A Peek of the New Catalog

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. 

Don't forget to check out the Retire List!  There are many items we have to say Farewell.     Discounts up to 50% off . To place an online order just click Here.

I am really enjoying our Spring Season this year.  Beautiful flowers with vivid colors all around us, reminds me of the many blessings we are given.

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.

If you wish to order any supplies or stamp sets please click Here to place your online order.  Don't forget to check out the retired list to buy before the item are gone. 

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.
