Leadership 2012

We are having a great time here in San Antonio!  We have learned all sorts of great things and we can't wait to share!  Day One has been busy, walking around the River Walk, sightseeing and doing our make and takes.  I attended Managers Reception and later we had some late night snacks at the most famous restaurant on the River Walk, so famous that I can't remember the name at the moment.  The weather is beautiful and tomorrow the temp will be 77 degrees!  More to come from Texas...

Designer Frames

I'm having a blast playing with the Designer Frames Embossing Folders! The best part is you can get them for FREE starting next week during Sale-a-bration! My club hostess asked me to show a few things using these folders.  Once I sat down and started to play, I was thrilled with all the fun things I made!
Both the oval and the rectangle are equally fun and functionable.  What I discovered with these frames is I was able to create great cards quickly and simply!  The "punch" these frames offer finishes a card with little more required.
This one is a notecard (sold in sets of 20 w/ envelopes - classic note card size 5 x 3 1/2; $5.95).  I am planning to use a few of the Occasions sets I have on hand and make up some card sets for quick and easy gifts.
And last but not least - the best part is the XL Oval Punch punches out the center of this frame perfectly! The options here are endless!  Have fun creating with these great frames!  ~Heidi

The Occasions Mini Catalog is here!

This card above is all about the new product in the mini catalog!  This card was created with Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede and the DSP, Beau Chateau (which is in the Idea Book and Catalog).  The stamp set is new too, Tea Shoppe (125545), a to-be-fave for all of the vintage fans out there!  You may also notice the simple heart pattern at the top of the card... I know, those hearts are so cute!  There is a new embossing folder set called Adorning Accents (125601).  There are three patterns in the set, including the hearts above.   The picture isn't the best as I was trying to make the hearts the most visible part which worked, but the card looks nicer in person.  At any rate, it's fun to focus the stamping on something that isn't red or green!  Sera
