New Product Line from Stampin' Up! - Decor Elements

What is this new product? D├ęcor Elements is a line of wall art made from vinyl used to decorate your home. They are self-adhesive vinyl wall decorations that can be used on walls, windows, plates, vases, mirrors, picture frames - anything the vinyl will cling to!

This exciting new product will be available to customers on July 1st. I will have brochures available to my customers in about a week. Please email me if you would like one.

I have seen the brochure (available to demonstrators as an early sneak peek) and the images are FABULOUS! I can email you a copy of this brochure, but I cannot post it live here, per Stampin' Up! Demo Manual policy.

Playing catch up...

So I have been battling a terrible cold/cough for the last few days almost... bordering on bronchitis - yucky in the summer ;(

Unfortunately, I needed to cancel June Stamp Camp - I feel awful about it but with my move in the next 10 days I need to keep my focus on the bigger picture...moving! So since I haven't stamped much I am posting pictures lol...

This past weekend, I was out with my friend Donna on the way back from dinner at Texas de Brazil

We were walking back to PM over the Michigan Avenue bridge, the sun was setting and boats were out on the river and I thought picture time lol!!! I am pretty proud of these - they could be postcards ;)

Trump Tower

Better pictures of the new digs

So I was up in the new place last week with the painter and it was a really nice day so i decide to take better pixs of the place...

These are the views from my living room and the bedroom - they face south. If you click on the photos they will enlarge.

Put down the phone, turn off the computer, and break free from the 'e'!

eScape: Stampin'Up! is running a promotion to encourage people to get away from their computers and phones and emails (getting away from the "e" in your life) and actually take the opportunity to send a hand-made card to someone that you love. Or want to thank. Or want to let them know that you are thinking of them.

Remember the excitement of getting a handwritten card or note in your mailbox? Remember when you got letters in your mailbox instead of your inbox? The best way to receive a letter or card from someone is to send a letter or card to someone and hope that they write back!

On June 25, 2008, Stampin' Up! is taking the day to unplug and unwind, and reconnect on a personal level with friends and loved ones through handmade cards. And we invite you to eScape with us throughout the month of June!

Make someone's day and be part of the eScape promotion... send someone a card this month!

To celebrate this promotion, SU is offering the following bundle at 25% off:
