Control Freaks Blog Tour: Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-bration Sneak Peeks

Are you ready for some sneak peeks!? I'm so excited to participate in this month's Control Freaks Blog tour because we are showcasing projects featuring the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog Sneak Peeks! Whether you came from Mary Brown's blog or you are just joining the fun, you're in for a treat! Make sure to hop all the way through the tour to check out what we've created with all the great new products that will be available when the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration promotion start January 5, 2016.

I have heard from many of you that your catalogs are starting to arrive in the mail. If you ordered from me in 2015, I have selected and paid for you to receive a catalog from Stampin' Up!. If you are not already working with another demonstrator and would like to receive copies of the catalog, please contact me!


I've been having fun playing with some new products that I received at the Founder's Circle Retreat in September. Check out this beautiful stamp set and designer paper!

It's fitting that my first project was inspired by a swap I received at Founder's Circle. I love the simple gift card holder that Patty Bennett swapped. I updated for spring with the new goodies we got. You could tuck a small treat (like a cookie or some chocolates) in the front pocket and the note in the back.

It's super simple! I used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags (#138315) and folded the bottom up -- approximately 3" from the bottom. I wrapped a 1-1/2" x 10" piece designer paper around the bag and used the Handheld Stapler (#139083) to secure it in place. The card in the back is 4" x 4-1/4". I punched the top corners with the Curvy Corners Trio Punch (#139683). Check out this close-up! The new Wink of Stella (#141897) added a pretty shimmer to the watercolored flower image.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms mini memo notebook 2016 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek #stampinup www.juliedavison.comI used the same stamp set and designer paper to create these little gifts for my team who attended the On Stage event in November. On Stage is the training event for Demonstrators. We got to be the first to see the catalog and use the new products. It was so fun! I'm already looking forward to the next event in April.

I picked up these mini memo books at the dollar store. To pretty them up, I cut out two pieces of cardstock to cover the front and back covers. Then I wrapped a piece of designer paper around the binding. Be sure to use a strong adhesive so it doesn't pop off!

That's all I have for you tonight, but be sure to come back and visit for lots more Occasions Catalog Sneak Peeks in the coming week! For now, it's time to continue on with the tour and head over to see what awesomeness my friend Dawn Olchefske has created for you this month!
