Introducing The 2017/2018 In Colors

Every year Stampin’ Up! adds five new colors to their Annual Catalog that will be available for two years.  They are called In Colors.  This year the In Colors are gorgeous.  Everyone who saw them in person loved them.  I thought I would give you a sneak peek into seeing them before the catalog is available and show you a comparison with our present colors.

Now I realize that not everyone is going to love all the colors that you see here but believe me.  You will love them in person.  Each one is unique and when you start putting them with some of the other colors, you will see how well they go together.  Just wait until you see Lemon Lime Twist with Night of Navy, Basic Black or Basic Gray.  It will pop and you will love it.

These new colors will be available on June 1st when the new catalog goes live.

OnStage Local & The Retirement List

This past weekend I went to attend a Stampin’ Up! event called OnStage Local.  Every November and April they put on a Live OnStage event somewhere in the world.  This time the live event was in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  Whenever the event is not live in your country, they put on a few local events.  This time the closest event was in Toronto, Canada which is only about 4 hours from me.  Char, one of my downline and I attended together.

We had a blast.  There were probably around 600 Demonstrators there.  They had stamping presentations and announcements.  We won a few few stamp sets and products but even better than that, we received a copy of the new 2017/2018 Annual Catalog.  All I can say is wow!  You are going to love this new catalog!  I think it is one of the best catalogs yet.  There are tons of new stamp sets with matching Framelits or Thinlits.  There are new punches, tons of beautiful Designer Series Papers and of course, the new InColors.

One of the “rules” we have to obey is we can’t show you any pictures that have new products in them or give you information about the new catalog.  It is so hard to keep things a secret but Stampin’ Up! wants everyone to be surprised.  Don’t worry though.  You’ll find out soon!

Of course, with the good news, there can often be bad news.  The bad news is all the retiring items.  I am always so happy when I get the new catalog but sad about the items that will not be available any longer.  Below is the list of items that will be retiring.  There are some great deals!  If you really want something on the list, don’t wait to purchase it because once it is gone, it will be gone for good.

Lift Me Up

Lift Me Up, Up & Away Thinlits, Stampin Up,

This is the second card we made at our monthly Stamp Club meeting. It uses a stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalog called Lift Me Up!.

Some of the dies can be used with the largest Thinlit as a background to give it different colors. You can see a card I made using these dies HERE.

The Designer Series Paper we used for this card is in the 2017 Sale-a-bration Catalog. It is called Carried Away and you can get it for free with a qualifying order. Just purchase the Lift Me Up Bundle in Wood Mount or in Clear Mount along with an ink pad or something else for $5 and you can get this awesome paper for free!

A Pop Up Twist Valentine

                 ❤️❤️❤️  Happy Valentine’s Day!  ❤️❤️❤️

Sealed With Love, Pop Up Twist, Stampin Up,

I know this card looks like a simple Valentine.  It is even simpler than I usually do but look what happens when you open it.


It is called a Pop Up Panel Card.  Isn’t it cute?  I did not design this card myself.  There are a ton of different versions of it on Pinterest but I obtained the directions from Dawn Griffith, a fellow demonstrator.  I don’t know who came up with it first but she does an awesome video showing how to make it in the video below.

I used a new stamp set called Sealed With Love that is in the Occasions Catalog to make this card.  I do have to admit, that I did use retired Designer Series Paper but you can use any DSP you have on hand to make this.
