Catalog Transition, NEW Weekly Deals & More

Spring is in the air! and while we are enjoying the first taste of warmer weather, I wanted to make sure that you are aware of some important dates. After all I don’t want you to miss out on anything!

2013-2014 Catalog Cover

Stampin’ Up! is getting ready for their Catalog transition. What does this mean for you? Well there are some important dates you’ll want to be aware of since there are some changes this year to how things work.

And if this is your first catalog transition, it means that a lot of the items in the current Catalog will go away to make room for new goodies in the 2014 Annual Catalog.

So if you have held off getting something that you really want or would like more of – now is the time to order so you don’t miss out.  While you’re flipping through your catalog and looking at your wish list you’ll want to pay close attention to the following items in preparation for the Retirement List:

  • 2012-2014 In Colors (This includes card stock, ink pads, refills, markers, ribbon and accessories)
  • Punches
  • Big Shot items such as Dies & Embossing Folders
  • Designer Series Paper (These typically ALL retire)
  • Accessories (Which include ribbons, buttons, brads, etc)
  • Stamps (Of, course you’ll want your favorites)

It is hard to say what will be on the list until we see it. So play it safe – get the items that you really want before the list is released.

And of course, don’t forget the Occasions Catalog – When the Retirement List comes out it is easy to forget the items in this catalog. It ends on June 1st.

Transition Dates & Details:

  • Monday, April 21st  –  The Retirement List will be announced
  •  New this year: BOTH stamps and accessories will be available Only While Supplies Last!
  •  June 2nd – NEW 2014 Annual Catalog goes live! (ordering begins at 12 p.m. MT)
  • June 4th – Last Chance to Order from the “old” 2013 Annual Catalog
  • August 28th – New 2014 Holiday Catalog goes live! (ordering begins at 12 p.m. MT)

As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

More Swaps, Weekly Deals, and Digital Downloads

Happy April Fools Day! can you believe how quickly the year is going by? And it’s no joke!

Twenty-Two years ago today I was in the hospital, getting every April Fools joke you can think of about labor – while in labor with our first child. The time has flown by and he is now 22! Yikes. So on my agenda today is creating something special for his birthday that I’ll be sharing with you later this week.

Meanwhile, I told you yesterday that I would share more of the cards that I received from my friends during this month’s meeting. So here are two more from my friends Anna and Janie.

This first card is clean and simple and uses the stamp set Lots of Thanks (129687/129690) along with our monochromatic Designer Series Paper, Modern Medley (126926).

Lots of Thanks Stamp Divas March swap 2014 Anna

If you are looking for a great place to start your stamping a monochromatic Designer Series Paper is a great place to start. This card uses just three items, Very Vanilla and Basic Black Card stock and Ink. Along with your favorite stamp set and you can create a ton of clean and classic cards.

This second card is for the Big Shot lover in us all and uses the Oh,Hello stamp set (131931/130733).

Oh, Hello Blue Mountain Stamper March 2014 Janie

This card is fun and filly and for the girl in all of us. Janie uses the Dress Up Framelits (130101) for the focal point along with the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (132996). Too cute right? I love the little pearl necklace and the Coastal Cabana 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim.

New Digital Downloads

World Traveler MDS Download

My daughter and I are visiting my sister and brother in-law in Houston. We’re having such a great time together and doing a lot. I can’t decide who is wearing out whom.

Today I wanted to share with you one of our new My Digital Studio downloads, World Traveler. I couldn’t wait to use it – It’s a great deal for just $17.95 and makes putting your vacation photos together sooo easy! Here are a couple of pages I put together quickly this morning over coffee while visiting with my sister. I used the basic photo book template and then just added a couple more photos of my own to the page. It was so easy-peasy.

World Traveler (Item #130066) comes with a 26 page photo book template, 28 piece stamp brush set, 8 Designer Series Paper patterns and 24 embellishments! What a great value.
