More Bright Blossoms

Can you tell I really like this set.  When I first saw this set, I again wasn't that impressed.  Then I started seeing cards made through our demonstrator website.  Then I came along some notes I took at convention at one of the sessions I attended.   I started thinking about what I learned...

The Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog begins June 1 and will offer over 200 pages of card samples, papercrafting ideas, new products and the reveal of the 2012-2014 In Colors.  I'm personally offering a special promotion to get the catalog to you FREE and ASAP.

  • Place an on-line order thru me of $50 or more (before shipping and tax) between April 25 and May 15.   
  • I'll reward you with a FREE catalog and FREE PRIORITY MAIL delivery (2-3 business days) so that you get it ASAP.  Your catalog will arrive separately from your product order.
  • Be sure to log into your Stampin' Up! on-line profile and update your address and contact information if they will change by 5/15.
  • This is not a Stampin' Up! company promotion.  It is a personal promotion for customers making a qualifying on-line purchase thru me.

Just FYI and before you panic (like I did when I saw the Retired Accessories list and saw most markers retiring and all ink pads retiring), please read on.  I thought there was another Color Renovation going on.  I did panic.  But that's not the case!  In the new catalog markers will be mostly sold in groups only.  A few colors will be sold individually.  So if you want a few markers, now is the time to order them.

As far as the ink pads go, they are re-configuring the pads and replacing the felt pads with foam pads.  The outside style of the ink pads will remain the same (allowing you to store the pads upside down), but the new foam pads allow for easier inking and a more uniform end result.  I'm thrilled.   I will most likely use my older style for some time until I can slowly get the newer ones.  So, again, don't panic.

Most of the ribbons will be retiring.  Stock up now with your favorites.  Buttons, brads, punches, big shot dies, etc. are all on the Accessories List.  AND, SOME OF THE ITEMS ARE DISCOUNTED UP TO 70% OFF!!!   These items must be ordered online only and ASAP.  My suggestion to you is to click on the above lists, make a list of the item numbers you would like, then go to my online store and click on "Shop Now".  Enter all the numbers and check out as soon as you can.  Once the items are gone, they're gone.

Happy Easter

Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days here in SC.  Not too cold, not to hot, just perfect.   I started the day with a 5K walk, then to the Lakehouse to watch the "grandkids" of Sun City collect hundreds of eggs.
