Button Buddies Send Off Event Samples

As I was looking through the new catalog sneak peek that demonstrators got yesterday, I was excited by the changes with the designer buttons and realized this meant that all of the current designer buttons that match the color families would be retiring.  What I didn’t realize at first was that meant that my beloved Button Buddies stamp set would be retiring too!


I loved the cute images in this set and how they perfectly matched the different shapes of the designer buttons.  I had been planning to run a Button Buddies class but it kept slipping off my calendar but now, I HAVE to run it!

It is my last hurrah with this stamp set.  Here are two of the cards I had created for this class:

I mean, they are totally adorable images, right?!?  Smile

It’s Posted! The Full Retiring Accessory List Is Here!

Oh man, this is always the hardest retirement list for me to read.  I LOVE my embellishments… I know, I know, I hoard them a little too much and don’t use them nearly as much as I should be cause I “don’t want to run out” but it always makes me sad to see some of my favorites won’t be available anymore.

By the way – when you read the list, you will see all of the ink pads are listed as retiring, that is because full sized craft pads will only be offered in black and white colors and the Classic ink pads will be changing to a new firm foam pad. So, don’t worry, there isn’t a big color change coming. 🙂

So, here it is… the full list… and it’s a DOOZY!  But at least many of the items are on sale for 25%-70% off!!

Exciting upcoming dates – retiring accessories list, decor elements phase 3, and Sale-a-bration!

So, I’ve been spending too much time in the last couple days cleaning my house and hanging out on Splitcoast Stampers and my SCS blog group’s blogs (they are some super talented ladies – check out links to their blog on the right side of my blog).  All this web surfing and household cleaning has meant no time for stamping. 😦  But, I’ve been getting inspired and hope to have a creative blow out over the next few days. 🙂

In the meantime, I thought I would say hi and make sure you knew about some of the exciting upcoming dates for Stampin’ Up events.

The Retiring Accessories List – January 5th

I just realized this is happening on monday and I’m on the edge of my seat in anticipation to see what accessories are retiring with this catalog on January 19th.  Unlike the retiring stamps, which are available for sure until the end of the catalog; retiring accessories are while supplies last.  This mean that if you have a favorite accessory, don’t wait until the last day of the catalog to order or it might be gone.  I’ll post the list Monday morning and will keep it updated with availability each day.  But if something you love is being retired, I recommended ordering it right away!

Decor Elements: Phase 3 – January 19th 

If you haven’t seen or heard of Decor Elements, they are the line of products Stampin’ Up! has started for home decorating.  They are fantastic vinyl die cuts that are meant to be applied to walls, furniture, glass, dishes, the possibilities are endless.  The super cool thing about them are the fact that they are very easy to apply and fairly permenant; however, if you ever decide to take them down, they cah be removed without leaving residue or staining!  How cool is that?  Well, they are expanding the line to even more great designs and now are adding stencils to the mix.  I love the shelf set items that look like flower pots and book stacks that you apply on the wall behind a shelf.  I may have to get some of those. 🙂


Sale-a-bration – February 1st

Finally, this is the special event that many people look forward to each year.  This mini catalog is filled with special stamp sets, paper, and even ribbon that you can’t buy in the catalog.  In fact, you can’t buy them period.  Instead, you get them FREE with each $50 purchase.  Spend $150, and you not only get your normal free hostess set, $15 in free merchandise, but you also get 3 free Sale-a-bration products.  Thats a heck of a lot of free. 🙂 If you sign up to be a demonstrator, get another set for free.  Host a $300 workshop, another set free! Start browsing now to see what cool things are in store for this fun time and contact me to schedule a workshop now so you can be sure to make the most of this event.
