Simple Saturday Stampin’ Up! Catalog Peeks

Stampin up demonstrator blog catalog framelits fancy fan big shot texture folders
I almost didn’t have a card to post today.  I had a long day and my bed was calling out to me.  However, once I tucked myself in and started looking at my new 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, I was inspired to the point of needing to get back up and put together this clean and simple card using a bunch of new goodies from the “catty” (available June 1).  Has paper crafting insomnia ever happened to you?

MY FREE & FAST NEW CATALOG OFFER ENDS 5/15:  The new catalogs will be ready to ship to my customers starting next week.  Woo hoo!  Learn how you can get your copy FREE & FAST with a $50 on-line product order through me!


  • The sentiment is from a classy, new set called World Treasures.  I love how it coordinates with the Apothecary Accents Framelits.  Quick and clean.  Both the stamp set and Framelits will be available June 1.

  • Two new Stampin’ Up! In Colors got some time on the runway:  Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit.  See my In Color Comparison samples.
  • The trendy wood-like buttons are the perfect touch.  Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots (they dropped the word “Mini” in the new catalog) keep them neatly in place.

  • Finally, I LOVE the crisp texture created by the new Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  COOL THING:  The new releases of Stampin’ Up! embossing folders are a larger size (4 1/4″ x 6 3/8″).
