You're Invited!!!

Help me celebrate the new Fall/Winter Catalog at my Open House!

Saturday, July 21st
312 Clifford Dr.
Vestal, NY 13850

Come and enjoy an afternoon of seemingly endless door prizes, delicious food, great conversation, and a chance to get a look at the new Stampin’ Up! catalog. You will also have the opportunity to make 2 great projects! Plus, anyone who places a qualifying order will be entered into a drawing for a free stamp set! Stamp Club members will be able to pick up their complementary copies of the Fall-Winter catalog, and copies will be available for purchase for all other attendees.

Please RSVP by July 6th to ensure that supplies are available for the 2 projects.
Guests are welcome!

Now, for some important information about the retirement list:

  • Discontinued accessories are available until June 30, or while supplies last.
  • Quantities are limited to stock on hand, so once they're gone, they're gone!
  • Items can move quickly so don’t wait if there is something you have to have.
  • Rememember that this is your last chance to stock up on 2006-2007 In Color ink, card stock, and ribbon. Consider purchasing extra ink refills to extend the life of your In Color pads after these colors are no longer available.
  • Retiring Stamps and Stampin' Around wheels will be available through June 30.

In addition to discontinued items, there are also a number of items that are being offered in a different quantity or assortment in the upcoming catalog. This year, the following items will be offered differently in the Fall-Winter Collection 2007:

Pick A Petal

This set is so much fun! With so many different petals to choose from, the combinations are endless! Here I used the polka dotted petal to form the daisy (cut the tail off to make the center), and then the triple outline petal to form the leaf. Add a stem with the Old Olive marker and a greeting from the "Hugs & Wishes" set, and you are good to go.

Stamps: Pick A Petal, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: Rose Red, Soft Sky, Old Olive
Accessories: Ticket Corner punch, Dazzlin Diamonds, Old Olive marker

Baroque Motifs

When I saw this set, I instantly knew that it HAD to be mine! It is just so darn elegant, and I have to admit, I am a sucker for anything with swirls.

I think this card would be perfect for a wedding - either as the invitation, or the card for the lucky bride & groom. I broke down and used some of my stash of Brushed Gold card stock for the layer on this one. It was the perfect accent to the Gold Glory embossing powder used on the main layer.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Paper: Whisper White, Brushed Gold
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Gold Glory EP, ribbon, heat gun, 1/4 circle punch
Technique: Faux Metal

This card is a bit more whimsical than the last. I used the "Three For You" punch to make the little flowers, and sprinkled Dazzlin Diamonds in the centers to make them stand out. There is also Dazzlin Diamonds on the Groovy Guava swirls. This card is very sparkly in real life.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Holidays & Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava
Ink: Groovy Guava, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Dazzlin Diamonds, Three For You punch

New Stuff!!!

One of the perks of being a SU demonstrator is that you get a chance to pre-order merchandise. I just got my box of goodies yesterday, and I have been busy playing with all of my new stuff. Can I just tell you that the new In Colors are SO much better in person?!? I ordered an assortment of the cardstock so I could determine which colors I like - I find it hard to tell what they really look like from the pictures in the preview brochure. Now I am wishing I had purchased all of the ink pads instead of just Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and Groovy Guava. The Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate are just gorgeous, and River Rock is going to make a wonderful neutral. *sigh* I'm making myself be good, so I'll just have to wait til my July 2nd order to get the rest of the colors.

Now on to the part you've been waiting for - samples made with the sets from the Fall/Winter Preview...

Baby Announcement

I made this as a gift for my cousin's baby shower. I hope she likes it! I used "Bundle of Joy" from the Spring Mini for this project. The bear and giraffe are just so cute! I actually broke out my Stamp-a-ma-jig for this project - it would have been impossible to line up the swirls without it. The announcement part in the middle can easily be popped out so she can use this as a picture frame if she prefers.
