Tuesday Updates

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Have you missed me? Sorry I haven’t been blogging that much, since my diabetes crisis last month I am taking time to exercise and eat healthy everyday… boy does that take much more time than I thought. I was attempting to walk in the woods near me, but too buggy/muddy and I didn’t want to ruin my new sneakers. I joined Planet Fitness and enjoy going there, but sometimes I just want to think and not be surrounded by all that noise. This is a new favorite walking spot- outdoor track at a local high school, love it!



Thanks for all your good wishes- this new life style, combined with Plexus nutritional products, have really helped me more than I thought possible. (let me know if you want to know more about Plexus).

Onto some timely news about Stampin’ Up!:

We are in our final week of the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and final week of the 2015 Occasions Catalog… time sure does fly, doesn’t it? Some people have said they are confused about the dates of the catalogs… Stampin’ Up! is trying something new this year. For one day only- next Tuesday June 2nd- you can order from ALL THREE CATALOGS! This is a big deal in case you are trying to get your last chance retiring items, or want to save some pennies (slight price increase in the new catalog), or you have a big order and want to earn under the old hostess rewards (as of June 3rd, the new rewards take effect). So this is a busy transition day, and the first chance you will have to order from the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

It’s not too late to get the retiring stamps and some accessories are still available, and marked down! Click here for the most up to date options:


Today also launches the new “Weekly Deals”- I seriously love how Stampin’ Up! picks out some things I “need” for 25% off! Here are the new deals- I have an order going in this week, let me know if you need any of these too:



(The Large Kraft Grid Journals are awesome and if you buy them now, you can use them for party favors, or holiday gifts! they are NOT carrying over to the new catalog, so get them while they last!)


Also- I want to remind you of the half off deal for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers! That’s right, subscribe by June 10th (midnight Mountain time) and you will only pay $10 for June and July’s awesome craft kits in the mail! I seriously LOVE Paper Pumpkin kits- absolutely everything you need for a fun creative outlet is included (well, except scissors, you have a pair of those, right?) These kits are a hit with children, people who have limited space, seniors, and those just starting with card making/papercrafting. Oh, and people who are TOO BUSY to craft, these kits are perfect- open, stamp, assemble and you have a card or project all ready to go! (Less time than driving to the Hallmark Store for sure!) Plus- you can use the stamps over and over- they come with a clear block and you can decorate other cards or envelopes or make your own stationary! The possibilities are endless!



Ready to give it a try?? Did I tell you that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee?? We are that sure that you will LOVE these kits!  Just click this link and you will be able to sign up to receive Paper Pumpkin with me as your demonstrator:


The May Kit is so awesome- 6 fun birthday cards and 6 gift bags!! I hope this will be available as a refill kit! (we have lots of our past kits still available for purchase and many have refill kits- no stamps or ink, but excellent if you want to duplicate the cards/projects with the ink/stamps you already have! Have a favorite kit? Ask me how to get a refill- I’m happy to help you!)

bogo sale

Last but not least- I want to remind you of our HUGE BOGO SALE- We are up to 7 members of my team selling our retired Stampin’ Up! and other Craft Supplies to YOU! The way our BOGO works may be different from others- here’s how we do it: Come to the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY 12027 across from Gil’s Garage) on Saturday June 6th from 9:30 am to 1 pm. You will shop around the room from all of our tables full of retired goodies. Go to the check out table, we will give you the total of “FREE” NEW catalog products you get to pick out- you will go to the catalog table and will get to pick out anything you want equal to what you just picked out of the retirement sale- that’s truly a Buy One Get One Free deal that’s too good to pass up!! Then we add tax and shipping to the total of new products you picked out, and you pay us- cash customers will get to pick out from a free box (while supplies last), we also accept local checks, and credit cards. You can have your items shipped directly to you for an extra $6.95 (or 10%, depending on your total). You take home the retired goodies, and we will order and deliver the new items once they come in (around June 16-19th depending on UPS shipping time from Utah). We are so excited and hope you are too!!




Well, that’s it for now- I’ve got my Stamp a Stack tonight, going to go wash the grapes! Thanks for reading my blog today, let me know if you have any questions!

Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Favorite Retiring Stamp Set

creative hop


Hi There Stamping Friends,

Our blog hop theme this month is “Favorite Retiring Stamp Set”… well, I couldn’t pick just one to show you here today, in fact since I planned our stamp camp last Saturday around this very topic, I thought I would share all 5 of our cards. We called it “Last Chance Stamp Camp” and had a wonderful turnout of stamping friends!

Here are the cards that we made:

First up was a card I designed to use for my own Father’s Day card this year:


This card features the retiring stamp set “Walk in the Wild” and I paired it with the retiring modern label punch as well. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.


Next card we featured was a card appropriate for a graduation or we had an alternative card for a simple congratulations:





The “Way to Go” stamp is in the set called Bravo, and it is not retiring (the Bravo set is carrying over to the next catalog). The class of 2015 is retiring, last chance to get it is June 2nd!




Sadly, Petal Potpourri is also retiring, June 2nd will be your last chance to get this gorgeous set! It has a coordinating punch called “Flower Medallion Punch” (the punch is returning in the new catalog because it coordinates with one of the flowers in the stamp set “Crazy for You” which is also carrying over.) The beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper has been one of my favorites, and I’m using it for my Stamp-and-Sip event on May 29th (I have only 2 spots left).


This card is the one I used to advertise the event, and I think everyone said it was one of their favorites:




This was a card I was inspired by Pinterest, but I couldn’t find the original creator… The set “By the Seashore” is retiring and I realized I had never used this set in a class at all. I also used Wetlands (the gulls) and Sassy Salutations (these two sets are continuing into the next catalog). No one complained about fussy cutting all the seashells out. fun, fun!

Last but not least, I also realized I had never featured in a class a stamp set that was part of a bundle called “Adventure Awaits” that was paired with the awesome mini stack of designer series paper called Adventure Bound. The stamps spoke to me, and I had to have them, and originally planned to use them for Father’s Day cards. This card was a case (Copy and Share Everything) by Mary Fish. I had two unopened packs of the Maritime designer series paper. ** Bonus- this DSP is on sale until Monday 5/25 in our “Weekly Deals”… get it for 25% off retail price! Awesome-sauce!!






So this was the full line up, I also had my downline make these cards at our team get together last week. I find it helps if they’ve made the cards, and then they can pick the card table they want to run at Stamp Camp…. and I’m so blessed that four of my downline were able to come and help run a table at the stamp camp, (shout out to Judy, Sharon, Audrey and Laurie)! Many thanks ladies!!




So if you’re interested in purchasing any of these retired items, they retire on June 2nd, but I wouldn’t wait to the last day… if I were you 😉

Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for our next BOGO sale- Saturday June 6th in Burnt Hills, NY, hope you can make it!


In case you are eager to get any of these awesome “retiring products” now, I’ve set up a hostess code for you: NNFYQQHP

Want Some New Ribbon?


It’s Time for Ribbon Shares…

with the new 2015-16 Annual Catalog just days away from launching, here is a great way to get lots of ribbon:

*edited with new info- I forgot to include 5 of the new ribbons, read the red below. 

Hi There Stamping Friends!

How are you doing? Are you getting excited about the new catalog coming out soon? (June 2nd to be exact-that’s just 19 days away). Well I have had lots of requests to do another ribbon share, and would love to hook you all up with a nice bundle of our new ribbons. I am going to collect RSVP’s via email, and if there is enough interest, and sign up in multiple’s of 5 people, then I can pull it off for you. The more the merrier!

Here are the details…I have selected 16 of our brand new ribbons, threads and two embellishments  to be included in the ribbon shares.

You will receive 2 yards of each of the following:

  • 5/8″ Striped Cotton Ribbon in 5 returning In-Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, and Tangelo Twist
  • 1″ Dotted Lace Trim in 5 new In-Colors: Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, and Watermelon Wonder
  • Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim (*this ribbon is carrying over from the Spring Occasions 2015 catalog but was on back-order for months, so I decided to add it to the ribbon share).
  • Sequin Trim in two new colors: Blushing Bride and Silver  (gold and Bermuda Bay are carrying over too!)
  • Smoky Slate 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon (yes the natural is carrying over too!)
  • 3/8″ Stiched Satin Ribbon in five colors: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Whisper White (this is the kind of ribbon the In-Colors were featured in last year, but they switched things around, love this ribbon!)

You will receive 10 yards of each of the following:

New Metallic Thread in Silver and Gold (you will receive 10 yards of each as it comes in a 50 yard roll each).

Also included in this Share will be 3 pieces (one each) of our new Expressions Natural Elements (wood). You  will receive one each: Congrats, Thanks, and Celebrate.

If you were to purchase these ribbons and wood elements yourself, it would cost you over $250 to order them all. That is the beauty of a Ribbon Share. You receive 48 yards of ribbon and thread… which will be neatly rolled/packaged for you.

As a special thank you for your Ribbon Share Order with me, you will receive an entire package of our brand new Metal Rimmed Pearls (24 adhesive backed white pearl embellishments with silver rims 8 each of 3 sizes).

Ready to sign up for my 2015 New Catalog Ribbon Share?? Just email me at by May 30th (I need your payment by then as well).  (I accept cash, check or credit card). This order is going in at 6 am on Tuesday June 2nd before the system gets too bogged down with thousands of demonstrators putting their orders in.

*If I have 25 people or more sign up for this ribbon share, then as an added thank you, you will each receive a package of the new 2015-2016 In Color Blossom Accents (they are adorable!) And that would bring the value of this share up to $58 each, but the cost would remain only $40 each. (includes the tax, shipping and handling).

So what do you think? Hope you are interested in getting your hands on a bunch of lovely new ribbons!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by my blog today!
