Big Announcements!

I'm so excited! The SU! convention has been going on this week ... and while I am not there, I've heard a lot of "talk" about the announcements and some of them are just fantastic! I want to give you a quick overview ... and know that you'll be hearing more over the next few weeks too. A new blog by Stampin' Up! owner, Shelli Gardner. The blog is not live yet ... currently it is password protected, but I will let you know when it is ready! Here is what Shelli has to say:

"My main objective for this blog is simple," Shelli said in the announcement. "I want people to visit my blog and have a better day. I hope to accomplish that by sharing a personal side of me that will help people feel uplifted, positive, and optimistic."
Shelli's Signature Collection: During the first general session of convention, Shelli announced the launch of Shelli's Signature Collection, a line of products that span the entire Stampin' Up! product line, including stamp sets, home d├ęcor, and accessories.

Decor Elements Phase 2: In addition to new phrases and images, phase 2 also offers new colors! Many of the new images will be available in a selection of our exclusive colors. Customers will be able to place orders for DE Phase 2 items beginning October 1st.

Country Living Kit: For the second time, Stampin' Up! will partner with Country Living magazine to offer an exclusive holiday kit. The Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit will include exclusive stamps, a combination of Designer Series paper, and coordinating accessories that will only be available by purchasing this kit. {woot!}

Big Shot Die Cut Machine: This is what really gets me going! Stampin' Up! is partnering with Ellison to offer the Big Shot and dies including ... a line of Exclusive Dies that coordinate with stamp sets! Wow! I can't wait to get my hands on a few of these dies! How about you? Here is the lovely machine:

Project ideas- this basket die is number one on my shopping list!

Felt! Die cutting felt! How adorable!!

Other items of interest:

  • Vanilla Hodgepodge!
  • Die cut Stamp sets! {first just the new sets - but by Spring all sets will be die cut}
  • Online ordering - you will be able to order directly from my Stamp With Susan site!

That's all for today!

happy stampin'
