Statement of My Heart Garden Impressions Card

The Statement of My Heart photopolymer stamp set is a limited edition stamp set that is only available in the Gotta Have It All Bundle through May 31, 2018. Today I’ve paired it with the new Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP.) I usually use card stock and embellishments in colors from the DSP I’m using, but today’s card shows how you don’t have to do that. The two card stock colors are not in the DSP, but still go with it beautifully. Sometimes you just have to look at the DSP and the card stock together to see if they “go” together. 

 

Here’s what I made:

BOGO Yard Sale & Open House

Open House & BOGO Sale #stampcandy

If you’ll be in the Atlanta area Saturday, June 2, 2018, you must stop by for my BOGO Yard Sale and Open House. The door opens at noon. You can drop in anytime between noon and 4pm. Of course, the closer to noon you arrive, the better your chances of getting all the BOGO sale goodies you want!

It’s free to attend, but please RSVP here so I’ll have enough of everything prepared.

VERY IMPORTANT: Park along the street (Woodcliff) behind our building. DO NOT part next to any of the units in the complex, or you will be towed and I will be fined. Thanks!

BOGO Yard Sale:

Why am I calling it a BOGO Yard Sale? Because you pay yard sale prices, plus you still get the Buy One Get One deal!

Usually at a BOGO Sale of this type, the BOGO Sale items are marked full retail price, then whatever you spend gets applied to an order from the catalog. This time I’m doing it a little differently.

I’m reclaiming my room upstairs, so I must make space. I have a LOT of great craft supplies that must go. So I’ve marked them down drastically – most items are at least 50% off, many even more than that. So you’ll save a ton of money on the yard sale items PLUS whatever you spend still gets applied to an order from the brand new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! 

 

  • shop my craft yard sale
  • whatever you spend gets applied to an order of new items from the new catalog
  • you only pay shipping and tax on the new items
  • lots of retired Stampin’ Up! products, even the ones I’ve been holding onto because I love them so much!
  • other brands are included in the BOGO Yard Sale including Martha Stewart, Tim Holtz, Anna Griffin, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Darice, McGill, Creative Memories, and many more!
  • have your new catalog order ready to save time ordering
  • If you’ve ordered from me in the past year, I will send you a catalog in May. If not, you can get your catalog at the event. I’ll have the pdf version of the full catalog posted HERE on June 1.

A sea of stamps, still to be marked down to 50% or more offBOGO Yard Sale prep #stampcandy

Out with the Old (Retiring Items Update) & In with the New (Early Release Products)

Out With the Old

Only 28 days left to buy retiring products. That is, only 28 days to buy what’s left of the retiring products. If there is something you want, I highly recommend you get it now rather than later. Some products have already sold out – see the discontinued chart below. Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed available until May 25. Everything else is available only while supplies last.

Here are the retiring product lists in pdf and spreadsheet format:

Here are the products from the retiring lists that are no longer available:Stampin' Up! discontinued products as of 3 May 2018 #stampcandy

 

In With the New

There are four amazing bundles of brand new products that you can order now! The first three Share What You Love theme bundles include free products. With the fourth bundle, of the new in color ink pads, you save 10%! These bundle prices and free product offers end on May 31, so order them now and save!

If a bundle is “backordered” that means that one of the items in the bundle is on backorder. You will receive everything else in the order as usual, then the backordered item will be delivered to you as soon as it’s available.

Here’s Candy’s Choice: 

This bundle has 13 items (3 of them free) including 3 stamp sets. This is the only way you can get the limited edition Statement of My Heart stamp set – it is only available in this bundle, and only through May 31 – and it’s free! 

 

CANDY’S EXTRA MAY SPECIAL: Order the Gotta Have It All Bundle from me and earn more Gumball Rewards!

This bundle would normally earn you 2 gumballs, but while it’s available in May, I’ll give you 3!  That’ll get you 1 gumball closer to a free stamp set of your choice!
