New Catalog Open House!

My New Catalog Open House was yesterday, and I was pleased that, despite the busy time of year, so many friends were able to come join me for it!  Yay!  Thanks so much!!!  

In case you weren't able to be here (-- or in case you came, but had too much fun creating your makes and takes and visiting to be able to see the card samples on display!), here are some photos of the displays:

The first board has my newest samples, and the next board has samples with past Paper Pumpkin kits and other continuing favorites, including the awesome Watercolor Wishes kit:

Here's a display with more samples and new products:

Here's a candid of friends busily creating their make and take cards:

And, here are the two samples I created for the make and takes:

This one uses the new Pop of Paradise stamp set, with the flamingo stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the greeting in Dapper Denim.  I used the new Layering Squares framelits to die cut the piece for the flamingo and the frame behind it.  The flower is cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets dies (available in a bundle & save 10% with the Swirly Bird Stamp Set).   In the center of the flower is a Perfect Accent. The designer paper is from the Affectionately Yours pack, and so is the Washi tape above it.

The second make and take is a mini note card (measuring 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" -- perfect size for a quick note with a gift!) with a Sweet Sugarplum base.  We stamped the Whisper White layer on top of it using the Swirly Bird stamp set, and Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Peekaboo Peach, Cucumber Crush, and though my sample is done with Cucumber Crush, I also had Emerald Envy available to use for the greeting and leaves.  The greeting is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, and we used a Bow Paper clip embellishment to finish off the card.

If you weren't able to make it to the open house, and would like a new catalog, please let me know!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
