Hello all! Today is the last day of the 2016-2017 catalog. Tomorrow is the big day that our new annual catalog will go live! I'm sure you've seen some sneak peeks that have gotten you excited and tomorrow you will finally be able to order everything you want! I wonder if you also might be bummed that some of your favorite products are retiring? I'll definitely miss some products but honestly, I'm so excited for all of the new and amazing things the new catalog has to offer that I can feel good about letting go of the old stuff! I pretty much need all of the new ribbon (and I'm not even a ribbon person) and there are some great new embellishments and the Glossy Paper! Well, I'll get to the glossy paper tomorrow. In fact, I've got a big surprise for you tomorrow so please be sure to come back and visit me. Tomorrow is the debut of a new design team that I am part of. It is called Creating Kindness and we will be launching something pretty special. So come back tomorrow please!
Today, I'm saying goodbye to Stylish Stems... a set I "loved" and never used... Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. The trouble is that I'm just not that good at layering up the pieces when it comes to sets like this. I did my best though.
I used all In Colors on these flowers except for the Daffodil Delight. I love the way colors go so well together.
Something fun that I want to point out is the embossed "Happy Birthday" sentiment. It's embossed in the new Berry Burst and I love the bold look of it. First, I stamped onto the Versamark Ink Pad. Then I stamped onto the Berry Burst pad. I quickly stamped onto my cardstock and then heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder. This is an awesome way to be able to heat emboss in ANY color!
Well, that's it for today. So long, farewell to you Stylish Stems... you will soon be replaced with Flirty Flowers from the new catalog because they are flirty and fun and want me to color them.
I'm signing off with a few questions today... Are you sad to see any product in particular going away? What are you most excited about in the new catalog? Have you ever tried the heat embossing technique that I shared today?
Ok, that's really it! Have an amazing day today and please come back tomorrow for something new and very exciting!
