My roomie, Jenn, is bringing her laptop with her. So, I will try to post a few times while I am there. We will have to see how much downtime we have. Last time we went to SLC, Jenn was VERY pregnant. So, we didn't get to sightsee too much. I told her to pack her comfy shoes so we can see the sights this time!!!
Tomorrow we get to check-in and get our bags. Our bags will contain the new Fall & Winter Idea Book and Catalog!!! Yee haw!!!! Can't wait to see all the new stamp sets and accessories!!! We also get three stamp sets to use during our make-n-takes. Of course, since the catty is debuting at convention, we don't have a clue what the stamp sets look like. Ohhhhhhhh, the anticipation is driving me nuts!!!!
Until next time.....Happy Stamping everyone!!!!

I can't believe that Stampin' Up! Convention is next week!!! I've been busy making swaps, but I REALLY needed to take a break from that. If you haven't been with me for long, I'm gonna confess a secret about myself.........I really DO NOT LIKE making the same card over and over. So, needless to say, making swaps is not one of my favorite things to do. It's not as bad as ironing, but it ranks pretty close to it....LOL!!!!
So, I pushed my swap stuff aside and made this adorable card!! It uses a brand new stamp set. It's called Deer Friend, and it will be a level 2 Hostess set in the brand new catalog. It's just like Batty for You....but Christmas-themed. This card also uses two of the new In Colors: Pirouette Pink and Riding Hood Red.
Can I tell you how much I LOVE this new pink? It's truly the color of cotton candy. It's light and delicate. I've been hoping for the release of this color for years!!!!
Here is a comparison of Pirouette Pink (on the left) and Pretty and Pink (on the right). They look so pretty together as well. I will make a card for you to show you just how pretty they look together!!!
stamp sets: Deer Friend (brand new Level 2 Hostess Set), Wonderful Favorites, Classic Stars jumbo wheel
paper: Riding Hood Red, Pirouette Pink, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
ink: Riding Hood Red, Pirouette Pink, Basic Brown
accessories: Stampin' Write markers, Soft Subtle brads, Pink gingham ribbon, circle punches (1 1/4" and 1 3/8")

I will post the retired accessory list on my blog as well as send an email notice to all my newsletter subscribers as soon as I receive it from SU.
Please note that all items are on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis. Once an item is sold out, it is gone forever!!!!
If you are interested in purchasing any of the retired accessories, please send me your order ASAP. I will be asking for credit card as payment as that is the quickest payment route possible to ensure you will get all the goodies you want without them selling out.
I am heading to my Stampin' Studio now to take inventory of my favorite In Colors. I don't know if I can stamp without my River Rock (an incredible neutral), Soft Sky and Blue Bayou cardstock!!! Don't forget to order your reinkers to keep your ink pads nice and juicy in the future. Last year's reinkers are going for a ridiculous amount of money on Ebay.
I've been designing my swaps for Convention. Sorry for being MIA!!!!

I will post pics from the trip and hopefully a new project tomorrow!!!
Glad to be back home......hope you're still sticking with me after 12 days away!!!!!
Happy Stamping everyone!!

Please note that stamp sets introduced prior to this catalog will still need to be trimmed.
So how do you know if a stamp set will be die cut? Just look for the die cut icon to determine which stamp sets are die cut. Easy peasy!!!!
I will be taking pre-orders for the new catalog soon!!!! Look for an announcement in the coming weeks!!!!
