2013-2014 Catalog Product Shares are Here!

The 2013 - 2104 Catalog has started and it is full to the brim with new stuff. Here are the product shares that I am offering.

If you are interested, email me at [email protected] and let me know. 


Designer Series Paper Share

There are 13 packages of DSP including 2 packages of Specialty DSP and if you were to order them all it would cost you almost $200.00.


What I am going to do is order them all and then cut the 12x12 packages into 6x6 pieces and you will get a square of each design of each pack. The squares won't be identical because of the way the patterns are printed on the DSP, but you will still get an awesome assortment to create with.


As a Bonus you will get a sample of the new Coaster Board


The cost for the 2013 - 2014 Catalog DSP  share will be $28 per share and that includes priority mailing*


Core'dinations Cardstock Share

What I am going to do is order them all (Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, In Color 2012 - 2014 and In Color 2013 - 2015) and then cut the 12x12 packages into 6x6 pieces and you will get a square of each color. 


The cost for the Core-dinations Cardstock Share will be $15.00 per share and that includes priority mailing*


New Ribbon Share

I am offering the new style ribbons only. 

Ribbon share

This share will be 1 yard of the 3/4" Chevron Ribbon in each of the 12 colors (Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, and Wisteria Wonder) and 1 yard of the 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim in the 5 new In Colors (Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, and Strawberry Slush).


The cost for Ribbon share is $24.00 per share and that includes priority mailing*



Added!!! Designer Series Paper Stacks Share


What I am going to do is order them all (Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, In Color 2012 - 2014 and In Color 2013 - 2015) and then cut the 12x12 packages into 6x6 pieces and you will get a square of each color. These have some fun new designs, polka dots, chevrons, fancy fan-ish and another fun design.


The cost for the Designer Series Paper Stacks Share will be $22.00 per share and that includes priority mailing*


The turn around for the shares will probably be a couple weeks or so at the most, as I will need to order them, get them in, cut and packaged, and off to the PO.  I will let you know if there are any slow downs with back orders or anything.
 *These packages will only be available to be shipped within the United States.

If you are interested in ordering any of the shares let me know, you can pay with a check or I can send you the Paypal link.
Hugs, Di

Mystery Hostess Online Workshop - Ends June 8

In case you are like me and you can not wait till June to order out of the new catalog, I thought I would start my June Mystery Hostess Online Workshop a day early. The catalog goes live today....not till noon though so that gives you some time to work on your wish list.

Be the Hostess with the Mostess - Know the Code


We had so much fun last month with my Online Mystery Hostess Workshop, and Lenny was able to pick $130.00 in free hostess dollars, plus she got 2 items at half off! Wowza!

With Stampin' Up!'s announcement  of the new Hostess Code, we can now "pool" Online Orders together (place them individually, orders will ship directly to you - within the US only, but use the same hostess code). When smaller orders are put in together, the larger order qualifies for HOSTESS BENEFITS.
That means FREE STAMPS (or other products) I can SHARE with YOU!
So let's get started with May's Online Mystery Hostess Workshop!
How do you get to be part of the Mystery Hostess Workshop?
Simply use the Hostess Code below and place a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping) in my online store by 11:00 pm on Saturday June 8.

Important: To be part of the Online Mystery Hostess Workshop, once you add your first item to your shopping bag the hostess code must be entered just below the Special Offers section and it should say Diana Gibbs as the Hostess.
Once all the orders are placed, on Sunday morning June 9, I will draw ONE name to get hostess benefits on the entire order! I will email the winner to get your choices.
Your Hostess Code is: 27MB3P4A
Ready - Set - GO!! Start placing your orders now!... Remember, the deadline for this
event is 11:00 pm on Saturday June 8.
P.S. Look what is available!!!!!!!!!
It's the new BFF for your Big Shot  #130658.

Big hugs and thanks for stopping in.

Family Tools

Free 2013 - 2014 Catalog

Punch Class 1 - 2013 012 copy

OMG! May 31 is almost here! You know what that means right? We can start ordering out of the new catalog!!! I have a big list, and I am so glad I have a bunch of free stamp sets that I have earned to keep my costs I can order more embellishments, etc. I will also be doing Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Shares so watch for that ok?

I watched the new series Family Tools and it was so cute. It has Leah Remini from the King of Queens, and it also has Edi Gathegi and he was on Twilight and JK Simmons the Farmers Insurance commercial guy and he looks so buff. Did you ever see the movie "New in Town"? he was on it and he sure looked way heavier. If you have not seen that movie you need to watch it, it is hilarious.

Here is another fun critter from my punch class, I found this cute lion by Tara (Murphy) Bourgoin of Craft Project Central, thanks Tara!  After I punched tons of the modern label punch I think they used the Blossom punch...but oh well, he is still cute.

Here is the finished page the girls made at class. It also uses the Blossom Petals Builder punch #121808 and it is retiring.

Punch Class 1 - 2013 011 copy

Well I am headed to bed, I fell asleep today sitting on the couch and that is not good.

Have an awesome Thursday and thanks so much for stopping in.

Free 2013 - 2014 Catalog

Punch Class 1 - 2013 016 copy
Oh wait, this is not Spock, that is August's punch class...maybe.  Too funny when the girls were putting the little elf together they said he looked like Spock.

I found this cute elf online and it was cased from Niki Toll & Cindee Wilkinson, thanks girls!  I love making the faces cause when you first start they look so funny until you get it totally done, although depending on what angle you glue the eyelids and curve the mouth you can make an elf who looks like he has been drinking too much eggnog...if you catch my drift.

Punch Class 1 - 2013 015 copy
Here is the page they made at class. Run don't walk to get the ornament punch as it is retiring. #119847

Oh and if you have not watched The not read any further cause I have a spoiler alert.

I am so over the top happy for everyone they saved tonight. This is exactly who I wanted. I mean Judith will do good no matter what and I was not a fan of Sarah and in fact the song she sang tonight was horrible and I love that song from Twilight!!!!

I am so glad that all of Blake's team is safe and Adam went from a team of three to a team of one...eek! Although it is the country singer that is left, so that tells you something eh? It is cutting it down close though, can't wait to see next week.

Well this old chickaroo is off to bed.

Have an awesome Wednesday (that seems like Tuesday) and thanks for stopping in.


Free 2013 - 2014 Catalog

I did laundry all day today and never once did I find one of these...

...isn't my little niece Daphne adorable?

This one might be one of my favorites...from the ones I got today from Courtney...

3G-06X52ddDFJgnvhTvmAIx2UgkhqTAJM56eMkU3-i8's tiring to be a baby...

...this is cute too, it is like she is saying "Daddy, I might have made a stinky...unless that was you?"

Finally The Voice, watching it on the real night.  Here is my two cents...

Judith: Holy Moly, it was like Thunder Dome and her hair was sky high.  I didn't know the song but man she puts on a show.

Holly: She sang Band Perry, one of my favorite groups and she rocked the song and was amazing.

So Adam with his striped shirt reminded me of Elvis Presley and the jailhouse rock.

Swon Brothers: they sang an Eagles song and did amazing.

Sasha: She did an Usher song and I didn't know it and she seemed to be screaming alot to be heard over all the music and stuff

Sarah: Didn't know the song and I like her the least from the Top 8.

Michelle: She did amazing, and I love she is who she is and she doesn't try to be anyone else, even though after she sang there was a commercial on TV with someone trying to look like her kinda.

Speaking of commercials, I can hardly wait for Micheal J Fox's new show.

Danielle: So young and so talented, and I love that Judd "Grandpa" song.

Amber: She has a beautiful voice and she did an Adele song and knocked it out of the ballpark.

I've gotta go vote...I'm voting for all of Blake's singers.

Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
