Isabel will be confirmed on June 3. We are very excited and I’m busy with invitations/announcements. Inspired by Expressions by Inga March 28th post, here is my version using Crosses of Hope, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Paper Daisies, Basic Pearls, Organza Ribbon, and the Paper Doily Sizzlits Die. I also used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the daisy and doily.
It’s that time of year again, time to say goodbye to some of our Stampin’ favorites. Stampin’ Up! has posted the annual retirement list for stamps and accessories. I’ll warn you, it is a little larger than usual. However, do not be concerned. First, you’ll notice that the Classic Stampin’ Pads are retiring but don’t worry, we aren’t having another color renovation. Stampin’ Up! is reconfiguring the pads to go from the current cloth ones to foam ones. The new configuration will provide better coverage and crisper stamped images. You’ll also see that some of the 12×12 cardstock will be retiring. Based on sales, Stampin’ Up! is reconfiguring the packaging and offering some colors only in a package for the entire color family. If you have questions about items on the retired list, please contact me. Stampin’ changes always mean greater opportunity for creativity.
Items are available through May 31 and then they are gone! And remember, now is a great time to host a show because guests are eager to shop for their retiring favorites.
The Summer Smooch promotion is ending on April 30th, 2012. This is will be your last chance to order some items from the 2012-2013 Catalog and Idea Book before it debuts and also your last chance to order the brads and stencil before they go away FOREVER!
