With last week being the Launch of the new January-June 2022 (JJ22) Mini Catalog, we just had to party! I have a special Catalog Kick-off group on Facebook, where we celebrate every catalog launch in a big way, with lots of demonstrators, giveaway, samples, and more. You can join this group any time, so even though the JJ22 Mini Catalog posts are coming to an end, feel free to join the Facebook group so you can see all the resources I shared the last several weeks and going back to catalog kick-offs from the last couple years.
Probably the biggest way we party over in that group is I go Live in the group 8-12 times with every new catalog, sharing a project with new stamp sets each time. During the JJ22 Mini Kick-off these last few weeks, I've shared 10 projects while Live in the group:
These nine are all really great, but my favorite of all of them is the Mini Album I made on Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers? on my regular business Facebook page.
Having a son who played baseball his whole like up until he joined the Air Force in 2019 and a daughter who has played softball her whole life, too, I'm absolutely in love with the entire Hey Sports Fan! Suite Collection:
One thing I love about Stampin' Up!®'s Suite Collection is that you can order all of it with one handy order number. For this suite, use order number 157896. For just $67.50, you will receive all of the products shown above, which includes 10% off the stamp set and die bundle. And with a $67.50 order, you can choose a Sale-a-bration item, as well! In addition, ordering the entire collection ensures you automatically have products that coordinate, which made putting this album together easy peasy.
I started with two sheets of Night of Navy cardstock, measuring 4 1/4" x 10 1/2". I scored both into thirds, at 3 1/2" and 7" and accordion folded them on those score lines. Then I adhered one panel from each piece together in the configuration the photo shows:
Decorating each page of the Mini Album was the fun part! Using the Designer Series Paper (DSP), Dies, and accessories made it a snap. It's so cool, too, how some of the dies coordinate with the stamp set AND the DSP! I definitely took advantage of that!
When pages were decorated, I closed the album and wrapped a piece of all three Baker's Twines around the entire album and tied them in a bow. To keep those twines in place even when untied, I added a piece of 3 1/4" x 4" DSP to the back of the album.
