Watercolor Pencils – going, going…

We received a News flash from Stampin’Up! today regarding the sales of the new Watercolor Pencils – this is important if you have been on the fence regarding the Watercolor Pencils!

Sales for the Watercolor Pencils have exceeded Stampin’Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be some time before this item is back in stock.

141709: Watercolor Pencils

This product will remain available until Thursday, January 26 at 12:00 PM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status. (After that time, demonstrators, like me, will have to watch inventory status like we did for the Stitched Framelits).

SO order them NOW, TODAY, ASAP, if you have been thinking about the Watercolor Pencils. If you watched my video the other night on my Facebook business page they are so versatile and I just love using them.
Order Today: 141709: Watercolor Pencils

Click on the Shop 24×7 link on this page and don’t forget to place an order of $50 or more to receive a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog such as the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I’ll be sending a newsletter tonight with samples of different techniques using the Watercolor Pencils on the Inside the Lines DSP.

High Tide and Cools Treats – New Occasions Catalog

Have you created your wish list from the new catalog yet?

If you weren’t able to join me on the Virtual Party on Weds night launching the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration, I wanted to share a couple of card ideas I posted during the party.

I am anxious to see your samples and ideas, my Facebook page is a great place to share your ideas and see those of others. Please feel free to post and share there.

Remember CASE – copy and share everything! Even top demonstrators admit they didn’t start stamping and amazing cards ideas just came to them right away. Most of us see an idea on other sites, blog hops, card challenges and them tweak to make it our own. So don’t be shy to post!

I have other items I haven’t created with yet and another order coming on Weds of next week, so I’ll be sharing more ideas as we continue to launch the new catalog. I have also started my list for the next order! There are so many great items to purchase and of course, Sale-a-bration (SAB) free items is a great time to place your orders. For every $50 from the annual or new Occasions catalog, you can select a free item from the SAB catalog.

On this last image of the High Tide stamp set,  I shared with the group during the Facebook virtual party that I used the new watercolor pencils to add some color and contrast to the sea. I love the new watercolor pencils and have been experimenting more and more with them. Maybe we should do a video?

If you don’t have a catalog, please let me know and I would love to send one to you. If you were forwarded this post, please sign up to receive future updates and newsletters. Of course if you are ready to shop, just click on the Shop 24×7 link above.

Many blessings, Deena

Welcome to my new website and blog!

Welcome to my new website and blog!

I can’t think of a better time to introduce my new website and blog than the beginning of the Stampin’Up! new year (October each year) and the 2016 Holiday Season. I am very excited to have this method of communicating and sharing ideas about stamping and be inspired to create and share with others. When my retail business was open in the 1990’s, I loved updating and sharing on my website and in my newsletter. I look forward to doing the same with you and my Stampin’Up! business.

I just attended OnStage in Madison WI last weekend and received the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs. We were shown great ways to use the new stamp sets and of course we played with them. Some are posted on the Gallery tab on this site. I am very excited about the new stamps you will have the chance to order in January.  For those of you that have ordered from me since January or are followers on my Facebook business page, you will receive the new Occasions catalog next month.

I will continue to post on my Facebook business page but I know some of you prefer newsletters or emails, so this new format will let me communicate more effectively than the email tool I was previously using.

But don’t forget, there is still time to order from the 2016 Holiday Catalog and plenty of 2016 left to use those stamps too. Stay tuned for more card ideas that I will be sharing.

Be grateful and enjoy today! Deena
