Open House - New Catalogue Launch

A huge thank you to everyone who came along yesterday. I couldn't believe that I had people at the front door dead on 10.00 am and a late comer at 1.50 pm!  It was a fantastic but exhausting day. Once again a BIG thank you.

As well as selling off some of my old Stampin' Up! stamp sets and accessories, I also had on display some of the products available in both the Autumn/Winter Catalogue and the new Annual Catalogue. I hate to admit it, but I used the same style display as the one for the Peacock Farm WI Craft Show from a couple of weekends ago. I did of course add a few more samples and products that I received or made over the last couple of weeks since the show.

I love the way the display boxes let through the light.

I thought I'd also share the make & take with you. It is a slightly stepped up version of one of the Betsy's Blossoms cards that I showed you the other day. It is amazing what the addition of a butterfly does to a card. The butterfly is made using the new Elegant Butterfly punch available in the new Annual Catalogue. I love this butterfly punch and I'm sure you are going to see a lot of it over the coming months.

I also took another one a stage further by adding some Basic Pearls to the Summer Starfruit flowers.  I just love being able to take a simple but classy card to one that has a real wow factor too.

The rest of today is going to be busy tidying from yesterday and finding a home for all of my lovely new stash. 

Don't forget to check back in a couple of days for some more projects and ideas.
