Stampin’ Up! Some Make-and-Take 2018 Occasions Sneak Peeks

Good mornin’, y’all!  It’s Sunday and I’m on my way home!!  Or will be soon, depending on where you’re reading this!  Here’s what it looked like out my hotel window yesterday once I’d made it to SLC.

A pretty vast change from the day before…but look how pretty the sun is shining thru the clouds!  I will miss the high desert weather, there’s no doubt!

So – make note of this, y’all!  I’m sorry to disappoint, but there’s no way I can get home today, unpack and have everything ready to do a FB Live Video this evening.  I mean, I’m good, but…that’d just be biting off more than I can chew. 🙁  So…we’ll reconvene next Sunday night!

I figured I’d share a couple of the make-and-takes that we did at OnStage – they’ll give you another taste of what’s coming in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

The first goody is from the Petal Passion Suite – using the Petal Passion stamp set…  

We stamped the little bird in Calypso Coral on a Whisper White Circle then popped it over some of the Petal Passion DSP – that we’d added a little Calypso Coral color to with a Blender Pen.  Check out the new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon underneath!

Our next make-and-take used the Bubble Over stamp set and bundled Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  

Check out the DSP…that’s from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – and will be available FREE with a $50 purchase.  I love that the SAB goodies – so many of them! – coordinate with sets in the Occasions Catalog.

We decorated one of the new Silver Mini Gable Boxes – which is part of the Sweet Soiree Suite!  This is a cake-decorator’s dream suite – and perfect for wedding, engagement, or birthday celebrations.  It includes – wait for it! – new Embossing Paste in Shimmery White and Silver!  With a new set of Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks to help you “decorate” your card cakes!

Now – I didn’t finish my make-and-take all the way, cuz I need to get it home.  But…here’s what it WILL look like!  I love these little treat/gift holders!  

It’s embellished with Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP and gorgeous new Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon (it’s edged in Silver!). And, with the advent of Dark Pink, Silver and White Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (think Easter basket grass – but not green!) to put inside to cradle and cushion your treats…you’re going to want bunches of these!

At our last “station” we used the new Tutti Frutti Suite to make a couple of adorable little tags.  We stamped and punched some fruit – using the Fruit Basket stamp set and bundled Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack…

…added a little paper from the Tutti Frutti DSP Stack (this is a 6″x6″ pack)…

…and made these!

Seriously cute set, y’all!

Okay – that’s enough to whet yer appetite for this wonderful new catalog, yes?

I’ll be back tomorrow.  Cleaner (from Finn-Lickings) and ready to rock and roll!  And – guess what?  Got another pretty sneak peek for you…

    Safe Travel Home Mary, enjoy your special hello from Finn.

    High desert has its appeal o.k. not the least of which is for it to be in the rear view mirror headed home.
    Finn looks every bit as eager as you are. Wonder if he doesn’t know in his Aussie bones.
    Safe travel!!!

  3. Thanks for sharing the sneak peeks! Safe travels home! We’ll see you back on the other side! 😉

  4. The mountain are truly breathtaking but I’m glad it’s the last you’ll see of snow for awhile! I know you are thrilled to be flying into ATL. All your fans will miss you tonight but you made a wise decision. Thanks for the sneak peek…I like what I see!

    Safe travels Mary.
    Have a happy reunion with Finn, Wayne, the kitties and ponies. Enjoy the evening.

    Yay for your getting home and pray it was an uneventful trip! And that your luggage met weight! Thanks for sharing the sneak peaks. Enjoy the hugs and kisses from Finn and Wayne. Glad to have you back on the east coast!

    • Yep, suitcases in the weight limit – thanks to a friend’s handheld luggage scale (which I’ve now ordered!). Easy trip home and lots of hugs and kisses! Thanks, Susan! 🙂

    Have a safe trip home, Mary. And may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving among your loved ones!
