Hey All!  I’m recovering from a tummy bug this week so I haven’t been crafting much.  We’ve had a beautiful snowfall here in central NC that has left everything coated in a marshmallow frosting.  It sure brightens my not-feeling-so-hot day.  This is the perfect time to share a few videos of some of the Wows from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  What’s a Wow?  Something that makes you go “Wow!” when you see it (followed shortly by a “Gotta have it”).

2018 Occasions Designer Series Paper

TheDesigner Series Paper (DSP) in this year’s Occasions Catalog is some of the BEST Stampin’ Up! DSP I have ever seen.  Not only are the designs fantastic but the quality of the paper is A-MAZ-ING.  I actually like to make 3D projects (bags, boxes etc) and mini albums more than cards.  The DSP this year is perfect for those types of projects and anything else you care to make.  You really need to see and feel it for yourself to truly appreciate it but this video does a good job of showing off the 2018 Occasions Catalog DSP.

Sunshine, Rainbows and Magical Creatures

Okay – so the first time I saw the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle I didn’t exactly go wow but I did covet those cloud dies.  Since then I have seen projects created that combine the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle with the Myths & Magic Suite.  They are fantastic!  Now I’m in the gotta-have-it mood.  Probably in my February Stampin’ Up! order.  If you want to see some of the wonderfully whimsical things you can create using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and/or the Myths & Magic Suite, search Pinterest or Google them.  Speaking of cloud dies…. I’m thinking these dies could be used for other things too.  Like whipped topping on an ice cream sunday bowl (the bowl could be made using the rainbow dies).  It must be in the snow influence.  I keep thinking about marshmallow and whipped toppings.  Anyway – the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set also has some really lovely sentiments in beautiful font.  Love the font.

Petal Passion Delight

The Petal Passion Suite is just packed with creative possibilities.  The DSP is specially designed to help your imagination run wild by allowing you to create with almost any kind of media you like – from crayons to water color.  My favorite – the images are designed to look like they have been hand painted.  No matter how you choose to use them – without added color or colored – they will look gorgeous.  The stamp and die set is huge.  The die set even includes extra decorative dies.  Just look at those cute little doodle-bobber embellies!  I cannot wait until my Petal Passion goodies arrive.  They were in my January order and it has been delayed due to the snow.  It should arrive today if Mr. Brown can make it through!

Coming Soon

Tutti-Frutti was the winner of the DSP poll a couple of weeks ago.  I’ll make a project with it and post it as soon as it arrives.  It too is in my snow-delayed January order so hang in there.  It’s so bright and sunshiney that I think it will provide a nice mid-winter warmup for us all.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great weekend!
