To love what we do and share what we love

Stampin’ UP!’s Statement of the Heart states, “To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments… in this we make a difference.”

Creativity is anything that you want it to be.   Everyone has it, you just have to believe in yourself.  We are not all perfect, but that is what is so much fun — most of my cards are a little crooked, but that is just me.   No matter how hard I try to line up my sentiments straight, they always out of alignment.

For those of us that prefer to shop online, the Stampin’ UP! Catalogs are just what you are looking for.  Some people like looking at clothes catalogs, but I have always enjoyed going to a hardware store — I know, Stampin’ UP! is not a hardware store, but it has everything you can imagine inside it.  Why would you want to purchase a “flat” card at the grocery store, the post office, or a box store, when you can make it yourself.   The surprise and delight the recipient will see when they open that envelope.

I love looking through the Stampin’ UP! Annual catalog at all the coordinating products is so exciting.  The color choices are endless — Cardstock, Designer Series Paper (DSP), Ink Pads, Refill Ink Bottles, Ribbons, Markers, Embellishments, and more.   Wait until you see the Stamp Sets, Punches, the Framelits and Thinlits that require the Big Shot to Die Cut all the beautiful shapes.   Even looking at the adhesive will get you excited because there are different types for different projects.

If you have never heard of Stampin’ UP! and would like to receive a copy of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, please leave a message with your email address so I can contact you.  This offer is only available within the USA.

Thank you for stopping by.

 

 

 

 

What’s Next?

You are asking yourself, “What’s Next?” now that Sale-A-Bration ended on March 31, 2017.   I hope you were able to enjoy some of the free products that Stampin’ UP! gave away as part of the “for every $50 spent”. My favorite item was the Designer Series Paper, Inside the Lines.   I never have been good at coloring, but using this paper was a lot of fun with different types of materials – whether it was the Watercolor Pencils or the Blender pens with some Refill Inks.

Some dates for you to remember:

10 April 2017 at 1:00 PM (MT), Demonstrators will be able to share sneak peaks of new 2017-2018 Catalog items they saw at OnStage.

10 April 2017 at 1:00 PM (MT), The 2017-2018 Annual Catalog will be posted for Demonstrators ONLY.

10 April 2017 at 1:00 PM (MT), Stampin’ UP! Releases the anticipated Retirement List for Customers and Demonstrators.  I will be posting it to my blog.

10 April 2017 through 31 May 2017 – The Retired products are available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so please do not wait until the last day.    Purchasing items off of eBay is not the smart thing to do as the prices are jacked up a lot.

2 May 2017 – Demonstrators can purchase the new 2017-2018 catalog for customers.  If you have ordered from me during 1 June 2016-1 May 2017, you will receive a  free catalog prior to 1 June 2017.  I will be mailing it out the week of 22 May 2017.

31 May 2017 – Last day to purchase products from the Occasions Catalog and/or the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog as long as the products are still in stock.

1 June 2017 – Annual Catalog goes live to customers.

 

 

 

 

 

Putting Your Own Spin on These

As I am waiting for the Williamsburg Scrapbook Retreat to begin, I am sharing with you the four Scrapbook designs I have created – You will be able to put your own spin on these as they are just samples.   You have the choice to make it your own design by choosing the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP), Photo placers, and the embellishments.

There will be signup sheets for each set of scrapbook pages.

In addition, I will have some retired Stampin’ UP! products available with a special deal — Buy New ~ Get Retired Free!  Or 50% off original price.

I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you might have.

See you tomorrow!
