Catalogue Launch

It's the day after.  The day after an exciting, fun, fabulous craftD Stampin' Up! Catalogue Launch Party that is.
It all started with a crazy whirl of activity whipping the room into shape.
We had a line up at 1pm to get in.  It will come as no surprise to those of you that know me that we weren't 100% ready.  We learned a lot for next year though.  lol

Wow!  So many came out to pick up their NEW catalogue and get some deals on NEW and Retired Stampin' Up! items.  We had make 'n' takes and goodies and door prizes.
I know you are all excited to hear who won the door prizes.  I wish everyone could win
but every attendee of the event was a winner.  Remember you have one coupon a 
month for a whole year.  Those coupons will not be given to anyone else.  That is an
exclusive special only for you as a thank you for attending my 2012-2013 craftD Stampin' Up!
catalogue launch party.

Hear are the winners.  You didn't have to be present to win and sadly none of our winners were present at the time of the draw.

Oh but wait, I should tell you that the super cute baskets were made with the dresden die.
Each basket is designed with a different embossing folder.  The embossing folders are
so reasonably priced and add such a big WOW to every project.

OK have I teased you enough.
