Don't forget to get your order in for the retiring accessories! Many things are already sold out!! Please check here daily for updates on what is still available! CLICK HERE FOR UPDATED RETIRED LIST !!

I have a page to show you, just for your creative side! :)

I did this layout for a challenge at The Scrapping Nook's "Summer of '69 Contest." The challenge was to use NO journaling, but to let your photos tell the story. We were allowed a title and dates/names if we chose. I had these photos from Easter 2007.... Sophia was napping. JA and Z set out decorating cookies for their Sunday school classes, and then decorating eggs!

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Whisper White, Certainlyl Celery, Brilliant Blue)

Another Fun Layout

I did this one, and it sat on my scrappin' table for several months, half done. At a challenge over at The Scrapping Nook I was able to complete it! It's photos of JA's big win to Great Wolf Lodge!! :D

Here are two photos of the same layout, but one is different. Which one do you like best?? Leave a comment, and I will draw to win a prize!! Forgot to put a deadline on this draw... how about Sunday night at 9 est! :)

Die Cut Stamps are coming!

All New Stamp Sets Are Die Cut!

When it comes to quality stamp sets, Stampin' Up! has been an industry leader for several years. Our original, exclusive stamps have earned the prestigious Creating Keepsakes Readers' Choice Award for best rubber stamps eight years in a row, and every year we work to make them even better!

We're excited to announce that all new stamp sets in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalogue (including new hostess sets) will be die cut for your convenience! We know you enjoy the flexibility of custom mounting your stamps, and with these die-cut sets, all you'll need to do is pop, peel, and place before you begin stamping.

Only our new stamps will be die cut; sets carried over from the last catalog and those on the dormant list will still require trimming. But, each new set will feature a die cut icon so you and your customers will have no problems identifying die-cut sets.

I have used the die cut stamps from Sale-A-Bration, and they are amazing!! So start saving for all those new stamp sets and accessories coming in August!
