All day yesterday, I was like a puppy at an adoption booth in the town square on Saturday morning...excited, waiting, hoping! I was waiting for that big brown truck to deliver my very first order since the new catalog went live on 6/1! I could not wait to get my hands on that pretty day planner and the Coffee Break Suite products.
When I heard that familiar sound of the big heavy truck coming up the street beside my house, the puppy in me was skittering around all over my cage! If I wasn't certain that I would scare him away forever, I would have hugged that UPS driver, who surely must be Santa in another season.
Anyway, I was heartbroken when I realized that I would not be seeing that beautiful planner binder for another few days because I had mistakenly ordered the REFILL kit instead of the planner itself. The refill has everything the Love Today Planner Kit has.....except that beautiful binder! But our great Stampin' UP! demonstrator and customer support staff will have me smiling in no time!
But, even with the let down of not having the whole planner at my fingertips, which I had planned to share with you today, I was still like Captain Jack Sparrow and his band of pirates, as I was sitting on my sunroom floor rummaging through the big brown box and salivating over all the pretty treasures!
Are those colors not the most gorgeous colors to play around with until fall and the holidays? I have been dreaming of the Caribbean ever since I opened this box....and these are not even the new In-colors for 2017-2019!. These are the ones that will retire NEXT year! But the ribbons are all brand new for 2017-2018 and they are so pretty!
But....on to the Coffee Break! I went through my Delightful Daisy designer series paper so fast, that I ordered more. It is so pretty, I use it all the time. So, I prepared myself this time and ordered plenty of Coffee Break designer paper. And because I messed up and ordered the wrong thing for my planner, which I planned to post about today....I decided I would share my coffee wth you! So.....for today and tomorrow, I will be hosting a little Scavenger Hunt on my Facebook page and hope you will play along. Tomorrow afternoon, I will draw a name out of the pot, of all who participated and send the winner a pack of Coffee Break Designer Paper--24 sheets of double-sided paper, 4 of each combination, 6 different combinations, 12 different designs! And I love to throw little sweet surprises in with my prizes....so there will be one included in this little giveaway as well.
You don't scrapbook? Well, even though this is scrapbook size paper (12x12), it not only makes eye-popping scrapbook pages or accents on a page, it is delicious on the simplest little gift as embellishment or packaging and really perks up a plain little card (handmade or store-bought). So, don't think you won't use this paper just because you don't scrapbook! I don't scrapbook!
Hop on over to my Facebook page and check in between now and 6pm tomorrow, follow the instructions to get your name in the drawing for a pack of this yummy designer paper that is one element of the Coffee Break Suite! You might just like this paper so much you decide you must cook up a Stampin' Up workshop party to earn that Coffee Cafe Bundle!!!!
