Hello 2014!

Hi there, Stampers!

Happy New Year!

Thanks for coming back to The Classic Card on this first day of 2014!  Like most years, 2013 held its share of ups and downs.  Thanks to all of my wonderful customers, 2013 was a great year to be your Stampin'Up! Demonstrator.  And now, as the page has been turned to a fresh new year, I look forward to lots more stamping good times with you!  Let's avoid all of the downer resolutions for the year ahead.  You know the ones I mean (like getting up at 6 am to jog, eating fish 6 times a week, and all those other unrealistic resolutions that doom you to failure). Instead, let's resolve to have more fun than ever!

A fresh new year calls for fresh new stamps, and that is just what is awaiting you on January 3rd, when the new Occasions catalog goes "live."  I'm hoping that you've received your new catalog in the mail by now.  If you haven't, please let me know.  This bright new catalog is full of new stamps, designer paper, and accessories to make your Springtime stamping fun and easy.

January can be a bit depressing after the warm and happy holiday season.  The pretty decorations are put away, the lights that added so much neighborhood cheer are down, and the gray coldness can start to seep into our attitudes, too, if we aren't on guard against it. Then along comes a new catalog and lots of fun stamping events to take our minds off the weather!  Here's a card I made recently that I think will be a day-brightener for you:

I used several new items to make this card:

First, the sentiment is from a new set called Starburst Sayings (page 34 of the new Occasions catalog).  There's a set of matching framelits on the same page, so there'll be no hours of fussy cutting for you!  The designer paper is from the Watercolor Wonder collection on page 23.  The fun dotted texture on the Daffodil Delight panel was made with a free Sale-a-bration item.... the new embosssing folder called Decorative Dots.  You can get this new embossing folder free when you make a $50 purchase during Sale-a -bration.                                                                                                                                                        
I hope I've inspired you to get out some of your brightest colors and brighten your own day with a little stamping.  Please come back on Friday for another Classic Card, featuring more new goodies!
Be happy!
