Have you seen it?

This new Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up is amazing… by far the best I’ve ever seen! I had to look through it like 10 times before I saw everything — it’s bigger and full, full, full of great products and ideas. What are you waiting for? Go check it out here now! 🙂 You can start buying goodies from this baby today — it’s a month earlier than SU normally releases their holiday catalog so you can get a head start on those great crafting projects you have planned for the holidays! Another great tid-bit of info for today is that the new MDS2 is launching! If you are not familiar with our digital paper crafting program, My Digital Studio, now is a great time to become familiar with it. It has always been great for make digital cards, scrapbook pages, photo books, banners and so much more — but now you can use it for canvases! That’s really exciting to me… it also has over 75 other great new features including being able to design in two-page spreads, use multiple colors on a stamp brush, recolor an existing embellishment, recolor a photo, text shaping and so much more!

I decided to post one of my recent cards for you today. I’ve been making lots of thank you cards lately (not making much progress in getting them out, however). This is one of my favorites. It uses the new Everything Eleanor stamp set from the 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog. I also used a bunch of new goodies, too, like the Patio Party Designer Series Paper, Apothecary Accents Framelits and one of my favorite new sentiment sets called, Sweet Essentials. Lots and lots of layers on this one. This is
