Flourishing Phrases by Stampin'UP Carried Over to the Brand New Catalog!

I really like the sentiments in the "Flourishing Phrases" Stamp Set
The font is both printed and scrolled....check it out on pg. 49 of the current Annual Catalog.
If you do not have this set and matching Flourish Thinlits, you have time during another catalog year.

Do you need your very own copy of the brand new Stampin'UP Annual Catalog?
Please contact me for one if you do not have a demonstrator you currently use.
I would appreciate the chance to serve you with all your paper crafting needs.

Thank you- Lori Helvick

"One Wild Ride" Stamp Set by Stampin'UP Cruising on back in the Brand New Catalog!!

I'm very happy to see this stamp set returning for another catalog year.
"One Wild Ride" is a great masculine set for all those motorcycle fans you need to send cards to.

The Sun Is Setting on this Years' Occasions Catalog......take a last look at "Perfect Mix"

This card swap was made by Kelly Irish of Peoria, IL
She used the stamp set called "Perfect Mix" from the Occasions Catalog.
This set will NOT be in the new Annual Catalog.

I believe this card was made by my friend and downline Bonnie Alexander.
From the Occasions Catalog (pg. 51) she used the Falling In Love paper & the Very Vanilla Ribbon.
Bonnie also used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits which I'm happy to report, made it to the new catty!!


If you have any questions about either of my friends' creations, please let me know.
I appreciate you visiting my blog and please come back again soon....Lori
