Checking Back In/New Catalog!

Wow! It's been a long time since I've posted. I really had planned on posting more and even had some great Christmas projects to share, but just got caught in the holiday rush. I hope you all had a nice Christmas. We had a great time. Now, we're gearing up for New Year's Eve and a baby shower that I'm throwing for Kent's sister, Erin. I'll share some of the baby shower projects soon.

For now, I wanted to remind you of some important dates.

  • The Fall & Winter Catalog is ending in a few days. I will be placing one final order on December 30 at 6:00 PM. If you would like to order anything, let me know by this date. Payment should also be received by the 30th. I have updated the Retired Accessory list. You can view the Retired Stamp Set list on the right side under Special Download Forms.

  • The NEW Spring/Summer Collection has arrived!!! I can't wait to show it to you! Stampin' Up comes out their main catalog twice a year now, so that is why it may seem EARLY to be hearing about a new catalog already.

    Please let me know if you are interested in reserving a copy of one. They are a great resource for IDEAS, not to mention all the FUN NEW stamp sets and accessories jam packed inside. You won't be disappointed!

    Hostesses and Current Clubbers receive a free catalog. While the catalog retails at $9.95, I sell them to my customers at my cost of $5. For the month of January, place an order of $30 or more and get one for free! You can start ordering from the new catalog on January 2.

  • Super Stampin' Weekend: Early Bird Registration is January 15. However, due to space constraints, we are cutting registration off at 30. To be sure you get a spot, email me right away that you are planning on attending. Let me know how long you'll be staying. Details can be found by clicking here! Find the registration form to the right.

Retired Accessories List

Below is the Retired Accessory List. Items on this list are available from now until the end of the month or while supplies last---whichever comes first. Stampin' Up! will update the list daily. I will then post the update here on my blog. Items in red are no longer available.

Please know that popular items will sell out quickly, so get me your order asap. I will be placing an order Tuesday, December 11 around 5:00 PM, if you would like to order anything. You can, of course, place an order after that time, but I am going to put one in, hopefully, before anything runs out!

Retired Accessories List

Retired wheels and accessories are available while supplies last, so make sure you place your orders no later than January 1.

Home Decor--Part 3 Christmas Wreath

I was so excited to finish this wreath! I once again used my Heat & Stick powder to adhere my glitter on the chipboard snowflakes. I don't use the red glitter very often, but it was perfect for this project. The two small snowflakes are missing their red rhinestone brads, but my order will arrive today so I can fix them later. The scalloped squares and star were covered with the Dashing Designer Papers. I just love this set of paper. I've been using it on all my Christmas decor items so that they match.

For those of you new to chipboard, there are a number of ways to cover it.
  1. Apply craft ink directly to the chipboard. I usually smoosh my chipboard piece into my large craft pad or use my craft spots to dab the color on. This gives you a smooth, velvet like finish.

  2. Apply craft ink and add embossing powder on top. You can use clear or use Iridescent Ice EP to give it some sparkle!

  3. Cover with designer paper. There are two ways to do this. The easiest way (and the one I usually choose) is to use your Anywhere Glue stick to stick your chipboard on a piece of paper. Then, working on your cutting mat, use a craft knife to cut off the excess pieces. The other way is two trace your chipboard piece onto your paper and cut it out. Use your Anywhere Glue Stick to adhere the paper. After either of these techniques, use your sanding block to sand off any rough edges. Use a nail file (the mini ones work great!)to get into small spaces.

  4. Cover with glitter. Smoosh Versamark pad on top of your chipboard piece, being sure to cover completely. Apply Heat & Stick powder and heat until the powder becomes liquidy. Pour glitter on top and heat just a bit more.

Day 3 Special

Today's special is . . .

Choose one item at catalog price (that means no shipping or tax will be added to the item---that's 17% off) when you make a purchase of $35 or more (before shipping and tax is added).

**Remember, specials cannot be combined--you cannot use one special to satisfy the requirements of another special. You can take advantage of more than one special.
