It's Epic!

A couple weeks ago at retreat my dear friend Frankie (Hi Frankie!) made a wonderful card that I immediately wanted to CASE the layout.  Creating with friends is so fun and inspiring.  I took the plunge and cut my precious This and That Epic Day DSP.  It's the DSP that coordinates with the This and That book and washi tape.  The DSP is trendy and a must-have in your stash.

Change the color of the vintage faceted designer buttons by placing a small circle of any cardstock or DSP behind the button.  Today is the LAST day you can get the This and That bundle at a 15% discount. This and That products, including the Epic Day DSP will be available in the 2013-2014 catalog, but never again at this reduced price!

Have a great day,

Sweet Deets (all supplies Stampin' Up!):

New Kit!!

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!

Another one for Mom

Still working on my Mother's Day card (Hi mom! This is not the one you'll get!).  This one uses MDS to create the quote panel.

I love making frames and this one was created by cutting an Apothecary Accent Framelit and keeping the negative, embossing it and laying it over the quote panel.  It's popped up with dimensionals.
Secret Garden framelits add some details without stamping.  

Have a great day! I'm off to see the Reds play ball with friends!
Don't forget Mother's Day is May 12th!

Here's another great set that's retiring!  Yikes! That's a scrap of cardstock that's folded over in faux ribbon pleats.

I love this Designer Series Paper and this color combination!  Good thing Pool Party is sticking around.  It looks great with Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede.

It's been an eventful week.  As promised, here's our weekly summary:
(1) Did you see the Retiring Accessories and stamp list?

In addition, with the release of the retired list, some of you may be wondering which Christmas stamps will still be available. Don't cry or pout, we've gotcha covered!

  • Greetings of the Season Stamp Set (available in French)
  • Jewish Celebrations Stamp Set
  • More Merry Messages Stamp Set (available in French)
  • Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set

Can you handle more good news? These sets will still be available during the 2013-2014 catalog year. They will not be featured in the catalog, but will be available in the Online Store and OEX. 

(2) Thinking of joining my team?  You can get even more product ($155 worth) for your $99 investment PLUS you can instantly get access to view the 2013-2014 catalog and put items from the Sneak Peek! You personally hand pick your product; anything you choose.  As demonstrators, we purchase new stuff early so I have samples for you ahead of time.  Did you know that?  It's great being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  

(3) Want a sneak peek of something NEW?  Check out this!  (Yep, I got to see this in Baltimore!)  Want ANOTHER sneak peek?  This one you can OWN now.  A Round Array is an awesome set that coordinates with our circle and scallop punches!  And I love coordination!  I used this set for my Baltimore Regional Swaps.  

(4) Sent with Love bundle will not be available after April 30th!  Don't delay placing your order!   

(5) C-U-T-E single stamps will be around a few more months! 

(6) Introducing This and That!  It can be a journal, a scrappy book, a brag book.  The sky is the limit with this trendy kit. I just received mine and I can't wait to put it to use!  Thru April 30th you can save 15% when you purchase the bundle. PS, the heavy bound book is my favorite, closely followed by the washi tape.  :)

  • Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
  • Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
  • Twelve gray envelopes

Dude, You're Welcome! Kit

Visit the Online Store to learn more about this exciting new kit, then contact your male customers (or their wives) and let them know the answer to their "I forgot my wife's birthday!" dilemma is here!
Watch the video, I want the #&)()!@ stamp to add to MY collection :)

(9) Photopolymer stamps!

What makes them so great?

  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.

  • They are clearly a great choice.
