Sweet Garden Suite

Keeping in with sharing the new product videos, I just have to say I love this sweet garden suite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I know it was released last month, however, it is so great that I have to feature it again.  Below is a video from Stampin’ Up! to help show you more about this sweet garden suite (see how I did that?).  It not only features beautiful floral designs, but it has great sentiments to go along with them and the Dies are awesome. 

The Embossing Folder is one of my favorite things in this suite because of the 3D look you gain when using this product.  You can pick up this suite in my online store hereThe new catalog has so many wonderful new suites, you can view them all here.

Sweet Garden Suite

The new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog so much to offer and these new suites are just the beginning.  These videos are wonderful to let you see some of the new products in person (so to speak) and get a better idea of what they look like and how they work.    I’m so glad that Stampin’ Up! puts together these videos for us to share.  Stayed tuned, I still have more videos to release in the coming days.

Replacing SNAIL

Stampin’ Up! has a new seal product that is replacing SNAIL and just released with the new catalog.  I think you will love it.  It offers a little more adhesive than SNAIL and there are two options that are interchangeable in the case.  Have you seen it in the catalog?  How about a great visual to go with that?  Below is a great video from Stampin’ Up! featuring George to show you a little more about this great new product.  You may like a few of the differences from SNAIL.  

I hope you enjoyed the video and all this new adhesive has to offer.  I think it’s a great addition to any stamp room. 

Replacing SNAIL

                                                             Great new adhesive.

You can pick It up in my online store here.  I know many of you were disappointed with our SNAIL was discontinued but this is an upgrade from that and will be easier to use. 

The good news is that there are two different adhesives that you can use with the same case and simply change out as needed.  One is for simple projects and cards, the other has a bond that can be used for larger, or 3D projects.  I know for me, having the option of two different seals that fit into the same case is also a bonus.  I hope you enjoy this new seal product that is replacing SNAIL as much as I do.

New 3D Embossing Dies

If you have purchased any of the new 3D Embossing Dies, then you are going to love this video.  They are a different style from the Dynamic Folders so you need to adjust slightly when using them.  Stampin’ Up has put together a great video to give you a little information on how to use them.  The thickness of the folders is a little different so it will help to have a bit of training for using these folders.  With slight adjustments, you will be fine.  Take a look:

You can purchase any of our Dies from my online store here.   We have an extensive assortment of Dies which are used for multiple projects.  I love working with our dies and I love the new 3D Embossing Dies Stampin’ Up! has added to our collection. 

Hostess Exclusive

Take a look at this hostess exclusive set – Believe You Can.  The flowers are a great way to add so much color to the card.  Or, in the case of this card, create an interesting background.  The thank you banner is a nice touch right in the middle of the card to create the perfect focal point.
