Tonight was my Create with Chris Live on FaceBook Night.  I shared a sneak peek at the Bird Ballad Suite and a couple cards.  This is one of my favorite suites in the new catalog.  I am sad some of my favorite items are retiring from the catalog, and seeing the things they are being replaced with makes me a little less sad.

The retirement lists have arrived, and your links to the lists are here! Please note that the areas highlighted in gray represent stamps that are retiring in their current form. These stamps will be available in the new catalog, but presented differently (i.e., if they are wood mount and/or photopolymer now, they will be available in the new catalog in cling)

Place your order before these items disappear for good!

All the rumors are true. Stampin' Up! is discontinuing our remarkable Trimmer and the Big Shot, along with the accessories for each of these tools. This was announced yesterday and already the Big Shot Standard Cutting Plates are on low inventory and the Trimmer Scoring Blades, as well as the Mats are sold out. You really do need to order before these items totally disappear forever from our product line.

To help you deal with the loss of these amazing items, I am offering them to you for FREE! When you place an order from my website or with me for any of these discontinuing items that totals $50 or more, and use the hostess code: RP2UDVQT, I will put your name into a drawing for a brand new Trimmer; place a minimum $100 order with me, or on my website, using hostess code RP2UDVQT, and I will enter your name into a drawing for a brand new Big Shot!

PLUS when you order using this hostess code, I will email you a tutorial packet filled with thirteen awesome card/project tutorials. This packet is filled with designs from the Talented Tutorial Team and I'm sure you will love it!

You must place your order before noon on April 15th. I will draw a winner for both of these items during my 7:00 p.m. FB LIve Create with Chris, which you can watch at: Rubber Room Ramblings, Stampin' Up! with Chris Kolly.

This is our first Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop, and I am so excited you are joining us.   When you see the above logo at the bottom of my post, click on any of them to take you to the next blog on the hop.

For my card I used the wonderful Lemon Lime card stock and amazing ribbon.  My favorite embossing folder in the Occasions Catalog is this Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It gives my card so much texture and personality.  I also used the new Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set. When you purchase them together, you get a 10% discount.  And that great vine framelit comes from the Well Written Framelits Dies~~I love it!

Use any link below, and enjoy the rest of your  Hop!

Here is the "before video". 

This week the Rubber Room will be experiencing "Team Up to Clean Up"! I am so grateful for my team, and they are always there for me! A couple weeks ago I posted some before and after pictures of the Rubber Room (a/k/a my stamping studio). These before and after pictures caused a huge mess (see the video below) that needed lots of work. My team volunteered to help~~how cool! We made tremendous progress last night, and I am so excited to see what happens tonight and tomorrow also. Stay tuned for the "after" video for awesome results of "Team Up to Clean Up!" and my gorgeous remodeled Rubber Room!

Hugs from the Rubber Room
