Take a Look at the At Home with You Bundle

#20172018sucatalog

Time to check out another soon to be released item the At Home with You Bundle.  This is another what I am calling two-step framelits collection.  The bundle has a 25 piece Photopolymer Stamp Set and a 12 piece Framelits Die Set.  Oh course it is featured as a bundle which saves you 10%.

Why am I calling this a two-step framelits collection?  Well you have a framelit die that cuts the door and frame out but then you have a second step you can do to cut the door out, so a 'two-step framelits collection".  

Stampin' Up! trainer, Brandi, showcases the At Home with You Bundle from the 2017-2018 annual catalog. Open the door to your creativity with this "a-door-able" bundle, containing the At Home with You Stamp Set and coordinating At Home Framelits Dies.

 

Only three short days and you will be able to order this exclusive At Home with You Bundle.


In two short days all the retiring items will be gone.  Maybe it's time to take one last look at what is retiring so you don't miss out on anything.  Remember my Anniversary of 20 Free 6" x 6" Assorted Designer Series will also be going away on May 31.

Time To Take A Closer Look At The New Stampin' Up! Catalog

#20172018sucatalog

In just 5 more days, we will be able to start ordering out of this beautiful New 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  I have been able to order a small portion of items from this catalog, but come June 1st I can get everything I want.  Think Stampin' Up! needs to add an item number "get it all".

Thought today I would share some videos Stampin' Up! has designed to showcase some of the poplar items in this beautiful catalog.

Check Out this video on the adorable new card kit called Soft Sayings

 

It’s easy to create a stack of all-occasion cards with the all-inclusive Soft Sayings Card Kit.  Stampin' Up! trainer, Holly, gives you some tips and tricks for creating the cards that come in the kit. This card kit makes 20 cards, 2 each of 10 designs, using the included Soft Sayings Stamp Set. There is also a refill kit so you can keep on making!   The refill kit is new to this catalog and is a very nice feature.

The stamp set Soft Sayings is included with the kit which has 15 Photopolymer Stamps, plus a clear stamp block.  You will also get all the printed card bases and coordinating printed envelopes, giftable kraft box, die-cut accent, Baker's Twine, Washi Tape and Stampin Dimensionals, and Stampin Spot.

This is a perfect gift idea for the stamper in your family.  Or to stamp all the cards and give as gifts.

I can't wait to start sharing this new Card Kit.

Take A Close Look At Stampin' Up!'s New In Colors

Are you like me every year when Stampin' Up! announces the New In Colors, I think I don't like them?  But after I work with them I fall in love.  Well that is what is happening again this year.  I have had a couple months of playing with them and there are some great favorites.  So let's take a look at them compared with some of our current colors.  First my favorite Berry Burst.

#incolor #berryburst #lindabauwin

When I first saw Berry Burst I thought oh we have so many pinks already.  But look at how different they look when they are side by side.  I know Berry Burst is going to be my favorite go to New In Color.

Next let's look at Lemon Lime Twist.  Now this was my least favorite when I first looked at the New In Colors.  But if you have been following my blog, you know I am loving it will the Dapper Denim.  I have also been using it will grays and blacks and really loving that combination.  You will have to check at the bottom of this post for some cool color combinations.

#incolor #lemonlimetwist #lindabauwin

The new Powder Pink is a much needed new Pink, it reminds me of our old Pretty in Pink.  It is just a soft baby pink.

#incolor #powderpink #lindabauwin

Fresh Fig gives us another purple shade, which we were lacking in the purple for a couple years.  But Fresh Fig is a great addition.

#incolor #freshfig #lindabauwin

Last let's look at Tranquil Tide with some of the other green shades.

#incolor #tranquiltide #lindabauwin

Once again I thought Tranquil Tide was so close to other colors we already had, but when you take a closer look there is a lot of difference.

I am so excited I have a TEAM Challenge going on, for those demonstrators in my Stamp Family.  They are to use the New In Colors.  Can't wait to show you what they have coming up with.  Some have already come in and all I can say is stunning.  So stay tune.

Take a look at this great In Color Combination Chart.

I Hope You Will Celebrate With Me

Hard to believe BUT . . .

#20thanniversary #lindabauwin
It is 2o years this May, May 5th to be exact, that I made a decision that changed the course of my life so differently. That decision was to sign up as a demonstrator.  

Because of that decision Jay & I were able to travel to many places that we only could dream about, something I am so grateful for.  I have made friends from all over the world.  And I came to realize I could set any goal I wanted, and could achieve it just by sharing what I love stamping.

So it's time to celebrate!!!  And that we will do the whole month of May.  great News Stampin' Up! will help with that celebration.  They have two special bundles you can order on Monday.  So you want to come back on Monday to see what I am offering during this month of Celebration and the new bundles.

First I wanted to share what was going on in my life in 1997 when I signed up.

  • Jay and I owned a hardware store that I worked in 60 hours a week
  • I knew lots about plumbing, electrical and home repair, nothing about stamping
  • I didn't like direct sales parties
  • Didn't know much about computers
  • Didn't know what a cellphone, blog, YouTube or Facebook was
  • And definitely didn't like to talk in front of people

That all changed when I picked up a business card in a craft store.  What was this stamping all about?  What I had to buy a catalog?  Or have a home party to see what it was about?  No not me?  

Months past before I finally agreed to a home party, and well can we say the rest is history.  My dear friend and neighbor Tracy Spangler said "I will help you we can buy a $100 a month" (the minimum at that time).  So told Jay I wanted to try it for 3 months to get my stuff at a discount.

Well it wasn't long before I wanted more and didn't want to spend it out of our family budget.  So Hardware Lady by Day, Stamp Lady by Night.  I truly loved what I was doing.

I was going out and having "women" talk, instead of how to fix a toilet or replace a light switch.  It brought excitement as I reached for goals.

And the real joy was when Jay decided to follow the stamping dream with me.  Will never forget when he said "You have followed my dream (the hardware store) for 24 years now it is time for me to follow your dream".  Follow he did in fact he loved stamping as much as I did, as he followed me to conventions, leaderships, and incentive trips.

Has the last 20 years been an easy road?  No

Have I wanted to quit at times?  Of Course

Would I change what I do?  No

Since Jays' passing 20 months ago,  Stampin' Up! has filled an even bigger void that I am so grateful for.  I could never imagine getting through the difficult months lately with out all the friends I have made from being a demonstrator.

I am so grateful for the members of my Stamp Family, other demonstrators, and of course all my customers who make each day such a blessing.  

So check back on Monday as we start our month of celebration.
