Clearance Time

First, thanks to the Inova ladies for attending my October workshop. I could have spent so much more time with you! I just love how you are soaking up all the techniques!! How many ways can we make Christmas trees?? The ways are endless!

I wanted to make sure you knew about a wonderful clearance sale that SU is running right now, while supplies last. They have retired colors (inks, brads, papers, etc..) and other retired merchandise at a HUGE discount. Just go to my SU website and click on "Shop Now", then click on Clearance Rack on the left to see all the items. Items must be ordered through my demonstrator website and not placed directly with me (sorry).

Don't forget to check out the Holiday mini catalog on-line for Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and yes even Valentine's Day ideas and supplies.

Start stocking up on your Christmas and Holiday card supplies. I am in LOVE with the new Cherry Cobbler paper (just ask the Inova ladies!), pair it with very vanilla and some old olive and you have a beautiful color combo.

Here's a sample of one of the cards me made at my workshop. I really love the SU embossing folders (vintage wallpaper used here) because they cover every bit of an invitation size card (unlike cuttlebug that doesn't quite go to the edge). I also love any type of paper folding or cutting technique that adds some depth to a card.
Enjoy this chilly fall weather!

It's been a while...

Hey there stranger! It's been a while since I last blogged. When I noticed the date I was quite surprised. It doesn't seem like that long, but I guess the summer has just flown by.

There have been lots of exciting changes in the recent months.

SU now has a new catalog (good July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2011)

SU also has a new Holiday Mini Catalog. (good through Jan. 3, 2011)

Of course we announced the clear mount rubber stamps a while back, but I love these more and more. You'll find a clear block storage case in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I LOVE anything that can keep me organized. I'm growing my collection of clear stamps. I love how they take up less space to store and how I can place my images more accurately on my artwork.

Now through Oct. 18 you will receive a FREE CRAFT TOTE if you sign up to be a demonstrator. Boy are they CUTE!

Our colors have been re-vamped so make sure you check out the new color families and the new 2010-2011 In Colors.

My website is still open for ordering ANYTIME, day or night!

Don't forget to check out our collection of DIGITAL images. That's right! SU has been adding more and more of the images that we have for stamps to our digital catalog.

SU has ventured into jewelry making (Simply Adorned Line), and even designer FABRICS! Our product line seems to be expanding all the time and there is something for everyone.

Sale-A-Bration January 5 - March 31, 2010

It's that time of year. SALE-A-BRATION! What does this mean? For every $50 in merchandise you order, you get to pick a FREE SALE-A-BRATION item.

But SU is taking it one step further. This year, instead of picking an item from the SAB catalog, you may instead pick a stamp set from the current catalog that is $15.95 or less. Your choice! Pick from the SAB catalog or pick from the current IBC (idea book and catalog).

Check out the SALE-A-BRATION catalog.

Below is a sample using Nursery Necessities and the SAB set Whimsical Words: (Enjoy!)

New Mini Catalog arriving January 5th!

January 5th - Be sure to check out the new Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalog!

SU is now selling CLEAR MOUNT STAMPS and acrylic blocks! The great news is that you can still get the stamp sets in wood blocks (foam and rubber) too. The clear mounts stamps are a little less expensive than the wood mount stamps. You can order your clear acrylic blocks to use your new clear stamps.

When ordering, please make sure you choose the product number that goes with the type of stamp set you want. They are clearly marked with a W (for wood mount) or a C (for clear mount).

And now for a card sample using the set "Great Friend". Enjoy!
