Mini-Spring Catalogue Launch

Hi Stampers,

Well, with the Olympic Games over & glued to the TV for the past 2 weeks, we will have more time for our stamping.

The Launch Saturday & Sunday was a huge success with everyone having fun.

We made a 3x3” box & 3 square cards to put in the box, using the “Tart & Tangy” Stamp Set - Page 10 - $21.95 & of course, the matching “Summer Picnic” Designer Papers - Page 12 - $11.95,to go with this stamp set..... This set is so fresh & versatile that you can just keep on stamping and stamping.

Don't forget the special this month with the postage & time is nearly running out!

We will be having another weekend put aside next month for those that couldn’t make it, and we will be using a different set of stamps, papers and not to mention a different project.

The box & cards will appear on the blog in the next couple of days, along with a couple of other cards that we have made using the above stamp set & papers.

This min-catalogue is proving to be such a hit that I have had to order more catalogues, so if you don’t have your copy, just email me and I will be more than happy to post it to you.

Until tomorrow when I post the project, happy stampin!

Hope you like it!

Challenge # 1

Hi All,

Well, I have just complete my first challenge which has been issued to my stamping group I am in.... I thought I would give it a go & see what I could come up.... It is not the stamp set I wanted to use, but never mind, when I do find that set, I will have another go at it, but thought you could check the challenge out & maybe have a go yourselves.

The only stipulation is that you must stick to the colours & use Stampin' up! products!

Don't forget to email me your card so that I am able to post in on the blog so others can view your fanastic work... It is all good fun!

Catalogue Corrections

It has been noted there are a few minor errors in the 2008-09 Idea Book and Catalogue.

Grab a Bargain!
There are 2 price misprints, however Stampin' Up! will honour the printed price for this Catalogue year!

Ø Page 119 - Wonderful Favourites $39.95 (should be $77.95)
Ø Pages 134-136 - Designer Series Papers $11.95 (should be $16.95) That's only $1.00 per sheet for high quality double-sided papers!

Other Corrections
Ø Page 132 - Five-in-One Card Cover: The image shown is incorrect.
Ø Page 132 - C6 envelopes: these items include 40 envelopes per package, not 20 as pictured.
