Stamping With Friends + Stampin' Up! Catalog Premiere

A couple of weeks ago, a few of my stampin' buddies & I got together for a night of pizza, music, and stamping. Also known as a PMS night! Boy - the weird looks you get from husbands when you say you're having a PMS party. Hahaha.

Anyhoo ... most of us attending prepared a card project for everyone to make (aka Shoebox Swap) and I thought I'd share the finished cards with you today. Enjoy!

Some great card ideas, wouldn't you say? I think most of these cards used stamps and/or accessories that are on the Stampin' Up! retiring list. Boo hoo! I'm a bit surprised at the number of stamp sets that are already sold out and no longer available. In previous years, additional stamp sets would be manufactured to fulfill orders placed from the retiring list. That has changed this year and once current on-hand quantities are sold, the item number is removed from the system. See the remaining retiring products here.

Stampin' Up! Catalog Premiere Event

A few days after our stamping party, a bunch of us piled in the car destined for the Stampin' Up! Catalog Premiere in Orlando. Woot! Another great time with the girls and a super fun event from the Stampin' Up! crew (as always) for demonstrators. The catalog premiere events were held in theaters around the country with a simulcast from Long Beach, CA. We got to learn lots of cool things about the new catalog, new products, and watch stamping presentations.

Having a blast at the Stampin' Up! Catalog Premiere Party

Everyone in attendance received the new catalogs and a brand new stamp set (project coming soon!), plus a few lucky ladies won more goodies from the prize patrol - although sadly none of our group. No matter, we were happy, happy girls after the big reveal!

Quick and easy birthday card. #cardmaking #papercrafts #StampinUp

Our fearless leader and upline (Debbie) provided a quick make and take project for us to do while there. Isn't it a cute birthday card? Perfect for one of my little niece's birthdays coming up soon.
