Botanical Garden Sneak Peak and Sale Info

The end of the year is almost here and that means that the new Occassions Catalog will be open for business soon, January 5.  My card today isa sneak peak of some of the new products available.  My husband’s cousin passed away earlier this month.  He had been ill for a long time but his wife of 40+ years will miss him dearly.

The botanical builder framelits have some unique designs, ones we haven’t seen previously.  Check out the two flowers with the double petals.  I cropped them both using so saffron then sponged calypso coral around the edges and centers.

The leaf framelits makes a very pretty border, rather than a separate piece.  I love this aspect.  Cutting it out of mossy meadow I layered it over another sneak peak of Designer series paper.

And how about the other intricate leaves.  The detail of this die is amazing.  Like a laser die cut results only using a big shot.  With the coordinating stamp set you can stamp and it before you crop, or just stamp like I did for a background.

Stampin Up has created a bundle for all of these products.  For $51.75 you receive the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set, Botanical Gardens Paper, and Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  Plus, because it is over $50 you can select a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog .  There are two free items that specifically coordinate with this bundle.  Botanicals for You Stamp Set or the Botanical Gardnes vellum pack.  Or select any one of the of the other free items. They are all great.

Sale-A-Bration starts Jan 5-March 31
Sale-a-Bration – the biggest event Stampin Up holds – also goes live on Jan 5. For every $50 in Stampin Up product you order, you can select an item for Free from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and there are some really cute items in there, stamp sets, paper, Project Life, and many of them coordiante with items in the Occasions catalog for even more use.

Big Sign Up Offers Starting Jan 5
Have you ever considered how great it would be to order Stampin Up products with a built in 20% discount.  That is what all Demonstrators receive on all the orders placed.  Most demonstrators are Hobby demos.  That means they signed up to be a demo really just for themselves so they can enjoy that 20% savings.  Joining is easy.  Just select $125 worth of products that you want,  but only pay $99.00.  But Wait –  Stampin Up makes it even better to join during Sale-a-Bration.  If you join during SAB, you get to select an additional $30 in products and still only pay $99.00.  That’s $155 in Stampin Up product for only $99 and that is equal to a 36% discount. 

All other orders you place for yourself or perhaps for others will be discounted 20%.  Membership is minimal but if you don’t want to maintain it or don’t place any other orders, there is no penalty to drop.  Actually there are lots of people who join during SAB every year, drop a few months later, then join again during SAB the next year.  Stampin Up makes it easy to do and cost effective as well.  If you are interested in the fabulous offer, just email me, text  or call and I’ll answer all your questions.  Or, if you already know you are ready, click on this link, enter my name  – Lynn Kolcun – to locate me in the directory and click the Join Now button.

About Lynn

Thanks for visiting my Site. My name is Lynn Kolcun and I'm a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love being creative with paper and ink, learning new techniques and sharing my craft with you.


  1. Lynn, this card is stunning! So pretty in every way. I am sorry about the loss of your husband’s cousin.

  2. Lynn, this is my all time favorite suite in the new catalog. I’ve already made 3 cards using these framelits and paper. Your take is really cool. I love how you stamped the leaves on the Mossy Meadow paper, as a background. It’s a perfect match to the dsp on the left side. Beautiful! My prayers for your family at your time of loss. Happy New Year though…may 2016 be the best ever!

  3. I love this card idea… I’ve seen so many good ideas using this bundle…. I’m guessing that it’s going to go back ordered…lol. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity

  4. Your card is gorgeous!
