Final Reminder… today is the very last day to purchase items from the Holiday Catalog. There are a number of great products retiring from this Catalog.
Back to the Occasions Catalog, which starts tomorrow! One of my absolute favorite products is the Butterfly Beauty Thinlets die set. Today’s card uses the main butterfly die in this set. This is two dies – a top layer and a bottom layer. But each layer is just one piece, which makes an awesome focal point on the front of a card. I love that the butterflies fill up the entire card front. I definitely recommend using our adhesive sheets for adhering the top layer of the butterfly die to the bottom layer. To use the adhesive sheets, you’ll want to adhere them to the card stock and then die cut the butterflies. I was a little concerned that this would be tough to line up the two layers, but it was super easy. This card uses the new Gingham Gala pattern paper and matching Organdy ribbon. The Organdy ribbon is in the Sale-abration Catalog, which means it’s free with a $50 pre-tax/shipping Catalog purchase.
If you want perks like being able to get your products early, then you need to sign up to be a Demonstrator. But, don’t sign up today! You need to wait until January 3rd so you can take advantage of the Sale-abration rewards that are available. There are two options for signing up: Option 1 spend $99 and select $175 in products to come in your kit; Option 2 is spend $129 and select $175 in products for your kit and get that amazing new Craft & Carry Tote Bag! I was able to get one of these tote bags last month and it is so great. I love that it fits my paper trimmer and has a ton of pockets for so many things.
For those of you that want to be prepared when your January kit arrives, we have some inside information on what to expect for January. Next month’s kit will make 24 adorable Valentine’s treat packages. Plan to order extra kits if you want to make these for your kids classroom Valentine’s Treats. The coordinating colors are: Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Petal Pink, and Pool Party. And, the January kit will coordinate with the Animal Expedition Suite on pages 26 and 27 of our Annual Catalog. I’m so excited to see what they came up with!
If you order your Animal Expedition Suite early January, you’ll have it in plenty of time for the Paper Pumpkin kit to arrive.
Oh my goodness! Guess what’s now available. It’s a tote bag for your Stamparatus. And it is beautiful. There is plenty of pockets inside to hold your Stamparatus, some extra plates, and your grid paper. You are going to love this tote bag. This bag will be available now and it’s $29 (item #149695). If you’ve been waiting to purchase the Stamparatus until the tote was available, you can buy both as a bundle for $78 (item #151961).
