It’s the most wonderful time of the year……..

The Stampin’Up! Year, that is.

The new Occasions catalog has just been released today and it is chock full of so many great new products to fuel your creativity. It has kits, versatile stamps, glorious papers and more!

As an added bonus, it is also Sale-A-Bration!!! It is the one time during the year that you will get to choose one specialty item for every $50 you spend. These are full size stamp sets, papers and more. And, this is the only way to acquire these sets. They will never be sold by Stampin’Up! You can only earn them as a bonus with a purchase.

Over the next few days, I will be posting samples from the new Occasions catalog as well as some samples made with my free Sale-A-Bration items.

To start off:

This is the bulletin board in my stamp room. It has no samples yet, but take a good look at the beautiful butterflies! They are new framelits for the Big Shot. The banner above is made with the same butterflies along with flowers punched from the new punch all layered onto the Banner Kit that is in the Big Catalog.

This is a wall display using the same items. There is a beautifully embossed paper that you can choose for free from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that these butterflies were made from. I will add a tutorial tomorrow on how to “emboss resist” the white paper.

This is one of my favorite new stamps. It is called “Something Lacy”. I used vellum and stamped the image with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. It us very elegant in person. The greeting is from the new stamp set called Butterfly Basics.

This silly little card is made with a new set from the new Occasions catalog as well. It is called Cheerful Critters. The wording is from a Free Sale-A-Bration stamp (Best Day Ever) that you can choose when you spend $50.
