NEW STAMPS, A SALE, AND MORE SNEAK PEEKS

Hi all!! Well, I made a card with one of the new sets that will be available in the catty called Eastern Eclectics - and it is FABULOUS!!! I totally love this set, it is beautiful! And, it goes so well with that new yummy dp Bella Rose - aaaahhhh, just adore this paper! So, here is my sample using this new set (yep, we got this one at Convention!) - aren't the flowers gorgeous!! And, I did not even use them all!! The sentiment is actually from my Fresh Cuts set - I love the script on these and reach for them a lot because of this. So, I will leave you with a recipe for this one! Oooooh, I am so excited about these new sets! And, guess what?? Starting on August 11th, there will be a sale - yep, a sale, on never before sold sets AND THIS SET IS INCLUDED - WHOOHOO!!! Yep, SU! is offering a 15% discount on selected sets with no minimum purchase required! I will provide the link once you are able to access the catty but if you like this set, remember to get it while it is on sale!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Whisper White card stock, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
Inks - Rose Rd, Old Olive, Regal Rose Stampin' Write Markers, Rose Red, Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pads
Stamp Sets - Fresh Cuts (sentiment), Eastern Eclectic(available August 11th)
Accessories - Small and Large Oval Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Old Olive ribbon, Green square rhinestone, Old Olive brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mat Stack and Paper Piercer

And, here are some more pics from Convention...Remember I told you about the fabulous new dies and Big Shot that Stampin' Up! is now going to have? Check out these gifts Shelli made for her daughter's upcoming baby shower - EVERYTHING is made using our new exclusive dies - whoohoo!! Aren't they beautiful??!!! The details on these are amazing, I just love all the things you can create with these dies! She made tags, flowers, a pacifier holder, a little gift basket, and all kinds of
on that gorgeous diaper cake. And, then we got to see a really cool project using the Decor Elements - on a frame!! Wouldn't this look great on your wall? I just fell in love with this one! Both the words and the big swirly designs are from Decor Elements, and then you just add some fabulous Dp (sneak peek!) and a photo and you are done. This sure would make a wonderful gift, especially with the holidays coming up! And, here is a peek at another new stamp set featuring this darling little bear and "skeeters" - LOL! This set is sooo going to be mine, it is too too cute! Lots you can do with this one too! Lastly, I wanted to share this gorgeous bag made out of some of the new designer series paper that is going to be in the new catty - isn't it just beautiful!! I totally love it and the rest of it is just as gorgeous!!! Oooh, this is the best catalog yet - and I am not kidding!! I hope you liked my sneak peeks, I will share another project tomorrow using another new set for Tamara's sketch challenge! So, until then -have a fabulous day!

Hey Alex! Awesome card!! Good for you for putting your new set to good use already! You asked me about Leadership, but I don't know yet. The timing is hard to ask for, since I'll just be returning to school after 2 weeks off for Christmas vacation! lol! But I may still do it! I *LOVE* Leaderships and Orlando is great!
