Retired Accessory List Published

Hi Stamping Friends.  The retired accessory list is now available.

With the new catalog coming out June 1st, Stampin' Up! has to make room for the new and exciting products.  When you look at the retired accessories list, please note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.  Don’t worry, you can still use the existing pads.

The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images.
In addition, please note the following about the new catalog:
  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in color collections will continue to be offered)
  • 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
  • 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections
Supplies for accessories are limited.  Offer ends May 1st.  So, if there is anything you would like to order, feel free to email me, or if you want to order directly, click here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contactme.

Flowers for Mom

Hi Stamping Friends.  Whenever I look at the last time that I've posted, I'm amazed at how quickly times actually goes by.  I took a bit of time off from stamping just to regroup.  I guess we all need a little break now and then.  But, now I'm back!

My church asked me to make some Mother's Day cards for our Feed My Starving Children program.  People receive one of these cards when they make a donation towards meals for our annual FMSC packing event (which is held in September).  Last year we packed over 200,000 meals!  What a blessing.  Inside the card reads, "Happy Mother's Day, A gift of _______ meals has been given in your name To feed God's children through Feed My Starving Children."  If you'd like to make a donation, please email mail me for details.

This is the card I've made for this year.  I wanted to used a variety of colors -- peach parfait, rich razzleberry, real red, regal rose, and daffodil delight (not shown).    The flowers are made from the wing of the bird punch, and the stem is also from the bird punch.  The whisper white background is embossed using the stripes embossing folder, and the flower is woven into the lattice Bigz die, also cut from whisper white.  The brad is from the Summer Smooches brad, which will only be available until April 30th.  Then it's gone forever!

If you would like the brads or any other products in the sneak peak flyerclick here to order or email me.

Girl Scout Frame Project

This insides for the floating picture frame.

The Daisies

The rest of the Girl Scout group

Hi Stamping Friends.  Today was a crazy day.  There were 55 Girl Scouts that got together to make picture frames for Mother's Day gifts.  We had ONE HOUR to complete all 55.  We were done in 45 minutes.  I couldn't believe it!  I knew I was organized, and I guess better than I thought.

All of the squares were cut out, along with all the pieces.  There was no stamping, just a few little additions with markers (bird's eye, lady bug antenna, etc.).  They were 8 x 10 floating picture frames, with a 4 x 6 insert.  What fun.

If you are in the Milwaukee-Metro and would like to schedule a similar event, feel free to email me.
