New Mini Catalog -- Live Yesterday!

Good day to all my friends!

The 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog is now live!! It runs from September 1st to January 3rd.

A few things you might want to look for:
*New Hostess Program
*Simply Scored Board
*Great new autumn paper and a matching stamp set, fabric and coordinating buttons!
*1"x8" Cellophane Bags (for pretzels, gum balls or other treats)
*Mini Jingle Bells
*Dear Santa stamp set and a matching Stocking BigZ Die
*Stiched Stockings and matching Stocking Builder Punch and "Stitched Stockings" stamp set
*Peekaboo Frames and a 1" Square Punch (plus my favorite, a Christmas Countdown Stamp set)
*New Holiday Personalized Name Stamps

I love all of the new products! Click on the catalog image above to be connected to my store and all of the great products in the catalog. Better yet, if there's something in there that you like, PLEASE call me for a catalog and I'll mail it right out or drop it off to you!

Now, for a quick card share -- this card is for my dear daughter, Lyndsey, who turned 16 today!

Lyndsey's 16th BD card

I wanted to do something special for Lyndsey's card, and the gorgeous Spice Cake paper from the holiday mini catalog just "screamed" special! I used the stamp set, Array of Sunshine. It's available to hostesses with a $150 party. Call me to schedule one today! I'll help you get this new set ... and more!! For other details, I think the stamp set for the sentiment was Perfect Words, another Hostess stamp set. The original sentiment was "On a scale of one to ten, you're an 11." Well, she can't be an 11 on her 16th Birthday, can she??!! So, I used the Billboard alphabet die to make a "16" (it's a modified "a" and an "i") out of the Pool Party paper, and attached it to vanilla card stock, punched out using the 3/4" oval punch. I'm very ingenious, aren't I?! (Or is that "in-Jeannious?" LOL?)

Close-up view of Lyndsey's card -- there's a lot of dimension going on here!

One last thing -- tomorrow I'm starting a new blog series called "Step-It-Up Saturdays". Check out my 3 cards, all using one stamp set, but each a little bit different: a basic, an intermediate, and an all-out "bam" card!

Hope you come back to visit tomorrow!
