A Yummy Sneak Peak – Just in Time

Funny story – Whenever a new catalog is coming out, I get to swap with this wonderful, select group of stampers. We all end up with beautiful samples of the new products, and, yes, I always stress about my projects. No one's been kicked out of the group yet, but I sure don't want to be the first. So, last night I stayed up late, got up early this morning and skipped breakfast and lunch so I could have my swaps ready by the time we were to meet today. I finished with just minutes to spare, drove to our meeting place . . . and no one was there!

Our meeting is tomorrow.

You know what's ever more ridiculous? This isn't the first time I've done this.

So, I've snarfed down some donuts, taken a quick nap, and I still have time to share one of my swap projects with you before they get shared with the group.

Sale-a-bration is just days away, and this Yummy stamp set is one of the free sets you can earn with a $50 order beginning February 1. It's a really fun set to work with because the shape works so beautifully with the Top Note Bigz die. And, yes, Stampin' Up! now carries embossing plates, so I got to add those little bumps tomake this look like dotted swiss fabric. Those flower embellishments are made with the new Sweetest Stem Embosslets – so much fun. 

I saw thiscard on Splitcoast Stampers by Julie Alberda. Isn't it beautiful? I adjusted it a little, using the Sweet Always paper to make a card to hold and match with the lip balm I got at the Stampin' Up! convention last summer.

Stay tuned, we always make three projects, so I have more to share with you later. Since I have my swaps done early – I get to go play with Pillow Pup. She's visiting this weekend – and getting too big for her bed!

  2. Linda – I love that card. I can’t wait to get my Texture Plates!!! Wasn’t liking too many SAB sets, but now that I’ve seen your artwork, I’m changing my mind. I also have the Embosslit and have struggled with it, but once again, you have made it look great!! Back to the drawing board for me.

  3. This is absolutely beautiful
