Apothecary Art and New Catalog Info

As you can see from the countdown clock in my sidebar, it is only 2 weeks till the new Annual Catalog goes live!  There are so many fun new stamps and tools and I think you will love the new streamlined style of the catalog.

The catalog is a little smaller and Stampin Up has made them much less expensive for us to purchase (and less expensive for you too!) So I am changing up the way I handle the catalog a little bit. I am excited to announce that this year I will be able to offer them free with a $25 purchase (one per customer) or for those who just want to purchase a catalog with no order, the catalog price will be $5. You will still get one free when you host a workshop. I’ll also be doing some random giveaways if you would like to earn one free that way. Also, for any customer who purchases at least $50 from me over this catalog year, you will earn next years catalog free as well, and will be able to pick it up as soon as they begin arriving next year. I love that this new system will allow me to give free catalogs to my current customers as we go forward. As always, owning the catalog will insure that you will receive the Holiday and Spring catalogs. These will be much larger than the previous mini catalogs, so they will have many more seasonal products in them and they will be current for a full 5 months. More time to get your favorite goodies!

Apothecary Art

I used a lot of different sets on this card. I really like the way many of our vintage sets work together, it makes it fairly easy to put together a collage type card. I started with the Parlor Prints background stamped in Crumb cake on Crumb cake card stock. Then I randomly stamped Established Elegance images in Soft Suede. They were placed so they would show behind the focal piece. I stamped and cut out the Apothecary Art image and added a layer of soft suede card stock which I cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits. Finally, I added a couple of strips of designer paper and did some distressing and sponging. These are really simple techniques, but combined with these beautiful images, it’s easy to get that vintage look. I am stocking up on this Beau Chateau paper, it’s a favorite and I hate to see it retire!

Thanks for stopping by!
