New 2018-19 Annual Catalog is LIVE and BOGO Sale

The day we’ve been waiting for is here! The New 2016-17 Annual Catalog is live and I’m SO happy to be able to offer my BOGO sale again this year!


2018-2019 Annual Catalog – Click to view the new catalog on-line!

(This will take a few minutes to load!)


In preparation for the new catalog, I’ve cleaned house!  All of my products (stamp sets, accessories, Big Shot dies, etc.) that have retired are now available FREE to my customers. There’s a HUGE amount of products I need to get rid of to make room for the new!


Here’s how it works:


Step 1:   Shop from the new catalog! You may place your own order, just remember to use the Host Code B3APVEYR.  Any order not using the host code will not qualify for the free retired products.  (You can email me first the items you want on the retired lists to be sure you’re going to get them while you’re planning your order from the new catalog.)  


Step 2:  Choose from my retired stamps, designer paper, Big Shot dies, embossing folders and framelits, punches, ribbons, and more!  And it’s all FREE!  You will shop my retired items using the amount of money you’ve spent on your new catalog purchases, before tax and shipping.


NOTE: If you want to be sure to get specific retired product FREE and aren’t sure what you want to order yet from the new Annual Catalog, no worries!  Just email me your wish list and I will put it on hold for you and let you know what you can spend from the new catalog to match the dollar amount.


Right now, you can go through my retiring list before things sell out!  Email me right away the items you want so that I can reserve them for you while you’re planning your order for the new.


Step 3:  Wait for your order to arrive! Please be patient, as this is quite a process, and in order to be able to give you such a great deal, it takes time. Please know that I’ll work as quickly as I’m able!


Don’t have a catalog yet?  You can view it online!  If you still need a hard copy, it’s not too late.  Just email me that you intend to buy products from me this year, and I’ll be happy to put one in the mail to you.  This year, you’ll receive 3?x 3? squares of the new 2018-20 In Color Cardstock so that you can check out these gorgeous colors!


FREE ACCESSORY WITH PURCHASE  – AND new this year – spend a minimum of $100 with me during my BOGO sale and receive the hottest new accessory from the new Annual Catalog completely free – the new Glitter Enamel Dots in Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo!  That’s an $8.30 savings!  Offer expires on the free gift June 15th, 2017.


Because of the BOGO sale and free accessory special, there will be no June Card Kits free with an order.


BOGO Information “fine print”
All free items are ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST and first come, first served, so you’ll want to act quickly!  I’ll read the emails in the order in which I receive them.   If you’re the 2nd person to request an item, I’ll put you on a waiting list in case payment from the 1st person falls through.


If there is a person’s name next to the item, it means that they’ve requested that item but the transaction hasn’t been finalized.  If the item has a strikethrough, then it is no longer available.


Prompt Payment:  Because items are only available while supplies last, prompt payment is expected for all orders.  Please be ready to finalize your transaction within 24 hours – I’m not able to hold items any longer.


Shipping & Tax:  You won’t pay Stampin’ Up! shipping or tax on the retired items.  You will pay the shipping on the cost of my sending your retired products to you (USPS shipping rates).  You’ll also be responsible for paying the shipping & tax on your order from the new 2016-17 Annual Catalog.  If you live locally, you may save shipping by picking up your retired products, but they will still need to be paid for within 24 hours of selecting them.



“Real Time” Availability List




I’ve created Google documents for what’s available for my BOGO Sale.  I also have quite a bit of inventory from my daughter’s stash that I’m including in the BOGO Sale, too!  You’ll view what’s available in “real time”; that is, as things are spoken for, I’ll be updating the lists and you’ll be able to see those updates.  This way, you can double check availability as you shop.

Fun with Stampin’ Up! Decorative Masks

Dots & Stripes decorative masks card collection


Hubby was away all day today, and I needed a break from packing to move, so I decided to play with the new Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks by Stampin’ Up!  If you haven’t noticed them yet, they’re on page 205 in the 2014-15 Annual Catalog.  There are two sets – Hearts & Stars and the ones I chose to use, Dots & Stripes.

There are several ways to apply ink to the Masks.  For my cards today, I chose to fill several Stampin’ Spritzers with rubbing alcohol and Ink Refills.  It takes quite a few drops of reinker – just add more if your color isn’t as vibrant as you’d like.  Then simply use your spritzers to add color to your cardstock.

I took pictures of the steps along the way so that I could explain how I achieved the variegated colors.

First, I laid down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper.  Next came a piece of 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock.  Then using my grid paper to line everything up, I laid on my Decorative Mask.  You’ll see I have my Stampin’ Spritzers already filled and ready.  I’ve used Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Night of Navy on my first card then Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo on the other three.

Mask 1

I started by spritzing on Daffodil Delight over the first two rows of the Decorative Mask.  Give a firm push all the way down and keep the spritzer moving from left to right.

Mask 2

Next I spritzed on Old Olive, trying to get a bit on the second row of the Daffodil Delight and also covering a row or two of the remaining dots.

Mask 3

The last spritzing, I used the Night of Navy spritzer to spray a bit into the Olive and the final row of dots.


Decorative Mask dots and stripes 5

Pick it up carefully after you’ve done all your spritzing so the ink on the mask doesn’t run off onto your cardstock.

And here’s the finished product!  I loved the background so much that I simply added a sentiment and no embellishments.  The skinny black border helped the colors pop out.  “Hello There” sentiment is from the Hello There stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes blue

Next I tried Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo with a sentiment from Geometrical.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 4

Then I got the idea to spritz at a diagonal!  Oh, this is so much fun and addicting!  Here I used a sentiment from Fabulous Four stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 3

And finally, rather than washing off my mask, I set a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the mask to soak up the excess ink and got the reverse design.  I think this is actually my favorite!  Sentiment is from Lots of Thanks stamp set.

Decorative Mask dots and stripes 2

To clean off the mask, I just ran it under warm water and blotted it dry with an old towel.  I can’t wait to use all of the other masks now!  So fun, quick and easy – and WOW!

Leave me a comment and let me know which card you like best!  If there are at least 5 comments, I’ll randomly choose one to win a FREE Dots & Stripes Decorative Mask set!  Customers only, please – no demonstrators!  The winner will be chosen on Thursday, August 7th, and posted on my website, so check back to see if you’ve won!

Pretty Petites and Petite Curly Label Punch – FREE!

We made this card at a team event, and I fell in love!  It's not my usual taste; I don't tend to do monochromatic anything!  But I love its little touches.

  • Night of Navy card stock is the base of this card, with designer paper from Print Poetry DSP Stack at the bottom.
  • More Print Poetry designer paper creates the 5 banners.  This little pack of paper is a must in my book!  So many prints and such a value!
  • Solid Very Vanilla card stock is dressed up with the Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder.
  • Love the coordination of the Pretty Petites stamp set and the Petite Curly Label Punch – both items you can receive when you place an order of $50 for each item during Sale-A-Bration.
  • I love the look of paint spattering on my cards, and the Color Spritzer Tool makes it so easy.  Just load in a Stampin' Write Marker, and squeeze – it's that simple!
  • The Boho Blossoms Punch is my "go to" punch whenever I need a little flower to accent something.  Trust me – grab one of these terrific punches, and you'll use it all the time!
