Share What You Love Early Release Bundles for May

I don't know about you but I get very excited when Stampin' Up! bundles products together because that means SAVING money!

And this month (May 2018), the bundle of products Stampin' Up! have put together are even better because these are sneak peek products! That's right! They are being released early and the only way to get them this month is by purchasing one of the bundles.

Read to see these bundles? 

I've listed the bundles below but for more detailed information, click on the title of the bundle.

There are 3 bundles to choose from:

Just Getting Started Bundle 

A Little More, Please Bundle:

Gotta Have It All Bundle:

Below is a closeup of the Statement of My Heart Single Stamp:

The only way to receive the Statement of My Heart stamp set pictured above is in the Gotta Have it All Bundle. It will not be available for purchase in the new catalog.


Stampin' Up! has even created a video featuring these three bundles.

Check out these adorable samples are made with products in these bundles:

May is the month you're going to want to purchase your Share What You Love Bundle! In June, these items will be available for individual purchase (excluding the Statement of My Heart single stamp) but the savings and FREE products in each bundle will no longer be available.

Be sure to use the May hostess code when you purchase your bundle through my online store:

**With your qualifying order, you'll be added to my 50/50 Board for a chance to win a $50 shopping spree from me!**

As a bonus, you can also start ordering your new 2018 - 2020 In Color Ink Pads!

A Color Re-Vamp is Heading Our Way

April and May are some interesting times of change in the Stampin' Up! world. Many products are retiring and many new ones are on their way. PLUS the Stampin' Up! color families are changing, too! It's an exciting time for sure!

On May 31, 2018 thirteen colors and the five 2016 - 2018 In Colors will be retiring. The graphic below shows these colors:

 *Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.

Important note about these retiring colors: The ink pads and ink refills (reinkers) are only guaranteed through May 7, 2018. The card stock, ribbon and accessory items are only available while supplies last.

Click here to shop retiring inks and other products.

If you're wanting to finish out any of your color collections in the current ink pad style for the retiring colors above, you'll want to do so before May 7. (A new ink style pad is coming that you're going to LOVE! More details to come!)

Check out the new colors that are coming:

And now, the unveiling of the all-new color collections that will begin on June 1, 2018:

Some interesting changes with the colors:

  • Black, white and vanilla will be in their own group called The Basics. That meant Stampin' Up! could add 3 additional colors to the Neutrals color family.
  • Archival Black and Archival Gray will not be offered in the new catalog so get your reinkers now.

I know that's a lot of information to take in at once. I'm thrilled with the re-vamp of colors and the changes that are coming. It will be hard to say goodbye to my favorite colors but I can't wait to start playing with the new ones.

Happy Stamping,

Last Chance / Retiring List is Here!

I can't believe we're almost to the end, once again, of the current catalog! The year sure flies by so quickly! So, it's that time of year to say goodbye to many of our favorite products and it's your last chance to get them while you can.

Due to the high demand of retiring stamp sets, retiring stamp sets will be guaranteed available through May 25; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last.

Ready to see what is retiring?


Can you believe all these great products are going? I know sometimes it's hard to part with all these retiring products but it's time to make room for the new products coming out in the new catalog! So get these deals while you still can!

Every year another set of In Colors retires. These are some of the products that run out the quickest. If you love the 2017 - 2019 In Colors, then you'll want to place your order as soon as possible. The re-inkers and card stock generally sell out in a day or two.

Happy Stamping,

Remembering and Helping a Special Friend

This is a hard blog post for me to write. Honestly, I wasn't even sure how to start it or where to begin and so I've been putting it off until now.

My long-time friend, customer and fellow stamper, Joanne, went to be with the Lord early in March. This was a shock to say the least. She had had health issues (don't we all?) but seemed to be on the mend after a stay in the hospital. She was home less than two weeks when she passed away.

Since that time, I've been helping the family sort through her things. She was an avid crafter and not just in paper crafts (I think that was her favorite, though.) She loved to make jewelry, stained glass, glass art and all sorts of other projects. She liked to make beautiful things and card making was her passion. She made hundreds of cards and donated them to many different organizations. She had been stamping with me for over 10 years and was one of my very first (and longest) customers.

I have since acquired boxes and boxes full of her Stampin' Up! stamps, paper, markers, embellishments, and punches. I also have some Tim Holtz dies as well as Cuttlebug accessories, a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Cutting Machine (I'm not sure it works though. Still have to test it.) 

With that being said, I am helping the family sell these items during a church-wide Rummage Sale at Central Christian Church (Fort Worth) on Saturday, April 14 from 8 am until 4 pm. 

If you or someone you know would be interested in these items (or  want to just come shop a BIG rummage sale), please help spread the word and share this event with your friends and family.

I took a few pictures of SOME of the products that will be for sale. (This isn't even half of the products. I just didn't have any more time to take pictures.)

I know my friend would be happy to know that her crafting things will be put in the hands of others who like to make beautiful things, too!

The 50/50 Board is once full once again and all the numbers have been selected. That means it's time for another $50 shopping spree give-away! One lucky winner will receive this amazing prize - $50 to spend however they'd like on their favorite stamping products!

An update on the Scrapbook Expo:

My friend and upline, Sharon, and I will have a booth again at the Scrapbook Expo this year. In years past the Expo has been held at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. However, this year the location has moved to the Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas. All the details about the Expo including classes, crops, shopping times and more can be found on the Scrapbook Expo's website here.

I look forward to seeing you at the BOGO Sale or at the Expo this month!

New Year with a New Focus: Cards for a Cause

Happy 2018 everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I'm so excited to share with you a new focus for me for 2018!

You all know that I love to stamp and create handmade cards - that's why I do what I do. However, I have not been sending them out as much as I would like. And, that's the best part about making the card in the first place! Knowing that someone is on the receiving end who might need a pick-me-up or just a little something to brighten their day is what it's all about.

So, for 2018, I'm starting a new event and focus for my card making called Cards for a Cause. I want to be more purposeful in not only making cards but donating them to different organizations to help spread a little bit of sunshine! Think of all the people who we could reach together!

Who would like to join me as we make handmade Cards for a Cause?

Friday, January 26
6:30 pm
My Home (west Ft. Worth area)

Here's how it works:
  • The idea is for all of us to gather together, make cards and then donate them to the chosen monthly organization / charity.
  • Participants can bring their own supplies to create their own cards OR use my supplies and instructions to make the card I'll be working on.
  • If you have a stash of cards at home already, you can bring and donate them as well.
  • There's no cost for this event. It's all about making and giving!
Be sure to join me for the first Cards for a Cause event on Friday, January 26th at 6:30. RSVP here.


Sale-a-Bration 2018 has begun! It's the biggest and best promotion of the year! For every $50 purchase (before shipping and tax), you choose a FREE exclusive Sale-a-Bration product. Plus, new this year: Earn even bigger rewards when you spend $100 (before shipping and tax). Just look for the $50 and $100 reward icons throughout the Sale-a-Bration brochure here.


I'm excited about this new year as we create for a cause together!
