... welcome Vintage Vogue and Scallop Envelope! Yes, the Summer Mini and Sale-a-bration are over for another year. The excitement is now about the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue which was released today!

I found out a couple of days ago that there could be three more kids with us over Easter, so I "whipped up" these little treats and said my goodbyes to the gorgeous Chocolate Bunny from the Summer Mini.

Anyhow, I stamped and embellished this little box to match the three door hangers I made last week.

It is amazing just how many things (other than an envelope) that you can make with the Stampin' Up! scallop envelope!

Here are some sneak peaks into the Autumn-Winter Mini...

  • The Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, with exclusive dies and embossing folders
  • Clear-mount rubber stamps
  • Three new punches, now in a new easy-to-store design
  • Three new In Colours - cardstock, designer paper, ink and ribbon in Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry
  • Plus gorgeous stamp sets, designer papers, accessories, tools and more!

This year saw a change in the release schedule for the Stampin' Up! catalogues. That means that the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue will be around until the end of August 2010. To see us through until then, we will have the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue for five months. No wonder it's so BIG!
