I have officially mailed out the NEW 2014-2015 Stampin UP catalogs to all who have requested one here on the blog or otherwise.
I mailed them all out on Monday, so if you have not received yours by today, please email me! Over the years I’ve learned about 5% never make it.
Those of you I’m seeing this week, you will get yours in person.
In the wee hours, if I find the Ipad on my nightstand, I might visit Pinterest. If I’m feeling unorganized, there’s a million ways to solve any problem. If I’m feeling plump that day, I may look for healthy recipes. If I’m feeling lonely, I look at boston terrier puppies….Pinterest is the fix for just about mood 🙂
Sometimes I look through the stamping and papercrafting, save a few for inspiration.
Sadly, this one had no name or watermark on it, as it often happens on Pinterest. I loved the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron. We don’t have the eyelets or that stamp anymore, but I made my own version of it.
Here’s my “PIN-spired” version:
I used the stamp set in the Occasions catalog called So Very Grateful, which will not be carrying over into the new catty so if you want it, get it before June 1st.
16.95 Clear Mount, # 133053
Pansy Punch for the flower, Bird Builder punch for the leaves. We have a super cool new DSP coming out in the new catty called Typeset – thin newsprinty paper that will be SO useful for lots of projects.
Thank you for the inspiration, wherever you are!
We have a new Photopolymer Stamp Set, Limited Availability which means while supplies last:
Super cute, I bought one. Cake measures 1″ wide x 1-3/4″ tall to give you an idea of size or you can print the flyer HERE for true size.
27 stamps, 13.95 Photopolymer
Here are this week’s weekly deals from Stampin’ UP:
I just received my pre-order of the NEW Blendabilities! Aren’t they pretty? They will be available sometime in June hopefully with our new catalog. Sets of 3, $11.95 a pack. (US)
There must be some chatter out there about these because over the weekend, I had 5 emails asking me what they are and when they are coming so I made a quick video:
(if viewing from your email, you may need to come to blog to see video)
They don’t take the place of our current markers, which are water based. These are alcohol based like Copics and will offer another coloring medium for SU lovers that coordinates with all of our colors easily.
Skin Tones, Set of 6 will be 22.95 when they are available.
This is a great example of how the Blendabilities work better then regular markers direct to paper. On the left is using the new alcohol markers. On the right, regular markers.
*by the way, I talked about the color remover. It really should be called a Color Mover – it doesn’t erase as much as ‘scoot’ it back into your coloring area. Wanted to clarify that as some people thought I meant it was an eraser. It did erase other spots for me if I went back and forth with it but not red!
I got a little crazy with the velcro dots but it does keep them all together until I find a better storage solution!
Be sure to use only Memento Tuxedo Black Ink with the Blendabilities, not StazOn which bleeds. The new Memento pad and refill will be available to customers June 2nd.
Goofing around on other papers with the new markers….SU suggests Whisper White.
Memento took 15 minutes to dry on vellum but it did dry eventually!
Another example of how vivid the new markers are! The left and middle were done with ink/blender pen and aquapainter/ink pad. The right is the Cherry Cobbler set of 3 Blendabilities.
Now for something you can buy this week!
Good from 5/6-5/12 Only
My thoughts on the deals this week….
I love the stitched ribbon, sad that it is going. Great deal on that ribbon since you get 10 yards! Perfect for bdays and holidays. The hearts a flutter stamp set is great but you will want the framelits to go with it – #130159 $24.95
So the deals this week may cost you a little more since you need things to go with them 🙂
