Stampin'Up! LOTS of Information!

Crafters -

WOW! What a GREAT month, huh? The Retired List is out and items are selling FAST! Stampin'Up! was able to get a few more items from the 2012-2014 InColors and those are selling out fast again!
This is a little lengthy, but only because there is SO much information.
AND my customers should now have their new 2014-2015 Catalog (the long distance crafters have begun receiving theirs via snail mail). The catalogs have been delivered to all who have placed an order in the past six months. If you haven't received a copy and are interested in a copy, please let me know!
Remember, when you place an online order of $50 or more through the end of this month, AND use Hostess Code 2D333EUD, you will receive a PDF with the May 2014 Masculine Cards Class information. There are several of you who list NO CONTACT with Stampin'Up! When you place your online order, please send me an email so I know that it was YOU who placed the order.
The following announcements have been posted to t…

Work of Art - Stampin'Up!

Crafters -

Several members of my downline and I attended the 2014 Catalog Premiere right here in Columbus, Ohio at the end of April. They surprised us and gave us the new stamp set called "Work of Art."

When they gave it to us, and keep in mind they did show us several samples using this set, I thought "that's a nice set, but that's not my style. I won't be purchasing it, I like stamp sets A, B, C,..." well you get the idea. It was outside of my comfort zone.

BUT let me tell you! After playing with this stamp set since I got it, I am having so much fun! Here's one of the cards that I made this weekend at my Retired Items / New Catalog Party.

For those of you who attended, you will notice a few slight differences. I always LOVE learning from each of you!

And don't forget to decorate the inside of the card AND the envelope too!

The inside of the card and the envelope were BIG differences huh? I decided to use this card design to send to my customers thi…

Masculine Card Class

Crafters -

Friday, May 9th is the deadline to register for the Masculine Card Class on Saturday, May 17th. The cost is $25.

Remember, when you order BOTH By the Tide Stamp Set AND The Open Sea Stamp Set (merchandise cost of $37.90), you can attend the class for FREE! The stamp sets need to be ordered through my online store by Friday, May 9th, in order to receive the free class registration. AND you'll be able to duplicate the card designs when you return to your home since you will have the stamp sets. We'll be using a few other stamps sets in my class too!

Do you live too far away? Perhaps the date doesn't work into your schedule, so you are unable to attend the card class? Place a $50 merchandise order through my online store before May 16th and useHOSTESSCODE2D333UED, and I'll send you the PDF with the card designs so YOU can make the cards at home!

Look forward to seeing you on the 17th!

Masculine Card Class - Get it FREE!

Crafters -

The Masculine Card Class is scheduled for Saturday, May 17th, from 6pm until 9pm. (Date change change due to Memorial Day weekend.) I don't know about you, but I seem to struggle with ideas for men's cards - anyone else?

SO, because Father's Day is next month, we will make ten (10) masculine cards. There will be four (4) designs and you will make two (2) of each. But wait! That only equals eight (8) cards? You can then make two of YOUR favorite design(s). You get to pick what the extra two cards will be! You can make them into whatever sentiment you wish - Father's Day, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank you - well, you get the idea.

The cost of the class will be $25 and you will need to RSVP by Friday, May 9th.

Would you like to attend this Masculine Card Class FOR FREE? Let me tell you how to do it! We will be using the By the Tide Stamp Set AND The Open Sea Stamp Set. Two of my FAVORITES! They are $18.95 each. When you purchase BOTH stamp sets (merchandis…
