Welcome to the Thailand Achievers Blog Hop for May 2017 - this time its SNEAK PEEKS!

I guess its no secret that StampinUp is about to release its 2017-18 Annual catalogue!  And the buzz is amazing!  I sent out catalogues by post to a lot of my customers a week or so ago.... and nearly every day I've been hearing back from at least one of them to tell me that they LOVE the new catalogue! Which is fabulous feedback of course..... and for good reason! This new catalogue is the BOMB!

My main problem for this month's hop was where to start??  There are SO MANY awesome products to play with.  As demonstrators we get to pre-order early so that we can get ready to show all of you.... and I must admit I had to really hold myself back from the selection of products that we could order. I could easily have spent an entire month's income.... but I'm trying to pace myself! After all, we have a year right?  But its all so pretty!

In the end I decided to open my new Happy Birthday thinlits die and create this very simple card.  It's part of a bundle called "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" (145301 - $64.75)... and that's also the name of the matching stamp set.  Even though I didn't use it on this card, I love the stamps and I can see they will be very versatile.  The colour on the card is also new.  This is called "Powder Pink" and its one of our funky new Incolor range for 2017-2019.  The patterned papers are part of a stack called "Fresh Florals" and come in an assortment of all the new incisors - obviously I went with the Powder Pink ones.  I cut the window out with my Layering Circles framelits (this is the largest one in the pack), and added a piece of vellum behind to soften the overall look.  The ribbon is also new.... it is the Powder Pink Finely woven Ribbon.  Stay tuned... I'll be doing a ribbon share with these for all my Australian readers.

I love the soft and muted effect that these colours bring to this card... just simple Powder Pink, Whisper White and a little silver.  This would be perfect for any little girl, or big girly girls too!  Here's a full shot:

If you would like to come along and play with some of these gorgeous products for yourself.... then come along to my NEW CATALOGUE LAUNCH to be held on June 3rd 2017 at 2pm.  Click HERE to book your spot as numbers are limited.  And I will have a fabulous LAUNCH ONLY special for everyone who comes on the day.
