Without a camera...

You have no idea how hard it is to live without a digital camera. Yes, my phone has a camera...but its not the same!! My wonderful Canon Powershot that I've had for almost 6 years bit the dust on the first night of Stampin' Up Leadership about a month ago. Seriously...the first.freakin.night. How ill-timed is that?!?!

Fortunately the gals I went with took a bazillion photos so I was able to get some copies of their shots to continue to live blissfully within the joy of SU Leadership. :)

Wouldn't this be a great teacher gift?? Crazy what people can make out of paper!

Beautiful fabric pillows. This fabric will be released later this year. Our Leadership bags were made out of this fabric..and I get compliments on the bag every time I'm out with it. In fact, a recent hostess tried to steal the bag from me. :)

Beautiful roommate gift from my up-upline. Made entirely out of border punches...can you believe that???

We were challenged to create a book using the art journals in the catalog. This was one example that was shown. I'm such a sucker for butterflies.

Isn't this gorgeous?? This was one of the sets we received at Leadership. Now I just need to get my greedy little hands on that punch...

Isn't this amazing!!! On March 1st customers can purchase a Diagonal tool insert that fits on top of the Score Tool. It will allow you to make boxes like these with absolutely no cutting! The diagonal tool will also allow you to make beautiful envelopes and packages using designer series paper. Just another thing I can't wait to get ahold of. :)

I sure do wish my camera didn't break when it did. Seriously, it was the first night of Leadership, I was walking around after the make-and-take session and was only able to snap about 50 photos of displays before it started making this completely heinous sound and then the lense jammed and wouldn't go back into the camera. I even hit up a professional photographer there to see what he thought, and he basically said, "buy a new camera." So I'm currently pricing new ones and trying to decide which will be the best option for me.

Some of the pictures above showcase Occasions Mini catalog materials as well as Sale-A-Bration materials. If you haven't received these catalogs yet, contact me and I'll get them to you! Remember, for every $50 you spend, you'll receive one FREE item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog! Great time to stock up!

Stampin' Up announced at Leadership that the catalog program will be revamped this year. Gone is the summer mini catalog, and the two remaining "mini" catalogs will be bigger (both in size and pages) and last longer (five months instead of four). Also the main catalog will change on June 1st instead of July 1st. I encourage you to look at your stock now to see what items you might need, because accessories, embellishments, and In Color items go FAST. The current 2010-2012 In Colors will retire effective May 31st. Stock up NOW!!
