Retiring Products & New Catalog Announcements

The Retiring Lists are out!!

These products are available while supplies last or until June 3rd.

Please find both lists below:

Here are a few of my favorites that are going away! It's hard to narrow down the list.

Product Announcements:

Some of you may be aware or may not  so I wanted to confirm that the Paper Trimmer and Big Shot are retiring once supplies are depleted OR with the 19-20 Annual Catalog.

There are several reasons for this so I will share what I know:

Trimmer: Stampin' Up! experienced issues keeping the cutting blades in stock for the current trimmer.  They had hoped to have a new trimmer in time for the 19-20 catalog launch but it did not happen.  So, feel free to stock up on cutting blades now as the inventory is pretty low.

Paper Trimmer #126889

Big Shot: Stampin' Up! has decided to dissolve it's partnership with Sizzix.  Stampin' Up! will continue to carry framelits, thinlits and embossing folders.  Most have the Big Shot or something similar that uses these products.  A new machine is in the works. I do not have any other details yet so bare with us!  Stampin' Up! always tries to deliver the BEST products so I have no doubt the New machine will be awesome.  The Cutting Mats are already sold out but other Big Shot accessories are still available.

The Big Shot #143263

Cling Stamps: With the New 19-20 catalog, you may notice it looks a bit different.  Stampin' Up! will no longer carry Wood Mount Stamps, everything will be Cling.  However, some of the current Clear Mount Stamps are carrying over into New Catalog.  Stampin' Up! has informed us that they will deplete the inventory of Clear Mount Stamps through June 3, 2019.

Geared Up Garage Masculine Note Card Set & Holder

Hi Everyone,
I have the cutest note card and envelope holder for you today! It's also a masculine project and can be used as a gift or for that special man in your life to use himself!
This holder was created by a UK demo (thanks for sharing!) and I've tweaked the project for my own use.  I used the Geared Up Garage bundle for my note card set and paired it with the Best Route DSP from the annual catalog.  I somehow never ordered my Classic Garage DSP - GASP?!?!?!?  I could not find it today and then figured out it never my it into my order. Oops!  But, good news is the Best Route DSP is perfect for masculine cards and worked great!!  Check out today's video to see how to make the holder.  I will add some pics of my note cards below.
Isn't this cute...it almost looks like a suitcase.
Project Dimensions:
Blueberry Bushel Base - 9 3/4 x 7 1/4, score on short side at 1/2", 1", 6 1/4", and 6 3/4", score on long side at 3", 3 1/2", 7 1/4" and 7 3/4"
Blueberry Bushel Handle - 1/2" x 6" and I scored at 1/2" on each end
Best Route DSP - 5" x 1 3/4" and 5" x 2 1/4" (you could make this piece bigger if you want)
Here are my note cards! I was able to fit 4 with envelopes in holder but you could probably fit 5!

This one I added some Wink of Stella to wheels!! Made the chrome shine! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'm headed out for Stampin' Up!'s On Stage event so I look forward to sharing with you on my FB page later this week!

Humming Along Thank You

Hello! Happy Monday!
Today's project features the Humming Along stamp set.  I did a little water coloring which I haven't done in ages which was fun.  This color combo feels very springy too!  Soft Sea Foam, Flirty Flamingo and a little Calypso Coral.  Have you tried our Watercolor Paper? It's really lovely and absorbs the water beautifully and dries flat.  I even added a little Wink of Stella over the image to add a little sparkle.
This is a great set to color with...watercolor, blends, pencils oh my!

Piece of Cake Birthday

Happy Friday!!
Today I have a bright fun birthday cake using the Piece of Cake bundle!! I'm so so happy this is back in stock.  Today's colors are Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight!  So bright and beautiful.  I embossed the Coastal Cabana with our Simple Stripes Embossing folder.  On my original I used the embossed side but on video I used the debossed side - both are pretty!  I also added a little Wink of Stella to the flowers and bottom cake layer after I finished the video.

I hope you have a great weekend!!

You've Been on My Mind | Butterfly Gala

Happy Wednesday!
Today's project is a simple card but with a powerful sentiment - You've Been on My Mind. I love this sentiment because it can be used any time to just let someone know you've been thinking of them!! The Butterfly Gala bundle is available again so I hope you pick it up quickly if you don't already have it!! This is a MUST have set.  Especially if you picked up the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that was a part of Sale-A-Bration.  I actually feel like you also need Beauty Abounds because these 2 sets work beautifully together!! 

Check out today's video:

I hope you recreate these cards and send them to someone you've been thinking about!
Have a great day!

3D OnStage 2019 Swap

Hi Everyone,
As I prepare to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event next weekend, I decided to do some 3D swaps.  My regular card swaps are already done but wanted to do some more as I'm attending another event on Friday hosted by Stampin' Up! demos.  The dimensions for this swap were shared by a fellow demonstrator so I changed up the sentiment, ribbon etc to make it my own.  Aren't they the cutest?!  The are pretty tiny but these Reese's Easter Eggs I found fit perfectly! The Gingham Gala paper gives it that Easter feel but the sentiment is perfect for the audience I'm sharing with.  I made them in the Gingham Gala colors and paired the Organdy Sale-A-Bration combo pack with some Whisper White twine.

Here are the dimensions:
Base: 2 1/4 x 6, score on 6" side at 1/2, 1 3/4, 2 1/4, and 3 1/2.
I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch
Gingham Gala DSP Pieces: 1 - 2 1/8 x 2 1/8, 1 - 2 1/8 x 1 1/8, 1 - 2 1/8 x 3/8
Burnish all score lines, adhere the DSP to base and then die cut your oval. 
Use Tear & Tape on 1/2 piece to adhere box together.

Piece of Cake Wedding Card

Hello Everyone!
Today I have a beautiful wedding card for you.  The Piece of Cake bundle is available again so I hope you pop on over to my online store and pick it up before it goes on backorder again!  I love this bundle because it pairs with a punch and has lots of sentiment and images for many occasions.  I colored the image with my Stampin' Blends and added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to finish it off! I think the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is perfect for wedding cards too! So happy with the final result!

Check out today's video:
