I placed my order from the new catalog and was so excited to get new stamps, dies, embellishments, cardstock and DSP.  I recommend you get some new goodies too!  BUT, be sure to check the list below before you buy the DSP.  After my order arrived I got a note from Stampin' Up that there will be a sale on the designer paper in July!  Not all papers are included, but some of my favorites are listed.  You can watch the video above to see all the pretty papers that are available and then reference the list below to see if your favorites will be on sale next month.  And one more thing, if 4 packs of paper seems too much for your crafting style, be sure to talk to your friends.  This is a great opportunity to combine your orders to save some $$$.

I love new things!

I get tired of things.  I get tired of foods, of places, and of hobbies.  I get bored with stamp sets and inks.  This isn't a new thing for me.  It's a lifelong struggle.  As much as I hate change, somehow I need it in order to be happy.

I've been tired of crafting.  I haven't been feeling creative and I haven't had any desire to make cards or do scrapbooking.  That is until now.  I'm so excited to have a new catalog with new items.  I purchased some things and was inspired to make some projects, which is HUGE!  I've been playing with 3 stamp sets from the new catalog and I've been enjoying every moment.  

Perhaps my favorite set is the tree set called Rooted in Nature.  It reminds me of Lovely As A Tree, but also has sentiments & leaf images.  I know I'll reach for it often because of it's versatility.  I also love the designer series paper that is part of the suite.  I had to order a 2nd pack because I had used up the 1st one I purchased.  It's just that good!

Stampin' Up!'s New Ink Pad Case Design

I received a couple of the new ink pads and I like them much more than expected.  While they are tight, I didn't have a problem opening or closing them.  I'm hoping this new design will have fewer issues with the lid separating from the track (I always hated having to put them back together when that happened!) 

On another note, if you placed orders totaling $100 or more with me over the past year, you will receive a catalog in the mail before the end of this month.  Customers on the East Coast have already received theirs, so that means that the catalogs must be making the way West now.  If you are a local customer, please contact me and I'll let you know when you can pick up your catalog from my front porch.

Surprise! It's the Retirement List! (LONG post)

I knew that the official retirement listing would be released today.  I knew I'd be sad to say goodbye to some of my favorite stamp sets.  What I wasn't expecting was to see some of my favorite colors leave too.  

Stampin’ Up! has announced a Color Re-vamp. This means several colors are retiring, some new colors are debuting and some colors are coming back out of retirement.
You may notice on the retired list that all the ink pads and re-inkers are on the list.  Don't worry!  The ink pad case is being re-designed, so for now, these are the colors you need to concentrate on.  These are the ones that are now available only while supplies last.
The thirteen retiring colors are:
  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder
The retiring 2016-2018 In Colors are:
  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugar Plum
*Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will be back as a regular color offering (in the Brights collection) on June 1st.  
Additionally, the Archival Basic Black and Archival Basic Grey inks are retiring.
And now the BIG list!
