Hey everyone! What a day this has been! In case you hadn’t heard, today was the launch for the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs, which is always fun in itself, but….Stampin’ Up!’s website crashed due to some kind of technical issues. Nothing to do with an overload of everyone shopping, but some kind internal server issues. Wow, talk about stressful!! I think the computers finally came back up around 11 or so, and I’m sure the IT guys at the home office were pulling out their hair!! lol Then I was planning on having this post up to announce the launch, but yes, stuff happens. And then I realized that I haven’t gotten my January Projects to Go ready yet! Arghhhh!!! So I will be working on that this weekend. I think the holidays really messed up my brain. ūüėČ

So back to our catalog launch. Have you checked out the catalogs? Soooooo many cute items that I absolutely love!!! This stamp set and designer series paper are two of them! When they showed this stamp set, Beautiful You, at Onstage I knew this was going to be a must have!!! It is a really versatile set too with the different sentiments. This is going to be one of those sets that I will keep even after it retires. And that paper? It is to die for!! It’s called Falling in Love, and that is exactly what happens to you when you see it in person.

If you haven’t had a chance to look through the catalog yet, you can check it out¬†here¬†and see all the wonderful items. I’m warning you, get your pen ready to start filling out your wish list! Sale-a-bration is really the best time to shop. Remember, when you purchase $50.00 in product you will get a free item from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. You can see those goodies¬†here. Then when you host a qualifying party you get an extra $25.00 in product and the best deal out there is when you join the Stampin’ Up! family during Sale-a-bration. Not only do you get to purchase $125.00 worth of product for $99.00 plus tax and FREE shipping, you also get to choose 2 extra stamp sets for FREE!! Depending on which two sets you choose, that can be almost another $100 in FREE products! How can you pass that up? If you want to take advantage of this spectacular deal, just head over¬†here¬†to complete your order and join my team.

So what do you think of my card? Elegant, right? ¬†And so simple to make! Just stamp the image on the paper, cut out the frames, add some vellum, pearls and the sentiment and you’re done! Quick, easy, and stunning. My kind of card! Have a great evening and I thank you for stopping by!
