What is Your Retirement Plan For This Weekend?

Retirement Plan and pen, business concept

What is your retirement plan? I don’t mean the one where you turn 65!  I mean what is your retirement plan for not missing out on Stampin’ Up!’s Retiring Products!  Can you believe this is the last weekend for the current Stampin’ Up! Catalog, and, don’t forget, the Occasions Catalog?! Both of these catalogs will come to an end on May 31 at 11:55 Mountain Time (for online orders). Select products have discounts up to 50% off!  All current Bundles are retiring as “Bundles” although some stamp sets and dies have carried over into the new catalog but will be available separately. So if the Bundle is still available now, get it for 10% off. If both stamp set and dies are on sale, check the math to see which is the better deal.

Shopping Is Good at Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Retirement Banner Sun Is Setting 2017

Shopping is good at Stampin’ Up! and only going to get better! There are stamps and products retiring to make room for new stamps and accessories. Some are discounted up to 50% off. All Bundles are retiring although some of the stamp sets and dies individually are not retiring, they just won’t be in a Bundle in the new catalog.  However, a few are cheaper if you buy them on sale individually rather than in the Bundle.  

Here’s an example:

Basket Bunch Photopolymer Bundle  Reg. 46.75

Products are only available while supplies last, except for stamp sets, which Stampin’ Up! manufactures, so they will be available through May 22.

Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Banner 2017

Quick and Easy Easter Tiny Treat Box

Quick and Easy Easter Tiny Treat Box

Make a quick and easy Easter Tiny Treat Box for a little gift or a table favor or even a decoration in your home!  And you can eat the candy later!  The Stampin’ Up! Tiny Treat Boxes make this project so quick and easy. If you don’t have any “Easter grass” to put inside, just cut narrow strips of cardstock and moosh them up with your hands, unless you have the old Paper Crimper, which is what I used to get the crinkly effect.

My project was made super-quick because I already had extra Easter figures cut out while doing another project. I had already stamped and die cut the Easter bunny, carrot, chocolate bunny and little bunnies with the Basket Bunch Photopolymer Bundle. The Bundle includes the stamp set and matching framelits dies and is on the Stampin’ Up! Retirement List. Now the Bundle at $46.75  in the Occasions Catalog has always been the best deal if you wanted both the stamp set and the framelits, but now that the Retirement List is here, it looks to me like the best deal is to buy the Basket Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set on sale at $16.80 and the Basket Builder Framelits Dies on sale at $15.50.

This set can be used for other occasions, not just Easter, so don’t worry that you don’t have time to order and use it now!  There is always next year, but even now you can use bunnies for any happy occasion and certainly the basket and flowers. One day I made a baby card with the bunnies that had nothing to do with Easter.

The Retirement List was released yesterday so be sure to check it out early so as not to be disappointed if any products sell out early!

  • Retiring stamp sets will continue to be manufactured by Stampin’ Up! in Kanab, UT until May 22, then it will be while supplies last.
  • Some items on the Retirement List are discounted, but not all.
  • Bundles in any catalog are only priced as bundles with the 10% discount for the first year in the catalog, after that the items may be available separately.
  • Tools and accessories are available “while supplies last”.

Be careful that you are not choosing one of the foreign language stamps unless that is what you want! With so many things to choose from, sometimes we choose the wrong number item!

More information later!  Just go enjoy the list and the shopping!

Last Day of Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration 2017!

Sale-A-Bration Brochures 2017

This is it!  Today, March 31 is the last day of Sale-A-Bration! This is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotion of the year so don’t miss out!  Just spend $50 on any Stampin’ Up! merchandise and choose a FREE GIFT from the Sale-A-Bration products!  A few are no longer available but there are still plenty to choose from! No limit to the number of gifts you can earn!

Need suggestions?

  • If you ever wanted a Big Shot, this is a great time to buy one! The Big Shot comes with the platform and cutting pads for $110.  That earns you TWO FREE Sale-A-Bration gifts! If you want to buy some dies or anything else for $40 more, you will be at $150. You will receive THREE FREE Sale-A-Bration gifts PLUS 10% in Stampin’ Rewards….so at $150 you will get $15 to spend on MORE products!
  • Stock up on Adhesives!  You’re going to use them anyway, might as well get $50 worth to keep on hand….or less plus other stuff, like cardstock!
  • Stock up on the outgoing In Colors while they are still available! There could be a rush when the Retirement List comes out in April.
  • Your husband called and said you should buy anything you want today from Stampin’ Up! Go for it! (especially in $50 increments!)
  • Buy a 3-month Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription on your Stampin’ Up order – or even if you subscribe monthly, put the 3-month prepaid subscription on your order and this will be used before your monthly subscription and then revert back to your monthly order. (It’s easy, really!) The only caveat is that if you ONLY order the prepaid subscription to get a free Sale-A-Bration gift, you will have to pay minimum shipping to receive the SAB gift.  So add on some other Stampin’ Up! items you want to make it worthwhile! But it’s still a way to get a free SAB gift!!

Have fun doing your Stampin’ Up! shopping today!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Making a Birthday Card With Easy Adult Coloring

Making a Birthday Card With Easy Adult ColoringMake a birthday card with easy adult coloring using the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (143830) during the biggest promotion Stampin’ Up! has, Sale-A-Bration! Sale-A-Bration is in full swing now and we have about another month and a half to go. During Sale-A-Bration with every $50 purchase, you will get to choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration item from the special brochure.  One of the items you can choose is a pack of the Inside the Lines Paper which fits in with the adult coloring trend.  There are different patterns in the package of paper so you can choose what you like. There are many ways to use this paper as well.

At first glance you might think the only way to use this designer paper is to color every single image in the design.  You certainly CAN do that but it might take awhile. However, coloring is supposedly a stress-reliever so it might be good for us to do that on some of the pages!  If you are looking for an easy adult coloring method to make a card, just grab a sponge and color across the card with various colors of ink, or color randomly around on the card.  There is no wrong way.

For this card, I started with a Calypso Coral card base. Then I randomly chose five ink colors: Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz. I started sponging a line of ink going across the card front, the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, until I’d used all the inks and filled the card.  I did go back, since the card base was Calypso Coral, and sponged a little of that color in between each of the other colors.  I should have stopped before I did that, but it is okay! No one else is going to look at that card and say, “She never should have sponged that extra Calypso Coral on to the card!”

Inside the Lines Adult Coloring Birthday Card

The greeting is from the Better Together Stamp Setfound in the  Annual Catalog. I die cut that with the oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. For an embellishment, I added the Pool Party 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I think my card turned out very pretty and was easy to make, if not a little messy on the fingers! Try the Stamping Sponges and cut them into smaller sized pieces if it suits your purpose. Some stampers have a  quarter or smaller piece of sponge designated for each Stampin’ Up! color. Always start lightly sponging, you can always add more ink.  This way you don’t get the color too dark to begin with.

To see another way to work with this Inside the Lines Designer Paper, check out how I made a card in THIS POST.

With your next $50 Stampin’ Up! order, you might consider choosing the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper to make projects like this Easy Adult Coloring Birthday Card.
