for the release of the Spring Mini Catalogue, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you are in for a treat! There are lots and lots of gorgeous new goodies to be had, heaps of fantastic stamp sets and lots of new accessories, including some new papers. If you would like one of the mini catalogues, feel free to contact me with your postal details and I will send one out to you. But remember, you can’t order from it until the 1st August 2009.
However, those of us who are lucky enough to be Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are able to pre-order the products so I have been able to have a play and thought I would give you a bit of a sneak peek. I have made a few different things and will show you some of them over the next week or so. But you won’t get to see it all, I will be saving some for my mini catalogue launch party on the 8th August. Make sure you contact me to book in for that one, it is a good way for you to try out some of the new stamps and accessories before you buy.
So, the first one is a scrap page. It is a CASE (copy and share exactly) – except this one is not exactly the same (which seems to happen most of the time when I case something)…. anyway, it started out being a CASE of the scrap page on Page 4 of the mini catalogue, and uses some of the new Designer Series Paper and also the new stamp set called “Great Friend”.
The photos are of our beautiful cat Shadow, who passed away nearly 12 months ago, and who we miss heaps! She was a sweet natured girl, who purred all the time and loved our company as much as we loved hers. You may recognise her, she has pride of place on the home page of this blog! 🙂 Doing some scrapbooking of the photos of Shadow has been quite difficult and emotional for us all, but therapeutic in a way, and to me, that is exactly what scrapbooking is all about. It helps us to evaluate and deal with the bad and the good that happens in our every day lives, helping us to put those memories down on paper, rather than hiding them away in the corners of our own minds.
