This video is a couple of years old now. I do still share my notebook and I keep it updated with current products. Obviously some of the products in the notebook in the video have changed. When products retire I move them to the Retired Products notebook.

A couple of things that have changed. I share the notebook, so you don’t have to use Export or Import. The new products will just synchronize to your computer when I add them. I do definitely recommend that you create your own notebook and copy notes you want into your notebook. Then you can edit them all you want. I also do not tag my notes “I own” anymore. I follow my own advice and have another notebook for just the products I own. I also have the very select few retired products I’ve kept in that notebook.

If you want to share my notebook, just email me and ask!

I love being a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!  We get an early peek at the catalog and try some of the new products.  It was exciting to see them in the catalog.  It was even better seeing them in person and feeling the soft lace and smooth papers.  I can’t wait to start making cards and other projects with them!  You can still join my team and get your early products.  And in any case, June 2nd when the catalog goes live is in just a couple of weeks.

Best BirthdayA quick card with an old-time feel using chalkboard card stock and chalk ink.

I designed and demonstrated this card before the Retiring Products list was published.  I was so sad to see many of the products from this card on the list.  Get them now if they aren’t gone already.  Chalk Lines, Perfect Pennants, and the Crushed Curry card stock will be around still.  Phew!
