Stamp Candy Jar!

I've decorated a cute jar and filled it with Stampin' Up's! exclusive single stamps (only demonstrators can order these)!! As of today, running through June 30, 2010, for every $50 you spend in SU current merchandise, you get to pick your "candy" from my Stamp Candy jar!! No worries, I will continue to fill it every week or as needed!!
Here's it is:

Bouquet Bunch Garden House Tote & Love Notes

Stampin' Up! and Ilina Crouse are the best at creating great stamp sets and wonderful ideas one how to use them! Once again, I've made a sweet tote that houses some sweet love notes. I used a tutorial I purchased from Ilina Crouse and the stamp set - Bouquet Bunch (#118529 wood mount) - from Stampin' Up's! Summer Mini Catalog, available now! My favorite coloring technique is watercoloring! Stampin' Up! not only has awesome Watercolor Crayons (packaged in each color family) and Aqua Painters (#103954), they also have Watercolor Paper (#105019)! Watch my website for an upcoming class where you can make one of these!

Bouquet Bunch

I love this new stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini. It's only $13.95 for wood mount and $10.95 for clear mount! I made this for two swaps I joined and CASEd it from Ilina Crouse (one of my favorite demonstrators) and Stampin' Success (Stampin' Up's magazine, exclusively for their demonstrators) and it's made with Baja Breeze - a returning In Color! I think it turned out sweet!

Happy Mother's Day! Happy Birthday to Steve Yzerman, Billy Joel and Joe Gelle with whom I share a Birthday with on Sunday, too! ~ ♥♥♥ ~

Stampin' Up! has just notified its demonstrators that they are unable to guarantee that all cardstock orders placed in May for retiring colors will be filled.

What does that mean to you? It means that if you NEED cardstock in retiring colors, you need to order it as soon as possible! There are already several cardstock colors that are on backorder and may not be filled OR they could be filled with textured cardstock in the retiring color you ordered.

There has been a tremendous response to the announcement that several Stampin' Up! colors would be retiring. Although, Stampin' Up! felt it would be able to keep filling orders for cardstock in retiring colors through the month of May and then put them on a "while supplies" status in June, they are not able to do so.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this causes to anyone, but I will do my best to help you get your orders in quickly and will keep my fingers crossed your cardstock orders will be filled. I strongly suggest that if you are ordering cardstock in retiring colors that you place your order online HERE. And remember you can order 24/7 online!

Please order retiring colors of cardstock as soon as possible so you are not disappointed!
