Everything Eleanor and Everything Changes

Made with Stampin'UP! stamp set: Everything Eleanor
Everything! Thats what today's post has to cover . . . everything.
1. Today is the LAST DAY you'll be able
    to order any retiring product.
2. Tomorrow is the first day you can
     order from the NEW CATALOG
3. Stamp-a-Stack this weekend
4. and this card is made with a stamp set
    called Everything Eleanor

So, #1:  Have you looked at the retiring lists?  I really feel bad when someone comes a few months after the change and wants to order a stamp set thats retired. The lists are posted on my Stampin'UP! website. Call me if you have questions, but do it TODAY!  608.220.3450

#2: Do you have your new catalog yet?  Everyone who ordered $50 or more from me during the last calendar year will get one for free. Call me or email me to make arrangements to pick up yours. If you are coming to the Stamp-a-Stack this weekend you can get yours then. And of course, they will be available on-line as of June 1st.

#3: Are you signed up for the Stamp-a-Stack yet?  Your choice of date/time.  Sunday starting at 1PM or Monday starting at 6PM.  RSVP by email if you want to attend.

#4: And finally, how do you like the card? This was made with one of the new stamp sets called Everything Eleanor. I made this card as a trade for my demonstrator group which met last night. I mention that fact because I know a few gals from the group missed the meeting and I know they check my blog, so ladies, this is for you to see what you missed.

Does this card look slightly familiar?  I hope so. The green flourish on this card reminds me of Baroque Motifs (did you know that set was retiring?). How about that round doily like element under the flower - that reminded me of the Vintage Vogue stamp set (also retiring). And I love this color combination:  Always Artichoke, River Rock and Perfect Plum
Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Vintage Vogue stamp set. 
When I designed this card I wanted to see how well the new stamp sets replaced ones that were retiring. I ended up trying to copy this card which was posted in late February.  The older card was made with Vintage Vogue and while the imagery is not exactly the same as in the Everything Eleanor set it still makes a really beautiful card. I can't wait to get in more playtime with "Eleanor".

Happy Stamping

BTW: have you registered for the Stamp-a-Stack yet?
