May The 4th Be With You!

Hey Stampers and other crafty friends! May The 4th Be With You! Where are my Star Wars peeps out there? I clearly remember when the first Star Wars movie came out, which was actually the 4th movie in the whole series. I always thought it was kind of funny to start in the middle.

Dave and I were living in California and I remember waiting in line to see this on “premiere” night…fun times! As our son grew older he became obsessed with all of the movies, our daughter not so much!

Now, if Star Wars isn’t your jam, never fear. I have an even better reason to say May The 4th Be With You! The brand new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog is LIVE today and it is full of amazing goodness!

If you are one of my regular customers, you should have already received this catalog from me. It is filled with “to die for” samples and new products! If you haven’t received one, don’t already shop with another Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator, I would love to earn your business and the first step is getting you a catalog. Email me and we’ll get that handled right away.

My project for today uses one of my favorite new stamp sets, Flowers of Friendship (it even has a coordinating punch), my favorite new In Color, Fresh Freesia, and new Designer Series Paper, Hand-Penned. I’ve listed all the supplies including ordering numbers, cutting dimensions, and full instructions after the photo.
