Last Chance! Last Chance!
Can you believe we have completed another year with another GREAT catalog? It's sad to see this catalog come to a close but there are great things around the corner in the new catalog. I wanted to share a very fun card that I made in two different designs using products that retire TODAY.
Let me start by giving credit where credit is due. My demo friend Heather Summers is just a genius when it comes to crafting. She is the creator of this fun little card and you can find out how to make this card by visiting her post HERE.
For this card I started by using the beautiful Paisley Petals DSP (#122367). Isn't it fun to create with Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! because it all COORDINATES. Love this. For this card I used the Daring Adventure stamp set (#122602). This set is sticking around and I'm grateful. We made this card at my stamp club this month. VERY FUN!!
Now for my favorite Designer Series Paper that I have to say goodbye too. This makes me seriously SAD, SAD, SAD! I love the Beau Chateau Designer Series paper (#122357).
This card makes me feel like a frilly girl. It's just posh and frilly with the added lace and all the pink… and don't forget that ROOSTER. I've always loved roosters. My little rooster guy was punched with my Postage Stamp punch from the Beau Chateau Side Notes. The side notes have been very well loved all year long. I have really loved using them on all different types of projects. Not just cards. You can also see I cut one of the Side Notes in half and stuck them into the pockets of the card. You will also notice a little Simply Adorned Bauble (#121013). Get these TODAY. These are perfect for any project you want to add a little "BLING" too.
I did use two new products on this card. The new stamp that I used is called Layered Labels (#127072-Available June 1st). I also used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Die (#127003-Available June 1st).
So the million dollar question is… Do you have everything you want from this years catalog? If not, check out my Online Store and get the retired products while you still can. Don't forget my Online Rewards Program.
Have a FANTASTIC day!!
Good morning stampers! I have a fun card I wanted to share with you today. This is a fun fold card using the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598) and a Father's Day Card. This big day is just around the corner. Are you ready?
To make this card I started with a 4 1/2 x 12 piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock. I folded that in half and ran in through my Big Shot using the Labels Collection Framelit. It was the second to largest Die in this collection. Once through the Big Shot I scored the card once more 2" from the center score line so the card folded up to create an easel card. Once I had all the score lines it was time to stamp.
I used the Best Dad Ever stamp set (#120681). Such a great Father's Day set. I started by stamping the ties on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Early Espresso ink and then stamped them again using Marina Mist ink onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. I used my snips to cut out three ties and popped these up using Dimensionals. I used two of the sentiments and cut each of the words to fit my card. The large Scallop is from the Perfect Pennants Die Cut (#123126). I love this scallop and use it often. I layered a 2 1/2" Circle punch onto the Scallop and this is what helps to keep the card standing. Lastly, we have an awesome ribbon that I have barely used this year and decided to pull it out and start using it. WHY did I wait so long to use my Scallop Dots Ribbon? Silly. For this card, I just wanted to show the small scallop edge on the top half of the card. You will see it underneath the Crumb Cake cardstock.
I hope this inspires you to use this awesome set. If you don't have it yet there is still time to get it before Father's Day. You can find it HERE.
Have a GREAT WEEK!

Happy Memorial Day!~ What's left anyways…
It's been a fantastic weekend of celebrating our family both past and present who have served in the military. I am so grateful for each and every one of my family members and friends who serve our great country. Most of all I'm grateful for my Prince. Thank you Russ for all that you do for our family and our country.
I did not have much time to create this weekend but the time I wanted to make a page about Russ. Just makes me appreciate him more.
I changed up the Flag stamp brush in this layout so I wanted to show you exactly how I changed it. It's pretty simple once you see it in action and I hope this helps you when you are creating with My Digital Studio.

Happy Digital Day! I wanted to share a new Digital Layout I made using TWO new Digital Kits that I have fallen in love with. I used the new Days to Remember and Keep in Touch Digital Kits in our NEW catalog that will be available on June 1st. The catch to these new Digital Kits is that they can only be purchased if you are a hostess. That means you must have a qualified hostess order to purchase them. Both of these kits are FANTASTIC!! I love the envelopes (and there are many different ones) that you find in the Keep in Touch Digital Kit. The Designer Series Paper in the Days to Remember is AWESOME. So many to choose from.
Book a Summer Time workshop or Digital Class today and you could get one of these Digital Kits for FREE.
