A couple business items to cover first! Guess what is coming in January? The NEW January through June Mini Catalog. Stampin’ Up! has revamped it’s catalog issuance so we get the Annual Catalog that covers May through April (specific dates will be given soon). Then we get two (2) “Mini Catalogs” ~ one January through June and August through December each covering 6 months. PLUS, the Sale-A-Bration is being split into two issues also! We will celebrate January through February and July through August. Shorter periods, but better items, I say!

Sneak Peek at Cover of January-June Mini Catalog

Sneak Peek at the Sale-A-Bration Cover! For every $50.00 you spend, you can choose a “FREE” Sale-A-Bration item. The more you spend, the more you can get FREE!

Those of you who are on my mailing list will get a copy of each probably mid to late December. The public will get to start ordering January 5th. Note your calendars you all! There are some stunning Suites and stamp sets. It is a great Mini Catalog!

What else is new? Well by now you know about Stampin’ Up!s new Cut & Emboss machine that has been out a few months. Now, they will be offering the MINI! It is so cute and lightweight so you can take it places. It handles the smaller dies that are available from Stampin’ Up! The 3-1/2″ (8.9 cm) platform works with many of Stampin’ Up!’s smaller dies and smaller embossing folders. List price will be $60.00. Coming January 5th.

Don’t forget December’s Paper Pumpkin! You have until December 10th to get the Kit, so do not delay!

Now on to some things that I have been doing. We unfortunately had to cancel our Sunday Craftin’ Gals Gathering in November. California is spiking and none of us wanted to risk it. But we are going to try and hold a very small group for our Annual Cookie Exchange that I do every year. It may be a small group, but it is going to be a safe group.

For my November project, I got my idea from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Wendy MacArthur. She hosted a card making class via Zoom last month for several of us who have become very close since On Stage in Orlando 2018. There are 7 of us and 5 of us were able to join in. Wendy had made up kits and sent them to us for 4 cards! I chose to CASE 2 of them for my class. Here they are:

Here are the “ingredients” for this card. No Silver ribbon, so dove into my stash. Also, I haven’t purchased the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine yet, so just used my Big Shot.

Here is card #2!

Here are the “ingredients” for this card…I did not have any of the Stampin’ Up! ribbon currently offered, so that is from my stash.

Well that is all for today! I will be posting a couple more things soon. Stay tuned! Until we see each other again…

Be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper.
