2017 SU Holiday Catalog New Product Spotlight Blog Tour - Test Tubes

It's Day 4 of our Holiday Product Spotlight and today we are featuring test tubes.  Have you seen these?  They are on page 52  of the Holiday Catalog.  

I really wanted to create something for a gift- so after several tries I created this!

So this is the front and holds one K cup

The other side holds 2 test tubes for sugar and creamer.

So what do you think?  
I'm super excited to make several of these for gifts for my coffee lovin' friends!  
Funny thing is I'm not a coffee drinker!

Want the directions?  Then stop back this weekend- currently working on the video.

Welcome back to our 2017 SU Holiday Catalog Product Spotlight Blog Tour!  We are having a blast creating and today we spotlight the Vintage Crochet Trim.

You can find the crochet trim on page 53 of the Holiday Catalog.  

While the beautiful black crochet trim is feature with the Halloween products is cam be used for so much more.  Here are three cards I created using this beautiful trim-

2017 SU Holiday Catalog Product Spotlight-Painted Harvest

Welcome to the 2017 SU Holiday Catalog Product Spotlight Blog Tour! 

 5 days featuring new product to inspire you.  We are starting with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set from page 48-49 of the catalog.  It's part of the Painted Autumn Suite and there are so many products that coordinate.  I have a lot to share with you today so lets take a look at the stamp set first.  It's 13 photopolymer stamps that have a watercolor feel.

One of the first things I did was experiment with some color- this beautiful flower looks great is so many color combinations!

I love home decor projects so I created this sweet project for a co-worker
 friend to remind her how grateful I am for our friendship.

Love creating these mini canvas works of art!

2nd project was this sweet card with a fun fold!  Added the Painted Autumn DSP to the front of the card to match the colors of the sunflower.  

3rd project features the greeting from the stamp set to create a gift box of Thank you cards - using a different piece of DSP makes each card just unique.  Great way to show off this beautiful DSP.

These 4 cards and envelopes will go into one of the NEW Acetate Card Boxes and will make a great gift!

For more inspiration head over to Teresa Snyder-Granberry by clicking on her name.
If you arrived here from Thersa's blog then head over to Jenn Van Wart to be inspired.

Coffee Cafe'

As I'm creating samples and projects with the new products from the Holiday Catalog I realized that I had a large stack of cards I haven't shared with you!  One of the great things we do as demonstrators is to share ideas.  We do this in several ways - but one way I love is by swapping.  I participated in 2 SWAPS in June and I'll share these cards with you this week.

Several of the demonstrators created beautiful cards with the Coffee Cafe' Bundle and Coffee Break DSP.  You can find this suite of products on page 30-31 of the Annual Catalog. If you're a coffee drinker this is a must have set.

So here are some the the beautiful cards I received in the SWAP using this set. Unfortunately I did not keep the name of the talented creators with the cards. 

Leave a comment with which card is your favorite(top card is #1 and bottle card is #6) and I'll send it
 your way! Winner will be announced on Sunday 9/10/17.
