Celebrate Today!

Announcements/ Papercrafting/ Product Information

Hello stampers and thanks for popping in to celebrate today! I wanted to give you a sneak peek to show you some of the new products in the Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 annual catalog.

                                     side note: You can still order most of the products that will be retiring on May 31; a few have been discontinued because SU has run out of these products). If you live local to me North Dallas Area, I'm having my annual BOGO where I sell all of my retiring products. Would love to have you pop by and perhaps pick up an item that you missed out on ordering.

My supply of new catalogs has arrived (my UPS guy probably was happy the 100 degree weather hasn't hit here yet) and many of my customers have already come by to pick theirs up…have you gotten a copy yet? If you don't already have a demonstrator or are my customer and haven't yet received one, message me an we'll take care of that right away!
