Get Those Refills Today

With the Stampin’ Up Retiring List just around the corner (April 21st!), it got me to thinking about the 2012-2014 In Colors that will be retiring.  The In Colors are trendy and only meant to be around for 2 years.


This doesn’t mean they can’t come back by popular demand!

Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz were In Colors once and now they are part of our regular collection.

Once the retiring accessories list comes out on the 21st, guess what the first things to sell out are?

Ink Refills.

So that means that all of you who have bought any of the 2012-2014 In Colors like

Midnight Muse

Summer Starfruit

Primrose Petals

Rasperry Ripple

Gumball Green

need to call me, email me, text me or order these online BEFORE the 21st.

You may want to get some card stock or other coordinating accessories if you have the ink pads.

These photos will individually take you to each item.

You don’t need to find the item numbers if you are emailing me with your order.  Email me at

and on to this Week’s Weekly Deals! Some good ones this week, too…

weeky deals 3-11

To see them individually, go HERE .  Once there, click on each item for description and item number.   Of course here are m 2 cents on this week’s deals.  The circles dies are a good deal but you get more circles with our Circles Collection Framelits instead.  If you are wanting to cut fabric or metals or thicker craft materials, then these dies are the way to go.

The Dress form Pop -n Cuts will need the base to pop into. See page 188, for 39.95.  You will also need extended cutting plates for your Big Shot to cut it all.

Love the 2 embossing folders and the Set of 2 mini folders on sale this week.  The mini set of 2  measure 4-1/2″ x 2-7/8″ each and the oval coordinates with the Extra-Large oval punch we still sell.

The Peek-a-boo die is a great deal, too.  I still use mine and it can’t go out of style. It creates windows and doors, perfect for Advent calendars, etc.  Uses standard cutting plates.

Off to work on this week’s Stamping School videos.  I have NO idea what to create this week and being on vacation has gotten me off my stamping mojo.  Send me some artsy vibes!

Here are this week’s Deals!

weekly deals feb 25 2 weekly deals feb 25 3 weekly deals feb 25 4

Note from Linda:  This framelit is also offered as a bundle with the coordinating stamp set, Backyard Basics page 79.  To get the stamp set with this deal, order Clear Mount # 129528 or wood mount # 129255
The clear mount bundle with stamp set and framelits is 36.50. Using this weekly deal and ordering seperately is 36.66 so it’s 16 cents more.  I would highly suggest getting the bundle instead with the coordinating stamp set!

Here’s a fun new tool for your crafting toolbox and it’s just released today!

  This little guy makes an impression!  Literally. It’s a mini big shot that only embosses.  29.95  Item #132657

Now, it can never take the place of the Big Shot, which cuts everything as well as embosses.  This lil guy would be good for crops or craft days where you want to take an embossing machine with you.  It’s light!  Or maybe I may get one for my classes when I want to emboss at one  table and cut with my Big Shot at another table.


Here’s a quick video from SU:

Just because it’s SAB time doesn’t mean there aren’t Weekly Deals every Tuesday!

Here are this week’s sale items good through February 3rd.

I’m off to Houston for a week for the Stampin’ Up Leadership Convention!  It will be a bit more chilly than Florida but we certainly cannot complain.  I hope all of you dealing with the big storm are ok, warm and safe.  If you are heading to Houston too, look for me so we can swap and say hello!

I’m looking forward to seeing the theme and displays.  SU events team does an amazing job with all the details and creativity.  Swapping is always fun and I’ve got about 100 of them ready to be glued together on the plane.   (if a demonstrator sits next to me on the plane, look out. I’m bringing 2 bottles of glue:)

I’ll be updating my blog at the end of each day with swaps and highlights.  If you like to see what’s going on there throughout the day, be sure to Like my Stamping School Facebook page. I’ll be adding snippets of the convention there!

Stampin’ Up is continuing with the weekly deals so here they are!  Good from January 7th – January 13th.  If you see something you like, you can order online or just email me. I’ll have my computer there to place orders at the end of the day in my room.

The sad news is that one of my favorite items won’t be available after today, unless they make it into the new catalog in June.

The Expressions Thinlits dies, set of 3.  What’s sad is that we really need it for Valentine’s day and weddings because of the LOVE thinlit in the set.  I called this am to verify and unless they change their mind (and they could:) today is the last day to get it.

Happy New Year!

Matt and I had a fabulous time in New Hampshire, seeing family and friends.  The snow was so pretty, just enough to dust the ground and trees but not enough to get snowed in this year.  This view was from a wonderful little restaurant in New Boston, NH:
