The new Holiday catalog is live today which means we can now order from it. There are so many wonderful new stamp sets and papers, and embellishments for all of the upcoming holidays. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Which is your favorite holiday? If you have not received a copy and would like one let me know. There is a link on the right sidebar of my blog to the catalog just below the annual catalog and you can also download it here:
FYI: Did you know that the links to the catalogs on the right sidebar also have a link to the supply lists? Remember when there was a list in the back of the catalog indicating the supplies used to make the samples? Well, they don’t do that anymore but that information can be found if you click on the supply list.
These two cards were made by my friend and upline, Catherine Harwood. You can see more of her awesome stamping on her blog here. The Halloween card suffered the ride home in my suitcase a bit but I wanted to show it to you anyway as it is a great use of the new chevron punch that is available beginning today in the Holiday catalog. I like how she also used the chevron embossing folder. I just ordered this punch so am anxious to use it.
This card showcases the Coordinations cardstock. It comes in many different colors and after you emboss it you sand off the top of the paper which uncovers a different color in the core of the paper. This embossing folder is a great choice to show the sanding effect.
I have two very tall palm trees in my front yard. They’ve been like a lighthouse for finding where I live. I have always told people to look for the two tall palms. I’m the only one on the street with two. When I got home from convention I noticed they were looking a little wilted. I called the tree service I use and told him my concerns that the trees were looking like something might be wrong with them. He asked if they looked like some big birds or something had flattened the fronds down since they all seemed to be hanging down. I told him it looked like an elephant had been sitting on the top! So he came by yesterday and the trees are dying and cannot be saved. They will both have to come down. He said he didn’t see any signs of disease and that it was possible that lightening might have gotten them. They are right next to each other. I’m sad to be loosing them but have already decided to plant a pretty crepe myrtle tree.
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by,
