I’ve had loads of fun in my studio making all kinds of cards and projects with my new Occasions projects,  Here’s one of the simple cards I made with the beautiful Flowering Desert stamp set.  If you’re a paper crafter you’ve probably seen lots of gorgeous Butterfly Gala card designs everywhere and yes, I do own it but I love the Flowering Cactus stamp set and there are not many examples of it on Pinterest, Facebook or Instagram.  So here’s one example:

The Flowering Desert Stamp Set is in the Occasions catalog on page 29.  In case you haven’t noticed, this is one of the You Can Make It featured products in the catalog.  On the top of that page Stampin Up shows several card examples and all the supplies need to make the cards on that page but what I want you to notice is that you can use item number 150813 to order all those products.  The great thing about this is the US price for all those items is $66.50 which qualifies you to get a FREE level 1 item from Sale-A-bration catalog, but if you only need the stamp set that item number is 148700.  love that you can build your own cactus. I made mine a Texas Prickly Pear cactus.


This year I will be offering something new to my business.  I hold paper crafting classes in my home studio but now I’m offering a Class to Go kit for people who can’t attend.  There are several options you can choose from.  My January 2019 class is based on the Butterfly Gala Bundle.  Make sure you click on this  link to read all about my Class to Go Kits available this month.
