April 2012

Off to Disney World!!!

It was pretty rough...but I got up at 3:00am on Sunday morning to get ready and head to Milwaukee for the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Disney World!  Had to get my nails done (HAD TO...the wallpaper killed them!) and what could possibly be more fitting than this???

Hailey and Austin were full of energy (urghhh) as they battled on the ping pong table at the airport.

Austin's mom, Lisa is with us too!  We arrived at the Boardwalk Resort and promptly jumped into a rental car to head to Cocoa Beach for an afternoon of sun and fun.  Then off to Cape Canaveral for a sharking fishing adventure...and what an adventure it was!!!  Here's Austin and his mom.

Austin with the 1st of 6 sharks that he and Hailey caught that night!

If you've ever had a large fish on your line - you can imagine how hard these sharks fought!

Hailey with Captain Brad and her 1st shark!

What a beautiful sunset - that's Cocoa Beach in the background and there were people swimming right THERE while we were catching sharks!  I may never swim in the ocean again!!!

This was the largest shark the kids landed!

We were pretty exhausted when we arrived back at the resort - but it was all worth it!!! 

Poor Lisa - as soon as we got to the fishing area - she spent the rest of the night right here - doing "you know what" over the side - sicker than a dog!  I knew things were going downhill for her when she asked the captain - "if someone was to get sick - where should they do that at?"  Bless her heart - she never once asked the kids to end their shark adventure!

I'll try to post again tomorrow - I'm beat.  After a morning of running around and playing in the pools - we hit Hollywood Stuidos for some fun in the evening!

Retiring Accessory List!!!

Screen Shot 2012-04-15 at 1.00.03 PM

Get them before they are gone! The Retired Accessories and Definitely Decorative (including Décor Elements) lists are now available and won't stay around for long, as these are limited in quantity and can sell out fast.  Some are even discounted from 25% up to 70% off - WOW! 

highly recommend placing your orders early as things will sell out. If you have not yet completed your collection of the 2010-2012 In Color ink pads, card stock, markers, refills, ribbon, you'll want to get them asap!

Things to note:

  • Classic Ink Pads: will be replaced with a new exciting "firm foam pad" being introduced with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.  The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in trun, better stamped images.
  • Craft Ink Pads:  will no longer be offered, except in black and white
  • Stampin' Stampin' Write Markers: only select markers will be available individually (will still be offered in color collection assortment packs)

Retiring Accessory List!!!

Screen Shot 2012-04-15 at 1.00.03 PM

The retiring accessory list is available today!  

 

CLICK HERE TO VIEW RETIRING ACCESSORY LIST! - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

ClICK HERE TO VIEW RETIRING DECOR ELEMENTS LIST - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

CLICK HERE TO VIEW REITIRNG STAMP SET LIST - UNLIMITED SUPPLY

Here's some clarification on a few odd retirements:

  • Classic Stampin’ Pads are being reconfigured to feature a new, firm foam pad.

This is not a color change. The firm foam pads are a product improvement that will provide better ink coverage for your stamps, and longer life for your ink pads. 

  • Some product offerings, such as 12" x 12" card stock or individual Stampin’ Write Markers will be altered so that not all colors will be offered individually (some will, but not all).

You can place your order here or email me:

GOING AWAY!


Screen Shot 2012-04-24 at 8.06.47 AM

Our 2010-2012 In Color collection will be retiring May 31st.  I'm really going to miss these colors!  It always takes me a little while to warm up to the new In Colors...but once I do - I don't know how I can continue stamping without them!

I wanted to remind you to get these colors before it's too late!  Don't forget to get the reinkers for your stamp pads too!

I love this color combination - it's Pool Party, Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry.  It just POPS!  And the stamp set - Creative Elements - is one of my favorites.  When I first saw it in the catalog - it really didn't jump out at me....but then all the samples I've seen are amazing - TRULY A BEAUTIFUL STAMP SET!
