New Occasions Mini Catalog and Stampin' Up! Card Box with Snowflakes

Hi there My Stamping Friends....and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I am so excited about all the new goodies in the BRAND NEW 2012 Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. In case you didn't get one in the mail, you can click on the e-version on the right sidebar of my blog to check out the new catalog. It is stuffed with great items! I am a little embarrassed to admit how much I spent, however I'm justifying it by letting you know we WILL use it all at my upcoming classes and clubs and workshops. I'm putting the finishing touches on my calendar dates and I'll post everything tonight. I had to re-do some dates I penciled in because of my travel to the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference. I'll be sure to let you know when my schedule is updated becasue I know you'll really want to attend an event and try out some amazing products.

Anyway, I wanted to post a project I did about a month ago and it will be a part of one of my January or early February classes. This is a card box I made for a birthday party I did for an 11 year old girl. I taught her and a bunch of her friends how to make this and several cards to go inside. They had so much fun and so did I.

For this project I used:
Stampin' Up! Bashful blue cardstock #105120
Stampin' Up! Marina Mist cardstock #119682
Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer Paper #124005
Stampin' Up! Marina Mist Ink #119668
Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334
Stampin' Up! Sponges #101610
Stampin' Up! Big Shot #113439
Stampin' Up! Northern Frost Sizzlit Strip Die #120901
Stampin' Up! Decorative Strip Spacer Platform #113477
Stampin' Up! Decorative Strip Cutting Pads  #113479
Stampin' Up! 2 Way Glue Pen #100425
Stampin' Up! Dimensionals #104430
Stampin' Up! Snail (of course) #104332
Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip #104294

If you'd like to purchase any of these products you can click on the item code link or contact me and I can order them for you.

Here is another version I made with a different color box and a few less snowflakes (on the box, not the belly band) to make it more masculine. I gave this as a gift to a client that purchased a large set of Christmas Cards. This can fit aboout 30 cards and envelopes.

What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.
