Christmas has come and gone, the Holiday Catalog retireretired yesterday, and Stampin' Up!'s Spring Catalog goes live today! All my current customers should have received a copy in the mail. If you haven't received yours, let me know and I'll make sure you get one.
If you're not on my list of customers yet, and would like a catalog, just email me with your name, address, and phone number, and I'll get one out to you. You can also view it online, and download it as a pdf file, but that's not nearly as satisfying as flipping through the real catalog–it's hard to drool on things you see on your computer screen!
If you want to get a look at the pdf version, use this link:
Just to entice you a bit, here's a handmade Valentine I put together to show off some of the new products:
Ooh, la la! What fun I had making this card! My inner girly girl comes out to play, and the Spring Catalog products keep her happy for hours!
The flower is made with the new Creped Filter Paper–it looks like tissue paper but is much stronger. Stampin' Up! says it has the strength of card stock, but I think filter paper is a better description. It comes in White, and you can stamp, dye, punch, die cut, or stich it. I sponged the layers of the flower in the card. You'll have a great time experimenting with the Creped Filter Paper.

If you like feminine projects, the Artisan Embellishments Kit will definitely inspire you. Yesterday's post showed the Mad Stampers Club projects, including the "over-the-top girly version," which featured several pieces from the Artisan Embellishments Kit.

(I'm sorry the picture is so poor, but that's all that was available. You can see a better photo of the kit items in the actual catalog.)
In today's sample, items from the kit include the Valentine Doily and the Primrose Petals Seam Binding.
Also from the new Spring Catalog is a beautiful Designer Builder Brad. You may remember the old Builder Brads from Stampin' Up!, but this one is so much more elegant. It coordinates with the Itty Bitties stamp set and the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack from the Annual Catalog. I used the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set, also from the main catalog. The possiblities are endless, and you'll have fun filling the inner circle with a stamped image. Designer Series Paper or whatever strikes your fancy.

One more item from the Spring Catalog on this card is the That's the Ticket stamp set. What a fun set, which coordinates with the Ticket Duo Punch (Annual Catalog). Tickets are in vogue in the world of paper crafting, and this set gives you options for any occasion.
Don't forget to email me if you need a FREE catalog. Stampin' Up!'s new Spring Catalog goes live today, so get ready to order the items that inspire you the most.
