I was on vacation and I didn't plan ahead so well with the catalog starting. Well, I'm back ready to roll now.
The catalog is live! Have you seen it? It's loaded with a hold bunch of wonderfulness.
Do you want to hear some more good news?
- The Stamparatus is now available for purchase! Yes, no more reservations necessary. It's available for any and all to sorder. The Stamparatus is great when making multiple cards. It's also great if you don't get a good stamp the first time around. Re-ink the stamp and stamp again. Click here to watch a video about the Stamparatus that Stampin' Up! has made.
- Another bit of good news is that the Stampin' Blends will be available after June 15! People have been waiting to get their hands on these Blends. If you like coloring, they are perfect for you. Click here for a video Stampin' Up! made for the Blends.
Later this afternoon, I'm planning on going in my stamp room to clean up, organize and play with my new products. I had been stressing about vacation and getting ready so it feels like forever since I've been down there. The Color Revamp stamp pads are calling my name.
If you should have any questions about the new catalog, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm here to help.
On a personal note, my vacation was great. We went to see Alyssa who is doing a semester aboad in Frankfurt, Germany. Frankfurt was surprisingly very modern. During WWII, it was bombed and there was a fire so not many buildings survived. We never could have navigated the trains and buses if it were not for her. I couldn't believe she figured all that out in 3 months. We also did some overnight trips to Prague, Czech Republic and Salzburg, Austria. We would have loved to spend more time in both cities and would definately consider going back.
Prague is so interesting. We made our way to the Castle and was so glad we did. It's on a hill looking down on the city. The view alone made the trip worthwhile. The first picture was looking down on the city. The second was looking at the Castle. Just notice how long it is! If you ever get there, you also have to go to the City Center. It's full of shops, restaurants and a whole lot of excitement.
Did you know the Sound of Music was filmed in Salzburg, Austria? The girls and I were kind of geeking out because we saw where some of the scenes were filmed. There were actual tours people could take based around the movie. If we had more time in the city, we would have considered it. But as it was, we had just over 24 hours and had to make the most of it. Mozart was also born in Salzburg. We visited a museum about his life. I'm not a huge fan of classical music, but it was interesting. Another must to do in Salzburg is the Cable Car Untersberg. It's outside of the city, but public transportation can take you there. The cable car takes you over 1700 meters into the mountains. Once up there, you can walk around and enjoy the panoramic sights of the surrounding cities. It was an incredible experience.
The sad thing about vacations is that they come to an end. Tomorrow is back to work.
Have a good week!
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
