The New Catalog Featuring the Botanicals

Botanicals for You, Botanical Builder, Birthday Bouquet

Happy New Year! Did you have a great holiday season? I hope you did and were able to take a moment and count your blessings, which is frequently lost in the hustle and bustle of the season. I took off some time to just be with my kids, playing silly games and watching favorite movies together. They will be going back to college tomorrow! The time really did go too fast. I finally got to play with my new products from the new catalogs and now have a sneak peek for you. The stamp set is Botanicals for You and is out of the new Sale-A-Bration catalog. You can get it for FREE with any order of $50 or more from the annual or Occasions catalogs as well as Year-end Sales or even Weekly Deals. Easy Peazy!

I found a brand new Challenge blog that I am SO excited about! It’s Stamping Smiles Designs Tic- SSDTTT 1Tac-Toe Challenge. It was announced about a week ago and the first challenge went live on Friday. I will definitely be a playing along regularly with this challenge! My card today was made using the middle row: Celebrate, Embossing and Jumbo Letters.

Another new item, Botanical Builder Framelits, was used for the flower. The smaller sentiment is from the new stamp set, Enjoy the Little Things (great advice AND stamp set!).  The pretty designer paper is called Birthday Bouquet and I can already tell you that I will be hoarding this one – love it!


Let’s start the year with something FREE! I would love to give one of you some great new products from the catalog. All you have to do is guess which stamp set in the new Occasions catalog will be the most popular! Leave me a comment at the end of this post and I will announce the randomly picked winner next week.


Did you forget that tomorrow will be the last day of the Holiday Mini Catalog? Are you stocked up on stamp sets, favorite ribbons, embellishments and paper? If not, here is the Retiring List. Take note of the last column because if there is an “x” there, that product is sold out. Then, just jot down the items you would like to buy and send them to me or go to my Shop Now button and purchase them before they are gone. Do you need a little push to buy some fun craft stuff after the holidays? I will send you free NEW product worth at least $10 for $30 you spend. Act TODAY! This offer ends tomorrow with the end of the Year-end sale.

  1. I think the most popular set will be the botanicals set

  2. Such a pretty sneak peek! I love the large font used for Just For You. And, thanks for the heads up on the tic tac toe challenge… will have to check it out. As for the best selling stamp set in the Occasions catalog… I have three to choose from… Birthday Blooms, Number of Years or Grateful Bunch. Based on the popularity in our Pals community, it may just be Number of Years!

    So glad you took time to be with your family. These memories will be cherished. Now… off to pin….

  3. What an eye catcher! I first noticed the flower with the gold sequin…then everything else! I love your embossed background and the colors! Such a vibrant and striking card.
    I was beginning to fear you had retired from stamping! So happy to know that you were spending precious time with your family and cooking up cards like this in your head! I can’t wait to see more

  4. First of all, thanks for the chance to win blog candy! I’m going to say Number of Years and the Picture Perfect sets will be very popular, however, I think the whole catalog is full of winners!

  5. I think Picture Perfect will be the great seller. Myself , I like the Rose Wonder—but then again, I love almost everyone of the stamp sets. Thanks for a chance for blog candy.

  6. Oh wow!! This card is STUNNING!! I LOVE that large sentiment you used and the colors are eye-catching. Beautiful card!!

  9. Wow, gorgeous card! I love the sentiment and all of the fabulous details you added. The curled banner is awesome. Fun new challenge too! I think the Bloomin’ Love set will be the most popular.

  10. Hello Debbie, Thank you for participating in the Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge One. I am happy you had a nice holiday with your Family. Your creation packs a lot of detail. The embossed background adds great texture. Love the usage of jumbo letters and the curling on the celebrate sentiment, both fantastic!

  14. What a beautiful card, Debbie. I always look forward to your posts & to see your cards. You do such nice work! I believe the Rose Wonder is going to be the best seller. It has that beautiful big rose with the ability to get the coordinating die. And the verses are very versatile.

  15. I’m not sure which will be the most popular, but Birthday Blooms is the one I love the best!! It’s definitely on my wish list!

  16. Debbie, this is one stunning card! Wow! I’m oohing and ahhing over all the fabulous details. I’ve never thought to emboss patterned paper…such a cool idea. And I adore the cluster of embellishments. Thanks so much for playing along with our very first Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!
