Stampin' Up has always had the Statement of the Heart but they have now updated it and it is the Statement of My Heart. In the Share What You Love Suite (available now to demonstrators and to everyone beginning May 1), there is a new stamp showcasing this new statement. I wanted to showcase this stamp and create a decor item for my craft room. Here is that framed piece:
I found this frame at Hobby Lobby and thought it would match the Designer Series Paper in the Suite. I chose a background of MInt Macaron (yay! It's coming back in the new catalog) layered over Tranquil Tide. The lacy oval is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. This laser-cut paper is gorgeous and very delicate. You get 8 sheets of paper in 2 different designs and one design is a sheet with 6 different patterns that can be cut out for card fronts--easy peasy! NOTE: This Laser-Cut paper will not be available until June 2 when the catalog goes live.
I stamped the Statement onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then layered the lacy oval on top. I colored in the heart using ink from the top of my Rich Razzleberry ink pad.
All of the flowers surrounding my piece are fussy cut from different sheets of paper in the Share What You Love DSP (this paper is more expensive but is a heavier weight and comes with 24 sheets of 12 x 12 paper instead of the usual 12). There are loads of pearlized accents on this paper! This year is the 30th anniversary of Stampin' Up! and the gift for 30 years is pearls! So there are a lot of pearl accents, colored pearls and more in the new catalog.
Beginning May 1 (that's this Tuesday!) you will be able to purchase several bundles showcasing the Share What You Love Suite. Each bundle comes with something free!
Here is a video showcasing these bundles

The Pearlized Doilies are a pearlized white on one side and plain on the back. I have sponged color on the back side to use on cards needing some color so they are very versatile.
To get the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Paper you have to purchase the Gotta Have It All Bundle. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until June 2, when the new catalog goes live. And the Statement of My Heart Stamp will not be available except in this bundle. Once the ordering period (May 1-31) is over, this stamp will not be available.
In a hurry to get those new In Color stamp pads? You can preorder them now before the catalog goes live on June ! You can purchase the 5 new In Color ink pads in a bundle for $33.75 and save 10%!
Check back in a day or two and I'll be sharing the thank you cards I am sending out to my customers for their orders this past month. They will all be featuring this gorgeous paper.
This month's host code HY7EQVS3 will be ending and I will close out the order on May 2. If you place an order of below $150 and use this host code, you will be entered to win a new Grapefuit Grove stamp pad (if you order one of the above bundles and will already be getting the ink pad, I will send you something else of greater value).
