Many Medallions Meets the New In Colors

Hi all!

The new Stampin’ Up annual catalog is just around the corner, June 3rd!
(if you ordered from me this year and haven’t received your catalog, let me know)
Bulk mail seems to be running slower amid the covid situation and I’m hearing from customers that catalogs are still be delivered in mailboxes, even just today.

I’ve been playing in the craft room this week, using some of our demonstrator pre-order goodies from the new catalog.  There is a cool background die called Many Medallions and I had an idea to weave some card stock or designer paper thru the ends:

I used all 5 of new In Color card stocks, from the top down they are Misty Moonlight,
Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Just Jade.

Each strip is 5/8″ x 5-1/4″, and it runs underneath and I popped the ends thru!
I did add a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of whisper white behind the strips since it brightened it up.

Here is the back side of a yellow version – This one was on white, but I didn’t like it as well.

It was so fun, I also did it with yellow and black:

This one was the new Bumblebee and Daffodil Delight card stock
under Basic Black.

*I also did another stepped up version using the Medallion dies on Stamping School for Sunday videos tomorrow – be sure to login to watch that one!

I originally added a simple sentiment banner but it got lost so I added
So Sentimental and Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Here was the banner version:

Aren’t those little white flowers cute?  That’s from a new punch coming out called
Confetti Flowers Border Punch.  It will punch out 6 flowers at a time, a few sizes.

Check out what my talented friend and team member, Cindy Brumbaugh, did with the Medallion die!  She turned it into a holiday card using the new Greenery suite.  So pretty and you can read the details how she created it HERE her blog.

Note – June 3rd, we will most likely have some items running behind schedule.
Stampin’ Up is still open and manufacturing but with Utah guidelines and smaller crews.  So I’ll keep you posted on things that may not be available on June 3rd.  Ordering will be turned off at midnight MT and is supposed to be back open around noon MT.

The background die is part of a sentiment bundle!
Many Mates Bundle #154083  $51.25
which saves 10% off of each.

The Many Medallions background die set can be purchased separately
without the bundle for $34   #153584


See how they trimmed the largest die down to give another look?

I like how they just sponged a little ink on the background paper
before laying on the die cut.

June 2nd – Last Day to order 2019-2020 Retiring Catalog items!

June 3rd – Midnight (MT) ordering will pause while they turn over for new catalog!  Ordering will be turned back on by noon MT June 3.

June 3-June 30th – Annual Catalog Host Promotion!  Any $250 order (combined with friends) or your own earns an EXTRA $25 in host rewards!

June 3rd – June 30th:  Starter Kit Special!  Sign up (or sign up again) for $99 plus tax, free shipping and choose $125 in products PLUS any bundle free!
(choose stamps/dies or stamps/punch bundles)

Go Stamp Something!

Reserve a Spot in Linda’s Annual Catalog Shares!

It’s my favorite time of the year with the new Stampin’ Up Annual catalog beginning on June 3rd!  I’ve been doing product shares for almost 15 years and it’s a great way to get a sample of the new designer papers, ribbons and accessories without having to buy all of it at once and have it all on hand for samples or for creating at home! (if it’s your first time for shares, see bottom of post for how they work)

** I offer free shipping on all my shares since I earn host rewards with my order and I share that savings with you as a thank you for ordering them with me.

We already know there may be delays on some products due to covid related issues.  I’ll order everything I can as soon as ordering opens. I’ll keep you in the loop and make decisions to wait or refund if I can’t get it quickly. I think we can all agree this isn’t a normal year for a catalog release!

Demonstrators are welcome to participate in my shares!
They are great to have samples on hand at your classes.
(if you are on my team, I have special pricing for you)

Here’s how a share works: For the designer papers, for every 8 of you that sign up I’ll Order all the paper. I’ll cut it down to 6×6 size and into 8 piles. So each person gets a 6×6 sheet of each style rather than having to buy a whole pack of each.
For the rolls of ribbon that comes 10 yards, I’ll divide it between 5 people.
Same with accessories – I split those between 5 people.

I’ll keep track and order based on the number of participants between May 27-June 2nd midnight for Round 1. Ordering for the new catalog begins June 3rd. I’ll sort and cut all the pieces for you. Then I package them up in my clear acetate boxes to keep them organized and mail them to you.
You should have your shares by the 3rd week in June pending backorders (I’ll keep you posted on those via email if it happens) 

Don’t forget we still have a few weeks left for the retiring products!

Don’t miss these 8 things….

Things that make you go, hmmmm?
With the retirement list out for a few weeks now, I’ve noticed some things on it that are surprising to me!  Odd things like stamps that are retiring but the punch isn’t. Or things I think are must have’s but are retiring and Stampin’ Up didn’t consult me:-)
These fall into the ‘what are they thinking’ category in my mind LOL

Before I get started, I love getting your notes and emails asking if I am doing my annual paper shares for the upcoming new catalog.  YES!  I love doing them and will be offering them again this year.  We have some possible slowdowns with getting ribbons and a few papers but I plan to have a good back up plan.  I’ll be posting those as we get closer.

So here are my top 10 hmmmms….just in case you need them like I did:(at the time of my post, all items were still available)

  1.  White Baker’s TwineYes, you can get it practically everywhere but I LOVE ours!  It’s soft, easy to tie, not slippery. It dyes with reinkers, markers and our blends where some I’ve had almost resist it.  It’s perfect.  It’s only 3.50 for 25 yards.
    I’ve ordered 5 extra rolls, I hope there’s some left for ya.
    Happy Tails (dog) #148682   $17     Sold Out except for French language
    Nine Lives #148703  $16 Photopolymer stamp set2. Happy TailsThe Dog and Cat punches carried over to the new catalog but not the coordinating stamp sets.  Hmmmm…..I don’t get it but there is still time to get the stamp set for both dog, cat or anyone who needs a pet sympathy card.
    here are the dog and cat punches in case you don’t have those yet either:

#144666 Cat Punch $18        Dog punch  #148543  $18

3. Stamparatus Replacement Plates
#149693  $15

I haven’t had to replace my plates yet and I use my stamparatus a LOT.   I just feel easier knowing I have a back up set in case something really bad happens to one of my plates.  Like when I accidentally leaned on my ipad yesterday and the screen shattered like hot water on an icy window.  Ugh.  If you have a stamparatus, it would be good to grab an extra set just in case.

4.  1/2″ Circle punch
#119869  $6

Why?  Why is this cute little guy on the hit list?  He can’t possibly take up that much room.  Really?  So useful for faux buttons, for snowman heads, for large eyeballs…through the years I’ve used him for a ton of things.  darnit.
(while you are at it, be sure you have the 1″ circle punch,
also on the retiring list.  #110868 $13)

5.  Classic Garage Metal Embellishments
#149485  $2.80

We still carry the Garage stamp set and dies so if you have those, pick up an extra set of these metal embellies.  I used the key for new home cards, also!  Super cute.


6.  All Glimmer (aka Glitter) Papers

Whaaaaat?  No sparkly snow paper in the annual catalog?
Surely there must be something else coming in the Holiday catalog for snow,
I’m trying to not get crazy about it. I only ordered 3 packs:)
Sparkle (white) #146957   $5
Rose Glimmer #146959  $3
Gold Glimmer #146958  $5

The other item that blew my mind was retiring our Dazzling Diamonds glitter!  I’d post it but it’s gone already 😦



7.  layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder
#152321  9.00

The perfect embossed background.  I used it a LOT.  It looked great for tropical, for holidays, for sympathy, with any flower.  I’ll miss it.


8.  Twinkle Builder Punch
#146321 $7.20
We will  always need baby cards.  Just when I think I’m too old for my friends to have babies, my friends have kids that have kids. So it never ends thankfully, because babies are cute.   We still have cute baby stamps but this punch is So easy to create baby themed cards.   I did this mini gift card bag a few years ago, you can see that post here

To see what’s retiring and what’s left, go to my store HERE

Go stamp something!

This one I used the Wild Rose die to make it look a little like a mask!
Birthday Bonanza designer paper.

Here are a few other ideas from the home office:



Stay in and keep stamping!

More items added to Clearance Rack!

Updated 4/15/20  My power is back on and it feels SO good:)

 

Hi all! I’m blogging from my phone and little signal today as we still have no power here in my neighborhood in NC since 2 am Monday. What a doozie!

So I’ll keep it short and sweet and hope it works on limited signal.

If you click on the Clearance Rack photo above, it will take you to my store. You can use the drop down arrow to search by New or < least expensive.

Things can go quickly so pop over and look this morning.

I’ll mail an extra goodie to you for ordering online with me! I won’t be able to take phone or email orders until my power returns. They are estimating 2 pm today- fingers crossed!
