Good morning! I can’t even sort of tell you how happy I am to be laying in bed when this post goes live today! It was a close call – late Thursday, it looked like we were going to have to work today and tomorrow! It was looking pretty bleak there for a bit, y’all – I was feeling pretty bummed by the whole thing. Then today, we got a reprieve! Whoo-hoo! A real-live weekend! 🙂
I’ve shared a couple of cards in the last couple of days that used two stamp sets that I just love. I’ve made several cards with them since they came out in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog. I’m referring to the beuaitufl Sweetbriar Rose wooden stamp and the Love You Sew Host stamp set. So – I wanted to lead you on a little stroll down memory lane. Take a look-see at some of my favorite past cards with these two stamps – you can click on the pictures and go right to that post to get a reminder of how I made each one! Enjoy. 🙂
First up – the gorgeous Sweetbriar Rose from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog…
Now – take a look at some of the fun cards you could make with the Love You Sew host stamp set!
These are both great stamp sets – I really hope you’ll snag them before they’re gone! 🙂
Now – the next order of business! It’s getting awfully close to that time of the year – yes, I’m talking about the Stamps-N-Lingers 2016-2017 Annual Catalog Shares! Can I get a big Whoo-hoo!!! 🙂
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve shared some pictures of the new Designer Series Papers, Paper Stacks, Ribbons, Trims and Embellishments with you. I know you’re excited! So – what’s a catalog share?
Well – it’s a chance to get your feet wet in the new catalog. If you were to buy one of each new paper set, one of each new ribbon and embellishment and trim….you’d spend over $460!! Yikes!
But – with catalog shares – you can get a taste of every new paper. Ever new ribbon and trim. Every new embellishment! For a fraction of the cost.
I’ll be ordering all the goodies on 1 June and will have them shipped using the 3-day shipping option – then when I get home everything will be there ready for me to cut up, package and mail! Deadline to order is 30 May.
I’ve added the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog Shares Page – look at the top menu and head over there to get all the details, okay?
TTFN – I’ll see you tomorrow!
Now’s the time to get your favorites – with discounts of up to 50% off! – before they’re gone. Stamps will be available thru 31 May – everything else is while supplies last!

PRICING CHANGES IN THE 2016-2017 ANNUAL CATALOG
Stampin’ Up! notified us they’ll be increasing the prices on a few things in the new catalog. The following items will be increasing in price beginning on 1 June:
- 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock packs of 24 sheets will be $8 per pack
- 8-1/2″ x 11″ mixed color card stock packs of 20 sheets will be $8 per pack
- 12″ x 12″ mixed color card stock packs of 20 sheets will be $11 per pack

Bundle pricing will be changing as well. Here are the details for the bundles beginning on 1 June:
- Bundles will no longer carryover outside the life of the publication. Once the sales period ends for the catalog, the bundle will no longer be available at its special pricing, even if the components of the bundle are still available.
- Bundles will now be offered at a 10% discount.
But – the good news is you’ve got plenty of time to pick up those last few bundles that you’re wanting (at the 15% discount!) and stock up on card stock in all of the colors before the prices increase in June!
