May Stamp Camp

Can you believe it's almost May!?  That means it's time for another stamp camp!  Wahoo!!
This month we will making 4 cards all in the same color theme of Red, Black and Gray and I will show you how to use those scraps that are laying around your craft space.  They are super cute and I will be showing how to create a unique "quilted" border as well as a weave using 1/2" and 1/4" strips.  These cards would be prefect for a graduation or Father's Day.  We will also be creating a fun girly card using paper piecing, another great technique to use up scraps!  The last card features the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge, Alphabet letter dies and paper from a Project Life paper pack.  I know you're just going to love these cards and find that they will be easy to reproduce in many color combinations!

I'm in Love with Paper Pumpkin!

Paper Pumpkin kits just celebrated it's second birthday and wanted to tell all of you how much I LOVE my Paper Pumpkin kits!  It's so much fun to get the little orange box in the mail box each month and I get super excited when it arrives!  I never know what's in the box and that's what makes it so much fun.  As a Stampin'Up! demonstrator I get to see a lot of things before the public with sneak peeks, product shares and catalog reveals, which is wonderful, but Paper Pumpkin gives me the chance to surprised!  Plus, I don't have to think about any thing, it's all done for me, which again as a demonstrator is wonderful! It comes with the ink, the stamps, card stock and anything else I might need to complete the project. Each kit is packed with goodies.  Kits vary, but most kits make a bunch of things.  Like 8-9 cards or back in June enough supplies to make 24 pinwheels!  But you don't have to stop there, use your imagination and come up with something else.  Sign up for Paper Pumpkin before May 10th to get your May surprise kit coming your way!

If you want to see April's Paper Pumpkin kit here!
Enjoy and if you have any questions, please contact me!

Saying Goodbye



It’s almost time to say goodbye to retiring products from the 2014–2015 annual catalog. Before we say goodbye to these amazing products, though, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order retiring products (some of them at discounts prices up to 50 percent off retail) before they’re gone for good. Retiring products will only be available until June 2 (or while supplies last), so be sure to get your orders in early! Shop here! Think click on shop in the upper right corner!  If you would like a list of the retiring products to print, please email me.

Saying Goodbye

I can hardly believe it's time for the Stampin'Up! retiring list already, but it's true. Are you ready to see which of your favorites will be leaving forever and which one's will stay?  I'm sure I am.  I'm always excited to see all the fabulous new products, but it's always a little hard to say goodbye to my favorite too.  To get mentally prepared, I'm letting you know that the Retired List will post on April 21st.  Start thinking about any stamp sets you can't live without and be prepared to make a decision to purchase if they turn up on the retired list.  Items on the retired list tend to go fast!

Together at Last!

Created by Stacey Cogswell

As many of you know, I love stamping, but I have another love too.  It's Zentangle!  So when Stampin'Up! came out with the Blended Bloom stamp, I knew my two loves could be together at last.  The flower image is perfect to fill in with tangles of all kinds, but for this one I just added thick lines on each of the petals.  The black and white DSP is from the Stacked with Love paper stack (#137779) and the greeting is from the Photopolymer stamp set Better Than Email (#140463) Hope this inspires you to try something a little different with your stamps.
