Installment #2 of Step It Up Sunday will premier tomorrow. I hope you are enjoying this series.

I’m super busy this weekend. Tomorrow, Sunday is my big annual BOGO event. I sell retired items for the 2016-2017 catalog. then you get  an equivalent amount of items from the new catalog for FREE! I’m preparing lots of samples, goodie bags, lemon bars, and make & takes. Thus, the relatively short post!

If you are in the area, please come over tomorrow at 1:30. Let me know you are coming so that I can prepare enough goodie bags!


Take a Peek at This Little Piggy

Oh my gosh! Wait until you see this stamp set, This Little Piggy. It is just so cute. I played with it all day yesterday. Two swaps were on my “To Do” list so I used this stamp set for both. I wanted to do one more card and “Hogs & Kisses” just called out to me.

Fun Things About This Little Piggy Card:

First, I got to use this adorable stamp set. You have to smile when you see this, right?

Next, I got to use my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. Always fun.

Third, I made this card using one of our Whisper White Note Cards. Guess what! In the new catalog, there will also be Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes. Happy Dance!

My final touch on this card was a little strip of ribbon. The new Berry Burst In–Color Woven Ribbon is great to work with. It’s light and pliable but not going to fall apart.

So, there are four things on this card that are new. Can you figure out what they are? I’ll tell you at the end of the blog post.

Papers and Inks and In-Color Ribbons, Oh My!

Well, the new catalog will be live soon and there are so many great new products. I want them all!  Ribbon is a particular weakness of mine and the new In-Color Ribbons are just the best. The colors are yummy and the ribbon itself is terrific. It’s 1/2″ wide and is woven. Very cool.
