Clearing Up Some Things

Let me clear up some things for you!
  • If you're like me, that teeny tiny print on the Retiring List is mind boggling! Even with my glass and the magnifying glass, it still hurts my eyes! It's either because of the print or because I keep going over and over it! Click HERE for pretty pictures of all retiring products! 
Retiring Products
  • A little tip...when you see certain bundles on the list, just that bundle item number is retired, not necessarily the stamp set or product. For example:The Bear Hugs clear-mount Bundle ($41.50) and the wood-mount bundle ($48.25) are retired. However, both the Bear Hugs stamp sets and framelits are not! 
  • You won't be able to "bundle" them anymore, but you'll still be able to get them in the new catalog!
  • Another example: The 2015-2017 In Color 8-1/2" X 11" Card stock and Classic Stampin' Pad Kit ($32.50) is retiring. But not the 2015-2017 In Colors card stock or the Stampin' Ink Pad. You get where I'm going with this.
 
Please don't get overwhelmed. Any questions, let me know. If there's something you really want that's on the list, order it now before it's gone! For my customers, if what you want is already gone, ask me! I may have it!

Dates to Remember...
  • MAY 3-31:2016-2017 Annual Catalog Preorder for Demonstrators
  • MAY 23:More Paper Pumpkin Past Kits Available
  • JUNE 1:2016-2017 Annual Catalog Goes Live to Customer and The new “Create with Gwen Loyalty Rewards starts!     
Very exciting time in the world of Stampin’ Up! Love my job!

Draper Fold Birthday Swaps!

Welcome Stampin' Friends!
As promised, although a few days late, I'm sharing the swap cards I created for Stampin' Up!'s Demonstrator Onstage Live Event last week! We swap card fronts with other demos who also made swaps, and everyone goes home with 75-100 different cards! Always fun to see what ideas others come up with. 

These are mine! Yeah, the Drapery Fold again! I think I like folding paper too much and just can't stop. 

 
Used the It's My Party DSP Series (retiring!) to create several different color combos. Card "fronts" are 4' x 5 1/4" to fit nicely on the front of a normal 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded card. Makes using all the swaps we receive easier. Find yourself in a hurry because you forgot a date or just don't have creative juices flowing that day...attach a swap to full card base, stamp the inside or write a quick note, and your good to go! 

I've been hooked of the Drapery Fold for awhile. Click Here for more cards featuring this fold. Try it for yourself and you'll know what I mean!  


Last week, at this time, I was in Salt Lake City, surrounded by All Things Stampin' Up! Can't believe how fast it went and look forward to meeting up again in November! 

Some SU products used to create these swaps!
