the images aren't as sharp or detailed, they can be stretched, torn, or distorted. But now...we have a

Clear Mount Stamps from Stampin' Up!

These stamps are the SAME deeply etched rubber images that we are used to, but with a repositionable
foam backing. Now, if you are a die hard wood-mounted stamper, you don't have to worry, because
those aren't going away! Now you have a choice and you don't have to worry about the quality of the

Here are some of the features that I know you'll love:

        Storage - the stamps store easily in DVD cases with artwork on the front and the spine of the
  case to the inside of the case so you can easily size them up for the right clear block. (You can also
  purchase empty clear mount cases to create your own collection of favorites!)
        Mounting Blocks - There are 9 different sizes of blocks that you can purchase individually or in
  a bundle. These blocks have ergonomic grooves on all 4 sides for easy grip and you can use the
  large blocks to create collages or spell words with your alphabet sets.
        Stamps - the stamps are tightly die cut to make positioning easier and you can use optional
  image labels on the backs of the stamps so that you'll see the images through the blocks. There's no
  difference in how you'll clean the stamps or the blocks - just use your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin'
        Price - probably the BEST thing about this new stamp option is the price! The price for the Clear
  Mount Stamps will be LOWER than regular wood mount stamps! Woo Hoo!

Remember these new stamps are not clear, they are made with the same high-quality rubber, but the
blocks you mount them on are clear so that you can "clearly" see where you are stamping them!

I'm SO excited to pick up a few of these and play with them! I'll be getting some this month and using
them in workshops starting in January. Make sure you schedule a date with me so that you can see
these new products!

   New ‘WOW’ Product Publications Launching in January 2010!!!

   January is a busy month! (And you thought December was busy.) Starting January 5, we're launching these three
   new product publications:

    2010 Occasions Mini Catalog              Sale-A-Bration Brochure                 Definitely Decorative Catalog

            New Punch Style:
       The new style offers low-profile, rectangular punch body allowing for easier stacking and storing. Punches
   lock shut for easier storage and transport. Dual labels on top and end allow for easy identification and selection
   when stored. Available in three sizes: small, medium, and extra-large New punches allow for larger punched
   images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use. Extra-large punch images also allow for
   two-step designs.Corner punches allow you to punch a corner design along the inside edges of a page, not just
   corners. Punches have larger, whole-hand handle design providing better leverage for easier use.
            New Clear Mount Stamps:
       Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure,
   Stampin_Up! now offers their exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear mount option.
   The new clear-mount stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image
   quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in
   repositionable clear-mount stamps.

                                                               NEW!!! Online Hostess Club
                                      I am going to be starting a new online hostess club come February 1 . This will be my
                                         first club, but I am very excited about it! Hostess clubs are awesome and are done
                                        almost completely online (with an occasional phone call). The supplies arrive right at
                                      your door, you don't have to worry about meetings. It is just really low key and a bunch
                                                                                  of fun.

                                                                 Here is how the Hostess Club works:
                                        I am looking for 10 members who are willing to spend $15.00 (plus shipping and tax)
                                       each month for 10 months. Each month's order will amount to $150 which qualifies for
                                        hostess benefits of a free hostess level 1 stamp set and $15.00 in free SU! products.
                                          Every month we will rotate the hostess who gets the free hostess goodies so that
                                      everyone gets them once. Everyone will receive a FREE catalog and free mini catalogs
                                       during their club!! During your month, you can get even greater hostess benefits if you
Stampin’ Up! Gift Certificates!                                        have your other friends order.
                                          ** If you feel that $15 is too small of an amount, sign up for 2 spots and then your
  Gift Certificates make great         commitment is $30 each month and you get TWO sets of hostess benefits!! You can
                                         sign up for as many spots as you want. If you already know you are going to spend
 gifts! Available in any amount,
                                                   more than $15 per month, you might as well get the benefits for it.
     it allows the stampers,           Each month, I will have the entire combined order shipped to me, and I will send your
scrapper, crafter, quilter, etc. to      part of the order to you! I also plan to host mini online crops each month so that we
   pick out exactly what they                                   can all chat and get to know one another.

                                                            doing this, you join what we call a "Stamp Club".
                                                               Benefits given to Stamp Club members:
                                      ** Members receive a FREE copy of the current Idea Book & Catalog, along witho ther
                                              miscellaneous promotional catalogs throughout the 10-month membership!
                                       ** Members receive 2 Free classes throughout their membership and are invited each
                                      month to attend one of our in-home classes for half-price. This is an added bonus for
                                          joining the Stamp Club. If you can‟t make a class, simply phone or email us your
                                                                              order… simple!
                                      ** Members receive hostess benefits one of the months they are a club member. This
                                         doesn't mean you have to "host" anything, rather you simply receive the benefits a
                                      hostess would receive from a workshop. You receive the basic hostess benefits, which
                                             is a free level 1 hostess stamp set or reward and $15 in FREE Stampin' Up!
                                        merchandise. You don't have to invite anyone to a workshop or anything! This is just
                                         an added bonus you receive for becoming a Stamp Club member. We do offer the
                                      option to club members that if they would like to increase their hostess benefits during
                                        their month as "hostess", they can "host" their own workshop with friends and collect

                          NEW!!! Monthly Crop Club
 Monthly Crop Night will be held on the first Saturday of the month (unless otherwise
stated). A group of us will get together for fun, laughs and scrapping! A monthly class
 will consist of either a double page 12” x 12” layout or two single 12” x 12” layouts.

    Snacks and drinks will be served and the cost to for the months supplies is $5.

This is a great time for you to get out and socialize with some great ladies. You will be
able to test out some neat Stampin' UP products and ask questions about them. If you
                   would like to come to crop night, send me an email!

  Crop Night is by RSVP invitation only because spaces at the tables are limited so I
          need to know how many spots are full so I can plan accordingly.

 To get an idea of some of the Stampin' UP products you can use while at my crops,
                   please visit my blog: Picture Perfect Creations
