Happy Mother's Day!

Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Moms! I had an AWESOME weekend with my family. And today I crafted in my jammies all day and here is what I worked on.

Sweet Treat Snap Box


I've seen this super cute treat box popping up all over Pinterest so I decided to make one. It was pretty simple and adorable! To make this box I used the #122334 Simply Scored Tool, #125598 Labels Framelits, #133787 Itty Bitty Accent Pack, and the #137783 Birthday Bash DSP. The stamp set is from the December Paper Pumpkin Kit.


I also made some additional cards for friends of the Mother's Day Card I cased last week. I simply changed the colors but used the same layout.

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Happy Saturday! Mother's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to show you an absolutely beautiful card I CASED from Inge Groot for the special Mom's in my life :o).

Mother's Day Card


This card has many layers but it is very simple to make. And the colors work so well together (bermuda bay, pool party and black).


 To bling or not to bling...here I added a few sequins.
  


 And here I added this fun #137910 Sequin Trim to the flower.

The supplies you will need to make this card are #130102  Deco Label Framelits, #137416 Ornate Tag Topper Punch, #133787 Itty Bitty Accents punches, #133322 Petite Petals Punch, #137779 Stacked with Love DSP and #130917 Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder (which is on the retired list). 

TIP: To keep the sequins in place I added a little dab of Tombo Glue to the ends of the thread.
 
Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up's New Catalog

2015 Catty 

One of the many advantages of being a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator is that we can preview the new catalog a month early and order early. I've seen it and it is FANTASTIC!

If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator and sign up between May 5 – June 2 you will receive a box of eight 2015-2016 annual catalogs, in addition to eight 2014-2015 annual catalogs, in your Starter Kit order.

2015-16 Stampin' Up Catalog June 2

Beginning in June, we'll have a brand new catalog of exciting Stampin' Up! products. And that means I will get to welcome tons of NEW things for you to play with and see!

But for next couple of weeks, I want to share with you some of Stampin' Up's goodies before they retire.

Yippee-Skippee Card


To make this card I used the #131344 Yippee-Skippee stamp set, #132967 Starburst Framelits, #130136 2013-2015 DSP, #137783 Birthday Bash DSP, #131297 Coastal Cabana Cardstock and the #131178 Strawberry Slush Stampin' Pad.

I am really going to miss the Coastal Cabana and

A Fond Farewell

It's time to say Good-bye to some very AWESOME products so grab a box of tissues and your Stampin’ Up! Catalog, because it’s getting down to the wire and they will be gone before you know it. Please remember that once these items sell out, they are not returning. They will be gone!

Happy Birthday Cards

On Friday my BFF came over and we laughed, crafted and ate lunch. And I made some much needed Birthday cards! 






I am so sorry that you are unable to order the #137363 Hello You Thinlits right now. There is ongoing contract negotiations between the International Longshore & Warehouse Union and Pacific Maritime Association resulting in massive delays. I spoke to Stampin' Up and they will be available but do not have an estimated date. I will keep you posted. They have been updating us on the progress of this situation.


FYI...Photopolymer Stamps
  
Did you know that you can not use Black StazOn on your Photopolymer stamp sets? It will stain your polymer and StazOn Remover will damage the stamp. Black StazOn is for red rubber only. Your best option for stamping with black and Photopolymer is to use #132708 Tuxedo Black Momento Ink.  

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
