Retired List

If you haven't seen it already, here is the link to the retired list for the Spring/Summer Catalog. There are a lot of sets going. I put the numerical list link here. So if there is a set you have had your eye on, check the page number and check the list. Retiring stamp sets are available and can be ordered until August 10th. After August 10th they are gone forever!

If you have any difficulty with the link, log on to and under the "Specials" tab, you'll see the link for this list.

I'd like all orders to me by noon on August 10th as I am sure the system will be busy with everyone elses last minute orders for these retiring sets.

The retiring Accessory list will be out on July 18th. I will post it as soon as I get it. These items are only available while supplies last. DO NOT DELAY!! My suggestion would be to make a list of the stamp sets you want now, wait until the 18th when the accessory retired list comes out and then place your order ASAP. I am not kidding when I say things go quickly. Minutes DO make a difference!! I learned the hard way with a previous retired list.

Christmas in July/Stamp Camp Pictures

As promised, here are pictures of the 5 cards and nugget box we'll be doing for the Christmas in July/Stamp Camp. Don't forget that this class will have four different times to hopefully fit into your schedule and if you can't make it that day, you can still purchase the package and do it on one of my Come Be Creative nights. This class must be pre-registered and pre-paid by July 1st so that I can have the sets ordered and everything ready for the class.

Wanna SWAP

cards that is??? I am looking for 10 people to do a Card Swap. What is a card swap? Well it is simple. Each participant makes 10 of the same card and give them to me by a date to be handed in. Once I have all cards, I will split them up so you get 10 different cards back! This is a great wway to increase your card supply or get new ideas. You must use Stampin Up! s stamp sets, however, I will allow any card stock as many of you are just starting to get into the paper part of SU. Keep in mind, the more SU products you use to make the cards, the easier it is for people to "Case" them. Also, include 10 recipies for your cards in case people want to duplicate them. A little slip of paper is fine. Nothing too crazy. List your products, including colors, stamp set(s) used etc and if you used a special technique you may want to mention it.

Let me know soon if you'd like to join so we can start. I will be taking one of the spots, so there are only 9 left!!

PS. My Festive Favorites set should finally be in today. I'll make up the samples for Christmas in July and get them posted ASAP!!

Christmas In July/Stamp Camp

There was a delay in getting me my Festive Favorites stamp set, due to weather in Illinois! I still don't have it - I'm hoping to see it the beginning of this week. So I haven't gotten the samples to show you yet. However, the set is on page 35 of the Spring/Summer Catalog. I am going to send out the EVITE today so that we can get the ball moving on signing up. As soon as I get the set in, I'll do the samples and post them! Be on the look out for it!! This class NEEDS TO BE PRE-PAID as I will order the sets two weeks prior to the class date.

The Retired List is Here!!

Hi Everyone,

Here is the direct link to the retired list. It is a big one and I am so sad to see a lot of these sets go.

If you are unable to just click the link, copy and paste it into your browser.

Don't forget to order soon as once these sets are gone, they are gone forever!!

Stamp Camp/Christmas In July

By popular demand I am having a Stamp Camp/Christmas in July. Date to be determined. I will offer three time slots as that seemed to work the last time. 10:00am - 12:00pm, 1:00pm - 3:00pm and 4:00pm-6:00pm. I just wanted to give you a sneak peak into the set we will be using. Festive Favorites will be the set on page 35 of the current catalog.

The cost of the event will be $40.00 (includes s&h & tax). This needs to be pre-paid in order for the sets to be ordered.

What is included? You will receive the Festive Favorites stamp set, plus, you will come and make five different cards and one "Nugget" box using only this set. I will have all materials for these 6 projects pre-cut and ready to assemble.

You can then decide which of these cards will be your Christmas card and make as many as you need with your new set. I will have a limited supply of additional paper available for you to purchase that day to make these cards. If I don't have it, we can order it then and you'll be all set.

I will be sending out an Evite to everyone on my mailing list as this event needs to be pre-paid. I will order the sets prior to the event so they will be here in time. This means I'll need to adhere to a strict deadline to sign up. So think about it now. Please pass this along to anyone else you think would be interested.

I have just ordered my set today. As soon as I get it, I will create and post the 5 cards and nugget box for you to see what we will be doing. I will send the Evite at the same time, so be sure to check back when you get your invite!

I hope you are all as excited about this as I am. Be on the look out for an EVITE in the next couple weeks.
