The Wacky Watercooler August Blog Hop -- A Sneak Peek at the new Holiday Catalog(ue)

Can you believe that we're already letting you have a sneak peek at the new Holiday Catalog(ue)?  Hasn't this summer raced by?

You're going to be amazed at the variety of products stuffed into the pages of the Holiday Catalog(ue)!  Seriously!  This little catalog(ue) can't be called a "mini".  There is nothing "mini" about it.  Among the eight of us participating in the Blog Hop this month, we should be able to give you a glimpse of what is coming up when the catalog(ue) premieres on August 28th.  You'd better get out a pen and paper.  You'll want to make a list of all the great projects you'll be wanting to CASE.

This month's hoppers are:

                    Gail Allen

                    Terri Antoniw 

                    Priscilla Ivler

                    Stefanie Pletscher

                    Marsha Reed

                    Kath R.

                    Deborah Smart

                    Heidi Weaver 
As I mentioned, we're having a sneak peek at the new Holiday Catalog(ue).  Of course we'll also be using some of the terrific products that were just released in the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog(ue) and also the carry-overs from the past two years that will be available to order until August 28th.  Some of those carry-overs work beautifully with the new products and you may wish to order them before they're gone forever.

Our blog hop is a circular one.  Whether you start at the beginning or the end, whether you begin partway through, inevitably you wind up where you began.  Like a ring, the circle is complete and never-ending.  Of course you can "jump off" at any time, but we trust that you'll find our hop so fabulous that you continue right on through all ten blogs.

We hope you've enjoyed celebrating our Holiday Catalog(ue) sneak peek.   Bookmark our site and join us in September for more of the Holiday Catalog(ue) and additional surprises.

If you have a moment, please leave a comment on the blogs you visit.  It's always exciting to hear from our visitors.

Wacky Watercooler Pre-Blog Hop Post---Patti Leeke

It's just a few more days until our next Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop begins on August 21st.  To whet your appetites and get some interest going, we're presenting Patti Leeke's trio of cards.

Patti has used the same design for all three cards but changed them out slightly with different sentiments and/or different colours.  The "Thank You" and "Get Well" cards are both created using a base cardstock of Hello Honey, a doily in Blackberry Bliss, leaves in Mossy Meadow and flowers  and sentiment stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink.  You can see the inside of the "Get Well" card just above it and can imagine how the others were finished off inside as well.

The "Celebrate Today" card has a base cardstock of Lost Lagoon, a white doily and leaves in Mossy Meadow.  The stamping of flowers and sentiment shows off the Lost Lagoon ink.

These are great cards to have on hand or to give as gifts or prizes.  Not only do they show off the new In-Colours beautifully, but they also show how easily the same design can be used for various occasions.

Many thanks to Patti Leeke for sharing these with us.
