So far I’ve ordered the Painted Harvest and matching Leaf Punch bundle (146021 $33.25) on page 49.  

A MUST HAVE for me is the Half Full stamp set (144999 $22) on page 42.   It is the inspired stamp set made by my Up Line: Linda Bauwin.   She was a Million Sales Achiever in 2016 and Stampin’ Up! asked her to design her own stamp set.   Linda worked with the Stampin’ Up! artists creating this cute set.

Pocket Phrases - Workshop July 22, 2017

This group of cards used both stamp sets:  Floral Phrases and Colorful Seasons.   Plus we used the In-Color Bitty Bows, Glitter Enamel Dots, Ribbon and the NEW round punch called STARBURST (143717 $18).   I will definitely be using the Starburst punch a bunch because it also surrounds circle punches.     The workshop members chose from 2 out of 4 colors and made smaller individual envelopes (4"x4 1/2") for each.   The Fresh Florals Suite Designer Series Paper contains 40 sheets of color (144131 $22).   Making envelopes from Stampin's Up!'s Designer Series Paper is so easy on the Envelope Punch Board (133774 $20); the paper weight is perfect.

Happy as Today - Workshop July 22, 2017

I really enjoyed the July workshop.  We had a great group of people and had fun playing with the new 2017-19 In Colors from Stampin' Up!   The new color Lemon-Lime Twist makes the two berry colors and teal green pop.   I also like the Dapper Demin and Lemon-Lime Twist color combinations and will definitely  be combining them at the September workshop.

In My Thoughts - Workshop June 24, 2017

This is another page out of the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168 $10).   This style makes card making so easy because the decoration is done for you in the left corner, all you do is add the message.   I keep using the Stitched Shapes Framelits because I love the little stitching around the edges.   Makes message look good!
