New Stamp Stuff


I am so excited to have received my "preview" order. I got busy late last night using some of the goodies. I think I really like the new "In Colors" now that I have seen them in real. These cards were made using a template that I came across, I think from sheetload of cards. The red paper is a bit like Ruby Red, but it is actually Riding Hood Red. The patterned papers are from one of the new designer series papers, Bella Rose. In the photo you can also see the new Scallop Border Punch....really cool to play with too!
I hope you enjoyed these, I hope to have another something to share with you tomorrow...oh wait, I can show you what the cover of the new catalog looks like... no, I don't have it yet but someone at convention shared it.

Discontinued Accessories Part 2

Many of you have been asking me why Stampin' Up! would be getting rid of things like all the "eyelets"... I did a little reading on the demonstrator website and here is the explanation they are giving us.

"Items on this discontinued accessories list will be available while supplies last or through August 10, whichever comes first.

Products are marked as available or unavailable. If an item is unavailable, our supply is exhausted and the item can no longer be ordered. This list will be updated every afternoon through August 10.

Keep in mind that the status of any product may change quickly based on demand.
With most catalogs, some accessories are completely discontinued while others are redesigned or reconfigured for the new catalog. Sometimes popular items are "discontinued" in their current packaging or style to come back with improved packaging or added product features. This year, no accessories are being reconfigured."

I hope this explanation helps a little. We are not given any more details and will know the minute the catalog is released to us all.

If you would like to pre-order the new catalog, feel free to email me or call me (250)545-1072 and leave a message on my machine. If you plan to join one of my stamper's groups, you will receive one for free. I will be putting in a pre-order of the catalogs shortly.

Exciting Announcement from Stampin' Up!


Online ordering 24/7 is coming!

How it will work: if you go to the main SU website and start your order, you will be paying 10% more and shipping will be higher.
HOWEVER!!!
If you order through my online site, you will get all the regular benefits AND save those extra fees.

I am really excited about this as it will give you all the chance to order what you want when you want, especially if I am out of town or at work.

This does not mean you can't have workshop orders through me, my classes and stamper's groups will continue!

Please, let me know your thoughts on this, good or bad!
http://inkinwithval.stampinup.net/ will be your ordering site.
I believe this will begin sometime this fall.

Die Cut Stamps coming from Stampin' Up!

When it comes to quality stamp sets, Stampin' Up! has been an industry leader for several years. Our original, exclusive stamps have earned the prestigious Creating Keepsakes Readers' Choice Award for best rubber stamps eight years in a row, and every year we work to make them even better!

We're excited to announce that all new stamp sets in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog (including new hostess sets) will be die cut for your convenience! We know you enjoy the flexibility of custom mounting your stamps, and with these die-cut sets, all you'll need to do is pop, peel, and place before you begin stamping.

Only our new stamps will be die cut; sets carried over from the last catalog and those on the dormant list will still require trimming. But, each new set will feature a die cut icon so you will have no problems identifying die-cut sets.

Is this exciting or what?
