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!

Dies Are Selling Fast!

This is the latest news from Stampin' Up.  I wanted to share it with you as soon as possible.  Nothing is more frustrating than planning to purchase a product only to have it sell out early.  If these items are on your wish list, the time to act is now.  :) 

Due to complications with our die supplier, we’ve run out of the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553) in North America and they will not be available in the future; this item will retire with the 2019 occasions catalog and because of these complications, we will not be able to replenish inventory on this item. If you placed an order for these dies while the item was on backorder, your order will be filled as soon as possible.
We anticipate our inventory may soon be depleted on a few additional dies that will retire with the current occasions catalog. The dies listed below will retire and will likely run out before the end of the catalog sales period.
If we sell out of these dies, they will no longer be available to order:
  • Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
  • Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
  • Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)
We are also concerned that we may run out of a few dies that will carry over into the new annual catalog. If this happens, they may go on backorder or may not be available to order until we are able to replenish the inventory.
We recognize that this is frustrating for you, and apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. The last thing we want to do is disappoint our demonstrators and their customers, so we are working on solutions to improve the situation with this product line.

There is something uplifting about making a card with butterflies on it!  I recently went to Texas for a scrapbooking convention and I had a great time.  I enjoyed spending time with like-minded people and having uninterrupted time to craft, visit, and shop!  I came home with eight 2-page layouts completed for my album, as well as other single pages and greeting cards.  While I'm happy to be home, it's kind of sad.  I miss being there.  I needed to craft something to lift my spirits, so I grabbed my butterflies.  Butterflies always make me happy!  

Hope you create something that makes you happy today too!
