Paper Pumpkin

Here is what I did with the kit and have so much left over for a wreath. Note, I love to alter each kit and here is my first altered project. I have added the canvass banners and used some new masksJune Paper Pumpkin pinwheel banneranner_2 June Paper Pumpkin pinwheel banneranner_5 June Paper Pumpkin pinwheel banneranner_4 June Paper Pumpkin pinwheel banneranner_6

2014-2015 New Catalog Sneak Peek # 5: Project Life

While most people in the know about Project Life use it  when creating scrapbook pages, I, on the other hand, have made so many scrapbooks, that my family has asked me to stop because they have run out of storage! Instead I use the different Project Life materials when making quick cards.

These materials are more versitile than you may think!

Expression Thinlits Retired but now on the Clearance Rack

Many viewers of this card have asked me if the expressions Thinlits were available. The were available in the holiday catalog last fall and are now on the clearance rack while supplies last. They have been reduced in price from $24.95 to $14.99. Thought you might  like to know! Using the neutrals of black and white is so striking and really makes a statement! Add a wonderful stamp like Blooming with Kindness, some ribbon and your card is essentially a beauty! Supplies needed: Continue reading Expression Thinlits Retired but now on the Clearance Rack

Pop’ N Cuts . . . Bye , Bye, Buy!

Sad to see these on the retired list. The Card Base Pop’N Cuts is going. It’s magnetic, so you can insert the magnetic Pop ‘n Cuts Dress Form Die inside this base to cut a fun pop-up card. Card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″. They are used with Extended Cutting Pads. The Dress form  Pop’ N Cuts is on its way out as well. Insert in the Card Base Pop ‘N Cuts Die to cut a fun pop-up card! Embellish the dress form with a dress you cut using the Dress Up Framelits Dies. The Dress Form insert: 3-1/4″ x 4-5/16″ should be used with the  Extended Cutting Pads.

Good Bye Betsy’s Blossoms, Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow!

I have loved so many of the great stampsets that are being retired. While parting is such sweet sorrow, I am looking forward to seeing what is coming in our next catalog that will be unveiled next Monday.


I will be attending a premiere with 2 other Demo Friends and can not wait to see what Stampin’ Up is adding to our new catalog. Until then however, here are a few cards made with now retiring stamps which we will soon be seeing no more. Do not forget that there is free shipping all this week!






Time to Say Good Bye . . .


Time for spring cleaning to make room for new stamps!

It’s sad to see some go, especially some of my favorite sets like Field Flowers and Woodgrain…but it just means new things are comin’!

This list means that it’s time for you to pull out a highlighter or post it notes, sit down with a cup of something good and highlight the things going away.   Keep a Post-It nearby to tag the possible sets you might want to get before they retire officially at the end of May.

Remember that this is the first year that stamps will be “while supplies last”.

The Retiring  promotion runs April 21st – June 4th    The new SU Annual Catalog starts June 2nd so we will have some overlap with just the retiring products.  That’s a great thing so you can compare the new catalog with the retiring list to be sure of what you need to purchase.

For the stampin’ accessories – those are the inks, papers, ribbons, designer papers, buttons, brads, etc….Some of those will be going and what doesn’t sell may end up on the clearance rack but we never really know for sure. Some of those are discounted already  – you will see those on the accessories list.

Retiring Lists  are here

free shipping box

For 5 days only, April 21-25th, everyone gets free shipping on ANY order! No minimum, No maximum.  ANY Retiring or current merchandise from any catalog or online promotion.
