September Goodies!

Venetian Romance EnvelopesVR FrontSept Goodies
I had to get some business related things. So as a result I placed an order with some new goodies! I have fallen in love with our new Envelope Punch Board! (133774 $19.95) I have a tendency to not make normal size cards and always had a hard time finding envelopes that would fit my cards. I no longer have that excuse. I played with the board quite a while to get a feel for it and finally decided to make envelopes for the Thank You cards I had made earlier. Previously, I would have just handed it to my customers without a envelope. I think now having an envelope for a card gives it a polished look. I used Venetian Romance DSP ($10.95 130144) and retired DSP to make them. So much  fun!
One of the things I got was  the chevron border punch (132154 $21.95  Holiday Catalog) I have been playing with the thought of getting into Project Life and finally got around to buying a kit and I think the Chevron punch will be a added bonus to some of the cards they have in the kit. The Chevron look seems to be the trend anyways and I don’t think you can go wrong with it. The first time I got to play with it was at my Up line’s quarterly meeting in August. I will be sure to share what I create with it!
I also got Naturals Designer Buttons ($4.95 127554) and the In Color Boutique Details ($8.95 130938) My goal is to get the suites that Stampin’ Up! suggests in the main catalog. I have a tendency to want it all or not certain of what to get so I figured going that route gives me a good base of supplies. I also was running out of Stampin’ Mist so I picked that up too. ($4.50 102394 2fl oz bottle)
So what will be in your order? Thank you for stopping by!

Mixed Bunch, World Map, Recover Rapidly

coastal cabana cardthank you cards for augustmixed bunchworld mapbaked brown sugar carddazzling details flowersrecover rapidlyI think it is safe to say I was a bit busy over Labor Day weekend. I hope you got the chance to be creative as you said good bye to Summer of 2013. I had some ladies over to papercraft aka scrapbook and card make with a potluck lunch and socializing thrown in.
I honestly had forgotten that I had the Mixed Bunch stamp set. W-128442 $27.95 C-125537 $21.95 which goes great with our Blossom punch. $16.95 125603 I had noticed the set when I was going thru my stamping stash to see what I could use to make thank you cards. Once I found the Mixed Bunch set I decided to play with it and use our new In Colors. (Cardstock and Pad Kit $29.95 131204) I owed a few thank you’s so that is what I used the stamp set on. I believe they came out pretty nice.  I did use the Venetian Romance DSP in the thank you cards. $10.95 130144 I was playing around with some of the flowers I punched out and used Dazzling Details for a different look. 124117 $2.50.
I cased the World Map from our catalog this year on page 23. W-$17.95 130342 C-$13.95 130345
Finally, as you may have heard our CEO was in a bad riding accident. The last picture is my attempt of a Get Well card for her. I really liked the SAB set that you were able to get so I went ahead and decided to use that set as well as some retired dsp and brads. I am sure she will get an outpour of cards and well wishes as we all love her and want her to recover rapidly.
Thank you for stopping by! I would love to hear what you have been creating lately!
