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!

Rain or Shine from Stampin up

Here is the card I promised using that fun umbrella set, Rain or Shine from the Spring Catalog. The umbrellas were stamped, hand cut and popped up over the stamped handles. The paper is also from the Spring catalog, Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP.

Thanks for stopping by!
