WOW!!!! Thank you to each of you that commented and emailed me while I was away! Emma and I had a BLAST on cruise! It was so fantastic to spend time alone with Emma. You can count on LOTS of upcoming scrapbook pages of our Bermuda adventures. I have to also add that I am so fortunate to work with a company as fantastic as Stampin' Up! They sure know how to treat their ladies....we were spoiled rotten and I think everyone on the cruise would agree it was such a great time away! I'll show you some of the extra bonus incentives this week of earning the cruise!
The NEW In Colours which will be released in the new SU catalogue in August are: Pink Pirouette(a very soft and sweet pink....LOVE IT!), Riding Hood Red(PERFECT.....that shade of Red we're all missing!), Tangerine Tango(can you guess what my new favourite colour might just be???), Kiwi Kiss(YUMMMMM!), Bali Breeze(kindof halfway between Cool Carribean and Soft Sky....very nice) and Pacific Point(a less bright Brilliant Blue) These colours are UNBELIEVABLE! I always like some of the In Colours but these are FANTASTIC...my favourite yet and I have to wait 5 months for them!!!! These are also 4 new stamp sets that will be in the new catalogue. Click on the photo to enlarge them.
This is a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets upcoming from the future catalogue. It is called Owl Together Now. The actual stamp set isn't posted here but there are lots of samples with the stamp set on this board. We actually got this stamp set one night in our room (in a super cute bag I might add!!!) It was the set we used for our make and takes and I'll tease you with some samples this week!!!! It is a fantastic set for watercolouring as well! I appologize Emma's head is in the way of one of the cards but she was quite intrigued by the set!
This last picture has to be one of the highlights for me of the Stampin' Up! demonstrations. There is a general session one morning on the cruise (completely optional) but this is where they spill all the good news and share all the new stuff with us so of course I had to go. Well, one of the demonstrations was how to make this "MANLY card!!!" I forget the man's name that made the card but he was saying he always wanted to make a card he could be proud to send his friends so he progressed by showing us how to make this card....is it not the BEST???? He used the heat gun, the sanding blocks, brads and so many other things to make this cards from sheet metal.
This is quite pathetic BUT I loved it so much I've already ordered this set!!!!
I'll be back tomorrow with some more posts but wanted to share with you some of my Stampin' highlights. Thanks for stopping by!
