Being a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator has many benefits, but the opportunity to purchase with a 25% discount and purchase early are two of my favorite benefits. On January 4th, the beautiful Occasions catalog launched. Those of us who are demonstrators have had the opportunity to order products and start creating, for more than a month already.
One of the brightest spots in the middle of winter each year is the launch of the Stampin’ Up Spring Occasions Catalog. This year’s catalog is outstanding – with loads of stamps for Valentine’s, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, as well as Birthday Cards, Thank You Cards and tons of other creative ideas.
I have been observing the multitude of samples and discussion about the new stamp sets and have my observation of the three most popular stamp sets from this catalog.
Dragonfly Dreams on Page 26
This set has sparked lots of creativity with using many different techniques to create artistic backgrounds to offset this beautiful dragonfly. See my post on how to create a Faux Batik background to see one beautiful technique that I created.
It’s very exciting that there is a Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies set that makes it possible to quickly and easily cut out a very intricate dragonfly with just one pass through the Big Shot. This set is clearly the early leader for most popular.
Beautiful You on Page 24
This “watercolor sketch” style stamp set immediately caught my attention and lots of my fellow demonstrators. It is very tasteful and creative at the same time. It is appropriate that it is offered on the same page as the Watercolor Pencils as they are a wonderful match – and work well together to creatively color the three different women’s dresses.
Cool Treats on Page 32
Who doesn’t love ice cream? This bundle of stamps and framelits makes it easy to highlight our beautiful pastel colors that coordinate beautifully together. In the past, the challenge has always been to precisely cut out these types of details images – now with the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, that is a breeze.
