're not sure about the whole Online Ordering thing, just email me your order and I'll fix you up. I don't want anyone to miss out!
