Today I am celebrating New Year's Day by sharing some sneak peeks with you from the soon-to-be-released 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration! This Hello Beautiful card was created using the fabulous new Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.

The Takeout Treat gift boxes make cute Christmas Tree decorations. These ones are filled with chocolatey treats, which makes a sweet surprise for Christmas Day...

Changing things up today... instead of showing you the front of this card first, I'm sharing the inside of a Christmas card that features a lot of the lovely stamps from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set. Plus, take a look at the gorgeous die-cut fence from the coordinating Farmhouse Framelits Dies.

There are a number of stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue that are not just for Christmas and can be used all year round. Here's a simple thank you card stamped with the Peaceful Noel stamp set in Blueberry Bushell and Sahara Sand. I used the same Stamparatus method for creating a wreath, but orienting the stamps to create a bouquet...
