Oh what a night last night was!

A few of my fellow demonstrators on my team took a ROAD TRIP to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Stampin’ Up Catalog Premier Party!  Oh.  My.  Gosh.  This was a BLAST!  Stampin’ Up rented out 40 movie theaters across the nation and Canada and over 7,600 demonstrators gathered together to watch a simulcast of the RED CARPET PREMIER to unveil the BRAND NEW 2014-2015 catalog.

Connie Stewart and a few of her teammates having too much fun at the Stampin' Up catalog premier party!  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com It was about a 2-hour drive from Oklahoma City but my fellow demonstrators had plenty to chat about.  What might the new In Colors be?  Would we see new alphabet stamps?  Can’t wait to see the new Framelits!  We had a ball!  We got to Tulsa about 2 hours before the event so we collectively agreed the Fuddruckers was the perfect dinner choice.  YUM!  We don’t have a Fuddruckers in the city so it was a real treat.  After eating until we were stuffed (with just enough room for a cookie) we headed to the theater!   The excitement was unbelievable!  We couldn’t wait to get that catalog in our HANDS!

But first… PRESENTS!  I created these fun wood mount boxes filled with movie theater goodies, a pen and paper for note taking and great catalog tabs for my team to mark their favorites in the catalog.

The night was magical as we watched Shelli Gardner and her wonderful staff create some AMAZING projects using some the brand new stamps, ink, and paper from our new catalog.  OH the ideas are just BURSTING from my head and I can’t wait to share with you all the fun new things that are waiting for you!

Wanna see the cover?  I know, you guys might not get as excited as I do about the cover of a new catalog, but I am just in love with it!

2014-2015 Stampin' Up catalog - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com


I love it!!!  It’s so crisp and clean!  Do you see any new products that you are just DYING to get your hands on?  Of course you do!  New alphabet stamps, sequins, Framelits, twine, super cute clothespins, and GLITTER galore!

The new catalog will come out on June 2nd!  Who wants one?!  Well, if you have placed a $20 or more order through my online store in 2014, be watching your mailbox because I will be mailing one of these beauties to you!  WAHOOO!  If you haven’t placed an order yet this year, not to worry!  There is still time!  You KNOW you want the new catalog (trust me…you want it).

Connie Stewart & Wendy Nix LOVE the new hashtag stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up catalog - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com One of my favorite things in the catalog are the hashtag sets.  I can’t show them to you (cruel, I know) but my daughter teases me all the time when I use hashtags, or my lack of using them correctly (#mydaughterjustdoesntgetme).  Here I am with my teammate Wendy and we say “We Love #’s”

It was a long drive home and we pulled in about 11:30pm.  I woke up Mr. Wonderful who started his new job today.  He was like a kid the night before the first day of school — too excited to sleep.  I am anxiously awaiting his arrival home to hear how it went.

I did have one other piece of excitement yesterday.  We spent the morning at the University going through college orientation.  Okay, someone should have warned me that this is REALLY REALLY hard!  It was a lot more emotional than I thought.  Christina’s work load her first semester is BRUTAL and she and I both were in tears on the way home.  Now, I know she can handle it but it was a lot for a 17-year old to take in…. this and the realization that her boyfriend is NOT attending the same college as she is.  So, if you could keep she and I in your prayers and we deal with “First Semester Blues”.  Thank you.

Now that these 2 big events are in the books, I am ready and excited to get back to some stamping!  You guys must be in withdrawal!  I know I am!  Tomorrow is STAMPIN’ GALS GONE WILD WEDNESDAY and Josee is busy working on a great video for us all.  I hope to share some things later this week.  Yay!  Or should that be #Yay?  See, I never know when the hashtag is appropriate….thus the reason Christina makes fun of me.

Anyhoo, today Stampin’ Up announced the WEEKLY DEAL for April 29-May 5, 2014
