My Stampin' Up! Classes

Thursday, May 31, 2012

New boutique look for part of my studio; Retired sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Tomorrow, Friday, June 1, from 10 a.m. to noon, I'll be at my studio. Come by and pick up a new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog for only $2.50, and shop my retired items. I have a ton of them! When you buy $50 in retired stuff, you'll receive $5 Stampin' Bucks from me toward an order in the NEW catalog. After $50, you'll receive a Stampin' Buck for every $10 spent. It all adds up!

Here's a quick list of what's for sale: Stamps, wheels, punches, paper, Big Shot dies/sizzlits/embosslits/letterpress plates/texturz plates, ribbon, decor elements, brads, clips, ink pads, fabric, and so much more! If you're looking for something in particular, please email me at to ask if I have it, and if it's for sale.

I've been wanting to change up things at my studio for awhile now, and finally got time on Monday to clean out some cobwebs (literally) and rearrange things. Only part of the studio is done. I think I could spend days organizing and clearing things out! I love these little concrete shoes. I found them for only a buck at a sale last weekend.

Here's a view of most of what I did. The secretary I recently rehabbed is on the left, with various shelves and tables around the two walls. It's like its own room now. I moved two 8-foot tables (you can see a chair and stamps that are on the table in the bottom right corner) farther from the wall on the left. Hopefully I'll sell enough retired ones to clear off the tables! I have stamps on tables, coming out of drawers, stacked in bins and small tables... it's crazy.

I brought this bird house from home. It sits on the top shelf with a ribbon wreath I made.

I had the watering can at the studio and added some plant pokes made from aluminum flashing, 12-gauge wire. I only have four three chicken wire frames for sale, because Shirley wouldn't return one after a show I had.

The little round table has a bunch of stamps below the card rack. I've got stamps everywhere! There's a metal cake plate on the right of the desk filled with single stamps. I have two small wreaths on the desk, along with some banners, a couple retired punches, and retired ribbons, black jewels and stitched felt.

The round table and louvered doors were purchased last week. I need to make some hooks to hang all of my wreaths on the doors. I have lots of standard and jumbo wheels for sale too (all retired, of course). I've got a basket of mini albums all made up and for sale on the bottom of the end table too.

My punch-art turtles and bears were popular at the Heirloom show a couple of weeks ago. A lot of people took photos of them. A few people even paid the whopping $1.50 asking price! My daughter and I had fun making them. I just used a couple of mini glue dots to stick them to the front of a sealed skinny cello bag filled with plain M&Ms.

I hope you'll come by tomorrow - and bring friends! Have a great day.
