What's New in the 2013 Catalog?

This card made with the Sending My Love set was perfect for my photographer husband this Valentine's Day! It's not too late to get this great set -- see page 8 of the 2013 catalog (along with a cute sample to show just how versatile this set is!)

The brand new A|Muse Studio catalog is about to be unveiled! While you wait, here is a taste of what to expect:

Stamp Sets
1. 31 new stamps sets featuring a variety of art styles.

1. 3 new signature colors: Mermaid, Berry, & Apple.
2. 10 Petite Polka Dot colors: Added Papaya, Wasabi, Grapefruit, & Mermaid.
3. 10 Chevron colors: added Papaya, Mermaid, & Onyx.

*New labels for ink pads will ship with ink orders as HQ transitions to the new color names. This will occur only with the remaining stock of inkpads to allow shrinkwrap to remain on these inkpads, which keeps the ink fresh.

1. New Pennant Die in 2 sizes: Perfect for custom banners!
2. 11 stamp sets with matching dies.

1. Now in 15 colors: Added Bermuda, Pistachio, Lime, & Mermaid.

1. Paper straws now in 10 colors (these were the #1 wedding supply item in 2012).

I hope you are getting excited -- March 1st is coming up quickly!

If you have been eyeing something on the retiring list -- don't wait too long! In fact, here is the latest on the Polka Dot assortment:
The Petite Polka Dot cardstock assortment pack and Petite Polka Dot Grass are now completely sold out. We have created a new assortment pack of the remaining retiring Petite Polka Dot colors including 4 sheets each of: bubblegum, buttercup, sage, blueberry, and french roast. You'll find this pack under the retiring items category - item number PAPPASR.     

I will post some of the cards I have made in the last month, between house shopping and having a birthday of my own. Unfortunately, too many have been sympathy cards lately, but I also sent my dad a birthday card with a hand-stamped calendar (so he has something from his only daughter every month of this year!) and I will be sure to share that, as well!

Happy Stamping,
