Melissa's Memories & More

FLOWERS FOR EVERY SEASON MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK on page 155 in Stampin' Up's annual catalog.  $11.00 for 50 double-sided cards (2 each of 25 designs).  The pictures below were sent to me by Melissa Burroughs to show me what a great productive weekend she had!  The comments are hers......


I jumped into my Memories and More pack last night, with the coordinating in-color card bases. SO MUCH FUN!!!  Over 30 cards set-up. Can’t wait to share the final results!!!!!  


Two easy short days - 36 cards (2 of each design). Used the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More card pack and coordinating In-Color card bases. Added some of my own card stock bases, a lot of goodies from my ribbon and bling drawer. Voila!  Love this memories and more pack, everyone will find something they like in here!!!

Janie's Easy Stampin' Up! Cards

Jane Dodge sent me this picture earlier this week.  She used the WHALE OF A TIME SUITE on page 94 in Stampin' Up!'s new annual catalog.  The suite includes the stamp set and dies (bundled on page 96), designer series paper (6" x 6" package), sheer ribbon, sequins and an embossing folder.  However ~ as Janie points out in her comments below ~ all that you really need for some fabulous cards are the paper, the embossing folder and sequins.  Thanks for sharing Janie!

Wow! What a great set.  Please share with any of your club members who are working with a limited budget.  Only 3 must haves:

  1. DSP for backgrounds and for ocean critters cut from DSP
  1. Embossing folder (use for the two cards in the background)
  1. Sequin mix for this stamp set

I put a little glitter from my stash on the jellyfish.

I got a real deal with these 3 products with hardly making a dent in my supplies.

Stampin' Up's Zany Zebras

Yesterday afternoon I combined the PLAYING WITH PATTERNS 6" x 6" DSP with my new, and very fun, stamp set ZANY ZEBRAS!  The paper has all sorts of different patterns along with the following colors ~ Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Whisper White.  You can find the cute zebras on page 104 in the new catalog!  You can also find them in Stampin' Up!'s Beginner Brochure ~ it's full of simple stamping ideas!  I would love to send one to you ~ EMAIL ME with your name and address and I will send you some fun mail!  HAPPY THURSDAY!


Project Sheet Tuesday

What could be better than a Project Sheet Tuesday AND Chocolate???  This cute stamp set, NOTHING'S BETTER THAN, has so many possibilities and they are all cute!  You can find it on page 91 in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog ~ so many choices with this one!  And, don't you love the color?  It is one of the new In Colors this year ~ Magenta Madness!  I am doing an IN COLOR CLUB if you would like to join just let me know.  What is it?  I will post more information about it tomorrow. Enjoy the chocolate!

Blended flower card BAND TOGETHER STAMP SET, page 121 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  You can still order the stamp set & the dies as a BUNDLE ~ for about 48 hours.  Both the stamp set and the dies (DETAILED BANDS DIES) will transfer to the new catty on Wednesday but they will not be bundled so they will cost 10% more than they do today and tomorrow!

I sent out my second May Newsletter last night.  Let me know if you didn't receive it.  You can sign up on the right side of my blog ~ Join My Mailing List ~ information about my next Card Class is in the newsletter.  Hope to see you there!

Janie's card......BOTANICAL TAGS

Isn't this a pretty card?  So soft and gentle.  Janie Dodge created it and emailed it to me a couple of days ago.  She used the BOTANICAL TAGS dies on page 191 in the annual catalog.  The dies are retiring and she said that she got them on the CLEARANCE RACK.  The card is a NOTECARD  ~ page 168 in Whisper White and Very Vanilla ~ Janie is the QUEEN OF NOTECARDS.  I think she buys a new package every time she comes to Stamp Club ~ she LOVES writing SHORT notes!  Thanks for sharing, Janie!  Lovely!



Cow's it going?

It's retiring.  This cute stamp set, OVER THE MOON, has been loads of fun to use and if you have it I know you will want to keep it in your collection.  The cows are retiring in a few days so I thought I would share some samples with you for some Saturday fun.  Enjoy!

Beautiful You

Thank you, Marion ~ I LOVE this card.  Marion is a dear friend and a demonstrator on my team.  She sent me this card a couple of days ago ~ with a nice note.  She definitely made my day ~ it's amazing what a card can do!  The stamp set, BEAUTIFUL YOU (page 114 in the annual catalog) is RETIRING.  Oh no!  I will definitely miss this set.  I like the images but I LOVE the sayings!  Two examples ~

"LIVE with passion.  LAUGH out loud.  LOVE deeply."

"LIFE may not be the party we had hoped for but while we're here we might as well DANCE."

Marion's Card

Marion used the WOVEN THREADS DSP (page 165 AC) and the SEASIDE SPRAY Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  The Designer Series Paper is retiring but the ribbon is staying!  Yea!  Don't you love the pretty dress that matches the designer series paper ~ great fussy cutting job!  If you like this set, and don't have it in your collection, you may want to make an online order TODAY!
