Fancy Friday - CASEing Occasions

Hello friends!  The week is (finally!) coming to an end, and so is April - that means we are back for another round of Fancy Friday!  The Fancy Friday Blog Hop is a group of friends that love sharing our creativity with fancy projects - how fitting!  Whether you're coming from my fancy friend Dani or starting here with me, welcome to the blog hop, get cozy, and enjoy the fabulous project we're sharing with you this month!  If you're new to my blog, hi!  I'm Shannon, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who loves poutine and candy and Dr. Mario.  Welcome!

As promised yesterday, I decided to use this month's Fancy Friday post to share the first sneak peek of Stampin' Up!'s 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue on my blog!  I've had some supplies for several weeks now and have been enjoying getting acquainted with them, and I know you're going to love them too.  We still have a while to wait - the catalogue launches to customers on June 1st! - but my Canadian friends who shop with me during April will receive a catalogue in the mail next month - make your wish list and check out the links at the bottom of this post to get shopping!

Our theme this month is CASEing the Occasions Catalogue.  CASEing is a crafter's favourite way to break out of a creativity slump or get the juices flowing.  It stands for Copy And Share Everything, and it's a fun way to copy or re-create projects and give them your own twist!

This is the card I came up with this month, copying a card from the Occasions Catalogue almost to a tee, but recreating it with fabulous brand-new and unreleased supplies!

Can you spot which card I used as my model?  It's on page 17, and it's a beauty.  

That little deer was replaced with an adorable chick from the upcoming stamp set called Pick A Pennant and capped off with a combination of two sentiments from the brand new Animal Outing stamp set.  These are just a teeny tiny sneak peek of the stamps included in these two adorable sets - you'll have to wait to see more!

Do you spot any other brand new items when we zoom in?

The faceted gems are gorgeous, aren't they?  And that colour!  It reminds me of a Grapefruit Grove... hint hint!  But my all-time favourite new embellishment is the GORGEOUS Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon - I see many rolls of that in my future!  This catalogue is a beauty - I know you'll want to get your hands on it pronto, so don't miss out on a free copy in May by shopping my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store! 

In the meantime, do you need some ideas for your wishlist?  The annual retiring list has been released, and items are going fast!

Most supplies on the retiring list are only available while supplies last, so make sure to get them before they're gone!  Check out the links below, make a shopping list, and head over to my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store to get shopping while selection is still available!


Let's hop over to my incredibly talented and always inspiring friend Cindy to see what magnificent project she's cooked up this month - Cindy never fails to take my breath away with her gorgeous creations!

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!
