Love You Much 10/10

I still have spaces left in both of my Love You Much 10/10 camps and I sure hate to see anyone miss out on such great cards! I'm not tooting my own horn because most of these cards are CASE'd (copy and share everything!)from our SU! website where there are SO many talented demonstrators' cards displayed.

You can still purchase the Love You Much bundle because I bought several extras. This is a GREAT value, because it's 20% off, because you get a new set from the new catalog, and a new three-heart punch, too, and because you get the 10/10 for just $5 more with the purchase ($54.48, includes s/h and tax)! Or, you can just pay the usual $15 and come to the class.

Even though it has a sort of Valentine name, these cards could be used for lots of different occasions, and they're not all pink and red! Here's several samples. Call or email soon to get your spot!! There are two sessions - this Sunday, Jan. 25 from 2:00 - 5:00 or Thursday, Jan. 29 from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

Schedule Changes

Winter is never a great time for me, with the medical issues I have, which are boring and I won't go into...suffice it to say that I am rescheduling some of my classes for later in the month, so if you missed out on the Love You Much 10/10 and/or the Just For You Gift Card Bucket, you're in luck! I'll be running both classes a couple of times. I just need another day to get my couple of students' input on the reschedule, and I'll post the new one. In the meantime, here's the Just For You bucket - isn't it a cutie patootie?! Just $12, and you can use it for so many great gift giving opportunities! Plus, now that you have the idea, just think of the ways it could be changed for different people!

The new catalog is here!

The new catalogs arrived yesterday, and MY, OH, MY are they amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm always excited about our catalogs, but they went way, way over the top on this one.
To start with, it's beautiful - a gorgeous spring-y cover, with purple scalloped edging. The stamp sets are amazing - there are SO MANY new ones. And the accessories are just mind-blowing! Here's a little sneak peek:
Faith: Finally, thank the dear Lord, and I mean that literally, we have some lovely inspirational sets (including one called "Special Blessing" that I could have seriously used the year every third grade girl we knew was having her First Holy Communion - and with twin girls, we knew a LOT of other girls!) Manhattan: This series of sets and accessories channels New York style and fashion forward colors. I love the new corduroy buttons, the canvas cutouts that you combine with rub-on, and the industrial look of the jumbo brads and SoHo designer hardware, plus new floral die cuts called Blooms Again. Retro Fresh: cute and kitschy birdies, flowers, and owls for mid century funky fun. There's two birdy sets, "Cheep Talk" and "Good Friend", an On Board set with birds and owls, the full heart punch, flower assortment brads in colors, and rub-ons in colors!! Sweet Bella: continues with lovely florals and delicate designs of birds, flowers, and foliage and includes the number one coolest thing in the catalog, the Eyelet Border punch - if you loved the Scallop punch, just wait!!! Also, delicate, crocheted flowers in our patented colors, designer ribbons, and lots of fairy tale action including an "Ever After" stamp set and fairy tale die cuts of princesses, dragons, a castle, and more! Reduced Cost and Easier Use: The prices have kept steady, and there's a whole page of single stamps and mini starter kits under $10. Also, EVERY SET is die cut now! Sizzix: Lots and lots of new things for the Sizzix, many of them only available from Stampin' Up!. My favorite is one that has a moveable Sizzlit die that is just like our Curly Label punch, only bigger and with dots around it. You can place it anywhere on your card and punch out an opening for the Curly Label to go in. And, a butterflies die cutter - dimensional ones, if you want!
Obviously, the very best way to experience the new catalog is to have it in your hands. I have only three boxes, so they are going to go FAST. You can pick one up from me now - call first, please - or purchase one at the Open House Weekend, Feb. 6 - 8, for just $5. If you want it mailed, it's $10.
Watch for more class announcements asap!
