NEW crafting products for you....

Page from the pamphlet

You know you need this pack of sparkly paper.  Honestly, it is like being in the middle of the Milky Way on a very dark night!  The pack is one of three NEW SALE-A-BRATION products that will be available to all of us on Tuesday this week (and you know I will be placing an order that day ~ expedited ~ so let me know if you want to add something).  As part of SAB, any purchase of $50 earns us this product ~ FREE.  As a Demonstrator I was able to order one pack EARLY (a demo perk) and I have been using it with my stamp clubs all week.  Yesterday I created this card ~ what do you think?

Friend card 2

The medallion in the center of the sparkly circle is another SAB NEW product ~ MAKE A MEDALLION photopolymer stamp set.  One more month of SAB ~ it would be so nice if it just continued...........

Watercolor Pencils Update

As many of you may be aware, we are experiencing an extremely high demand for our Watercolor Pencils (item 141709). If sales maintain their current levels, inventory in all markets will sell out within 2–3 weeks; if demand increases, our supply will deplete sooner.

Though we felt we had ordered more than enough units, the three-month supply of this product sold out within two months. We ordered two more shipments in response to high demand, yet sales continued to outpace projections while production slowed due to the Chinese New Year holiday; therefore, it will be necessary for us to place this item in not-orderable status as soon as our current inventory is depleted for each market.

Our next shipment will leave the factory in mid-April. In order to get this product into the hands of our demonstrators and customers as quickly as possible, we will air freight it to our various markets so that it arrives by the end of April.

We hope that by communicating this situation to you now, you will have plenty of time to prepare for this item’s interruption in availability. Please note that when you enter this product’s item number in OEX on a customer, demonstrator, or workshop order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when it is back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when its status changes and it is again available to purchase.

To die for.................

Birthday Box

Here you can see another one of the small square dies that comes with the bundle, WINDOW SHOPPING.  This candle die and the one with the heart design both need to be treated a little differently because of their obvious orientation (you don't want your candles upside down, do you?).  Click on this link to see a video about this process.

Three boxes three designs

Here are the three designs included in with the dies.

Box as luminary

Such a pretty way to use the pretty little boxes, don't you think?  Check this bundle out on page 43 in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions catalog, the clear mount bundle is $50.25 ~ and you can choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product of your choice!  Let me know what you think!  SE

Window Shopping?

There is a pretty stamp set, Window Shopping, in the Occasions Catalog and it is bundled with a set of dies but I think the picture is misleading so I wanted to tell you a little more about it.  Look on page 43.  The stamp set and the bundle are at the top of the page and at the bottom you will see some projects created with the bundle.  What I think is misleading is the actual picture of the dies which are positioned to get all of them in the picture at the same time.  However, the main frame is 'filled in' with dies that are used separately.  There are actually 9 dies in the picture.


All the dies can be used separately.  For instance, the large intricate one in the center creates this design.  I cut the design in a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White, sponged color on the base card and layered the design  over the base card using Dimensionals.

Card w sponging

To make the pretty boxes only the frame is used, cut out twice and glued together.  The tab margins are small but the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) works very well to hold the box together.  In the boxes, below, I lined the lid with one of the NEW SALE-A-BRATION products ~ 6" x 6" GLIMMER PAPER ASSORTMENT PACK.  The fabulously sparkly paper comes in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum ~ all available next week.

Boxes w glimmer paper

So sorry that the sparkle isn't evident in the picture.  I will give you a little more information about the boxes tomorrow and try to find a better picture of the glimmer paper ~ really, you are going to love it!  Let me know what you think about Window Shopping!  Susan Elise
