More Sneaky Peeks

I've been spending some time with my new 'toys'. Well, with the first batch of my new toys. I got all the new In Colors and had to play with them. The following is the result.
Granted, this pic isn't the greatest. But, these use (from left to right) Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron. I used the stamp sets Build a Birthday, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and the hostess set Happy Birthday Everyone.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time...HAPPY STAMPING!

Another Sneek Peek

Well, here we go again.  New catty time.  Oh and all the neat new stuff.  So, I've been playing with some of my new toys and I thought I would share it with you.

I think I am falling in love with the Tip Top Taupe, it's fun to say and easy to use.

I love punches, and here I got to use two different one's - the Label Bracket Punch and our brand new Banner Triple punch.  The words are from Sassy Salutations.
And the fun continues with a matching envelope made with our new Envelope Paper and the Envelope Punch Board.  This paper is sooo easy to make envelopes with, and the ability to coordinate it with our card stock makes for an elegant ensemble. 

Now won't this make you feel better.

Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
Happy Stamping, Diane

New Catalog Information

Stampin' Up! announced that pricing will change with the new 2015-2016 catalog. Most items have been rounded up to whole dollar amounts. (i.e. card stock packages that were $6.95 and are now $7.00). There were some decreases, most notable the embossing folders. They were $7.95 and are now $7.50).  The price changes (aside from a business decision for SU!) were made to make it easier to determine Host Rewards with the new catalog.

The new catalog brings new Host Rewards. They are now called Stampin' Rewards and are based on a percentage of your party's sales (without tax/shipping). For example: if your party total is $150, you will receive $15 in Stampin' Rewards (or 10%). If your party total is up to $299 you will still receive 10%. Once your party totals $300 your Stampin' Rewards jump to 12% or $36.00. Here is the new Stampin' Rewards table:

The sales periods for the 2014-2015 annual catalog, the 2015 occasions catalog, and the 2015-2016 annual catalog will overlap on June 2. Please note the following about the transition day of June 2:

  • All carryover items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog and 2015 occasions catalog will keep their 2014-2015 prices on June 2, while brand-new items in the 2015-2016 annual catalog will follow the 2015-2016 printed price. Beginning 3 June, all 2015-2016 pricing will take effect.
  • Current host program benefits will remain in effect on June 2. Beginning June 3, all new host benefits (Stampin' Rewards) will take effect.
  • On June 2, hosts may choose host items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog, the 2015 occasions catalog, or the 2015-2016 annual catalog.
  • Beginning June 3, hosts will no longer be able to choose host items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog or the 2015 occasions catalog, and the new Stampin' Rewards program will begin.
Thank you for stopping by today. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. Until next time...Happy Stamping!

Mother's Day

It was a beautiful day on Mother's Day, so we decided to go to the lake. Found a great little hiking trail and these pictures were taken from the trail. Great day!

Thanks for looking. Happy Stamping!

Sneaky Peek!

Stampin' Up!  2015-2017 In-Colors shared from: 
These are the new In Colors. From top: Mint Macaron, Watermellon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe.

Leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite. I'm still debating...not sure which I like best. But, the lace trim and the butterflies, and the resin embellies are all new, too. If you want a new catalog, leave me a comment and I will make sure you get one. (If you are one of my current Shoebox girls, you will get one when they are available).

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time....HAPPY STAMPING!
