Project Life and Stampin’ Up!

Since I’ve been super busy with wedding preparations, I have neglected to let you know of some of the awesome news from SU!…the biggest of which is Project Life!

Not familiar with Project Life from Becky Higgins? Well if you’ve been intimidated by scrapbooking, let’s just say this is the easiest solution and one I’m thrilled about! Simply slide your photos into a pocket, write on a card for the next pocket and you are done 🙂 While more will be available with the new catalog on June 1st, here’s what you can order NOW (click on any of the pictures to take you to my Stampin’ Up! Store) :

Get Refreshed

I love change! And the newest announcement that the Stampin’ Up! color palette is being updated or “Refreshed” is good news! Say goodbye to these colors and make sure to order any card stock, ink refills, markers or ribbon quickly as they are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:

 What will the new color palette look like? Here it is and it becomes official on June 1st:

What I love best: Most of the returning colors are past IN-COLORS, so you may already have them in your collection! The only truly NEW color will be Smoky Slate (in the Neutrals).

And of course, we’ll be welcoming five fresh new 2013-15 In-Colors in June, too, so stay tuned for that.

Meanwhile, don’t forget that today (April 8)  is the last day for free shipping on everything in the store, including print products!!

MDS2…your new Guilty Pleasure (and BLOG CANDY)


In February when I went to Beth’s Scrapbook getaway, I took my computer and created an album of my trip to Prince Edward Island with My Digital Studio and FINALLY had it printed last month by Stampin’ Up!’s professional print partner. It is abso-freakin-lutely GORGEOUS! AND it has the same number of pages that my hand-made scrapbooks hold (which are 3″ thick) while my new MDS album is only 3/8″ thick!

For a gal who just packed and carried 32 BIG ALBUMS in a house move, I am SO IN LOVE with MDS right now. And I’m ordering MDS2+ because I NEED it! AND I’m making a commitment to use it before Beth’s next getaway. In fact I ought to get another album finished this month to take advantage of THIS offer:

Color My World!

Why ARE there so many songs about rainbows?
My husband always teases me about referring to colors in Stampin’ Up! vernacular: “That’s not orange,” I’ll correct him, “That is PUMPKIN PIE!” Every color has a proper name, and I use it!

Well, Stampin’ Up! made a wonderful announcement on Monday about our new COLOR RENOVATION and I’m very excited to share it with you! If you have ever renovated a room or a whole home, you know that the new look is better than the old look…and the same is true here! As of July 1st, our new color COLLECTIONS will look like this:  

You will see some returning IN COLORS from years past, and a sneak peek at a few NEW colors that are surely part of every perfect rainbow 🙂 This renovation will help you look at colors in a whole new way, and I’m drooling with anticipation, myself.
But before you get too excited, we must also say farewell to some well-loved hues:

If these colors have been some of your favorites, you have until June 30th to order ink refills for your pads, stock up on card stock and matching accessories! Visit my website to order anytime. 

I guess the answer to the question is that a rainbows bring color and wonder to the world, and Stampin’ Up! is doing our best to bring that delight to you.
