Christmas in July and a SNEAKY PEEK!

Mr. Brown delivered a box full of fabulous, amazing, wonderful, awesome, and neat-o goodies from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog yesterday. So today, taking a break from making swap cards, I made this card so you could get a preview of coming distractions (tee hee)!  Oh, baby, when I say SU outdid themselves, I'm not kidding. Shown here are four items from the Holiday catty.

First thing you may notice is the Champagne Glimmer Paper. The photo just does NOT do it justice. It is much brighter and sparkly than my rotten camera can depict.

Next is the Holiday Ornament Framelits. There are eight Framelits, which match the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (nine stamps). They are uh-MAZING!

Now take a closer look at that ornament.  If you can see past the sparkly stuff, you may notice the ornament was heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder! It's hard to tell with the glare of the light reflection, but you can see it better near the bottom of the ornament. In the new catalog there is also Gumball Green EP, as well as a couple of new scented ones!

And lastly, you may have noticed the embossing folder. There are three new folders!  This one is called Lacy Brocade and it is soooo elegant.

Okay, enough previews.....I gotta get back to work on my swaps!
