New Catalog and First Project

The new 2012-2013 Annual Catalog is out!!  You can find it here.  It’s a little smaller that the previous ones, but that just means the new and improved “mini” catalogs (Holiday and Spring Catalogs) will be bigger and better.  And the Holiday Catalog willbe coming out in August.  Cannot wait for that to happen.

The first project I’m posting this week is a fun 3D project.  It’s a Pinwheel.  I made it with the new Polda Dot Parade DSP and I love that paper.  Give that paper a try and see if you like it too.

2009-2010 Last Chance List

In anticipation of the new catalog (2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog) Stampin’ Up has published their Last Chance List.  Hundreds of products from the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog and Definitely Decorative brochures are retiring. Now is the last chance for you to get them before they’re gone for good!

Here are a few things to remember:

  • Last Chance accessories are only while supplies last.   Because these items can go quickly, you may not receive all the items you ordered.
  • Order deadline is June 30, 2010.

UPDATE:  Ok, I just got through going through the retired lists. 

1.  Punches:  In case you haven’t noticed, Stampin’ Up is going to redesign all their current black punches into the new punches.  So if you like the old black punches, buy them up quick before they’re gone!!

2.  Retiring Colors:  Be sure to stock up on any cardstock, ink pads, refils, etc that might be retiring that is your favorite.  Because once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Island Oasis Topiary

I created this topiary from a tutorial I saw on UStamp with Dawn for her current Big Shot blog (paid subscription).  I was going to be hosting my own Big Shot Workshop and was hoping to get some ideas.  While I love this, it’s way to time consuming for a make-and-take so I’m going to use it as one of my door prizes.

Supplies used:  Island Oasis DSP, Old Olive Cardstock, Old Olive 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Build A Flower Bigz Die, Island Floral Bigz Die, Adhesive, Glass Jar, Dowel, Styrofoam Ball, Hot Glue gun.
