July has just flown by! I just got back from Stampin' Up's! Inspire, Create & Share convention. It was three non-stop days of crafting, swapping, and meeting new people. The highlight of the trip was seeing the new Handmade for the Holidays catalog! I think I need everything in it!
The holiday catalog will be unveiled on September 1. One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is we get to preview and order from it at least a month in advance. This means, I'll get to create new cards and projects to share with you. Would you like to be able to pre-order? Join my Stamping Bee team today!
So, while I wait for my holiday order to arrive, look what was waiting for me when I got home!
I've been waiting to make the Cottage Greeting Kit since I saw it in the 2015-2016 annual catalog. It reminds me of an English garden. The kit includes:
* 15 printed and scored card bases (5 each of 3 designs)
* 15 envelopes and silver foil liners
* Includes die-cut accents, foil accents, baker's twine, Stampin' Dimensionals, wood sheets, self-adhesive enamel dots, and sequins
And it coordinates with some of my favorite colors: Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, silver, and Tangerine Tango, vanilla, white
I'm going to make these tonight; I can hardly wait.
Be sure to check out new Weekly Deals posted today. Won't those metallic foil doilies be great for holiday crafting???
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Wishing you and yours a happy, safe, and free 4th of July.
