Stars and Stripes

starblissI’m back today with the two Star cards that I made last weekend that you havent seen yet.

This card was done using some of my Berry Bliss cut offs and scraps of chocolate chip and pretty in pink cardstock. Very simple yet a pretty card and the Taffeta ribbon just makes it.

Needless to say I love using the In the Stars set with the punches we have and as I’ve said before one of the best things about Stampin’ Up!® is how they have designed their products to fully co-ordinate with each other.

In saying this I am just bursting with excitement to see what the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue has inside and I am sure it will be full of gorgeous co-ordingating stamps, punches, papers and accessories.

I hope they arrive soon – not sure how much longer I can contain it all although we have been given a sneak peek and are able to pre-order some lovelies so I’ll be able to show you some samples once the products arrive and I find some time to play!afternoonstars

For now you’ll have to settle for my ‘star cards’ and here’s another one using the Afternoon Tea Designer Series Papers and In the Stars.

If there are any Designer Series Paper packs you want to get before the new catalogue I would as they will be $19.50 per pack in the new catalogue.

Why such a huge increase in price?

Well you might remember back when the current catalogue was printed they actually printed the wrong price in the catalogue. The Designer Series Paper packs should have been $16.95 per pack however the price of $11.95 was printed. Stampin’ Up!® decided to honour that printed price and not reprint all the catalogues so all packs of DSP were $11.95 for the past 12 months.

While it was good for us this past year and saving $5 per pack was great it seems like a huge increase where in reality an increase of $2.55 per pack (based on the $16.95 price) is not too bad considering what has happened with the dollar in the past few months.
