CATTY CRUISE BLOG TOUR

Ahoy, me Hearties! WELCOME to our maiden voyage on the Catty Cruise! You may have sailed here from the previous stop on the treasure map at the amazing Lynn Weiss' LW Designs (her Peace Within projects are AMAZING, aren't they?!), ... or you may begin your tour here! There's no beginning or end to the twelve blog stops.

Grab a deck chair! Our crew of twelve talented crafters are featuring cards, 3D items, scrapbook pages, etc., using products unveiled in the newest '09-'10 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, aka Catty.

You'll get to the next port by clicking on the port hole at the end of this post. But, if we somehow lose you along the way, you can always rejoin us by visiting our home port, Catty Cruise Line.

The products I chose to feature from the new Catty include the Level 3 Hostess Stamp Set, The More The Merrier and Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. I used a few other new items from the new Catty too! ... Autumn Traditions Designer Paper and Holiday Lounge Designer Paper.
