HUGE Convention Announcement!!

I have HUGE, EXCITING and FABULOUS news for you!! I was unable to go to Stampin' Up!'s annual convention last week in Salt Lake City this year, bummer I know, but there were a bunch of fabulous ladies who kept the "Breaking News" coming through e-mails. One of the news was so MOMENTOUS that it brought 6,000+ demonstrators to their feet cheering and clapping and some were even in tears. What can I say? We are passionate about our business!

So what is this huge announcement? Maybe you can tell from the bag...

Any ideas? Let me tell you! Stampin' Up! has just announced a brand new product line and partnership with another company! This is a product line that demonstrators have been asking for and the company listened! Stampin' Up! is partnering with Sizzix and selling the Big Shot die cut machine, Sizzix dies and EXCLUSIVE STAMPIN' UP! DIES.

What are "Die Cuts"? some of you may be asking. Die cuts are shapes, images, letters, words, etc. cut out of cardstock, DSP, foam, felt and other materials using a die (which cuts or embosses the image when put in a die-cutting machine). The Big Shot is a manual die-cutting machine that cuts over 50 different products including card stock, Designer Series paper, fabric, chipboard, plastic, and more. Stampin' Up! will be releasing dies that are SU! original artwork that coordinate with our stamps, papers, etc. along with Sizzix dies. If you have dies for other machines (i.e. the Cuttlebug) they are compatible with the Big Shot.

How can this help with your cardmaking, scrapbooking and other crafting needs? It can add simple embellishments for all your products. It will also make mass producing cards so much easier. Your scrapbook pages will take on new flair with die cuts. You can even use some of the die cuts to make 3-D projects in a snap. Come to my open house on August 17th and I will have a Big Shot for you to play with! Keep checking back on my blog as I will be making posts of all the great things the Big Shot can do for you!

Special thanks to Dianne Shiozaki and Patricia Weitzel for supplying the pictures for me to share with you!
