New Product Line added July 1

As I wrote in the last update, a new product line was announced to demonstrators on Tuesday.  Some of the speculation was correct, we have a new addition to our product offering that includes a line called Décor Elements.  It includes vinyl decorative elements that will cling to walls, windows, mirrors, etc.  Home decor that complements our images that you’ll find in our rubber stamps and scrapbook images and embellishments.  A brochure will be available for download on July 1!


Retirement List

As promised in my last update, the retirement list has posted to the Stampin’ Up webste.  Here is a link:

Be sure to get these sets before they’re gone forever on August 11.  You have until June 30 to get one of the retiring sets, Circle of Friendship, at 25% off!  A few other noteworthy sets you might want to add to your collection: Its Your Birthday (Lots of birthday card sentiments, great for cards), Eat Cake, Be Happy, and many more.  Check the list against your catalog, or the online catalog.

I have an official Stampin’ Up website now, though I will still post updates and projects here.  My new website address is:

Recipe Box and other updates

First the updates!

1. The Occasions Mini catalog ends on June 30! Last chance to get all these limited time goodies! (I made my recipe box with Designer Paper and Stamps found in the catalog)

2. The retiring stamps list will be releasing soon. In a little less than a week. These are sets that are retiring from the current Idea Book & Catalog before the Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalog is released on August 11.

3. I can have a free Sampler catalog of items that will be in the big catalog mailed to you. Just let me know you want one and give me your address in case I don’t have it and I’ll get it sent out to you. Who doesn’t like something for nothing? I have until June 30 to put you on the list to receive it on August 11 in your mailbox, so let me know ASAP!!

4. A new product line for Stampin’ Up is being announced on June 17. No one knows what it is yet, though there is some speculation. Maybe Cricut/Cuttlebug exclusive templates? Maybe home decorating wall rub-ons? No one really has any clues.
