NEW 2011-2012 Catalog & Idea Book!

The excitement is building in anticipation of the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Catalog & Idea Book which goes live on July 1st.
As a demonstrator, I will be able to see the new catalog online one month earlier - on June 1st! At that time I will also place a pre-order for some of the new goodies and catalogs to share with YOU. Place an online order through my website HERE anytime between now and 10:30 PM (Pacific time), May 31st and I will make sure I order a catalog for you! US Residents Only. (Just pay shipping if you are out of my area) Of course, hostesses who hold a workshop after July 1st will also receive the new catalog free so call or email me today to get your workshop scheduled.

A few things to keep in mind when ordering online:

  • Your order will ship directly to you
  • Shipping is a flat rate of $6.95 for orders under $69.50 and 10% for larger orders
  • Clearance Rack items are ONLY available on online orders - don't forget to check out the deals that are up to 60% off
  • My Digital Studio downloads are available online. AND, did you know, they work with other software you may have? Incorporate Stampin' Up stamp images, paper & embellishments in your digital creations!
  • Orders over $150 qualify for Stampin' Rewards (like hostess benefits)
OK, I've told you about May and July. What about June? Also posting online on June 1st will be the 2010-2011 "Retired" list. Stamp sets due to retire will be available on orders placed before June 30th. Any Paper, Ribbon, Embellishments or Tools which appear on the "Retired" list will be limited to stock on hand. Once they are gone, that's it! I encourage you to get online on June 1st to see if any of your favorites are set to disappear and place your order online at that time to stock-up.
If you would like to hostess a workshop in May or June - call me - The Summer Mini catalog is full of fun items and I would love to bring some over to play with.

My First Digital Scrapbook Pages

I received my copy of My Digital Studio last week and soon after watching a video tutorial and a few clicks of the mouse I completed four scrapbook pages! How FUN. Now instead of printing individual photos I can click, click, click and have printed pages delivered to me. I can then just insert them, as is, in an album or add finishing touches of coordinating Stampin' Up! ribbon and/or embellishments before slipping them into the page protectors. I might actually get caught up someday!
For this two-page layout I wanted to showcase as many pictures as possible so I chose a "photo only" template. Picked my background paper from the extensive list, added a few stamp images and the caption and click - all done!

For this special layout I started with a Designer template, added my photos, changed the background colors and caption. It's so easy! For these pages I plan to add ribbon and embellishments when they arrive.

Don't forget - It's National Scrapbooking Month and Stampin' Up! has select stamp sets, My Digital Studio downloads, printing and albums as well as the My Digital Studio demonstrator starter kit on sale!!! Click on the button link on the left side of this page to see what is 30% off. If you are interested in purchasing the My Digital Studio software I encourage you to consider the starter kit - a great value - no strings attached!

Happy Belated Mother's Day

These are the card and gift-box I made for my Mom so, of course, I couldn't show them to you until after she received them. I hope that all of you enjoyed some special moments last weekend with your own Mothers and/or children.
Melon Mambo card stock and designer series paper really make the Very Vanilla Fun Flowers cut with the Big Shot pop! I used a sponge dauber to add Melon Mambo to the flower petals and a Flower brad in the center on the card.
