Hello and Happy Friday!

We have a winner….or should I say….we have 2 winners as I shared yesterday that if there were lots of comments…then I would let me generous heart pick more than one…You know what to do….take a deep breath and if you name is…

Debbie ???? and Alyece Garrett

Than you need to push that chair back and put up those hands and get shakin’….do that dance – that good old HAPPY DANCE as you just won a set of the DSP Swatch Books from the NEW Catalog (a $27.50 value)

I say WOOT-WOOT as this is one product that I would not be without while I am creating…not only is it super helpful…it eliminates having a BUNCH OF PAPER out trying to figure what to use! Below are the comments….email me your address!


I will not be able to mail them to you until the catalog goes live (June 4th) as I do not have all of the paper to cut the swatch books (I only have 8 out of the 11 offerings) but as soon as the GREEN LIGHT is on to order….they will be on their way to Randall Lane!

If either of you are getting more shares….and if you want the I WANT IT ALL….(as let’s face it….we are crafters and we love our shares) I will simply deduct the $27.50 from your order!




Now to the Product Share offerings!


I know many of you have ordered Product Shares from me for years and you know that I just love doing them. Trust me, I know the excitement and sheer fun it is to go to that mailbox and see HAPPY MAIL filled with NEW GOODIES!!!!

This year I really am skippin’ a beat as we will be able to order on Tuesday the 4th so I will be able to get them rockin’ and rollin’ over the weekend to hit my TARGET DATE of mailing your shares to you within a week of ordering! (It seems like the last several catalogs have landed on a Thursday or Friday making us lose a weekend to work on shares!)

Naturally the easiest share to order is the I WANT IT ALL SHARE…as there is nothing like making it super easy and knowing that you are getting the ultimate buffet of new products! (Smart Stamper)

My fun and super practical incentive for you all that order the I WANT IT ALL OFFERING is pictured below….you know me by now…I like to offer items that are practical, useful and always a classic!

I get many questions from readers saying – HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR BOWS BEHAVE when you use Linen Thread and Bakers Twine….ready???….there she is in her glory…a container of beeswax!!! That’s my secret weapon –  all you need to do is run your thread over the grooves in the beeswax and PRESTO….your thread makes perfect bows with well behaved “ends” 🙂





The I WANT IT ALL IS $152.50 (yep…you can do the math of adding them up) but these are the 1st to ship and also include the super cute “giftie” of Linen Thread and Bees wax from me!


Here you go….a la carte offerings….

Stampin’ Up! does paper well – actually…VERY WELL…..but one thing that ALWAYS SEEMS TO HAPPEN is….the pictures in catalog does not do them justice. They try but we all know that it looks so much better in person!

My Shares are all 6″ X 12″ so you can get a great feel of the paper, having an ample amount to do more than 1 project.


We have (9) new DSP that are the 12 X 12 size and (3) Specialty DSP that are in the 12 X 12 size and then (1) New Foil Sheets offing that has 3 colors that are also in the 12 X 12 size. (See break down below)

Share #3 –  Paper Share – Color Collections – $35.00 

I am just “over the moon happy” that Stampin’ Up! is returning an offering like this. I can hardly wait to get my hands on all of the collections as I firmly feel that this is a fabulous way to take the “guess work” out of what to reach for. You will have EVERY color collection that we have.

This IS one of the KEY ADDITIONS to the Stampin’ Up! Catalog for me….look below…GINGHAM  – I am in love! This offering will include a FULL 6″ X 6″ sheet of each color in each collection – 6 collection in total = a total of (100) 6″ X 6″ sheets!

Share #4  – Ribbon Shares – $30.00

Now here is another thing that Stampin’ Up! does well…. RibbonI know, I know…this is another area where we all have  issues – remember, I GET IT as I am the exact same way! (and to make matters worse – we have a Ribbon Outlet in our town)

Remember….I am SIMPLE – I just take a roll and cut it into quarterr…. (John can handle this job….I actually I put pieces of Washi Tape on our Kitchen Counter….get a pair of Ribbon Scissors for him and say – HAVE FUN!)

Share #5–  Embellishments – $20.00

WHEW…that is IT – well almost….

please look below to see the ADD ON OFFERINGS to the super popular product I made up last year!


The Shipping Charges follows the Add-Ons! If you are totally confused and/or have a question, please email me and I will get back to you!



Add on Product Share #1 – Stock Swatches on a Ring – $10.00 

(THESE WILL HAVE THE NEW IN-COLORS…see below for Add on #2)

This item below is like opening a BAG of POTATO CHIPS…..Once you start eating….you cannot stop! This IS a lifesaver! I had so many people order these last year and when I said – are you sure that you just want 1 as the shipping is the same for 2.…and I received comments of….no….one is great!

Then just about a week later I received another email from them saying…darn, I should have ordered 2!Once your friends see it…they just need one as well! I have many Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators order a BUNCH of these and then offer and/or sell them to customers that come to classes and workshops etc….it is a FAB-O tool for this little crafty thing we do!

I keep one at my work area…1 in my travel bag and also 1 in my pocket book so if I am somewhere and I see a DSP paper that I love….I can quickly reference to the Stampin’ Up! Colors so I know I can have a great match!

I have had many demonstrators order these as a “kick off” for the new catalog and we are having the wonderful color revamp….some have also just purchased a BUNCH at once and then have customers/downline reimburse them as if you order 10+ the SHIPPING IS FREE(if you purchase these in 10 +, I will adjust your shipping when I bill you)






Add on Product Share #2 – The 5 NEW IN-COLORS to add to your ring. – $1.50

(THESE ARE THE NEW IN-COLORS…to add to your existing Ring)

This is the BEAUTY of this product….whenever Stampin’ Up! adds new In Colors…you can easily add them to your existing ring! There is no confusion to the In Color year as it is printed right below the color name!

The NEW In Colors are Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purply Posy.


Shipping Charges:

This part of HAPPY MAIL is always a pain 😥 but I do my very best to offer you the BEST OPTIONS that the dear old Post Office gives to me…..like many things, the prices on Priority Mail have gone up this year but it is the best way to ship….very fast and very efficient.

If at all possible that I can use bubble mailers and it is not over the 13 oz. limit, I will use them… I guess you can say…the moral of this postal story is….I AM VERY FAIR in making sure that you get the best possible rates with the best service…as I know how important it is! (just ask my ladies at the Post Office….I drive them crazy but I shower them with goodies)

If you order #2 & #3 together, I will try my best to fit it in one envelope….but I cannot promise that – I will communicate and/or reimburse you if shipping is less than I expected!


SHARE #1 – Swatch Books only – $5.00 (Order 5 sets or more…shipping is FREE – I have many SUD’s order them for Club Members/Customers as they truly are a fabulous too)

SHARE #2  – DSP Papers  –  $7.65 (That is the USPS Priority Mail fee)

SHARE #3 – DSP Paper Collections – $5.00

SHARES #4 or 5 – These all should be able to go First Class Mail – $5.00 (could be less)

SHARE –  I WANT IT ALL – $12.65 ( It is super hard for me to tell how much I can get in the Priority Mail Box…so this is covering for 2 packages if I need to split the mailing up and again…I will make adjustments to you bill if necessary)

Add on #1 – The Shipping is $5.00 and if you get (2) Swatch Rings….they both will ship for $5.00 (Orders of 10 or more Cardstock Rings  – shipping is FREE)

Add on #2 – These will came in a regular envelope so the shipping is included in the $1.50 fee. ***If you need multiples of swatch add ons….please reference the quantity that you will need and then I can get to you with the shipping!


It is super hard to figure out the whole shipping game….so please reach out to me if you need clarity. I honestly do my best to make sure that you are getting the fairest price for the shipping.




PLEASE CLICK HERE (this should be just an email to me back) and put in the subject line – NEW CATALOG PRODUCT SHARE so I can SPOT IT and let me know what share numbers you are interested in.

As the request of Shares come in, I will email you back just to confirm that I received your request…remember, these products do not become available until June 4th. 

Please put in your email request for shares your NAME & ADDRESS (pretty please) so all I need to do is copy and paste it to get labels ready before June 1st rolls around! I will start billing via Pay Pal on Sunday May 25th.

If you would rather pay me by check, please email me and we can work it out! I have several customers that prefer writing a check…so please feel free to reach out.



I thank you for hanging in there with me today…I just really like to make sure that I am offering you the best options at the fairest price.

This is a poster that should be at my house…..when I am working on orders….

BIG hugs to each and everyone of you and I thank you for your PRODUCT SHARE order! It is a labor of love but a love that does bring me joy in doing…I guess it’s that “happy place” for me in making you happy!

Scoop on John…he is going to have to have “his wing worked on”….or should I say that yep, he needs to have Rotator Cuff Surgery on his left shoulder and YEP…he is left handed!

The good news is that he can wait until we get back from Greece but he really needs to baby it as much as he can….he has several tears but it is simply not going to heal on its own without surgery!

What can we say but…OH WELL….I will put my Nurse Hat on and treat him like a King! (as he really is….just ask Millie and Alyece)



I am striking off of my TO DO list (slowly but surely)….but this Product Share is always a big one to pull together! Tomorrow’s mission….to go through my IN BOX of Emails……YIKES – we all know haw that piles up!

Have a wonderful evening and here is to a GREAT WEEKEND!!!! Don’t forget to double check the retired list….when they are gone – they are GONE!
