Good Monday Morning everyone!  I am back from a short relaxing Spring Break trip with my family and ready to get busy playing with my new preview items from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog.  And I have exciting news to share – I am once again going to be a guest designer – this time it is Create with Connie & Mary – Summer Edition.  Read below for more details – I hope you’ll join the fun!

It’s here! We are launching our third edition of Create with Connie & Mary, where we will be featuring products from the amazing Summer Mini Catalog.  Yes…there is a slight name change.  Mary Brown, Sr. Design Team member has joined Connie on the Create Team.  This Edition we will again have our wonderful guest designers Monika Davis and Kerin Sylvester returning.

Early Bird Savings…$19.95…save $5.00 off regular subscription price of $24.95 US!

From April 12 – 24, Create with Connie & Mary is featuring two early bird projects (just to give you a taste of what we do) followed by a week of FABULOUS Preview week projects.  Once Preview Week is over though, you must be a subscriber to continue to enjoy the GREAT ideas!

The Summer Edition will run 4 weeks from May 2 – May 30.

Each week we will focus on a different collection of products that can be found in the Summer Mini Catalog. Our goal is to show you some new and unique ways to use Stampin’ Up!’s fabulous products. EVERY DAY there will be a new project posted and EACH WEEK there will be AT LEAST TWO TUTORIALS available for you to download. Our exclusive projects will include cards, scrapbook pages and 3D items – the quick and easy ones and the more complex larger projects.

In addition, our Preview Week begins April 25, we will be focusing on the Elements of Style stamp set, Presto Patterns Designer Paper, Mostly Vintage Stencil, and the Rough Type Alphabet Stamp Set. During this time period, the site will be open to everyone, but starting on Sunday, May 2nd, only those who have subscribed will have access to the site.

Each week we will also issue a Create with Connie & Mary Creative Challenge. This Edition we will be doing something a little different in our challenges.  Each time you post an entry to the challenge for that week, you will receive an entry into our drawing at the end of this subscription.  Two winners (at the end of the subscription) will receive $75 Stampin’ Up! merchandise gift certificates!   An additional two people will be chosen to win FREE registration in the NEXT round of Create with Connie & Mary.  Our Creative Challenges will be posted early Saturday morning.  To participate, you need to enter the week of the challenge.  The winners will be announced Saturday, May 30th!  Although the Challenge posts will be shared on our Design Team’s personal blogs, only those subscribed to Create with Connie and Mary will be eligible to win the Creative Challenge.
