New Stampin' UP! catalog Blog hop

 Welcome to my very first Blog Hop! You are about to enter into a very exciting time with us demonstrators while we strutt our stuff with new and fun products in the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog that was released last Friday (May 31st).

 I am the first stop or you may have hopped over from Denise Sullivan's blog, so buckle yourself up for a fun ride!

The new 2013-2015 In-Colors are absolutely beautiful! They remind me of the caribbean (even though I've never been). The colors are smooth and not too bold and not too soft .....just right.

(from left to right): baked brown sugar , coastal cabana, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding, and strawberry slush

I created this project in 2 different colors and I just can't make up my mind which one I like best: pistachio pudding OR strawberry slush.

These little guys have a drawer that you can pull out to reveal your stack of 3"x3" post-it notes as shown on the left. It's also personalized with a monogram using the occasions alphabet stamp set.

The mosaic punch, coordinating embossing folder and stamp set was used in my design. Although I would like to take credit for the overall design of the box, I did, however, downsize the original design that was created by fellow demonstrator, Connie Babbert.You can view her "desktop calendar box" HERE.

Now you must be wondering about dimensions and supplies, right?! I just so happen to create a pdf tutorial for you to make your own "desktop post-it note easel" (click below).
