New Stampin UP Catalog is live + super elegant card idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Yesterday the new Stampin’ UP! catalog was launched with new papers, inks, stamp sets, ribbons, embellishments and tools. As a demonstrator I get to order products a month before they launch and so if you scroll down a little you will see my first card – using the brand new Elegantly Said Bundle! If you click here it will take you to the link so you can check out the new catalog on line!

Also starting yesterday is a new joining offer, JOIN + as I said one of the perks of being a demonstrator is getting your hands on the new catalog and pre-ording goodies a month before launch – click here to see more details of the offer and benefits of becoming a member of my team.
