...and it matches our Stampin' Up designer paper! As a long time sewer, I'm very excited that we've added fabric to our offerings. First off -- to see the new Holiday Mini catalog with this yummy fabric and so many other neat things -- just click on the Holiday Mini link in my blog's right column to download the new mini. And if you want to see other catalogs, there's a link above that for all current cattys. (Remember you can shop online, 24/7 using my Order Online button -- and don't forget the Clearance Rack for online-only specials on retired items!)
There are two offerings of fabric -- each is a set of three EXTRA WIDE fat quarters that coordinate. I emphasized extra wide as they are a good 6 to 8 inches wider than your average store-bought fat quarter. That's an extra long strip to run through the Big Shot and die cut your favorite shapes. The photo above is SU founder Shelli Gardner and her daughter Sara Douglass showing off how wide the SU fabric is (compared to the regular fat quarter they're holding from a big box store) -- and they are each wearing a skirt made with our fabric. Shelli is wearing the Deck the Halls collection and Sara is wearing Candy Cane Christmas -- best of all those skirts turn into Christmas tree skirts when they are not wearing them -- too cool!!
Here are photos of lots of fabric projects that SU had on display at our summer convention.
See that trim on the card above? Cut from fabric using the new Tasteful Trim BIGZ XL Die -- can you say giant ric rac??!! It's item #120893 and a must have for die cutters to use on fabric, paper, chipboard and much more to make four different style trims!! Awesome.
Here's a look at how nicely it's packaged and a taste of the cute project idea pamphlet that comes along with each set.
Sorry to have been such a stranger this month. I try to keep this blog about stamping -- but we all have families of course and the past month has been a stressful one as I've gotten very involved in helping my elderly mom take care of her even older husband who's now in a nursing home due to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Stamping is a respite -- many of you know that to be true. So as I enter that sandwich generation officially, I plan to balance both so check back in for some more inspiration soon.
