Monday June 20, 2011–The New Stampin’ Up Idea Book and Catalogue is here for you!

Catalog 1

FINALLY!  I can announce the new 2011-2012 Stampin Up Idea Book and Catalogue is ready to place is your hands!  Although we have had the books for several weeks, we were told they could not be released until June 20th!  If you hear someone say the books are not available until July 1, that is a mistake.  The books cannot be SOLD until July 1, but as we no longer charge for the books, ours can be released now! 

SO, how do you get your book?  Well, you can stop by any time and pick it up – just call in advance (630-759-3089) – OR – you can stop by on Saturday, July 16th, create a make-n-take, view all the stamps, etc. I will be selling in my garage sale on July 22, 23 and pick up your catalog – OR – I can mail your catalog, although there will be a charge for shipping.  Several of you have orders you have placed and I will put your catalog with your order. 

NOW is the time for you to host a book party or workshop.  The new hostess plan is explained in the new book.  I really like the new plan as instead of being limited to a few stamps as a hostess award, you are given dollars to spend on anything.  PLUS, there are a limited number of stamp sets that are available to the hostess at a reduced price.  Check it out and let me know if you wish to have a workshop at your home or mine – or if you wish to host a book party.

As I mentioned above, we are having a garage/craft sale on July 22 and 23.  If you have stamp sets, cards or paper crafts you wish to sell, please let me know.  We can provide a table for you in our garage and you can sell away!  If you are interested in purchasing the sets I will be selling, they will be out for you to view on July 16th AND I will give you a 10% discount on anything you purchase!  What a deal!  Debbie and I did a major clean out of older stamps and I will be selling quite a few!  You should see my empty shelves!

I promised earlier this month to share some cards made by our fellow stampers – and I never followed through.  Here are some of these clever creations:Judy's Card

This is Judy’s interpretation of our June Build-A-Blossom card – and I just realized it is UPSIDE DOWN but it is still beautiful.  Judy used a non-Stampin’ Up stamp set and die and tied it together with the antique brad.  Judy gave me the name of the stamp set and die she used, but I can’t find the information now.  I know she would be happy to share the names of the items she used!

Andreas Yellow Ducky

In May, I shared some cards Andrea had made using assorted punches.  These were originally created by our fellow stamper Kathy Moodie.  Andrea scanned the cards on her computer and then recreated them.  Yellow Ducky is a cutie and perfect for a baby shower or a new baby.  It is amazing what you can do with circle and heart punches.  The wing of the duck and the pouf of hair are from the bird punch wing.  Our 1 1/4” striped grosgrain serves as the shower curtain and softly scalloped “water” becomes waves.

 

I will be announcing the Stamping Calendar for the remainder of the year later this week, so please check back.  Plus, I will be sharing some additional cards made by our stampers.  Right now, I am in the middle of 24 cards I am doing for a demonstrator swap.  My color scheme is Sahara Sand, Poppy Red and a touch of Not Quite Navy.  I will share a card with you later this week.  Right now I am finishing up all the embossing.  The paper is cut, but I have a been of embossing left.

Take care, Rosemary
