Retired Stamps List

Yes, it's that time of year again where we have to say goodbye to some very loved stamp sets. Yes, it is a little earlier then normal but that's because the new catalogue will be coming out earlier too! The list is huge this year and it means that I have to say goodbye to some serious faves but that doesn't mean I'm going to get rid of them all. There is no way you could ever tell me to stop using Baroque Motifs. My all time favourite.

Take a look and make sure you've got what you wanted. Click here to see the list.
Email me with your orders. Remember items are while supplies last.

BTW...The accessories list will be out on April 25st.

Club Cards For Multiple Birthdays

April and October seem to be the months that I always need a ton of birthday cards. This April is no different then any other. In fact I need 3 cards for this weekend alone. Luckily I remembered that I still had 2 cards that we made at club a few months ago. I really like how these cards turned out so I knew I would keep them for someone special. A sister and a s-i-l! Another lucky fact is that one of them is a red person and the other a blue person. I really must have been thinking of them subconsciously.
I created the background by cutting the dsp into 1/2" strips and then for the first card I shifted the strips up and down a little.
For this second card I flipped over every other strip for the opposite side of the dsp. Doesn't it look neat?! I also have every intention of using the cutoff from the Framelit for another card. It was just too neat looking to throw into the recycle bin. It's been on my desk staring at me. I will get to it soon.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Let's Get This Party Started...Again!

Alright we are back at it with Stampin' Celebration. It was just the motivation I needed to get back here. I've been in my craft room a few times to play but just haven't gotten anything posted. Well it's high time I made an appearance.
Stampin' Celebration is kicking things off with a Spring theme. We have got some super inspiration photos for you. We have changed things a bit though. We will be having a challenge only once a month, but you will have almost a whole month to play. Also we have set things up like a blog hop and we even acquired a few more people on our design team. We hope you like our new setup. Leave us a comment on Stampin' Celebration or here and let us know what you think.
Here is something I've been playing with alot lately that has the whole Spring theme in mind. It all has to do with aluminum flashing. I heard they were making garden stakes at the SU! leadership convention but I never got to see any but I knew I had to try and figure it out. Well I figured it out alright and then some. Here are my first ones.
For the most part I used the Beautiful Butterfly Die, Scallop Circle die, Flower Folds Die and Fun Flowers Die. I also tried pretty much every embossing folder that SU! makes. What fun :) To jazz it up a bit and also to attach layers I used Rhinestone brads. The Crop-A-Dile punches through this stuff with real ease. I used 12 gauge wire, bought at our local craft store, as the hangers.

So I had to make a card using this. Plus why not add a little gift bag. Here I used the Top Note Die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. You probably came from Krystal's blog and next in line after me is Rochelle. Hope you have fun hopping! See you next time!
