Catalog Changes!

BIG STAMPIN' UP! NEWS: Stampin' Up! announced at the Demonstrator Leadership Conference last month that starting this year, they have eliminated the  Mini Catalogs. The future Holiday and Spring Semi- annual Minis will be bigger and last longer (5 months vs. 4). The annual catalog (new In Colors, stamps, designer series paper) will start a month earlier (June 1, 2012) and the Holiday Semi-Annual Mini will start a month earlier as well (August 1, 2012--better timing for Halloween and fall projects). I'm really excited about this simplified schedule!

In addition, the Simply Adorned and D├ęcor Elements lines will be discontinued when the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog retires. IMPORTANT NOTE: THE CURRENT IDEA BOOK AND CATALOG WILL EXPIRE ON MAY 31, 2012 NOT JUNE 30, 2012. Details regarding the retiring stamp and accessories timing will be released at a future date.

NEW SIMPLY SCORED PRODUCT COMING SOON! Stampin' Up! has designed the ultimate accessory to the Simply Scored Scoring Tool for making envelopes, boxes and more--the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. As a demonstrator, I'll be able to order it later this month and start playing. It will be available for customer purchase March 1!

Love is in the Air

It is that time of the year. Hearts and symbols of Love are displayed everywhere. We are reminded to tell those, special people in our lives that they are loved! 

Mothers of elementary students are running around to get that cute little Valentine, for there kids to hand out. They still do this right?Life was much easier when I had Elementary students in my house. Little kids, little problems. Big Kids big problems. Somebody told me this once, and I believe it!

I am typing this while hiding in the basement, my living room has been taken over with a bunch of  "Senior teenage " girls. Cicely my wonderful middle child is celebrating her 18th birthday, with friends. It's more like an invasion of silliness. What is a mother to do? Feed them more pizza & cupcakes, then run! 

My Husband and I enjoyed our evening, eating out. We feasted with my Grandparents, at the Spaghetti Dinner in East Concord. This was a fundraiser for Explorer Post 20. Jordan, has recently joined the post. It was fun making her wait on our table. Spaghetti was wonderful. It was nice to get my Grandparents out again.  

So, you don't always have to tell them, you love them. Just be there! Actions speak volumes. Support them in their endeavors, and sometimes, surrender the peace and quiet of home, to loud giggles of teenage girls.A cute card never hurts either! This is one that I stamped with the Community Education Girls on Monday.

Totally A-maze-ing

 I won this stamp set from the Prize Patrol at Leadership. Sounds fun, doesn't it .. it was fun and the stamp set and mazes are fun to play with. 

Totally A-maze-ing can be found in the Occasions mini on pg 31. The mazes are located at the bottom of the page. You get 4 for $2.50!
 I could not wait until I got home to try, this card. This is what is called a Never Ending Card. 

Fold the flaps open and other image is revealed. 

Unfold again and yet another image is revealed. 

Imagine the surprise of the person, who receives this fun. I did present this to my daughter, who became frustrated and told me not to let her play with than any more!
