A Little This and That …

Do you have trouble deciding what colors to combine on a card? I often start with a piece of Designer Series Paper on my card and that makes it easy. Just choose colors that are in the paper. Did you know that all colors used in a pack of DSP are printed on the back of the package? But what about when you are using DSP on your card? Here are some color combinations for the new 2020-2021 In Colors.






The following items are not yet available for purchase, although they are included in the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog:

  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (item 149653)
  • Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (item 150673)
  • Base Plate & Die Plate Pack (item 149657)
  • Specialty Plate (item 154711)
  • Mini Base Plate & Mini Embossing Plates Pack (item 151003)
  • Mini Cutting Plates (item 151004)
  • Magnetic Cutting Plate (item 149656)
  • Mini Magnetic Cutting Plate (item 151005)
  • Impression Mats (item 149660)

There is good news though as we’ve been told they will be available soon. Even though I do own Big Shots I plan on getting the new machine. I am most excited about the magnetic cutting plate which is entirely magnetized. The previous plate with the Big Shot only had strips of magnets which is why, on occasion, the dies jumped around. It is also a self healing plate and replaces one of the cutting plates in the sandwich. You simply place the dies directly on the magnetic plate.


Open House Dilemma

I usually have my new catalog open house event in July along with my BOGO sale of retired stamps. But this Covid pandemic has caused me to rethink that. As many of you, I have not been going out much and when I do I always wear a mask. I had initially decided I would try to do the open house mid July but with numbers of positive cases in Florida rising again and with the number of people who usually come to my open house I don’t think it’s a good idea right now to have the open house. I am hoping August will look better. I may post photos of my retired stamp sets allowing you to pick what you might want to buy with that purchase amount then available in free new product. Be watching for more information on that. And I will keep you updated with decisions on an open house and upcoming specials.

Have a good day and be safe.
