I'm really excited with this year's In Colors.
These colors are really rich and have great color depth.
And notice----In Color markers. No more having to make your own!
I'm offering an In Color Samplers:
- In Color Markers
- Assortment Cardstock pack (81/2x11)
- 3 yards of each 1/2" Polka Dot Ribbon
- Sampler #2
3 yards of each 1/2" Polka Dot Ribbon
- 1 yard of each In Color 1/2" Polka Dot Ribbon $6.50
Either of these options gives you the flexibility of having the In-Colors, without committing your entire crafting budget to try these out. Ribbon is one of the most cost-effective methods of adding that WOW to your projects.
I will offer this option throughout the catalog year; but in compliance with SU! cash and carry policy, these offers are through orders only. The ribbon shares may be available based on the number of shares reserved at any time, but I can't guarantee it.

Each year Stampin' Up! out-does itself with each new catalog. This catalog is no exception.
The artwork is amazing. Just as the name says; it's an Idea Book and Catalog.
The colors are stunning. If you like bright colors, then these will become your favorites!
Here are several product shares that I'm organizing. (what are product shares? It's a sampling of a certain product for a smaller price. This allows you to see what becomes your favorite)
This catalog has a paper pack that is difficult to divide easily. I can't describe this in detail until July 1, but you will receive 3 6x6 sheets and 3 things from this particular pack.
I’m taking pre-orders now for Round One: I will place the order for the paper the very minute ordering opens for the new catalog on July 1st. As long as everything comes in ok, I will ship out on July 6th so you can start using them right away! If there are delays from Stampin’ Up, I will let you know. Hopefully they have a bunch on hand for us!
My prices reflect a 20% off special price for the first round of orders placed before July 1st!
After that, I’ll be going up to $25 and $18.
- Designer Series Paper Sampler #1 $22.00/$25.00 after 7/1
- 111 sheets, all 6x6 from 19 packs (one pack will be a Patterns pack) (6 styles were in the last catalog)
- Designer Series Paper Sampler #2 $15.00/$18.00 after 7/1
- NEW designs only (12 styles, 69 sheets)
I'm also offering an 2010 In Color Ribbon Share. (photo will be added when I'm back at home, with my beautiful new ribbon!)
Get 3 yards of each new In Color polka dot ribbon for $15.00. That's 18 yards! This price includes shipping.
You can pre-order this now, but I cannot place the order until July 1st. I will keep this ribbon share open as long as I continue to get orders.

I updated the Last Chance Retirement Accessory list.
I'm honestly glad that SU! posts the retirement list early enough for people to look at it and decide when is the best time during the month to get it. I'm also glad that SU! isn't stuck with a ton of merchandise they can't sell once the catalogs change over. Not everyone agrees with my opinion. Many customers are irritated that the catalog doesn't state that many accessories will only be available while supplies last once the list is posted and not to the end date of the catalog.
I'm glad that SU! does this. Inventory control is an imperfect science at best. Predicting the whims and desires of any product would be extremely nerve-wracking. Knowing that if I didn't do my job correctly, I will cost the company millions of dollars. No thanks. Since SU! produces stamp sets in-house, they can offer sets through the end of the month. Accessories are received from outside sources. Everyone knows that ordering in bulk will save you money. However, this isn't the case if you don't use up the product you bought in bulk before having to buy more of the same stuff, just maybe packaged a bit differently.
The fam is still on vacation. I'm hoping to get some pictures downloaded and posted tomorrow. It's been a wonderful time so far.

We arrived in Crossville, Tennessee late Saturday night. Crossville is about an hour west of Knoxville. We arrived late because we didn't leave the house till 2:30 in the AFTERNOON! Yep, that's what happens when you pack and try to tidy the house Saturday morning.
Yesterday was spent driving around the area to get an idea of what there was to do and where to do it. Shaela and Mom took the kids to the pool while Mitch and I hit Walmart and Lowe's. Mitch was in charge of bringing the grill. He HATES the grill that my mom gave him a few years back---to be fair and honest, it's pretty junky and not very sturdy. So he left it at home. That way it would force him to find another. Hence the trip to Lowe's.
We weren't sure how big Crossville would be, but it is a decent sized town with just about everything.
Happy Father's Day.
It's 9:30 on Monday morning. Everyone else in the family are still asleep, so I'm taking advantage of Mitch's computer. The kids tried to pack as much as they could into the day and are now wiped out.
Me? I've only been up for about 20 minutes. But I didn't pack any stamping stuff, so this quiet house gives me a chance to use Mitch's computer. His "A" letter likes to not type out and it's a bit annoying, but I'm adjusting to it.
I'm trying to not get stressed over the fact that I didn't bring anything to work on this week and have only 3 weeks or so till the Arts Festival. I have the beginnings of several projects that will just need the last final decorative touches to be finished. I know I'll be ready, but I didn't get anything packed in time. Everything seemed so bulky. We brought the golfcart and trailer, so we had the room, but I didn't get anything packed. Oh, well. It's supposed to be a family vacation--not a working one. That's the curse of a procrastintor.
My first box of catties will arrive while I'm gone. This box is for those who are currently in my two clubs or has scheduled a workshop/card class in July. Each lady will receive their complimentary copy of the catalog next week when I deliver their orders.
I'm charging $10.00 for the catalogs this year. This will include a gift certificate for $10.00 applied to your first order.
Here are a few ways to get a FREE Catalog:
1) Schedule a workshop or card class in July or August.
2) Place an online order through my website http://www.monicagargac.stampinup.net by June 30 of $40 or more.
3) Reserve your spot in one of the 4 clubs that will start in September.
4) Gather a few orders from your friends and place a qualifying workshop (at least $150.00) earning yourself Hostess rewards and free merchandise.
I'll be posting open house hours later this week where you can pick up your copies of the new catalog and see the new yummy In Colors.
Off for more quality family time.
