    September Class Projects

    Hello and Happy September to all of you.  Well the grandkids are back in school and our camping is slowly winding down...Although I do love fall camping the best, perhaps a couple more times LOL. However, we did start up our normal club last Friday and I wanted to share with you the projects that we made.  

    The little Halloween bags were made using the "Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit" item #126914 from the Holiday Catalog.  Check these out it contains 20 printed double-sided tags; 10 glassine bags with die-cut edges; 50 adhesive-backed googly eyes and pumpkin pie/whisper white baker's twine...what a great way to whip up little goodies for the kids class mates.

    The spider card was inspired from a card designed by Sandi MacIver, a talented SU demonstrator.  We used Googly Ghouls #128063 and Wicked Cool #120600 stampsets and embossed the white background using the Spider Web Folder # 1200889 to give it a little place for the spiders to play on, and of course, added googly eyes for fun.

    The Happy Birthday day was a mix of inspiration from fellow demonstrators Cindee Wilkinson and Carol Matthew.  This was a technique called stained glass.  We used vellum cardstock and white craft ink on the flowers along with white embossing power and then colored on the back side to give the stained glass effect.  The Butterflies were done in the same manner only using stazon black ink and clear embossing power...I really liked how these turned out and I think the ladies did too.

    The third card inspired by demonstrator Angie Juda uses Betsy's Blossoms #126006 and Curly Cute #120510 using the in-color Gumball Green (A color I just love, love, love)

    Don't forget the "Back to Spool" promotion that Stampin' Up! is having for the month of September.
     For the month of September, get a FREE package of 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon-an $8.95 value-for every $40 you spend!

    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!
    In addition, our new Stampin’ Pads
    • Create wonderfully solid images. The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam
      pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not 
      have been able to achieve with the felt pads.
      Please note: if you are using the ink pad 
      frequently you may need to
      re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
    • 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!
    • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

    Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve
    functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are
    • Basic Black
    • Basic Gray
    • Marina Mist
    • Perfect Plum
    • Tempting Turquoise
    All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While
    using the new ink formula in the old Stampin’ Pads is fine, we do not recommend
    using the old ink formula for these five colors in the new firm foam pads. Any

    refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.


    Sunday, April 29, 2012

    Wow there are so many changes coming to the new Stampin' Up! catalog I can hardly believe it....The new catalog will be arriving in June so the month of May is focusing on what is leaving us...somethings are causing me some boo hoo's as I lose some of my favorite stamp sets BUT I always find new favorites in the new catalog LOL.

    The items retiring will be available ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, or no later than May 31, 2012. So if you have paper or stamp sets you having been waiting to purchase now is the time.
    You can click on the following links to go the lists.

     Let me tell you a little about what changes are coming...  

    12x12 textured card stock will no longer be in our product offering. We will still have the 12x12 smooth but only in select individual colors and collections.  

    The Simply Adorned and Definitely Decorative Products will No longer be in the SU product lineup.

    There is a change in our stamp pads as they are being redesigned with a firm foam pad instead of the linen pads we use today.

    In addition, Craft Ink pads, Craft ink spots, and Craft ink refills will no longer be offered - with the exception of Black and White Craft Ink pads and Refills. 

    One last thing I noticed is that our Stampin' Write Markers will only be offered in select colors for individual purchase, however they will still be available in packages in their collections...Neutrals, Regals, Brights, Subtles and In Colors.
    As always if you have questions regarding any of these retiring products please feel free to call me at 248-391-5978 or email me.
