Simply Sent

The catalogs are in, so I know that very shortly the low-down on all the new products in that catalog won't be quite as exciting. Well, unless you're like me and miss some things when you're lovingly paging through. So, hopefully you'll find these posts informative and interesting anyway.

Today I'm going to talk about the Simply Sent Products which now contain three different lines of products. Each one just as, if not more exciting than the last!!!

Simply Sent Card Elements: You may have noticed from the retiring accessories list that two of the card elements kits would still be available. The Rock Star and the Flower Power Card Elements are located on pgs. 166 & 167, respectively.

On page 167, we have a new Card Element Kit called Thankful Thinking (#114572). This is a very cute kit and coordinates with the new stamp set called - you guessed it - Thankful Thinking (sold separately). The kit includes: 2 sheets of Ruby Red, Kraft & Bashful Blue cardstock; 2 sheets of 8-1/2" x 11" single-sided patterned paper; 1 sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" Self-Adhesive Die Cuts; 4 feet of Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon; 5-1/2 feet of Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon; 3 Styled Silver Brads; 3 small Bashful Blue Buttons and 3 small Very Vanilla Buttons. All of this for only $15.95. That's a great deal for all of that product. There are also detailed instructions to create the three cards pictured on this page. I love anything with instructions so that I don't have to think!! Although, with this type of kit, the possibilities are endless. You can make a multitude of projects.

Simply Sent Card Elements & More: This is a brand new addition to our Simply Sent line of products located on pages 168 & 169. I'm convinced that you will just love these kits!! These are great for those times when you need that card like 10 minutes ago!!! I've had a few of those moments!!

Thanks x 2 Card Elements & More (#114594 $24.95) contains 8 printed, die-cut, and embossed cards (4 each of 2 designs); 8 Old Olive 5-1/8 x 3-5/8" Envelopes; an Old Olive Classic Stampin' Spot; 11 feet of Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and the Thanks x 2 double-mounted stamp set of 4.

2U Card Elements & More (#114579 $24.95) contains 8 Chocolate Chip Carousel Notes; 8 Chocolate Chip 6-1/8" x 6-1/8" Envelopes; 8 Tempting Turquoise Pre-Glittered Chipboard u's; 8 Chocolate Chip Laminate Chipboard 2's; 8 Tempting Turquoise Card Stock Die Cuts; 16 Very Vanilla Card Stock Die Cuts; a Ruby Red Classic Stampin' Spot; 2 yards of Riding Hood Red 1-1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (yes from the Holiday Mini Catalog!!) and the 2U double-mounted stamp set of 2.

It's About You Card Elements & More (#114585 $24.95) contains 8 Chipboard Flowers; 8 Whisper White 5-3/4" x 4-3/8" Envelopes; 1 sheet 6" x 8-1/2" Self-Adhesive Die Cuts; 8 Pieces 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Single-sided patterned paper; Assorted Card Stock pieces in Bashful Blue, Garden Green & Pumpkin Pie; a Garden Green Classic Stampin' Spot; 5/16" Chocolate Chip Brads (8); 10 feet of 5/8" twill tape and the It's About You double-mounted stamp set of 2.

All of the Card Elements & More Kits come packaged in a reusable Craft Keeper!! Isn't that great?? Once you've used everything in your kit you can use the Craft Keeper for your other projects. I think that just adds to the value of this product!

Simply Sent Card Kits: Sending Happy Thoughts Simply Sent Card Kit (p. 170) is still available from the Fall-Winter 2008 IB&C. There are two new kits in this line of products, both of which are located on page 171.

No One Like You (#114598 $42.95) contains the No One Like You stamp set of 5; a VersaMark Cube (I love these little things!!); a Bashful Blue Classic Stampin' Spot; a Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Spot; Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon; Kraft 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon; Pewter Vintage Brads; Small Bashful Blue Buttons; Card Stock, Textured Card Stock & Designer Series Paper Assortment; Stampin' Dimensionals; Mini Glue Dots; 12 Small Open-End Kraft Envelopes (yep, like the ones that are retiring!!) and detailed instructions. This kit creates 10 3" x 6"cards (5 each of 2 styles).

More Thoughts (#114605 $42.95) contains the More Thoughts stamp set of 4; a Rose Red Classic Stampin' Spot, an Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Spot; a Pretty in Pink Classic Stampin' Spot; On Board Chipboard pieces; Self-Adhesive Die Cuts; Stampin' Dimensionals; Mini Glue Dots; 14 Whisper White Envelopes; Card Stock Assortment and detailed instructions. This kit creates 12 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards (6 each of 2 styles).

Any of these Simply Sent Card Kits would make wonderful gifts, especially for new stampers. Everything needed to create these works of art is included in the kit and the packaging is just beautiful.

Wow, talking about everything that Stampin' Up! has been working on to bring us in this new catalog sure makes it even harder to wait until next week!! I know it'll be here before I know it, but I just don't like to wait. How about you??

Check back tomorrow for more of the scoop on the new products! Until then... happy stamping!!
