2012 Occasions Mini Catalog Is Available!

The new Occasions Mini Catalog is now available!  I think Stampin' Up! has outdone themselves - again!  There are so many wonderful new items in this catalog that you are certainly going to want for yourself.  (I know I had a huge list!)

Today I have a card made with the beautiful Apothecary Art stamp set.  This is such an elegant stamp set AND there's something special to go with it.  We now have Framelits Dies!  The innovative, thin, wafer-like design of these dies lets you see where you're placing the design before you cut!

Layer dies inside each other to cut frames for stamp images. Cut single labels for accents or layering. Use with single sheets of card stock or Designer Series Paper.  The Labels Collection coordinates with our Apothecary Art Stamp Set.  Largest label is approximately 5-7/16" wide.  Includes 6 dies in a sturdy envelope for easy storage in our Big Shot Die Storage.

And here is the card I made:
I told you this stamp set was beautiful!  I also used some of our Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and some Baja Breeze 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon from the mini catalog.  The flowers were watercolored with dye inks and Blender Pens.    I have a trivia question for you - does anyone know when, where, and who first used the word "twitterpated"?  Leave me your guess in the comments below.  Who knows, I might have a blog candy drawing from the correct answers.  But you have to be honest and tell me if you KNOW the answer or if you had to look it up on Google or something...Smiley from

  1. I'm honestly not sure but I think it's something Thumper said in the movie BAMBI, I think he was nervous and twitchy.

    1. You are really close Vicki! It was actually "owl" who said it to Thumper and Flower. You can see the whole thing HERE: (scroll down a little ways to find it).
