We Moved...Oh Yeah & Big Shot Giveaway

As some of you know my husband and I are making plans to build and live in a "tiny house".  Ok, so it's not "tiny" approved, but 800 square feet is small to us.  To accomplish this, we have moved into a small apartment while we plan, build and then eventually move in. 

The last two weeks have been hectic for me!! While working a day job (Accounting/Payroll), I attended On Stage in Dallas, and moved.

Let's just say I have way to much stuff, excluding my craft supplies.  Gasp! Can we ever have too much of our hobby?!?!?!

2018 Stampin Up Color Revamp


From Stampin' Up! -

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, we decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.

With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products to view, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. Read on for more information!


There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep our color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog. These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.

If you have favorites on the retirement list, you may want to order these as early as you can!!!
 If you have any questions please let me know.

Last Chance & Retirement List for 2017 Annual Catalog

The Stampin’ Up Retiring List is here!

Starting today, April 9- May 31, 2018

While it’s sad to say goodbye to some of our current stamps and accessories, you are going to LOVE what’s coming out in June in the new catalog!  I just got back from On Stage and saw all the amazing products coming out.

BUT until then, we have to make sure we got all the stamps and accessories on our wish list from this catalog before they are gone!

The retiring stamps and accessories from the 2017-2018 catalog will be available while supplies last until May 31st; however, due to high demand for retiring stamps, we’ll keep producing retiring stamps through May 25th.  After that, while supplies last.  Keep in mind, accessories (anything not a stamp) are always while supplies last.

There are discounts on select products!

Accessories are only while supplies last.

Ok, grab your highlighters and mark all the sets and items retiring.  From there, you can decide what you can’t live without then order as soon as you!!!



If you have any questions please let me know!!!

I will be posting pictures over on the Ladybug Facebook Page of our time at On Stage!!  And you may even get a few sneak peeks at this Facebook Friday's Live!
