Today I'm sharing another of my three dimensional swaps - a Stuffed Christmas Ornament.
Yes, we will be doing an entire class of these and similar ornaments this fall - so be on the look out for that class. You'll be able to customize your Christmas tree this year for very little $$!
This cute ornament uses some more of the NEW Bella Rose Designer Series Paper - the colors are Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette.
The adorable tag was created with a HOSTESS stamp set - Deer Friends. You should see the other 7 stamps in the set - TOO CUTE! You are going to LOVE it!
Oh, did I mention that if you are an August or September Stampin' Party HOSTESS - I have a special Surprise for you! But you have to host a party to find out!
Tune in tomorrow for the next fun Convention project! xoxo from Salt Lake City! ~Robin

I was just signing off here when I saw this announcement on Stampin' Up!s website. Click on the link below to see the list of Accessories that will be 25% off beginning Monday morning at 7am - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
This is NOT the entire list of retiring accessories, however, it's just a special promotion that will run through August 1oth - or until individual items sell out.
Please feel free to e-mail me with your orders and I will submit them ASAP on Monday Morning. I must have a credit card to place any orders with no delay, so if I don't have one on file for you, please leave contact info so I can reach you on Monday morning.
With all the craziness around my home these last few weeks, I just needed to get away and take a breath. So Emma and I have come to Southern Pines, NC to visit my friend Karen and her kids. We haven't seen them in 2 years this month since they were transferred from DC to Ft. Bragg! Her husband, Greg is serving in Iraq until next year, so please add him and my precious friend to your prayers for safety and encouragement. As Greg likes to say, his life is "like a bad country song", he is "working in a palace and living in a trailer!" Crazy, huh?
Emma and I have been enjoying our visit very much and will find it hard to come home tomorrow night. But, with Stampin' Up!'s National Convention just 10 days away I have a LOT of work to do!
In the meantime, I hope to see many of you at Stamp camp this week either on Tuesday, or Saturday AND I'll be posting the Retiring Accessories list early Monday Morning, so stay tuned!
Ta for now,
Thursday, July 17, 2008
The Retiring Accessories list will be published on Monday, July 21st! I will post this to my blog as soon as I receive it and will also send an e-mail to you if you are on my mailing list. Remember, all orders from this list are FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED. Once items sell out, they cannot be ordered again. This list will include items from the Accessories section of the catalog as well as Stampin' Around Wheels!
I will be placing individual orders as I recieve them from you in order to assure that you get what you need. Please plan to use a Credit Card for these purchases. Now that Stampin' Up! takes credit cards, it's the fastest way for me to submit an order for you especially when time is of the essence.
Don't forget as well the great sale on all the Hodgepodge Hardware kits. They are 25% off this entire month while supplies last. These will be retiring with this catalog!
Happy Stamping everyone!

The focal image is from one of my favorite retiring stamp sets - Year after Year. This set is so versatile - it really has something for every occasion. I will surely miss it!
The card stock is Soft Sky edged with Soft Sky ink (all pieces) and the backgroud layer is Basic Gray stamped with Basic Gray ink using the swirl image from Carte Postale (also retiring!).
The cake image is stamped on to Shimmer White cardstock in Basic Gray ink and colored with Going Gray marker. Of course it had to have Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some wedding bling!
Silver Brads, Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon and two punches for the sentiment and voila! - Beautiful wedding or anniversary card!
See you on Monday!

Yes, of course I'll miss her - but man, have I got some work to catch up on!
In the meantime, I've scheduled a post for Saturday so you'll have something new to look at over the weekend. Then it's back to regularly scheduled programming on Monday!
These pictures are from July 4th 2004. Emma and my Dad were in the local parade on Main St. in my parents home town that day. She had so much fun throwing candy out to the onlookers. Later on, we went to watch the fireworks from the local boatyard and Emma was enjoying the evening breeze with her flag. That 4th remains one of my all time favorites, ever! I hope you all have a fabulous 4th with your loved ones! I love this holiday so much! I'm very patriotic and enjoy the celebration each year of just being an American. My Dad is a veteran and our good friend Greg is serving in Iraq right now, so I can't help but remember that the liberty we enjoy is bought with a price. I hope to never take it for granted.
God bless you all today, my friends - and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Goes a long way, doesn't it? It occurred to me that I know a lot of kind people. People who have the ability to make your day brighter just because they exist. That's such a blessing and I don't want to ever take them for granted! So, for all of you kindhearted friends out there, thanks for being you! This card is for you! Enjoy!
Stamps: Floral Background, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Glossy White, Whisper White
Other: Certainly Celery DSP, Scallop Punch, Rhinestone Circle Brads Ice (green) Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Brayer, Sanding Blocks
This card uses the Faux Linen technique. I stamped the Floral Background onto Glossy CS with Celery ink. Sanded it with the sanding blocks in two directions, then brayered on Apricot Ink and wiped clean with a paper towel. It's much prettier in real life, my camera doesn't pick up the subtleties of the texture.

Do I hear cheering in Mudville? This is AWESOME news!
Here is the official SCOOP from Stampin' Up!:
When it comes to quality stamp sets, Stampin' Up! has been an industry leader for several years. Our original, exclusive stamps have earned the prestigious Creating Keepsakes Readers' Choice Award for best rubber stamps eight years in a row, and every year we work to make them even better!
We're excited to announce that all new stamp sets in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog (including new hostess sets) will be die cut for your convenience! We know you enjoy the flexibility of custom mounting your stamps, and with these die-cut sets, all you'll need to do is pop, peel, and place before you begin stamping.
Only our new stamps will be die cut; sets carried over from the last catalog and those on the dormant list will still require trimming. But, each new set will feature a die cut icon so you will have no problems identifying die-cut sets.
The new Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book and Catalog will be available in early August. You can pre-order your copy from me for just $5! Pre-orders only thru July 15th! e-mail me at email@example.com to reserve your copy. Cash and check only for pre-orders.
You will be able to pick up your pre-ordered Catalog on August 9th at my Aloha stamp camp!
Only those pre-ordering will be guaranteed a catalog on that day unless you have a workshop scheduled for August or September. Hostesses for August and September will receive their catalog FREE as my gift to you!
I've just this morning completed my sneak peek order for NEW stamp sets, paper - a NEW PUNCH and all the New In-Colors! I can't wait to share all the fabulous things in store for you in the coming weeks!
