Shop Catherine Pooler Designs Today!

Hey all! It's a brand new day and Autumn is coming and the kids are headed back to school!  Let's get into our creative spaces with some new and fabulous stamps and dies!


There is lots of Stamp of Approval goodness in there along with Catherine's own personal line of stamps & dies called Catherine Pooler Designs.


Every product that was in the first four SOA Collections is there:
* Friendship
* Holiday Magic (except the Holiday Flourishes stamp set)
* Young at Heart
* Beautiful World

PLUS we have a surprise for you!  Catherine has created an exclusive new die set to go with the beautiful "Wonderful Wreath" stamp set just released in the last SOA collection, the Lovely Notes Collection!  It's designed to fussy cut out the glorious new wreath and all the accompanying shapes in the stamp set.  How awesome is that!?!  So if you already have the Lovely Notes Collection then this die is for you!  And if you don't... no worries!  The contents of the Lovely Notes box will be found in the store very soon!


So I thought I'd show off a few of the dies in that new die set today and share a brand new card using lots more SOA fun...

On my card not only did I feature the brand new "Wonderful Wreath Dies" but I also used Catherine Pooler Designs' "And Dies" and the fun "Bright Baubles" stamp set released in the Holiday Magic Collection made by Neat & Tangled.

A wreath isn't just for the holidays... it's for all year round!  Including birthdays... PLUS it works with all kinds of other stamps too!

For the above card I used the small leaves from the "Eva's Favorite Flowers" stamp set from Winnie & Walter and then used a few other stamp from the set to complete my image.  I also used the corresponding "Eva's Favorite Flowers Dies", the fun birthday sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps' set "Young at Heart" and the sweet birthday dies form the "Birthday Journal Card Dies" from SugarPea Designs.  All of the above stamps and dies will be on sale in the shop!

THE ADVANTAGES OF THE STAMP Of APPROVAL BOX...

Even though you can get all these products individually in the shop, it’s still “better” to get the Stamp of Approval collections... you get the free PDF, plus you get loads of products for $97 (the last box was retail $130 and the holiday is $135!!!) and it’s like a little present to yourself because it comes in a sweet box with some notes from Catherine!
