New Stamp Sets!

Hi!  I have had a very busy month with no time to post!  I thought May was a busy month because of the end of the year projects in my class room, when I was teaching.  I found out, May is a busy month in general.  We have a couple of birthdays to celebrate in the family and of  course there is Mother's Day, grandchildren's activities, the start of hiking to mention a few activities.  All is welcome and enjoyed but the time is limited.

I have been getting ready for the new catalog.  I played with some new stamp sets last night, so I could share with you today.  You will be able to find these great sets in the new Stampin' Up catalog next week.  Yes, in a week you will have the opportunity to buy your items and have fun creating new ideas.



I am really looking forward to working with all the new stamp sets, paper and tools.  I will be keeping my customers busy.

If you are needing to order anything from the present catalog, you have one week to order!  Don't put off what you can do today!!  Click HERE, if you wish to order online.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you had a good day.

Paper Pumpkin and A Scrapbook Peek

May Paper Pumpkin kit; order by the 10th
I am pretty excited by the sneak peak they gave us for this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  I know many of you prefer the cards kits but there are some who do like the 3d items too!  Well it looks like this one will be cards! Look!

And it also looks like its geared towards men which is hard for some of us floral lovers to do.  I love the laser die-cuts they show here.  
If you want to get this months kit and are not a subscriber yet; be sure to order a one month kit or join Paper Pumpkin by May 10th. These kits in the mail are so fun to receive.  No planning or cutting; just relax and craft! The 10th is the last day you can get this kit.  To order
Go Here     

I finally finished the scrapbook!   Well almost, I actually decided to change the inside to make it possible for the customers to complete the book during class time.  I need to add some embellishments inside.  I will show the pages in the next post.

Cards: Using Retired Stamp Sets and Punches

Hello,
I am still working on the scrapbook I promise to post.  It is almost done.  Mother's Day celebration starts tomorrow for me, so I will not be able to complete the scrapbook till next Monday.  I thought I would share the cards below, since the stamp sets I used,  have a short time left with Stampin' Up.

This is the final month to purchase the stamp sets used below.  They are on the retired list.  As of June, Stampin' Up will no longer have them available for you to buy.

The stamp sets below are:  Bravo and Dotty Angles.
The one below is Bordering Blooms.

The first card is a masculine designed and the above card is a feminine designed.  Both card can be used for different occasions:  Job Promotion, Graduation, Teacher (completed the school year), Selling a House and for many more celebrations. 



In the card below I used embossing folders and punches.  All of these items are on the retired list.
Embossing Folders:  Chevron, Decorative Dots, Stylish Stripes, and Zig Zag.
The Punches:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1/2" Circle, 7/8" scallop, 1 1/4"scallop, 1 3/4" scallop,   2 3/8" Scallop, and the Bird Builder.  The little flower in the above card is also on the retire list:  Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.



I love the big paper flower I made.  I hope to make more to decorate above my craft room window for the summer.

I had an awesome Monday hiking with my husband (which is one reason I couldn't finish the scrapbook).  I wanted to share some of the pictures taken during the hike.  The Northwest is so beautiful.

WOW!!!    This is an awesome catalog.  Stampin' Up has some really fantastic new products for us to buy and create with.   Take a good look at the cover to see some new items.  The catalog will go live  "June 2016", so get ready for shopping and some fun stamping experiences. 


The picture below shows one type of transportation in Utah during the "On Stage Event".
After a long day of excitement, with the introduction of the new catalog and new products, my friend decided to ride all the way across the street to our hotel!!


In our class this last Thursday, we made a "Spring Sampler" project.  Below are two completed projects.  Thanks to all the girls for making it a fun day.  I always enjoy our stamping time together.  You are the best and I appreciate you.

Spring Sampler


This Spring Sampler is designed for the up coming class this Thursday, April 28th.  We will put it in a 12 x 12 frame.  I used the different flower stamp sets in the Spring Catalog to make this project, which would be a great gift for that someone special.

It has been a great spring season in the Northwest.  We have had lots of sunny days and warm weather.  My husband is especially happy, because hiking season has started.  Below are some pictures of our hike with the grandchildren last spring.







We are looking forward to more fun hikes this summer.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you like the project.

Purse and Cards for a Gift


I love Fridays because Saturdays and Sundays are relax days filled with family activities including grandchildren's sport events.  I did not post yesterday for a good reason.  It was grandma's duty day.  One of those days I get to help in a pinch.

The class project this week was making a Purse Card Holder with 6 note size cards.  This project can be a great gift for that someone special  for any event this next month:  Mother's Day, Birthday, Promotion, a Thank You and Graduation.




To make the purse you need a 6" x 11" piece of card stock, score at 5" & 6",  a 2" x 8 1/2" strip for the inside of the purse to hold the cards which is scored 1/2" & 1 1/2" on each end.  The flap is die cut using the largest circle framelits and scored at 1" & 2".  I punch a small hole on each end of the center section (between the 1" & 2") of the circle for the ribbon which I used for the handle and tied  knots on the inside.   Round the corners of the purse and decorate it. 
For the cards, I used the note cards that can be found on page 148 in the main catalog.  The price is very reasonable.  You get 20 cards and enevelopes for $6.00.
Thank You for visiting my blog.  Hope you have a great week-end.  Be sure to take some time to stamp and enjoy your creative ideas.
