Celebrate Friends - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends, and welcome to Canada for this stop on the Stampin' Up! International Artisan Design Team blog hop!  It is a VERY important and exciting day today - June 1st is New Year's Day in our crafty little world, and we are happy to be sharing the brand spankin' new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue! 

SQUEE!!! Are you as ecstatic as I am?  And more importantly - do you have your paper copy yet?!  If you don't, I have just a handful left and I'd be happy to send one your way!  Just drop me a line (blog comment, email, text, whatever!) and it's yours!  Please note that Catalogues are $10 to cover the cost of shipping, but they come with a coupon for $10 off your first order of $30 or more.  Yay!  (Canada only, please!) 

Without further adieu, however, I am THRILLED to be showcasing some products from this brand new product year!  

I spy with my little eye... two new stamp sets, one new ink colour, and one new ribbon - and this is just the tip of the iceberg, my friends!

This lovely little card features Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Just Add Text, two fabulous new stamp sets, coordinated with Lemon Lime Twist ink (and her old friends, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, and Old Olive) and a swag of the beautiful new 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon!

So this begs the question - which part of the catalogue is your favourite?  The stamps?  The colours?  Or the embellishments?  I know - it's so hard to choose!

The inside of this card needed a little bit of whimsy, so a few quick stamps from the flowers in Hello Gorgeous did just that.  Easy peasy!

I wanted this card to be bright, fresh, and new - all things I hope you'll be feeling when you browse this year's selection of fabulous Stampin' Up! products! 

My personal favourites are the Mini Chevron Ribbon and the Lemon Lime Twist ink - I can't get enough of either! 

And speaking of ribbons... 

If you love ribbon like I do, you might be looking at the catalogue and thinking "I want it all!"  Me too, friends... me too!  That's why I've created ribbon shares for this year!  You can purchase smaller cuts of ribbon in ALL of the colours available for a fraction of the price of buying full rolls!  This is ONLY available until June 10th, and supplies are VERY limited - please click here to sign up and hold your place!  (Only available to shipping address in Canada!)

Thank you so much for joining me - now let's hop across the world to Sylwia in Germany to see what she's sharing from the brand new catalogue today!  Eek!  

Thank you SO much for joining me today - I can't wait to kick off a fabulously crafty year with you!  Don't forget to check out the ribbon shares - and I will be posting a supply list for this card as soon as our online store is updated.  Have a fabulous day!

  4. You always blow me away with both your colour combos and card layouts Shannon. You make everything seem effortless....like every card just always comes together so perfectly.
