Happy Easter!

He is risen indeed!  May that truth give you cause for another joyous Easter celebration!

What better use of the Sunburst Thinlit than showing the resurrection of our Savior Jesus, God’s Son, who burst forth from the grave conquering death after becoming the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.  Hallelujah!

The Sunburst Thinlit retires at the end of May, as does the Easter Message stamp set used here, (pg. 19 of the Occasions Catalog).  If you would like next year’s Easter cards all designed and ready to mail, order the products before they expire, and then on those dreary January or February days you can be proactive and get all your Easter cards made.  (You know I am talking to myself more than to you.)

There now, didn’t I make that easy??  I know, you are wishing for this a month ago but time flies and next Easter is only 360 days away!

Here is the front using copper embossing powder for the greeting instead of white.

Use the hostess code ZEAR3PSB if your order is under $150 so our monthly hostess, Sharon, gets credit for the order.  She is hoping to earn enough to get a Big Shot!

Retiring List is out!

It is that time of year again when the new catalog is close to publication and the retiring items are posted for us to snatch up before they are gone forever.  They are good while supplies last so check out your wish list and place an order soon!  Our hostess for the month is Sharon Fincham and she would love to have you join her for a Stampin’ Up! party on April 22 from 12:30 – 3:30.  Contact me by email or text if you would like to attend.  If you can’t attend but would like to help her earn hostess dollars, place an online order and use the hostess code:  ZEAR3PSB   Those who can’t go to the party but place an online order will receive a little gift from me!

*The bundles always expire at the end of a catalog but not necessarily the stamp sets; you will order each individually without the 10% discount.

Some products are being reconfigured so they are shown as retiring but will be back with a new look -the Pearl Basic Jewels and Rhinestones are examples- and look at those sale prices – $3.50 for pearls and $2.50 for rhinestones!  They will be back but they will be mounted individually so you don’t have to cut the glue between them.  Nice!  (However, I can keep cutting at the retired price!)  The adhesive remover is going away and there is not a symbol on the list that shows it is being reconfigured so I suggest getting one or more of those.  The Big Shot die brush is coming back with better construction so don’t panic on that one.  Staz On ink, refill and the Staz On cleaner are going away as well as Heat and Stick powder so you may want to get a supply of those.   Ribbons and bakers twine will come back in different colors but get the colors you like now before they are gone.  I thought I might cry when I saw the Organza Ribbon being discontinued, it is my very favorite and can be colored to match all our inks.  Oh sigh…..goodbye beautiful ribbon!

The new catalog will be out June 1 but wouldn’t you love to see it now??  Join my team and you will be able to view the catalog and place preorders on select products in May!  Plus receive 20%-25% off everything you buy and earn other incentives, like the upcoming trip to Alaska.  Next year is Stampin’ Up! ‘s  30 year celebration in Orlando, FL,  and there are local conventions for demonstrators which are so much fun!  Through May 31 you even get a free Paper Pumpkin with the $99 starter kit!
