Shel's Stampin' News- May 2012

Shel’s Stampin’ News                                                                                                May 2012

Boy oh boy, time seems to be zooming along!  ….seems like just yesterday I was compiling April’s newsletter!  A lot is going on right now, both with Stampin’ Up! and myself. 

Personally, I am heavy into spring cleaning ( arrgh!), so what with working full time and trying to get my spring cleaning done bit by bit, and my classes, time is zooming along.  This past weekend I got all my cupboards cleaned out and wiped down, and purged a bunch of stuff that was just sitting there. Awful chore, but feel much better now that it is done! Now I am working on windows ( arrgh!) and carpet cleaning.

On a happier note,  I also got some wonderful new drawers in my craft room for storage.  I saw these drawers and sliders at a yard sale across the street, and I offered them 15 bucks for five drawers (they wanted 5 bucks a drawer).  Well being as it was 4:35 pm and there sale was over at 5 they accepted my offer and my wonderful hubby made a cabinet for them to go into and now I have beautiful storage under my work table!  Yeah!!  
Gotta love storage!!

Ok, enough of my babbling, on to Stampin’ Up matters!   Here we go:

 Retired Stamp List- came out April 10th.  There are a HUGE number of stamps that are retiring.  These are gone as of May 31- so be sure to check the list and see if the sets you like are on it.  I have attached the list to this email for your review.

 Order Your New Catalog Now- I am now taking orders for the new catalog.  Regular price is $11.99, but if you preorder it before May 7 the cost is only $5.00

Shoebox Swap-
                              THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE!

This is a NO COST event- and a TON of fun!
 You get to enjoy a couple of hours with the girls and go home with a bunch of different cards for your stash!

Here’s how it works:

1. You contact me and let me know you are going to join the swap. I will let you know how many people are going to be participating in the swap. All I need to know is which stamp set you will be using ( as we don’t want to duplicated) (Note that if you do not have Stampin’ Up! product but still wish to participate in the swap, it can be any brand of products)

2. You design a simple card (any occasion) that can be put together in 10-15 minutes from start to finish. All items needed for the card must fit inside the box. ( If your card design requires embossing with the Big Shot, you will have to pre-emboss it, as everything needed for the card must fit inside the shoebox)

3. You get a shoe box and put all the ingredients to make the card (stamp, ink, block, punch, precut cardstock, any tools, bling, ribbon etc) inside the box. I suggest that each packet of cardstock needed for one person be put inside a ziplock to contain the pieces. Envelopes are NOT required.

4. On the day of the swap you bring your box and the box gets handed around to each participant. They follow your sample and make one of the cards you designed. When they are done they put all the supplies back in the box and hand the box to the next person.

5. This is a fun social time with the girls, you get to create cards and add to your stash of cards, and show others your card design, while making their designs.

6. The number of cards you end up with depends on the number of participants. If there are only a few participants we may want to each do two shoeboxes…but we can discuss that later once we see who is interested..

7. As always, I will have tea (reg and decaf), coffee, water for all participants.

Let me know if you want to participate and join the fun…this event will be held on Saturday May 12th at my place- 10 am

Seating is limited so this will be on a first come first serve basis. If I get a lot of interest I will host a second swap to accommodate.
