Is summer finally here? Where did May go? Just sending a quick blog to keep you updated on the buffet and wondering what you think of the new catalog. Did you get yours??? Leave a message if you want one.
CLASSIC GARAGE IS BACK
with a biker addition from ONE WILD RIDE... both are in the new 2019-2020 catalog. This card will be on the buffet along with the others from the last class which you can mix and match. However this card has a limited number because of the limited DSP in the packet. BE SURE TO let me know you want to make this card in the COMMENT section so I can save one for you. Otherwise, there will be lots of DSP from which to choose. I love the set of gears…great Father’s, brothers, dad’s “anything! Be sure to order the bundle NOW for ALL GEARED UP and save 10%.
MEDITERRANEAN MOMENTS and BEAUTIFUL YOU – all paired up thanks to Dawn Baier’s creativity at the last buffet. Work on either one…and do a little paper piecing for added fun.
HURRY: Don’t miss this opportunity to save on products….check out this link and get your favorites before they run out. I closed the May HOST code so that the orders could be placed and some items were already sold out before I could get them into the computer…so HURRY!! Be sure to use the new host code when you order.
NEW HOST CODE TODAY: NW99NJBB
GRADUATION CARDS UPDATE
I am not planning on any graduation cards for the buffet June 11th…oh look who graduated! Well there may be some parties that call for gift cards. Reminder: Menomonie graduation this weekend. If you are still in need please leave a comment here or on facebook and I will get back to you.
Time to publish this before everything runs out on the BIG SALE. Great deals on DSP and dies….be sure to take a look! Let me know if I can help.
REMEMBER TO SIGN UP FOR NEXT BUFFET on JUNE 11th NOW! They are revamping the website so if you have trouble just leave a comment or send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a peek at this gorgeous DSP from the 2019-2020 annual catalog – looks like a piece of canvas from Monet. I thought the card designed by Connie Rae was perfect for the next buffet…what do you think?? So simple yet so elegant…just a piece of DSP with a gold embossed sentiment. Please leave a comment…let me know if you are interested in working with this on TUESDAY June 11th…reminder to register.
STAMPIN’ TRIMMER CUTTING BLADES
IMPORTANT INFORMATION (Next available May 23rd)
As a follow-up to our May 14 current update, we want to provide some additional information regarding the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades situation.
Because of the unique circumstances around the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades created by the Trimmer line discontinuation, we have created a process exception requiring a significant amount of manual work in our systems. We have no plans to do this for any other products.
One of the challenges we faced was the timing of our notification system. Email notifications about products coming back into stock were only sent once per day. For an in-demand item like the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades, this notification could easily be sent after the item had been seen in the online store and sold out in a matter of hours. Our IT group has adjusted the notification system to send these emails hourly; moving forward, we anticipate this will help with notifications about other products.
As part of the workaround for this situation, and to minimize confusion, we have turned off the automated email notification for the blades. You and your customers will no longer be able to request an email when the blades are back in stock. We will notify you through a current update in advance, with the exact date and time Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades will become available for purchase again.
Because we want to honor customer requests for notification, we will send a one-time email to the email addresses submitted before this functionality was shut off, announcing the date and time of the next available product. This email will be sent to both customers and demonstrators on the list at the same time we post the current update for demonstrators with the same information. This will be the only time customers will be notified by Stampin’ Up! about the blades, due to the notification shut off. Moving forward, we ask that you share the date and time with your customers once we have shared it with you.
If you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before the go live time, you will see an error that says, “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.” This is tied to the system workaround to control the exact date and time of the product becoming available after receiving inventory in our distribution centers.
We recognize that this product line transition is less than ideal for you. We want to reiterate that we are committed to providing you with cutting blades until September 2019, and that we are committed to providing you with a better paper trimmer product. We appreciate your partnership and patience in this endeavor.

Good things come to those who wait. (We really had no choice but to wait here in Wisconsin, did we?) Ironically, this sentiment could be applied to other areas in our life right now too… I’ve heard it said, “God is never late, but He’s rarely early.” His timing is perfect, we remind ourselves. And the lilacs are right on time…they are bursting open all over this town. The sight and scent of lilacs remind me that summer is on its way…
I am excited about the card I found to CASE from the Artisan group at Stampin’Up. It is perfect for making a symmetrical design using the new STAMPARATUS tool which will be available for purchase on June 1st. Wanna learn how to do it? check my Facebook page for the video or come to the next Buffet Class on June 12th…sign up NOW so I’m ready for you!
SUPPLIES FOR LILAC CARD:(Some supplies and tools are not listed as they are in the new catalog which will not be available until June 1st! ) I have also listed the bundles for this card that are available NOW and until May 31st . find the supplies on page 177 and check out the bundles on my Stampin Up website page.
What a great technique we learned at the last buffet – no two are alike! Here is one for a masculine card and perfect for those Rustic Road Travelers on a bike! Use it for birthdays, Father’s Day and more. Of course, I love the vintage look of crumb cake and have played with several designs to use at the next buffet. We will also use the burlap background stamp and/or some burlap cardstock hidden away in my paper stash! Remember to sign up and come get your new catalog!
Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday and the smell of the lilacs!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stay InKy!
Just a quick hello to all my Blog followers AND I do apologize if you get this message more than once but I feel committed to this request. As we get to more interesting ages, milestones in life become more important and need to be recognized. Please read the post below and make a card for this dear lady turning 90 on Tuesday…it would make her day to be flooded with cards.
I encourage you to send the LOVE this week or even next and then send me a copy of your card creation. Afterall, this months’ Stampin’ Up Theme is “Share what we do!” (send LOVE in the mail!) This is the message I received from Pastor Dana Erbeck.
“This lady doesn’t know it but her daughter Barbara Palmer is requesting a CARD SHOWER for her Moms 90th birthday on May 15. Even if you have never met her but know me & trust me, this lady is a gem– please send her a card. If you are her friend from past to present please send a card too. We are hoping she will get at least 90 cards! Thanks in advance. Her address is:
Betty Pittman, 717 Syme Ave., Glenwood City, WI 54013.
THE CHALLENGE FOR YOU!
Let’s turn this into something special for you, too. If you submit a picture of your card to me by email, snail mail, PM, or some means of which I am unaware, I will have a prize for the winner!!! Here is mine with a slot inside to tuck in a bookmark or a little something special.
Thanks for going out of your way to make Betty Pittman feel the LOVE!
Be blessed for your good works! It’s what we do for OTHERS that counts.
Another wonderful time stamping together at the monthly buffet. We had visitors from Canada last night who enjoyed making the March Anniversary Paper Pumpkin kit.

I had a paper pumpkin date with Meera last week and at the age of 8 she was able to read the directions, follow the instructions on the utube channel and make 4 teacher appreciation cards with Sara’s special box from last year. So Meera passed the test and I signed her up to receive Paper Pumpkin. Not only to have fun making the projects but it is a great reinforcer for reading, following directions, staying on task, learning how to access instructions on line and more. If yo have children or grand children who love art, this is a great gift – and it’s 50% off for the next 2 months – must order by May 10th!!
