Retail Therapy Escalated!


New Online Store

Have you visited my new Stampin’ Store?

There are quite a few improvements that make your shopping better than ever:

  • It works seamlessly on desktops, smartphones, and tablets
  • Larger images for products and samples
  • More intuitive navigation and searches
  • BEST OF ALL- you can create a wish list and favorites!

Your account information and password will work with the new site, but because this is a new site you will need to sign in the first time you shop. If you had your browser remember your email and password, it won’t be saved anymore.

If you are unsure of your login ID and password, I recommend using the Forgot Password link to reset your password as soon as possible (see steps below)

Would you please visit my store, sign in, and select me as your demonstrator ASAP so I may continue to serve your creative passions?


New Store - Sign-in

Improved Navigation

It’s easier to find what you are looking for with navigation menus that expand. For example, the image shows what happens if you select “Stamps” from the Featured Products section. You can then narrow down your search by Season, and then refine it even more with a specific season.

Improved Filtering

When you are shopping you’ll see “Filter By” in the menu on the left.

You can filter by several options including size, price, product type, occasion, color, etc.

Wish List & Favorites List

You can also add items to a new list or Wish List from the quick view page, not just the individual product page. You could track product you already have on hand.

Retiring List: What You Need to Know

Last-Chance Products

As Stampin’ Up! transitions to a new catalog (coming in June) they have released a list of products that are retiring. Here are a few things to know about the Retirement List:

In Colors: All 2018-2020 In Color inks, paper, and embellishments are retiring. These items usually sell out quickly so don’t forget to add ink refills and extra card stock for your craft stash.


2018-2020 IN COLORS (retiring)


Stamps vs. Accessories: Retiring stamps are available through June 2nd. All other retiring items, such as paper, embellishments, and dies are only available while supplies last, so don’t want too long before ordering or you may miss out!


* Stampin’ Blends WILL be in the new catalog as a combo pack (a light AND dark shade of the same color) but will not be available to order individually.
* A NEW and IMPROVED adhesive option will be introduced in the new catalog, but if you need SNAIL refills before then, order early as they may go quickly.
* Yes, there will be a NEW die-cutting tool coming, and while you will see it in the new catalog, it may not be available to order immediately after the catalog goes live. But you’ll love it when you get it!
* I’ll be mailing catalogs to my active customers, and I’d love to serve your creative needs! If you’d like to order from me, shoot me a message and I’ll drop a catalog in the mail to you!


NEW Paper Trimmer!


Stampin' Up! Product

One of the essential tools a paper crafter must have is a paper trimmer. Tomorrow (November 1st), the NEW Paper Trimmer by Stampin’ Up! will be available!

As a demo, I was able to get mine early, and was excited to play with it. You are going to be very pleased with the quality, attention to detail, and improvements to the new trimmer.

In my opinion, there are good improvements to the overall design, but the biggest improvements are in the design and function of the cutting and scoring blades. The new blades are easier to hold, glide smoothly, cut cleanly, and don’t pull to one side.

TIP: When cutting, don’t press down too hard or you may create a bend at the edge of the paper. The blades are sharp and only need light pressure to cut really well!

Order your Paper Trimmer today, I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

Current Promotion


ONE: The body of the trimmer has a squared shape that’s easy to store on its side, light weight, includes a look for hanging, and the extension arm is extra-long to fit larger paper.

TWO: The clear cutting guide is wide and solid so it won’t warp when cutting and it clips closed automatically without having to close with a latch.

THREE: Cutting and scoring blades are larger making them easier to grip and the shape is centered so cutting isn’t skewed to one side.

FOUR: Cutting and scoring blades are easy to remove and can be flipped and used either direction, so if you tend to cut only up or down you can flip and re-use.

FIVE: Cutting blade is super-sharp and longer so it can easily cut 2 – 3 sheets of cardstock!

Crazy for Daisies: Get 3 Free Cards!

Did you know:

  1. Daisies are found on every continent except Antarctica?
  2. Daisy leaves are edible (they are high in vitamin C and can be added to a salad)?
  3. Daisies represent purity and innocence
  4. They are actually 2 flowers in one: The (usually) white petals count as one flower and the cluster of (usually) tiny yellow disc petals that form the ‘eye’ is technically another.

The beauty of stamping a daisy is that you can make them ANY color and with the addition of the Daisy Lane bundle to the Stampin’ Up! catalog, we now have 2 sizes of Daisy punches to play with…and they look fabulous in layers, as I demonstrated today on my Facebook Lunchtime Crafting LIVE:


This card opens like an overlapping gate and the 3-D flower curls back onto the card, making it feel ALIVE.

SPECIAL OFFER: 3 Free Cards!

I know you’ll love playing with the bundle (stamps + punch = save 10%) so I’m offering a BONUS to my customers: Order the Daisy Lane bundle from my Stampin’ Store (through July 22, 2019) , I’ll send you the supplies* and instructions to make 3 cards!

*Card stock and embellishments included. Ink pads and adhesive NOT included. You may use any colors, but the coordinating ink pads are Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy if you would like to add them to your order.

Here’s a sneak peek:


So go CRAZY for daisies and get ready to make some beautiful cards!

So Hoppy Together- What’s New at SU! Blog Hop

whats new at su headerHop on in! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are hoppin’ with exciting ideas to share with you. I am SO HOPPY you’re here on our blog tour that I chose the SO HOPPY TOGETHER Sale-a-Bration stamp set to showcase! 149725G

This stamp set is one of the items you can choose FREE with a $50 (US) purchase during Sale-a-Bration (January 3-March 31, 2019), so I selected a few items that you could order together that would allow you to get this stamp set free (see supply list at the bottom of page) AND make all these fun narrow notecards:


These cards are perfectly sized to put in a lunch box, add to a gift bag, carry a gift card or tuck in a pocket for a delightful surprise.

Super simple to make, you simply cut the 6″ x 6″  2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper (DSP) to into 4.5″ x 2″ strips for the front of your card, then use the 2-1/4″ circle punch to make the circles to stamp on. The kids would have a BLAST coloring these whimsical frogs with the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers! Attach the circles to the front of your card with dimensionals and you are finished.

Since the Narrow Notecards come in a pack of 20 and include envelopes, you may as well use the extra DSP to decorate the flaps of your envelopes: watermarked3(2019-01-05-1600)

Optional: You could use a sheet of your DSP and the Envelope Punch Board to create a box and give them as a gift! To make this box, use a 6″ x 6″ paper.  Punch and score on the Envelope Punch Board at 2-5/8″ AND at 3-1/8″, then rotate 90 degrees and line up the score guide with both of the first scored lines and punch and score again. Rotate and repeat on all sides, then round the corners on the reverse punch (top of the punch board). When folding to create your box, don’t fold down the top: Leave it open as shown!watermarked2(2019-01-05-1600)

It’s fun to shop when you get a free bonus! Leave a comment with the FIRST item on your Sale-A-Bration wish list and then HOP on over to Pia’s blog to be inspired with more S-A-B stamping (or back to Diane’s page if you read books from the back to the front!).

A Color Revamp

A question I fear: “What is your favorite color?”

Me: WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME CHOOSE? It’s like asking which child is my favorite: It depends on which one is making me happy at the moment!!

Just kidding (kind of)…but colors are the same for me: If it’s fall, I’m using earth tones for my creations. Am I trying to cheer someone up? Then it’s bright, vibrant hues. My favorite changes as often as my underwear!

Speaking of changes, I’m looking forward to this one from Stampin’ Up! in June:

color revamp

Keeping things fresh and on-trend, we are updating our palette…and you are going to love it too.

First, let’s bid adieu to our 2016-2018 In-Colors:

Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 12.48.30 PM

If you need refills for your ink pads, card stock and coordinating ribbon or embellishments of those colors, make sure you ORDER ASAP as they are always the first to be depleted!

We’ll continue our In-Color offerings, which are current and fresh hues that stick around for 2 years:

Then we’ll say good-bye to a few classic colors and hello to new (and returning) ones:

Color Revamp swatches

The NEW (and returning colors) will be available on June 1st, so start your wishlist.

Once we’ve done all the shuffling, the new color families will look like this, with Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White forming a new “Basic” Collection:
