And now for something new...

I know I've been featuring many projects over the last little while that use soon-to-be-retired projects from Stampin' Up's retiring lists; however today I just HAVE to show a little something NEW from the upcoming Annual Catalogue.  This new catty launches June 1st (not July 1st, as in past years) and I am SOOOOOOO excited about it!  This past week, we demonstrators were allowed to order some Sneak Peek products to give us a sampling of what will be in the new book.  I, being the very impatient person I am, had to expedite my order so I would have it to play with this weekend.  It arrived on Thursday and I immediately cracked it open to revel in all the new stampin' goodness.  Here is the very first card I created with some of my new stuff...

Any-Occasion card featuring the Betsy's Blossoms and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets and Floral District DSP.

This card uses a bunch of new is a quick rundown:
Betsy's Blossoms stamp set - fun and funky images perfect for spring
Betsy's Blooms wheel - cute floral images that coordinate with the above stamp set
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set - cute little banners with sentiments that coordinate perfectly with the...
Bitty Banners Framelits!!!!!! - three dies that cut the cutest little banners...perfect for those of you who "can't hand-cut a straight banner to save your life" (quote from a customer at a recent event)
Floral District Designer Series Paper - great, bright, colours with bold designs that coordinate perfectly with the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set
Stitched 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon - isn't it amazing what a little bit of stitching can do for lowly grosgrain?!?

I have so many more new products that I haven't even touched...can't wait for some stampin' time later today!  I will be sure to post more sneak peeks in the coming days.  In the meantime, don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in my draw for a free month's subscription to Craft Project Central.  In case you missed my earlier post, you will receive one entry in the draw for each comment you leave, so comment often to increase your chances of winning.  You can comment on any post between May 1st and 8th.  I will post the winner's name on May 9th.  So get your typing fingers warmed up and comment away...and good luck! 


  1. I'm loving the bright colours! You know me, white on white...but I can be reformed! Looks like the itty bitty banners will be very useful for me. I'm looking forward to seeing more samples with the new goodies! WOOT!

    Not that I'm wishing the month away, but hurry up June 1! LOL

  2. SO Jealous, Leena! Wish I had expedited mine!! My new stuff won't be here until Thursday!!!
    I really like how you double punched the scalloped circle to make the starburst to match the paper/stamps!
