New Catalog Product Shares

With the start of a new catalog it is fun to see, touch, and feel all the new products.  But buying everything is way to costly.  So a solution is to participate in a product share.  I’m hosting three product shares for the new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up!

You must register and prepay to be a part of the share.  I plan to place the orders on July 1st at the latest.  If the Ribbon and Embellishments fill sooner I will place those orders in June.  After the products have shipped and I have received them I will divide them up for everyone in the share group and notify you when they are ready.

Something Old, Something New – 3 days!

Only 3 more days!!

3 more days until the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and 2017 Occasions Catalog officially retire!  Hurry it’s your last chance to order products from them – so if you have been waiting do it now!

3 more days until the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog begins!  Lot’s of great new products in this new catalog – my wish list is long!! Everyone can order beginning June 1st at 2:00 PM ET (12 noon MT).  Do you have your catalog yet?  I have copies here for my Stamp Club members and regular class attendees and I’ve mailed out catalogs too.  If you didn’t get yours let me know.  If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator already – I’d love to be yours.

Now for some projects to share with you – I’ve decided to do a few posts to count down these last few days that I’m calling Something Old, Something New.  So here we go – today’s something old project:


Its the lovely Succulent Garden Suite from the Occasions catalog.  The succulents are quite trendy right now.  I know I see them every day on the Ellen show on her table.  And I’ve seen some pretty realistic looking creations made with these stamps, dies and card stock.  Hurry and get these goodies before they are gone – the Oh So Succulent stamp set, Succulent Framelits Dies, Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and cardstock pack.  A couple of the retiring colors are in this suite so be sure to get cardstock and ink in those colors too – Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron.



And today’s something new –


I love this new bundle – Colorful Season Bundle – it’s a stamp set and coordinating Thinlits dies that are perfect for every season of the year.  These are part of a suite called Color Theory – and I used just a little peek of the Designer Paper on this card.  You are going to love this bundle & suite and be able to use them all year long!
