Make a Positive Difference - In This World

Hello friends, and happy new year!  I can't believe 2018 has arrived already!

I enjoyed some wonderful time off with my family over the holidays - it was so lovely to have all three of us home off work for a full 10 days!  Unfortunately, Calgary was in a record-breakingly-cold deep freeze so we didn't get to do some of the wonderful activities we had planned, but we did have a lot of cozy time watching movies, we did some baking, we ate a lot, and we celebrated Christmas and New Year's Eve with friends.  It was wonderful.

On January 3rd, the 2018 Occasions Catalogue from Stampin' Up! will be launching - as I got back to the grind last night, I got catalogues packaged up to send to my customers, so those will be arriving shortly - if you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like a catalogue, please feel free to drop me a line!

Before all of these BEAUTIFUL new products launch - and I've got tons of samples to share as well as a couple of online project packages coming up! - I wanted to bring back some favourites from the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  As we roll into the second half of the year, we'll have a lot of new stuff coming, but there's always room for the old!    

This card - or some version of it - came to me during a sleepless night a few weeks ago.  While I laid in bed listening to my husband snore, I had this flash of gold embossing, Bermuda Bay, and a chair.  I flipped on my lamp and made a quick sketch and a couple of notes on a post-it note.  The next day, I barely understood what I was trying write, but thankfully, a bit of the vision was still there!  I traded out the gold for copper and the layout rotated 90 degrees, but in the end, I was quite happy with what I landed on.  It's messy and bright and a bit regal.  Fun, right?!

Now that 2017 is over, I'm finished my second year with the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team - it was so strange to NOT use the Artisan logo on this card!  You'll be seeing more of my name and my face associated with CrushOnColour - both here and on my Facebook Page, CrushOnColour on Facebook.  If this is your first time, hello and welcome!  If you're an old friend, thanks for sticking by!  I can't wait to keep sharing my love of papercrafting with you.  

Speaking of the new year, a new month brings a new host special! With the new Occasions Catalogue AND Sale-A-Bration being released this month, I thought I'd sweeten the pot of the bonus you'll receive from Sale-A-Bration with a $60 order... 

January Host Special:  During the month of January 2018, orders of $60+ retail (before shipping and tax) from my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store will receive a sampler pack of products from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  Must use host code 9QSNAB2J to redeem this offer!
