Hey Stampers! I can truly say it’s a beautiful day to love what you do here in north Dallas. I heard rolling thunder this morning as I was getting ready to leave the house, but the accompanying rain did not linger! I know in a few weeks when temperatures are in the 100’s, I’ll be begging for rain. HA! But I digress! I DO love what I do, especially around new catalog and new catalog pre-order time!
Today’s share is two cards made with the Love What You Do stamp set that is available now in one of our Stampin’ Up! bundles. The font used for the “it’s a beautiful day sentiment” is so pretty; easy flowing and graceful I think.
These cards showcase different elements from the Love What You Do Bundles, available now as a new catalog pre-order, only available in May! I love that Stampin’ Up! made some of the new products coming on June 1 available to customers as well as demonstrators. Click on any picture below the project information to order one of these bundles before they disappear. (note: the individual products in the bundles WILL be available, but the free gifts in each bundle will not). I’ve included project supplies and instructions below; enjoy!
PS-There are pages of products available to demonstrators to order now! If you’d like to start creating special projects before the new catalog comes out, click here to check it out. You can choose $125 in product plus you’ll get a full box of new catalogs to give to your friends. AND…there’s never any shipping on your starter kit!
