Catalogue Sneak Peeks for the ESAD Blog Hop


The release of a new Annual Catalogue is an exciting – and busy – time in the Stampin’ Up! year! As well as highlighting those items that are retiring soon, we are busy making samples to share using products that are about to be released. And sometimes – like today’s Blog Hop – we give a Sneak Peek of what we’ve been busy creating!

I’ve got four sneak peek cards to share with you today – two each from two team crafting days. These all feature about to be released products!

thINK Creative Team Crafting Day

In late May I always host a Team Crafting Day for members of my thINK Creative Team so we can get together and create projects using items from the new catalogue. It’s great to spend a day with crafty friends and to get lots of preparation done before the catalogue goes live. At my day last weekend, team members could participate in a Shoebox swap and/or craft freestyle!

My Shoebox swap was a pair of Memories & More cards. To show how quick and simple cards made with Memories & More Card Packs can be, participants got to make a card featuring each of the two available packs (Come Sail Away and Magnolia Lane). Both using the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes as their base. Of course, everyone’s finished cards were different as there are many different cards in each pack. Here are the two samples I made

Memories & More

  • Stamps: none!
  • Ink: none!
  • Card: Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes
  • Accessories: Come Sail Away and Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card packs, Baker’s Twine, Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo
  • Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots
  • Tools: none!

I love how the kraft card bases are sized perfectly for the Memories and More Cards.

Sally’s Team Crafting Day

Then yesterday, I got to “do-it-all-again” as one of my team members (Sally Wheoki aka Stamped Wishes) hosted another team crafting day! So it was more good company and fun crafting in preparation for the new catalogue!

I offered to do a Make’n’Take as well as my Shoebox Swap, and we agreed I’d feature the Come Sail Away Product Suite. I have made display boards for several of the new suites – including Come Sail Away.

Come Sail Away Display boards

A great way to see all the products in the Suite.

My Shoebox Swap

Come Sail Away

As this was a Shoebox Swap, it was important to have a project that didn’t take too long. So I pre-cut the circles and had post-it notes set in the correct place for everyone to do their sponging of the sea on the larger circle. I had cut this so there was a straight edge which would go along the card edge.

After sponging the sea, the yacht was stamped in Momento Black onto this circle as well as onto scraps of Crumb Cake and Whisper White. The Whisper White sails and the Crumb Cake boat were fussy cut, and then adhered onto the complete boat image with glue. This circle was attached to the card front with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto the smaller white circle, close to one side. This was glued to the front of the card so that the sentiment was straight and a small amount of the circle hung off the edge of the card. I trimmed this excess off, attached the embellishment with glue dots and tied the Baker’s Twine around the card.

Inside the card the compass image was stamped in Crumb Cake.

Come SaIl Away

  • Stamps: Sailing Home 
  • Ink: Seaside Spray, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
  • Card: Thick Whisper White, Seaside Spray, Crumb Cake
  • Accessories: Baker’s Twine, Sail Away Trinkets
  • Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots
  • Tools: Stitched Shapes Dies, Paper Snips


And lastly – my Make’n’Take:

Sail Away


  • Stamps: Sailing Home 
  • Ink: Night of Navy
  • Card: Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake
  • Accessories: Baker’s Twine, Sail Away Trinkets, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots
  • Tools:Smooth Sailing Dies, Stamparatus

The DSP was matted onto Night of Navy and then attached to the card front with glue. To be time efficient and ensure all the stamped diecuts were lined up correctly, I had again pre-cut all the die shapes and set up a template to be used on the Stamparatus to do the stamping with. 



To make this, I firstly stamped all three of the images that would be die cut onto a large piece of Whisper White. I then diecut these images which left a space where each person could place their diecuts and stamp all the images at the same time.

Come Sail Away

The lighthouse and label were adhered to the card front with dimensionals and the anchor to the inside of the card with glue. Finally a piece of Baker’s Twine was tied to the anchor from the Sail away Trinkets and attached to the card with glue dots.

I’ve had fun making these cards, fun seeing others make them at team crafting days, and fun now sharing them with you!

I’m sure this Come Sail Away Product Suite is going to be a very popular item when the catalogue goes live on Tuesday 4th June.
