A Bella Gift For You

 Stampin up bella gift certificate

Monday, August 11th is the big day . . . Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog will be available on-line at approximately 1:00 CST and the customer ordering period begins.  I'll be at the starting blocks to post the link to the on-line catalog, provide full details on some unprecedented Stampin' Up! promotions and ready to place your order here.  Have questions on the new catalog?  Please feel free to hit my Live Help button (top left corner of this blog, above my picture) and chat with me in real time.  I plan to be available much of the day.

PLUS, it appears that my blog will hit my 100,000th visitor mark (the same day as the catalog release . . . wildly coincidental).  To celebrate, stay tuned for my Blog Candy Giveaway (Clue #2:  Think "In Colors").  Please find my checklist of all Stampin' Up! events and promos at the end of this post under "Coming Soon."

With the excitement of the new catalog, how about giving the perfect gift to those who share your passion for stamping?  I offer Stampin' Up! gift certificates (redeemable through me) which include a very special card I design specially for the recipient.

Today's project was created for Renate, soon to be the lucky recipient of a Stampin' Pretty birthday gift certificate from Karren.  Happy Birthday, Renate!  I thought a Criss Cross card (with some jazzy embellishments) would make a lovely pocket for a gift certificate.   For step by step instructions, check out Beate's Criss Cross Tutorial.  The Designer Paper used is Stampin' Up!'s Bella Rose, one of over 30 fresh, new designer papers available in the Fall/Winter catalog starting Aug. 11!

    Love this! I {heart} the new Bella Rose DP and the new in-colors. Who wouldn’t be excited to receive a SU gift certificate especially in this gorgeous package?

  2. Beautiful card! I bought a round tab punch a month ago and just used it the other day to create labels for my Inspiration book. I love the criss cross card technique and have sadly neglected it. Thanks for bringing it back to the forefront of my mind. 🙂 Hmm.. gift certificates? I’ll have to tell hubby about that. 🙂

  3. WOW, Mary! Can’t believe the BIG day is here! Been loving all the sneak peaks and this card is another winner! Great deals on the die-cut stamps, too. Can’t wait to view them all! Hugs, Monica

  4. What a sweet card!:) The first time I saw the card you made using “Kind Thoughts” I just new it was another ‘must have.’ I’ve set my watch alarm for 1:00 CST for the BIG event. I wouldn’t want to be late for this party!:)

  5. Beautiful gift certificate holder, Mary! I can’t wait for the new catalog to begin!!
    And I’m visitor #99532…not long until 100,000 =)

  6. I’m loving this card, Love the DP and the colors.
