It’s almost here… On January 4, 2017 the new Occasions Catalog 2017 will be released for everyone to see. Since I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’ve had it in my hands since December. I know, I know – it’s an awesome perk to get your hands on the catalog and goodies before it goes live. I’m not going to lie, I’ve stared at it for hours, folding over the pages of all the cute stamps sets, coordinating paper and ribbon.. oh… I just love it all. The one product that I am most excited about is the new WATER COLOR PENCILS! That’s right, you heard me, Stampin’ Up! has come out with water color pencils. They are creamy smooth and blend so easily, you can use them with the aqua painter and blender pens. We’ll be using them in class on January 8, 2017. To rsvp, check out the class/events tab in the navigation bar. Take a look at the video below for a sneak peek.
