Retiring Products List is Here!

I attended Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event this weekend, where I got a copy of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Believe me when I say you’ll be amazed when you see it! There’s some really exciting stuff going on that I can’t tell you about yet (I’m about to bust!) With every new catalog, we get to say hello to some great new products, and we have to say goodbye to some old friends. The Retiring Products are available while supplies last, so get what you want off this list before it’s sells out. CLICK HERE to shop the retiring products. Or check out the retiring lists below. For each catalog (Occasions and Annual) there are two files; a pdf and a spreadsheet. Download them to help you decide what you have to have before it’s gone.

The new catalog is live! With something Spooky!

Today the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live! I am so excited about this new catalog! There are some amazing new items, and I love how so many of them work together. For example, the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies work with the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set (available together in a bundle to save you 10%) as well as the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (see the pumpkins in the lower left corner of the DSP pictured below.) The 4 pumpkin framelits in the set cut out the pumpkins in the paper! And the Cat Punch works with the Spooky Cat stamp set (also bundled) as well as the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (see the cats second from the upper left corner of the DSP pictured below.)

2017 Holiday Catalog Launch Party

Yesterday, I hosted an Open House style Launch Party highlighting products from the new Holiday Catalog. It was a lot of fun! Below are some photos of the displays, and instructions for the Make & Take. (Wouldn’t you know, I completely forgot to take any photos during the actual event. Guess I was having too much fun!)

 

Here are the Launch Party photos:

Here’s what we made:

I borrowed an extra stamp set, so there are more stamps in this photo than you actually need. 

We used two stamp sets for this card. The Painted Harvest stamp set (which will be available in a Bundle with the new Leaf Punch) has some lovely sentiments, but I just adore the font used in the Count My Blessings stamp set. 

If you’ve wanted to try a multi-step stamp set but were afraid to, the Painted Harvest stamp set is the perfect one to try first. The flower layers don’t have to be lined up exactly, so it’s good practice for the ones that do.

 

2017 Holiday Catalog Launch Party, Stampin' Up!, Make & Take

 

Here’s what we did:

Stamped with the Painted Harvest stamp set:

  • first flower layer in Crushed Curry onto the front of the card base
  • second flower layer in Cajun Craze
  • flower center in Chocolate Chip

Stamped with the Count My Blessing stamp set:

  • sentiment in Chocolate Chip

Assembled the card:

  • used a Bone Folder to burnish the score line in the Note Card
  • put the card in the envelope

That’s it! Using the pre-cut and pre-scored Note Cards makes this card super easy!

 

Here are today’s colors:

Celebrating OnStage with Wood Textures Suite for TA Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Onstage April 2017”.

Onstage is an event held for Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators only, where we get to see, feel, and play with brand-new soon-to-be-released products. This event was based on the brand new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

 

Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog #stampcandy

 

We want to show you some of the highlights of this event and hope that you can join us and other Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators in the future. Just one more reason to join my team!

Eight members of my team attended along with me, and we had a blast. We even had matching shirts, cups, and earrings!

Nine of us attended OnStage Savannah, April 8, 2017 Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Judy Newsome, Debbie Catlett, Caitlin Jones, Candy Ford, Linda Krueger, Missy Wiedeman, Donica Williams, Tamara Burton, and Kimberly Laidley.

My favorite thing about OnStage is seeing the demonstrators I only get to see at events like this. Well, and making new demonstrator friends. Oh, and the presentations. And the project ideas. And participating in swaps. And getting the newest catalog before anyone else. And getting some of the brand new products FREE before anyone else has even seen them. And pre-ordering new products before anyone else. So yeah, basically all of it.

Here are some shots from OnStage:

That evening, after OnStage was over and everyone had some dinner, Brian King’s team gathered in his suite for a Pajama Jam. We had snacks and went through the new catalog page by page. Of course, the Candy Hearts had matching pjs for the event (though not everyone has on their pj bottoms yet in this photo.)

I’m not sure what happened between these two shots, but Brian definitely had something to do with it. The camera caught him before he could get away. You can check out Brian’s blog post today for more photos of the Pajama Party.

Candy Hearts at Brian's 2017-04-08 onstage savannah pajama jam! #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I made:

I was honored to present the new Wood Textures Suite of products at OnStage Savannah, and to create a display board of projects made with them. Today I’m sharing one of those projects. At first I filled the crate with a bag of Easter color Peanut M&Ms tied with a piece of the brand new Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine.

Happy Easter with the new Wood Textures Suite by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Then I realized the M&Ms might be too heavy. The crate would be attached to a display board with velcro, and I was afraid the weight could cause the crate to warp or even tear. I found some small, lightweight Easter egg ornaments at Target, so I used those instead. (Most of my other display crates had miniature marshmallows in them for the same reason.)

Happy Easter with the new Wood Textures Suite by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

The “grass” in the crate is some shredded gift bag filler I had on hand.

 

Here’s what I did:

Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:

  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the crate die (2 pieces)

Stamped with the Wood Words stamp set:

  • floral image in Pool Party ink onto one slatted side of the crate

Stamped with the Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pool Party ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock (CS)

Stamped with the Falling Flowers stamp set:

  • small flower in Pink Pirouette ink over sentiment

Die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

  • sentiment

Assembled the crate:

  • two crate bottoms glued together, then tabs glued to sides to form crate
  • sentiment adhered to front of crate with Stampin’ Dimensionals

Here’s the hop:

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog (Candy Ford at stampcandy.net) so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list. You don’t want to miss any of these!
