Welcome to Day 2 of my Sneak Peek Week for the 2010 Summer Mini! Today’s project is a fun 3D project and is also going to be my latest 3D Challenge for my fellow demonstrators over at Stampin’ Connection. I will be challenging them to create and decorate a small box to fit some 3×3 mini note cards. Here is the box I created using quite a few products from the Summer Mini: And of course, I had to create some cute coordinating mini cards to go inside the box, too! Scraps of Advice: These monogram minis bring together FOUR amazing new products from Stampin’ Up!’s Summer Mini: Rough Type stamp set, Mini Vintage Tags, Mostly Vintage Decor Stencil, and some Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. If you love the vintage look, you will love the new Summer Mini! They have so many fabulous new items to help you create...

Summer Mini 2010 Sneak Peek Week

The 2010 Summer Mini Catalog will go live on May 1st, less than a month away! And as a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator, I have the fabulous benefit of getting to see the Summer Mini Catalog early and preordering some of those new products! But I would NEVER keep all these fun new goodies to myself! So I hold these special Sneak Peek Weeks for you, my loyal readers, to give you the opportunity to see a few of the latest and greatest items from Stampin’ Up! before they are available. I hope you get excited about the new items coming as I share with you a week’s worth of products using my fun new Summer Mini products! To kick off this sneak peek week, let’s say a big congrats to this year’s graduates! Scraps of Advice: Black and gold are NOT the only colors for graduations! Incorporate your...

A Clear(ance) Advantage!

So I was killing time surfing the Stampin’ Up! website and decided to see what was still available in the Clearance Rack. And I noticed these two items for sale: Corduroy Buttons in both Baja Breeze and Pacific Point! So why is this a big deal? Because Baja Breeze and Pacific Point are two of the past In Colors that are being brought back as part of Stampin’ Up!’s Color Renovation! This means that now is the perfect time to stock up on these fabulous embellishments at 60% off of their original catalog price! These sets of 24 buttons were originally priced at $9.95, but right now they are available for only $3.99! I have no clue if Stampin’ Up! will be re-releasing this specific product later on, but even if corduroy buttons in these colors aren’t made available again in the next Idea Book & Catalog, you will...

Well, a simple explanation is that Stampin’ Up! wants to stay up to date with the latest trends in color and design. Color plays such a HUGE role in card-making...
