A Change of Season
Well, hellooo summer! Living in a tourist destination, summer tends to announce itself with congested roads and a lack of parking at the beach. For me that gives me the perfect excuse to stay home and craft! Or, as it happens, put together furniture.
My daughter turns 3 on the 6th, and her big present from us and both sets of grandparents is a new bed, dresser, bookshelf and desk. And seeing how I am the one who stays home, I'm responsible for building all of it. Between breaking down her old bed, moving furniture and building, I'm three days deep on this project and sporting a pretty painful blister in the center of my palm. (Soft wood and power tools don't mix, so I'm doing it all by hand)
I'm looking forward to finishing up and getting ready for my Catalog Launch Party on the 10th!
The Stampin' Up!® 2017-2018 Annual Catalog
It's finally here! June 1st means that the new catalog is live for EVERYONE! How excited are you to get your hands on the new products? A few of my favorites are pictured below, but I'd love to hear what you're most looking forward to!
The catalog release means I'm having an Open House to celebrate! I will have samples up of all of the new Designer Papers, the new embellishments and some stamp sets. I plan to do display boards for 3 product suites; Color Theory (including the new Memories & More pack!), Foil Frenzy and Pick a Pattern (which unexpectedly became my FAVORITE).

I hope you've enjoyed the trip down the rabbit hole. Stop by the comments and let me know where you find your inspiration!
Later in the month (and every month thereafter) I'll be hosting a Paper Pumpkin meetup. If you haven't heard of it yet, Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up!®'s monthly subscription box. Each month is a kit with everything you need to create up to 12 projects, from cards to favor bags/boxes and from time to time a mini album!
The meetup is going to be a fun way to craft together and share ideas for alternate projects. If you're a new subscriber this month (before June 10th) you will receive an introductory offer of 25% off your first 3 months! That's just $14.99 a month for amazing DIY goodness!
Well that's all I have for you today. I hope you'll keep checking back as the month goes on for new cards, project ideas and tutorials. I'm so excited to share all of the new products and some fun ways to use them! I'd love to hear what you've got on tap this month.
