Loving the new stamp sets!

I have to admit that I haven't ordered much from the new catalog yet. I'm anxiously awaiting sale-a-bration to make a huge order so that I can get some nice freebies along with all my new stamping stuff!

I did order a few new sets from the preview mini catalog in December, but with the holidays and everything, I really didn't get a lot of cards made with them. But now that things have quieted down (so to speak) I have been having lots of fun with them. One of my new favorites is 'A Little Birdie Told Me' set. There are so many occasions you can use this with that we don't often see like: getting a promotion, being under the weather, etc... plus you can use it with just about any sentiment from any other stamp set.

So I thought I'd show you just a few samples of some of the things I've been doing with this set. I'm also loving our new patterned papers (as you can probably tell by the cards I've been making). These feature the 'Bali Breezes' patterned paper collection that I just can't stop using!

So hope everybody has a great week, and hope everyone has the time to play with some of their new stuff! :)

Sale-a-bration is coming!

Hi everybody!

Just wanted to remind everybody that Sale-a-bration time is rapidly approaching. From February 1st through March 17th, everytime you spend $50 on Stampin' Up! products, you will be able to choose one item free from the Sale-a-bration mini catalog (many of you will be receiving one of these in the mail shortly, and it will also be posted on the Stampin' Up! website on Feb 1st). There is no limit on the amount of free merchandise you can earn. This year, in addition to five different stamp sets, there is also a set of rub-ons available for free! Also, anyone who hosts a workshop during Sale-a-bration can earn a free item when you reach $300 in total sales at your workshop! The card on this post was made using one of the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets (called 'Merci') and these sets will never be available for sale, only for free! I know I've been saving up for this big sale, so please contact me if you would like to make an order, host a workshop, or if you would like more information about Sale-a-bration!

January Stamp-a-Stack coming up!

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! I just wanted to remind everybody, that my January all day stamping party is coming up on Saturday the 12th! You can read up on the details in my previous posts. I have a raffle for a level three hostess set from the new catalog, I'm giving away a free new catalog with every $50 purchase, and I'll have my retired stamp sets for sale at discounted prices.

I wanted to post a couple of pictures of some of the cards we will be making on Saturday. We'll be using four of the new stamp sets from the brand new Spring/Summer 2008 catalog. Please let me know if you'd like more information or are interested in attending!

Thanks, everyone!
