Stampin' Up! News and Bellas--LONG POST!

I tried warning you--there's a LOT of Bella action going on around here! If you're in my stamping circle, make sure you let me know if you'd like to add anything to the Bella order going in this weekend. You can check out all of the products at Now, I'm a little disappointed in myself because I forgot to incorporate DaDots in the class the other night. I showed them to everyone a while back and some of you said you might be interested in ordering them at some point so take a look HERE. Of course I will be ordering some more of the Bubble Gum Glitter--the larger ones are calling my name.

I'm going to hold out on ordering too much since the new Stampin' Up! catalog is coming soon and I'm in LOVE with what I've been seeing so far. I'll be honest--wasn't too excited about the preview catty but now that some of the catalog peeks have been leaked, I'm really liking the new ribbons and papers...oh, it just looks so yummy! Oh, and HELLO--ALL of the stamp sets will be die-cut! YEAH! There were rumors that only the new sets would be die-cut, but it was announced at Convention today that ALL sets would be die-cut--thank you Stampin' Up! Don't be so quick to throw away your Craft and Rubber Scissors because I'm sure there may be times you'll want to trim away some excess rubber. Okay, in other news...Stampin' Up!'s founder Shelli Gardner is starting a BLOG! It will be live this Monday. I'm sure she's sick of the fact that Kristina Werner gets more attention than her...KIDDING! Sidenote: It was reported that Kristina Werner and Shelli Garder walked out of an elevator together and some woman went wild over seeing Kristina in person. Apparently, she kinda missed the fact that it was Shelli Gardner standing next to her as well---oops! Okay, so Shelli is also introducing a special collection of products which will be introduced in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Some of the cool Christmas sets that were photographed on various blogs are not in the regular catalog so it appears that the Holiday Mini is going to be out of this world! I'm really excited to see what Shelli has in store for all of us. She promised a BIG product announcement tomorrow so I can't wait to learn what that's all about!
Okay, now on to the Bellas...
Michelle jumped on the Bella Bandwagon and she order a few Bellas that I didn't have and Tinkabella was one of them. I'm glad I never got rid of my Mini Mates set because those little sentiments come in very handy!
I had to pair Veggiebella with this sentiment from My Favorite Things. I've seen a bunch of people do the same thing on Splitcoast so ya, it wasn't an original idea or anything! I'm not too crazy about this color combo though I've used it before. You'd think I'd just scratch it off my color combo list, but it is again. Oh well, Bellas can pretty much make any color combo look good so I guess I'm off the hook :-)

I'm going to be running around quite a bit tomorrow, but I'll post as soon as I hear what this new product announcement is from SU! Have a great start to your weekend!

I like the red, blue, and kraft combo. Even my husband has commented on that combination and he normally notices nothing.

I am doing the die cut dance. Can you see me? I am one happy stamper. Woo hoo!

Yup, true story about Shelli, Kristina, and the elevator! It was me who reported that story about one of my convention buddies! I almost peed myself when I heard what happened!
