Life is good!
Latest news from Leadership indicates that the Idea Book and Catalog and the mini catalogs will see some changes this year. I actually think they might be good changes. The Decor Elements and Simply Adorning lines are being discontinued, so that will shave a few pages off the IBC, but the mini catalogs will change to twice per year, become 8.5"x11" and have more pages! Excellent! We haven't heard all the official details yet so stay tuned and I'll share as I hear. I do know that our current IBC will expire on May 31st, instead of June 30th as printed, because the NEW one for 2012-2013 will go live on JUNE 1st!
A new product coming soon - like March 1st! - is an insert for the Simply Scored tool that will allow diagonal scoring! This means envelopes!!! Did I mention...
Okay enough drama! I just can't believe that Stampin' Up! keeps making things better and better! During Sale-a-bration there is an excellent promotion for those of you who might be on the fence about signing up. $125 for the starter kit, with NO SHIPPING CHARGE, AND a free paper pack or digital download each month for the first year! Wowsa! Talk to me!
I know you came to see some stamping, so I will share cards I made a few days ago, when I got my new mini stuff out to play. What do you think?
Both cards were made for a coworker who was leaving our office. The top card is larger so all the staff could sign it...and the bottom card is the one from just the four girls in her department. Both cards were made with Pacific Point and Pear Pizazz cardstock and inks. I used the new Framelits and Edgelits that are in the new mini...love them...as well as the new pleated ribbon around the silver glimmer heart. Want to know a secret? On the top card...the sentiment was PRINTED using My Digital Studio! So that qualifies that card as a hybrid card!
Oh...another announcement from Leadership....starting February 1st, you can download a 30 day trial of the My Digital Studio program! FREE! Amazing! If you are local, I am happy to give a quick instructional session for those who want it....just let me know!
Okay, done posting. Gotta get into the classroom and figure out the projects we will make at Christy's workshop....later.....
