2017 Holiday Catalog Another Peek

What a week this has been! On Tuesday, my father suffered a stroke. Luckily, his secretary at work recognized what was happening and called 911 immediately, and the local Fire Department and EMS personnel responded quickly. We can’t thank all of these people enough; without their help, my dad may not have experienced the outcome he did! My dad is now home and learning to cope with the lingering physical effects which we hope will improve with time. Then yesterday, a special friend passed away after a long, inspirational, and courageous battle with cancer. I will miss her dearly and am blessed that God provided me the opportunity to know her and to love her. I will never forget her beautiful smile, delightful personality, and courageous spirit.

Earlier this week, I promised to return with a few more videos featuring new products from the upcoming new 2017 Holiday Catalog. I hope you will accept my apologies for the delay and will enjoy these next few videos.  Click here to view the videos I posted on Tuesday, if you haven’t already viewed them.

The first video features the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle. This bundle is definitely on my wish list, as I love snowflakes and they are so versatile! I also think is pairs nicely with the Year of Cheers Suite.

This next video features the Hearts Come Home Bundle. This bundle creates beautiful cards and may look a little familiar to you as it reminds me of last year’s November 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I ordered extra refills of the kit because the cards were so pretty.

And, finally, I’d like to share the video for the Smitten Mittens Bundle. I think you will enjoy this cute set as well.

I definitely have my favorites from the new 2017 Holiday Catalog. From the three videos I have shared with you today, which product bundle is your favorite? Leave me a comment below and let me know which bundle you like the best. I love to hear your feedback!

Speaking of favorites, don’t miss out on my 2017 Holiday Catalog Product Shares. Click here for all the details on these shares and to learn about the FREE bonus items available with the “I Want It All” Share. I will only be offering 25 Product Shares, so reserve yours today. This is a great way to get a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Embellishments from the new holiday catalog, at an economical price.

2017 Holiday Catalog & Product Shares

Stampin Up, 2017 Holiday Catalog, Product Shares, Card and Gift ideas designed by Demo Lynn Tague at BeyondBeachesandBlessings.com #BeyondBeachesandBlessings

The 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live on September 1, just a little over a month from now and I have some exciting news to share with you! I am offering 2017 Holiday Catalog Product Shares this year! There are so many wonderful new products, you’ll likely want them all, like me!  Shares are a great way to get a little of everything…

Why participate in my Product Shares program?
Shares are an inexpensive way to sample the new Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, and Embellishments at a fraction of the cost than you’d spend to purchase all of them yourself. Customers and Demonstrators alike love having a little bit of everything from the new catalog, without investing in the full cost of buying every new product.

When you see that adorable card on Pinterest, you’ll be able to re-create that special card because you bought the “I Want It All” share! If you purchased each individual new product yourself that is included in the “I Want It All” share, it would cost you $203.50 plus shipping and tax!

How My Product Shares Program Works

  1. Simply CONTACT ME and tell me which share(s) you would like to purchase.
  2. I will then invoice you through your email address using my Apple Point of Service Square account, or you may send me a check.
  3. Your papers will be carefully and lovingly wrapped to protect them; ribbons will be rolled; and embellishments will be placed into small plastic bags.
  4. Your shares will be sent out via the US Postal Service in Priority Envelopes with tracking.

Please note my paper shares are 6″ x 12″ for most paper designs. Many demonstrators provide you with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper, so you are getting twice as much paper when you purchase my shares (enough for up to three A2 size cards).

Designer Series Paper (DSP) Share — $25 (includes shipping). If you are one of my local customers and pick up at my house, the share is $18, saving you the shipping cost.

  • 47 sheets of Designer Series Paper
  • 7 yards of Ribbon
  • 52 Embellishments

Plus these FREE BONUS products:

Pick a “B”

Stampin Up, Pals Blog Hop, Demo Lynn Tague at BeyondBeachesandBlessings.com #BeyondBeachesandBlessings

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B”, features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For today’s project I chose “B” for Baby and “B” for Birthday, sharing with you some projects I created using the new Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper is beautiful and can be used for a variety of occasions such as baby, birthdays, weddings or anniversaries. This heavyweight DSP features Gold Foil on one side of the 12 sheets that are included, then six are Soft Sky/Very Vanilla and six are Blushing Bride/Very Vanilla on the other side. This beautiful and versatile paper is part of the Bundle of Love Suite on pages 102-103 in the new 2017/2018 Annual Catalog.

For the Baby Boy in your life, I used the Soft Sky/Very Vanilla paper to make this standard A2 card and 3″x3″ cards.

For the Baby Girl in your life, I used the Blushing Bride/Very Vanilla paper to make this A2 card and 3″x3″ cards. The 3D favors are from both the Blushing Bride and Soft Sky with Very Vanilla papers.

For that special friend or family member who likes a little bling, I used the Gold Foil/Very Vanilla paper for the following projects along with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder for the sentiments. I just love the fantastic prints available in this DSP paper pack, don’t you?

The 3″x3″ notecards were made to highlight the other two distinct patterns included in the new Bundle of Love Specialty DSP pack, the new Starburst punch (a new personal favorite), and the new Iridescent Sequin Assortment. The 3D favors, filled with the candy coated chocolate Sixlets, also demonstrate how you can use a thinlit or framelit to cut out a window.  Now that you have seen the Starburst Punch in all the 3″x3″ cards, what do you think? I just LOVE it paired with the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (another personal favorite).

The list of supplies available in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog I used to create today’s projects are included at the bottom of my post. Hope you enjoyed these projects and they inspire some craftiness in you. Let me know what you think of today’s projects and the new products featured by leaving me a comment below.
