It is Time to Say Good-bye! And I'm still trying to catch up!

We had such a wonderful trip to Alaska and can't believe it has been a week since we have been back. Since our return, I have been busy doing laundry, cleaning, planned and prepped my monthly card night, finished working on some special baby shower invites for a friend, catching up on e-mails and gardening. The kids are now into their soccer as well which falls on the same nights as gymnastics so Tuesdays and Thursdays seem to be the busiest!! I have so much I want to accomplish in June as well and can't wait to share the new upcoming Idea Book & Catalogue with everyone!!

Wednesday marked the 1st of June and the release of the Discontinued Stamps and Accessories list. I did send this info out in an e-mail so I know you got it right away. Now I am catching up here. This is a great spot to return to so you have the direct links to the PDF lists.

Hundreds of products from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue and Definitely Decorative Brochures are retiring. Now is your last chance to get them before they are gone for good.

Please note the last chance accessories are only available while supplies last. The stamp sets and Decor Elements are created at Stampin' Up!'s own facilities so they will be able to fulfill any backorders.

Here are the lists below! The Accessories List will be updated each business day by 4:00pm (MT) with availability information. Call me today to place your order or visit my online store and order from there. Have a good look at the lists..... you will see some accessories marked down and the decor elements are also marked down!!!!!

Stampin' Up! is significantly reducing the Definitely Decorative product line. As a result, the last-chance Definitely Decorative list is very long. While they do not anticipate running out of any of these items, they are too only available while supplies last. Please refer to a Definitely Decorative Brochure to cross check which products are on the list.

There is a very small list of products that will not be in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue, but that will still be available for purchase. I am just waiting for them to post the list.

If you want to place an order then please contact me as soon as possible to make sure we get it submitted in a timely manner to ensure availability. I do have a couple orders going in this week so can tag your order onto those to save in shipping.

If you have any questions about the retired stamps/accessories or any of the reconfigured products, please don't hesitate to ask. I just might have some insider information!

For a sneek peek of whats to come.... here is a card made with one of the new stamp sets that we received on the Alaskan cruise....

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

More Spectacular Views of Alaska!

I should be relaxing but there is so much to see and do I don’t want to miss a beat and this morning was no exception. I was up at 5:30 am to see the sites as we entered into Tracy Arm Fjord. What a gorgeous site to see. I don’t even think I can capture the immense beauty of it.

Here is a photo of the glacier in the Tracy Arm Fjord:

It has been an incredible morning so far and as Ashley is sitting through a culinary demo and I am sitting in the back of the room typing up this post and then I will log into the internet to post it. The sun is shining and we have had great weather so far... no rain!

We did another swap last night at dinner and this is what I made to swap with the other 5 gals at my dinner table. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to share with you all the things I received. I have some great project ideas that we are going to make when I get home!

I made a bookmark with a bevelled windowpane and I used Digital Studio to create my art work with the Open Sea stamps. I just love my digital studio and really haven’t been using it to its potential. It is a product I think everyone should try because there are so many possibilities. I will try and show you all more when I am home. It is fantastic!!

We are just on our way to Juneau now and Ashley and I will be doing a tour of the Mendenhall Glacier and partaking in a Salmon Bake.

Ketchikan yesterday was wonderful and we finished off our night with some great entertainment. Here is a photo of the cute little town and Ashley and I on our float plane adventure.

We have been receiving pillow gifts every night when we get back to our room. It is so exciting. The first night was a cute little purse, second night of a vouchor for two pairs of Sunglasses and last night was a new 6 x 6 album from the next catalogue.

I just love Stampin’ Up! and all they do for us!

Don’t forget my online ordering special for while I am away.

Have a great day!

Greetings from Alaska

Well, we aren’t quite there yet.... but will be first thing tomorrow morning. I am enjoying everything so much it is so much fun being on a cruise ship. General Session with Shelli this morning was a blast as well. Lots of great projects with new products and I am loving the new in colours! I am sure you will all love them as well. Can’t wait until 1 June when I can start showing some samples of them.

Tonight we have our first formal dinner and the Captains toast. It is very exciting. I have a great bunch of demonstrators sitting at my dinner table and tonight we are doing our first swap. Here is one of the cards I chose to do for one of the swaps.

I look forward to sharing the cards I receive from this swap.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be back sometime tomorrow evening. We are in Ketchikan all day! Can’t wait and fingers are crossed for nice weather.

Have a great day!

Alaska Here I come!

I am back to update my blog. I see it has been way too long since I have been here. I am off on the Stampin' Up! Alaskan Cruise and I thought this would be the perfect place to keep everyone up to date on my trip. I might actually get back into the groove of blogging. Please start checking back here often for up to date info on Alaska, new products and lots of fun stuff. I need to update the buttons on the sidebars as well so they are not so out of date.... but I will start with the blog posts and then work on the rest when I have a moment.

You can sign up to receive e-mails automatically notifying you when I have added a blog post. This is a great way to go because then you don't have to remember to check.

Well, I am off to enjoy my first day in Seattle and get ready to head to the ship!! Very exciting!

Thanks for stopping By,
