On page 21 of the Holiday Catalogue is the Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack. In this pack are 50 printed cards that are 3" x 4" and 4" x 6", sized perfectly to fit the Memories & More Photo Pocket Pages and memory keeping product range. These cards are also sized perfectly to fit the pre-cut card bases in the Santa's Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes too!

Here's another card that uses the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the same gorgeous colours as the monochromatic, whimsical thank you cards. This time I used Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather ink to create a lovely bokeh background and stamped the dandelion images as a silhouette over the top. Bokeh, also known as "Boke", is a photography term that describes the way the camera lens renders out-of-focus points of light, leaving a visually appealing image with soft background highlights.

If you're anything like me, whenever a new Stampin' Up! catalogue comes out you make a wish list that is longer than your arm! When the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue was released back in June, the Dandelion Wishes stamp set was on the top of the list. It is so elegant and whimsical, and versatile for many occasions.

In New Zealand, we generally don't celebrate the traditional US holidays of Halloween or Thanksgiving. However, I challenge you to take a look at these sections in the new Holiday Catalogue as there are some awesome products in there that can be used for other holidays and all year-round. Take the sweet Takeout Thinlits Dies and coordinating Takeout Treats stamp set, which would make fabulous favours for weddings or for dressing your Christmas table.

I am inspired by the colours in the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper - it has a vintage-vibe, but with fresh, new colours. This Christmas card may not have any of that designer paper, but the colours are drawn from it... Sahara Sand, Merry Merlot, and copper. I've combined these gorgeous colours with one of my favourite bundles in the Holiday Catalogue, the Merry Christmas To All stamp set and coordinating Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies.

What a great day last Friday was! I loved getting together with everyone and celebrating the launch of the new 2018 Holiday Catalogue. Even though I got sick and I had to postpone the Holiday Catalogue Launch Party by a week, most people were still able to attend and want to thank you for your flexibility. So, what did we get up to? All guests received a pack of goodies when they arrived, there was the hands-on exploration of new products, creative inspiration, games, prizes, and more! Here's a small glimpse of our day...
