Last Day of the Occasions Mini Catalog

Well today is the last day to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The "Carry-Over" list of products from the Occasions Mini Catalog is out. I don't know about you, but I'm suprised about the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set not being on this list. You know what that means - if you haven't ordered it yet - today's your LAST CHANCE to get a hold of what I can say, "is one of my all time favorites"!

I am already for my Summer Smooches class tonight and I can't wait for the ladies to come and make these projects.  I think they are pretty cute if I do say so myself.  I will be placing an order tonight after the class so if you'd like to order please contact me ASAP.

I will try and upload photos tomorrow of tonight's projects.  I have to take my aunt to the doctor tomorrow, but hopefully that won't be an all day affair.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

P. S.  Don't forget about the retiring lists of stamps and accessories along with the decor elements.  The links are on the left of this blog.

A Little Update.....

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile.  Things have been pretty busy lately.  My aunt and uncle were here from California for a few days and I wanted to spend as much time with them as I could since we don't get to see them that often.  We had a good time and I miss them already.  I'm thinking a trip to California should be in our near future.  I will try and get some things posted this next week since it should slow down a little.  At least that is what I'm always hoping. :)

My Summer Smooches class is full for tomorrow night. Don't miss out on the next class. More info coming soon on class schedules for May and June.

I will be placing an order tomorrow night so if you'd like to order please let me know ASAP. Items from the retirement lists are going fast. Don't wait! You can order from my stampin' store as well and click on the SHOP NOW button.

Want to be one of the first to see the new catalog debuting on June 1? Book a workshop and I'll get you one as soon as I have them in my hot little hands, sometime between mid to late May.  Book parties count as well. This catalog is sure to be full of exciting new stamps and accessories. I can't wait! Please let me know if you'd like me to reserve you a copy.  I will be hosting a Catalog Debut party sometime in June and catalogs can be picked up then.  More info coming on that soon.  If you need me to mail you your catalog all I ask is that you pay for the shipping ($5.00 priority mail)
Don't forget that May is still a good time to host a workshop since the retirement lists run through May 31.  Many of your friends may just want to get those retiring stamp sets before they are gone forever and you can get the hostess benefits.  You can host in your own home or mine.  Whichever you prefer.  If you want to host at my place all I ask is that you provide the refreshments.  I'll do the cleaning.  Now how's that for an deal? :)  Contact me for available dates.
Hope to hear from many of you soon and I look forward to a fun new catalog year with you!

So that panic doesn't set in when you view the list, here is a direct quote from StampinUp!

"Starting June 1, our Classic Stampin’ Pads will be updated with a new firm-foam pad that offers better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images. There seems to be some concern about all of our Classic Stampin’ Pads being on the retired lists. Not to worry! Our core colors are not retiring; we are just updating and improving the pads themselves."

 Here is a link to the retiring accessories list

You can view retiring stamp sets by visiting my Stampin'Up! website and clicking on the SHOP NOW button.

Don't delay to get your favorites!  If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.

Blessings for a wonderful day!

Post has been edited to add new info on pads

Retiring Accessories list is here.  You can view the items retiring by clicking on the link to the left here and it will take you to my stampin' store to view the lists.  I'm working at getting a PDF file to post so you can print it if you would prefer that.

You will see that it shows many of the ink pads are retiring.  The 2010-2011 In Colors are retiring, but the other main colors that you will see on this list are not retiring for good.  The ink pads are having a makeover so hence the old ones are shown as retiring.  So don't panic!  If you have any questions concerning anything retiring please contact me and I'll explain.  You can reach me at my home phone 989-453-3267 or on my cell 989-551-1685.  I may be in and out the next few days so don't hesitate to call my cell.  I want to be here to answer your questions.

I know this seems like a long retiring list, but just think of all the new stuff we will have June 1.  Remember don't hesitate to order as the accessories list will only be while supplies last.  Stamp sets will be available through May 31.

Have a blessed day!

Firm Foam Stampin' Pads

With the introduction of the 2012-2013 annual catalog, we have made a very big change to our Stampin' Pads.
Introducing. firm foam pads! They change your stamping experience for the better.
We know you're going to love these new Stampin' Pads-just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Pad stays juicier for longer resulting in better ink pad longevity!
In addition, our new Stampin' Pads
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)-just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  Hope your day has been an enjoyable one.  I have just a couple of quick things to share today.  The first is the other card I told you about on Friday.  This card came from my sister Carin and BIL Luke.

Isn't it purrtayy???  Thanks so much for the lovely card.  And here is the other thing I wanted to show you today.

I made this cake for our dinner today.  It's been awhile since I've made a decorated cake for just us.  It was pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting.  YUM!!!

Good Friday

Isn't it strange that we call today "Good" Friday when such a tragic thing happened to our Lord and Saviour on that day?  But it did work for good because by Him dying on the cross it gave us forgiveness of our sins if we but ask Him to.  How simple and good is that?

I haven't had time to do any stamping this week due to other obligations.  My aunt continues to struggle with health issues and I struggle to try and do my best to help.  I think we've been to almost every "ologist" there is.  LOL!  None of her issues are life threatening, but do need to be attended to.  I could sure use a prayer or two if you have one to spare.  I really miss it when I don't get to stamp and it actually makes me feel sad when I haven't been in the stamp room for awhile, but my sadness quickly turned to a smile last night when I got home and found this adorable card waiting for me.
Funny though how Frank doesn't open any of the "unfun" mail (you know the bills), but he had certainly ripped open this lovely card when he got home before me last night. *Ü*  This card came from our good friend Myrna.  We've known Myrna for years and she is almost like family.  Myrna attends most of my classes and we always have a good time together.  Thanks Myrna for this beautiful card.  It certainly made my day.

We received another card too yesterday, but I'll wait until Sunday to share that one.  Have a wonderful day and may you find time to reflect on that awesome gift we were given on that first Good Friday.
