Thank you hexagons

The Cupcakes & Carousels paper is my favorite paper of the entire 2017 year! The colors go together so perfectly. I wish this had been in the large catalog, so I could have enjoyed it longer, but the paper stack is still available on the retiring list, thank goodness! But only for two more days (through May 31st), or while supplies last.

The sentiment is from an old Paper Pumpkin kit. And I’m sorry, but the hexagon punch is retired and no longer available, boohoo!

ALSO……

Don’t forget the Eastern Palace Bundles! There are 2 days left to order one of these awesome bundles and receive a free item! Individual items in the Eastern Palace suite will be available with the release of the 2017-2018 annual catalog on June 1st, BUT you will not get any free items if ordered after 5/31. You’ll get a new stamp set, Designer Series Paper pack, 3 of the new In Color ink pads, and MORE! Please click on the Eastern Palace Suite link for all of the information.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey there! As you know, Stampin’ Up! is currently in the midst of retiring some of the old items in the current catalog, to make room for new ones. As an SU! demonstrator, we have the fun opportunity to pre-order some of the new items, which is great! Occasionally, Stampin’ Up! offers YOU, their customers, to get some of those upcoming goodies early as well. Drumroll, please!

Let me introduce you to the Eastern Palace Bundles! There are 2 bundles that you can order ahead of the new 2017-2018 catalog, when it goes live June 1st. Beginning May 1st, you can order one, or both! PLUS, in each bundle you will also receive a free item or items! Which free item, will depend on the bundle you purchase – and one of them is brand new. These bundles will only be available during this promotion. Individual items in the Eastern Palace suite will be available with the release of the 2017-2018 annual catalog on June 1st, but you will not get any free items if ordered after 5/31. You’ll get a new stamp set, Designer Series Paper pack, 3 of the new In Color ink pads, and MORE! Please click on the Eastern Palace Suite link for all of the information.

  • The starter bundle (147196, $60.50), shown above, includes FREE Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.  Does NOT include the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.
  • The premier bundle (shown below, 147207, $103.50) includes FREE Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes & NEW Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock (8.5 x 11).  Includes Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.
  • BOTH bundles include THREE of the NEW 2017-2019 In Color Ink Pads, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.

For the easy Thank You card at the top of this post, I used the new Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set, new Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, new Eastern Medallion Thinlits, new Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, and new Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ Pad – all from the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle, item #147207 – available 5/1-5/31 only. I also used Calypso Coral card stock, as well as the By the Shore DSP (retiring). Click here for the retiring list!

Folks with sunshine

Isn’t it true, though? People want to be around other people who bring sunshine everywhere they go! I absolutely believe that even when we don’t feel well, or are having a bad day, we can still let the light shine within us, if we try. This has been true in my own life. There is something to be said for, “Fake it ’til you make it”. We feel better if we can find the positive in the midst of our trials, whether they be big or small. That’s not to say we can’t be sad and show it. I think you understand what I’m saying here.

Anyway, this card uses a couple of retiring items, as well as already retired ones. But you could swap out different papers, sentiments, colors, etc!

I will miss this paper

I love the copper foil accents on this paper so much! For whatever reason, I really only started using it recently. But I do love it. If you like this paper, you’ll need to act fast, as it is on the retiring list! It’s on sale, too, so please hurry if you are interested in purchasing it!

I used the same layout as this card – I just love to showcase pretty patterned paper, and this layout is perfect for that. I used a retired embosslit for the copper foil butterfly – it just adds the perfect little touch!

Bear Hugs x2

I have been wanting to make cards with this adorable stamp set since I got it, when the catalog first came out. I finally did. I sent the birthday card to my son, whose birthday is today! I also decided to make an extra with Hello sentiment. Both sentiments are from the recently retired Any Occasion stamp set during Sale-A-Bration. It works so perfectly with the bears!

If you like these cute bear stamps and dies, they are on the retiring list, and the dies are on SALE! Get them while you can!

My son is over 1,500 miles away from home at school. He comes home the end of April for the summer, but in the meantime, he has a birthday, and there is also Easter in the same week. I made him a birthday card, which I’ll post later on, and some Easter love you see here.

I made a few sour cream containers, and added candy in each one. I used the retired Nursery Suite Specialty DSP, since there were bunnies on it! I also sent him a gift card to one of his favorite places and put it in this gift card holder. The sentiment is from retired Easter Blossoms stamp set. I realized I don’t have any Easter stamp sets, other than this. Looks like I need to remedy that!

You can find a link to the directions on making this super easy gift card holder, using one of the Medium Envelopes, on a previous post here.

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

The retiring list comes out today! Check back for more info (I don’t have the exact link yet). You should be able to view it though by clicking on the link below. Be sure to order quickly, as many items sell out very fast! Especially all items in the 2015-2017 In Colors. I have added those links below, which will take you straight to my online store, so you can order, if you so desire. Please keep in mind, that once they sell out, they are NOT coming back.
