Ok, I’m totally half awake right now because I – not exactly intentionally – stayed up super late last night and was able to get in my next preorder from the upcoming 2016 Occasions catalog. Yay! I was super excited to be able to finally get some of the items I’ve been itching to get my hands on from the upcoming catalog to play with. I was lucky to be able to try out a number of items at the recent OnStage event run by Stampin’ Up in November – which is why I couldn’t wait to get my preorder in! So, hopefully that box of happiness will ship out today and I’ll have it Monday night to start playing with.
But in the meantime, I had been able to do a mini pre-preorder a couple weeks ago and finally started digging into my stuff and thought I would share a little with you! I even recorded a video of my unboxing to share what I got in that first order.
If you are reading this post in email, you can check out my Preorder Unboxing Video here.
But, at the time of the video, I didn’t have any samples to share with you. Well, I’m starting to fix that! Thankfully, my Mom ordered some different items than I did. So I had a chance to play a bit and make a sample from some of the It’s My Party Suite to share with you.
And I will say, I was super excited to share and so I haven’t taken the “nice” picture yet… so watch for a full blog post on this card with better lighting and more details… but until then… TA DA!
Are you ready to party now or what?! I used a new stamp set (Party Wishes) with the matching small punch pack (I totally did NOT cut out those candles by hand! Yay for coordinating punches! The punch set comes with a balloon, cupcake, and the candle.) I also used the new Confetti Embossing Folder… and YES! The oval in the middle is already there for you. So, no messing with shims and chipboard when you are embossing. I just used the debossed side and sponged lightly over the top to get this cool party effect.
Over the next month, I’ll be sharing a mix of my favorite projects using the current Holiday and annual catalog, along with sprinklings of sneak peek project ideas using the newest goodies coming in January. Yep, this stuff all goes live January 5th! If you have ordered with me in the last 6 months, you will be getting a copy of the catalog mailed to you later in December. If you haven’t ordered from me and don’t get catalogs from other demonstrators, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you on the list to be sent one as well!
