Woo hoo! It's Mojo Monday time and this week's Mojo inspiration sketch (MOJO120) was designed by fellow Mojomaker Teresa Kline. My card is loaded with products from the new Occasions Mini. I grabbed the new Scallop Trim Border Punch (a free Sale-A-Bration gift) for the Taken with Teal border.
The customer sales period for both the Occasions Mini Catalog and Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion (the biggest promotion of the year) starts tomorrow, Jan 5. Both catalogs are ready for your preview NOW on my right side bar. Do you have your wish list ready?
NEED THE NEW CATALOGS? If you prefer to curl up with a printed catalog (and don't
have a relationship with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator), please
click to email me your name and U.S. address. I'll send you copies of the Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogs pronto!
NEW!! In addition to limited edition Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Designer Paper and the new Scallop Trim Punch, you have the option to choose your free gift (one for every $50 you spend) from over 75 stamps sets from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog (listed on p. 11 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog). Three Little Words (used on today's card) is one of those free gift options. Love it!
Today's fresh and festive card is destined for my husband's Grandmother Rosella, ready to turn 101 next week. She has quite a sweet tooth, so I tucked some Cherry Cordial Kisses in a Fancy Favor Box.
- The Occasions Mini introduces two new shades of Corduroy Buttons, Real Red and Pretty in Pink. Real Red provides the perfect pop on my big flower
- One of my favorite tricks is to cut a sliver of matching cardstock, slip it through the button and carefully tie. Very custom and polished. Great for using scraps!
- "Thinking of you" in Real Red is tucked inside as the second half of the sentiment "Three little Words. . ."
- Flower Folds Bigz XL Die whips up delightful paper blooms in seconds. It can do the same for fabric, vinyl, leather or even thin tin.
