04.09.18_HEADER_RETIRING_LIST_US

The Retiring list has been posted. Some items sell out very quickly. In fact, I should have posted this in the morning. Don’t delay!

Click here for the Occasions Catalog Retiring List.

Click here for the Annual Catalog Retiring List.

You will see lots of Bundles on the list. Bundle prices are no longer carried over to the next catalog, so don’t get fooled. Just because a bundle is listed, it does not mean the products are retiring.

You will also see a lot of card stock, stamp pads, and ink refills on the list. Stampin’ Up! needed to update the molds they use to make the stamp cases. It was also time for a color refresh. After careful consideration they decided to make all the changes at once rather than make changes this year and then make more changes next year. I’m so glad they did! So there are some of my favorite colors retiring and I am so sad to see them go. But there are lot of even better colors that will be introduced and even some favorites from previous years returning. Yay!

I loved the way Stampin’ Up! showed the array of colors in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog on page 183. They didn’t do that this year, but here’s my version of it with the new colors.

Click here do download the full-size chart.

Again, when you see collections on the list, it may mean that just a few products in the collection are retiring.

But some of my favorite products really are retiring.

Everyone who has ordered from me in the past year will get the new 2018-2019 catalog, so now is a great time to order from me!

The new Occasions 2018 and Sale-a-Bration catalogs are now live!!! Yippee! I have posted the labels, stamp case slips, case inserts, and other organizational tools. And the Evernote notes are now in my Current Products notebook. I share that notebook. Just email me to request an invitation. If you are already sharing my notebook, just open Evernote, make sure it starts synchronizing, and those new notes should start showing up automatically. I will be moving the retiring products out of that notebook and into my Retired Products notebook soon. I share that one too, just ask.

But all those tags in Evernote may need some organizing too. They’ll show up for you listed individually and alphabetically. You can group them together in categories so they are easier for you to find. Everyone has their own way of sorting, but this is what makes sense to me. You will not have access to change the tags themselves, but you can organize them they way you want. Or drag them all into “Tags by Bev”, close the category, and you won’t have to see any of them.

Note (4/28/18) I shared the way I can organize the tags. I have since found out you may not be able to move tags around like I can. If that’s the case, I am so sorry!

When you copy notes to your own notebook, you can edit the tags all you want. I didn’t mention in the video, you can rename any tag you have created and Evernote will automatically rename them in all the notes! For instance, I could right-click on say… “treats” and rename it “Treat containers and tags” and the “treat” tag in You’re So Sweet” will automatically be changed to the new “Treat containers and tags.” Is that cool or what?

My list of tags can be found  below, but I wanted to also share some videos from Stampin” Up!

There are more videos about products from the Occasions catalog here.

So here is my list of tags. I admit as I was listing them, I realized I should reorganize them a bit better so I did. This is the way I have them now.

TH-OCC18-US TH-SAB18-1_US

I am eagerly awaiting these catalogs. The products will be available to customers starting January 3. Demonstrators have been able to pre-order the products for about a month. (If you like getting a jump on new products and if you like to save money, click here to find out how!) I have been working on my labels, case inserts, stamp case slips, and other organizational tools to share with you. I’m also ready to add the new Evernote notes to the Current Product notebook.

I order a new catalog for myself so I know when they are delivered to my customers. They are now listed as “Shipped” so I think I can post the labels, etc. I will wait until January 3rd to make the Evernote Notes available. Demonstrator support told me that the notebook is so close to posting the catalog online that it would violate the demonstrator policies.

A HUGE thank you goes to subscriber Lynette Gaines. She has caught a number of errors on previous resources I’ve made, so I asked if she might be willing to edit before I published the files. Boy, am I glad she was willing to do that! I’d made more than the usual number of errors this time. If you see any more errors, please let me know so I can fix them!

Labels

O 18 & SAB 18 Stamp Case Slips I slip under the clear outer cover to show suggested blocks, coordinating products, and the item number for both wood mount and clear mount (red rubber) sets.
O 18 & SAB 18 Large Labels These are what I use outside my bags for 12″ x 12″ paper. (Corrected 1-2-18)
O 18 DSP Sampler You can cut 2″ x 2″ pieces of Designer Series Paper to make your own sampler.
O 18 DSP Labels This format was requested by a subscriber to use as file folder tabs.
O 18 & SAB 18 Washi Labels I make these into tags on a ring with my collections of Washi Tape.
O 18 & SAB 18 Supply Labels These can be printed on Avery 5167 labels for everything else not already listed. There is a second page with just a few products.
O 18 & SAB 18 Supply Labels without dies Since I keep my Framelits and Thinlits in stamp cases, I removed those labels so they fit on one page.

Stampin’ Blends will be available for customers November 1, 2017! Demonstrators can buy them now. If you’re not a demonstrator, you could join my team and get the whole set plus a Memento ink pad now as your starter kit. Click here to find out how.

Check back here November 1st and I’ll have the product links for you.

I have the whole set of Blends and I really love them! The color selection is a perfect start. (I’m hoping we can eventually get them in all the Stampin’ Up! colors.) You can buy them as a complete set, in “Combo Packs” with both the dark and light markers, or one at a time.

Stampin’ Up! offers many styles of stamps. The stamps with outline images are very nice to color and will make you look like an artist. You can color with your Stampin’ Write Markers, with ink and an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen, or with Watercolor pencils. But I think you will love the results you will get with the new Stampin’ Blends.


Here’s the blank Blends chart.

I love Evernote and share my notebook of current Stampin’ Up! products. I have already added the notes for the new Blends markers. I have also added a new tag to the stamp sets that include stamps with line drawings. If you’re already sharing my Evernote notebook, just click on the “Line Drawing for coloring” tag and you’ll see the 143 stamp sets to try with Blends. If you aren’t sharing my Evernote Notebook of Current Products, all you have to do is ask me in an email.

I am moving from my tiny craft corner to a little bit larger “craft wall.” The room is small, but I plan to use every inch along that one wall. The room still needs to be available as a guest room with the Murphy bed and a baby room with the Pack and Play and diaper changing for babysitting our granddaughter. All the craft stuff needs to tuck away out of sight for the guests and safely locked up for the baby. And it also needs to be clear and safe for our new Guide Dog Puppy in Training to play while I craft.

There was just no room for my Color Caddy. What to do? I didn’t want to spend lots of money after splurging on the granite counter. I am so happy with what I came up with! I have a great storage solution for the price of one sheet of foam core board, some card stock, and adhesive. It even gave me a place to tuck in my Stampin’ Scrub!

You can make it for just a few stamp pads or for the whole collection like I did. I usually include links for the supplies, but you probably really do have everything you need. I used Fast Fuse to make each stamp pad box, but you could use Tear and Tape. I used Glue Dots to adhere the boxes to the foam core board, but you could use any adhesive.

Click here for the free directions including the dimensions for the Memento, Stazon, and VersaMark pads.

And don’t forget to celebrate World Card Making Day!

WCMD_Demo-Header_NA

This year the world celebrates the day on October 7, but one day wasn’t enough for us. For ten days (October 1–10), you will get 15% off Notecards & Envelopes and select stamp sets. Also, when you buy Fast Fuse Adhesive, you’ll get two refills for FREE! These items will help you and your customers celebrate the best hobby of all—cardmaking!

But wait! There’s more!

There is a sale on Designer Series Paper through the end of October!
