Eastern Palace Sneak Peek – Order It May 1!

Announcements/ Mojo Monday/ Online Stamp Club

Eastern Palace Sneak Peek – Order It May 1!

Today’s card is a sneak peek of the Eastern Palace product suite from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog which goes “live” on June 1.

This suite of products is so elegant yet versatile! My card features two of the new 2017-2019 In Color Collection: Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig. Notice the gold circles? They look embossed don't they? Guess What! They are…stickers! I've already used almost all the ones I ordered in my demo pre-order.

Speaking of pre-order, Stampin' Up! is offering YOU the opportunity to pre-order products from this suite starting on May 1! There will be two bundles, a “starter” bundle which would be great for a beginning crafter and the “premier bundle” which is perfect for a more experienced crafter OR a beginner who'd like to jump in with both feet!

Both of the bundles will be loaded with products; here is a flyer that will show you everything that comes in both bundles!


In case you don't know, I offer an online stamp club each month and May's club will feature cards from these bundles. I've been doing my online club for a couple of years now and this online club option gives out of town customers a way to stamp with me and get two free card kits full of consumable products each month! If you'd like to get in on the fun starting in May, just click here and put your name and email in the big coral circle at the top…you'll also get a cool free gift and a series of short video tutorials just for subscribing to my newsletter.

Don't forget to set a calendar reminder so you'll be ready to order your Eastern Palace bundles at my online store on May 1.

I hope you enjoyed my Eastern Palace Sneak Peek. Have a great week and I'll see you soon!

p.s. I had some fun samples on the blog last week; if you missed them, click here.

Do you see the “sneak peek” on this card? It's the strip of glimmer paper down the center. A 6″ x 6″ pad of assorted Glimmer Paper is coming as a FREE NEW Sale-A-Bration choice later this month…woo hoo!
