New Catalog

Hello All!

I'm back from visiting my folks and many childhood friends in Florida. It was a blast and a half! While I'm still adjusting to the dry heat and time difference, I was so excited to crack into the paper version of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!


I've been able to view it in digital form for a few weeks now and love it. The way that the products are highlighted with the large close-up pictures just makes me happy. Ordering will not be available until noon Mountain Standard Time.

My Way: Starter Kits

Hello, All!

There's so much going on lately, it's almost hard to keep up with! This is especially so since I'm leaving to visit my folks in Florida for a whole three weeks starting tomorrow! I'm going to have my new stuff sent to their place because we can't have it sitting at home that whole time. Ha ha!

Are you keeping up with all of the retiring stamp sets and accessories? Don't forget to grab those favorites before they are gone! Click here to shop now!

As the company gets back to basics, we focus more on the traditional papercrafting and the up and coming digital technology. If that scares you, don't worry! There are so many tutorials popping up, fresh products released weekly, and you can always make hybrid (combine the two) projects! They just announced a new version of their software: My Design Studio 2! Click on the links to find out more about upgrading or all the goodies you're going to get with just buying the software.

Don't forget about the great things going on in the meantime with the free 30-day express trial! As the signs say, please contact me if you're interested in finding out more details!

Last year, Stampin' Up! was all about growth in our business and within ourselves: "+one". It had fabulous results. This year, we're all about the "My Way". Nothing screams this more so than to be able to fully customize your Demonstrator Starter Kit that now only costs $99 to join! That is truly amazing and I'm a little bit jealous. I was fortunate enough to heavily customize my kit but wow! Click on the link above to read about it or click the image below to see suggestions of which products to add to your kit.

Thanks to my status as a demonstrator, I got a sneak peek at some of the products weeks ago, to order some of the new basics last week, and I'm currently downloading the new catalog right now! I'll be putting in an order for new goodies once I get to Florida and that order will include my complimentary hard copy. I cannot wait!

Last Chance- Update

Hello All!

Back with more information! The Retiring Accessories List and Retiring Definitely Decorative List (both while supplies last/ until May 31st) have come out! You can look back on my last post or go here for the Retiring Stamps List (until May 31st) too. Or GO SHOP NOW!

Honestly, there is not as much products discounted as I hoped there would be. They are doing away with 12x12 textured cardstock, a lot of craft inking and Stampin' Write markers, but don't worry about the Classic Stampin' Pads retiring. They are reformatting them to be better than ever! I think we'll all be pleased by the changes. They'll still unlock and flip but the quality and ease of use are improving. Many wheels, extra types of mediums, texture plates, and ribbon are also going away. There's just so much to take in, you're better off strapping down with a cup of coffee and pouring over the pages.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions!

Last Chance- Early!

Hey all!

With Sale-a-bration season over, what do we have to get us all excited again?

Retiring stamps!

Okay, bear with me.

As hard as it is to part with favorites or stamp sets that have been on our wishlists for the past year, chance can be good! I started telling you about the various catalog changes last month, but want to make sure that you guys understood that the main Idea Book & Catalog is ending a month earlier (May 31st!) than normal thanks to the new release scheduling. It's be more focused on core year-round-friendly products while the remaining two mini catalogs (Occasions and Holiday), will be bigger and better than ever.

The moment the Almighty Retiring Stamps Lists are released, I attack my catalog and mark off everything that's being discontinued. The ones that are selected to go are often based on sales and how long they've been around. If it's an all-time favorite, chances are they are already in your growing collections. So, fresh content is a good thing! It's time to take into consideration what you've been saving up for before it's gone (also May 31st)! Clicking on the image below or on the link to check out the store. They will automatically update when the Last Chance Accessories Lists are released!

Speaking of, those lists will go live on Wednesday, April 25th and those products will only be available until May 31st or while supplies last. I'll update you with more information soon!

My Apologies

Hello All!
I know it's been a while since I've posted but I wanted to just come out and say that we're dealing with a lot of personal issues offline right now so this blog is being put back on the back burner indefinitely. I will try to come and post projects I'm working on when I get the chance, but I'm sure you understand. Thank you for your support this past year! It has meant so much to me.

Almost Spring

Hello All!

March is actually here! While the weather wavers back and forth between a few freezing nights and deliciously warm days, I wanted to share a simple card set I made that reminds me of both winter and spring.

I have been exploring a lot with monochromatic color schemes in my projects because it gives such a clean feeling almost instantly!


All Whisper White on Whisper White smooth card stock with accents of card stock and ink from the 2011 In Colors and the Fabulous Florets stamp set.

There are exciting and big changes coming to the catalogs this year and I cannot wait to share more about it with you as the information rolls out. Stampin' Up! is discontinuing their Summer Mini catalog but this is in combination of add more content to our Occasions and Holiday Minis! They will also be lasting longer as well. The 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog will be condensed as the company focuses more on what we do best: papercrafting! The great news about this is that they are making big changes and make them easier for me to mail them out to you. That also means that the current main catalog will be retiring a month earlier than usual but more about that later!

Have you put in more orders for the Sale-a-bration event yet? It ends this month! Stock up on those free goodies!
