May Club Project

Thursday night was my Stampers Club night, I had a great time chatting and stamping with them. They are all wonderful ladies and I am so glad that they could all make it to class. I have been seeing these beautiful pansies all over the place, and being a big gardener myself, I thought it would be fun to try it out for one of our club cards. This is what I came up with:

Give Credit where credit is due!!! I was inspired by the very talented Gretchen Barron. I think the original creator is Dawn Olchefske , She has a nice video on how to make them.

If you are in the White Bluff, TN area and would like to attend next months class (June 17, 2010) let me know, We'd love to have you join us.

Inventory Update

The Stampin' Up! inventory of Sage Shadow 12" x 12" card stock (item 107079) has been depleted and they are unable to order more. 8 1/2 x 11 Sage Shadow cardstock is still available as of this post, but retiring cardstocks are running low. If there is a color that you must have please don't wait long, I'm not sure how much longer they will last.

Reminder: The Retiring Stamp sets list and Retiring accessories list will be posted June 1st. The Accessories will be while supplies last, which will include all the retiring colors; ink, cardstock, designer series papers, ribbons, buttons, brads, etc. Get your list ready now and order early!

Color Renovation

You may or may not have heard, Stampin up! announced last month a Color Renovation. I am so excited for the Color Change!! While I will miss some of the colors that are retiring, I am overjoyed about some of my favorite past In Colors returning as core colors and the 5 brand-new core colors. Check out the flyer for the New Color Collection (click here) that Stampin’ Up! will be offering in the New Catalog July 1, 2010. In order to make room for the new colors we will have to bid a Fond Farewell (click here) to some colors, 30 to be exact!

If you want to stock up on the colors that are retiring, I would highly suggest do so sooner than later. While Stampin’ Up! knew that everyone would want to stock up on retiring colors, the orders have been greater than anticipated and they may run out.
