Hi Everyone,

A busy weekend is upon us with Dance Arts Theatre's production of a compilation of short musicals. "Babes in Toyland" is the main show. My daughter, Sam is a fairy, tree, and a rooster. She has been dancing for close to 11 years. The girls have a "Secret Pal" during the spring production. Sam decided to make chipboard clipboards for a couple of the dancers. I wanted to share them with you today.






How great are these. Sam did a fantastic job picking out the designer papers and colors she knew that girls would like. One is based on Night of Navy and the other is Old Olive. Both papers have been retired, but what a great use of them. I also had Sam used Blendability markers to color rhinestones for the Old Olive board. I'm sad that Stampin' Up! can't sell these anymore due to the poor manufacturing, but I'm sure they will return in the future.

Retired List Reminder
April 21, 2015 
                
 It's getting closer to the Stampin' Up! year, they're getting ready to retire stamps and accessories from the 2014-2015 annual catalog. Don't worry, though! You will have the opportunity to order retiring products at discounted prices (up to 50 percent off retail) before they're gone. Start evaluating your current inventory and get ready to share the retired list with your customers when it goes live on April 21. Be sure to get your accessories first, because these are only available until gone. I will post as soon as the retired list is posted. I will also have monthly mystery hostess events in the next couple of months so people can get all that they need and have a chance to earn hostess benefits.


Well I'm off to the show, so happy stampin'
