Good morning and happy Saturday! Hope you’ve got a great weekend planned!
And – I hope that part of your Saturday includes setting aside a little time to join me tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a live video tutorial! We’ll be on at 7pm eastern and will play with a super fun new bundle with a “3-Dimensional” flare! Can you guess? Take a sneaky peek:
I hope you can join us!
Tonight. 7pm Eastern. Right here!
Now – on a different note.
When I started this Stampin’ Up! journey almost 5 years ago, I thought the best thing about it would be the fun tools and gadgets. The beautiful paper and stamp sets.
I was wrong.
Now – don’t get me wrong – all of those things ARE most wonderful!
But – the VERY BEST part of this has been the people I’ve met – both in person and “virtually”.
And that blessing has been brought home to me in spades this last couple of days! I’ve had a box full of happy mail each day! Take a look at the wonderful birthday cards that have come to me this week!
This first one is a subscription to the Our Iowa magazine from my friend and teammate, Julie Johnson (guess where she’s from!)! They’re right – I DO have some nice friends! Julie has a great blog, by the way – give her a look-see over at Wild Wing Creations!
My friend – and upline/team leader extraordinaire – Amy Koenders (aka Stamp With Amy K) sent this beauty!
Karen Finkle, another good friend and teammate, created and sent…
Take a minute to check out Karen’s blog at Karen’s Card Corner!
My friend Donna sent a pretty card in pink and black!
Susan Heine sent a lovely card, too! 🙂
Kathy, from Nevada, a customer and – more importantly! – my friend! – sent this pretty floral card made with some Daisy Lane!
Faith SImpson sent this lovely bouquet!
And Barbara Simmons sent roses that will last forever!
Wow wow WOW! I am truly blessed and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends around this country! Thank you ALL so very much!
Hope I see you guys tonight! 🙂

We have reevaluated our strategy for launching Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995) after the number of difficulties demonstrators and customers experienced during the South Pacific and European launches.
First, we have decided to reduce the limit on blades from six to three. We anticipate blades to sell out quickly, but hope more demonstrators and customers will be able to order with the smaller limit.
Second, we still plan to notify demonstrators through an update with the exact date and time the blades will become orderable (which will NOT be this week, as previously indicated). For this first launch in North America, we will send an email to anyone who requested a notification about when the blades would become available. For future launches, updates will be announced to Demonstrators ahead of time.
Third, we have made several internal system adjustments to avoid the issues we faced with previous launches in the South Pacific and Europe and are hopeful those errors will not be repeated.
Finally, there are different error messages you will see if trying to add the blades to an order before they become available and after they have sold out.
- On the day of the launch, if you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before they are available, you will see this error message: “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.”
- When the blades have sold out, the message will return to the current message until the next launch: “This item has been discontinued and cannot be added to your order (126995).”
We also want to remind you we are still working on a new trimmer option and hope to have more information to share in the coming months.
A quick note from me: Stampin’ Up! did not provide a date and time when the blades will be available to order. So keep an eye on my blog and newsletter and I’ll post those details as soon as we have them! But I wanted to post this update since many of you have been asking about the Trimmer Blades.
