These are cards we'll be making at my May Stamp Camp using the Sweet Shop Suite.  So cute!

Retirement Time!

8:58 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
The Retirement Lists are out! Click on the button to the right to view them. You will see many ink pads and lot of card stock on the retiring list...don't worry - some of it is just being "repackaged" or "redesigned". First, 12x12 TEXTURED CARD STOCK WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED. If you want 12x12 Textured Card Stock in Stampin' Up! colors, please ORDER NOW while the colors you want are still available. The 12x12 Smooth Card Stock will still be offered, but only in select individual colors and collections (which I will not be able to list for you until May 8th at the earliest). Also, SIMPLY ADORNED and DEFINITELY DECORATIVE PRODUCTS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED. If you want any of these products, I once again urge you to ORDER IMMEDIATELY for the best selection. In addition, you will notice that ALL our ink pads are on the Retiring List. Here is some clarification on that: CRAFT INK PADS, CRAFT INK SPOTS, AND CRAFT INK REFILLS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED...with the exception of BLACK and WHITE Craft Ink Pads and Refills. CLASSIC INK PADS WILL RETURN---REDESIGNED---WITH A FIRM FOAM PAD...with the exception of all 2010-2012 In Colors (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride). Classic Ink Spots (1"x1" pads) will not be redesigned, they will still have the current linen pad. [Stay tuned...I will explain more about the upcoming NEW Firm Foam Classic Ink Pads in a separate post.] And one more bit of information, INDIVIDUAL STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS WILL BE OFFERED ONLY IN SELECT COLORS...though they will still be available in color collections packages (i.e., Neutrals, Regals, Brights, Subtles, In Colors). If you have any questions on these retiring products, please feel free to contact me.

Purse Addiction

9:16 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
I made my own alligator purse! As part of the Summer Smooches preview promotion, Stampin' Up! has a new purse die and it is so addicting! I was just going to make one but it was really easy and fun, before I knew it I had 5 with plans for many more. The "Alligator purse" was embossed and sponged with artichoke ink, but these others were just cut with designer paper and I added a few brads. These are a great favor size and can be used for lots of occasions. It's available til the end of the month. Check out my website for more details or to order. You'll be glad you did!
