New Jersey Stamp-a-Stack

I received all of the products in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog last Friday.  Yes, all of them.  Living just three miles from the Stampin’ Up! distribution has some perks!  So, I worked hard this weekend to design the projects for my classes in New Jersey later this month.  Today I thought I’d share the Stamp-a-Stack projects.  As I expected, this class has been the most popular.  Saturday’s class is already sold out.  Sunday does still have 5 seats remaining.  Registration closes on Thursday!  So, don’t delay!

Everyone seems to love a Stamp-a-Stack.  What is that, you ask?  It’s a class where you’ll stamp a stack containing a dozen cards!  I’ll be designing 4 different cards.  You’ll get to make 3 of each of the designs.  Of course I’ll have all of the supplies pre-cut and ready for you.  And, the card designs will be flexible enough that you can change up the greetings to meet your card-giving needs.

Because this is my most popular class style, I’m scheduling two different sessions

Color Theory – Stampers Dozen

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!  Today we’re bringing you some Sneak Peeks from the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  Maybe you’re joining me from Janet’s Blog or Jodi’s Blog.  Thanks for finding mine!

I chose to feature the new Color Theory Suite of products.  It’s a pretty nifty suite.  It features images and shapes from all four seasons.  It could be the only stamp set and thinlits you ever need to own.  Okay, like that’s going to happen!  Ha!  BUT, it is extremely versatile.

Color Theory Card Supplies

Most of the products used on today’s card are Sneak Peeks from the new 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Many of them are part of the new Color Theory Suite of products pictured on pages 146 and 147 of the new catalog.  If you’re on my catalog mailing list, you should have received your catalogs earlier this month.

Here are the supplies you’ll want to add to your wish list.  I will warn you, demonstrators have stocked up on the Glitter Enamel Dots that they will probably be on backorder starting June 1st.  Apparently we blew through their supply faster than the Enamel Shapes sold in 9 months.  Yep.  They’re that gorgeous!  But, not to worry, Stampin’ Up! is expediting a shipment to get them to you as soon as possible but it may not be until July.

  • Colorful Seasons Bundle – 145348 – $54.00 (stamp set 143726 – $27 and thinlits 143751 – $33)
  • Glitter Enamel Dots – 144200 – $7.00
  • Berry Burst Ink Pad – 144083 – $6.50
  • Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon – 144133 – $7.00
  • Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack – 144193 – $10.00
  • Pretty Label Punch – 143715 – $18.00

I hope you’ll continue to hop along through all of the blogs. Enjoy!

Swap Card Sunday – Party Animal Suite

It’s time for another edition of Swap Card Sunday featuring cards created by demonstrators in North America.  Today’s cards all feature products in the Party Animal Suite on pages 4 and 5 of the Occasions Catalog.  These are all products that will be retiring at the end of this month.  At the time I’m composing this post, all of the products are still available – but that can change at any time.  Stampin’ Up! has promised to continue producing stamp sets through May 22nd.  At that time even they will be available while supplies last!  All other retiring products are already only available while supplies last.  So, don’t hesitate!  Their days are numbered!
