Stampin' Up!'s 25-year Anniversary Celebration

As part of Stampin' Up!'s 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will be released - one set per month - during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!

Spread a Little Love!

With Valentines Day approaching, I am starting to get a little lovey dovey.
I love this line of paper. It is not Stampin' Up! but it puts a smile on my face. Normally, my card classes are ALL Stampin' Up! materials. I wanted to do something different. I had so much fun making these cards. It gave me a chance to use lots of stuff that I don't normally use in my card classes.

This class will be held next Wednesday at 10:00AM and 6:00PM. The cost is $10.00. If you would like a seat in the class or a kit, please email me by Monday the 28th.

Thank you for taking a look! XO, Mimi

A Sentimental Journey

To help celebrate this wonderful time of year that Stampin' Up! calls Sale-A-Bration, I will be holding a class using some of the items that you can choose for FREE.
Just in case you are not aware of what Sale-A-Bration time is, it is when Stampin' Up! offers our customers the opportunity to earn FREE products for every $50.00 worth of catalog sales. YAY! This year, Sale-A-Bration runs from January 24th through March 31st.
The two products that I am showcasing in this class are the stamp set "Sentimental Journey" which is a set of 4 stamps and the Designer Series Paper Pack called "Sycamore Street".

This class will be on Wednesday, January 23rd at 10:00AM and 6:00PM. The cost is $10.00. Please R.S.V.P. to my email no later than Tuesday morning by 9:00AM.

I can't keep up with all of the changes!

Stampin' Up! is making sooo many changes I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed. I am going to try to squeeze them all in this post.

First, let me show you a class I am having THIS Thursday at 10:00AM and 6:00PM. It is four Valentine/friend/love cards for $10.00. Sorry I am just posting pictures but I got behind a little. Please R.S.V.P. as soon as possible to save a seat.
Now for Stampin' Up!s News
Wondering what the heck I'm talking about?  Paper Pumpkin is a new monthly crafting kit subscription from Stampin' Up! Starting yesterday, you can sign up to receive your own box of creativity each and every month.  Here is how it works:
  • Each month Stampin' Up sends you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, d├ęcor, and more! (They've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive. 
  • Your Welcome Kit (the first month of your subscription) includes a free gift:  a size "D" acrylic block, which you'll need to stamp your projects each month.
  • Your Paper Pumpkin will ship on or around the 15th of the month.  
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is just $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Still not sure?  Starting in early March, you'll be able to purchase a Try-It kit from my online store if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for just one month. 
Still have more questions?  Click HERE for more information.  Ready to sign up?  Click HERE to subscribe!
I am SOOO excited about this program!  I can't wait to get my magical red box of stampin' goodness in the mail!  I am so sure you'll love it too that I'm scheduling a FREE new event called "The Pumpkin Patch", where each month you can bring your box of goodness over to put together with me and my other stamping friends.  What a fun way to share the Pumpkin magic!!  Watch for "The Pumpkin Patch" coming in February!

That's Not all!!

You asked, and we listened! We're excited to introduce our new, very manly stamping kit: the Dude, You're Welcome! kit.
Guys don't always have the easiest time expressing themselves, but with the Dude, You're Welcome! kit, they'll have
  • Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
  • Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
  • Twelve gray envelopes
  • A Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad
  • An instructional guide (for the most novice stamper!)
Basically, the kit includes everything a dude needs to create the perfect manly card that any woman would adore, all packaged in an appropriately masculine box.
That's all I am going to throw at you for today. I will get the rest posted tonight so you can see it tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

Wiper Card Class at H2U this Saturday

This is the sample of the "Wiper" card we will be making at H2U this Saturday.
This card uses the new stamp set "By the Tide" that is in the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog that has just been released. Living in Florida, I think this is a "must have" set. It is very versatile. It can be used for so many occasions and for male or female cards. It is hard to see from this photo but there are glitter accents to the front of the card and the sentiment pops up like a "wiper" when the card is pulled open.
This is a fun and interactive card. All supplies and envelope are included in this class. A basic class kit is needed as well as a score board. However, if you do not have a score board, I am sure there will be  one you can use, at the class.
You will receive instructions so that you can easily reproduce many more of these cards, when you get home.
This class will cost $5.00. and starts at 10:30AM.
Since I am the vendor of the month, I will have a table set up, with displays, in the H2U lobby with some items for sale and any Stampin' Up! items to order.
I will also have a free "make and take" after lunch. I do not have a photo of the make and take yet but I am sure you will be happy with it. *wink*
