You may have noticed in the new catalog that you could purchase a set of the *new* markers in our line in one bundle. But what if you already had the In-colors from last year? A lot of people explained to Stampin' Up! that they had those colors and would like to purchase only the colors that they didn't have.
Stampin' Up! listened! From now until the end of October, you can buy the new marker kit OR any of the colors in it!

I love to organize my papers, inks, etc. Sometimes the first thing I try works great and sometimes it takes years to find a solution that works best. Over the years, I have stored my 12x12 papers in different ways - hanging folders, racks, and drawers, but recently I heard about this method and thought I would give it a try - 12x12 photo albums!
I use one page protector for each print, so for a standard pack of Designer Series Paper with 2 each of 6 different double-sided papers, it takes 6 pages to hold them. I use each page protector to hold the full sheets as well as scraps so I never waste a full sheet of paper when I don't need to. I made up little tags with each name and the colors that are used.
Depending on the number of papers you have, you may have multiple binders. Currently, I am using 2 binders because I only keep the current papers in them. I love paging through and seeing all the pretty patterns!
Check out my Stampin' Up! store to see these wonderful new papers!

One of my favorite Stampin' Up! activities is my monthly Stamp Club. I feel like my Stamp Club ladies are each my BFF! And I am sure they feel the same way towards each other. It's more than a stamp class -its a get-together where we laugh and talk and share, and of course, create! I have heard more than once how important Stamp Club is to the members... husbands ask "What's for dinner" and they reply, "You're on your own - I'm going to Stamp Club!" It's a chance to get away and have some fun and add to your stamping supplies a little bit at a time.
One of the benefits of Stamp Club is that you can participate in a monthly card swap. Each month, members sign up for the following month's swap. If someone has a lot going on, she may decide not to swap. That's what happened in June - typically, we have 8-10 swappers but in June, there were only 5. But they were great! You can see a little bit of each one above. If you want to see the full cards, be sure to follow me on Facebook as I will be showing the full cards over the next week or two.
And if you are interested in Stamp Club, here are the details:
If you don't live nearby, Virtual Stamp Club may be a better option for you. Check out the details HERE.
Let me know know if you want to check out Stamp Club - the next class dates are Sunday, July 7th at 3:00 OR Monday, July 8th at 6:00.

What if you could start your own busines? Yes, being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is a real business - if you want it to be! Some demonstrators make a 6-figure income! I do have to add that those "results are not typical", but it is possible. Even more possible is that you can make a few hundred dollars a month to pay a bill or save for a vacation, or even to support your habit so you don't have to hide your Stampin' Up! purchases from your husband (wink!)
If you live in the San Antonio area, you are invited to come to my Opportunity Hour this Monday, the 17th at 6:00 in my studio. Just email me for directions. It only takes an hour and if you like what you see, I can help you get started. You are also welcome to stay for our Team Meeting afterward where we share ideas (business and creative) and learn some new techniques.
Now that you have had a chance to look at the new catalog, what do you think? Isn't it fabulous? And the samples - OMG, how awesome are they? Did you know that you can look up what supplies where used for every sample in the catalog? Just click on the Catalog link at the top of my page and then click "Stampin' Supplies" under the picture of the catalog. It's a pdf file, so you can save it to your computer or tablet.
For example, Page 110 of the catalog shows a really cute card and envelope:
In the Supplies List document, you can search for "110" and easily see what it takes to make this project:
Awesome, right? If you have ANY questions, just email me!
I love, love, love Stampin' Up!'s framelits, especially when they coordinate with one of our amazing stamp sets, but I admit that sometimes it is tricky to keep the framelits in place when I put them through the Big Shot. Well, Stampin' Up! has fixed that problem with our new Magnetic Platform (130658)! Check out the video:
It is recommended that you use flat, smooth cutting pads (113475) with the magnetic platform as it will work much better. If your cutting pads are worn or are curling, you may want to purchase a new set when you get your magnetic platform.
Psst - I'll tell you a secret: Often, when Stampin' Up! comes out with a new product, the demand exceeds the supply and they run out. If you want the magnetic platform for YOUR Big Shot, don't wait too long - order today!
