NEW! Catalog Kickoff & Online Ordering Update

Last week was quite possibly one of the busiest weeks I've had all year.  Everyday, I had at least 10 items on my to do list to tackle and 2-3 places to be.  There was no rest for the weary, I tell you!  Anyway, I hope that you had a good week.

Over the weekend, I held my SOLD OUT Stampin' Up! Retirement Party and NEW! Catalog Kickoff, and we had a blast!  We celebrated the retirement of the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and 2015 Occasions Catalog and welcomed in the NEW! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.  

We did so by making three cards--each card featuring products from each catalog.

  • The first card features the Hello Darling Stamp Set from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog...a stamp set that I will miss terribly.  
  • The second features the Big on You Stamp Set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog...another fave.  
  • The last one features the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set, Tree Builder Punch and Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  Such a fun new addition!

Hello Darling Card

This card is my own design.  I used Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock for the card base and stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Typeset Designer Series Specialty Paper (it's sticking around for another year...YAY!).  

The sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and die cut using the Deco Collection Framelits.  The die cut sentiment is adhered onto a larger piece of Basic Black die cut cardstock.  I finished it off with some gold sequin from our Gold Sequin Trim.  

So Kind of You Card

For this card, I CASE'd myself using my It's Your Day Card as my muse.  I used my favorite bright colors--Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo--as well as the Big on You, Crazy about You and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.  

We stamped the three flowers, punched them with the Flower Medallion Punch, curled the ends a bit with our bone folders, and layered them.  I love the simplicity of this design and the big impact of the bright colors.

Sprinkles of Life Card

For this last card, I borrowed the design from one I saw on Pinterest.  I was in quite a pinch time-wise, so I had to come up with something quick.  

I used two new In Colors in the design--Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe--and the Sprinkles of Life Stamp SetTree Builder Punch and Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  This card was so fun to make, and the possibilities are endless with this new stamp set and coordinating punch!

We had a new friend join us--Vivian.  It turns out that we're practically neighbors.

My crafty friends liked the cards we made, but they weren't fooling me...they were really here for the new catalog.  Can you blame them?!  We had a great time, and now they can't wait to get their hands on the new catalog products!

Online Ordering from the New Catalog

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY, and I, like thousands of my fellow demonstrators and most of my customers, can't wait to get our hands on these fabulous new products!  So, have you made your Wish List and checked it twice?  Most importantly, did you know that you can order from ALL THREE of our Catalogs on June 2nd?!  Yep!  But that's the last day to do so.  

Also, our current host program will change to Stampin' Rewards (find the chart at the bottom of page 178 in the new catalog), and we'll move to even-dollar pricing on June 3rd.  So, if you have an order of $150 or more, be sure to place your order on June 2nd while the current host program is still available.  You've been warned!

PLEASE NOTE:  Online ordering will be OFFLINE June 2nd and 3rd from 12 am MT to 2 am MT, and it will likely be slow due to volume traffic the first day or two.
