Rare Sale on Retiring Stamps & Free Shipping on orders over $70!!!

Hi Stampin' Friends,

Stampin' Up! offers hundreds of beautiful stamp images in each catalog release. The release of a new catalog is often a highly anticipated event for stamping enthusiasts! So, in order to make room for new and exciting stamp images, Stampin Up! selects certain stamp sets to "retire" or discontinue. This year, Stampin' Up! is offering an unheard of sale on retiring stamps (they usually don't discount the retiring stamps) - 10% off. To sweeten the deal, the are also offering FREE SHIPPING on orders over $70. So now is the time to take advantage of this unusual opportunity to get your favorite stamps before they become a sweet memory. This offer is good through December 23, 2008. Please visit my website for the lists!

UPDATED December 3, 2008: Here are some project sample photos that I promised.

Give handmade love this year! Join us on December 6, 2008, from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm for a Santa's Workshop gift-project buffet. This is an open house-style stamp camp. You can show up whenever you have time, but please no later than 2:00 pm so that you will have time to complete your selected projects. Class fee will be $10.00. Projects will include:

Tile Coasters (Set of four -- here is a simple sample) $7.00 / Two sets for $10.
Approximate time to complete four tiles 45 mins - 1 hour.







Magnetic Calendars $2.50 each or 3 for $6.00
Approximate time to complete three calendars - 30-45 mins.







Ribbon/Chipboard Bookmark ($2.50 each) & Jumbo Paperclip Bookmarks ($1.50 each)
Approximate time to complete 3 bookmarks 30-45 mins.









Nugget Tin - 5 Covered nuggets in a beautiful hinged Altoid-sized tin (no window) $3.50.
Approximate time to complete one nugget tin: 30 -45 mins. (w/o eating any nuggets :-) )

I want to give a big "Thank You" shout-out to Julie Case for granting me permission to use her photo. The cool window tins are in transit and wanted to give you all an idea of what to expect. I like the simple elegance of her sample and plan to CASE (copy and share everything) her ideas. The actual Designer Series Paper may vary, but no matter which one, the nugget tins will be cute (or handsome) and perfect for a quick and easy gift!

Thank You/Greeting Card set (1 set of 6 cards) $8.00
