Pre-Order Happiness


Guess who got her new Annual catalogue pre-order?! Yup – that’d be me, with the big smile on my face! 🙂  I was having a ‘post Crop & Create’ meeting at my house with my team members Lynn and Margaret, when UPS, aka ‘Mr. Brown’ rang the doorbell, and dropped off my 2 boxes of goodies.

So it was extra fun doing the un-boxing with Lynn and Margaret here – they were thrilled to see what I had ordered. Almost as thrilled as me!

Pre-Order Happiness

So true, right? I can’t be the only one who places an order, then anxiously waits for the ‘order shipped’ notification. Then, 2 days later, I start checking the UPS online tracker.  Then, I start watching out my front window!


The most difficult part of pre-ordering is whittling down your ‘wish list’ to something that doesn’t look like it’s a mortgage payment! LOL  I new I wanted to get the new colours, and I had already ordered & received the new In Colors. So, this is what I got.

Pre-Order Happiness

There’s all the new colours, including the new In Colors. Don’t they look yummy? I’m particularly in love with the new purples; Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. I also got the New Color cardstock assortment, and most of the new Nature’s Poem suite, which includes the fabulous Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies, Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Nature’s Poem Cardstock Pack, and Nature’s Twine.  I’m really looking forward to using this Bundle – I’ve already seen (and you probably have too) so many great cards created by other demonstrators.

You can’t see it – it’s in the large 12″ x 12″ cardboard pack at the back, but I also got the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. It’ll make you swoon, it’s so gorgeous! On the top left, you can see I took out one of the Delightfully Detailed Notecards & Envelopes – they’re made to be used with the specialty dsp. The watercolour wash on the notecards makes a perfect background.

Another new product that I’m looking forward to learning how to use is the new Big Shot Embossing Mats. Some of the new Framelits/Thinlits Dies also include embossing dies – they emboss, not cut! These new Embossing Mats will make that easy to do, and give you a perfect impression – of the leaves, for example, in the Nature’s Roots Framelits.

Be sure to keep checking back here, as I start creating with my new products, and sharing them with you!

Pre-Order Happiness

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
