It's a Brown Paper Package Day!!!!

Today the "Man in Brown" showed up or as my friend Jackie calls him "My Boyfriend". This is what I got. This is a special for National Stamping Month that will start on August 18 and go through September 30. It is called the "Every Day Celebration" card kit. I got it for free!!! And, you can too by ordering $60 in stamp sets. Look what came with it. Paper, a stamp set, embellishments, ribbon, distressing ink, foam squares, sponge, instructional brochure and envelopes. It includes everything you need to make 16 cards. The colors are Chocolate, Colonial White, Dutch Blue and Sweet Leaf. In addition to this free product, I received the August "Thanks-a-bration" special for free. The special is a free paper pack. You won't know which one you are going to get. It is a surprise. The paper pack that I got is called Expedition and I love it. It will be perfect for cards and layouts using my animal stamps. I also got the birthday Stamp of the month. In order to qualify for this special, you will need to spend $100. I was able to combine both specials. The $60 that I spent on stamps went toward the $100 that was required for this special. Are you following me?
You can combine these specials this month too. And, here are the stamps that I ordered. I was planning to order them last month, but I am glad that I waited. The stamps are Baby Steps, Picture Perfect, October Word Puzzle, Welcome Baby, and Dogs Life.
And, now for a BIG SURPRISE. SHHHHHH. I'm not suppose to tell. These are some of the goodies that will be offered in the Fall catalog that comes out next month. I received this gorgeous woodland paper pack called "Twitterpated". I will use it for my September Workshop. The workshop includes this paper pack, the stamp set with the cute little porcupine, and chocolate ribbon. The other items that match this paper pack are chipboard buttons, Stick-ease and this adorabable tree stamp called "Grown with Love". I am so into nature and trees right now. I just couldn't wait until September to order. I tried to wait.....but it didn't work.
Now I am off to play with my new goodies. Have a great day, too!!!

I'm jealous. I'd love to order from the new catty but I can't. I have just enough money to order the remaining 5 word puzzles that I need and that's it. Of course that qualifies me for both CC so I can't really complain! lol
