Sent With Love Bundle: Ends April 30th! - Not a Single Stamp Card

Not a Single Stamp!
I love Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper because it let's magic happen even without a stamp!

Cutting out these spiky circles with paper snips took me some getting used to, they're not perfect but I kind of like imperfect sometimes. Quick little gift tags using some scrap Island Indigo and Calypso Coral I had laying around. The banners and sentiments and Bakers Twine all come with the kit.

This and That Bundle: Ends April 30th!

document your preparations for baby!

keep a visual record of your most recent vacation!

keep track of the Color Refresh, like I did here!
Get all this (except the toothpicks and paperclips) at a discount while you still can!

New Project Kit: Bloomin' Boquet

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!
Item 134542 $12.95
Available starting April 29, while supplies last.
Kit contents:
  • 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12" X 12" cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry
  • 13 Vintage Faceted Buttons
  • 13 green floral wire stems
Adhesive not included. (Glue gun recommended.)
Training Tips:
  • This kit makes a great gift, both assembled and unassembled. Your customers may want to give it as a fun do-at-home project, or create it themselves to give.
  • This kit can appeal to both stampers and non-stampers; the ease of assembly means anyone can do it!
  • Use this kit for a quick and easy class! Just provide some adhesive, and your class preparation is done for you.
  • Add your own finishing touch to the bouquet: place it in a vase, wrap it up in tissue paper, decorative ribbon, or twine.

Wood Mount Stamp Clear Cases from Stampin' Up!

If you love getting organized like I do, you've been waiting for this one:
Wood mounted stamp storage that matches our clear mount storage!

Introducing Stampin' Up!'s new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging. Empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4" x 5-1/2") will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2" x 5-1/2") will be $6.95.

But as you can see from the video, they can be used for SO MUCH MORE! Happy dance! Ideas are running through my head! What comes to mind for you?

KIDS: a 24 pack of crayons for the car ride with a pad of paper inside, one to hold all their batteries and handheld game cartridges, paper doll packs, containers for all those small toy accessories to keep from getting lost...

ADULTS: a notepad holder for big lined sticky notes, makeup case, a gift card and chocolate box, a premade card kit with SNAIL and a mini punch...

Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog--especially the new wood-mount boxes!
*At this point, incentive stamps will not be packaged in the new cases. And remember, translated sets are only available in clear-mount.

NEW Photopolymer Stamps from Stampin' Up!: Bombs Away Birthday

Photopolymer: Bombs Away Birthday! #133411 $13.95

We're excited to announce that our second photopolymer stamp set is now available. Bombs Away Birthday is a fun, unique set that will certainly bring a smile to anyone. Try it out today! To see the Bombs Away Birthday Stamp Set,
click here.

The Fine Print
•Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
•Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
•All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.

What makes them so great?
•They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
•They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
•Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
•They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
•We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.

Jump for Rhinestones!

This idea struck me as I was at the check out counter at Bookman's and flipping through their various sparklies and baubles. I found these froggies (I love frogs) but their bellies were empty! I practically shrieked to my husband that the new Big Rhinestones would be perfect. (Ah, the way Stampin' Up! changes your view of the world.) I then discussed if there was a past tense of 'bling' with the cashier. Blung? Nah, blung sounded weird so we agreed on the compound 'blinged out'.  Sorry the picture is blurry, it was hard to get these little guys to stand up because their backs are rounded too.

The green DSP is from the This and That bundle.
Large Rhinestones, Spring Catalog, #129324, $4.95 for 40

1. I cleaned their bellies with an alcohol wipe and let them dry thoroughly.
2. I then put a glue dot on the back of the rhinestone, even though they are sticky to begin with I only trust glue dots with non-porous surfaces.
3. Show off my new go to everyday earrings to husband.

I was also thinking you could use the Large Pearls or the sticky inserts from the Designer Build a Brads. If you did the clear brad cover, you could stamp a tiny bee or butterfly from the Itty Bitty set inside it's belly! Ribbit!
