Savvy Shoppers Don’t Do This!

Are you a Savvy Shopper?  Of course you are! There are several things that Savvy Shoppers are always doing; searching for the best bargains, cutting coupons, shopping the sales, crunching the numbers, and so on.  But there is one thing that Savvy Shoppers DON’T do, and that is to PAY FULL PRICE!   

And since I know that you like to get the most Stampin’ Supplies for your money, you are a savvy shopper.  So you are really going to LOVE this promotion offer!   Let’s do it in pictures:

Would you rather buy this:

$99 worth of Stampin' Up

Or would you rather buy this?

$99 Starter Kit

Of course, you want the 2nd option! $125 worth of your choice of Stampin’ Up! products for only $99 plus FREE SHIPPING!!! 

Now what if you got all this too?



So, Savvy Shopper, What Would You Rather?  $99 of supplies for $108.90,   or $197 worth of supplies for $99?

Do I even have to ask?  It’s a no-brainer!  When you purchase the Starter Kit between July 1-31st, you’ll get all these extras thrown in!  Then you’ll get to save a minimum of 20% off all of your future orders, qualify to pre-order from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, and the 2018 Sale-A-Bration and 2018 Occasions catalog, as long as you stay an active demonstrator and meet a modest quarterly minimum in purchases (sales).

Ok, so choose $125 of your favorite Stampin’ Up! products,  click here to purchase the Starter Kit and complete the IDA agreement and you’re done!  All the Free extra’s will be included with our Starter Kit.

Watch These Videos BEFORE you order from the New Catalog!

Stampin’ Up! just released several videos and I think you should watch these videos BEFORE you order from the New Catalog tomorrow.

Online ordering will be shut down from approx. midnight tonight until about noon June 1st (CST) to change over the catalogs and item codes.  So while you’re waiting, watch these videos!

Planners are all the Rage right now, and I’m so excited to share our new Love Today Planner, so I’m sharing this first:

I think the next Bundle is going to be a big hit.  I would order yours right away because I suspect this might be a sell-out!

The next two videos are my favorite bundles that I already have and just LOVE! I know you will as well:

A couple of new products need to be seen to be appreciated. You may have overlooked these items but I’m sure you won’t now that you see how awesome they are!

The next few bundles need no explanation as to why they are going to be so popular:

Everyone needs paper, and this year the choices of Designer Series Paper is just over the top delicous!

Overwhelmed? Don’t know where to start? Kits are great places to start, AND they make great gifts too!

Whew! Binge watching Stampin’ Up! beats Netflix any day, doesn’t it?

Let’s Celebrate…50!

A big milestone birthday is always a reason to celebrate!  And a chance to play with new InColors that just arrived is also a reason to celebrate.  Combine the 2 together, and fun, fun, fun!

This card features the new color Berry Burst.  It’s a fun, bold and vibrant shade that’s not really pink but not purple either.  It’s a fun trendy color and it plays so well with Rich Razzleberry here for the balloons.  I used these colors as an accent against black and silver (after all it is a 50 birthday!).  Let's Celebrate 50!

You’ll notice that I’m using a number of retiring products along with the new In Color.  This time of year, I like to combine the old and the new.  After the new catalog makes its debut June 1st, I’ll stop showing the retiring product.  I like to only show you what you can buy so if you want to recreate my projects you can!

The Number of Years stamp set and Large Number Framelits are carrying over (I die cut the number 50 from Silver Foil sheets).  The Confetti TIEF and the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon PopUp Thinlits dies are being retired.  If you want either of these items; you need to shop my store NOW!  They are only available while supplies last.

The recipient of this card was Sue, my husband’s admin assistant at work.  Her husband threw her a surprise party, and boy, was she surprised!  She was totally caught off guard.  After she regained her composure, she had a really good time.  And so did we!

Well, I have more InColors to show you, and more playing around with Daisy Delight and Color Theory.  Come back again soon.

Want to have new products NOW?

Well, you can get your hands on a new Product Suite beginning today!

The Eastern Palace Suite is a stamp set (21 piece photopolymer) with rich, deep colors and lots of images that layer together.  The coordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies take layering to a new level!  The gold vinyl stickers add an element of richness and opulence to your projects like nothing you’ve seen before! Eastern Palace Suite,

You can download a PDF flyer of the two product bundles you can order beginning today, and the FREE gift you’ll get with each bundle.

Wow!  In all the years I’ve been with Stampin’ UP! I’ve NEVER seen them offer a pre-order to customers (this is a perk normally reserved for demonstrators) or offer the new In Colors to customers before the catalog release date!  So consider yourself privileged to be offered such a promotion!

First,  decide if you want the Eastern Palace Starter Bundle

or the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle I love the rich, deep colors and layering options of the Eastern Palace Suite

Then, go to my online store, and place your order!  Easy Peasy!  Don’t forget to use the May host code CM4QQEWG.

Meet Filomena the Flying Pig!

I’ve been in love with “This Little Piggy” this new stamp set that will be available June 1st.  I chose to name each of the 4 pigs in this stamp set.  I think Filomena is the perfect name for a flying pig.  So without any further adieu, please meet Filomena the Flying Pig!

This LIttle Piggy

If you missed my first blog post using this new stamp set, you can see that here.  That card was my most pinned item during the month of April!

When I saw the sketch for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, I knew I had to use This Little Piggy again, with Filomena the flying pig.  Here’s the sketch that inspired this card.

CAS(E) this Sketch! 219You can visit the sketch challenge to see how other’s used this sketch  here.

She’s just adorable, isn’t she? Here’s a close-up of her – she looks so pleased with herself that she’s flying!  She believed she could, so she put on her wings, and so she did!

Filomenia the Flying Pig

There are two other pigs that you haven’t met you.  I hope to show them to you soon.   In the meantime, please enjoy Daisy and Filomena.  And make room in your craft room for Daisy, Filomena and two others to move in.  They’ll be packed and ready on June 1st!

See you soon.

Game Time! Who’s Going to Win?

Whether you are a football fan or not, chances are you’ll probably end up watching   Super Bowl LI.  On Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 the New England Patriots will play against the Atlanta Falcons.  Kick-off time is 6:30PM

Super Bowl 2017

I’d like to play a little game of my own, complete with a Super Bowl Ring for everyone on the winning team!  Ok, maybe not.  But I do have something you’ll really love!  The Super Bowl is one of the biggest parties around, so why not have a little Party of our own, complete with Party Animal prizes?

One lucky winner will win this embellishment package from the Party Animal product suite.  Sweet, right?  (See that little play on words there?)

Party Animals Embellishment Giveaway, Washi Tape, Emeral Envy 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Party Animal Embellishments

Leave me a comment saying who you think, or hope, will win the Super Bowl.  Then I will choose one person from among the Winning Answers.  That person wins the Party Animal product suite give-away.  No tackling involved!  Easy, and very safe!

Follow me on Facebook as I’ll be posting the score during the game, so you can see how your team in doing (in case you’re crafting and watching the game!)  Then check in after the game to see who the winner is!





Taking Layering to a New Level

Today is the long-awaited for day!  And I’m not just talking about a day off of work!  But today is the day that the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies are back in stock!

145372 Stitched Shapes Framelits

Stitched Shapes Framelits dies – # 145372

The Stitched Shapes Framelit dies were introduced back in November as a teaser of what would be coming in the 2017/2018 Annual catalog to be released in June.  They were so hugely popular that they sold out faster than expected, put on backorder, and then put into a ‘non-orderable’ status  until today.

Why are they so popular, you ask?  What’s the big deal?  Well, I’ll tell you.  This set of 12 (4 each of square, oval and circles) basic geometric shapes have tiny stitching around the edges.  And they pair perfectly with our Layering Framelits in Squares, Ovals & Circles to create perfect layers with just the right amount of detail.    Let’s have a look:  IMG_8339[1]


Hey Chick

See how the tiny stitches makes the shaped so much more ‘finished’ and adds just the perfect finishing touch to the basic shape?  And how the straight and scallop edges of the layering framelits dies coordinate so perfectly?  The Stitched Shapes Framelits and layering framelits are going to take your layers to a whole new dimension.  And the sizes of the shapes coordinate with so many stamp sets; both images & sentiments.

Now, what if you don’t own any of these basic shape framelit dies.  Can you still get the Stitched Shaped Framelit dies?  YES!!  Having both the layering framelit dies in all the shapes, AND the Stitched Shaped Framelits, will be an investment in tools for your paper crafing that you will have for years & years.  The best way to get all of these?  Ultimate Bundle SAB

When you purchase the Ultimate Starter Kit!  You can choose $125 worth of product for only $99 and not pay any extra for shipping!  But during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll get to choose 2 FREE stamps on top of that!  If you purchase this now, you’ll get a 20% discount on all of your purchases until the end of July 2017!  And you don’t ever have to host a workshop or sell anything if you don’t want to.  Get all the benefits of belonging to the Stampin’ UP! family by being a wholesale customer.  Purchase your Ultimate Starter Kit here.

If you choose not the order the Ultimate Starter Kit!  you can still earn FREE merchandise during Sale-A-Bration.  Just place your order here, and for every $50 you can choose one Sale-A-Bration item for FREE.  Please remember to use Host Code 2BUYMMWN when placing an order under $150.
