New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, Weekly Deals and an Update

Hello!  I'm glad to be back in my Studio, albeit just blogging, not creating.  The upside to spending a couple of weeks visiting my out-of-state family? Priceless memories and fun.  The downside?  THE LAUNDRY.  We are also in the throes of soccer times three and prepping for the first day of school times three.  A lot to do housekeeping-wise, so it simply means that my fingers remain sadly ink-free (and will for a few more days).  We have more family visiting this weekend from out-of-state! Woot!

In the meantime, I'm going to give you a link for the new 2014 Holiday Catalog (it's delicious).  I'm also providing an abbreviated link to the Weekly Deals...

{HERE} is the link to the Weekly Deals, available through Monday, September (!) 1st, 2014.

Ta Daaaaa!

I hope you have a great weekend and that you've had a great summer.  Be on the look-out for your hard copy of the Holiday Catalog (if you're a Studio-Sara Select Customer).

Heading Home Today and {New} Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!

Well, the adventure is nearly over.  We've enjoyed some really great family time exploring Montana, Wyoming and Colorado.  It's time to load the car (the poor, poor, filthy car) and make our way home. We say good-bye to my sister and her beautiful family today, but we are not sad, as we get to see them again super-soon.  Happy face!

So while I enjoy the gorgeous drive from Wyoming into Montana, here are the new Weekly Deals for you to enjoy.  Next time I talk to you, I'll have stamped.  Can't wait!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals and Another Colorado Update

I'm enjoying another sunny and beautiful Colorado morning!  I'm seated near the river and the red tinge at the top of the picture is the morning sunlight playing through the leaves.  It's going to be clear and warm up here, with a high of 76 in the mountains (we're at 7,522 feet in elevation).  We are in our last few days at home, though, which is always tough.

The flipside to leaving my hometown is getting home to my studio!  I'm anxious to get inky again -- it's been a few weeks since I was able to do so and I've missed it.  The new 2014 Holiday Catalog will be available for viewing soon and I can't wait to share some of the fun things from that...

Here are this week's Weekly Deals.  The Fancy Fan TIEF is one of my favorites to use and I'm excited to see a few more Big Shot goodies up for grabs which I don't have yet.

Oh, How I Love My Stampin' Up! Big Shot! {Promotion and Video!}

My Big Shot gets used for almost every project I make.  I use it to either die cut a shape or add texture.  I've had mine since Stampin' Up! first introduced them many moons ago and I've made hundreds, if not thousands of projects with it (truly -- I send 150 Christmas cards/year!).

For the month of August, Stampin' Up! is offering a free bundle of framelits and stamps with every Big Shot purchased.  There are five possibilities and here they are:

Big Shot
Bright & Beautiful Stars Clear-Mount Bundle
Bright & Beautiful Stars Wood-Mount Bundle
Celebrating Chalk Talk Clear-Mount Bundle

Decorative Goodies Clear-Mount Bundle

A View from My Current Studio and new Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!

Every summer, my husband and I take our children on a Great American Wild West Roadtrip.  My family lives in Colorado and Wyoming, so we normally include a visit to a new-to-us national park with our visits with them.  In years past, we've enjoyed Dinosaur, Mesa Verde National Park, Yellowstone and this year we spent some time with my husband's parents, fly fishing on the Blackfoot River in Montana.  

As we enjoy our time in Rocky Mountain National Park (where my mom lives), this is my current "studio."  Love it?!  While I'm not able to stamp right now, you'd better believe I've picked up one of this week's Deals (guess which below).  I'm able to take questions, though, and I'm currently filling my fall schedule with classes and private workshops.  Drop me an email -- the reception is spotty, depending on where I am, but I will get back to you ASAP when I'm in coverage.

And now for this week's Weekly Deals...  Shop {HERE} for some great inky and TIEF bargains (among others!).

Alphabet Press TIEF (130916), Originally $7.95, but on sale this week for $5.96!
