This and That
Have you been checking out all the Retiring Stamp Sets and Accessories? Hundreds of items are leaving us, but that just means we'll be welcoming hundreds of new items! Some of the items that are being discontinued are even discounted as much as 60% off! Be sure to check things out so you don't miss out on these great deals.

One of the items being retired is the First Edition Designer Series Paper. This is one of my favorite papers, but I understand, so I'll have to say so long. One of my favorite techniques, is stamping my image on this paper. Here is a card using the Field Flowers 2-step Stamp Set, doing just that. Fortunately, this stamp set will be returning in the new catalog.

I've used the color combination of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Summer Starfruit. The cute little for you sentiment is from the A Round Array Stamp Set, that coordinates with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. This stamp set and punch are currently available as a bundle in the Spring is in the Air promotion. Buy both the stamp set and punch and save 15%.

Remember too, that now through May 30, you can earn an extra $30 in Hostess Dollars when you have a workshop that totals $350 (before shipping and tax). Or join my Team and add an additional $30 worth of product to your Starter Kit!

The Retiring List of Accessories and Stamp Sets has been announced. Some items are reduced as much as 60% off. Accessories are available only while supplies last, so don't hesitate! Grab your Wish List, your favorite beverage and head on over to my website to check things out.

I do have a card for you today. This one is pretty simple, and used the two fabulous Butterfly Punches. The larger Elegant Butterfly Punch is in the Annual Catalog, and the small Bitty Butterfly Punch can be found in the Spring Catalog.

The patterned paper is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack in the Spring Catalog. I'm addicted to these little guys! They are such a great value. You get 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double sided designs in each pad. They measure 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" inches, making them perfect for card fronts or mounting photos in your scrapbooks.

Hurry on over to my website to check out what's retiring, and don't forget, there are only a few more days to take advantage of these promotions.

Seriously Cute!

Paper Pumpkin Kit #2 arrived at my doorstep on Saturday! I was so excited because this month was a total surprise. I already knew what the first kit looked like before it arrived. When Stampin' Up! announced the new Paper Pumpkin program at Leadership in January, they surprised everyone there with a kit! A wonderful perk of being a Demonstrator. Everyone who signs up will receive the Welcome Kit as their first kit. This kit contains your free Clear Block that you will then use in the kits to follow.

These kits are fabulous! They arrive at your doorstep, or in your mailbox, once a month and contain everything you need to complete your project, except for adhesive. You'll receive pre-cut cardstock, stamps, ink, embellishments, and instructions on how to assemble your project. As a Demonstrator, I enjoy receiving a kit with the card stock already cut, the project designed, and the embellishments all packaged and ready for me to take just a few minutes and escape to create! Visit the My Paper Pumpkin website now to check it out.

When you decide that you too want a creative escape, and sign up to receive your Paper Pumpkin once a month, I will send you a Snail Adhesive free! Then you'll have everything you need to complete your project when it arrives.

*Be sure to choose me as your Demonstrator when signing up for your Paper Pumpkin to receive your free adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by ~

*Since I posted this, Stampin' Up! updated the Paper Pumpkin website. Now, when you click on my links, it will automatically choose me for your Demonstrator ~ easy peasy for you!

Honeycomb Love!

That could be my title for almost every product in the Stampin' Up! catalog. I do Love it all!

This Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder found in the Spring Catalog is definitely a favorite and a great way to add texture to any project. I embossed small pieces of Whisper White, Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit and Pool Party Card Stock, a good way to use up some scraps, and hand cut the layered honeycombs. The little bee from the Collage Curios Stamp Set, also found in the Spring Catalog, is the perfect addition. For a little more texture, I scattered some Basic Pearls around my card.

I used the Happiest Birthday sentiment from the Apothecary Art Stamp Set, but any sentiment would work for this card.

Don't forget about all the great promotions going on right now ~

  • This & That Bundle available through April 30, 2013
  • Sent With Love products available through April 30, 2013

Wild About Washi Tape!

Have you purchased the This & That Bundle yet? Oh my goodness ~ These products are fabulous! I have found a new Love ~ Washi Tape. I have seen it around, used on cards and scrapbook pages, but I had never actually used it myself.

Here are the 3 colors of tape that come in the bundle. It's kind of hard to see here, but the Crumb Cake stripe has numbers on it, and the Calypso Coral stripe has a honeycomb pattern on it. Very cute! This tape is self adhesive, and very forgiving, so if you need to adjust it a little, you can without messing it up.

The little Best Wishes stamp is from the Rotary Stamp included in the bundle. This stamp has 12 sayings, dates up to 2023 and sells individually for only $5.95!

Visit my online store to order your This & That Bundle before April 30 and get all five products for 15% off! These products will be available in the new 2013/2014 Annual Catalog, but not in the bundle, and not at a 15% discount.

Thanks for stopping by ~
