If you do not have a New catalog yet let me know and I will get one to you.
The first thing I am ordering TODAY is the Love Today Planner Kit! I can not wait to get my hands on this and begin working with it. I do plan on doing some videos with it.
One of the important things I want you all to remember throughout the month of June is Stampin’ Up’s We Heart Hosts promotion. If you have a $350.00 workshop in June, you will receive an extra $35.00 in Stampin’ Rewards! This is huge!
It is that time of year when the old catalog is going out so there is the retired list. The new catalog is coming June 1st and there is so much excitement about the new products. Stampin’ Up! has released the Eastern Palace Suite early as two bundles that are amazing deals and have three of the new In Colors in it!
What are you most interested in? Do you need a new catalog? Do you want to see this new bundle in action?
Let me know what I can do for you.
To see the amazing deals click on the picture. It will take you to my store.
I did this card for a sketch challenge with my Glimmer Gals team. It was a lot of fun! This is the most fun stamp set right now. It is called A Nice Cuppa. The sayings make it very versatile and it is a unique collection of designs! It has matching framelits! Stampin’ Up! thinks of everything!
I love how the colors all coordinate so well! I know I will miss Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss! I have used them so much! Did you see the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon? It is soooo…pretty!
I used FREE Designer Series Paper also! Who doesn’t love FREE! How did I get it you ask? Well it is Sale-A-Bration time! Any time you put in a $50.00 order until March 31st you get to choose a FREE product out of the Sale-A-Bration Catalog! Stampin’ Up! just added new FREE products also!
I want to remind you all that these colors will be retiring in May. So before the retired list comes out in May, you want to make sure you get all your refills and supplies early. I have seen this happen ever year, they sell out fast. What better time then now to stock up because of Sale-A-Bration!
June is coming fast! What that means is we will have new In Colors and these will be going away! I have truly loved them! Even though we call Blackberry Bliss, Blackberry Mess, it is truly one of my favorites! Also I will be lost without Lost Lagoon!
So if these are some of your favorite colors or you have ordered them, then don’t forget to go and order refills, or cardstock! you can go to my store and order these now. Once they are gone we won’t be able to replace any of it! I have seen it happen to many times where the colors sell out once the retired list hits! That normally comes out in early May!
I will be featuring some of the cards we have done with these amazing colors in the weeks to come! So watch for those!In Color
Today is the day! You can shop from the new Catalog! However Stampin’ Up! has made today so you can shop from all three catalogs! So if there is something you wanted still from the Occasions Catalog, or the 2013-2014 annual catalog you can still get it! But this is for today only!
Some of you have not received your catalog yet, so you can download a copy here!
Another awesome deal Stampin’ Up! has this month is the Starter Kit. If your wish list is as long as mine this is the deal for you! When you purchase your Starter kit you already get $125.00 worth of product for $99.00 and you do not pay shipping or tax! But this month June 2nd – June 30th you will also get to choose TWO FREE STAMP SETS! This is a really good deal. You then will also get a 20% discount on any future orders that you place. Why not give it a trail run today? There is no commitment.
NEW CATALOG LAUNCH AND BOGO SALE!
I also wanted to remind you my New Catalog Launch and BOGO Sale is this coming Saturday, June 6th at 10:00 am till 4:00 pm. It is a come and go as you please.
We will have Make-n-Takes with all new product, there will be food, door prizes, and the BOGO Sale! Oh did I mention Door Prizes!
For those of you who do not know a BOGO sale is: come in and look at all my retired product. If you find a few things you like we will total it for you. Say you find $25.00 worth of stuff, you then will purchase $25.00 worth of product out of the new Catalog and then get what you choose for free!
This is the first time I have participated in a blog hop so I am really nervous and have had quite a few problems with my blog getting this to load and work!
I want to thank Sharon Armstrong for inviting me to do this! Blogging is something I will admit I really need to work on. So she has challenged me! Thank you Sharon For pushing me!
The first card I want to showcase is a technique card. I guess you could say I am a technique junkie! I just love adding techniques to the cards I come up with. I am showcasing Shadow Stamping for this technique. Shadow stamping is done normally on a darker cardstock. You first stamp with a whisper white craft ink, dry it and then using the stamp-a-ma-jig stamp in the same color as cardstock which in this case was Early Espresso, move the image a little to the left or right and then stamp again. It leaves such a nice look!
The next card is a card I did for a swap. It is done with the Sheltering Tree set. I love this set! I just can not get enough of it! I also used the wonderful Sale-A-Bration Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP.
Ok it is time for the questions part. Here I go.
What am I working on?
Right now I am prepping for my upcoming classes this month. Also I am working on my customer appreciation event that I will be holing at the end of the month.
How does my work differ from others?
Well I am not sure that it truly does. I do love to send out my newsletters by snail mail instead of using social media. I feel it is more of a personal touch.
Why do you create what you do?
I love what I do! I love being around others and watching the joy in their face when they create a beautiful simple card. It gives us a wouderful time to just let go and realize we each are creative in our own ways!
How does your creative process work?
I love to use sketches! I find a sketch and then chose the stamp set. The colors are next which is one reason I truly love Stampin’ Up! everything coordinates! So there is not much to do after that except stamp and put your card together!
It is that time of year again! The retirement list is here! And to sweeten the deal Stampin’ Up! is offering Free Shipping! Remember all the 2012-2014 In Colors will be retiring so if you need any of the cardstock, reinkers, markers. ribbon. or ink pads get them fast as they go the quickest! The colors are Gumball Green, Primrose Petal, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple.
Get it while they last. Stampin’ Up! has also told us that for the first time ever they will not be making more stamps so if there is a stamp set you want don’t hesitate.
