The New Catalog is Out!

The 2015 a*muse studio catalog is full of some very different styles -- we managed to keep some of the great sets from the monthly collections but otherwise there are no new flowers or butterflies, if you can believe it. You can see for yourself:

2015 a*muse Catalog

One of my absolute favorite new items is the landscape die set:
Landscape die set, with a sentiment from Essential Sentiments, too.
With stitched clouds, a left and right hill as well as a curve -- all with stitching - I can see this being a very versatile set! This weekend I needed a card for my mother-in-law and couldn't wait to brighter her day with fluffy white clouds! Next I'll have to pick up the Our Town and Our Town, Too sets to add to those hills!

Happy die

I used "older" sets on the other card I needed this weekend, a card for a 68 year-old who is full of fun and whimsy! I love that more word dies have been added with this catalog -- from hi to celebrate and even hooray, boo and eek to mix and match with your favorite sentiment (or not -- sometimes a single word is exactly enough!)

A new catalog is a great time to join A*Muse, and there is a special for June and July that makes it even better.

The new Basic Starter Kit will include 3 Studio Samplers Sets plus all of the business supplies a new Consultant needs to get her business started. The regular cost of our Basic Starter Kit is $99.

Last Chance on Retiring Sets!

As the month winds down, so does the sale on retiring sets! Some have already sold out, including Brushstrokes, Charming Gardeners, Enjoy the Ride and Pretty Peonies 2, but some of the other really good ones are still in stock as I type! Here, again, is the list. If you see something you want, better grab it!

I got a tiny glimpse of some of the sets that will be out in the new catalog, and it is a really great mix of styles, with some new cardstock designs and dies thrown in (I already have a favorite -- the Landscape Dies set -- and I haven't seen much yet! This is something I didn't even know I was holding my breath for!) The new catalog launches June 1st!

Until then, happy stamping!

2015 Retiring Products Progressive Sale
It's that time again where we must say goodbye to some of our beloved stamp sets and other products to make room in the new catalog.  Saying goodbye to some of these set is tough, but the exciting news is that the new A Muse Studio Annual Catalog & Idea Book is just around the corner!

Based on last year's success, we're offering another progressive sale on retiring products (click to see the list here).  There will be three discount periods:
April 15 to 30..................... save 25%
May 1 to 15..................... save 35%
May 16 to 31.................... save 50%
Remember that this is a "while supplies last" opportunity -- so if any of your "must have" items are on the list grab them while you can, some set will sell out quickly!

No other coupons or discounts apply to the Retiring Products sale.

BUT, don't forget the April Collection is still around until the end of the month!

And the Birthday Join Promo is still on, as well!

It really is hard to lose some of my very favorites, but I can hope that ALL of the March Collection makes it in the new catalog -- here is a card I made for a friend who recently received her library degree and accepted a professional position at the Texas State Library.

The Fiesta Colors from this year's catalog really brighten up this congratulations card!
Happiness Blooms from the February Collection -- another one I'm hoping joins the new catalog in June!
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope to be able to share some sneak peaks of the new catalog next month, but in the meantime get anything you had your heart set on from the retiring list before they are gone!

Happy Stamping!

April is here -- and so is the new Monthly Collection!

This month's collection is a fun celebration of birthdays -- since in just a few weeks we celebrate the "birth" of A Muse Studio 14 years ago! You can see the entire collection here! I love how versatile some of this month's sets are -- ice cream and summer go hand in messy, dripping hand! There is also a new mini-album in neon pink stripes, and washi tape in stripes, polka dot and plaid.

There is so much to LOVE about A Muse Studio! And, now is a great time to join. This is truly a ground-floor opportunity - there are still a few states where we do not yet have Consultants!! During the months of April & May, we are celebrating our 14th anniversary by continuing our $49 Basic Starter Kit special (save $50 off the regular price!) and $99 Deluxe Starter Kit (over $250 in product value!) with an extra gift for everyone. Every new Consultant that between April 1st and May 31st will receive a FREE stamp set of their choice.

Now for the sad news -- at least for me. The release of a new Monthly Collection means the March collection is no longer available! I am really hoping ALL of the March sets make it to the new catalog this summer, because one month was definitely NOT long enough for everyone that needs these stamps to get their hands on them!

I am going to get a LOT of use out of these sets and matching dies -- they are so perfect to match with other sets.

Because of the shipping delays caused by the longshoreman disputes there will not be a monthly collection in May as we anticipated, however the annual catalog arrives in June, and that's just around the corner!

Be sure to check out the April collection for some "sweet" sets, and I'll be back with some sneak peeks from the new catalog as soon as they are shared (and probably more from the March sets -- I just can't help myself!). In the meantime,

Happy stamping!

March Collection -- Spring is Definitely in the Air!

The March Collection has been released, and it's fabulous! View the PDF here to see for yourself! This collection includes 4 stamp sets with matching dies, 2 sizes of washi tape, 4X4 mini albums, Vintage Blossom paper straws and a paper collection called Spring Blossom! In fact, the whole collection is fresh and Spring-like. I put my order in last night, so I hope I'll have some of my own things to show you soon, but in the meantime here are a few from the A Muse Studio blog (

Wonderful Windows paired with a sentiment from Be Brave and Floral Blossom washi tape

Wonderful Windows -- a great set to use with or without the matching die set!

Mason Jars -- the matching die set makes this set so easy to use! Paired with another sentiment from Be Brave.

Love and Thanks set, of course with a matching die to add dimension!

The combination of the Love and Thanks set with the Mason Jars makes a lovely Spring bouquet!
In addition, there is a great special for joining the company this month, called "Today is Your Day," which allows you to jump on board for just $49! Spread the word... there's never been a more exciting time to join A Muse Studio! Our new Monthly Collections program provides exciting new products every month, National Conference is just over two months away, and a new catalog is just around the corner! The cost of the Basic Starter Kit for the month of March is only $49. The Basic Kit includes the exclusive A Muse Studio Starter Kit samplers sets, plus all the business supplies a new Consultant needs to get her business started AND for the month of March only, you'll be able to choose two free stamp sets from the March Collection... all for only $49! Or, go deluxe for only $99.

I know it is cold in many areas of the U.S. today, so I hope you have enjoyed this little bit of Spring. 

Happy Stamping!

A New Month, a New Collection! The February Collection is here!

The February Collection is now available and it is really fun!
View/Download the entire February Collection PDF now!
The matching die and choice of greetings makes Happiness Blooms a MUST HAVE set!

This month ONLY you also have the opportunity to order from the January Collection thru Valentine's Day as we transition to this new way of doing things. The January Collection PDF is available here!

I used the candy wrapper from the January Collection to make little treats for my co-workers -- it was easy to do all 65(!) because the die is scored in the perfect spots for a piece of chocolate! The greeting and hearts are from the With Love set
I hope your February is off to a good start! I had some friends over to craft this weekend and in addition to getting the co-worker gifts finished, I was able to make cards for 2 upcoming birthdays and my cousin's wedding (this Friday!)
The butterflies are from Stampin Up! The paper and ink is Violeta -- part of the A Muse Fiesta color collection

More Violeta and a butterfly left over from the project above!

And finally, Violeta paper and ink (with leaves in Margarita) with a sentiment from Hooray it's your Day and the largest flower from Pretty Peonies (again -- the matching die makes this work!!)

I also got a Valentine's card done - but I won't post it until its been opened by my husband!

I'm planning for an end of month ALL DAY crop -- so getting organized for scrapbooking is next on my agenda!

Happy Stamping!
