It's always exciting when Stampin' Up! is getting ready to launch a new catalog. This year the new catalog becomes live for customers on June 1st; however, Stampin' Up! has released one product suite early to give us just a little taste of what's to come.
For customers: “Here is a sneak peek of the Eastern Palace Suite. Exclusive for a limited time are the Starter and Premier Bundles, designed for both the beginning and avid crafters.”
Any good envelope needs a matching card. #obviously.
With a tear in my eye, I began to cut into the blue foiled striped paper and make it into a card base... I wanted to hoard this sheet of paper and I just used a full third.
Squirrel! The tassles! How cute are those? Must. Include. On. Card.
By fussy cutting the vanilla and gold I was able to create... Ba-da-dummmm! CURTAINS!
curtains + tassles = love. #yesindeed
I finished off the card by heat embossing a thank you sentiment onto some card stock and placing it on the bottom right hand portion of the card. I actually folded the die cut around the card. I even impressed myself with that one.
By this time, I was playing with the stamps.
Losing them again.
Stamping onto watercolour paper. Giving up.
I was in full midst of creating a mandala. Mandalas are super trendy right now and I wanted in on the action. I was picturing a beautiful mandala with the colours washing together just perfectly.
Then the white embossing powder went crashing to the floor. Ink down. Arms up. I am done.
Then it came to me.
Don't over think. Take the pre-made Gold Eastern Vinyl Stickers and pluck them onto your Bullet Journal. Mandala Unite!
In the above layout, you can see that this is how I keep track of expenses and orders. I also keep track of 'In the Cat Cave', which for me is finished products such as banners, wedding products and cards rather than a Stampin' Up! customer order.
Ahem. I haven't been pinning lately, I know.
Below is another way to show your blog log, as well as a place for the projects you need to make in a particular month and any ideas that you need to write down.
