2014 – 2015 Annual Catalog

It is here!!!!  I am so excited about the new Stampin’ Up! catalog!  I love the cover, what do you think???

I hope that you will browse through this new and fun catalog.  There is a fresh batch of new in-colors to check out, as well as a whole bunch of new designer series paper!  Oh, and the stamps!!!  There are so many cute, fun and beautiful stamps.  I can’t wait to get some of the new items so that I can create some fun projects to give out or new cards to mail.

There are some old favorites too.  My favorite owl builder punch (item #118074) is still in there, hmmm…. I wonder why that is my favorite!  My old favorite stamp set for birthdays, Sketched Birthday (item #130426), and my new favorite stamp set, Papillon Potpourri (item #123759), is also still available.

I hope you will take some time to look through the catalog and find some of your favorites.  I would love to hear about which items you love in the comments.  If you would like to place an order, you can always do so my clicking on the Stampin’ Up! logo under “Click to Shop Now” or click here!

One Year Anniversary!!!

My mom helping me fill out my paperwork to become an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

My mom helping me fill out my paperwork to become an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

One year ago today, I filled out my paperwork at the Leadership Convention in Orlando, Florida to become an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator under my mom, Helene (who runs Helene’s Papercrafting!)  It was so much fun and very exciting to get to attend and be a part of the Leadership Convention that I had to be apart of Stampin’ Up! and I didn’t want to miss a minute more of the fun.

Since last January, I got to be apart of lots of great events that I helped my mom put on.  We attended a Crop-a-Thon, had a Sale-a-bration/Rachel’s a Demonstrator Party, had a fundraising event, held many classes and best of all… I was able to attend my very first Stampin’ Up! Convention!

It has been such an amazing, fun year and I don’t regret a minute of it.  I am so excited to see what my second year brings.  Thank you so much to my mom, who encouraged me to sign up and start Look Whoo’s Stampin’!

Paper pumkpin is not just for women!  So I already posted about my October paper pumpkin but I thought you might be interested to know that my husband is also subscribing to paper pumpkin.  My husband, Kacy, likes to paper craft and often will join in when I am making a project.  I think his project came out terrific!

October Paper Pumpkin

Memo Board

Memo Board

Paper pumpkin kits aren’t always cards… this month it was a memo board!  It’s extremely cute and very useful!  When I was done creating mine I was so excited I started making my grocery list and forgot to take a picture of my project!  The colors in this project are calypso coral, gumball green and whisper white.  My favorite color is pink and my sister’s is green so I really thought that putting calypso coral and gumball green so nice.

Awesome… THANKS!

Awesome Thanks!

Recently I have had to make a couple of thank you cards.  I designed this card and decided to mix it up by changing the colors the second time I made it.  The Eastern Elegance Designer Series paper is so beautiful I had a hard time choosing which paper to use.  By making the second card a different color scheme I was able to use more of the paper and it made it an easier decision.  I love how both cards came out!  I also made matching envelope liners for both cards.  I was very excited to make the liners because it was the first time I got to use the envelope liner framelits die!  I think that both of the recipients of these cards will really appreciate them and see how grateful I am.  To make these projects I used the following items: Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (131344-clear, 131341-wood); Envelope Liners Framelits Dies (132172); Chalk Talk Framelits (129983); Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (117335); Clear Embossing Powder (109130); Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (130131); Whisper White Cardstock (100730); Smoky Slate Cardstock (131202); Medium Envelopes – Whisper White (107301); Top Card only: Coastal Cabana Ink (131175) & Coastal Cabana Cardstock (131297) and Bottom Card only: Metallic Encore Pad – Silver (132142) & Crushed Curry Cardstock (131199)
