5 Days Left!

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I went out with a friend for mani/pedis and then just spent the rest of the day relaxing with my family.

There are only five days left until the end of the catalog.

Here is a card I made using some retiring products:

This card was made using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and the Fox Builder Punch.  Neither of these items are retiring, but can you spot what is?  The designer series paper is from the Affectionately Yours pack, the main color on the card is Watermelon Wonder, and the Mint Macaron striped ribbon are all retiring.  

Here is a card featuring some new products that you can look forward to in the new catalog.

This card features products from the Birthday Memories product suite.  This fun suite includes a stamp set, framelits, designer series paper, and some ruffled ribbon, all with a vintage feel to it.

I hope you are having a good weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

6 Days Left - Petite Petals & Decorative Label Punch

Hello everyone!

There are only 6 days left of the current catalogs!

This is such a bittersweet time.  I am so sad to see some of my favorite items retiring into the sunset, but at the same time, I am so very excited to share the new catalog, and all of it's goodness with you!

Here is a card I made with three stamp sets I love, that are retiring.  To make this card, I started with a Thick Whisper White cardstock base.  I stamped the skid mark stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (what will I do without this set?!?!) in Basic Black.  I stamped my Petite Petals flowers in Watermelon Wonder and punched them out.  I laid out my flowers where I wanted them, so I would know where I wanted to stamp my leaves.  The leaves are from Affectionately Yours, and are stamped in Mint Macaron.  Once the leaves were stamped I attached my flowers with dimensionals, and added rhinestones to the centers.  (The Rhinestones are discontinued, but do not fret! They have been reconfigured, and will be available in the new catalog.)  My greeting is also from Affectionately Yours, and was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I am not sure how to accurately express the sadness I felt when I saw my coveted Hot Dog / Hamburger punch on the retiring list.  Surely, classes will never be the same.

As sad as it is for things to retire - this is a needed clearing, so that we can make way for new exciting things!

This fun card was made using some of the new products coming out in just 6 days!  The Colorful Seasons Product suite has things to offer to paper crafters of all types.  On this card you can see some of the images from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  This card also shows the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack.  I am so very excited about this new memory keeping system that Stampin' Up! is introducing.   The last new product featured on this card is the Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.  This new ribbon is so soft and pliable, and comes in three different colors.

Alright, that is all I have to share for today.  Come back tomorrow for another countdown post, full of sadness and joy all at the same time. :)  

Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Only 7 Days Left! - Oh, So Succulent

Hello everyone! 

I hope you are having a great week!  We have been having lovely weather here in the Seattle area.  Makes me just want to stay out side, all day long!  

Did you know there is only one week left for the Occasions, and the Annual Catalogs?!?!  I am so sad to see some of my favorite items leaving!

Today, I want to share with you a card I made featuring the Succulents product suite found on page 21 of the Occasions catalog.  The whole suite is retiring.  😢

My card uses the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set, the Succulent Framelits, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper. (That is unfortunately already sold out.)

The framelits, and the stamp set are both marked down because they are retiring, which makes them a *fantastic* deal right now!

Have you put in your retired list order yet??

Hope you have a great day!

Ribbon Of Courage

Hello everyone!  Today over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration we are all sharing sneak peeks from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  

Here is my card:

I made this card with the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set.  This stamp set is amazing!  It is a great resource for creating any kind of support cards.  From cancer & disease, to troop support  the ribbons in this set can be used for so many different things!

This card is for an upcoming fundraiser I am doing, that showcases this stamp set.

At the event, attendees will get to make 6 different projects.  There will also be lunch, raffles, and fun prizes too!  All profits from this event will benefit my Relay for Life team, and the American Cancer Society.  You can see more details, and register by clicking the picture above.
