June 4th = A New Annual Catalog!

It's always so exciting when a new catalog begins.  I've been flipping thru my personal copy trying to decide which stamps I want.  Demonstrators were able to order some items ahead of time, but for the annual catalog, there is always a list of certain items available to us, not the entire catalog.  That means June 4th is a big day, not just for customers, but also for demonstrators!  It means we can order new stuff on our wish lists.  I love the new Inspiring Iris stamp set (on page 111.)  I have other iris stamps, but this one is different since it is a 2-step stamp that doesn't require coloring.  When I need a card-in-a-hurry, I like being able to stamp and not have to worry about coloring in the image.

Last Chance for Everything is Rosy!

What happened to the month of May?  I can't believe we're heading into June next weekend. 
This is a reminder that if you wanted to pick up the limited time Everything is Rosy kit, you have less than a week remaining.  The kit is an investment at $80, but includes so many elements that I think it's a good value. 

Here are some other card ideas as inspiration for using the kit:

It's Here!

My Everything is Rosy bundle arrived!  I had so many things I needed to do today, but I dropped everything to play with my new supplies.  Here is my simple card.  I also used the wreath image from the Wishing You Well stamp set, as well as my retired Pink Pirouette ink.  I look forward to creating some more projects, as well as checking out Pinterest to see what others create.

New Storage Options

Stampin' Up has designed a new line of storage solutions that will be available next week!  Here's a video about the offerings:

And here are some important things to note about the new items:

Will old-design Stampin’ Pads fit in the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
No. The Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are designed to fit our new-design Stampin’ Pads only.
How high can I stack storage trays?
We stacked up to 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT we would not recommend stacking that high. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they’ll become. Use your discretion when stacking.
How should I use the Open Storage Cube?
The Open Storage Cube can be used to hold any miscellaneous items like ribbon, embellishments, and small punches.
How many Stampin’ Ink Refills can I store in the Storage Topper?
You can store up to 20 Stampin’ Ink Refills (or other small items) in the Storage Topper.
Are ink pads difficult to remove from Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
No. When you insert an ink pad into a storage tray, a small portion of the ink pad will stick out. We designed it this way, so your ink pads will be both secure and easy to access.

Did you know that new items were added as Sale-a-Bration rewards?  Some of the items were even pulled directly from the Annual Catalog!  These items are available as a free selection for each $50 in orders placed between now and the end of the month.  Other items are still available too.  Please check my Stampin' Up shopping website for more info.   

I love, love, love this embossing folder!  I used it with ink and it was a "wow!"

This pretty paper pack has 8 sheets.  That would make a bunch of cards!

Want an easy card idea?  Use this paper & you won't even need to stamp an image!
