This and That and Rain or Shine

I know that title doesn’t make much sense. I am covering a lot of stuff today! Several new products (a new product line!) and of course a card for you too. I’ll start with our new product line called This and That. These are wonderful little whatever books called smash books. They harken back to the old time scrapbooks which were as much about mementos as they were photos. These little books are so much more, though. You can use them for all kinds of things other than the scrapbook variety.

Use them to keep track of your redecorating or remodeling project. Make a journal to track baby’s first year, or a year in your life. Get organized for Christmas. Track your weight loss. These books are designed for quickly jotting ideas or storing photos, scraps, notes and mementos. Just tuck it in, tape it on, jot it down and smash it closed. Fast and fabulously fun!

fabric frenzy

All of our fabric is half off, this week only!! Call me, email or order online, but hurry! This sale ends on Sunday, March 31st! They have only set aside a specific amount of fabric for this sale, when it’s gone the sale price goes away.

I am not sure if you have noticed, but Stampin’ Up!  is making a lot of changes lately. We are rolling out new stamps almost monthly and new products as soon as they become available, rather than waiting for the next catalog transition. I like this, and I love that it allows us to introduce trendy items and stamps almost monthly. I’ll keep links to these new items posted in my sidebar, but the trend seems to be that we will offering seasonal sets or bundles almost monthly and new single stamps every two or three months. The current batch of single stamps is about to expire and I am hoping we will see some new ones around the first of April. Here are links to the current singles, in case you want to get them before they go away on March 31st.

How about a sneak peek at at new set from the upcoming catalog? Or even better, you can purchase it now if you like. A Round Array is a fun little set with multiple sentiments and a matching 7/8″ scallop punch. Buy them separately or in a bundle at 15% off! They won’t be bundled when the new catalog comes out, so that is a good deal!

New Ink Pads and Accessory retirement list!

retired list

Good morning everyone! The retired accessories list is out and there are some real surprises! Don’t panic when you see it! It is huge! We are retiring a couple of product lines (Decor Elements and Simply Adorned) and we are reconfiguring quite a few products. Many of the products on this list are at a discount, so grab what you need as soon as possible, because they are gone as they sell out. Stamps will still be available until May 31st.

So here is a little scoop about some of the products being reconfigured for the new catalog!! Our ink pads are being reconfigured! They will have a new foam pad, rather than the linen pad. I have heard from demonstrators who have gotten to play with them and they say, “You will LOVE them”! They give a nicer, bold image with very little effort (just a tap on the ink pad). I can’t wait to get my hands on them! They are in the same case, so they will still fit your current storage. They also come with a nice new label for the front of the pad, which I love.

Look for a single asterisk for all of the products that will still be available, but in a reconfigured package or style. Other things being reconfigured are our paper cutter, heat tool and package configurations for 12×12 card stock. Many colors will only be found in the assortment packs. So if you have some favorite colors you may want to check and stock up on those.

As always, you can call or email with an order or head on over to my online store to pick up those must have items before they are gone for good (and get some great deals while you are at it!)

It’s Time to Say Goodbye!

The Retired List is out and that means we are saying goodbye to some of our favorite sets. The list is pretty big this year, due to the changes in our catalog program. We will be releasing the new catalog on June 1st!! I can hardly believe it is that time. That is a month earlier than in previous years. The new catalog will be about 40 pages smaller, but the seasonal catalogs will be much larger. They will be 8 1/2 x 11 and will have more pages. There will only be a Holiday and Occasions mini catalog now, we will no longer have a Summer Mini Catalog. We will also be discontinuing our Decor Elements and Simply Adorned lines so that will make more room in the yearly catalog.

Check over the Retired List and get your must have sets, before they are gone for good! We will be releasing the Retiring Accessories list on April 25th. I did notice that all of the sweet treat cups sets were retiring, so if you want those, I would stock up now. When the accessories go, they go quickly and we cannot get more of those items.
