New stamps, designer papers, embellishments, embossing folders and dies will keep you scanning the pages of the new catalog for hours.  Although that may seem overwhelming to some, it makes me ridiculously happy! ((smile))

2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog  Lisa's Stamp Studio with exclusive online ordering rewards.

Among the new products is the stamp set, Lovely Friends.  There are several large greetings, an array of sentiments for the inside of your cards and several images.  This stamp set coordinates with the Lovely Laurel Thinlits (page 214) which will die cut the flower and the frame included in the set. 

I've included written instructions below for those of you using a mobile device. I also have a free PDF tutorial available for those that would like to download and save this project for a later day.
