New 2008 Fall & Winter Idea Book & Catalog!

Well here is the much awaited new Fall & Winter Idea Book & Catalog! Isn't the cover just so beautiful? You can click here to download a copy of the catalog or click the catalog icon on the left side of my blog. As of right now Stampin' Up! has decided not to have an on-line link to the catalog as they have in the past. I'm not sure why they have decided to do this but it might have something to do with the fact that they will have FULLY AUTOMATED ON-LINE ORDERING COMING SOON. Whoo Hoo! From what I have heard, Stampin' Up! will be transitioning to a fully automated one-step on-line order (shopping cart style) in the near future which will make your ordering process incredibly easy. How cool will that be? I will have the feature available on my blog as soon as it's released. In the mean time, you can either download your copy and save it to a CD or your computer. If you would prefer a copy of the catalog you can hold in your hands there are several ways to obtain one. You can host a party and earn one FREE or you can join a stamp club and earn one FREE or you can purchase one from me for $9,95. Contact me for more information or to purchase your copy!

Stampin' Up! has several wonderful promotions going on right now that I want to share with you. First of all they have new sets from the catalog priced at a 15% discount!! Can you believe it? Click here

Then Stampin' Up! is offering NEW $99 MINI STARTER KITS!! For a limited time (Aug. 11 through October 11), Stampin' Up! has made becoming a demonstrator even more attractive by introducing three new $99 starter kit options.

Sign up for the full size kit by October 11 and receive a Free Stamp Set of your choice as a bonus (up to a $47.95 value). You can sign up online here but be sure to email me first to get my special password that allows you to sign up online!

What are some of the benefits of becoming a demonstrator? Here are just a few:

There is no obligation to hold workshops/parties or even sell Stampin' Up! products at all with the purchase of the starter kit. It's yours to use and enjoy. If you do decide you want to remain an active demonstrator and be a part of my team, just a minimum of $300 in product sales per quarter is all you need to do. Please contact me for more info! I'd love to have you as a part of my team!!

Finally I want to share with you a card that I have made using new colors, papers, stamps and tools! I just love new set of paper! The paper is called Bella Rose and the set is Dreams Du Jour! The scallop edge on this card is made by the new scallop punch pictured below!

Card Recipe:
  • Stamp Set: Dreams Du Jour
  • Papers: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White card stocks and Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
  • Inks: Basic Black ink pad, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette ink refills
  • Embellishments: Vintage Brads and Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon
  • Tools: Scallop Edge Punch, 1/8" hole punch, Aqua Painters and dimensionals

What do you think of this card? I do just love it! The punch is so very easy to use too! I love it so much! We will be trying it out this weekend at my NEW CATALOG Open House! Can't wait for you to get you hands on it!

Here is all you have to do to use the new punch. Punch the card stock once then move it down and line it up with the scallops that are printed on he punch itself. Continue to punch until you have the desired length of the card stock finished. It also punches off a skinny strip of card stock that can be used as embellishment too.

I have seen so many neat ideas made using the punch. If I can remember where I've seen them, I'll post links to them to share with you!

This post was very long today but I have so much to share with you! I'm so glad that you stopped by! I'll be showing more samples that I have made using other sets this week. I'm going to go get busy stamping some more now!

Happy Stampin'
