Transition to Die-Cut Stamp Sets

Transition to Die-Cut Stamp Sets with the New Catalogue 31 March 2009

We are excited to announce that with the release of the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue on 1 April, we will be transitioning to all die-cut stamp sets! We know that both demonstrators and customers have enjoyed the ease of mounting these types of sets, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer these sets to you in more than just the mini catalogues.

Please be aware that we’ve set up a process to transition from square-cut to die-cut with those sets that we are carrying over from the 2008-2009 Idea Book & Catalogue to the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue. We will continue to fill orders with the carryover square-cut sets until our inventory runs out.

During this transition period, when you enter orders for a die-cut stamp set in OEX that is a carryover set, you'll see a pop-up box notifying you that the system is automatically replacing the item codes you enter for die-cut stamp sets with item codes for square-cut stamp sets. This means as we continue to have inventory for square-cut carryover sets, you’ll receive these sets. Once our inventory runs out, you’ll receive the new die-cut sets.

What about the Costs for the New Die-Cut Sets?
Fortunately, with this transition to all die-cut sets, you will not see an increase in price for die-cut sets in the catalogue. So the price you pay for the square-cut sets is the same price you will pay for the die-cut sets.

I have decided to run a weekly class where friends, family and new customers can join me at a time that suits them to come and make 3 cards using Stampin' Up! products. These classes cost $15.00 and you get to take away your 3 cards. First class is next Wednesday (25th March 2009). If you'd like to join us please email and advise on what time suits you.

Stampin' Up!

Wow oh Wow... so my kit arrived... it was so exciting...

So now it's all now on my craft desk and I'm going to enjoy playing with all my new toys

It's on the move

So I tried my best to sort it all yesterday and made the move into the spare room... although it's very difficult to hold a confersation with my partner through the walls so I guess I will miss crafting in the lounge... but atleast I can leave things on my desk and not worry about the children losing pieces.

So here is what I've done so far thanks to a friend (YvonneB) and her help... all over the internet too, we are very techie girls and don't actually need to physically be anywhere :)

Althought what you don't see is the piles of things sitting on the bed... this is a work in progress and I will get there... I'm dreaming big :-)
