Something for everyone!

Here they are!  Hundreds of stamps and accessories from the 2012-2013 catalogs are retiring, and this is your chance to get them before they're gone. Many products are only available while supplies last, so be sure to get your orders in early! Some items have amazing discounts!  Check out the lists below & head HERE to start shopping! :)

It's time to retire! Stamps, that is!

It's coming...It's coming soon! It's the Retirement List! And I know many of you, like myself, are guessing what's going to retire and have my fingers crossed for my favorites to be staying around another year!!

So let's play a quick game to see who has the 'luckiest of guess' (and I'll let you buy me a Lottery Ticket too!).

So here is how we play:

1. Stroll through your catalog and pick which sets you think will retire this year.

2. Make a list of 10 sets you think will definitely retire from our 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog.

3. Email me your list by midnight, Tuesday, April 23rd.

4. On Wednesday, April 24th, you will receive via email the official retiring list of stamps! On Thursday, April 25th, I will announce the winner.

How do you win? The most correct stamp sets that will retire wins! Get all 10 and I'll include a bonus gift of a free stamp set!

What will the winner win? Bundle of Stampin' Up! goodies!
A Few Rules: Should the list be leaked early, the contest will be no more. All entries must be emailed to me by midnight, Tuesday, April 23rd. All hostess sets will retire, so they cannot be included in your list.

Want to play? Go peruse your catalog now and lets get started! Have fun!

Got Questions? Contact me!

P.S. - I'm scheduling "Retirement parties" for May! Book yours now!  
Have a fab day!

Color me HAPPY!

I have been doing the happy dance all day and stopped just long enough to share with you some OH SO EXCITING news! Stampin' Up just announced a wonderful COLOR REFRESH for our upcoming catalog! I LOVE color - I mean I LOVE LOVE LOVE it so hearing about a change around of colors made my day! Now, don't panic! If you have been a Stampin' Up customer for a little while, you probably already have these colors in your collection. There is really only one "brand brand new" color (Smoky Slate).
So, let's talk color! Just check out some of the returning IN COLORS from years past. That's the cool part about IN COLORS - the trend continues and so many of these colors are still SUPER trendy.
These colors are available while supplies last BUT to help you get over the initial shock, how does FREE SHIPPING sound? Cheerleader Smiley  April 6-8, 2013, Stampin' Up is giving you ALL FREE SHIPPING!!! Wahoo! Don't wait too long though because this is only through April 8, 2013!

Have a fab Friday!

Water Stamping

It's that time again!  Technique Time Tuesday's new challenge is up for the month of April!  Won't you join us?  We're Water Stamping! :)  Mynnette has a great tutorial on how to stamp with water.
It's funny how you gain inspiration based off trial & error.  While inking up several sheets of cardstock with various combos of colors, I happened to glance over and noticed the edges of the cardstock left almost a kalidoscope of colors.  So I decided to go with it and created my own kalidoscope of colors to water stamp on! :)  Love the results! 
Come play along and show us your water stamping!  There's a great PRIZE in store for the winner! :)

Supplies: All Stampin' Up! (with the exception of the water HA!)
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Wild Wasabi, Elegant Eggplant
Stamps: Petite Pairs
Accessories: Big Shot, Bitty Banners Framelits, Rhinestones

Have a fab day!
