Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - New Catalog Release Party!

I am so happy it's another month to do some blog hopping with friends!! This month the Stylin' Stampin' Squad is excited to share with you some of the new and exciting products from the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog! I put an order in a couple of weeks ago to update my color collections and added a couple of new stamp sets and punches, plus a new pack of DSP while I was at it. Of course, there is still an ever growing LONG list of things I want from the catalog...isn't there always?

I pulled out the new Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper and gathered together all of the coordinating colors (Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla) and started to play!

Using the *new* Label Love stamp set and *new* coordinating Artisan Label Punch, I was able to whip out a few cards I could get in the mail right away!

Just for You card - Pistachio Pudding, Calypso Coral

Now, I must admit I do love this catalog and there are many reasons why, but one of the big things that jumped off the page for me when I first thumbed through it was the darling kits they are offering!! I ordered the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit Bundle and couldn't wait to play with them. Who doesn't love to receive a gift wrapped up in a pretty package?!

The Tag a Bag bundle includes all you see here...10 large base tags, 3 colors Baker's Twine (20' each), 40 Stampin' Dimensionals, 5 Smoky Slate self-adhesive strips (12" each), 10 mini clothespins, and 10 medium builder tags.

I ended up punching out all of the tags and then storing them in the resealable plastic baggie for safe keeping!

My daughter needed a quick gift for her Campfire Girls leader and I knew this was the perfect way to package it! Aren't you just swooning over those chevron pre-printed glassine bags. L-O-V-E!!

I added a butterfly with the Elegant Butterfly punch using Calypso Coral cardstock and then stamped the "thank you" from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set in the same color ink, die cutting it with the coordinating framelits. Then I topped it off with a Gumball Green dahlia. Everything else came in the kit! So quick, easy, and DARLING!

Here's a peek of the goodies inside...
I hope you enjoy the hop as you drool over all of the fun new catalog products!! There is much more to come, so don't forget to hop along to visit my friends and then come on back for more in the future!

Cute cards and I love the new DSP. I will have to add it to my list. Your tag is super cute too and I am sure the leader not only loved the packaging but also the great gift inside.

Oh no, looks what you made me do? I am going to have to put that kit on my next order! That's a great gift ensemble. And great tip on consolidating the components of the kit for storage.
