A Muse Studio 2016-17 Catalogs

Hooray!  The A Muse Studio catalogs go LIVE today… If you read my last post you will remember that A Muse Studio has decided to go digital so catalogs will no longer be printed. Catalogs are free to you, just download to your computer or favorite tablet for easy access and reference anytime!

A Muse Studio Stamps & Dies Catalog

A Muse Studio Essentials Catalog

If you choose not to download, you are welcome to access these catalogs anytime through the main A Muse Studio website or through mine.

A few things to notice…

Stamps & Dies catalog:

  • Many of the Monthly Collection stamp sets from the last 12 months have made it into the catalog! I’ve had a few questions about this so let me explain how this works. The Monthly Collection items are guaranteed during the month they are released. After the month ends, the products become available while supplies last. Sometimes these sets will make it into the main catalog, sometimes they won’t. If you really love a set and want it for your collection, just make sure you purchase it (or earn it free!) during the month released.
  • Just like the flyers and old catalog style, the new catalog shows redlines around stamp images that have a coordinating die.

Essentials catalog:

  • Color palettes are now arranged by color family, not color season! This makes it much easier to visualize which colors to choose and use on  your projects. All products for each individual color are also LISTED within that color swatch to help you with ordering embellishments.
  • The cost of the card stock has increased. A|S hasn’t ever raised prices on card stock and prides itself on using soy-based, eco-friendly ink when producing their card stock. The paper itself is extremely high quality, stationery grade paper and printed with high quality, soy-based inks. Unfortunately it’s actually difficult to find printing companies who print with this type of eco-friendly ink and as a result, they have been forced to raise the price. It’s still a great value, I just wanted you to be aware of this change.
  • There are a few new products to note: Gold and Silver Wink of Stella pens for lots of fun sparkle!, a new 1 x 3.5″ acrylic block; this is a size we did not previously carry, the grid pads are back; these have been out of stock the last few months.

The Monthly Collections will be double the size going forward and loaded with lots of new products every month. There will always be something new to look forward to with A Muse Studio!

The July Monthly Collection is in full swing!  Here are a couple more cards I created using stamp sets from this sweet collection…

A Muse Studio-June Collection 2016…

I’m back!!!!  I know it’s been a while, but I promise I haven’t forgotten my little blog or any of you faithful readers and I certainly haven’t stopped stamping! I’ve been stamping more than ever! 🙂 Today I actually have some A Muse Studio news and I can’t wait to share…

JUNE MONTHLY COLLECTION

The last few months have brought wonderful monthly collections and this month is NO EXCEPTION! I’m really tickled by the June Monthly Collection and have some fun samples to share… you may have already seen some of them, maybe on (CEO) Linda’s Blog?!

 

ASDT_KV_3x4s-1

These are some 3×4 inserts for pocket-style scrapbooking projects but you could stick them on the front of a base card and send as a lovely greeting, too!

ASDT_KV_Flamingo2

Flamingo and pineapple images are everywhere this Spring!! They are on pillows, bathing suits, t-shirts, and tote bags and A Muse Studio is right on trend, bringing you these same images in sweet, versatile stamp sets…

So there are a few card samples using stamp sets from our June Monthly Collection. For more inspiration, you can view and download the flyer right HERE. You can order items from the June Monthly Collection or the Annual Catalog & Idea Book right HERE.

Speaking of the Annual Catalog & Idea Book, it’s almost time for the new catalog reveal, and to make room for new stamp sets some of our old favorites will be retiring…

2016RetiringListFancyBox

The list this year is quite small, but if there’s anything you can’t live without, get it while it’s still available because these products are only available while supplies last! The new catalog will be coming soon. National Conference and Creative Escape for A Muse|Studio Consultants will be held July 8-10, 2016 in Pigeon Forge, TN and I’m thinking the new catalog will be available soon after! I’ll keep you posted!!

A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog 2015

Hooray, the day has arrived and I’m happy and excited to share with you, the 2015 Holiday Catalog from A Muse Studio as well as a little holiday gift-wrapping inspiration…

These tags were created using the Santa Was Here stamp set. Not only a great stamp set for whimsical holiday cards, but also for creating simple tags to help dress up your holiday packages– adding a DIY, handmade element!

ASHolidayCatty2015-2Twine, a small clothes pin and this cute tag are all it takes to dress up a simple box (no wrapping paper required!). The Santa Was Here stamp set has coordinating dies (sold separately) to help your images pop off your project surface.

ASHolidayCatty-3

Holiday cookies, handmade fudge or even a small, non-edible gift fit perfectly in this little, white bag from A Muse Studio. Add a wrap of cherry bakers cording and a cute “chalk board” tag and this gift is ready for giving!

To create the chalk board tag, I used the Fish Tail Tag Die from A|S to cut the stitched tag shape out of A|S onyx card stock. I stamped the “keep calm” image using Versamark ink and dusted it with white embossing powder, then heat set the image with my Milwaukee heat tool to heat emboss.

I’ll have plenty of additional holiday packaging, card-making and DIY party ideas in the coming weeks… check back often or better yet, subscribe to my blog (for free), so you don’t miss one bit of crafty goodness!

We all scream…

Such cute stamp sets in this April Collection and I love the sentiments that come with the We All Scream stamp set…

AprilColl-AMuseStudio_WeAllScream

I used a labels 8 die to cut the white panel for this card, then stamped the ice cream cone, colored it with Copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating We All Scream die set. A few cherry twinkle stickers are all I used to embellish. Clean, simple and easy to reproduce if you need multiples.

The April Collection products are available through the end of April.  Shop at your convenience!
