Well, I got a pre-order in yesterday; if you're a long-time customer of mine, you should have received your Occasions Mini - which goes live April 1!! - in the mail. Perhaps you noticed the new MATCHBOX DIE for the Big Shot? Oh, YEAH. You KNOW I had to have it. :D I've had a couple of questions about its size already, so here we go!
I just threw this one together, so I could play a little. :D I'm still designing for tonight's class! AUGH!
Anyway. :D That's Riding Hood Red Designer Series Paper, and the organdy ribbon. This die goes together super-simply - but if you're using Whisper White for the inside part of the box, I would recommend shimming it - the card stock's thinner than the others, and doesn't show score lines well AT ALL.
I LOVE the labels on this die, too! This is the biggest of the three. I see LOTS of potential for them!
Measurements of the box are (in the orientation I have mine): 2-3/4" tall, 2-1/4" wide, and approx. 3/4" deep - it will hold 4 Hershey's Nuggets, but not Nestle Treasures. :D
Keep your eyes open! You'll be seeing a lot of this one. :D Now I've got to jet - TOO much to do for tonight.... :D Have a WONDERFUL day - and take the time to STAMP something!!!!!!!!!!!!

Three Easy Payments Option for the Starter Kit is Here!
From today through April 30, 2009, new recruits can take advantage of our Three Easy Payments option for their Starter Kit. If you have potential recruits who are concerned about being able to pay for the Starter Kit in one up-front payment, let them know they don't have to wait or worry any more about whether to sign up to be demonstrator. The Three Easy Payments option is the ideal solution. With just an initial partial payment, new recruits can get their Starter Kits right away and start building their businesses. Two subsequent monthly payments will take care of the rest.
Let prospective recruits know that now is the time to sign up! With the discounted Sale-A-Bration Starter Kit price and the Three Easy Payments option, they'll have the opportunity to take advantage of two great financial benefits at once. Once Sale-A-Bration is over, they'll still have through April 30 to get the Three Easy Payments option, but why wait?

This first card, again, is mostly SIP - we did use the 1-3/4" punch to punch out the medallion, but you could easily cut it out!
Stamp set is SIMPLE FRIENDSHIP - so many people said they'd just overlooked this one, but LOVED the card and now are ordering the set. :) Colors are Real Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White. We used a Real Red and a Green Galore Stampin' Write Marker to color in the centers of the flowers and three little leaves. :) It's a 3x6 card, super simple, and we even have envelopes to match!
This one's mostly Big Shot work. All together, now: I LOVE MY BIG SHOT! :D
Stamp set is FRESH CUTS. Inks are Perfect Plum and Certainly Celery. Card stock colors are Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Pale Plum, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, and vellum card stock. The centers of the flowers are rhinestone brads, available both in the Pretties Kit and separately - but I also did some cards with half-pearls as the centers of the flowers, and they were very beautiful.
Yes, that's my favorite ticket corner punch. :) Butterfly is the SU! exclusive Beautiful Butterflies die, and the flowers are the Simple Flower embosslit. SO easy to use, and such a SPRINGY card!!
OK, I'm on my way out the door. Literally! If I messed anything up, or forgot anything, leave me a comment and I'll fix things when I get home. :D Have a WONDERFUL day - and for goodness' sake, take the time to STAMP SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Three Easy Payments Starter Kit Option Coming Soon
During economically challenging times, most of us tighten our budgets. Some expenditures that were once comfortable might now stretch a budget thin. We don't want anyone's efforts to budget wisely to become a barrier to joining Stampin' Up, especially considering the wonderful benefits--personal and economical--being a demonstrator can bring. This is why we're working on a Three Easy Payments option for the Starter Kit. For a limited time, with a partial initial payment, a new recruit can receive her Starter Kit and get her business running. Two subsequent monthly payments take care of the rest.
It's coming BEFORE THE END OF SALE-A-BRATIONS, everyone - that means you can pay in three installments AND STILL GET THE GREAT PROMOTIONS THAT COME WITH SIGNING UP DURING SAB!
As SOON as I know, I'll tell you when it's available. If you're interested in being part of my team, please EMAIL ME NOW!

This is the spotlighting technique; this original version's been around a LONG time.
The set I used is RUSTIC ROOSTER, a Level 2 Hostess-only set. The rooster's head is punched out with a 1" circle punch, and I trimmed Chocolate Chip card stock to be a very thin mat underneath the circle.
Card stock colors are Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Ruby Red. The Whisper White strip is stamped in Basic Brown and sponged with Creamy Caramel. Ruby Red card stock is stamped with Ruby Red classic ink.
This stamp set is really growing on me; I'm going to miss it when the new Idea Book comes out in July! :D But you'll be seeing more of him, I promise....
To be put on my newsletter email list, please email me here! I have to have it in writing! :)
Have a great evening, and KEEP STAMPIN'!
