New Stuff

Mr Brown (the UPS guy) brought me fun stuff on Friday. It's all from the new holiday mini. I can't wait to sit down and play with it all. There's the new Designer Fabric in Candy Cane (# 121715- $9.95). You get all 3 designs and the size is larger than standard fat quarters (fabric for quilting). Each pack of fabric also has a booklet with instructions to make the covered book plus 4 other ideas (while supplies last). Look at the new buttons too. Aren't they cute? You get all these in one package. 4 each of 4 colors and 3 styles. 48 in all. Mine are in Candy Cane to match the fabric (# 121718- $8.95)

The Holiday Mini starts on September 1st. You can order from me or from my website.

Get a jump on your holiday cards. My holiday card class starts on October 10th (pick styles-order materials)

News About the Punch Caddies

This just in from Stampin' Up!

August 20, 2010
As you know, the Punch Caddy is listed in the new Idea Book & Catalog (pg. 200) as “Coming soon.” We are disappointed to report, however, that due to serious production and quality issues with the manufacturer, we will not be able to offer the Punch Caddies at all. And because the manufacturer will likely not be able to meet our quality standards for the Punch Caddy in the future, we do not have any plans to offer a revised or equivalent product in its place.

As the situation unfolded, we consulted with demonstrators to see what they thought and we received some comforting words from Mary Polcin. “I’d much rather know now that there is a problem than let them get into my customers’ hands,” Mary said. “I am very glad that Stampin’ Up! is dealing with this now rather than later.”

I agree with Mary. I'd much rather the caddies not be available than to have them fall apart after you spent good money on them. I hope SU will be able to resolve the issue soon. In the meantime, I guess we'll just have to keep storing them in drawers, shoeboxes and hanging shoe holders.

Also these items are not here yet but should be in soon.

Watercolor Wonder Crayons: All Watercolor Wonder Crayons were delayed due to a relocation of the supplier. We are happy to announce that these are now under production, and we will let you know when they are available for order.
Rub-Ons: We are still experiencing quality problems with our new Rub-Ons, and the following Rub-Ons are not currently available:
119250 - Bday Party
119249 - Holly & Jolly
