My Preview Day for Create with Connie & Mary New Catalog Edition!

Today I am pleased to announce to you that I have been asked as a repeat designer for Create with Connie & Mary New Catalog Edition 2012 and the  preview period has already begun. I am super excited to be a part of this design team! I am on schedule as the fourth preview in a line-up of six each week. During the "Preview Week", each design team member has a FREE special project to share. The projects we share during the preview period give you an idea of what you can expect from your subscription to Create with Connie & Mary New Catalog Edition 2012. Keep reading for details, we are also offering BLOG CANDY!

I have a funny little story that goes with my "Preview Project". When we get going on a new edition, we submit our project ideas to Connie & Mary for approval first.........they weren't too sure about this "mouse trap" thing at all.....of course until I explained into more detail and almost said "trust me". The word mouse I think is what did it! So here is my "Preview Project" and yes it is made out of clean and new mouse traps:

MOUSE TRAP MEMO HOLDER
 

During the Preview period we will be offering the “Early Bird Special Subscription” rate of $24.95 for 5 weeks of daily ideas using the stamps and products in the Summer Mini Catalog. This is $5 off the regular 5 week price of $29.95!

BLOG CANDY ALERT!
Leave a comment HERE on my site, at the end of my post, for a chance to win a FREE SUBSCRIPTION to Create with Connie and Mary New Catalog Edition 2012! We will give away SIX FREE SUBSCRIPTIONS!

My preview project focuses on the “Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set”. Using 5 mouse traps and removing a little hardware here and there and adding ink and cardstock.......a new memo board is created! It looks so cute on my refrigerator!

What do you get for your subscription fee? You'll enjoy a 5 week subscription to exclusive samples each day featuring the Stampin' Up! New 2012 Catalog. We'll also have challenges, tutorials, techniques and best of all, PRIZES! Customers and demonstrators welcome!

Hop on over to Create with Connie & Mary to download my free tutorial for this project and don't forget to leave me a comment HERE on my blog below in the "Comments" section. A winner will be chosen in the early a.m. tomorrow morning!
