There are a few great announcements from Stampin' Up! that I am excited to share with you! First, the Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog will be available for purchase beginning on August 11th. I have seen a sneak peak of a few new stamp sets, and I think you will love what you see! Closer to that date, I will be hosting an open house so that you can get your own copy ($5) and enjoy a great make and take.
To make room for all of the dazzling new products, it is time to say good bye to some of our exisiting stamp sets. The retired list is now available for you to view at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/amycrilley/promotions. You may purchase these sets until August 10th and then they are gone for good. The retired accessories list will be released on July 21, so be sure to check back for that.
Stampin' Up has also just announced to its demonstrators (yesterday!) that they are expanding their product base to include elements that will assist you with home decor. Please be on the lookout on July 1st for an email explaining the exciting details! I have seen the new line, and I think you will enjoy your new options!
One final note...I would like to announce the opening of my online store. Items for sale include cards, crafts, stamp sets, and sewn items will be coming soon. Many items listed can be custom designed and purchased in quantities higher than what is shown if it is needed for a special occasion. If you are local and you would like to purchase something you see in the shop, you can choose to pick it up rather than pay shipping. You can view my shop at http://countingmyblessings.etsy.com. Fall and winter items will be available beginning at the end of the summer and will include creations that you will be sure to want to give to a friend, family member, coworker, party hostess or teacher for the holidays!
