Those marked "dormant" rather than a page number are coming from our dormant list. These were available during the current catalog - they just weren't in the actual catalog. Hint: if the sets on the dormant list are not retiring - there is a VERY good chance they will be in the new catalog!
Stampin' Up! has announced the Fall-Winter Retired List. Head on over to my web site (www.andreamason.stampinup.net) and check it out, if you haven't seen it already. A few of my favorites are on that list! They are also retiring one of the baby sets that I wanted. Hmmm... do I get it now, or wait to see what comes in the new catalog? Ack! Decisions!!
By the way... all sets on the retired list are 10% off! Sweet! Even sweeter... FREE shipping on orders of $70 or more! If you don't have a $70 order, I will combine orders to save you the shipping! Just let me know! I'm all about saving some green this year!
And don't forget... you can get any set in the sampler for 20% off when you spend $20!

These are travel mugs that I stamped the inserts for. The two that aren't colored in can be colored by the kids and given as a gift. I think I will make a few more of these for my last craft fair of the year! The 3 below have found a home (Thanks Trina!).
I had a beautiful one using the dragon fly from the Bugs & Kisses set. They were stamped in different colors, and I added Dazzling Diamonds to the wings. It was so pretty. Well, it was the first one that sold! Great! Well, not so much. The lady that bought it wanted it because she's been looking all over for these type of cups because her son had made her one of these a long time ago and the cup got ruined. She just wanted the cup! I thought it was funny, but at the same time wanted to give her one of the other ones that I had.
The sale is a limited-time, 20 to 50 percent discount on select product bundles from November 26 through December 1, 2008.
Quantities of discounted bundles are limited, so place orders online early.

We stamped the Snow Swirled tree image in Old Olive Craft Ink. Then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds mixed with Clear Embossing Powder over the image and heat set it. You can use Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder too - but I like getting more bang for my buck by mixing my own when I need it! That way I have Dazzling Diamonds, and Clear Embossing Powder for all my other projects!

I found these books at the Dollar Tree. They have plastic covers so they won't tear apart in your purse. They have tabs too, so you could make a section for gifts, food, dates of parties, or maybe a tab for each family member.
I've seen these box/bags on many sites, but was afraid to try them. Oh my goodness! They are so easy!! Here are some super instructions for how to construct your box. I didn't add the extra strip around the bottom of mine.

A quick list of what we had:
I came home with a lot of stuff on Thursday, did a little better on Saturday. Sold some more stuff at Hostess group on Monday. And now Suz has some stuff at her school to sell for Secret Santa items. I have one more fair on December 7th. I don't think I am going to make anything new for that one. I don't know where I'm going to put all the stuff I currently have!
My Dad loaned me a tent for Thursday because we were outside. Well, he gave me his business tent! So here we were with all of our Stampin' Up! goods under a giant blue tent that says "Golf Channel Tour". We had many male visitors, but as soon as they realized it was a trap - they took off!
The highlight of Saturday is when 2 ladies visited our table. They were admiring our goodies, but then realized what some of the goods were in. Longaberger baskets! Not just any Longaberger baskets though. These were like gold! Oh, my dear friend Suz listened to these 2 ladies go on an on about how much they were worth because they were two toned, had the stamp on the bottom, and had the metal labels! My friend Staci and I giggled. It felt like we were being filmed on the Antique Roadshow! 1986 authentic Longaberger baskets! Oh my word, why is this out in the open? It was rather amusing. So Suz, did you check out how much they are worth? :)

Husband took my camera with him on his business trip - so I'll have to remember to borrow my sons. How sad is that?! :)
Our next fair is on Saturday. There will be over 100 vendors on Saturday! I can't wait!!

Here is what my Hostess group made at our make up session. My friend Suz took this photo and put it on her blog. I swiped it - cause now I can't find my tag in the sea of crafts that is growing in my office! These craft fairs will be here soon, or so I hope!
It is a name tag that you can wear, add to a bag, lunch box, purse, anything you can think of! I found the badge holders at the Dollar Tree! I used Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and a piece of scrap DSP. The ribbon is from my scrap bin too!

I used Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Whisper White to assemble mine. The stamps are from All in the Family. Family Accessories, and Family Phrases.
Remeber the punch owl I made? Here he is on a 6x6 scrapbook page.
He is on a Really Rust base with Chocolate Chip strips and Very Vanilla for the photo mat. I used a few dimensionals to prop him up on the page.

I'm so excited to share with you that you can now shop on my Stampin' Up! web site 24 hours a day! So when you awake from a dream in the middle of the night with the ideal scrapbook page or project - you can jump online an order your supplies! For all of you night owls - no more playing phone or email tag (although it is quite entertaining at times)!
In order to receive catalog pricing and Hostess benefits, you must shop through my website! Please also note that you must still contact me to place workshop orders if you have collected orders other than your own. Orders placed through my web site will be mailed directly to you!
Here are som more important FAQs about online ordering:
Q: What is a demonstrator’s web site and what can I find there?

To find if your demonstrator has a web site, use the Demonstrator Directory to locate her. If she has a web
site, a link to her site will be listed next to her name on the results page.
Q: How do I buy products online?

Attach the word window to one of the ovals, making sure the oval and the word window are even at the bottom. Then attach the remaining 2 ovals to the back of the word window strip, slightly offset. Then attach to the tag.
I used the "for you" stamp from the Fresh Cuts stamp set.
Here's a closer look at the completed tag. Are you wondering what I've attached my tag to?
