Not Much Time Left

Hey there folks, we're winding down on the 2014-2015 Catalog and retiring products will soon be unavailable forever. So, if you still have that wish list you better get it now because after Tuesday, they will be gone. As a matter of fact, many things have already sold out, but there is still many stamps available yet but as I said, not for long.
Happy Stamping!!

A Little Scrappin'

Well I put together a scrap layout of my favorite Tucker. This was 3 years ago when he was a teeny tiny puppy. He was so cute! He's still absolutely adorable although I may be a bit prejudice as his mommy, but I do think he has THE sweetest little face. Anyway, the first photo shows him visiting his gampa in the hospital after his gallbladder surgery cheering him up. He sure does love his gampa! And the second photo shows him napping with his favorite stuffed toy, Lamb Chop lol!

I mixed some of my Project Life for Stampin' Up! with traditional scrap booking. I used some retiring product as well like the Argyle embossing folder. I'm really liking the Daffodil Delight mixed with Bermuda Bay and Tangelo Twist, I think the colors really pop together. What do you think? I added some of the Bermuda Bay sequins for a little "glitz" and I stamped the heart from the Work of Art stamp set onto the 6 sided shaped wood veneer with the Tangelo Twist ink and layered it onto a 6 sided punched Tangelo Twist piece. I hope this inspires you to mix up your supplies and just have some fun preserving your memories.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Let's not forget what today is really all about, remembering those who have sacrificed the ultimate price for our freedom. Thank you to all those who have and are serving our great nation. Your service is greatly appreciated and may God Bless you!

I'm still playing with my stamps that are going to retire on June 2nd. I want to get as much use out of them as I can before my attentions get focused on all that great new stuff coming out then. Speaking of which, have you received your new catalog yet? If not, and you would like one, please send me your name and address and I will get one into the mail to you immediately. So much wonderfulness between those little covers.......I digress, I need to focus, but as soon as the new catalog crosses my mind, I start dreaming!

Anyway, todays project uses the retiring Hello Darling stamp set, the retiring In-Colors and the retiring Banners Bigz Die and I made a triple fork bow too!

More Good-Byes

Here is another great set of products that are going away, Here I used the Color Box Chalk Ink to create the background using Saran Wrap! Isn't that a cool background? I love this technique! It's fast, it's easy and it looks soooo cool!

Saying Good-Bye to Some Old Favorites

I had the opportunity to sneak off into my craft room over the weekend in between weeding the flowerbed and yard work and housework. While I was in there, I reviewed the retirement list again and decided to "say good-bye" the best way I know how, and that is to show these wonderful stamps and products some "love" By using them. Over the next few days I will be sharing my examples using these retiring products. Here is today's example: An Easel card using "Stippled Blossom" and "A Million and One", both beautiful stamp sets. The sentiment is from "Blooming with Kindness" another beautiful set going away June 2nd.

For Dad

I got to come home and head into the craft room this evening and decided to work on a card for dad...Father's Day is just around the corner! I decided to use Moon Lake since it will be going away very soon. Yes, I got to get a sneak peak into the up coming 2015-2016 Annual catalog and Moon Lake did not make the cut....but OMG! There is so much awesomeness packed into that catalog that I can barely contain myself to wait until 6/2! This is going to be the hardest 4 weeks to wait for a catalog to go live EVER! Speaking of catalogs, if you would like a catalog, please let me know and I will make sure that you get one. Just use the "contact me" link and provide me your name and address and I will be sure to get one to you once they are available, OH MY! Wait until you see the new In-colors,,,,can we say GORGEOUS!! And the best part...they blend with the 2014-2016 In-colors! And the new stamp sets? To die for! New ribbons and embellishments and awesome new dies for the Big Shot!!!
Ok, without further ado, here is the Dad's day card!
