Baby Shower cards

I made these cards for 2 new babies in our family. The first one is from the Nursery Necessities. I cut out the sail boat and used a tooth pick to hold the sail up. I cased this from the Spring/Summer catalog. The pink card I cased from Alice Erickson. I just changed the color and I used Big on Spring. I used the onesie on the Let the Cute begin. I really loved the way Alice made the faux wains coating (I know that isn’t spelled correctly) LOL.

New Catalog

With so much going on at SU, I’m not sure where to start. You know with this being the 20th Anniversary for Stampin’ Up! The new catalog is up and running as of yesterday, 15% selected stamp sets, $99 starter kits for anyone interested in becoming a demonstrator, oh and don’t forget SU has partnered with Sizzix and we now sell the BigShot and have some exclusive dies. Whew! And I forgot to throw in Decor Elements. 

The new catalog is beautiful! So many new products like the new punches. OMG, we now have a 1 3/4 circle, large oval, square scallop, straight scallop & the Curly label punch. The new ribbons are yummy. We now have a few colors in 1″ double-stitched grosgrain, 7/8 poly-twill and more. Have you seen the new In-Colors yet? The beautiful Designer papers and Scrappin’ kits oh my! They brought back the Carousel Notes, this time in Ruby Red, Kiwi Kiss & Baja Breeze.
Another thing I love about the new catalog is the name. It’s now called the 2008 Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog. And before each section they have a Stampin’ Technique page, with color photos and step by step instructions.

Convention 2008

I am in a mad rush to get everything done for convention. These are the swap totes I have made for my roommates. I am trying to load the other photos, but for some reason it keeps coming up as an error. I will try again later. I haven’t posted in a while because I have been trying to get all my swaps and 3-D items ready.
