I thought you might enjoy a few stamped samples using these wonderful new sets, but first a few updates!!
A Muse Studio National Conference was held this past weekend in Pigeon Forge, TN, home of the great smokey mountains! I was so excited to attend and brought home some fun news to share with you! Here are the highlights:
Bigger Monthly Collections coming | A Muse Studio realizes that YOU LOVE NEW. Who doesn’t, right?! It’s always fun to see what’s new and rolling all of that NEW product out in one big annual catalog is great, but within a few weeks, it’s all old news and then its another year until the same excitement builds again. Instead of rolling out a new annual catty with lots of new stamp sets at once, A|S is going to continue the Monthly Collections making them bigger and better than ever, every month! There will always be something fresh, new and fun to look forward to in the A Muse Studio Monthly Collections. The August Collection will feature some wonderful new Halloween stamps, dies, sequins, card stock and some new colored Wink of Stella pens in purple and green…yippee!
New Dye-based inks | We know you love our pigment inks for their smooth, chalky texture and great coverage, but we also know how much you love techniques that incorporate dye-based inks. A|S is rolling out brand new dye-based ink in all of the colors of our current palette and adding two new colors every month. Each month within the monthly collection, two of our current colors will roll out as dye-based ink pads and two new colors will also be revealed. You can build your collection slowly and add these great new ink pads to your stash! First up— lily pad, a beautiful emerald green to add to the color palette and creamcicle, a gorgeous peach!
We’ve Gone Digital! | We’ve received consistent positive feedback on the digital brochures for the Monthly Collections! With so much inspiration on the internet between Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube, product catalogs are not the main source of inspiration anymore. Catalogs, although they are nice to hold, cost a ton of money to create, print and then ship, and they are practically obsolete before the ink is dry on the paper! Our annual catalog is set to be revealed on Monday, July 18th and it will be completely digital, absolutely free and ready for you to download onto your computer, kindle, iPad, cell phone or any other digital device for reference! You can go to my website on Monday, July 18th to download your free copy!
Incidentally, there will now be TWO annual catalogs—one that incorporates all of the stamps and dies from the past year, including many prior Monthly Collection sets that made the cut, as well as a catalog incorporating all of the essentials – card stock, inks, ribbons, sequins, tools, etc. to make your crafting fun! These digital catalogs have a nice index to help you find what you’re looking for in a flash!
No Quarterly Sales Quotas! | Yes, you read that correctly, A Muse Studio is doing away with the whole quarterly sales quota requirement. Starting August 1, 2016, you can purchase the kit and sign on with A Muse Studio as a Creative Consultant, enjoy all of the perks of that designation (20% discount on product, free training and support, access to the back office where you can connect with fun, crafty ladies who share your interest, the idea gallery for consultants, the ability to make A Muse Studio as much or as little as you want it to be in your life, early looks at all of the Monthly Collections (a month in advance of customers), plus the option of attending the annual A|S National Conference and Creative Retreat!) with none of the pressure to sell! If you decide to buy some products yourself and sell to a few friends and your total annual sales reaches $900 or more in sales volume before your first anniversary with A|S, your renewal fee is waived, otherwise just pay $49 to renew and continue to enjoy the benefits of being a consultant! Its that simple! Who would like to join me on this fun, crafty adventure?!?!
I am actively building a team and would love to have you along! Please contact me in the comments for more information on becoming a consultant with A Muse Studio!! It could truly be one of the best decisions you make for yourself.
And now that I have updated you on all the great news from A Muse, I want to share a few cards I made using the Monthly Collection stamp sets for July, 2016…
Above, I paired the new RHINO Alphabet with the Birthday Balloons stamp set for this graphic, simple celebration card.
In this card above, I combined the Hey Cupcake stamp set with a sentiment and flower from the new Sweet Summertime set.
These two samples above and below pair sentiments from current sets (above: Happy Thoughts and below: Bee Happy)
with the new Bouquet of Love set… one of my favorites from this collection!!
This card above is also from the new Bouquet of Love set, using the single flowers + a sentiment from Essential Sentiments Too…
This final card duo I made using the new Seashells Remind Us set. The card on the right pairs one of the sentiments with a stamp set of feathers that has actually discontinued.
Such a fun collection of stamp sets with so much versatility. I hope these cards have inspired your creativity today!
